What are Restylane Skinboosters?

Restylane Skinboosters is 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.

Collagen & Elastin Therapy 

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.

Why we do use Restylane Skinboosters

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

Dermal Fillers vs 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.

The Restylane Skinbooster Protocol

  1. Collagen stimulation: 1 treatment is performed once a month for 3 consecutive months – this stimulates the fibroblasts (special skin cells) to increase their collagen and elastin production. 
  2. Maintenance regimen: To maintain, one treatment is performed every 6 months – to maintain skin hydration and glow – as well as to keep wrinkles at bay.

Treatment Options

  1. Mesotherapy: Multiple injections are spread across the face (or treated area) to place the skinboosters evenly to induce collagen and elastin production and to plump up the skin.
  2. Cannula: a blunt cannula is used to place the Skinboosters underneath skin with fewer entry points. This method is usually used to treat deep lines or to plump up acne scarring.
