Skinbooster is a unique hyaluronic acid-based skin enhancer which hydrates your skin, restores its density, and gives your skin a youthful glow. It offers a subtle, yet impressive change in the skin’s elasticity and plumpness over a 4 week period.
The Skinbooster injection, otherwise known as hyaluronic acid injection, is suitable for your face, neck, and neckline. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body, and its main role is to attract water. After the hyaluronic acid has been injected into the skin, the gel binds with water, therefore hydrating the skin to maintain a firm and healthy appearance.
You may see some results immediately however the effect builds up gradually and subtly. You will see the full effect of your treatment within 2-4 weeks from the day of your session.
The results, which are natural yet noticeable, can last up to 6 months, or longer. Each patient is different, therefore, results will vary.
Hyaluronic acid injections are performed with a micro-puncture technique that involves injecting very small amounts of hyaluronic acid into the mid to deep dermis of the skin, between 1-2 centimetres apart. Once they are injected, the hyaluronic acid is distributed evenly and smoothly into the skin.
During the treatment you may feel minor discomfort, and you can use a local anaesthetic to numb the area for a more comfortable treatment. Each session can take around 30-45 minutes.
Though both products are made from hyaluronic acid, Skinbooster is only designed to hydrate and plump without structuring or shaping your skin. In comparison, dermal fillers are designed to shape and proportion your face by enhancing facial features.
