What does Hydrobooster do?
So, for a start, Viscoderm offers deep hydration and leaves skin looking radiant and super smooth. Skin feels more ‘springy’ as elasticity improves and it also offers a superficial ‘stretching’ of skin. The skin appears more plump in the areas treated and wrinkles are less obvious.
Whereas Profhilo mostly treats mid and lower face skin ‘laxity’, Viscoderm injected superficially into all the fine lines and wrinkles over the face. From the forehead to chin lines, -making it a fantastic stand-alone treatment in its own right. But paired with Profhilo, these sisters are a game-changer in our battle against the loss of collagen as we age
Which areas can be treated?
Viscoderm Hydrobooster offers both deep hydration and a superficial stretching of wrinkles. This makes it fantastic for those traditionally difficult to treat areas. For example perioral (smoker’s/barcode lip lines), wrinkles all around the eyes and forehead lines.
How is it used?
Hydrobooster is a stand alone treatment or an alternative to Botox. It can also be fantastically effective when combined with other treatments and is a great add on for those annoying wrinkles that Botox can’t treat. It’s also a really effective treatment for those trickier areas on the face, like upper lip lines and crows feet.
We’re loving this new treatment already and Dr. Stephanie is sure this will become a firm favourite!
Does it hurt?
No. We firstly apply a topical numbing cream beforehand or the option of local anaesthetic (dental) injections for treating lip lines. The needle we use is super fine. Plus we put only a small amount of Viscoderm into the skin each time.
At Orchard House we use Clinisept Anti-microbial solution to ensure thorough cleansing and sterility of the skin prior to any aesthetic procedure.
