A beauty treatment rather than a dermal filler, skinbooster VISCODERM 0.8% is made of pure non-crosslinked hyaluronic acid that is free of chemical agents. Designed for treating delicate and very thin skin, it is a sterile gel meant for the epidermis and papillary dermis. As it does not contain Lidocaine, skinbooster VISCODERM 0.8% is suitable for administration to patients who are allergic to that anesthetic.
Excellent as a preventative treatment, skinbooster VISCODERM 0.8% is used for hydration and bio-revitalization of the skin. A fundamental component of skin, hyaluronic acid has an intrinsic ability to retain moisture but is present in ever-decreasing quantities as the body ages. Skinbooster VISCODERM 0.8% not only greatly increases moisture in the skin, but because the molecular weight of its hyaluronic acid makes the product very similar to naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid, it is highly biocompatible and easily integrates into the skin. By boosting and supporting the structure of the skin tissues, it’s possible to increase overall elasticity and brightness, qualities associated with young skin.
Skinbooster VISCODERM 0.8% is indicated for the prevention of the appearance of aging, for rejuvenation of the delicate, thin skin on the back of the hands and around the eyes, for making acne scars less visible, and for ameliorating skin that has been damaged by smoking and sun exposure. The effects of treatment with skinbooster VISCODERM 0.8% are cumulative, so results will most likely not be visible after just one session. The recommended protocol is three initial treatments, 20 days apart, with maintenance visits every four to six months.
Skinbooster VISCODERM 0.8% comes in a syringe pre-filled with 1 ml of gel accompanied by 2 x 30G1/2” needles. The product is made of non-crosslinked sodium hyaluronate that is not of animal origin. The concentration of hyaluronic acid is 8 mg/ml. Skinbooster VISCODERM 0.8% is manufactured in Italy by IBSA – a Swiss-Italian pharmaceutical company.
