Rejuvenation of the skin, face, backs of hands, decolettage and neck
It is of course possible to rejuvenate the face through non-surgical procedures using botox or dermal fillers, but the problem has always been that the hands, decolletage and neck continued to age giving the game away! Now with the latest invention of the Restylane Vital Skinboosters we can very effectively rejuvenate the backs of hands, decolettage and neck, turning the clock back and giving the skin in those areas an amazing texture and quality of the years gone bye.
Indeed, even though botox effectively rubs out wrinkles, and dermal fillers fill lost volume in the face, Dr Milojevic has always said that the "third musketeer" of facial rejuvenation was needed. What he calls "something for the skin iteslf". Restylane Vital Skinboosters, is a procedure not unlike mesotherapy, treating the skin itself and rejuvenating it by giving it a youthful appearance and texture.
What can Skinboosters be used to treat?
- Fine wrinkles on the cheeks and face
- Acne scarring
- Skin texture quality and turgidity
- Skin shine and elasticity
- Backs of hands - volume and hiding of veins
- Skinfolds armpits
- Elbow skin
- Skin around knee
It is one of the most recent additions to the Galderma range and was created with their unique NASHA technology. It is not strictly a filler, but it simply restores the hyaluronic acid which the nature has taken away, and as has been shown in a pioneering medical study, Restylane products induce new collagen production in the process. Quite simply Restylane Vital moisturises from within, and provides long lasting hydration to the areas treated, which expensive creams can never achieve.
Hyaluronic acid and its water binding capacity decline with age and can account for some of the most striking features of the aging skin including: wrinkles, roughness, less turgidity, loss of elasticity and protruding veins. Excessive sun exposure contributes to skin aging through UVA radiation directly reducing natural hyaluronic acid, resulting in dehydration. Further to this the passage of time and photoageing impair the production of elastin and collagen further contributing to the continuing aging of the skin.
The Restylane Vital treatments replace the lost hyaluronic acid and collagen, hydrate from within, and therefore plump up and rejuvenate the aging hands, decolettage and face.
Restylane Vital is injected via a very small needle with very small deposits being placed deep in the skin throughout the area being treated. For optimal results, an initial course of 3 treatments at 4 week intervals is recommended. After that a 6 monthly maintenance treatment may be required, although in time these maintenance treatments become more and more infrequent.
The treatment takes about 15-30 minutes, and is not very painful at all. Depending on the patient’s pain threshold we can numb the skin with a topical cream.
Some injection related side-effects can occur including redness, tenderness, swelling and bruising and none of these are ever very serious and they will resolve in a matter of days. Because we are treating quite exposed areas such as your hands, careful planning of the social calendar for a day or two after the procedure is necessary.
After every procedure, we will give you aftercare advice.
