What are skin boosters?

Skin boosters are becoming an increasingly popular treatment option for those looking to improve lines, wrinkles, laxity, texture, tone, and overall appearance of their skin. In this blog post, we’ll explore what skin boosters are, how they work, and why they’re such a popular choice among patients. We’ll also discuss some of the most common types of skin boosters and what to expect during and after treatment.

What are Skin Boosters?


Skin boosters are injectable treatments that work to improve the hydration and overall health of the skin. They’re typically made up of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to retain moisture and keep the skin looking plump and youthful. Skin boosters are injected into the skin using a fine needle, and can be used on the face, neck, and hands.

How do Skin Boosters Work?


Skin boosters work by injecting hyaluronic acid directly into the skin, where it binds with water molecules and helps to hydrate and plump the skin from the inside out. This can help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, laxity, as well as enhance the overall texture and tone of the skin. Skin boosters can also be used to improve the appearance of acne scars, sun damage, and other types of skin imperfections.

What are the Benefits?


Skin boosters are primarily formulated to deliver deep and long-lasting hydration. Let’s take a look at some of the skin concerns that these injectables can target.

Dryness
Roughness or uneven texture
Fine lines
Eating a healthy, balanced diet

Why are Skin Boosters so Popular?


Skin boosters are a popular choice among patients for several reasons. First and foremost, they’re minimally invasive, meaning they require little to no downtime and have a very low risk of complications. They’re also highly customizable, meaning they can be tailored to each patient’s individual needs and goals. Skin boosters can be used as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other cosmetic treatments, such as skin treatments, Botox or dermal fillers, to achieve a more comprehensive rejuvenation of the skin.

Types of Skin Boosters


There are several different types of skin boosters available on the market today. Some of the most common include:


Profhilo – Profhilo is a skin booster recommended for 30+ that’s made up of a unique hyaluronic acid complex that works to stimulate collagen production and improve skin elasticity. The treatment involves a series of injections, which are administered over the course of two sessions that are usually spaced four weeks apart. Clients say their skin feels smoother, firmer, and more hydrated after treatment. Additionally, the effects of Profhilo can last up to six months or more, depending on the individual.


Seventy Hyal 2000 – is suitable for clients of all skin types, aged 18+, aims to target skin texture and skin laxity for a glowing complexion. The treatment involves a series of 2-3 treatments every 3-4 weeks.


SuneKos – The formula combines Hyaluronic Acid with Amino Acids and is therefore able to regenerate the Extra Cellular Matrix of the skin. The result is plumper skin which is deeply hydrated. SuneKos treatment reduces the appearance of the wrinkles by boosting natural Elastin and Collagen production deep inside your skin. The treatment involves a series of 4 treatments every 2 weeks.

What to Expect During and After Treatment


Skin booster treatment typically takes 30 minutes, depending on the area being treated. Clients may experience some mild discomfort during the injection process, but this is typically well-tolerated. After treatment, clients may experience some mild swelling or redness at the injection site, but this should subside within a few days.


In conclusion, skin boosters are an effective and minimally invasive treatment option for improving the overall health and appearance of the skin. They’re highly customizable and can be tailored to each patient’s individual needs and goals.
