Restylane Skinboosters™ are based on the scientifically proven efficacy of stabilized hyaluronic acid. Skinboosters offer long-lasting in-depth hydration of the skin where it is most needed. Restylane Vital (Skinboosters) affect a gradual improvement of skin quality. Your skin will regain a beautiful natural glow. As we age, our skin changes in more ways than fine lines, wrinkles and sagging. The skin’s structure also changes, becoming less elastic and smooth.
What are Restylane Skinboosters™?
Designed with patented NASHA™ technology, Restylane Skinboosters is a dermal filler that uses a unique form of hyaluronic acid. It 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. Unlike corrections brought by fillers, skin boosters are used to enhance the skin from within. Skinboosters improve the skin’s quality by rebalancing moisture levels in the skin and improving its elasticity.
Restylane Skinboosters™ is administered in the form of hydrating microinjections with hyaluronic acid, thereby replenishing natural hyaluronic acid-reserves and improving the skin from within for the long term. Restylane Skinboosters moisturize from within, stimulate collagen growth and provide long-lasting hydration to the areas treated. Similar to mesotherapy the product is injected deep into the skin with a small needle, covering the area in about 20 minutes. Restylane Skinboosters can help refresh the skin in the neck, face, lips, decolletage, back of the hands, knees and elbows.
Generally, results are noticeable immediately. One can expect long-term in-depth hydration, renourishing moisture balance, reduction of irregularities and small lines, suppler and smoother skin and reduction of acne scars and overall sun damage. Skin smoothness, elasticity and appearance will be gradually improved for a radiant-looking glow.

Dermal fillers: Cheek
As we age, our bodies begin to reduce the production of the essential substances, such as collagen and hyaluronic acid that keep our skin resilient and supple. Fine lines gradually set in, the skin develops new creases and we begin to see the indisputable effects of time. However, one of the most noticeable and transformative consequences of ageing is the loss of facial volume. In the cheek area, for example, age-related volume loss is due in part to the absorption of fat and bone, which together provide the skin with some necessary scaffolding. When the volume is diminished, the skin begins to sag and droop. In order to counteract falling skin, structure must be reintroduced. This is where volume restoration treatments come in.
At LMC, we strive to achieve more natural looking results with minimal chance of bruising and pain. In order to achieve this, LMC uses a microcannula to perform our facial filler injections! The microcannula has a blunt tip that is not sharp, and is flexible. As such, there is virtually no risk of cutting through veins & blood vessels. The final results are results that matter, with no pain and bruising.
Dermal fillers: Lip augmentation
Independent of age, some individuals were born with thin lips as this can be hereditary. Lip augmentation can restore fullness and rejuvenate the lips for a more youthful, natural appearance. Injectable fillers used for the lips are comprised of hyaluronic acid and can be used in a variety of ways to improve the lip appearance. Dermal fillers are designed to replenish hyaluronic acid and reverse the effects of volume loss in the lips and around the mouth. Dermal fillers may also be used to improve marionette lines, as well as a downward turn to the corners of the mouth which may impart a sad, angry or tired appearance. This technique provides a very subtle, yet noticeable improvement, resulting in lips that are fuller and smoother without undergoing an augmentation. Instant results can be achieved with this procedure.
