Restylane Skin boosters work to improve the skin’s health and quality by boosting hydration levels deep within the skin, effectively increasing hydration, overall smoothness, elasticity, firmness, and radiance. This type of treatment is also known as “Hydrolifting” or “Hydrofilling”.

The Hyaluronic acid present in the Skin Boosters is known for its hydrating properties, which directly addresses the first cause of ageing.

The added hydration which is also responsible for the immediate plumping effect also stimulates the deeper layers of the skin, much like a mesotherapy treatment, resulting in the production of new collagen and elastin, addressing the second cause of ageing.

Why should one have Skin Booster Treatments?

To understand the treatment and why it is so important, you have to grasp the causes of ageing and wrinkling which start with two main areas of decline, namely:

  1. Dehydration of the skin.
  2. The slowing down of metabolic processes that in turn slows down the production of collagen in the skin, resulting in sagging and wrinkling.
