The Most Popular Areas to Use Skinboosters for Restoring Hydrobalance

I am reading more and more about Skinboosters. What is this?

Rather than the conventional spot treatment approach, an exciting use for fillers developed when it was discovered that using small amounts of fillers dotted in many places provided deep hydration in the face, neck and hands. The effect is immediate; brows and cheeks are lifted, the jaw is defined, under-eye circles are lightened, marionette shadows are softened, and lips are hydrated and contoured. It’s been said it is like applying a hydrating mask deep into the dermis for a real life “Photoshop” effect.


How does it work?

Restylane Skinboosters (injectable hyaluronic acid) reintroduces small amounts of hyaluronic acid into numerous places in the skin. Hyaluronic acid molecules swell (they can absorb water up to 200 times their weight), bringing about significant hydration from the inside out. With more water and hydration, the skin plumps up while becoming dewy and supple. Additionally, the micro-droplets of filler stimulate the skin to produce more collagen, preventing further signs of aging.


What areas can be treated?

Skinboosters can be used on the entire face, neck and décolletage. It has proven especially useful in restoring volume in the back of the hands.


What happens during a treatment?

After anaesthesia cream is applied, semi-liquid micro droplets of Restylane are injected using an ultra-fine needle. The procedure takes about 30 to 60 minutes.


How many syringes will I need?

One syringe covers approximately half a face. A full face requires two or three syringes. Partial face treatments to treat an area of concern can also be performed.


How soon will I see results?

Results are immediate. Skinboosters injected into the superficial layer of the skin:

  • Restore skin hydrobalance for a luminous and dewy look
  • Improve elasticity and firmness
  • Tighten pores


How many treatments will I need?

Two to three monthly treatments are recommended for optimal and long-lasting results. Maintenance treatments are recommended every six to nine months.


Is there any downtime?

Expect needle marks immediately after the treatment. Bruising may sometimes occur, which takes a few days to fade. Expect full recovery within a week.

People with dry and dull skin, those who have difficulty keeping their skin hydrated and those with large pores are ideal candidates. Anyone who wishes to proactively keep their skin looking youthful and luminous should consider Skinboosters, as well.
