What are Restylane Skinboosters™?
As the name implies, Restylane Skinboosters™, otherwise known as Restylane Vital and Restylane Vital Light is a system of microinjection in the skin designed to create hydration, increases elasticity and firmness and smoothening of the surface of the skin.
What are the indications?
SkinBooster injections are designed to enhance the surface of the skin by increasing the hyaluronic acid in the area injected. The result is a smoother, more radiant looking skin. In Europe, this skin hydrating renewal injection system is used on multiple body areas including the face, chest, neck, arms and legs. In Canada, this product is approved for the face, the neck and the back of the hands to enhance the crepiness of the skin’s surface.
What is the protocol?
The protocol consists of a series of treatments, usually 3 sessions, a month apart.
It consists of a series of micro punctures in the mid dermis. It is not filler, and is not designed as a volumizing product.
A follow up session or Booster session is usually required in 6 -9 months.
Is there down time?
Since this is a series of micro punctures, you can expect some bruising after the treatments.
There could be some swelling at the injections points. These usually resolve within a week.
The result is a “boost”of the skin’s glow, hydration, and overall integrity of the skin’s surface.
