Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
1. What is Restylane® Skinboosters™?
Restylane® Skinboosters™ is an injectable treatment that is created using the NASHA (Non-Animal Stabilised Hyaluronic Acid) technology which retains the natural properties of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) by preserving the way the molecules naturally connect with each other so that it can be combined for long periods in the body. The product uses smaller gel particles to deliver hydration and moisture deep inside the skin, with a minimal lifting effect.
HA is a sugar molecule that is already found in the body, and it is a natural component of the skin which helps maintain its hydration and firmness. The injectable gel comes with a stabilized form of HA. When administered into the skin, the Restylane® Skinboosters™ deliver significant enhancement to skin quality, which is longer than the non-stabilized HA used by other brands. It acts as a dermal reservoir that hydrates the skin.
2. What is the process like?
Restylane® Skinboosters™ involves a progressive treatment. In the initial treatment protocol, injections are typically administered over the course of 3 sessions, spaced 4 weeks apart. To maintain the results, you will need regular maintenance sessions approximately every 6-9 months.
3. What areas can it treat?
- Crow’s feet
- Smile lines
- Peri-oral lines
4. Why is maintaining the skin’s hydrobalance so important?
Aging and lifestyle factors, like smoking and unprotected sun exposure, causes a person to lose the hyaluronic acid found in the skin. This means the skin loses its capacity to bind and retain water. This makes the skin less elastic, dull, and rough. By restoring skin hydration you can make it look and feel youthful and rejuvenated.
5. Are Restylane® Skinboosters™ a skin care product?
To put it more accurately, it is a medical device. It is an injectable gel that consists of hyaluronic acid molecules that are not derived from animals. It mimics the skin’s naturally occurring hyaluronic acid and restores hydration. This also makes the skin look plump, smooth and elastic.
6. Is it effective?
The efficacy and safety of this product is proven on the basis of current data. Several research papers show that this treatment improves skin hydration (1), increases elasticity (2), and smoothens the skin’s surface (3).
7. Can I use it with other aesthetic treatments?
Restylane® Skinboosters™ can be used as a stand-alone treatment. However, it can also be used in combination with other aesthetic treatments. You may discuss this with Dr. Soosay, who will guide you towards the best products and treatments that can help you achieve radiant and youthful-looking skin.
8. How long is the downtime?
The downtime for this treatment is generally a day or two at the most. Patient will experience some swelling and redness after the treatment.
