- Rough or uneven skin
- Loss of plumpness and radiance of hydrated skin
- Loss of elasticity in skin
- Tired worn down looking skin
- Skin imperfections such as acne scars and photo damage
Dull, tired skin is a common concern. From pollution to diet to stress, modern life can take a toll on your skin, damaging its soft, radiant appearance.
Skin boosters are generally hyaluronic acid-based solutions that are injected into the skin to improve the appearance of the skin on your face, neck, décolletage and hands. They provide optimal results due to their ability to work from the inside out, awakening cells within the ‘power centre’ of your skin to replenish, revive and rejuvenate. They offer improvements to the skin condition, gradually increasing elasticity, improving roughness and reducing the appearance of fine lines and other imperfections such as acne scars.
Hyaluronic acid is used as it is a potent natural moisturising factor naturally found in skin, muscle and joints. It has the ability to draw 1000 times its own weight in water into the skin makes it ideal for binding and retaining water molecules, providing the very best innate moisturisation.
The latest advancement in injectable technology, these skin boosters use a hyaluronic acid solution that is clinically proven to stimulate new collagen formation and increase elastin levels that have been depleted due to age or environmental factors. It has the added bonus of diminishing fine lines and improving glow and hydrating skin from within to leave skin looking fresh and radiant.
The injections also change the light refractive properties of the skin to create a more even complexion. So, if you have fine lines and wrinkles these are visibly diminished, and if your skin is dehydrated, then the hyaluronic acid will help to hold water in the skin making it look far dewier and delivering a long-lasting serum effect, without the serum.
Summary Of Your Treatment
Most frequent questions and answers
The contrast between skin boosters and mesotherapy lies in the additional components of the mesotherapy cocktails, which can include vitamins, minerals, hormones, amino acids, antioxidants and plant extracts. In this way, mesotherapy allows for the treatment of a wider range of conditions such as pigmentation, scars, cellulite, alopecia, and stretch marks, along with improving rough, dull, lacklustre skin. Mesotherapy cocktails are injected into the middle layer (mesoderm) of the skin, while skin boosters plump and hydrate from just below the surface- the injections are shallower.
In contrast to native, non-stabilized HA molecules used in mesotherapy, the cross-linked, softer HA in skin boosters lasts much longer and results in more pronounced clinical improvements in areas where skin has lost plumpness.
Each treatment involves a series of hydrating micro-injections of long lasting stabilised hyaluronic acid gel to deliver immediate and lasting hydration and plumpness to the skin. This hyaluronic acid is soft and absorbs water and brings deep skin hydration to the treated areas, giving it improved firmness, elasticity and smoothness. This manifests outwardly as a wonderful, healthy radiance. The micro injuries created also stimulate collagen formation through the natural skin repair process thus lifting scars further.
After a full assessment and diagnosis is made, a treatment plan will be made for you tailored to the specific problem at hand. The area treated is cleaned and numbed with numbing cream for about 30 minutes. An expertly designed injection technique that uses very fine micro needles to inject micro droplets all over the treatment area. The areas treated are then massaged with a firm pressure to ensure there are no palpable nodules or lumps.
