You know us—happy and willing to try just about anything when it comes to health and beauty. So, when Restylane asked us to give their Skinboosters a whirl, we were game.
Our experience unfolded at the lovely offices of Carruthers & Humphrey in Vancouver (seriously, you can't beat the view from this clinic's windows). Curious as to where Restylane Skinboosters fit in within the realm of modern-day injectibles, we learned that, no matter skin type, age, gender or current treatment plan, this dermal filler can help refresh your look. Designed with a patented technology, Restylane Skinboosters uses a unique form of hyaluronic acid that naturally integrates into the skin to noticeably improve skin smoothness, elasticity and appearance in the face (lower cheek/jawline), upper neck and back of the hands, with clinical studies showing results may last up to six months.
Also unique is how Restylane Skinboosters works in the skin, gradually refreshes the look of skin over a series of treatments (for us, that means two more treatments in the coming months, and then a maintenance plan to follow).
Truth be told, our initial procedure involved quite a few pricks in our face and neck (the latter to help minimize our "necklace lines"). There was no bleeding but, when we left, several bruises had already started to bloom. Not shy, we went about our day as normal (including a yoga class and light facial); in the coming week or so, the bruises darkened, then lightened, then totally disappeared. A small price to pay, in our opinion, for an actual, noticeable difference: our skin started to glow and felt softer, fresher, fuller and definitely moree youthful, in the most subtle way.
Several days after treatment, we received the biggest reward of all, in the form of the ultimate compliment: "You look so happy, so at peace!" Nothing had changed in our life or daily routine except for Restylane Skinboosters. We can't wait to see what results our next sessions yield! —Vita Daily
