Skinboosters are having a moment, and for good reason too!
These magic molecules help hydrate, plump and kickstart collagen synthesis, helping even skin, boost hydration and build the skin from within.
We’re going to shed some light on skinboosters, a game-changer in the quest for youthful, rejuvenated skin. Let's dive into what they are, how they work, and how they can deliver that “lit from within” glow.
Skinboosters, like Profhilo, Seventy Hyal and Jalupro are a secret weapon against skin laxity and dehydration…some of the earliest and pesky signs of ageing.
They contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in your skin, which depletes as we get older. They not only immediately plump and hydrate - hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1000 its weight in water! But they also kickstart cells in your skin to make their own collagen - the skin’s natural scaffolding.
Having skin with great scaffolding improves its elasticity and firmness. Essentially, they're a way of collagen banking, ensuring a radiant, youthful appearance.
What are they good for?
Skinboosters are a really versatile treatment, targeting skin laxity, fine lines, wrinkles, and even acne scars. They work wonders on improving skin texture and overall radiance, making them a stellar alternative to traditional fillers.
They can be used on the face, neck, arms, tummy, knees, elbows…basically, anywhere you have skin that could do with a dose of hydration and plumping.
What happens during a treatment?
During a skinbooster treatment, tiny blebs of hyaluronic acid will be injected into the treatment area just beneath the surface of the skin. It's a quick and relatively painless process. Patients typically say it feels like a slight pinch followed by a feeling of pressure. Numbing cream can be applied if necessary. The whole treatment is often completed within 30-45 minutes and has minimal downtime.
After the initial treatment, for best results, you will need to return for a second session 4 weeks later. To maintain results, you should have treatment every 4-6 months.
How much do skin boosters cost?
Skinboosters cost from around £200 per session.
What are the risks?
While skinboosters are considered safe, there can be some common side effects such as temporary redness or swelling - you may look like you’ve got insect stings for a few hours post-treatment. As with all injectable treatments, there’s a risk of bruising.
It’s important that you have any injectable treatments with a qualified, trained and insured healthcare professional. You can find a skinboosting pro at Glowday.com
