Restylane Vital Light SB is an injectable preparation based on hyaluronic acid, which is used for biorevitalization of the face, neck, decollete, and the back of the hands. The product was developed by the Swedish company Q-Med, part of the pharmaceutical company Galderma (Switzerland), and is designed for young, thin and/or sensitive skin.
Main characteristics of Restylane Vital Light SB skin booster based on hyaluronic acid 1 ml
SB in the name of the cosmetic product indicates its type - "skin booster". The product is something in-between the biorevitalization and filler. The skin booster differs from the classic preparation for biorevitalisation in its use of stabilized hyaluronic acid (which is preserved in the tissue longer), and from fillers - with lower density and higher fluidity (which allows for deep skin rejuvenation at all levels). The concentration of hyaluronic acid in Restylane Vital Light gel is 12 mg/ml.
Hyaluronic acid, which is the active ingredient of the biorevitalizing product, is stabilized using a patented Swiss technology NASHA (Non Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid). The peculiarity and advantages of this technology are:
safety of the procedure for the body. Sodium Hyaluronate of synthetic origin is easily accepted by skin tissues, does not cause negative immune response;
the low content of BDDE ether and the absence of toxic effects. Due to this, the side effects after the procedure are insignificant;
the unique property of hyaluronic acid to attract moisture in large quantities, creating a kind of hydro depot. After the biodegradation of the gel, the skin remains moisturized and retains a healthy glow, while the skin booster is eliminated from the tissues through the organs of the excretory system in the form of carbon dioxide and water.
The phosphate buffer, which is also included in the product, maintains the normal pH level of the dermis and minimizes swelling after injections.
Skin booster is available in ready-to-use 1 ml syringes and comes with 3 29G ½ needles. Restylane Vital Light SB is priced slightly lower than its lidocaine version. However, an anesthetic cream must be used before injections to reduce the patient's pain sensation.
Application area of Restylane Vital Light SB skin booster based on hyaluronic acid 1 ml
Restylane Vital Light hyaluronic skin booster is suitable for women and men with any skin type - both dry and oily, problematic skin. Injections can be performed all over the face, including the sensitive areas around the eyes and mouth. In addition, Restylane Vital Light soft gel is perfectly suitable for biorevitalisation of the skin on the neck, hands and decollete area.

- age and/or photoaging;
- decreased elasticity of the epidermis;

The procedure shows the best results in patients aged 25-30 years or at an older age - but in combination with other techniques. Gel injections are recommended to restore epidermis after chemical peeling and laser resurfacing.
Biorevitalization injection can only be performed by a cosmetologist who has received special training in working with the preparation. Before injections, the skin is cleaned with a mild cleanser and treated with a disinfectant. The gel is injected into the medial layer of the dermis for deeper tissue repair. Together with anesthesia, injections on the face, decollete, neck and hands take no more than one hour.
Biorevitalization is carried out with a course of 3-4 sessions at 4 week intervals. It is recommended to repeat the course in about six months.
Results of application
The effect of skin booster injections is usually noticeable after 1-2 treatments. After the side effects (swelling, redness and papules) go away, the skin looks healthy and rested. The complexion improves, wrinkles and scars are reduced, pigment spots are lightened. If the skin is oily, the fat secretion is normalized. The result after a course of biorevitalization is kept for 6-9 months.
In the first days after the injections you should not cover your skin with greasy creams and decorative cosmetics. It is not advisable to sunbathe, go to a sauna for 2 weeks, or do heavy physical exercises.
Skin booster injections are contraindicated for pregnant and lactating women, teenagers, people suffering from epilepsy, cancer diseases, low blood clotting.
