What to Expect During a Restylane Skinboosters Treatment

Restylane Skinboosters are commonly used in treating the skin on different parts of the body, including the face, hands, décolletage, and neck. Restylane Skinboosters help to improve skin texture and to hydrate areas around the chin, mouth, and lower cheek. This treatment is also excellent for smokers’ lines and fine lines resulting from a fall in the skin’s moisture. 

When you are young, your body functions optimally. This is why you get to eat and drink anything without worrying much about weight gain or skin damage. However, as you get older, your skin is more elastic, rougher, and thinner because of insufficient production of collagen and lower water retention. Restylane Skinboosters injections introduce hyaluronic acid deep into the skin to help it remain hydrated and to slow skin damage and aging. 

If you opt for this treatment, you need to know how to prepare for it, what to expect during the procedure, and post-treatment care. Read more here. 

Preparing for Restylane Skinbooster Treatment

If you are curious about Restylane Skinboosters, you should visit a skin specialist to find out if you are an ideal candidate for this treatment, and what you need to do before going in for one. Restylane Skinboosters treatment is particularly beneficial to people with aged, dry, dull, and acne-prone skin. People with large pores will also benefit from this treatment. 

Since Restylane Skinboosters introduce hyaluronic acid to improve skin hydration, the skin doctor will determine if your skin problems result from poor moisture retention or something else. 

After the assessment, if the doctor agrees that Restylane Skinboosters is a suitable choice, you will discuss the terms and conditions before signing a consent form. Skin clinics and beauty centers have different terms, so you should ensure you understand them before accepting the treatment. 

Restylane Skinbooster Treatment Procedure 

This treatment takes a short time, usually half an hour. Small micro-injections are used to introduce small amounts of Restylane Skinboosters into the skin. Some doctors opt to use an injector gun to act as a suction before using the micro-needles. Some clients and doctors find the second option more comfortable. 

Other doctors prefer using the injections without the injector pump because it gives them greater control of the procedure. Whichever option the skin doctor finds convenient, the impact will be the same. The Restylane Skinboosters are biodegradable, so they will naturally be broken down by the body. Over time, the gap between treatments increases because the body has sufficient production of hyaluronic acid and collagen growth to sustain a youthful, healthy skin. 

Post-Treatment Care

After the treatment, the skin is likely to have minimal reactions, such as slight redness, itching, swelling, tenderness, and bruising. Should you have any of these reactions, you shouldn’t worry, they will disappear within a day or two. Remember to make an appointment for the next treatment.

If your skin is in dire need of moisture, your doctor may recommend another visit after two weeks, but in most cases, the follow-up treatment is after four weeks. You’ll start noticing a change in your skin’s appearance after a few days.
