It does not matter what your skin type, age, gender, or treatment plan; skin boosters can always help keep you looking refreshed. Skin boosters naturally integrate into the skin to improve smoothness, elasticity, and appearance. Unlike what most think, skin boosters can be used in the face, lips, neck, décolletage, and the back of the hands.

The skin boosters’ treatment is a simple one. It involves making a few micro-injections into the skin of the target area with a tiny needle. Skin boosters contain a unique solution of stabilized hyaluronic acid (HA) and vitamins to plump and hydrate the skin. The hyaluronic acid in these injections is not like the one in your skincare. That is because skin boosters use stabilized HA that is non cross-linked to resemble natural HA, which lasts for months instead of days, and doesn’t volumize.

Skin boosters aim to promote the skin’s natural glow and radiance. This is a relatively new treatment method that has become much more popular over the last few years. It is more fit for patients who want to look fresh and natural with anti-aging treatments.

Unlike other non-surgical skin treatments, skin boosters don’t freeze features or stop muscle movements (like BOTOX®). It also does not deliver exaggerated or over-inflated results as dermal fillers do when done in the wrong way. However, skin boosters are able to smooth out lines and wrinkles and add subtle volume by gently plumping the skin.

The most common uses of skin boosters are for facial rejuvenation. However, this is a multipurpose treatment that can treat many different skin areas, e.g., neck, décolletage, and hands. In addition, they are safe for all skin types, ages, and genders.

How Skin Boosters Work

Skin booster injections consist of a soft, gel-like substance called Hyaluronic Acid (HA). This substance naturally occurs in the skin and holds incredible amounts of moisture. However, it also diminishes with age which is the cause behind the skin appearing lined or loose with a dryer texture as one grows older.

Skin boosters are basically microinjections of deeply hydrating hyaluronic acid, which restores the skin’s moister and, therefore, improves its elasticity, firmness, and radiance.

The difference between skin boosters and applying moisturizers is that skin boosters’ injections can penetrate the skin much deeper and last longer.

Benefits of Skin Boosters

There are numerous benefits that can come from using skin boosters. First, it is an easy, fast procedure with minimal pain and limited side effects. Also, the procedure can also be done a few days before important events as it takes no time and it has zero downtime. However, depending on the type of treatment chosen, here are the potential benefits that you might notice:

  • More radiant and shiny complexion.
  • Healthier skin tone.
  • Reduction in visible fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Tighter, lifted skin.
  • Better, deeper hydration.
  • Firmer skin texture.
  • Promotes skin nourishment.
  • Softer skin with more elasticity.
  • Improves skin texture, quality, and appearance.
  • Reduction in patchy pigmentation.

The nature of skin boosters makes them ideal for use in combination with other treatments, providing a complete boost to the skin, which works very well alongside more focused treatments.

Areas that Can Be Treated Using Skin Boosters

Skin booster injections are safe procedures that can be applied to different parts of your body. Here are the most common parts that people treat using skin boosters:

  • Face: If your face has been looking dull, dry, or wrinkly lately, skin boosters can rejuvenate the glow and nourishment in your face.
  • Sun-damaged or scarred skin: Skin boosters can be used to treat previously damaged skin through sun damage, acne, or scarring.
  • Around the eye area: Skin boosters are used around the eye area to reduce dark circles and fine lines, resulting in a much healthier, youthful appearance.
  • Neck and décolletage: Skin boosters are injected into the skin under the chin, in the neck, and décolletage, which creates an intensely hydrated and moisturized effect which, in turn, helps lift the skin and smooth out fine wrinkles.
  • Hands: Skin boosters are designed to rescue dehydrated or aging hands.

The procedure is quite simple and does not take much time to be completed. Here are the steps to the skin boosters injections:

  1. Your dermatologist will apply topical anesthesia.
  2. After that, your dermatologist will inject the skin booster into the treated area.
