Skin Boosters Guide: What Are Skin Boosters?

29th November 2023

Skin boosters are a quick and easy cosmetic treatment that requires minimal downtime and gives your skin ever-expanding benefits. It is an effective treatment which boosts the skin, giving it a rejuvenated look by reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Continue reading to learn more about skin boosters, their benefits, and why you should consider starting this treatment. 

What are Skin Boosters?

Skin boosters are liquid injections which contain hyaluronic acid and other skin-enriching ingredients such as vitamins, peptides and amino acids. Hyaluronic acid plays a crucial role in maintaining the hydration of skin tissues, ensuring the healthy existence of other structures, including elastin and collagen. This helps to plump up the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

How Do Skin Boosters Work?

Skin boosters are injected into the skin, where the hyaluronic acid attracts and binds to water molecules, resulting in improved skin hydration levels and reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

Where Can Skin Boosters Be Applied?

Skin boosters can be used in all areas of the face, neck, and back of hands. There are many different types and brands of skin boosters offering a multitude of benefits, with some targeting specific concerns such as dark circles under the eyes.

Benefits of Skin Boosters

Skin boosters offer a range of benefits for those looking to improve the appearance of their skin. Here are some of the key benefits of skin boosters:

The Process of Skin Boosters

1. Consultation 

At this stage, you will meet with one of our practitioners and discuss your skin goals, and which skin booster would best suit your skin type. 

2. Preparation Before The Procedure

On the day of your procedure, make sure that you arrive make up free. Next, one of our practitioners will apply numbing cream to the areas where the skin booster will be applied. This will help ease any discomfort you may have during the procedure. 

3. The Procedure

One of our practitioners will inject a series of the skin booster into the targeted areas. The natural substances will penetrate the skin’s innermost layers to revitalise it from within.

4. Aftercare

After your appointment, you may experience minor redness, bruising and swelling at the injection site. It is essential to ensure that you regularly sanitise your hands in case you touch the area to avoid spreading bacteria to the injection sites. Also, avoid excessive heat from a sauna, sunbed, or steam room for 24-48 hours after the treatment. 

Skin Booster Products We Use 

Our skin boosters are an effective way to improve your skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. During your consultation, we will discuss which skin booster best suits your unique skin concerns and goals.

 

Below are some skin booster products we use to help our clients achieve their desired results. Each product is made with high-quality ingredients designed to target specific skin concerns.

Seventy Hyal 2000 

Seventy Hyal is a highly effective bio-stimulating skin booster specifically designed to improve the levels of hydration within the skin, resulting in a glowing, fresh-looking complexion. It contains a solution of sterile, pyrogen-free, and hyaluronate acid and works by treating the physiological depletion of Hyaluronic Acid via the infiltration of high molecular weight of HA back into the skin.

Jalupro

Jalupro is a skin booster which contains amino acids and hyaluronate acid. These ingredients are highly effective in plumping and restoring youthfulness to the skin. Jalupro works by stimulating the fibroblasts in the skin to produce collagen and elastin, restoring elasticity and volume to the skin. 

SuneKos

SuneKos is an injectable skin booster treatment that contains a potent blend of amino acids and hyaluronic acid. Both of these ingredients are essential for maintaining healthy and hydrated skin. When injected into the skin, SuneKos works by stimulating the fibroblasts, which are the cells responsible for producing collagen and elastin. This process encourages the skin to naturally produce a complete mix of these two essential proteins, resulting in smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin.

Skin Boosters FAQs

Who Can Benefit From Skin Boosters?

Skin boosters benefit a wide range of individuals looking to improve their skin’s appearance. They are particularly beneficial for those experiencing signs of ageing, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and dull-looking skin. They are not only great for ageing skin but are hugely beneficial for younger skin also. However, it is worth knowing that skin boosters are only suitable for individuals over 18.

How Quickly Will I See Results From Skin Boosters?

The results of skin boosters can vary from person to person and can depend on factors such as the type of skin booster used, the amount of product used, and the individual’s skin condition.

In general, some people may start seeing results from skin boosters immediately after treatment, with skin hydration, texture, and radiance improvements. However, most skin booster treatments require a series of sessions spaced out over a few weeks for optimal results.

How Many Sessions Will I Require?

It is usually recommended that you have between 2-3 sessions of skin boosters, with a few weeks in between, for optimum results. However, this may vary from person to person, and this will be discussed with a practitioner.

We recommend that if you want skin boosters before any special occasions, you consider how long it takes to complete the course of treatments. This will ensure your skin is glowing before your special occasion. 

How Long Do Skin Boosters Last?

The longevity of skin-boosting treatments varies, depending on the brand and the quality of your skin, but they typically last six to twelve months at a minimum. You can enhance the life of a skin booster treatment by avoiding sunbeds and using medical-grade skincare products.

What Is The Recovery Like After Skin Boosters?

The recovery after skin boosters is typically minimal, with most individuals able to resume their normal activities immediately following the procedure. However, you may experience minor swelling, redness, lumps and bruising at the injection site. After two weeks, any inflammatory response should have subsided, and the product will be integrated into the skin.

Are Skin Booster Treatments Painful?

Skin boosters are not painful, but you may feel mild discomfort during the procedure. However, to reduce the discomfort, our practitioner will apply numbing cream to the areas being treated.

Are Skin Boosters The Same as Fillers?

Skin boosters differ from dermal fillers as fillers add volume to areas such as lips, cheeks, and jawline. Skin boosters do not create volume but, instead, give your skin the ability and support to create volume by encouraging the production of new collagen.
