LOOKING TO ACHIEVE HYDRATED AND RADIANT SKIN WITHOUT THE EFFECTS OF TRADITIONAL DERMAL FILLERS?

WHAT ARE SKINBOOSTERS?

Skin Boosters such as Restylane Vital or Restylane Vital Light are a dermal filler which improves skin hydration, firmness and luminosity, through micro-injections of a very thin Hyaluronic Acid filler into the skin. It naturally integrates into the skin to noticeably improve skin smoothness, elasticity and appearance in the face, upper neck and back of the hands. Clinical studies show that results may last up to 6 months.

Unlike traditional dermal fillers, they are not injected beneath the skin to volumize or shape the face.  Instead, they are very fine dermal fillers that are injected into the skin to hydrate and improve skin quality. During the treatment, the multiple injections activate the fibroblasts promoting new collagen and elastin formation. The result is healthy-looking, glowing and plump skin.

Over a series of treatments, it gradually refreshes the look of your skin.

WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE LIKE?

Skinboosters are injected using a very small needle. The entire procedure takes anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes. No topical numbing cream is necessary

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?

Initially, 3 treatments are required. They should be scheduled 4-6 weeks apart. Maintenance treatments are recommended every 6-8 months. Take care of your skin by hydrating from the inside out with Skinboosters, especially in the winter to combat dryness.

IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?

Injection related side effects, such as temporary swelling, bruising and pin-pricks marks can occur but this subsides quickly. Bumpiness on the skin can occur however these are temporary and resolve quickly with some gentle massage. Avoid alcohol, anti-inflammatories such as Advil, Motrin and Naprosyn, and any supplements which can thin the blood (including Vitamin E, garlic, ginseng) for 7-10 days before treatment to minimize your downtime. Drink plenty of water the day before and day of treatment to further enhance your results

WHAT AREAS CAN I TREAT?

Skinboosters can help refresh the skin in the face, jawline, neck, chest and back of the hands

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FILLERS AND SKINBOOSTERS?

A Skinboosters treatment is not intended to fill lines and wrinkles. Instead, it is to hydrate the skin and promote formation of new collagen and elastin in the long term. Patients notice a more dewy and firmer appearance to the skin and more of a ‘glow’ as a result.

The Skinboosters treatment works exceptionally well at enhancing the results of other treatments and can be added to most services at Victoria Park.

HOW LONG DOES A TREATMENT LAST?

Following the initial treatment, the long-lasting Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in Skinboosters will provide hydration and can continue to last for 6-12 months to give your skin a wonderful glow. Maintenance is always recommended with HA products for continued benefits and improving results.
