Dr Rahma Targett talks us through the difference in these two popular treatments.
What is Bio-remodelling filler?
Bio-remodelling is a new and innovative approach to skin rejuvenation designed to remodel multi-layer skin tissue, falling under the cosmetic injectables category. It is a non-surgical treatment formulated to specifically improve the appearance of skin laxity (skin firmness and structure) and improve the resilience of skin. In comparison with traditional dermal fillers, bio-remodelling filler doesn’t volumise but alternatively acts to stimulate the skin to produce more of its own Hyaluronic Acid, collagen and elastin. As bio-remodelling filler contains a higher concentration of an ultrapure Hyaluronic Acid, the formulation helps your skin to look more hydrated, plump, fresh and youthful as it lifts and tightens sagging tissue.
Results of bio-remodelling filler are also shown to improve overall skin texture, especially in areas that have an appearance of crepeiness and sagging. This makes bio-remodelling filler a great treatment on areas such as the front of the neck and décolletage, whilst also being suitable for hand rejuvenation.
Another difference to note when comparing bio-remodelling filler and dermal filler is that dermal filler is usually injected into particular areas such as the lips or cheeks. Bio-remodelling filler is administered across the entire face rather than focussing on one area, so you can ensure total face rejuvenation is the focus. It is best to remember that when it comes to skin rejuvenation different approaches may work better for different people, so although the approach of bio-remodelling filler is different to conventional dermal fillers, one is not necessarily better than the other. It’s about finding what works best for you and your skin to achieve the goals you have.
Who would benefit most from this treatment?
The best candidates for bio-remodelling filler are those who present any signs of ageing, particularly adults aged from 40-50 years. Bio-remodelling filler is specifically designed to overcome visible signs of the physical ageing process such as fine lines and wrinkles and skin sagging from loss of volume.
What is the V2 Beauty Booster treatment?
The V2 Beauty Booster is an innovative skin rejuvenation treatment I offer at my North Adelaide clinic, Advanced Cosmetic Medicine. Ultimately, it is an injectable hydration treatment which combines techniques and benefits from the likes of skin needling and the injection of dermal fillers. The result is a plumper, firmer, more hydrated and radiant appearance which is visible after just one treatment. The face is the most common area to be treated, however you can also treat sensitive areas such as your neck, décolletage and hands if you are wanting to rejuvenate these areas. Another reason why I love the V2 Beauty Booster is because it can accommodate all skin types and be customised to suit a variety of skin conditions.
The V2 Beauty Booster treatment involves the administration of a uniquely formulated and patented hydrator serum consisting of Hyaluronic Acid, antioxidants, amino acids, minerals and vitamins which are naturally already found in our skin, but deplete with age. Using the hand-held V2 Injector gun, this unique filler is injected superficially under the skin using Mesotherapy technique to plump the skin, promote collagen production, reduce hollowness and smoothen wrinkles to replenish dull and ageing skin. The V2 Injector is an essential part of this treatment because it allows fine control of the amount of filler ingredient injected as well as exact control over the depth it is injected. This is extremely important for optimal results to be achieved.
Mesotherapy is a lesser known non-surgical technique that has been popular in Europe for some time and is now becoming a popular alternative to mainstream skin rejuvenation techniques in Australia. It involves delivering micro amounts of a nourishing solution into the dermis of the skin, usually by way of a skin needling device such as the V2 Injector gun. These controlled micro-injuries assist in the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, which as a result produces thicker, tighter and more elastic skin.
Who would benefit most from this treatment?
If your skin needs a quick and effective boost of hydration from the inside out, or you are wanting to achieve a plump and dewy appearance, this treatment may be for you. Although the V2 Beauty Booster is marketed as an anti-ageing treatment, anyone that has skin concerns such as a tired, dull complexion or fine lines and wrinkles they wish to target is an ideal candidate. Due to the V2 Beauty Booster’s ability to be highly customisable, a personal treatment plan including the V2 Beauty Booster can be arranged for you at a consultation with your cosmetic physician.
