1. What is skinbooster treatment?
Skin booster treatment involves microinjections of hyaluronic acid to maintain hydration in the skin. It helps nourish your skin and improve its elasticity and firmness. At our cosmetic dermatology center, Dr. Yassine uses skinboosters to treat different areas, including the face, neck, decolletage, and hands.
2. What are the benefits of skin boosters?
The benefits of skin boosters include:
- Improving skin texture
- Maintaining hydration around the mouth, lower cheek, and chin
- Treating smokers’ lines
- Stimulating the fibroblasts to produce more hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin
To note that when we combine skinboosters with microneedling, more collagen and elastin will be produced, and the results will be more impressive!
3. What are the possible side effects of skinboosters?
Some patients may experience some side effects, such as swelling, slight redness, and bruising. They usually go away shortly after the procedure.
4. How many sessions of skinboosters do I need?
For best results, you need three sessions sparred 4-6 weeks apart. Moreover, Dr. Yassine recommends maintenance treatment once every six months.
5. What are the different steps of Skin Boosters treatment?
- Before the treatment
Dr. Yassine will help you identify whether or not the treatment is suitable for you. If so, a numbing cream will be applied so that you almost feel no pain.
- During the treatment
At our cosmetic clinic in Beirut, Lebanon, Dr. Yassine uses FDA-approved skin boosters (Restylane “Vital Light”; Juvederm “Volite”). They are injected in small amounts using a very fine needle. Skin boosters, and as their name implies, boost the production of collagen and elastin, which will result in improving the skin’s texture. The whole procedure takes about 15 minutes!
- After the treatment
Restylane and Juvederm are biodegradable products used in this procedure, which means that they will be naturally broken down over time. Many patients can go back to their daily activities right after the treatment. The results will be noticed within two weeks and will last from 9 months to 1 year.
