Human skin aging is a complex biological process that leads to structurally weak and aesthetically unappealing skin. The major aspects of skin aging, such as laxity, dermal thinning and wrinkles formation, are closely related to a marked reduction in hyaluronic acid (HA) content in the extracellular matrix. HA injections stimulate cellular functionality and rehydrate the tissues, giving the skin a renewed compactness and shine, with a consequent corrective effect on signs of aging. However, as time passes, the skin loses its ability to produce collagen and elastin, even in the case of HA-based skin treatment. Thus, an “overboost” protocol is frequently needed to achieve a superior level of skin quality. In the present case series, two HA formulations (Viscoderm® Hydrobooster and Profhilo®, IBSA Farmaceutici Italia Srl) were combined to reach this “overboost” level, hydrating and remodeling the skin at different levels and depths. This multilevel treatment has refined dry skin and stretched wrinkles in patients dissatisfied with their periocular appearance by improving main skin parameters, such as hydration, elasticity, and roughness, creating the optimal condition to prevent and counteract the skin aging processes.
