Beauty really IS pain! Bizarre new wrinkle-defying trend that involves paying ... trends now

A new beauty trend that involves getting salmon sperm injected into your face can leave your skin bruised and covered in specs of blood. 

That's according to advocates of the wrinkle-defying tweakment.

As well as Botox-like effects, polynucleotides – which can cost in the region of £400 – are said to give customers a 'baby face' and rejuvenated skin.

But TikTok videos posted by women who have had the injections show them left with lumpy skin that looks like 'bee stings'.

Others have showed pictures of them being left with bruises and dried blood, saying the old adage of 'beauty is pain' really is true. 

Aesthetic nurses who offer the treatment insist the bruising is only temporary.

One TikTok user with nearly 10,000 followers said that she 'looked like an absolute lunatic at dinner'. 

She showed her post-injected face, which was covered in small lumps, specs of dried blood and small bruises. 

'Basically salmon sperm equals baby face and this is what I have to go through for now,' she said.

'I have got little bumps and bruises on my face. But beauty is pain, am I right?'

An aesthetic nurse based in Surrey with just over 1,000 followers also posted her face just after getting the treatment under her eyes. 

Although the video showed her eyes were visibly swollen, she said the treatment caused 'minimal' pain and she 'could hardly feel it'. 

She added that she had a 'little swelling' that subsided that evening and completely disappeared by day three.

Another TikTok video posted by someone with more than 4,800 followers showed her getting the injections at a clinic. 

Afterwards, her face was lumpy and covered in blood. However, at the end of the video she shared her blemish-free skin completely healed. 

Advocates say polynucleotides offer a 'natural' alternative to other traditional 'tweakments' such as Botox and filler. 

Some doctors claim it is safer than other cosmetic injectables, which have been linked to a catalogue of complications including blocked blood vessels, lumpy skin and infections. 

It typically uses purified and sterilised DNA molecules extracted from salmon or trout sperm, known as polynucleotides which have anti-inflammatory effects. 

South Korea's aesthetics sector has been using the treatment for over a decade but it's now gaining popularity among Western celebrities, including Jennifer Aniston, who told The Wall Street Journal she is reaping its skin rejuvenating qualities.
