Innovative aesthetic injectable clinically proven to improve skin smoothness, appearance and elasticity is now available in Canada
THORNHILL, ON, Jan. 16, 2018 /CNW/ - Building on its legacy over the last 20 years, the Restylane portfolio of safe and natural-looking aesthetic treatments announces the introduction of Restylane® Skinboosters™ Vital and Vital Light to help address the telltale signs of aging by improving the appearance, smoothness and elasticity of the skin.i,ii This is accomplished by the water associated with the stabilized hyaluronic acid in the gel. The unique characteristics of the gel help maintain the effect for a long period.i,ii Restylane Skinboosters provides a radiant, youthful-looking glow in areas of the lower cheek and jawline in the face, upper neckii and back of hands.i This new, non-surgical aesthetic treatment uses patented NASHA™ technology, a stabilized unique form of hyaluronic acid that naturally integrates into the skin.iii
With age, our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid, which is a natural sugar found in the body that binds to water, making skin smooth and radiant looking. The injectable treatment provides this natural-looking effect for a refreshed look – allowing patients to see and feel the difference.
"Your skin changes over time and signs of facial aging go beyond fine lines and wrinkles. Aging skin becomes drier, rougher and less elastic," said Dr. Lisa Kellett, dermatologist and founder of DLK on Avenue. "We now have a unique aesthetic option that can help restore skin appearance, smoothness and elasticity, seamlessly integrating into the skin to provide natural-looking results."
Restylane Skinboosters is suitable for a range of skin types, regardless of a person's age or gender. It can be used on its own or to complement an existing aesthetic treatment plan.
Canadian entrepreneur, philanthropist and star of the television series Real Housewives of Toronto, Joan Kelley Walker, was treated with Restylane Skinboosters.
"I have always been a confident woman and believe in taking care of myself. Restylane Skinboosters has given me a radiance and confidence that comes from knowing that what I'm doing is best for my skin," said Walker. "I feel great on the inside and on the outside, and my skin has a youthful looking, rejuvenated glow."
A typical treatment plan is comprised of two to three sessions, either two or four weeks apart, and can take as little as 10 minutes depending on the product used. Generally, a maintenance treatment is performed every four to six months, but results and patient preference may vary.i,ii
