As people age, their skin’s natural hydration and glow diminish, leading to the appearance of fine lines, dullness, and an uneven texture. Galderma‘s Restylane Skinboosters offer a revolutionary solution to combat these concerns and restore youthful radiance.

In this article, we will explore Restylane Skinboosters’ mechanism of action, various indications, and the benefits they bring to the skin, so our readers will be well-equipped to offer their patients the transformative benefits of these products.

What is So Special About Restylane Skinboosters?

Like the rest of the Restylane fillers, the Skinboosters series is based on a stabilized hyaluronic acid of non-animal origin obtained using NASHA patented technology. But unlike traditional dermal fillers that add volume to specific areas, these products work by improving overall skin quality and texture through deep hydration.

Restylane Skinboosters are used for prophylactic purposes at the first signs of skin withering, before the beach season, and to maintain the results of plastic surgery and contour correction. Due to the ability to narrow the pores, the gel is indicated for individuals with problematic, oily skin.

Restylane Skinboosters are available in two formulations (each of them also have a version with lidocaine):

  • Restylane Vital is used for improving skin quality on the face, neck, and décolletage;
  • Restylane Vital Light is designed for more delicate areas like the lips and under-eye region.

Restylane Skinboosters are suitable for solving many aesthetic problems:

  • Skinboosters replenish moisture and restore radiance to dull skin, leaving it looking revitalized and refreshed.
  • These injections reduce fine lines and superficial wrinkles by boosting skin hydration and creating a smoother and more youthful complexion.
  • Treatment with Skinboosters can address rough and uneven skin texture, providing a more even and “polished” skin surface.
  • This product can diminish the effects of sun damage by improving skin tone and texture for a more radiant complexion.
  • Skinboosters may improve the appearance of mild acne scars, providing a subtle lifting effect to the affected areas.

Restylane Skinboosters treatment involves a series of microinjections into the deep dermis or subcutaneous tissue, depending on the patient’s skin condition and the areas being treated. The injections are strategically spaced to ensure even coverage and optimal results.

Benefits of Restylane Skinboosters

Restylane Skinboosters offer many advantages that make them a popular choice among aesthetic doctors and patients seeking skin rejuvenation:

  • This treatment provides deep hydration that enhances skin plumpness and suppleness by replenishing the skin’s natural moisture levels.
  • Skinboosters from Restylane promote smoother skin texture, making them an effective option for patients with rough or uneven skin.
  • These products require no incisions, making them a good alternative to surgery or other invasive skin rejuvenation procedures.
  • The gradual improvement in skin quality ensures long-lasting and natural-looking results.
  • Restylane Skinboosters are versatile – they can be used on different body areas, providing patients with tailored treatment options for their specific needs.

Safety and Potential Side Effects of Restylane Skinboosters

Restylane Skinboosters have a strong safety profile with a low risk of adverse reactions. But as with any aesthetic procedure, there are some potential risks to consider.

The most common side effects of Restylane Skinboosters are mild and temporary and include the following reactions at the injection sites:

  • Redness;
  • Swelling;
  • Bruising.

Even though Restylane Skinboosters are made from non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid, which reduces the risk of allergic reactions, patients with known allergies to HA or lidocaine should not undergo the treatment.

Doctors should carefully evaluate patients to ensure they are suitable for Restylane’s skin boosting injections. Contraindications for this treatment are:

  • Severe allergies, hypersensitivity to hyaluronan or lidocaine;
  • Autoimmune diseases, epilepsy;
  • Oncology;
  • Diabetes;
  • Problems with blood clotting, taking anticoagulants;
  • Exacerbation of chronic diseases, fever, SARS;
  • Inflammation and injury of the skin in the injection zones;
  • Tendency to form keloids and scars;
  • Chemical peeling, laser procedures, and plastic surgery performed later than 3 weeks before the session;
  • Pregnancy or breastfeeding;
  • Minor age.

Following Restylane Skinboosters treatment, patients should adhere to aftercare instructions to optimize the procedure results and minimize the risk of complications.

Patients should avoid touching or massaging the treated areas immediately after the procedure. Applying cold or ice packs to the treated areas can help reduce swelling and discomfort. It is also vital to avoid sun exposure, strenuous exercise, and excessive heat for the first 24 hours after treatment.


Restylane Skinboosters’ product line is a powerful and versatile skin hydration and radiance enhancement solution. With their profound hydration benefits, Skinboosters can revitalize dull and dehydrated skin, promoting a smoother, more youthful complexion.

As patient demand for non-surgical and minimally invasive procedures grows, these products stand as an effective and safe option for people seeking skin rejuvenation, and more doctors want to buy Restylane Skinboosters. By incorporating Skinboosters into your practice, you can achieve radiant, glowing skin for your patients and boost their confidence in their appearance.


What areas can be treated with Skinboosters?

Restylane Skinboosters are suitable for various areas of the face and body. They can be used to:

  • Fight fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven texture, on the zones like the cheeks, forehead, nasolabial folds, and chin.
  • Enhance lips hydration, improve their texture, and provide a subtle plumping effect.
  • Improve the neck’s skin texture and hydration, helping with crepey skin and fine lines.
  • Skinboosters treatment can help restore hydration and improve skin quality in the décolletage area.
  • Plump and hydrate the skin on the back of the hands, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and enhancing skin texture.
  • Improve the appearance of mild acne scars, providing a subtle lifting effect and promoting skin healing.

The treatment provides natural-looking and long-lasting results and can be tailored to each patient’s needs and concerns.

Who should have a treatment with Restylane Skinboosters injections?

Restylane Skinboosters treatment is suitable for people with the following skin concerns:

  • Thin, dull, and dry skin;
  • Oily skin, acne;
  • Decreased dermis elasticity;
  • Small wrinkles on the face, neck, hands, décolleté;
  • Sun-damaged skin with pigmentation irregularities and decreased elasticity;
  • Photoaging;
  • Pigmentation, rosacea;
  • Enlarged pores and disrupted sebaceous glands.

However, Restylane Skinboosters would not be suitable for people with severe allergies to hyaluronic acid or lidocaine, autoimmune diseases, or certain medical conditions.

How long do Restylane Skinboosters last?

Generally, patients can expect the effects of skin boosting treatment to last between 6 to 12 months (depending on the patient’s individual factors and the area being treated).

Unlike traditional dermal fillers that enhance immediate volume, Skinboosters deeply hydrate the skin over time. Patients often undergo an initial series of treatment sessions (3-4 procedures with an interval of 2-4 weeks) to achieve optimal results. After the initial treatments, follow-up sessions are recommended every 6 months to maintain the skin’s improved hydration and radiance.

Patients must follow their doctor’s recommendations and attend scheduled follow-up appointments to ensure the longevity of the results and maximize the benefits of Restylane Skinboosters.
