Skinboosters reverse the skin aging process by reintroducing hyaluronic acid (HA) into our skin by two main mechanisms.
Firstly, by introducing hyaluronic acid into the skin, deep skin hydration is improved tremendously and this brings about smoother, more luminous and dewy skin. Skin is noticeably firmer and elastic and fine lines and wrinkles are erased for a more gentle and youthful look.
Secondly, Skinboosters have the added benefit of stimulating new collagen formation in the skin. This also helps to replace collagen levels in our skin which also depletes as we age. This collagen stimulating effect gives additional anti-aging benefits to the skin with Skinbooster injections.
Skinboosters treatments can be thought of a skin filler treatment where tiny, micro-injections of hyaluronic acid are placed under the skin to give long lasting hydration. Hyaluronic acid is a water loving molecule that has the ability to attract water molecules 100-200x its weight to dramatically improve skin’s hydration from within. With improved skin hydration and new collagen formation in the skin, skin looks and feels younger.
Skinboosters rejuvenate skin and reverse signs of aging in the skin by introducing hyaluronic acid deep into the skin. Skinboosters also reduce the depth of depressed acne scars by plumping up these scars. Some of the benefits of Skinboosters are:
Skinboosters introduce hyaluronic acid deep into your skin. Hyaluronic acid draws water to the skin and this enhances deep skin hydration from within, vastly improving skin texture, firmness and elasticity and radiance. At the same time, Skinboosters regenerate collagen in the skin and reverses signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles.
These tiny drops of hyaluronic acid are placed under skin either using a Skinbooster injector gun or manually using fine needles by hand.
Almost anyone can benefit from Skinboosters. Older patients who wish to treat signs of aging in their skin and younger patients who want a more dewy, radiant and brighter skin or treat depressed acne scars are good candidates for Skinboosters.
The face is numbed prior to starting Skinboosters so pain, if at all, is very minimal.
There may be transient skin redness, swelling and bruising- however, these are all reversible within a few days. You are able to return back to your work and daily activities after your Skinbooster treatment.
For best results, serial monthly Skinbooster injections for three months is advised. Thereafter, you can look at maintenance of your skin’s hyaluronic acid and collagen levels every 6 or 12 months.
Skinboosters is a very safe treatment that is suitable for most people. You might experience mild swelling, bruising and fine needle marks. These reactions are transient and reversible. There might also be small bumps on the skin due to the placement of these small droplets of hyaluronic acid under the skin. These are also transient and your skin will normalise.
