SkinBoosters – That Red Carpet Glow

SkinBoosters – A Saphira practitioner favourite

It is not an exaggeration to say that SkinBoosters have taken the world by storm. When we ask client’s what they want from a treatment, skin quality, global volume, skin luminosity and a fresh, natural skin rejuvenation is key. SkinBooster treatments deliver on all of these performance indicators. SkinBooster “hydration injections” is a very accurate description of this skin rejuvenation treatment but it’s so much more than that.

Seems too good to be true, but rest assured it is based on science. Like all treatments, there are pros and cons, and there are things it can and cannot do. Here’s what you need to know.

What are SkinBoosters?

SkinBoosters is a filler treatment which improves skin hydration, firmness and luminosity, through micro-injections in a precise layer of the skin using a very soft hyaluronic acid filler.

How are SkinBoosters different from other fillers?

Fillers typically work by filling up volume deficiencies and lifting the skin. Some are placed in the deeper layers of the skin and these products are more cross linked and firm. This family of fillers are great for sculpting cheeks, chins, lip volume, lip boarders, jaw lines and areas where we want to provide a support structure. SkinBoosters, on the other hand, are extremely soft. Instead of exerting mechanical effects, they work via its biochemical properties.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar molecule in our skin. It gives our skin the plumpness and hydration associated with youthful, healthy skin. However, over time, our skin loses collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, and it becomes drier, rougher and less elastic.

SkinBoosters reverse the skin ageing process by reintroducing hyaluronic acid into the skin. Once injected, the water-loving hyaluronic acid molecules start to absorb water up to 200 times its weight and swell, bringing about profound hydration to the skin from inside out. With dramatically improved hydration, the skin looks plumper, brighter, and more youthful.

At the same time, the SkinBoosters start to stimulate collagen production once injected, giving long term, anti-ageing effects.

What are the benefits of SkinBoosters?

SkinBoosters are excellent for improving skin texture and tone. Unknown to most, SkinBoosters also improve acne scars by plumping and volumising the underlying tissue. The benefits of the treatment include:

  • Smoother skin
  • Improvement in fine lines and wrinkles
  • Firmer skin
  • Brighter, more luminous skin
  • Better skin hydration
  • Improvement in acne scars
