Ideal for treating the lower face, neck and the back of hands, this injectable moisturizer is quickly gaining popularity for its natural-looking results. 

“My skin looks so good!! I get compliments all the time!” I love hearing this type of feedback from my patients and it’s exactly why I only offer cosmetic injection treatments proven to be truly beneficial. Enter Restylane® Skinboosters™, restores the natural composition of your skin by increasing elasticity and improving texture gradually over a series of treatments.

Here’s why the cosmetic injection industry is moving a more natural direction and why Restylane® Skinboosters™ align perfectly with my approach to cosmetic injections.

What Are Skinboosters™?

Restylane® Skinboosters™ primarily use hyaluronic acid (HA) to improve skin hydration, elasticity, and texture. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the skin known for its ability to retain water and add volume. As we age ( or due to a harsh environment), our naturally occurring hyaluronic acid decreases and your skin may lose some of its elasticity and hydration.

Restylane® Skinboosters™ leverage the natural hydrating power of hyaluronic acid to rejuvenate the skin from within, rather than adding or altering volume.  Since natural hyaluronic acid in the body quickly forms and degrades (within 24-48 hours), the hyaluronic acid molecules in Restylane® Skinboosters™ are cross-linked so that they last longer—as in several months or up to a year! The degradation is delayed as the Restylane® Skinboosters™ forms small “reservoirs” of moisture beneath the skin surface for ongoing, long-lasting hydration and radiance. 


Who Are Skinboosters™ Suitable For?

Skinboosters™ are ideal for individuals who desire a natural approach to addressing signs of aging, such as fine lines, reduced elasticity and dryness. Skinboosters™ do not provide dramatic results, but a subtle refresh. If your goal is to address deep wrinkles and folds, another treatment, such as traditional dermal fillers, could be more beneficial for you.  Skinboosters™ can be used—and very  successfully—in combination with other cosmetic injection treatments.

Patients who are under the age of 18, pregnant, breastfeeding or with a known allergy to hyaluronic acid based products are not eligible for Skinboosters™  treatments. Always consult your family doctor prior to introducing a new treatment into your routine.

What Areas Can Be Treated with Skinboosters™?

Skinboosters™ treat dryness, fine lines and wrinkles of the face, neck, hands, and décolletage. This broad applicability makes them an excellent option for overall skin rejuvenation, allowing for general improvements in areas often affected by aging and environmental factors.

How Many Skinboosters™ Treatments Will I Need?

Results from Skinboosters™ injections are gradual and typically require a series of three treatments, two to four weeks apart. The procedure involves micro-injections of a gel-like hyaluronic acid solution directly into the skin. This method ensures deep hydration and stimulates collagen production, contributing to improved skin quality over time. A typical treatment plan may consist of this initial series of sessions followed by maintenance treatments every four to six months to sustain the results.

How Long Will the Effects of Skinboosters™ Last?

The effects of Skinboosters™ are not immediate; they develop gradually as the skin’s hydration and elasticity improve. Most patients notice significant benefits within a few weeks of their first treatment, with results lasting up to six months or more. Regular maintenance sessions are recommended to prolong your results.

What Results Can I Expect with Skinboosters™?

Restylane® Skinboosters™ results vary from individual to individual. For this patient, visible results were noticeable just one month after the first of three Restylane® Skinboosters™ treatments. We used one syringe of Skinboosters® Vital Light for her perioral lip lines (upper lip barcodes) and one syringe of Skinboosters® Vital for her lower cheeks and jaw. As you can see, this patient’s skin is already more radiant, and fine lines and wrinkles are diminished. 

For this patient, visible results were noticeable after just one syringe of Restylane® SKINBOOSTERS™ VITAL, administered using a cannula. She came to me for the vertical lip lines above her lip (also known as perioral rhytids or barcodes). 

What Downtime Is Associated with Skinboosters™?

Post-treatment, patients may experience mild swelling, redness, and bruising at the injection sites, which typically subside within 24 to 48 hours. There is minimal downtime associated with Skinboosters™, allowing individuals to return to their daily activities shortly after the procedure. I  always provide detailed aftercare instructions for my patients, which I highly advise to adhere to in detail in order to optimize healing.

How Much Do Skinboosters™ Cost?

The cost of Skinboosters™ will vary based on the number of syringes required per session and the recommended number of sessions. If you are interested in Skinboosters™, I offer complimentary consultations at Heather Polak Aesthetics Studio, Kelowna Laser Spa, Smooth Effects Kamloops, Studio 201 Skincare & Spa, Beautiful U Kamloops. After an initial consultation, I will be able to provide my recommended treatment plan for your individual needs and the approximate cost for said treatment. Skinboosters™ are comparable in price to traditional dermal fillers.
