Designed for administration into the mid dermis, VISCODERM 2.0% is a gel whose composition is based on pure non-crosslinked hyaluronic acid. It is used for dermal restructuring of thicker skin that has experienced advanced aging; a filler effect can also be obtained on some types of wrinkles. No Lidocaine has been added to skinbooster VISCODERM 2.0%, so it is safe to administer to patients who suffer from Lidocaine allergy.
Because of its high content of water, youthful skin has tone and elasticity. Hyaluronic acid is what is largely responsible for retaining dermal moisture, but gradually skin has less and less of this necessary component; it also experiences a reduction in fibroblast activity and a decrease in collagen production. As a result, atrophy and dehydration characterize aging skin. Skinbooster VISCODERM 2.0% is used to restructure areas of thick skin that have a great deal of photoaging or chronological aging. It restores volume and hydration, and stimulates fibroblast activity with a concomitant increase in collagen production. The purity of VISCODERM 2.0%’s hyaluronic acid means it is less likely to cause swelling, so it’s possible to use larger amounts while still obtaining natural-looking outcomes.
Indicated for biorestructuration that leads to improved skin texture and tone, skinbooster VISCODERM 2.0% can also be used for filling and correcting wrinkles such as those that appear in the nasolabial area. Treatment with skinbooster VISCODERM 2.0% does not give immediate results; these are cumulative over the course of successive sessions. The suggested treatment protocol is four initial sessions, 20 days apart, with visits every four to six months for maintenance.
Skinbooster VISCODERM 2.0% is manufactured in Italy by IBSA – a Swiss-Italian pharmaceutical company. It is made of non-crosslinked sodium hyaluronate from a non-animal source. The concentration of hyaluronic acid is 20 mg/ml. Each package contains 1 ml of gel prefilled in a syringe and accompanied by 1 x 30G x 12 mm needle and 1 x 30G TW x 12 mm needle.
