What are Skinboosters and how does the procedure work?
Skinboosters are cosmetic injections, similar to the technique of mesotherapy, that consists of an unique form of hyaluronic acid using a patented NASHA technology to deliver the medical cocktail.
Restylane Skinboosters utilize a microinjection technique that involves injecting long lasting Hyaluronic Acid (also called stabilized HA) into the skin to make it plumper and more even. Stabilized HA is a soft, gel-like substance that absorbs water and brings deep skin hydration to the treated areas, improving skin’s firmness, elasticity, and smoothness. This process, also known as Hydrolifting or Hydrofilling, can also soften fine lines and smooth acne scarring.
Skinboosters act as a dermal reservoir, hydrating and moisturizing the skin from within, stimulating collagen growth, and providing long lasting hydration to the treatment area. This is done by administering small doses of hyaluronic acid into the skin, with a small fine needle.
Who is a good candidate?
Almost everyone is a good candidate for Restylane Skin Boosters. However, the ideal candidate for this treatment is someone who has mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles, and wants to see a brighter and smoother skin complexion. Restylane Skin Boosters also assists with improving skin elasticity and hydration. Restylane Skin Boosters can be used to lower cheek/jawline, back of hands, neck and around fine lines in the upper face such as the crows feet. Restylane Skin Boosters is great for use in all skin types.
When will I see results and when can I return to normal activities?
Restylane Skinboosters will help to improve the skin immediately and over the next 6 weeks with each treatment. It is recommended to complete a series of 3 treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart to see best results. Maintenance sessions can be done at the 6 month mark from the third treatment. Results can last up to 6 months. Individual results may vary.
You can return to normal activities immediately, however, it is advised to refrain for strenuous exercise and exposure to heat (tanning, sauna, steam room and sun) for 2-3 days post procedure.
The treatment plan will vary between patients, so it is ideal to consult with your Monaco Cosmetic Nurse to determine the best plan for you.
