Injectable Skin Boosters
What are these?
Injectable skin boosters improve the hydration and density of the skin, diminish fine lines and give the complexion a youthful glow. The procedure is safe, effective and non-permanent.
What is the procedure?
A liquid containing hyaluronic acid and mixture of amino acids that feed the skin is injected by a health professional under the surface of the skin. The injections are normally administered in three sessions, two to three weeks apart. A booster treatment is recommended after three to six months to maintain the effect.
Who are they most suitable for?
Unlike a dermal filler, these treatments are not designed to create volume or change the shape of your face – the effect is more subtle and is suitable for all. Injectable skin boosters are equally popular among those wanting to look radiant on a special day as they are for people seeking younger looking skin.
Injectable skin booster can be used to treat the following issues;
- Fine lines in the neck
- Fine lines around the eyes
- Fine lines on the cheeks
- Ageing hands
- Sun damaged skin
- Uneven skin tone
- Dull, dry complexion
How do they work?
The key ingredient is hyaluronic acid – don’t be put off by the name for this is a substance found naturally in the body. It is a magnet for water and has the ability to absorb 1,000 times its weight! Around 50% of our hyaluronic acid is produced in the skin, where it provides hydration, structure and protection from UV damage. But as we age, our bodies make less of it and our skin starts to look drier, less firm and dull.
Injectable skin boosters use a liquid formulation of hyaluronic acid which disperses evenly under the top layer of skin. It instantly enhances the skin’s hydration and stimulates the production of collagen.
