Frequently Asked Questions
What is SuneKOS?
It’s a patented formula of amino acids and Hyaluronic acid that stimulates the production of collagen and elastin – which are the main structural components of the Extra Cellular Matrix (ECM). By repairing any damaged skin and boosting your own natural production of collagen and elastin, its rebuilds your skin through a process called dermal biogenesis – literally skin regeneration.
Is SuneKOS vegan?
Sunekos is the only vegan friendly, natural product that can stimulate the Collagen production within the skin by restoring elasticity and volume. Boosting Collagen type 5 & amino acids in the skin without going down the path of anti-wrinkle injections or filler.
Where can be treated using SuneKOS?
Sunekos can be used on any kind of dermis and in different parts of the body as: face, neck, décolleté and hands. Sunekos 200 is particularly effective in the Periocular Area, to reduce Dark Circles and Bags, and also on the Forehead.
Sunekos can treat various indications, including; loss of tone, skin ageing and premature skin ageing, skin dryness, solar elastosis, acne scarring, sun damage, dark circles under the eyes and fine lines and wrinkles.
How is it different to fillers?
Normal fillers contain Hyaluronic acid – which naturally occurs in the body and retains over 1,000 times its weight in water in the skin, keeping the area hydrated and moisturised.
Rather than just ‘filling in’ lines and wrinkles, Sunekos also contains a patented formula of amino acids, which are essential for the creation of healthy skin and promotes the body’s own production of collagen and elastin. This process rebuilds the dermal layers of the skin and restores the natural youthful look by tightening the area, improving skin hydration and texture and plumping wrinkles and lines out. It is excellent for those people who would prefer to have a more natural look and would like to avoid the use of cross-linked dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections.
Are there any side effects?
Mild swelling and bruising are the most common potential side effects immediately following treatment.
Consultations are an important part of the treatment process in allowing you to understand the treatment and to establish if the benefits of the treatment are outweighed by any possible side effects. During a consultation, your characteristics, such as your area of concern and your medical status, will be assessed. Your therapist will discuss any possible side effects, questions you may have and any aftercare you should adhere to prior to you having treatment.
Are there any side effects?
There is some redness and sensitivity of the skin for 2-3 days after treatment. Most people can continue with normal work and social activities a day after treatment.
How many sessions will I need?
You will have 4 sessions each one week apart. You can see a marked improvement as the treatments progress, but the entire course of 4 must be completed for the area to get the intended results.
Can everyone have SuneKOS?
The procedure is not recommended in case of pregnancy, breast feeding, skin inflammations and propensity to form keloids.
How long does SuneKOS last?
As with most treatments, this can vary depending on where you have treated, your lifestyle and your metabolic rate; these factors usually influence the longevity of your results. For example, in our experience, those who smoke or frequently do cardio work-outs can break-down hyaluronic acid faster than those who do not.
The guidelines are to have maintenance treatments four to seven months after your full treatment.
How much does SuneKos cost?
I tailor make your treatments to suit your aims, objectives, and personal characteristics. At your Free Consultation we will discuss a payment plan convenient for you.
To give you an idea of price:
£180 per treatment, £600 for a course of 4 (£150 per treatment).
What should I expect having my treatment?
This treatment is not painful to have done but some may find it a little stingy. If preferred, local anaesthetic cream can be applied to numb the areas where treatment will be carried out.
The treatment is given via mesotherapy, consists of several very small injections and the downtime after this treatment is very minimal.
Generally, treatment is given over 4 sessions at 7-10 days apart which is necessary to optimise results. These can be planned at the time of booking. A review appointment is offered at 8 weeks after the last treatment.
Results can last for about 6 months but this can vary from person to person, it is therefore recommended in order to maintain a great result, to have further treatments in 6 months. It may be possible to have just 1-2 treatments at this time.
For the treatment around the eyes, hands and forehead, the time between treatments is 14 days.
Immediately following treatment, you may experience symptoms of stinging, discomfort, slight swelling and erythema (redness) which should disappear after a few hours.
You may experience some bruising; these should resolve soon.
