What is a Skin Booster and what are its benefits?

As we grow older, our skin loses collagen, fat, hyaluronic acid and water. This inevitable process begins as early as 20-28 years of age. The long and stressful work hours that define most of our lives also result in skin and pores that are dry, baggy, rough and wrinkled. The skin moisturizers that many of us resort to are not an effective way of solving these problems.

 

Skin boosters are a far better option. Making use of the hyaluronic acid dermal filler, skin boosters are injected into the surface level of the skin and pores to hydrate them and give them a glowing appearance. The fillers of the skin booster can also be injected into large remedy areas of the face, neck and fingers in order to increase their level of hydration. Unlike traditional dermal fillers, skin boosters are not injected under the skin to volumise or form the face.

 

The treatment is highly recommended for patients who seek to improve their skin’s overall quality and degree of hydration. Skin boosters have the following benefits:

  • The fluidity of the dermal fillers used results in smooth skin.
  • The production of new collagen and elastin gives rise to dewier and firmer skin, creating a youthful and radiant look.
  • The treatment hydrates skin well and produces radiant, sparkling skin.
  • The treatment is suitable for most skin types.

During the treatment, an advanced micro-injection machine is used to direct a series of micro-injections just below the surface of the skin. These injections are performed to activate fibroblasts, a type of cell that promotes new collagen and elastin formation, and to deliver hyaluronic acid, creating skin and pores that are healthy, radiant and plump. Depending on the patient’s needs, the treatment can last for 20-40 minutes.

 

Numbing cream is applied to the areas of treatment to reduce pain and discomfort. The skin booster itself contains anaesthetic properties, making the treatment safe and gentle on the skin. Mild bruising or swelling might result but the symptoms typically disappear after treatment. If they persist, consult your doctor for more information.

 

Note that the treatment is unsuitable for female patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
