FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How is Restylane Skinboosters administered?
Your healthcare practitioner will disinfect the area that will be treated. Tiny droplets of hyaluronic acid will then be injected just below the skin surface through a fine needle to rehydrate your skin. Lidocaine, a local anesthetic, will take away most of the discomfort that you may experience during the treatment.
How long does a treatment with Restylane Skinboosters take?
Depending on the area, a treatment takes approximately 15-45 minutes. To achieve optimal results, a treatment program usually starts with 3 treatment sessions, 2-4 weeks apart. Thereafter, maintenance treatments are typically recommended every 4-6 months.
Is the treatment painful?
Some people may experience mild discomfort. Most Restylane fillers contain an integrated local anesthetic, lidocaine, to provide you with a more comfortable treatment experience. You and your healthcare practitioner may decide whether additional pain relief is needed.
What happens after the treatment?
After treatment you will receive post-treatment guidelines from your healthcare practitioner. It is normal to experience some discomfort, such as redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising or tenderness at the treatment site. These side effects generally disappear within one week after injection. Make sure that you discuss potential treatment risks with your healthcare practitioner.
Do I need maintenance treatments?
It is recommended to have regular maintenance treatments after the initial 3 treatments to maintain a hydrated and radiant skin. Restylane Skinboosters provides impressive results that can last up to 12 months.1
What should I apply or avoid after the treatment?
• Avoid applying make-up to the skin immediately after treatment.
• Light cover up may be used to conceal any remaining redness after approximately 24 hours.
• A yellow-toned concealer may be used to hide signs of bruising, if any.
• In order to cover up any redness, a concealer with a slight green/yellow tone is recommended.
