With the winter fully upon us many patients are asking what can be done to improve skin
texture. It is important to acknowledged that you might need to add either additional skin
care products to your regime during the cold winter months when the weather and household heating take its toll on our skin. If you would like to discuss which products might
help please contact us.
One strategy that can be used at this time of year are skin boosters, sometimes called
injectable moisturisers. 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.
While hydrating facials can be an option for patients who prefer to steer away from
injectables of any description, skin boosters are a treatment option suitable for both men
and women who suffer with - dry skin, oily skin, matured skin or combination skin.
Unlike traditional dermal fillers skin boosters are not injected beneath the skin to volumize
or shape the face. Instead, they are very fine dermal fillers that are injected into the skin to
hydrate and improve skin quality. This type of dermal filler can be injected over large
treatment areas of the face, neck, and hands to increase the skin’s hydration quality.
Benefits of skin boosters include:
Enhanced tissue regeneration
Balanced skin moisture barrier
Increased collagen and elastin production
Smoother, radiant skin texture
