Skin boosters infuse hyaluronic acid into the dermal layers of skin. They can improve skin health in areas such as-
- The eye area. Boosters reduce fine wrinkles that form around & underneath the eyes.
- The mouth area. Hyaluronic acid can reduce ‘smokers lines’, wrinkles & crepey skin.
- Neck & Decolletage – hydration with hyaluronic acid can instantly reduce wrinkles & fine lines, in turn plumping aged skin.
Hands – Hydrating Skin Boosters can counteract the visible signs of aging seen on the backs of hands.
The V2 Vital Injector is a novel injection system that delivers skin care actives to precise depths in target areas of skin. This treatment combines microneedling with the most powerful skin hydrating ingredient- hyaluronic acid.
V2 replaces the need of traditional injecting techniques as the device precisely controls the depth & the amount of hyaluronic acid injected. This depth control means the device can be used closer to sensitive areas such as the eyes.
The effects of the treatment will be immediately visible, & your skin will continue to improve in between each session as your skin gets firmer.
Results compound over time. 3 sessions 4-6 weeks apart are recommended.
No. We use a special mixture of numbing agents 30 to 60 minutes before your V2 treatment.
Good ones! We only stock leading brands of hyaluronic acids at Cutis Dermatology. These include small, medium & large molecules with varying ranges of cross linking. This provides the best hydration & longevity.
Ideally, 3 sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.
V2 Skin Booster can be used as a regenerative or as an anti-aging treatment, replenishing lost hydration & nutrients to the skin.
Results can last from 6-8 months. Most patients have ‘top’ ups at this time. Once you have had the initial 3 sessions, regular top ups will keep your skin subtle, firm & wrinkle free.
For most patients, it is immediate. If we increase the depth & passes, there may be bruising for 72 to 96 hours. Downtime is reduced after each subsequent treatment due to the dermal thickening.
Make up can be worn after 30 minutes. Avoid skin actives such as retinol, AHAs & chemical exfoliants for 72 to 96 hours after your treatment.
Avoid exercise the day of treatment, you can resume normal activities the very next day.
V2 goes to a deeper level than Aquagold & provides more dermal hydration. As a guide-
Aquagold: has less downtime & is used to treat superficial fine lines & wrinkles. Suited for patients between 20 to 45 years old with very little sun damage.
V2: has more downtime & used to hydrate more mature sun damage skin. The injection level is deeper than Aquagold, & is suitable for patients over the age of 40.
We recommend a free consultation if you are considering any form of skin rejuvenation. During this consultation we discuss your current skin concerns & goals. Our expert nurses will recommend the best treatment protocol for your skin.
Laser resurfacing addresses skin quality, namely fine lines, wrinkles, dull skin & pigmentation. Superficial lasers are great for collagen regeneration, especially when combined with prescription retinoids. Results from lasers take 2-4 months to achieve optimal outcomes.
V2 Skin Boosters are better for low downtime instant skin rejuvenation with hydration. The results are instant with boosters as it immediately plumps the skin with hyaluronic acid.
Think of lasers as encouraging collagen formation, & Skin Boosters as an instant fix.
Dermal fillers provide more support & lift as we inject hyaluronic acid in a deeper level as compared to V2 Booster injections. Dermal fillers are much better at replenishing large deficits of volume loss around the cheeks, eyes, jawline & lips.
Yes. We know that hyaluronic acid is not broken down by energy devices including radiofrequency, intense light, HIFU or lasers. The reason is that hyaluronic acid is stable at temperatures above 100 degrees for many minutes. Devices take the temperature of the skin to 67-69 degrees for a fraction of a second.
Our dermatologists have published this work in the Derm Surg. journal.
The V2 Vital Injector is a specialised injection system that uses either a 5 or 9 pin micro needle injector. This enables precision delivery of micro injections at pre-set depths. It takes the guesswork out of delivering fillers to various depths.
The V2 Vital Injector is often used with non-cross linked, multi-molecular weight dermal fillers, or mesotherapy solutions. Precise depth control means the device can be used closer to sensitive areas such as the eyes.
