What are Restylane Skinboosters?
It's like an injectable moisturiser! They do not change the shape, volume or muscle-movement of your face.
It is a treatment which has been used for the last 20 years designed to improve skin hydration, firmness, elasticity and smoothness, manifesting as a healthy glow. Fine lines are diminished. Each treatment involves a series of hydrating microinjections of long-lasting hyaluronic acid, a water-loving molecule found naturally in the body that maintains hydration in the skin. Our natural hyaluronic acid breaks down very quickly and contributes to an aged appearance.
Where can it be used?
How does it compare to other treatments?
Treatments that it can be compared to are mesotherapy and Profhilo, where the effects do not last as long. Restylane Skinboosters are made with cross-linked hyaluronic acid meaning the result lasts up to 12 months.
How may treatments will I need?
This is assessed at the consultation, but one will notice improvement in skin integrity after the first treatment. Usually 3 treatment sessions are provided 2-4 weeks apart, with a maintenance session every 6 months.
What are the side effects? There may be a little redness, swelling or pinprick bruising, which usually settles after 48 hours.
