What are Skin Boosters?
Skin boosters are injectables that improve skin texture, elasticity, hydration and overall appearance. Treatment involves injecting hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a soft, gel-like substance under the skin, which improves the skin’s elasticity, firmness and radiance giving an overall skin quality. Skin boosters are often called skin quality as they improve and enhance the overall quality and health of the skin.
Below we will discuss the benefits of skin booster injections, cost of skin boosters, what to expect from treatment with a skin booster video as well as skin booster before and after.
What do Skin Boosters do?
Skin Boosters increase the levels of hydration in the skin and stimulate the production of collagen, improving fine lines and wrinkles, producing firmer and younger looking skin.
Another key benefit of skin boosters is that they are particularly good at improving hydration and can be used to treat many different skin areas and skin types. Most common areas are the face followed by the neck, chest and the hands. In contrast to fillers, Skin Boosters help improve collagen and elastin.
Do Skin Boosters work?
In Short, YES! They work brilliantly to target dryness, roughness and fine lines and improve skin tone and texture. However, for best results two sessions per year for maintenance to ensure maximum results and hydration.
How Skin Boosters Work
Skin booster injections are a soft, gel-like substance called Hyaluronic Acid (HA). This is a substance that occurs naturally in the skin and holds incredible amounts of moisture. However, HA depletes with many factors including age, sun damage, genetics, smoking and environmental factors which is what causes skin to become dry and dehydrated.
Microinjections of hyaluronic acid restores the moisture in the skin, which improves its elasticity, firmness and radiance.
Skin Boosters are injected using microdroplet or mesotherapy technique of tiny injections. This process of delivering skin boosters also triggers the skin’s own repair resulting in collagen production and improved skin elasticity.

What is the difference between Skin Boosters and Dermal Fillers?
The main difference between skin boosters and dermal fillers is lift and longevity. Skin boosters add hydration, glow and restore elastin while dermal fillers add volume and soften lines to restore a more youthful appearance.
Both treatments use key ingredient of hyaluronic acid and are injected under the skin using a needle. Dermal fillers can last anywhere from 9 to 12 months while Skin boosters will last up to 6 months and will need more regular maintenance.
