Aging and Hyaluronic Acid

Ageing determines a decrease of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), reduction of fibroblasts activity.

Sunekos Performa is the latest innovation in aesthetic medicine research from Sunekos Laboratories.

It is composed of low molecular weight HA and the patented cluster of Amino Acids (AA), the HY6AA formula, in a new ratio “AA vs HA” allowing a significant reduction of the hyaluronidase action. [1;2;3;4]

A study on Sunekos Performa demonstrated that the presence of its specific combination of AAs (HY6AA formula), with their ancillary action, helps to decrease the degradation of HA by reducing the Hyaluronidase process. [1]

Therefore, the study suggests that Sunekos Performa, thanks to the new ratio “AA versus HA”, will persist longer and it will be more effective as the HA stimulation can last over an extended period. [1] [6]

This action has been confirmed by:

  1. contrasting the hydrophilic properties of HA employing the 6AA hydrophobic Amino Acids formula; [1]
  2. contrasting the overall negative electrical charge of HA using a strong positively charged Amino Acid as Lysine [1]

HA Action

Sunekos Performa helps to rebuild the Extra Cellular Matrix (ECM) in a more effective and complete way, by promoting the production of:

  • Elastin (Eln). [5]
  • Collagen, including all main types of reticular collagen fibres of the dermis and Type IV and Type VII (anchoring types, plaques and fibres). [5]

  • Elastin
  • Collagen Type IV Anchors Plaque
  • Collagen Type VII Anchors Fibrils
  • Collagen Type IV Anchors Plaque
  • Collagen Type VII Anchors Fibrils
  • Fibronectin plays a major role in cell adhesion, and in anchoring reticular collagen fibres and cells.

Indication: wrinkles and skin laxity

A study on ten patients on safety and efficacy of Sunekos Performa demonstrated that [6]
