As we age the quality of the skin changes, collagen and elastin fibres degrade and the distribution and function of the body’s own hyaluronic acid is less efficient. This results in rougher, drier skin with less elasticity. The aging process plays an important role in the appearance of the skin but lifestyle factors, such as exposure to the sun, smoking and drinking also have detrimental effects. The benefits of Restylane Vital are that it improves skin elasticity by drawing water to it, so plumping the skin, giving a more youthful and hydrated look.

Restylane Skinboosters – Restylane Vital®:

The natural hydrating properties of Restylane Vital® Skinbooster make it the obvious choice for all those skin areas that take on a rough dehydrated or crêpey appearance. These areas typically include the face, neck, and décolletage as well as the backs of hands. It plumps up the skin in a way that creams and other moisturisers simply cannot do. Restylane Vital® moisturises skin from deep within and is actually now proven by clinical studies to work preventatively to stop lines forming. Its sister product Restylane Vital® Light, recently launched the latter part of last year, is excellent for more sensitive skin. Restylane Vital provides deep dermal hydration, moisturising from within to improve skin tone and health. It diminishes the fine crêpey lines caused by sun damage and the natural ageing process and smoothes the skin to give a plump and hydrated look.

Some of the most difficult to treat areas and yet some of the most ageing parts of the body are the backs of the hands and the chest and of course the face. Frequently neglected when putting on sun screen, these areas tend to get sun damaged and lose volume – often giving away a person’s age. Restylane Vital is a product designed to intensively moisturise from within. It helps to rejuvenate the skin by improving skin elasticity and tone making the skin look hydrated and feel smooth to the touch. It is a hyaluronic acid, which is based upon a naturally occurring substance in the body and makes an ideal treatment for fine lines and wrinkles.

What Is Restylane Vital?

Restylane Vital® is a natural beauty treatment that gently replenishes our own hyaluronic acid, reversing the ‘tell-tale’ signs of ageing. It is used to treat larger areas of skin on the face, neck, front of upper chest and back of hands.

What will your experience with Restylane Vital be like?

The Restylane Vital® is a light form of hyaluronic acid. It is very water loving so when it is placed beneath the skin it will effectively moisturise the skin from within. The treatment requires a number of injections to place the product under the skin. The area is numbed before injections using local anaesthetic cream so the procedure is quite comfortable. There is no downtime after the treatment and it should last 9 – 12 months. The gel is injected evenly throughout the area to be treated using a fine needle. Since there is no need for pre-testing, treatment typically takes just 15-30 minutes. The discomfort is minimal though an anaesthetic cream can be massaged into the area.

Side Effects

Hyaluronic acid is not extracted from animals. There is no risk of allergic reactions and it is used instantly without pre-testing. Short-term common injection-related reactions may occur: redness, pain, itching and tenderness. Bruising may last for 2-3 days. Please report any side effects immediately.

The Future

Restylane Vital® releases hyaluronic acid gradually over a period of time, with benefits generally lasting several months. There are no restrictions on how often you can receive treatment. We advise you to have the first three treatments at 4 weeks interval. Thereafter the procedure may be repeated as often as you wish, ensuring you look and feel great.

Restylane Skinboosters – Restylane Vital Light®:

This Restylane Skinbooster has been designed for use on more delicate skin, particularly around the eyes, lips, neck and décolletage and can also be used to improve overall skin condition and texture. For the first time, I would recommend the use of this product as a preventative treatment for skin that it still in good condition, and is often used in my younger patients.
