Sunekos® formula has been proved by studies (1) (2) to be able to stimulate the fibroblasts of the dermis reproducing both collagen and elastin, key elements for Extracellular Matrix (ECM) regeneration.
Sunekos® acts against the process of ageing in a natural way respecting your natural face contour. Therefore it is not a filler, as it is non-crosslinked, and is good alternative for clients who do not want filler or wrinkle relaxing treatments.
Sunekos is great for clients who are concerned with:
- Loss of skin tone, sagging and severe wrinkles
- Skin ageing
- Loss of hydration
- Acne scarring
- Sun damage
- Dark circles under eyes
- Fine lines and wrinkles
Sunekos 200 is particularly effective in the Periocular Area, to reduce dark circles and bags, and on the Forehead.

Sunekos is a blend of HA and amino acids, Profhilo is different levels of concentrated HA
Effects of Sunekos generally lasts for 6-9 months, this however can depend on the individuals rate of metabolism and on how fast the hyaluronic acid is absorbed. With repeated treatments the effects tend to last longer and clients can have smaller top ups every 6-12 months.
Yes, your practitioner will massage the treated areas in one of two methods to provide maximum results
The Interstitial Fluid Technique is an injection technique developed by Professional Dietetics medical team to get faster results especially in the first phase
Using this injection technique and following with lymphatic massage towards the lymph nodes vastly improves the apearaqnce of wrinkles and fine lines for optimal results.
The RIFT technique involves massage in the opposite way of the lymph nodes. This will build and fill out the tissues giving a fuller effect to the area treated. This is good for clients with hollow features.
