Restylane® SkinBoosters for Beautiful Skin
Restore Your Skin’s Radiance from Within
As we age, our skin changes beyond fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss. The skin’s structure itself loses elasticity, thins, and loses radiance and hydration. The main culprit behind these changes? The gradual depletion of Hyaluronic Acid within the skin cells.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a natural sugar found in many structures of our body, including our skin. It’s responsible for much of our skin’s elasticity and moisture. In fact, HA molecules can attract and retain up to 1000 times their weight in water. Unfortunately, our bodies start producing less HA as early as our thirties, gradually decreasing the skin’s ability to retain moisture. That’s where Restylane® SkinBoosters come in.
Restoring Hydration, Tone, and Elasticity
Restylane® SkinBoosters address the loss of hydration, tone and elasticity in aging skin. Available in Europe for over 12 years, and already a favourite treatment of European women, Restylane® SkinBoosters treatments are finally available in Canada.
This aesthetic procedure is like no other. Using a unique stabilized form of cross-linked HA, Restylane® SkinBoosters are designed to naturally integrate the deeper layer of the skin. SkinBoosters are currently indicated to improve skin’s smoothness, tone, appearance, and elasticity of the:
- Lower cheeks and jawline;
- The neck; and
- The back of the hands.
How it Works
Restylane® SkinBoosters are injected using Smartclick syringes designed to consistently deliver precise 0.01 cc droplets of HA, allowing a homogeneous distribution of HA in the skin of the treated zones.
Appropriate for men and women of all skin types, Restylane® SkinBooster treatments are used:
- To improve skin appearance, tone, elasticity and hydration;
- Complement other dermal filler and volumizer treatments; and
- As a preventative treatment in younger patients.
Restylane® SkinBoosters treatments are not to be confused with Mesotherapy. They are different from Mesotherapy in two significant respects. First, the HA used in SkinBoosters is cross linked, which leads to clinical improvements that last up to 6 months. The effects of Mesotherapy, which uses non cross-linked HA, are much shorter-lived, lasting from a few days to weeks.
The second difference is that with Mesotherapy, the HA is injected intradermally, or just at the surface of the skin, while SkinBoosters inject the cross-linked HA subdermally, depositing the HA within the deep layers of the skin.
Restylane® SkinBoosters come in two formulations, Vital and Vital Light. Restylane® SkinBooster Vital Light is the perfect formulation for preventative treatment in younger clients. It is also used for the delicate skin of the neck. Restylane® SkinBooster Vital is for more mature skin, the lower face, cheeks, and jawline area, as well as the back of the hands.
When Can I Expect Results?
The recommended treatment protocol is one treatment a month for three months, followed by a fourth treatment at six months. A maintenance treatment can then be done every six to 12 months.
Restylane® SkinBoosters are a treatment that patients love. Clinical studies have shown that 96% of treated patients wanted to have it done again. The high satisfaction rate comes from the fact that after a treatment series, patients can feel that their skin is thicker, firmer, feels younger, has more elasticity ,and does not crinkle as much when they smile. It is like skin tightening, but from within
