Skin boosters are an injectable treatment, known as ‘the injectable glow’, which aims to refine the look of the skin, improving a range of concerns, including: skin laxity, fine lines and wrinkles, crepey skin and an uneven texture. This treatment can be used on the face, neck, chest, hands and inner arms and work by supporting the internal structure of the skin. The skin is remodelled rather than artificially plumped to provide natural volume and hydration to the skin.
The skin loses its volume and elasticity as collagen and elastin depletes from the skin. This can give a tired look to the face and other areas of the body, as features lose definition and the skin appears loose. A consultation at Nassif MedSpa will recommend skin boosters according to the results of a thorough skin and facial analysis with a view to achieve a complexion that is brighter and more volumized.
Profhilo and Viscoderm Hydrobooster are the skin boosters that are used at Nassif MedSpa. A very fine needle is used to administer this injectable treatment, which contains hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring product found within the skin. The hyaluronic acid binds with water to produce natural volume and hydration, whilst also helping to support and ‘cushion’ collagen and elastin fibres. Not only does this treatment stimulate collagen, it tightens, lifts, hydrates and improves tone.
Particularly effective on the forehead, around the eyes and mouth area, skin boosters usually require 2 treatments, 4 weeks apart. The results will be visible around 4 weeks after the treatment course when the skin will appear, firmer, brighter and tighter. This treatment can be successful as a stand alone procedure or can support the results of other rejuvenating treatments.
