Over time, the quality of your skin changes – collagen and elastic fibers disintegrate, and the spread and function of the body’s own hyaluronic acid change as well, making your skin drier, rougher and less elastic.
Applying the long-lasting hydration capabilities that NASHATM technology delivers, Restylane presents a unique approach that smoothens skin and enhances radiance from within. Restylane Skinboosters improve the surface and bring luminosity to skin by enhancing hydration.
Restylane Skinboosters can be used to improve the general skin quality of your face and also to improve exposed and sensitive areas such as your neck, décolletage and hands, as well as areas with acne-scarred skin.
Each treatment involves a series of hydrating microinjections of long-lasting hyaluronic acid, also called stabilised HA. While hyaluronic acid is a water-loving substance found naturally in the body, stabilised HA is a soft, gel-like substance that absorbs water and brings deep skin hydration to the treated areas, lending improved firmness, elasticity and smoothness.
A typical treatment program with Restylane Skinboosters is made up of three initial treatment sessions with 2 to 4 weeks apart.
The initial 3-treatment program is done once and after that one treatment about every 6 months is recommended.

What to expect
Restylane Skinboosters can greatly improve the skin of your face, hands, neck and décolletage. Your skin will become smoother, more radiant, and more elastic. Injections are typically administered over the course of 2-3 treatment sessions, 2–4 weeks apart, to restore your skin’s elasticity and smoothness in a gradual way. Regular maintenance sessions (approximately every 6 months) can ensure lasting results.
