Risk Complication



Being aware of associated risks for treatment is essential for gaining informed consent. Polynucleotide is considered a low risk treatment but It is important you are aware of any risks that can occur. 

  • Injection site reactions – as with any type of injection there is usually a mild inflammatory response at the puncture site which can result in redness, swelling, bruising and tenderness. These reactions tend to be mild and resolve within a few days.
  • Infection – there is a small risk of infection with any procedures that involve puncturing the skin. These risks are minimised by using aseptic techniques and ensuring exceptional levels of hygiene. 
  • Allergic reaction – allergic reactions to the constituent elements of the polynucleotide formula can occur. Hence a comprehensive medical history is obtained prior to administering treatment.
  • Temporary Discomfort – Some patients may experience discomfort or itching at the injection sites. However this tends to resolve within a quick timeframe.
