Viscoderm Skin Booster Logo

Viscoderm® is referred to as a “skin booster” product line for intradermal use. It is manufactured by IBSA Farmaceutici Italia and distributed in the UK & Ireland by HA-Derma Ltd. It helps restore the support structures of skin tissue, resulting in increased tone, elasticity and firmness. The treatment areas coincide with all areas of skin affected by the ageing process. The indications for Viscoderm products vary from facial treatments to specific areas of the body.
