What exactly is a Restylane Vital Skin Booster?
In simpler terms, a Restylane Skinbooster contains a powerful ingredient that can revitalize dull, ageing skin, improves skin hydration, firmness and luminosity, through micro-injections of a very soft hyaluronic acid filler into the skin surface.
“水光针” is a more popular name. Which is directly convert into supple bright skin.
Why do we need Skin Booster for our skin?
As we grow older, our skin produces less hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that gives skin volume and support, and helps retain moisture.
This causes many signs of early aging: dryness, dullness, wrinkles, fine lines, and folds around the mouth. Our pores can also look larger, and thinning skin around the eyes can emphasize dark circles.
Restylane can reverse this damage. It is made of a naturally-derived hyaluronic acid that has been processed and stabilized in a laboratory. Once it is injected into the skin, our body integrates it into our own skin tissue. It acts like our own natural HA and begins to attract water molecules (there are also studies that HA can help fight sun damage!).
Benefits of having a Restylane Skin Booster
Restylane Skinboosters are said to work extremely well for improving skin firmness, texture and luminosity. Lesser known to many, however, are the Skinboosters’ abilities to minimize acne scars by lifting and hydrating the skin.
Overall, benefits of Skinboosters include:
reduction of wrinkles and fine lines
tighter and firmer looking skin
more radiant, supple and healthy looking skin
skin hydration from within
reduction of acne scars
Various ways of administer Restylane Skin Boosters into the skin.
In a controlled environment, Restylane Skinboosters may be meticulously micro-injected into the skin using a needle. At other times, an injector gun (水光枪 in chinese) may also be used; the mode of introduction of the skinbooster into the skin is dependent on the doctor’s preference.
Some prefer using the machine for better perceived comfort for the patient. Others prefer the more traditional method of injecting with a needle and using their hands for better control. In this regard, there is no definite better way but more of a personal tendency of the doctor administering the treatment.
If it is via the injector gun mode, the skin is first ‘sucked’ on by the injector gun. 5 micro needles are then used to introduce the skinbooster into the skin. The mode of introducing skinboosters into the skin is said to be a more comfortable experience compared to the traditional method of using a needle.
While the use of an injector gun is a more updated approach, there are still doctors who swear by the more traditional way of using simply their bare hands and a needle.
This approach allows the doctor to exercise better control over the clinical outcome. Everyone’s aesthetics needs, comfort levels and preferences are varied. It is important to speak with your aesthetic doctor to achieve common grounds on the treatment approach.
The use of an injector gun is an easier approach for the doctor. One downside to the use of an injector gun, however, is the potential for bruising of the skin due the gun’s suction. The use of an injector gun tends to lead to greater wastage of the skinbooster as well. More skinbooster may have to be used to counteract the wastage and achieve the desired results.
How is the treatment for Restylane Skin Booster like?
How long can Its effect last?
Most doctors will recommend doing restylane skinbooster 3 times monthly in the initial stage. The intensity of this initial stage is to make sure that hyaluronic acid, the main component of the skinbooster, is adequately introduced into the skin. Only with sufficient hyaluronic acid in the skin can the body effectively replenish collagen levels that can slow and even reverse the aging process.
After the initial stage, treatments are recommended to be done every 6 months. The effects of each treatment from here on typically last around 6 months.
Before your Restylane Skin Booster treatment
2 days before and after undergoing skinbooster treatment, please do not consume alcohol, NSAIDs like aspirin and Synflex, and any medication or drug that can cause thinning of the blood. This includes food products containing Vitamin E, ginseng and garlic.
This is done so as to reduce bruising and swelling to a minimum.
Do also take note to avoid swimming, intense exercise, sauna and prolonged outdoor activities a day upon completion of treatment.
Additional knowledge that you need to know
Skinboosters may only be administered by a certified aesthetic doctor.
On average, 1ml to 2mls of restylane filler is needed to treat the entire face, an additional 3mls to treat the neck areas.
The amount required, however, may also be dependent on the individual (confirm with your doctor on this).
If cost is a concern for skinbooster treatment, consider doing it not for the entire face but on targeted areas where it is most required.
E.g. consider doing it only for the cheeks or forehead, or in gradual stages.
As with other aesthetic treatments, skinboosters bring about downtime to a certain extent, however minimal. Couple this with the high number of injections required in the initial stage, it is important to plan the time of your treatment with any major event that you may have. E.g. consider undergoing treatment at least one week before any major event or activity.
