Skin boosters are products similar to very fine dermal fillers injected into the skin to hydrate nourish and rejuvenate. They are used for skin re-densification.
The treatment involves hydrating 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 stabilized ha in skinboosters’ therapy.
They are different to the traditional dermal fillers. Fillers can be used to create volume in the face or to change the shape of the face, skinboosters cannot do this. They are microinjections placed only inside the skin to make it look younger, healthier and plumper.
They can be used on any part of the body, including face, neck, décolletage, elbows, knees and hands, where they can improve fine lines and skin hydration.
