What exactly is this treatment?
Restylane® Skinboosters™ help to restore and maintain your skin’s natural moisture levels and can help to improve the appearance of fine lines.
Our skin naturally contains Hyaluronic Acid, a sugar that can hold many times its own weight in water and that adds volume to the deep structure of the skin. As we age, the production of Hyaluronic Acid reduces. The production of collagen and elastin – the main structural proteins in skin tissue that give it shape and allow it to ‘bounce back’ after it has been stretched or contracted – also starts to reduce as we age, and the combination of all of these factors can contribute to overall skin dryness and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, which all become more noticeable as we get older. Restylane® Skinboosters™ work to revitalise and refresh the skin by depositing micro-droplets of Hyaluronic Acid in the areas where skin is lacking in volume or has been visibly affected by a lack of hydration. This injectable cosmetic procedure helps to provide intensive, long-lasting and deep hydration for the skin, increasing smoothness and elasticity and helping to improve the appearance of visible imperfections such as acne scarring. It is an effective treatment not just for the face, but also on the neck, hands and décolletage.
Why should I have this treatment?
If your skin is dry, dull and lacking in volume, Restylane® Skinboosters™ could be an appropriate non-surgical aesthetic treatment for you to consider.
How do I know if this treatment is safe and right for me?
At Appearance Based Medicine Ltd., Clare McLoughlin RGN INP will only carry out any non-surgical aesthetic procedure (including the administration of Restylane® Skinboosters™) following a detailed one-to-one consultation with a patient, enabling her to accurately assess whether a treatment is appropriate given a patient’s unique medical history, skin condition and expectations.
During your consultation, you will be given comprehensive information about the procedure, potential side effects, and any pre- and post-treatment advice. You will also be given the time to decide whether or not, given the information you have received, you would like to proceed with any recommended procedure.
As with any injectable aesthetic treatment, there is a small risk of a patient experiencing side effects post-treatment with Restylane® Skinboosters™. Many patients experience minor bleeding at the injection site, often followed by temporary and minor swelling, bruising, redness and soreness of the treatment site. However, these symptoms are usually not serious and should resolve on their own. Clare McLoughlin RGN INP will ensure that you are given comprehensive advice and support post-treatment to ensure that your treatment is as safe and effective as possible.
How does this treatment work?
In the majority of cases, Clare McLoughlin RGN INP recommends an initial course of three treatments with Restylane® Skinboosters™ (each approximately 4 weeks apart) as part of an initial treatment plan, though this may vary from patient to patient depending on their unique skincare requirements. You will begin to see the visible effects of Restylane® Skinboosters™ after your initial course of treatments, though for longer-lasting results, follow up appointments every 4-6 months may be required.
