What areas can be treated?
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.
Who would be suitable for this treatment?
Anyone can benefit from the treatment, but in particular, people with dry, aged or dull skin, with large pores, will see the most results. People who have depressed acne scars will also benefit greatly.
How does it work?
Each treatment involves a series of hydrating microinjections of long-lasting hyaluronic acid, also called stabilised HA, a water-loving substance found naturally in the body that maintains hydration in the skin.
Stabilised HA is a soft, gel-like substance that absorbs water and brings deep skin hydration to the treated areas, giving it improved firmness, elasticity and smoothness.
Restylane Skinboosters reverse the skin aging process by reintroducing hyaluronic acid into the skin. Once injected, the water-loving hyaluronic acid molecules start to absorb water up to 200 times its weight and swell, bringing about profound hydration to the skin from inside out. With dramatically improved hydration, the skin looks plumper, brighter, and more youthful.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar molecule in our skin. It gives our skin the plumpness and hydration associated with youthful, healthy skin. However, over time, our skin loses collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, and it becomes drier, rougher and less elastic.
What are the side effects?
You should expect that there will be some minor bruising and swelling around the treatment areas for a day or two afterwards. Your practitioner may recommend a clean cooling pad to help reduce swelling.
While you may see results after just one treatment, for optimal results you will need an initial ‘start-up’ course of 3 treatment sessions 4 weeks apart. The body will gradually break down the H.A in Restylane Skinboosters over the course of the year. In order to sustain your new wonderful skin, it is recommended to have further treatments every 6 months. This very much depends on how you look after your body and skin in between times.
