Skin injection treatments, which is essentially the only way moisture or nutrients can ge to the skin where it is needed, has become a popular choice in the aesthetic world, leading to a rise in many types of injectable treatments.
With so many options to choose from, with very subtle and sometimes confusing differences, lies the big question, "which one am I suitable for?"
Here's a breakdown of the different types of treatments that are available today:
1) Rejuran Healer - Skin Healer
Rejuran is an excellent product for skin healing due to its unique properties of PDRN that promotes a healthy cell division.
It is made of Polynucleotides (Wild Salmon DNA) and is delivered to the dermal-epidermal junction to improve the biological condition of damaged skin. *Research has shown that salmon DNA is an effective key ingredients to address ageing skin by providing rejuvenation and repairing the skin from inside.
At VIDASKIN, the treatment is administered through the manual injection method using a very small needle which leads to minimal pain and downtime, which means customers can go back to work almost immediately.
Some applications of using Rejuran, would be to help improve dry skin, treat injured skin such as eczema and enhance the healing for post-laser treatment.
What's great about the product, is that it can also be used in conjunction with skin boosters!
2) Skin Boosters - Extra Hydration
If you are looking to get smooth and glowing skin, then Skin Boosters are perfect for you. Skin Boosters is a name that is not new to the Medical Aesthetics scene, with so many different brands available in the market.
What's common is that they are mostly composed of Hyaluronic Acid - which absorbs its own weight 1000x in water and holds it in the skin. This helps to restore the skin's firmness, giving a natural hydration and radiance, that all of us would love to have.
This treatment also has a minimal downtime, which means you can get back to work almost instantly, or the next day!
What's also important to note is that you can combine Rejuran Skin Healer and Skinboosters. Because whilst Rejuran Skin Healer gives excellent long term age prevention to the skin, it does not really give you the immediate results of skin dewiness which you see with Skinboosters.
*At VIDASKIN, we use the popular Vital injector device straight from Korea to deliver the highest quality medical-grade hyaluronic acid into the skin with precision, ensuring optimal dosage and depth. The Vital Injector, uses a unique 5-pin multi needle system and vacuum technology which makes the treatment quicker and more comfortable for our customers.
We recommend to complete a program of 3 treatments about 3 weeks apart, ensuring long-lasting and sustainable results.
3) Radiesse - Turn back the hands of time
Radiesse is a well-known facial filler, however, it is the only filler that is FDA approved for hand rejuvenation.
It is a filler made up of a naturally occurring substance (calcium hydroxyapatite), which is suspended in a water-based gel. These unique properties give it an excellent lifting capacity, which helps to remodel skin and has tremendous collagen stimulating ability, making it well-suited for restoring volume if a full face skin volume restoration is needed, as well as the hands.
The results which lasts for a year or longer, will help restore a more youthful look to the hands by reducing the appearance of tendons and veins.
From our personal experience, all our patients found the treatment very tolerable with little to no down-time. It is suitable probably for older, thinner skin which needs both rejuvenation as well as volume replacement.
4) Profhilo - Time Reversing Injection
If Radiesse is known for "turning back the hands of time", then Profhilo would be known as the "Time-Reversing" injection for the face.
It is known for having the highest concentration of Hyaluronic Acid in the market, about 5 times more than the average skin booster.
This works wonders for the skin in providing skin rejuvenation, hydration and collagen & elastin stimulation. This means that you will expect more skin firmness as well as lifting effects for your skin.
The product is created using a brand new proprietary technology that allows Hyaluronic Acid to spread within the layer of skin after injection. Therefore, only requiring 5 injection points on each side of the face using the Bio Aesthetic Point (BAP) technique.
Below is a table, to give a comparison between Profhilo and other skinbooster treatments.
