Viscoderm® is a medical product line manufactured by IBSA Farmaceutici, who is known for their knowledge of Hyaluronic acid. Viscoderm® is often reffered to as a “skin booster” product line used for intradermal use. The anti-ageing product line is based on highly purified natural hyaluronic acid with a high molecular weight, which helps to restore the skin's support structures and improve skin tone, elasticity and tightness. The Viscoderm® treatments can be given in all areas of the skin that are affected by the aging process, but is particularly recommended for dry, irritated and dehydrated skin.
Viscoderm® is specially known for their Viscoderm Hydrobooster, which is a HA injectable that provides deep hydration and superficial stretching of fine wrinkles. The Hydrobooster is a little sister of Profhilo H+L, which is also used to improve tissue quality.
The Viscoderm® line of injectables addresses the needs of aging skin by combining different personalized treatments. These treatments are ideal for all areas of the skin that suffers from the ongoing aging process. IBSA’s injectable Viscoderm® products have a defined injection depth and technique. Furthermore, the application guarantees satisfactory results and safe treatment cycles.
Viscoderm Hydrobooster is the perfect treatment to hydrate the skin and improve the appearance of the most dynamic areas of the face that shows moderate to advanced signs of ageing, particularly round the eyes and on the forehead. Viscoderm Hydrobooster is lightly injected into the skin’s mid-deep dermis, where it restores the hydration levels and improves the structure, firmness and elasticity of the skin. The result obtained with Viscoderm Hydrobooster is a fresh and youthful appearance.
THE EFFECTS OF HYALURONIC ACID
Hyaluronic acid is a clear substance that is naturally produced by the body. The main functions of hyaluronic acid is to retain water to keep the skin tissues hydrated, lubricated and moisturized. A hydrated skin also helps to smooth wrinkles and other signs of aging.
A gradual loss of hyaluronic acid in the skin is one of the main causes of aging, which start to appear as micro-wrinkles, loss of radiance and firmness, and changes in the skin texture. Besides the visible changes, there are many other ongoing degenerative processes below the skin surface. As the production of HA decreases, a cascade of functional skin changes. This can be seen in a reduction of the fibroblast activity, decreased collagen and elastic fibers as well as decreased firmness.
HOW DOES BIOREVITALIZATION WORK?
Biorevitalization is a non-surgical revitalization of the skin that activates the biological functions in the skin in order to fight skin ageing and various skin problems. During the procedure, the skin is injected with small doses of pure hyaluronic acid, which helps to stimulate the important fibroblast that stimulates the production of collagen and elastin as well as stimulating the skins natural hyaluronic acid production.
After a biorevitalizing treatment, the patient will notice an evening of wrinkles as well as a smooth and moisturized skin. At first, the reduced effects of wrinkles will appear due to the injected hyaluronic acid and later due to the increased synthesis of the skins own hyaluronic acid and collagen.
Biorevitalization is the ideal technique for optimizing the skins physiology and achieve esthetic improvement for aged and photo-damaged skin.
