Skin boosters are essentially vitalizing dermal fillers that revitalize the skin, improving its appearance, texture and slows down the ageing process from within. The treatment involves hydrating microinjections of a soft, gel-like substance called Hyaluronic Acid (HA) into the skin, which improves the skin’s elasticity, firmness and radiance.
Skin boosters increase the levels of hyaluronic acid in the skin and also stimulates the production of collagen, which in turn improves fine lines and wrinkles, producing firmer skin. Skin boosters can be used to treat many different skin areas. The most common is the face, followed by the neck, décolletage and dorsum of the hands.
HOW IT WORKS
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.
A course of few treatments a year is recommended to maintain the result.
At The Pimlico Clinic, we offer the following skin booster treatments:
This is a miracle skin booster. Hailed as a bioremodeling innovation, Profhilo features the highest level of concentrated Hyaluronic Acid on the market. It stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, key proteins for full, smooth, wrinkle-free skin. Elastin fibres become more susceptible to wear-and-tear as we age and the production of collagen naturally slows down, so this simple procedure can not only help to slow down the signs of ageing, but help to protect against it too.
Two Treatments a year, one month apart are recommended for best results.
SuneKos 200 Skin Booster (eye area)
Is an injectable treatment that is entirely different to dermal fillers. This treatment uses a patented formula which combines amino acids with hyaluronic acid. The amino acids are essential for the creation of healthy skin and promote the body’s own production of collagen and elastin. This process rebuilds the dermal layers of the skin and restores the natural youthful look by tightening the area, improving the skin hydration and texture and plumping wrinkles and lines out. So not only does it dramatically reduce the signs of ageing, the results look completely natural too. The skin under the eyes is left looking smooth, hydrated and glowing.
Four sessions are recommended, 10 days apart from each other.
Toskani TKN HA 3 (targeted areas)
TKN HA 3 Skin Booster for bio revitalisation by Toskani
TKN HA 3 is a second generation non-cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid skin booster
Hyaluronic Acid is a very versatile molecule which can hold up to 1000 times its own molecular weight in water which makes it ideal for adding hydration to the skin. This results in a plumper, more youthful looking complexion. It also stimulates collagen and elastin production within the skin which are the building blocks of the skin giving it more elasticity. Finally it helps to nourish the skin & give it more vitality.
This skin booster is particularly indicated to target specific areas of dehydration, where the skin looks dry and lost volume.
Three sessions are recommended, one month apart.
Anyone looking for improving the skin elasticity, address large pores, reduction in fine lines, appearance of wrinkles, correction of skin affected by sun damage or smoking can benefit from skinboosters. It works at various levels of the skin. It enhances the radiance and hydration in the superficial layer of the skin. Working at the middle level, it reduces wrinkles. The collagen production is stimulated by its effects in the deeper layer of the skin.
I like to call it a non-structural physiological filler as its effect is based on stimulation of one’s own skin elasticity mechanism along with attracting water and making the skin plump. Unlike the commonly understood filler it does not give volume. Hence it is not an alternative to volumizing fillers.
There is some swelling from the product immediately after the treatment. It goes down in the next 24-48 hours or earlier as the product incorporates into the skin. Mild bruising may be a possibility that can be covered with concealing cosmetics. I always have a detailed discussion about the aftercare and what to expect with our patients.
