Galderma Restylane Skinbooster
Restylane Skinboosters works from the inside out to replenish the body’s natural reserves of HA. The treatment involves hydrating microinjections of the soft, gel-like substance hyaluronic acid (HA) into the skin, which are administered by a qualified aesthetic therapist.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a waterloving substance that occurs naturally in everyone’s body. It has many functions, one of which is maintaining hydration levels in the skin. To do this, it attracts and binds water molecules in the skin, thus giving it its firmness, elasticity and radiance. However, as we age, our HA quality diminishes. This can result in dull, dry skin.
This means that Restylane Skinboosters work to improve the skin’s quality by boosting hydration levels deep within the skin, for results that can be seen on the skin’s surface everyday — effectively increasing overall smoothness, elasticity, firmness, and radiance.
