TKN HA3

A new concept in biorevitalisation with triple action

The skin undergoes changes over time. To prevent premature ageing, injections of non cross-linked hyaluronic acid compensate for the natural loss of this substance while providing many other benefits. Discover a new concept in biorevitalisation with triple action:

  • Strengthens the skin’s protective barrier

  • Revitalises skin so it looks and feels softer, smoother and radiantly hydrated

  • Rehydrates: hydro-balance restoration

Frequently Asked Questions

What is TKN HA3?


TKN HA3 is a long-lasting high molecular weight non cross-linked hyaluronic acid biorevitalising mesotherapy. Thanks to HYAsep® technology, it obtains a larger molecule that degrades much more slowly and therefore has a longer-lasting effect. The amount of water retained is greater, thus providing more plumpness. Same molecular weight as that found naturally in the dermis: 3,000 kDa.




How is it different from other fillers?


While both use the same component, they work very differently. Dermal filler is injected to enhance a specific area such as the lips and cheeks, and it does not typically migrate to the surrounding skin. In this way, it augments your natural facial structure to produce more angular cheekbones or plumper lips.

TKN HA3 works very differently because it is made of 100% hyaluronic acid, while dermal fillers have other components. Because it is made of a completely natural skin substance, it blends into our skin seamlessly and distributes itself evenly. The treatment helps to retain moisture levels in the skin while boosting the production of collagen and elastin, essential skin proteins, to refresh the skin from the inside-out.




Are there side effects?


Mild swelling and bruising are the most common potential side effects immediately following treatment.

Consultations are an important part of the treatment process in allowing you to understand the treatment and to establish if the benefits of the treatment are outweighed by any possible side effects. During a consultation, your characteristics, such as your area of concern and your medical status, will be assessed. Your therapist will discuss any possible side effects, questions you may have and any aftercare you should adhere to prior to you having treatment.

How long does TKN HA3 last?


As with most treatments, this can vary depending on where you have treated, your lifestyle and your metabolic rate; these factors usually influence the longevity of your results. For example, in our experience, those who smoke or frequently do cardio work-outs can break-down hyaluronic acid faster than those who do not.

The guidelines are to have maintenance treatments four to seven months after your full treatment.




How much does TKN HA3 cost?


We tailor make our treatments to suit your aims, objectives, and personal characteristics. At your Free Consultation we will discuss a payment plan convenient for you. To give you an idea of price: £180 per treatment, £480 for a course of 3 (£160 per treatment).

Pre & Post Treatment Advice


Pre Treatment Advice

  • Do NOT consume alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to treatment (alcohol may thin the blood and increase the risk of bruising)
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications, if possible for a period of 2 weeks before treatment. Medications and supplements such as aspirin, vitamin E, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Omega 3/Fish Oil supplements, Ibuprofen, aspirin and other NSAIDS have a blood thinning effect and can increase the risk of bruising and swelling after injections.
  • Discontinue Retin-A 2 days before and 2 days after treatment.
  • Reschedule your appointment at least 24 hours in advance if you have a rash, cold sore or blemish on the area.
  • If you have a history of cold sores please let your provider know, use your anti-viral medication prior to treatment.
  • Be sure to have a good breakfast, including food and drink before your procedure. This will decrease the chances of lightheadedness during your treatment.

  • There may be some redness, swelling, tenderness, bruising which should settle within days.
  • Clean your face with a gentle cleanser and warm water
  • Try to sleep on your back for the first night
  • Try not to wear makeup.
  • Use creams with antioxidants and hyaluronic acid to reduce irritation and hydrate the skin.

  • Try to sleep face up and slightly elevated if you experience swelling.
  • Take Arnica to help the bruising and swelling, start at least 2 days prior to injections.

  • DRINK PLENTY OF WATER - this will help with the hydrating effcet of the treatment




How many session will I need?


You will have 3 sessions each one month apart. You can see a marked improvement as the treatments progress, but the entire course of 3 must be completed for the area to get the intended results.




Where can be treated using TKN HA3?


TKN HA3 can be used on all areas of the face, except for under the eyes and on any part of the body that requires biorevitalisation, except the breasts. TKN HA3 can treat various indications, including; loss of tone, skin ageing and premature skin ageing, skin dryness, solar elastosis, acne scarring, sun damage, and fine lines and wrinkles. Its a great targeted treatment for smokers lines and younger clients who want to prevent lines and wrinkle.




What should I expect having my treatment?


This treatment is not painful to have done but some may find it a little stingy. If preferred, local anaesthetic cream can be applied to numb the areas where treatment will be carried out. The treatment is given via mesotherapy, consists of several very small injections and the downtime after this treatment is very minimal. Generally, the treatment is given over 3 sessions at 7-10 days apart which is necessary to optimise results. These can be planned at the time of booking. A review appointment is offered at 8 weeks after the last treatment. Results can last for about 6 months but this can vary from person to person, it is therefore recommended in order to maintain a great result, to have further treatments in 6 months. It may be possible to have just 1-2 treatments at this time. Immediately following treatment, you may experience symptoms of stinging, discomfort, slight swelling and erythema (redness) which should disappear after a few hours. You may experience some bruising; these should resolve soon.




Is TKN HA3 vegan?


Hyaluronic acid is vegan as it is derived from plant extracts or artificially synthesized. Having said this, Profhilo will have been tested on animals at some point, as this is a legal requirement.




Which Advanced Skin Booster should I choose?


We use the top 3 advanced skin boosters in the industry at the moment, SuneKOS, Profhilo and TNK HA3.

All are hyaluronic acid based and slightly different properties to bring the best results for different conditions and skin types.

If you would like to discuss the best skin booster for you, book in a consultation with Vicki Hexter and she can design the best treatment to suit your needs.
