Skin boosters are injections of products into the skin superficially for the purpose of hydrating and improving skin quality. From all the skin booster injections in the market, the popular ones are hyaluronic acids (HLA), Polynucleotides (PN), Polydeoxyribonucleotides (PDRN), Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), growth factors and cytokines.
Skin booster injections can come in many brands and formulations, but most of them work to achieve a similar goal which is to activate the fibroblasts promoting new collagen and elastin formation under the skin. The result is healthy, glowing and plump skin.
Skin booster is usually introduced via the micro-injections method, though there are modified methods suitable for individuals with different pain tolerance levels and downtime.
This treatment is suitable for all patients but highly recommended for patients who want to increase the degree of hydration in their skin.
- Allergy to any ingredient in the skin booster
Bear in mind that a skin booster treatment is not intended to fill lines or wrinkles. It is intended to hydrate the skin and promote long term formation of new collagen and elastin. Increased collagen helps firm the skin and give a more dewy appearance.
Skin booster also works well in combination with other modalities such as laser or energy-based devices treatments.
