Trout DNA Injection

Trout DNA injections involve the use of DNA extracted from the sperm of trout to rejuvenate and repair the skin.

This treatment capitalises on the regenerative properties of natural biocompatible DNA to stimulate cell growth and healing. It is believed to activate the metabolic activity of skin cells, encouraging the production of new collagen and elastin.

What is Plinest?

PLINEST® is an injectable product made from Polynucleotide-Highly Purified Technology (PN-HPT) safely extracted from trout DNA. Polynucleotides are chains of nucleotides, like those found in DNA or RNA, and are compatible with human skin, helping to stimulate fibroblasts for skin regeneration.

Polynucleotide-Highly Purified Technology (PN-HPT) ensures that DNA fractions are extracted from top-quality Italian farmed trout in a fully controlled environment. This patented process guarantees effective results from the purest form of polynucleotides.

Indications for Trout DNA Injection

Trout DNA injection can be used for various purposes. Here are some of the main uses:

  • Dull and Dry Skin: Environmental factors, ageing, and lifestyle choices can leave your skin looking dull and feeling dry.
  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Over time, the skin’s natural collagen production decreases, leading to fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Scars: Scars can be a result of acne and old scar tissues.
  • Eye Rejuvenation: The delicate skin around the eyes is prone to dark circles, puffiness, eye bags and loss of elasticity.
  • Pigmentation Issues: Various types of pigmentation and age spots can make the skin tone uneven.

​​Areas Eligible for Trout DNA Injection

Trout DNA injection is beneficial for enhancing skin appearance in several areas:

Benefits of Trout DNA Injection

Trout DNA injection offers a range of benefits for skin rejuvenation and healing. Here are some of the key advantages:

Enhanced Skin Quality & Regeneration

The polynucleotide hydrogel polynucleotide (PN-HPT) in trout DNA stimulates cellular growth and promotes self-repair. This leads to improved skin regeneration, maintaining skin elasticity, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Improved Skin Texture, Elasticity, and Hydration

Regular treatments enhance the smoothness and hydration of the skin, making it look more youthful and radiant. PN-HPT’s 3D structure supports tissue firmness and retains moisture, providing a dewy and healthy appearance.

Reduction in Scarring

By promoting tissue repair, trout DNA injections can significantly improve the appearance of various types of scars, including those from acne.

The Procedure for Trout DNA Injection

The procedure for administering trout DNA injection using Plinest is straightforward and designed to maximise benefits and minimise discomfort. Here’s a step-by-step overview:


Initially, a consultation takes place. During this session, the patient’s skin condition is assessed, expectations are discussed, and suitability for the treatment is determined.


Before the procedure, the target area is thoroughly cleansed to minimise the risk of infection. A topical anaesthetic may be applied to the area to ensure comfort during the injection process.


Using a fine needle or cannula, the Plinest solution containing trout DNA is carefully injected into the predetermined areas of the skin. The technique and depth of injection can vary depending on the specific treatment goals, such as rejuvenation, scar treatment, or hydration.

Post-Injection Care

Immediately after the injection, minor redness or swelling may occur. The area may be lightly massaged to ensure even distribution of the product.


The entire procedure usually takes about 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. Patients can typically return to their normal activities shortly after the procedure.

Downtime Expectations for Trout DNA Injection

Trout DNA injection, known for its minimal invasiveness and rapid recovery, is typically favoured for its convenience and effectiveness. Patients considering this treatment should be aware of the expected downtime to optimise healing and outcomes.

Immediate Post-Procedure Period

Immediately after receiving trout DNA injections, patients may notice some redness, swelling, or minor bruising at the injection sites. These symptoms are generally mild and resolve within a few hours to a couple of days.

Routine Activities

Most patients can resume their routine activities immediately after the procedure, making trout DNA injections an ideal choice for those seeking aesthetic improvements without significant downtime.

Aftercare and Maintenance

Proper aftercare following trout DNA injections ensures the best results and minimises any potential side effects. Here are some general guidelines for post-treatment care:

  • Avoid Touching or Massaging the Treated Area
    For the first 24 hours after the procedure, avoid rubbing or massaging the treated areas to prevent spreading the product to unintended sites.
  • Stay Out of the Sun
    Protect the treated areas from direct sunlight and UV exposure for at least 48 hours to reduce the risk of inflammation and allow the skin to heal. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen when going outdoors.
  • Skip Strenuous Exercise
    It’s recommended to avoid vigorous physical activities for 24 to 48 hours after the injections to minimise swelling and bruising.
  • Avoid Heat Exposure
    Stay away from hot environments like saunas, steam rooms, or hot yoga classes for the first few days after treatment. High temperatures can increase swelling and cause the product to degrade faster.
  • Use Gentle Skin Care Products
    For a few days following the injections, use gentle, non-irritating skincare products and avoid abrasive treatments or chemical peels until the skin has fully recovered.
  • Monitor for Signs of Infection
    Keep an eye on the injection sites for signs of infection, such as excessive redness, swelling, or pus. Seek medical attention immediately if you suspect an infection.
