I recently finished a Restylane Skin Boosters treatment with Doctor Imogen Bexfield at White Swan Aesthetics and I wanted to share my experience and review the treatment for you.
Restylane Skin Boosters are micro injections used as a technique to inject Hyaluronic Acid into the skin in order to make your skin more even and plumper. Hyaluronic Acid is known to even and smooth fine lines improving skins elasticity achieving an overall glowy skin and a younger appearance. I’m a fan of Hyaluronic Acid since its the only substance that our bodies recognise as our own and it draws water into the injectable area making it plumper. I try to buy products containing Hyaluronic Acid too as it really does wonders for the skin, especially if anti ageing is your concern.
Skin Boosters technique despite it being based on the same substance is different to the filler as the Hylornic Acid injected as a part of Skin Boosters treatment disperses within the injected area. Fillers are known for making the area increase in size when Skin Boosters only improve vitality and elasticity of the treated area.
Skin Boosters consisted of 3 treatments performed over 3 consequent months with 3-4 weeks apart. The treatment is approximately 10 minutes long however, you will need more time to allow for the numbing cream to be applied. Numbing cream is usually held on the skin for 20-30 minutes or so and it helps decrease the pain caused by injections. Although the treatment is not too painful but quite uncomfortable due to injections. Following the treatment small bumps, minor redness and bruising can be seen in the injected areas followed by redness, however, this only lasts for a few days. Its advisable not to wear any makeup or heavy skin care products at least 24 hours following the treatment.
I saw a minor improvement in my skins texture and an over a glow even after the first treatment. The second treatment improved the elasticity and hydration and the last treatment really improved the quality of my skin. It’s hard to notice yourself but I have decreased the amount of makeup I wear every day and only use concealer on most days. I have also been getting a few compliments on how glowy my skin looks.
Restylane Skin Boosters moisturize from within, it also prompts a collagen production. Its the most similar to mesotherapy and vampire facials in terms of the technique.
My skin has an overall radiance and the best of all the substance will last for up to 2 years, however, I may be required to do a maintenance treatment every 6-9 months to keep it lasting even longer.
If anti ageing and dull skin is your concern, I can definitely recommend skin boosters as they are non-invasive and long-lasting.
