What are Restylane Skinboosters?

Restylane SkinBoosters are a revolutionary anti-aging treatment, a non-surgical option for facial rejuvenation and skin restoration. Skinboosters naturally smooth and hydrate the skin from the inside. They result in luminous skin with a natural and beautiful glow.

Restylane SkinBoosters
Skinboosters are similar to dermal fillers in that they contain a naturally occurring substance which exists in our skin. This substance works to maintain hydration of the skin by binding closely with water and supporting vital collagen and elastin, which work to maintain the integrity and suppleness of our skin.

As we age, we lose collagen and elastin, resulting in the skins repair mechanisms slowing down creating poor skin tone and texture, lack of elasticity, and the formation of wrinkles and folds.

Restylane SkinBoosters

Unlike dermal fillers, Skinboosters do not add volume or structure to the skin – they work in more subtle ways to improve the overall skin balance and ‘boost’ the appearance of the skin.

There are two treatment protocols:

  1. Collagen stimulation: One treatment every month for 3 months – this stimulated the fibroblasts (special skin cells) to increase their collagen production.
  2. Maintenance regimen: One treatment every 3 to 4 months – to maintain skin hydration and glow – as well as to keep wrinkles at bay.

In addition to these two choices, one can also choose whether or not you can handle the downtime of multiple injections, or would prefer the use of a blunt cannula to limit swelling and busing.

Acne Treatments for Scars

Acne treatments are now available – with new technologies we can treat acne scars. Acne scars form as a result of severe acne in the teenage years or as an adult. They can be very disfiguring and can cause some emotional distress to the person that has them. Thankfully there are now acne treatments that work.

The best thing you can do for acne scars is to do microneedling for acne treatments. Microneedling is a treatment whereby the skin is needled and it is stimulated to heal. This healing process makes collagen which then fills in the acne scars. The best microneedling treatment is the Dermapen. The Dermapen is a machine that makes thousands of tiny holes in the skin. Before the treatment you get a numbing cream put on your face – this is so you don’t feel the needles. Usually the most you will feel is a small scratching sensation. Acne treatments for scars used to be very expensive – these days the treatment has become affordable thanks to the Dermapen.

Before and After the Dermapen.

For acne scars you will need around 4 treatments with the dermapen – one ever month. Acne treatments with the Dermapen typically leave you red directly after the treatment and for 3 or 4 days afterwards. Some people then get a light peel – like a sunburn peel. And by day 7 the skin usually looks like normal. Over the next month, the collagen is produced which then fills in all of those acne scars. Acne treatments with the Dermapen are a great way to treat scars!

Acne Scars

Acne Scars were once a doctors nightmare – but these days, they can be easily treated.  Acne a skin condition whereby the pores in the skin becomes blocked or clogged. The material blocking them is normally dead skin cells or sebum (a type of oil produced by each individual hair).  Interestingly enough, certain medications and creams can actually make acne worse! Most acne sufferers are teenagers – this is as they are going through hormonal changes as a result of puberty. The increase in hormones increases the skins oil production and the pores become blocked. Once the pore is blocked, it becomes irritated and it swells. Swelling can either take the form of a blackhead or a puss filled whitehead. Adults can also suffer from acne – this is known as Adult-type acne.

Mild to moderate acne generally only has blackheads and whiteheads and it generally doesn’t form scars – unless the acne is scratched, pressed or picked at by the person. So as a general rule, don’t ever pop acne pimples – you can form scars. That said, when acne is very bad it is called sever acne – and it is this form that can very easily form scars.

Severe acne has pimples which are large and sore to touch.

Acne scars form as any scars in our bodies do – as a result of trauma to the skin.  When the skin is broken or you get a cut the body quickly begins to heal itself by forming a scar in that area. When skin is broken and there is infection (like acne) there is a bad type of scarring that occurs – this is the reason for the deep acne scars.
