About Sunekos

Sunekos was developed in Italy after research into intravenous injection of amino acids was shown to improve recovery from a large number of illnesses. Sunekos combines a high concentration of amino acids (the body's building blocks) with hyaluronic acid dermal filler). It can be used in all areas of the face and neck to stimulate collagen production, improve hydration and tighten the skin. It is especially good in skin over 50 or where there has been a lot of sun damage that has resulted in fine and deep wrinkles.

The Problem

The Problem

As we age we lose the collagen in our skin which means the skin ‘stretches’ causing fine lines and wrinkles. This is especially so in skin that has been exposed to a lot of sun or smoke. Here it can be difficult to stimulate the skin to start producing collagen again. Certain areas of the face also do not require the volume that filler gives, just the tightening that Sunekos gives.

How It Works

The Problem

After the skin has been numbed using local anaesthetic cream multiple injections of Sunekos are administered. The act of injecting alone will stimulate the skin to repair but when amino acids are injected they immediately give the skin the building blocks to produce collagen thus tightening the skin. The hyaluronic acid further improves the results and enables the skin to stay plump and hydrated.

Depending on your area of concern Dr Ros can do more injections where it is needed. Dr Ros always uses the whole vial of Sunekos so can often do 2, if not 3 areas of the face.

A course of 3 is done, 7-10 days apart. Each time the skin ‘remembers how it needs to respond’ the results get even better. The skin continues to get better even 3 months after a treatment.

Dr Ros’s latest ‘recipe’ using Sunekos combined with Aliaxin SR is great for improving the texture and tightening up the neck area. Aliaxin SR is a specific dermal filler that is used in the neck area. It is introduced using a cannula at the time of the first Sunekos treatment. Aliaxin SR for neck £395. Aliaxin SR + Sunekos neck £595

Profhilo injections plump, hydrate and stimulate collagen but do not contain amino acids, the building blocks of collagen. Profhilo is injected at specific points on the face and neck whereas Sunekos is injected just in the areas of concern.

Sunekos can be used anywhere on the face and neck. It is particularly effective in treating the crow’s feet area.

Because there are multiple injections there may be some bruising hence we say that there may be up to 10 days downtime until the bruising disappears although this may not happen. There will be some initial swelling but this is usually only for up to 24 hours.

The studies have shown that 3 treatments 7-10 days apart give the best results. Really this is like ‘training the skin to make collagen’.

This really depends on what else you are doing for your skin. Most people start on the monthly membership plans which means the skin is stimulated on a monthly basis with varying treatments advised by our aestheticians. Using our ZO medical grade skin care products improves the results as does taking the Skinade collagen supplelment drinks.
