Skin boosters are related to dermal fillers in terms of what they are made of, the difference with skin boosters compared with dermal fillers is that they are not structural, ie they only improve the skin, rather than improve the supporting structures of the face.

Aging of the skin

Over time, levels of the naturally occurring substance responsible for maintaining skin hydration, h********* a***, reduce.

H********* acid is a moisture binding substance in the skin, giving the skin firmness, plumpness and elasticity. It helps prevent lines wrinkles and fold forming. Moisturising the surface of the skin with creams cannot replace the h********** a*** loss which is occurring over time.

The solution is to restore the skins natural hydration where the loss is occurring.

What are skin boosters?

Skin boosters replace the body’s h********* a*** and rejuvenate the skin from the inside, it restores the skins hydrobalance, improves the elasticity and skin structure. Creating a youthful luster and glow

What is the procedure for skin booster injection?

The patient has consultation and photos and signs a consent form.

For skinbooster injection into the face, a cannula is most often used. A small injection of local anaesthetic is given in 4 areas on the face (2 at each hairline and 2 at the jawline) a fine needle then creates a hole through which the cannula can enter. The skin booster is injected through the cannula

Pain relief during treatment

A numbing cream (eg EMLA or LMX ) may be applied to the area prior to the treatment (45 minutes prior is ideal) Glad wrap may be used over the numbing cream to increase its effect.

If a cannula is used, local anaesthetic is used prior to the cannula being introduced into the skin

There is local anaesthetic in the dermal filler

Ice is always used to decrease pain and to reduce the risk of bruising.

Very rarely patients will use Penthrox for skin boosters

Nitrous oxide (happy gas) is available for patients to use

How will I look immediately after the skin booster injections?

There will be redness and swelling

The skin around the 4 entry points for the cannula may be white due to local anaesthetic.

in particular;

* Those with tired and dry thin skin, lack of skin tension

* Those patients with signs of skin aging

* Those who want the most natural looking results

* Those who are frightened of dermal fillers because or are already happy with their structure, but still want to improve their skin. These patient will be very suitable for skin boosters

Side effects risks of skin boosters

Bruising occurs in a significant number of cases.

Swelling in the injection area will occur. This may last for 5 days

Infection is a very rare complication, but always a possibility when the needle goes into the skin.

Necrosis (blood vessel being blocked, interfering with blood supply to the skin) is very rare. This could lead to scarring
