Skin Boosters are micro-injections of dermal fillers in the skin. They are very fine dermal fillers that are injected into the skin improve skin quality and to hydrate. This type of dermal filler can be injected over areas of the face, neck, and hands to increase the skin’s hydration quality. The result is healthy-looking, glowing and plump skin.
Benefits of the skin booster treatment:
- Dermal fillers used are very fluid, so the final result is smooth.
- With the production of new collagen and elastin, patients can expect firmer and more youthful skin.
- Suitable for most patients and skin types.
- Gold standard skin hydrator for radiant and glowing skin.
The dermal fillers that are used in skin booster treatments are non-cross-linked fillers. Cross-links are bonds between the chains of molecules that form the dermal filler. Dermal fillers without cross-linking are very fluid and less viscous and may be suited to skin injections. Unlike cross-linked fillers, they produce no lift. Therefore, they also produce no lumping in the final result (although there may be some temporary small lumps visible initially after the treatment). The fillers are injected into the papillary dermis where fibroblasts are housed. Fibroblast stimulation by injection of the filler causes new collagen and elastin formation in the skin. The depth of injection can be modulated by the injecting gun used.
