Age, stress, hormonal imbalance as well as sun exposure, tobacco and a careless lifestyle are all factors involved in skin aging. At any age, skin aging is accentuated by the loss of luminosity on your face.
Your complexion dulls, lines develop, the texture of your skin is uneven, wrinkles and lines appear. All these parameters create dark areas on your face and your skin gradually loses its ability to reflect light.
As far as oxidative stress is concerned, the balance between detoxifying molecules (antioxidants) and toxic elements (oxidants) can be disturbed by many external factors. The excess of oxidants attacks the skin decreasing its elasticity and tonicity, leaves the skin dry and dehydrated.
Thanks to the availability of skin boosters, it is now possible to restore this balance by adequately nourishing the skin from within.
At My Bliss Clinic, there are 2 types of skin boosters available: Teosyal Puresense Redensity I and Juvederm Volite.
This is a new treatment concept between dermal filler injections and mesotherapy. By injecting Teosyal Puresense Redensity [I] into the dermal (deeper) layer of your skin, it helps to redensify your skin deep down and restores its ability to reflect light. This innovation provides uniform and totally natural result.
Teosyal PureSense Redensity [I] is a unique hyaluronic acid-based skin enhancer which prevents premature skin aging, restores skin density and maintains skin glow. It is an exclusive formula designed from a rigorous selection of non-allergenic ingredients:
1. Hyaluronic acid – for dermal deep rehydration and redensification.
2. Dermo-Restructuring Complex – combines natural components all synergistically involved in redensifying the dermis and providing antioxidant protection: 3 potent antioxidants, 2 minerals, 1 vitamin and 8 amino acids.
3. Lidocaine – anaesthetic effect for more injection comfort.
Treatments are recommended to be done once every 3 to 4 weeks for 3 sessions, thereafter once every 6 months for optimal results.
Volite is the newest products from Juvederm, the world’s leading brand of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. It is a minimally invasive injectable treatment that delivers hyaluronic acid directly into the dermis layer of the skin. Hyaluronic acid attracts water to hydrate skin, improve elasticity and reduce fine lines. It is recognized to bring benefits to the skin by stimulating collagen production.
Juvederm Volite uses patented Vycross technology and provides thorough tissue integration, resulting in a smooth and natural look with long lasting duration.
Studies show that after a single treatment, improvement on skin hydration, smoothness and elasticity can last up to 9 months.

Message from Dr. Elson
Skin boosters are mainly used for skin hydration and make the skin glowing. If you are looking for more improvement on the overall skin texture and complexion, Rejuran Healer PDRN and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) will be the better options.
