Skin rejuvenation treatments with Restylane hyaluronic acid Skin Booster
The fashion for ‘nude on nude’ make-up is gaining ground, as is the natural or even totally nude skin. However, skin quality must approach perfection. To intensively hydrate the skin, Hyaluronic SKINBOOSTERS (RESTYLANE) offers the solution par excellence. This is a stabilised hyaluronic acid injected into the middle dermis (classic mesotherapy products are injected at a more superficial, higher level).
Dehydrated skin becomes less plump, less elastic and gradually, wrinkles and lines appear. They first appear as dynamic, movement lines, but then become permanent, and the skin becomes dull.
The production of free radicals in the skin (from UV exposure, pollution, chemical aggressors and stress) worsens the degradation of hyaluronic acid.
Thus, we have to give hyaluronic acid back to the skin, either on the surface in cream form, or in depth through injections.
The aim is to bring about cutaneous densification, without changing the traits or the volume of the face.
Skinboosters are fine, very lightly reticulated particles of hyaluronic acid : this reticulation is the difference to other lightly or non-reticulated products on the market (non-reticulated products will be quickly destroyed by the body). The reticulation of Restylane skinboosters gives it a long-life.
Once injected, it integrates with the tissues, with molecules of hyaluronic acid acting like endogenous water, thus hydrating the skin.
The skin’s structure is strengthened, as well as its elasticity, its firmness and its glow, whilst there is deep hydration.
The injection can be carried out by multi-puncture needle, or with a micro-needle with 1 or 2 entry points on each side of the face through which the Skinbooster fans out.
2 types of Skinboosters are available, Restylane Vital for mature skin and Restylane Vital Light for younger skins.
It can treat the face, neck, the décolletage and the body (knees, arms, thighs).
Injection procedure/ protocol
The procedure depends on the type of skin:
– Younger skin: one or two syringes are administered to be renewed 1 month later
– Mature or very sun-damaged skin: first injection of two syringes, then one to two syringes 30 days later. Ideally, this should be followed by an upkeep session once or twice per year.
