Why Skin Boosters?
Due to environmental factors such as frequent UV exposure, air pollution and harsh weather conditions our skin bears the burden of sagging, dullness, wrinkles, and overall ageing. The ageing process decreases the skins natural elasticity and firmness, therefore creating a need to seek out further methods to maintain good skin health above the regular skin care routines that target the outer surface of the skin.
What are Skin Boosters?
A skin booster is an injectable fine gel like substance predominantly consisting of Hyaluronic acid (HA)such as brands like; Prophilo, Sunekos, Seventy Hyall and Infini. These are then administered through a series of superficial injections. The skin booster is set to target hydration from within, delivering the selected product directly into the skins dermal layer. When the Hyaluronic acid is released into the skin it triggers a chain reaction of events. This means that the treatment has ongoing benefits beyond the course of treatment. Your skin starts to work harder to increase the production of collagen and elastin, both result in creating smoother and firmer skin. Hyaluronic acid bonds to water, it can hold 1000 times its own weight, thus hydrating the skin from within resulting in more youthful appearance. Overall, a skin booster will make you look fresher, brighter, and younger.
What areas can be treated?
The treatment is extremely versatile so can also be used on many areas, most commonly treated are;
But can also be used to add hydration to the décolletage, thighs, arms and stretch marks.
Skin Booster After Care
Skin Boosters products are biodegradable, this means they will be naturally broken down by the body after a period. To ensure an optimal and long-lasting result it is advised to have a course of three treatments around 4 weeks apart, followed by a maintenance treatment once every 6 – 12 months dependant on the individual and desired outcome.
Downtime following a treatment is minimal, although some patients may experience some redness around the injection site, usually it is painless, and patients are able to carry on with their day as normal and return straight to work.
