Intense skin hydration using Skin Booster | Cannes & Nice – Dr. Victor Médard de Chardon
A Skin Booster is injectable hyaluronic acid that improves the overall quality of the skin due to intense hydration and an increase in the firmness and elasticity of the skin. The most well-known Skin Booster is Restylane Vital®.
HOW DO SKIN BOOSTERS WORK?
Hyaluronic acid is one of the main building blocks of the skin. Ageing is accompanied by a decrease in the concentrations of hyaluronic acid, which is the cause of dehydration, a loss of elasticity of the skin and a loss of its radiance.
Skin Boosters are injectable hyaluronic acids which have a formula that is combined with free and low reticulated hyaluronic acid.
Skin Boosters help to revitalise and hydrate the skin deep down. Skin is then thicker, more elastic, smoother (wrinkles are smoothed out) and more hydrated. The skin is therefore healthier.
What areas can be targeted by revitalisation using a Skin Booster?
All areas of the face, neck and décolletage can be treated with Skin Boosters.
THE PRACTICALITIES OF SKIN BOOSTERS
Preparation of the skin using anaesthetising cream and Arnica
Duration of the session: 15 minutes per area
Injection via cannula or needle to the deepest layers of the dermis
2 injections 6 weeks apart lasting 6 to 12 months
Post-procedure effects: no bruising (usually), no time away from social activities
Massaging recommended to ensure an optimum homogenisation of the Skin Booster
WHAT ARE THE OTHER SKIN REVITALISATION PROCEDURES?
Skin Boosters can be combined with other skin revitalisation procedures such as a mesolift (link to mesotherapy page), chemical peels (link to chemical peels page) or fractionated CO2 laser therapy).
