Restylane Skinboosters: What is it?
Restylane SkinboostersTM is a filler treatment which improves skin hydration, firmness and luminosity, through micro-injections of a very soft hyaluronic acid filler into the skin (Restylane Vital or Vital Light).
How Does It Work? How is Skinboosters Different From Other Fillers?
Fillers typically work by filling up volume deficiencies and lifting the skin. For example, the harder fillers in the Restylane family are great for sculpting the chin. Skinboosters, on the other hand, are extremely soft. Instead of exerting mechanical effects, they work via its biochemical properties.
The family of Restylane fillers differ in thickness and lifting capacity. Harder fillers such as Perlane are great for lifting the cheeks. Skinboosters are softer, and serve to hydrate and rejunevate the skin.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar molecule in our skin. It gives our skin the plumpness and hydration associated with youthful, healthy skin. However, over time, our skin loses collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, and it becomes drier, rougher and less elastic.
Restylane Skinboosters reverse the skin aging process by reintroducing hyaluronic acid into the skin. Once injected, the water-loving hyaluronic acid molecules start to absorb water up to 200 times its weight and swell, bringing about profound hydration to the skin from inside out. With dramatically improved hydration, the skin looks plumper, brighter, and more youthful.
At the same time, the Restylane Vital start to stimulate collagen production once injected, giving long term, anti-aging effects.
What are the Benefits?
Restylane Skinboosters are excellent for improving skin texture and tone. Unknown to most, Skinboosters also improve acne scars by plumping them up. The benefits of the treatment include:
- Smoother skin
- Improvement in fine lines and wrinkles
- Firmer skin
- Brighter, more luminous skin
- Better skin hydration
- Improvement in acne scars
Is it REALLY That Great a Treatment?
Everyone should and can have the Skinboosters treatment, because everyone and anyone can benefit greatly from it. There are very few treatments, if any at all, which can give the same dramatic improvement in skin texture and colour. For this reason, Restylane Skinboosters has earned its place in the aesthetics hall of fame, and is highly sought after by men and women, especially celebrities.
Which Areas can Be Treated?
Restylane Skinboosters is most often performed on the face and neck, but other areas on the body such as the décolletage can also be treated. The treatment also works extremely well to rejuvenate the hands.
Dermapen 3™ uses multiple needles to vertically pierce the skin with patent-pending AOVN™ (Advanced Occilating Vertical Needle) technology. When moved across the skin, Dermapen 3™ allows for millions of fine channels to be created in the skin. These channels can carry up to 80% more topical nutrients, allowing for transdermal delivery of these nutrients deeper into the skin to feed cells found in the dermis and basal layer of the epidermis.
Dermapen 3™ systematically creates micro-punctures in the skin and the body responds in a natural way by launching processes to repair the physical damage. The result is an increased production of normal woven collagen, similar to fractional laser treatments, but without the side effects and downtime.
Dermapen™ Treatments have also been found to be more effective and beneficial than most microdermabrasion and chemical peels. When compared to traditional dermal rollers, Dermapen 3™ causes less epidermal (skin) damage, which reduces pain and discomfort, and makes Dermapen 3™ a safer, more comfortable, and more effective micro-needling treatment.
Dermapen 3™’s disposable cartridges eliminate risk of cross-contamination, whilst the adjustable needle depth allows for a treatment that is fully tailored to your individual needs. Dermapen 3™ is so advanced, it is even suitable and safe to use in delicate and hard to reach areas such as those around the eyes and lips and on the nose.

LED Photo Therapy
DermaFix LED Masque is a device that emits light of various wavelengths in order to stimulate or activate different responses within the skin. As the light varies in wavelength, so does the colour of the light emitted change accordingly to the specific wavelength used. Typical colours used may include green, red and blue.
The combination of LED light technology alongside in-clinic protocols, helps to focus on specific concerns. The LED Masque offers skin rejuvenation and increases fibroblast activity. This increase in fibroblast activity helps to improve collagen production by 12% and elastin production by 40% within 30 days of treatment application.
DermaFix LED Masque will also provide more effective results with repeated use alongside treatment protocols. An increase in collagen production and the improvement of the body’s natural rejuvenation process is noted, this results in a youthful more radiant complexion. This masque offers an immediate glow without any downtime. Excellent add-on to your skin treatment for deeper stimulation & longer lasting results.
Skin peels refresh, brighten, lighten, stimulate collagen production and soften fine lines. They can also assist with congestion, break-outs, and uneven textured skin.
