Skin Booster

What are Skin Boosters?

Skin boosters are injectables that improve hydration, skin texture, elasticity and overall appearance. Skin booster treatment involves injecting hyaluronic acid which is a soft, gel-like substance under the skin, which improves the skin's giving an overall radiance and glow. Essentially skin boosters increase the levels of hydration in the skin and stimulate the production of collagen, improving fine lines and wrinkles, producing firmer and younger looking skin. Skin booster injections contain soft, gel-like substance called Hyaluronic Acid (HA). This is a substance that occurs naturally in the skin and holds incredible amounts of moisture. However, due to factors such age, sun exposure, genetics and environmental factors, HA can depletes which is what causes skin to become dry and dehydrated. Skin Boosters are injected using microdroplet or mesotherapy technique of tiny injections. This process of delivering skin boosters also triggers the skin’s own repair resulting in collagen production and improved skin elasticity.

Another key benefit of skin boosters is that it is used to treat many different skin areas and skin types. Most common areas are the face followed by the neck, chest and the hands. In contrast to fillers, Skin Boosters help improve collagen and elastin.
