Regardless of anything else we do to protect our skin, poor hydration may undermine our efforts, leaving the skin looking noticeably damaged. Over-the-counter creams only temporarily moisturise the skin at the surface rather than providing deep, long-lasting hydration.

While some of us reach for ever richer moisturisers to apply, others are choosing to inject moisture into their skin!

Dermal fillers can be used to great effect as part of a long-term approach to skin hydration treatment. They work by increasing the levels of hyaluronic acid in the skin, leaving it hydrated and restoring a healthy, younger looking glow.

What are Skinbooster/Rehydration treatments?

Hydration is an important part of achieving a healthy skin tone and elasticity. However, our skin may dry out as its natural levels of hyaluronic acid diminish due to age, smoking, sun exposure, and environmental factors. This is most noticeable in areas that are more exposed to the elements, such as the face, neck and hands.

The original clinic-grade skinboosters were designed to ‘improve hydrobalance’ of our skin by providing long-lasting, intensified hydration from within the skin layer. Basically, they help our skin to stay moisturised for longer!

Most skinboosters in the market are made of hyaluronic acid, and help provide hydration, increase moisture levels, and increase sub-dermal collagen production.

What benefits are there for your skin?

Rehydration Fillers help to deeply hydrate the skin from beneath, firming and plumping your complexion. Eradicating fine facial lines, this treatment is particularly effective around the lips. Skin appears smoother, younger and fresher.

Dermal filler rehydration has been developed specifically to improve skin quality by improving its hydration.  No other treatment works within the skin structure to moisturize, plump and increase skin density and elasticity by directly replenishing is rehydrating function.  This is good for dehydrated thinner skin.

Rehydration fillers work by replacing the hyaluronic acid in the body that has depleted over time, this restores the volume beneath the skin’s surface. They are used to treat facial wrinkles and folds and to enhance the appearance of the lips.

How do they work?

“They are administered through a series of tiny injections that works to plump and hydrate skin, smoothing out roughness and evening out depressions,” Medcare’s Dr Hussain explains.

She says the treatment will help iron out fine lines around the eyes, plus it “can also treat the neck, décolletage and hands,” but the results are subtle and it’s more about age-proofing the face instead of turning back the clock.

In Dr Hussain’s opinion, “this rehydration treatment is the perfect choice for those who want to improve their overall skin quality, as it visibly improves luminosity, elasticity and hydration, as well as the appearance of fine lines.”

Hyaluronic acid skinboosters are placed under the skin with precise individual manual injections after a round of topical numbing. These small deposits of skinboosters act like water reservoirs under the skin, absorbing and retaining moisture for long-term lasting hydration. This increase in hydration brightens the skin, resulting in plump, supple, and dewy skin.

What is Hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid, the molecule that can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water, occurs naturally in our body but levels starts to deplete when we hit aged 26. Given that hydrated skin means plumper skin, losses in hyaluronic acid contribute to visible ageing – which is where treatments come in.

As well as being found in endless skincare products promising a short-term hydration hit, hyaluronic acid forms the most popular type of injectable filler used to temporarily fill lines, plus volumise the skin and facial contours.

Studies have shown that Hyaluronic acid not only helps improves skin hydration, it also:

  • aids collagen production
  • improve skin elasticity
  • provide anti-oxidative benefits
  • accelerates wound healing
  • and reduces inflammation

What else is included in the treatment?

An award-winning rejuvenation product, Teosyal Redensity I is a cost-effective skin revitaliser, designed to restore luminosity, hydration and tone to the skin. In this regard, it serves a different purpose than most injectable fillers in the fact that it is a light filling innovation that specifically targets dull complexion, fine lines, and dehydrated skin on your face, neck, décolletage and hands.

Teosyal Redensity I is an extremely PURE product consisting of 8 amino acids, 3 antioxidants, 2 minerals, hydrating hyaluronic acid, and 1 vitamin – all ingredients naturally present in the skin. It is a new concept, developed by Teoxane Laboratories in Geneva, which combines dermal filling techniques and mesotherapy to restore the skin’s ability to reflect light.

How long does it last?

Whilst immediate results are achieved, the real exciting improvements come after 3 treatments – with a recommended 3-week interval between each treatment. The treatment does not, however, cease the natural ageing of the skin, so, whilst permanent, it is recommended that users return to their physician for periodic re-treatment for maintenance.
