Skin-Boosters – FAQ’s
“Skin-Boosters immerse the skin with hydration making it feel fresh and rejuvenated. Your skin deserves to look its best: Hydrated and nourished so it looks fresh, natural and radiant!.”
What happens during my Skin-Boosters treatment?
The treatment involves hydrating micro injections of Hyaluronic Acid, a soft gel like substance called hyaluronic acid. Water loving Hyaluronic Acid is found naturally in the body where it maintains hydration levels in the skin. As we age the quality of Hyaluronic Acid diminishes over time. With Skin Boosters the skin’s firmness, elasticity, radiance and natural hydration is improved.
How long do Skin-Boosters last?
The Hyaluronic Acid in Restylane Skin-Boosters continues to work for several months after treatment offering a subtle gradual change in skin quality and elasticity resulting in a noticeably invigorated look to your skin.
