Permanently Hydrated Skin? Yes Please!

by | Oct 26, 2018

Are you satisfied with the skin rejuvenating benefits you’re receiving from your skin moisturiser? If so, you’re one of the few. Topical creams can only penetrate your skin to a certain degree. This is particularly true of over-the-counter products vs. the professional skincare products we offer our patients.

With hydrating injectable skin treatments, we can go where the problem is, deep below the surface. Injectable moisturisers have been with us for a while, but the single-needle technique was associated with inexact needling, prolonged treatment time, and more discomfort for patients. At Austin Clinic, we use the innovative new V2 Skin Booster system to give our patients 12 months of firm, strong, glowing skin.

6 Reasons to Love Injectable Moisturisers

It’s a common misconception that moisturisers replace the oil in our skin. The truth is that dry skin is due to a lack of water, not oil. “There are dozens of creams and lotions for dry skin,” reports a Harvard Health newsletter. “They are sold as moisturizers, which is more of a marketing term than a medical or scientific one. Indeed, routine skin care is a realm where there’s little science to be found.”

The same can’t be said for the V2 Skin Booster treatment. It has been studied in depth and researchers have found it to be more effective than other approaches to facial rejuvenation. With its ability to penetrate deep beneath the skin’s surface, our V2 Skin Booster:

  • Offers global skin rejuvenation across the entire face
  • Plumps skin
  • Gives skin a hydrated glow
  • Stimulates the production of elastin and collagen
  • Kick-starts natural cell turnover
  • Requires less downtime than other treatments

Another plus for patients is minimal discomfort. “The sensation is not unlike that of a vaccination,” a Harper’s Bazaar reporter wrote of her personal experience with injectable moisturisers. “It stings a little but not enough to make you wince.”

5 Tips to Keep Summer Skin Marvellously Moist

At Austin Clinic, we like to emphasise prevention when it comes to skin care. Do yourself a favour and:

Turn up the humidifier

Swap out hot baths for warm showers

Choose a mild soap

Wear loose clothing

Use sun screen

It Just Keeps Getting Better

There’s no hiding away under a scarf after a V2 Skin Booster treatment. Your skin will look better immediately following your first session, with

  • Fewer wrinkles
  • Better colour
  • Improved hydration
  • Increased suppleness

Your skin will continue to improve, reaching maximum rejuvenation at about four weeks following treatment, and the benefits can be enjoyed for up to a year.

In an interview with Vogue magazine, a cosmetic physician from London summed it up like this, “Put simply, the penetration of topical skincare will always fall short when compared to something that goes under the skin.” If you’d like to experience a higher level of skin rejuvenation, we invite you to visit us to learn more about the V2 Skin Booster treatment.
