Restylane Skinboosters treatments can be used to improve the general skin quality of your face but also to improve exposed and sensitive areas such as your neck, décolletage and hands as well as areas with acne-scarred skin.
Over time, the quality of your skin changes – collagen and elastic fibers disintegrate, and the spread and function of the body’s own hyaluronic acid change, making your skin drier, rougher and less elastic. Restylane Skinboosters™ treatments can be used to improve the general skin quality of your face but also to improve exposed and sensitive areas such as your neck, décolletage. It is also beneficial to areas with mild acne scarring*. Skin will feel smoother, tighter and look brighter*.
How does it work?
Contrary to the corrective use of fillers (filling lines, adding volume, correcting contours) , which are injected deeper below the skin, Skinboosters™ is placed just below the skin to improve the quality of the skin itself. Hydrating microinjections of hyaluronic acid enhance skin turgor and texture by improving hydration within the layers of the skin. Irregularities and fine lines are diminished, creating smooth supple skin*.
About hyaluronic acid:
While collagen and elastin fibres form the matrix or scaffolding of the skin, hyaluronic acid is the main substance that fills the scaffolding. This naturally occurring substance in the human body has amazing water-binding capacity and gives youthful skin its turgor, resilience and pliability. Naturally produced hyaluronic acid lasts in the skin for only one day, but is vigorously replenished in youthful skin. Daily external injury, as well as the natural process of aging, result in a depletion of hyaluronic acid. The skin can become dry and dull with the beginnings of fine lines as a result.
Skinboosters™ is a synthetically produced stabilized hyaluronic acid that is made to persist longer in the skin, resulting in lasting results*. It has been available in Europe for over 10 years and has finally been released into Canada to fill this much needed void of filler category.
How many treatments will I need?
Each treatment involves a series of hydrating microinjections into treatment areas. A typical treatment program with Restylane Skinboosters is made up of three monthly treatment sessions followed by a fourth treatment session 6 months later. For optimal maintenance of results, it is recommended that one treatment be done about every 6 months.
Am I a candidate for this treatment?
Restylane Skinboosters™ is a multi-purpose product line suitable for men and women of all ages and skin types. It is the perfect treatment for those who are looking for better skin quality and do not require or desire the volumizing effects of deeper dermal fillers. While more mature skin requires a program of four treatments as described above, younger patients also love a single treatment in preparation for an event where they desire a glowing complexion.
