Acne scars

Restylane Skin boosters are proving to be a secret weapon in Dr Renee’s arsenal against ance scars. In the past Dr Renee has used normal hyularonic acid fillers to left out acne scars but the limitation was what to do about the much more superficial scars that are often present, especially for women. Now she has the tool and is seeing great results. 

Skin boosters are cross linked slightly different to the fillers we use to plump lips and cheeks. They are light, sit just under the skin surface and absorb water to brings deep skin hydration to the treated areas and so improved firmness, elasticity and smoothness. Over time, the quality of your skin changes – collagen and elastic fibers disintegrate, and the spread and function of the body’s own hyaluronic acid change, making your skin drier, rougher and less elastic and acne scars are reduce. 

The treatment involves a series on tiny injections over the area being targeted with minute amounts of the filler being deposited under the skin surface. You will have a programme of treatments; one a month for three months, then one six months later and then one after a year for maintenance. The effects for acne are excellent. 

Alongside this, the treatment works well for skin in need of hydration or conditioning… Dr Renee is using it for the fine lines around the mouth, neck skin that has seen better days and the backs of hands.
