Skinboosters™ is a technology designed to nourish the skin, to be used on people of all ages. It is micro-injections of hyaluronic acid, specifically created to provide the skin with optimal hydration thanks to NASHA technology. Unlike traditional filling agents that produce their volumizing and restructuring effects, especially in the mid to deep dermis, the tiny particles of Skinboosters™ act more on the surface of the skin, therefore having for effect to capture and moisten, properly hydrate and improve firmness and luster.
By stimulating the fibroblast synthesis, Skinboosters™ activates the production of new collagen and elastin. The micro-injections provide a topping effect in the depth of a specific area. The dermis is therefore provided with a thin layer of hyaluronic acid which moistens the skin allowing for proper hydration. As it is very fluid, this treatment provides a homogeneous result throughout the same part of the body, such as the face, neck, décolleté, hands and even the lips. The skin is plumper, softer, smoother and more radiant.
The purpose of Skinboosters™ is not to fill in wrinkles and fine lines, nor to provide a lifting or reshaping effect. It is designed to hydrate the skin to improve the elasticity and the flexibility, although it may also improve the look of fine lines. This type of treatment works particularly well in combination with other technologies, such as various filling agents, neuromodulators and laser treatments. On younger patients, Skinboosters™ is used to prevent aging, making the skin more toned and delays the onset of first wrinkles. For mature patients, it stimulates a weakened skin and repairs the effects of time on the skin.
Skinboosters™ treatment is considered somewhere between traditional filling agents and mesotherapy. To begin, a treatment of 3 sessions at 4-week interval is suggested. Then, maintenance every 9 to 12 months is recommended.
Process of the treatment
