Skin boosters involve multiple injections of synthetic hyaluronic acid into the upper layers of the dermis to provide extra hydration to the skin. The hyaluronic acid molecules attract and retain water beneath the skin, resulting in a fresher, more dewy appearance.
Profhilo ® is probably the best known skin boosting injectable treatment and is classified as a “bio-stimulator” as it not only improves skin hydration but also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin.
The quality of our skin deteriorates as we age, often becoming increasingly crepey and loose. By stimulating collagen synthesis and elastin, Profhilo improves this appearance and can be effectively used for the face, neck, décolletage and hands as well as upper arms and knees.
The choice of skin booster recommended will depend on area to be treated as well as age of patient and skin quality.
