The office Christmas do is your big chance to show colleagues, and your boss, just how fabulous you can look! And wrinkles definitely aren't invited. This article looks at how far in advance you need to have your anti-wrinkle treatments to look great on the day of the party.
As we age, there are many changes in our skin. The obvious ones are wrinkles, fine lines and sagging, but there are also more fundamental changes in skin structure. This is caused by the gradual loss of the body’s natural collagen and elastin, which reduces the skin’s elasticity and youthful smoothness.
Restylane Skinboosters are formulated to provide intense skin hydration, giving a smoother, firmer and more radiant appearance.
Our patients can be confident that our Save Face accredited practitioners will help them achieve the aesthetic outcome they are looking for.
What are Restylane Skinboosters?
Skinboosters are delivered through injections of a specially formulated hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring ‘glycosaminoglycan’ within the skin, which has a remarkable capability to retain water.
Restylane Skinboosters are designed using NASHA™ technology, which means that they are very close in composition to natural hyaluronic acid.
A small quantity of lidocaine is included in Skinboosters to increase comfort during treatment.
How do Skinboosters work?
The unique formulation of Restylane Skinboosters ensures that they naturally integrate into the skin. This is accomplished by the water associated with the stabilised hyaluronic acid in the gel.
The effect is that the hydro-balance of the skin is restored, resulting in improved smoothness, elasticity and overall appearance of the skin.
The unique characteristics of Restylane Skinboosters ensure long-lasting results.
Whilst every patient’s needs are unique and your medical practitioner will recommend the most appropriate course of treatment for your desired results, a typical treatment plan might include:
- Initially: 3 treatments, 2-4 weeks apart
- Maintenance treatment: Every 4-6 months
What can Skinboosters be used to treat?
Skinboosters can be used on the lower face and jawline, upper neck, décolletage and on the back of the hands. They can be used to accomplish a number of benefits through their intensively hydrating action:
- Hydrate and nourish
- Smooth fine lines and wrinkles
- Firm sagging skin
- Improve the texture of ‘crepey’ skin
- Restore radiance
Results can be expected to last for up to 6 months.
Can Restylane Skinboosters be used with other treatments?
Skinboosters are perfectly suitable to be administered alongside botox, although they cannot be injected into the same area of the face.
