What happens when you don’t water a plant? Its leaves dry out and become crisp, while its natural green colour fades to brown. This is the importance of hydration. Without hydrating your skin, your skin will also be dry, dull, and lifeless. By nourishing the skin with hydration, we ensure that it looks its best.
But sometimes, drinking water isn’t enough to get glowing, bouncy, and radiant skin.
Restylane Skinboosters provides instant results for healthy-looking, radiant, hydrated, and youthful skin. This is a micro-injection treatment that hydrates the skin, replenishing moisture levels, to create a smoother surface, improve skin texture and tone, fill in fine lines, give your skin instant radiance and boost elasticity.
What Are Restylane Skinboosters?
Restylane Vital or Restylane Vital Light Skin Boosters are dermal fillers that aim to improve skin hydration, firmness, and luminosity in the face and hands.
The interesting feature of Skinboosters is that, unlike traditional dermal fillers, they are not injected under the skin.
Instead, Skinboosters are injected superficially into the skin at multiple points to hydrate and improve skin quality directly under the surface. These injections activate the fibroblasts, which kick-start collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid formation by your cells. This results in healthy, radiant, and plump skin. While drinking water hydrates your skin from the inside out, Skinboosters hydrate and restore your skin from the outside in.
Unlike conventional dermal fillers that reshape and contour, Restylane Skinboosters are active anti-aging agents that are injected to activate your skin’s natural dream team: collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid (HA). Why are these known as the dream team? Collagen, elastin, and HA, promote the skin’s natural moisture and elasticity. As we age, our levels of collagen, elastin, and HA diminish. Over time, this results in drier and less radiant skin, and the likelihood of muscle movements leaving behind fine lines and wrinkles. Restylane increases your body’s production of collagen, elastin, and HA, and increases your skin’s hydration and tone from the inside out.
Am I a Good Candidate for Restylane Skinboosters
We see clients of all ages and skin types looking to get the Restylane experience. Specifically, we highly recommend this treatment for those seeking to improve dry or dull skin, fine lines, thinning skin, and textural irregularities. After regular treatments, our clients report improved elasticity, sustained hydration, diminished skin texture, and a lit-from-within glow. A lot of clients find they feel more confident in their newfound radiant skin, without relying on makeup, and we love that for them. You can take your skin from dull to dazzling!
The Restylane Skinboosters Procedure
Restylane Skinboosters, like every single one of our specialty cosmetic medical procedures, are administered by our expert, professionally trained, and licensed nurse injectors.
Using a very small, fine needle, skin boosters are injected superficially into the skin. This procedure takes less than an hour (usually 20-40 minutes, depending on the extent of your treatment). It is quick, speedy, and virtually painless – a perfect lunchtime treatment.
Skinboosters can help refresh, restore and rejuvenate your facial skin, the skin on your jawline, neck, chest, and the back of your hands.
Where Can I Use Restylane Skinboosters?
Restylane Skinboosters are known for their versatility. You can treat the following areas when looking for hydration, radiance, and supple skin:
Fine lines around the mouth and lips, eyes and in the brow area
Residual scarring or other textured areas
Backs of hands
Thinning or crepiness of skin on the decolletage
Neck, chin, and jawline for jowling
Is it Painful?
Not at all. Restylane Skinboosters are a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure, which means that discomfort is at a minimum. Topical numbing cream is not necessary for the procedure, but we have it on hand for areas that may be more sensitive, or for patients who do prefer topical anesthetic. As far as injections go, we administer Restylane Skinboosters by using very fine needles, or cannulas, which are flexible and especially used for this purpose.
Our patients resume their day to day activities immediately after the procedure! Some patients might experience minor swelling or redness at the injection sites for one to two days post-treatment, but this will subside and can be improved using ice packs or makeup.
Following your initial treatment, your results can last as long as one year. However, the true magic of Skinboosters reveals itself over time – a series of treatments are required for this reason. We typically recommend three Skinboosters treatments to our clients for a start. These should be scheduled four to six weeks apart.
After that, maintenance treatments scheduled every six to eight months is recommended to prolong your results.
What Is the Difference Between Fillers and Skinboosters?
Unlike dermal fillers, a Skinboosters treatment is not intended to fill lines and wrinkles. It won’t reshape the facial contours. Instead, the purpose of Skinboosters is to hydrate the skin while promoting the formation of new and long-term collagen, elastin, as well as hyaluronic acid. Our clients instantly notice a more dewy and firmer appearance to the skin, as well as a radiant glow.
Our Top Tips to Ensure Your Best Skinboosters Treatment
With years of experience treating our clients from across the Greater Toronto Area, we at Therapeutic Aesthetics know our skin treatments. With expert medical and aesthetic experience, we have collected some key tips and tricks for you to have the smoothest, best Skinboosters procedure possible.
Drink plenty of water! As important as it is to maintain your hydration with Skinboosters, it is also equally important to drink water so that your body continues to stay hydrated. Drinking water will give you optimal hydration.
For seven to ten days before your treatment, you should avoid:
Anti-inflammatory medications such as Advil and Motrin, blood thinners such as Aspirin, as well as blood-thinning supplements such as Vitamin E, garlic, and Ginseng.
Skinboosters is a safe treatment that can be combined with many of our other offerings. By taking advantage of doing multiple procedures at once, you can treat your skin to even more wondrous results.
While any time is an excellent time to give your skin a boost of hydration, we strongly recommend that you undergo your Skinboosters treatment during the winter months, when skin tends to be affected by the aridity of the cold weather.
Bonus: treatments in the wintertime help your skin look party-ready for the holidays!
