Wrinkles, dark circles, dullness and loose skin are just some of the visible signs that come with ageing. Today, there’s a wider range of skin fillers and injectables available that promise to help rewind the effects of skin ageing, reduce wrinkles and boost collagen. One of them is Sunekos, a hyaluronic acid injectable that recently made its official debut in Singapore.
How does Sunekos work?
Sunekos is an internationally patented formula consisting of hyaluronic acid and six amino acids (HY6AA). The formula is patented under the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), which means that it’s original and exclusive to the brand. The unique dermal fillers help to treat and prevent skin ageing signs, by reducing expression lines and thin wrinkles, boosting superficial and deep skin hydration, promoting tissue regeneration, and restoring skin elasticity and facial volume loss.
This skin booster targets the Extracellular Matrix (ECM) – the regenerative system of the tissue – by stimulating fibroblast activity that promotes the natural production of collagen and elastin in the skin. Ageing causes a significant reduction in fibroblasts and cellular metabolic activity, resulting in a dip in collagen levels; this is what leads to those unwanted signs of skin ageing like wrinkles and laxity. By focusing on the ECM, collagen production is stimulated and skin rejuvenation can be achieved over time. The filler even boosts production of Type 4 collagen, which is the hardest type of collagen to reproduce.
Since its launch, Sunekos has become a popular injectable treatment in the UK and Europe. Singapore is the first country in Asia to launch the product, with the likes of South Korea and Taiwan to follow.
How is Sunekos different from other hyaluronic fillers?
Unlike most dermal fillers that only incorporate hyaluronic acids, Sunekos incorporates a specific and precise mix of six amino acids (HY6AA): Glycine, L-Proline. L- Alanine, L-Leucine, L-Lysine and L-Valine. This patented amino acid combination has been proven to restore the health and elasticity of the skin. The hyaluronic acid works as a carrier for the amino acids to bring them to the right layer of the skin; in this way, it targets the ECM where collagen, elastin and fibroblast activities take place. For this reason, the injectable can be used on multiple areas including the hands, face and delicate eye area, as well as the loose skin around the neck.
Who is Sunekos for?
This amino and hyaluronic acid injectable treatment is suitable for anyone from the age of 24 who might be concerned with skin-ageing issues like dark eye circles and eyebags, wrinkles, and loose skin. It’s also a great option to have for regular skin maintenance, as the amino acids work to promote natural collagen production in the skin.
Depending on your skin condition and lifestyle, four sessions of Sunekos are recommended for best results. However, for more specific treatments of problem areas, please consult a doctor for expert advice.

How to maximise your results
For longer-lasting results and skin maintenance, you can pair Sunekos with a daily dose of NutraKOS; this drinkable health supplement contains natural ingredients, plus the same patented amino acid mix to boost collagen and elastin production.
It’s also 100 percent bio-available, which means it’s fully absorbable into the body. This is unlike hydrolyzed protein, whereby only 20 percent gets absorbed and extra time is needed for it to get broken down.
