SkinBoosters are an alternative approach to nourishing your skin, especially designed to deliver longer lasting, structured skin hydration. Increasing hydration levels within the skin deliver lasting moisturisation and improvements on the skin’s surface, creating a fresh and natural look. Skinboosters improve the skin's firmness, elasticity and radiance in a subtle and gradual way that is natural but noticeably invigorating
The treatment involves hydrating microinjections of a soft, gel-like substance called Hyaluronic Acid (HA) into the skin, which improves the skin’s firmness, elasticity and radiance. Water-loving HA is found naturally in the body where it maintains hydration in the skin. As we age, the quality of our HA diminishes over time. SkinBoosters replenish and maintain natural hydration levels from within using the stabilised HA.
The Restylane range of Skinboosters are stabilized Hyaluronic Acid products which ensures a long-term effect.
Restylane Skinboosters can be used to treat a range of areas including the face, neck, decolletage and hands. They are most commonly used on the lower face, and are a perfect treatment for smokers lines. Skinboosters work to improve skin texture and hydration around the mouth, chin, and lower cheek. Restylane Skinboosters are extremely effective at reducing the appearance of acne scarring and revitalising dehydrated skin.
By our late twenties, the fibroblasts within the skin stop producing so much of the skins own natural elastin, collagen and HA. Skinboosters are a course of treatment, three sessions are placed 2- 4 weeks apart. That uses micro injections that wake up the skins fibroblasts and encourage increased production of the skins natural moisturizers. This in turn increases cell turn over, which gives a lasting effect to treatment beyond the course of treatment. The addition of Hyaluronic Acid acts as a plumping and firming agent, giving the skin a more youthful, radiant appearance from within.
Restylane Skinboosters are suitable for all skin types. Skin Boosters are versatile treatments that can be used for men and women of all skin types, for people with younger or more mature skin, for the face, neck, hands and decolletage, and for people who want to improve skin structure e.g. in acne-scarred or photo-damaged skin.
The average effects of the initial treatment will last 6 months, from then on it is advised that you have 1 treatment every 6 months to maintain the results.
All patients need to attend the practice for a full aesthetic consultation to check your medical hits, discuss treatment options, the treatment plan and what to expect after the procedure with you.
You will be advised to arrive 20-30 minutes before your appointment time to apply local anesthetic cream. On each visit I will administer a series of tiny, fine-needle injections into the mid to deep dermis (the underlying layer of the skin.) These micro injections will focus on your problem areas as discussed in your consultation. During the procedure, some people experience minimal discomfort. Each treatment session usually takes around 20 mins.
