Everything you need to know about Skinboosters
What are Skinboosters?
The Skinbooster treatment is not intended to fill lines and wrinkles like regular dermal fillers would. Instead, it is to hydrate the skin from within and promote the formation of new collagen and elastin in the long term. Patients notice a more dewy and firmer appearance to the skin which is often chracterised as of having a ‘glow’ as a result. Unlike traditional dermal fillers, they are not injected beneath the skin to volumize/accentuate certain features of the face or to fill prominent lines and wrinkles. Instead they are injected directly into the dermis to hydrate and improve overall skin quality. The Skinbooster’s stabilized HA is very fluid, so the final result is smooth and subtle resulting in a healthy, plump and glowing complexion.
The treatment involves microinjections of a soft, gel-like substance called hyaluronic acid (HA) into the skin, which improves the skin’s firmness, elasticity and radiance. Water-loving HA is found naturally in the body where it maintains hydration in the skin. As we age, the quality of our HA diminishes over time. Now you have the opportunity to replenish and maintain natural hydration levels from within as the stabilised HA in Skinboosters.
Skinboosters are a very versatile and non intrusive treatment that can be used or men and women of all skin types, for people with younger or more mature skin and for people who want to improve skin structure, e.g. in acne-scarred or photo-damaged skin
What areas can be treated?
Because Skinboosters are so versatile, they can be used to treat the hands, lips, neck and as well as the face. During your initial consultation, you will be able to talk to the doctors about which areas you would like to see improvements in, to create a personalised treatment plan.
What is involved in the treatment?
Skinbooster treatments consist of multiple very fine injections into the chosen area of skin in order to gradually improve skin quality and give it a healthy glow. While you may see results after just one treatment, for optimal and longer lasting results we recommended a course of 3 treatments, each 2-4 weeks apart.
How long will the effects last?
Following the initial treatment, your body will gradually break down the HA in Skinboosters over the course of several months in a very similar way as it does with dermal fillers. To sustain your wonderful skin, it is recommended to have regular maintenance treatments, approximately every 6 months.
