Ever wondered why so many Korean ladies have such dewy, supple and glowing complexions? Although the cool weather and good genetics contribute to their beautiful skin, many of them rely heavily on Restylane Skinboosters treatment to achieve their flawless complexion. Skinboosters, or commonly known as “collagen injection” or “水光针”, is probably the most popular skin rejuvenation treatment in Japan and Korean now.
What is Restylane Skinboosters Treatment And What Does It Do?
Restylane Skinboosters uses a specialised hyaluronic acid (stabilised HA) filler to rejuvenate the skin. Hyaluronic Acid is a substance is found naturally in the body to maintain hydration in the skin. When injected into the skin, Skinboosters filler, a soft, gel-like material, absorbs water to provide deep hydration to the treated area, plumping and firming the skin so that fine lines and wrinkles will be less visible. The outcome of the treatment – improved firmness and elasticity to give you smoother and more radiant skin.
How Is The Treatment Administered?
Using an injector device that looks like a gun, Restylane Skinboosters is introduced into the area just below the surface of the skin. The nozzle of the gun is attached to a special disposable needle. When the doctor determines the area to be treated, he will place the nozzle on the skin. A vacuum will be created on the treated area which will then suck the skin before 5 micro-needles will be introduced to deliver the filler under the skin. This will be repeated on the areas that are to be treated.
Depending on your skin condition, your doctor may also choose to administer the Skinboosters via hand rather than an injector gun. Using hand administered injections gives more sin lifting, but but result in slightly more discomfort, swelling and bruising.
Some Clinics Offer “Skin Boosters” or “Hydra Boosters” But Not Restylane Skinboosters. Any Difference?
Restylane is the world’s first stabilised non-animal HA filler. Since the first product that was conceived in late 1980s, Restylane continued to innovate and created a range of products to suit all skin types. Restylane Skinboosters was first created in 2004 to improve skin quality. Further research and improvements were made along the way and Restylane Skinboosters was officially launched in 2012. To date, more than 20 million Restylane treatments have been done worldwide.
Restylane Skinboosters are clinically proven to provide visible improvements to various skin conditions by improving the elasticity, luminosity, and reducing appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Since then, there have been many companies that tried to recreate the fillers. Even though the price of these treatments could be a fraction of the original Restylane Skinboosters, results from the treatment differ and effects do not last as long. Some of the fillers are not crossed linked – resulting in a duration of action of only a few days.
Is Restylane Skinboosters Safe?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance found in your body. HA is usually found in soft connective tissue, cartilage, skin tissue, and joint fluids. Furthermore, these HA fillers are temporary and they will dissolve about one year after the treatment.
How Long Can The Effects of Restylane Skinboosters Last?
Skinboosters are recommended to be administered monthly for 3 sessions, then repeated half yearly for maintanence. Truth be told, we find that even if you stop the treatment, your skin has already reaped the benefits of this age reversing treatment, and will always be more youthful than if you haven’t have the procedure done. Having the procedure done half yearly essentially stops the aging process, so that your skin remains youthful, even in years to come.
