What are Skin boosters?
Skin boosters are a type of cosmetic injectable treatment designed to improve the texture, hydration, and overall appearance of the skin. They are typically made up of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to keep the skin hydrated and plump.
Skin boosters are injected into the skin and work by adding moisture and volume to the treated area. This can help to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging, as well as enhance overall skin quality and radiance.
Unlike traditional dermal fillers, which are often used to restore volume to specific areas of the face, skin boosters are typically used to treat larger areas of the face, such as the cheeks, under the eyes, or the neck and décolletage.
Skin boosters are a popular treatment option for those looking to improve the overall appearance of their skin without undergoing more invasive procedures such as facelifts or laser resurfacing. They are also a popular choice for younger patients looking to maintain their skin's hydration and vitality over time.
