Juvelook and Lenisna: Hybrid Collagen Boosters for Youthful, Glowing Skin

Juvelook and Lenisna are innovative hybrid dermal fillers that combine the power of hyaluronic acid and polylactic acid (PLLA) to stimulate collagen production and rejuvenate the skin. These treatments hail from Korea, known for its skincare innovations.

What is Juvelook and Lenisna?

Juvelook and Lenisna combines Poly-D, L-Lactic Acid (PDLLA) and Hyaluronic Acid (HA) to stimulate the skin’s collagen production in treated areas – treating fine lines, scars, reducing pores and enhancing the brightness and hydration in the skin. This combination treatment marries the immediate filling effects of HA and the long-term stimulation of collagen production by PDLLA

Lenisna and Juvelook differ in the particle size of PDLLA, the concentration of this ingredient and the concentration of hyaluronic acid, and are developed for different applications.

Juvelook: 42.5 mg PDLLA + 7.5 mg non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid, particle size from 10 to 40 micrometers.

Lenisna: 170 mg of PDLLA + 30 mg of non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid, particle size from 50 to 60 micrometers.

What is Poly-D, L-Lactic Acid (PDLLA)?

Poly-D, L-Lactic Acid (PDLLA) is a key ingredient in Juvelook and Lenisna dermal fillers. PDLLA is a biocompatible and biodegradable polymer derived from natural sources, approved by the FDA for use in the human body. 

Featuring a unique patented structure with a spherical, foamy outer layer and a reticular, porous inner structure, PDLLA maximizes the surface area for effective collagen stimulation. This design also minimizes damage to surrounding tissues and allows for a slower, more controlled decomposition, preventing drastic pH changes. 

Clinical studies have shown a significant increase in collagen production and a gradual reduction of PDLLA particles in the dermis over time, demonstrating the long-lasting rejuvenating benefits of this collagen-boosting technology.

Effects of Juvelook

Juvelook is suitable for:

  • Dark eye circles and undereye bags
  • Volume loss at the lower eyelid
  • A marked tear trough
  • Wrinkles, fine lines
  • Scars (acne scars, C-section scar,s stretch marks)
  • Thin skin

The small particles of PDLLA in Juvelook evenly volumise the skin and enhance skin texture by boosting collagen in the dermis layer.

Effects of Lenisna

Due to the higher concentration of PDLLA, Lenisna is suitable for:

  • Patients with clear signs of ageing (40+)
  • Folds in the skin
  • Wrinkles and furrows
  • Face drooping and skin laxity

As Lenisna is suitable for application in subcutaneous or periosteal tissue, it can help to treat deep wrinkles, laxity and significant tissue defects.

Treatment with Juvelook & Lenisna

Step 1

A personalised consultation with our doctors at Eagle Aesthetics & Surgery to understand you skincare concerns and goals to determine the appropriate preparation to use.

Step 2

Anaesthesia is performed at the injection site to ensure comfort during the procedure. The injection is also reconstituted and prepared in the meantime.

Step 3

The procedure is performed with a needle or a cannula. Juvelook is applied to the lower part of the dermis, while Lenisna is applied to the subcutaneous or periosteal tissue

There is no need to massage the post-treatment areas due to the unique round shape of PDLLA acid molecules and its combination with non-cross-linked HA.

What to expect After Treatment with Juvelook & Lenisna

On the 1st and 2nd day after the procedure, you may experience slight swelling and bruising, especially in sensitive areas such as the eyes. The swelling usually subsides by the third day.
For Juvelook, mild haematomas may form due to large number of punctures in the case of mesotherapy. Your doctor will advise accordingly if this is an effect to look out for.
To ensure ideal treatment outcomes, it is important to follow post-treatment instructions:
  • Keep the treatment site clean
  • Avoid sun exposure
  • Do not visit spas or do facials on the day of treatment
