Skin boosters are dermal fillers designed to be injected just beneath the surface of the skin. The skin booster will help the body to produce skin hydration and give a healthy glow.
Skin boosters are different from regular dermal fillers. Regular dermal fillers are injected beneath the skin to create volume and shape to the face. Where skin boosters are injection into the skin. Skin boosters can be injected into various areas of the body. But most commonly face, neck, chest, and hands.
The skin boosters used are very fluid to make the final result smooth and will help the body produce collagen and elastin. The result is firmer and more youthful skin.
The treatment is suitable for most patients and skin types. Not recommended for patients with acne.
Before the treatment the doctor will apply anesthetic cream to reduce discomfort during the treatment. The skin booster is injected in the skin by a needle in various areas. The effects of the treatment is more elasticity and improved skin structure.
You will be able to see a difference after only one treatment, however 3 treatments are recommended with a 4 week interval between each treatment. This treatment will not stop the aging of the skin, hence, we highly recommend maintenance 2 -3 times per year for the best results.
Side effects & after-care
No real after care is needed after injections of skin boosters. We do recommend staying out of the sun the first 24-48 hours and using a sunscreen with minimum SPF30. Side effects are rare but some redness, bruising, and lumpiness can occur around the injected areas. This will go away after a day or two.
