WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE?
Skin Boosters are an innovative way to restore the skin’s natural moisture and suppleness. Skin Boosters typically take the form of a Hyaluronic Acid-based solution and are designed to be injected directly into the dermis, where they deliver hydration and help to plump up slack skin. The technique can be used on the face, backs of the hands, neck and décolleté.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Injected under the skin, Skin Boosters deposit micro amounts of Hyaluronic Acid, which spread throughout the dermis and infuse the tissues with moisture. Injected with either a needle or cannula, Skin Boosters stimulate a controlled trauma to the skin, stimulating increased production of collagen and elastin.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Skin Boosters are suitable for patients looking to boost a hydrated, luminous and smooth–looking complexion.
IS IT SAFE?
Yes, however, Skin Boosters should only ever be administered by a specially trained physician.
IS IT PAINFUL?
Skin Boosters are not painful, whether administered with a needle or cannula; however, a topical numbing cream can be applied beforehand.
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME?
Skin feels tender and might appear flushed immediately afterwards, and tiny bruises might occur at the injection sites. However, this tends to settle quickly.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
The effects will continue to develop over time, though skin will appear immediately plump and feel noticeably hydrated. For an enhanced result, Skin Boosters can be combined with treatments such as HydraFacial, Dermalux LED lights or BTL Exilis.
