Say goodbye to dull skin and hello to radiance

Skin Boosters

Did you know that skin boosters are a popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment designed to rejuvenate and revitalise the skin? Also known as injectable moisturizers or skin hydrators, skin boosters work by replenishing the skin’s natural hydration levels and improving its overall texture and tone. Skin boosters are made up of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to maintain skin elasticity and hydration. When injected into the skin, the hyaluronic acid molecules attract and hold water, plumping up the skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of ageing. Skin boosters are typically injected into the skin using a fine needle or cannula. The treatment is relatively quick and usually takes around 15minutes to complete. The results of skin boosters can last for several months, depending on the individual’s skin type and the specific product used.
Skin boosters are a versatile treatment that can be used on various areas of the face, including the cheeks, chin, under-eye area, and lips. They can also be used to improve the appearance of the neck, décolletage, and hands. Overall, skin boosters are a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of the skin without the need for surgery.

How It Works

At My London Skin Clinic, we use the BEST market leading FDA Approved Skin Boosters, such as Allergan’s Juvéderm Volite, Profhilo and Restalyne’s Skin Boosters.

- Profhilo

Unlike traditional fillers that are injected into specific areas of the face to add volume, Profhilo is injected into the skin in a series of tiny injections. Once injected, it spreads throughout the skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential proteins for maintaining skin structure and elasticity.
Profhilo is often used to address the signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of volume and elasticity. It is particularly effective for those who have thinning or crepey skin, as it can help to improve skin texture and firmness.
One of the key benefits of Profhilo is that it has a unique hybrid effect, combining the benefits of both a dermal filler and a skin booster. It provides long-lasting hydration and improved skin texture and tone, while also adding subtle volume to the treated area.
Profhilo treatments typically involve two sessions spaced four weeks apart, with results lasting for around six months. However, the treatment can be repeated as necessary to maintain the desired results.
As with any medical treatment, it’s important to consult with a qualified and experienced medical professional to determine if Profhilo is the right treatment for you

- Restalyne Skin Boosters

Restylane Skin boosters are injected using a series of tiny injections in the areas of the skin that need improvement. The treatment is usually performed on the face, neck, and hands, and can help to address a variety of skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, and dry, dull-looking skin.
The hyaluronic acid used in Restylane Skin Booster is a non-animal-derived and biodegradable substance that is similar to the hyaluronic acid naturally found in the skin. This means that the treatment is generally well-tolerated by the body, and the risk of allergic reactions is low.
Restylane Skin Boosters work by boosting the skin’s hydration levels, which in turn helps to improve its overall texture and appearance. The treatment can help to restore a youthful glow to the skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve skin firmness and elasticity.
The results of Restylane Skin Boosters treatment can last for several months, depending on the individual’s skin type and the specific product used. However, it’s important to note that the treatment is not permanent and will need to be repeated to maintain the desired results.

- Juvéderm Volite

One of the key benefits of Juvéderm Volite is that it has been clinically proven to provide long-lasting hydration to the skin, with results lasting for up to 9 months after just one treatment. This makes it an effective option for those looking to improve the overall quality and appearance of their skin.
In addition to improving skin hydration, Juvéderm Volite can also help to stimulate collagen production in the skin. Collagen is an essential protein that provides support and structure to the skin, and its production naturally decreases as we age. By stimulating collagen production, Juvéderm Volite can help to improve skin firmness and elasticity, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Consultation and Treatment

Our Consultant Doctors will discuss your concerns and after assessing your face the best management plan will be made bespoke for you. The type of Skin Booster used on your skin will be discussed with you after a full skin consultation, and many factors will be taken into consideration, such as the current skin tone, quality, elasticity and texture.

What to Expect During/After Treatment

During the treatment, a topical anaesthetic may be applied to the skin to minimise discomfort. The skin booster product is then injected into the skin in a series of tiny injections, usually in a grid pattern to ensure even coverage. The number of injections required will depend on the area being treated and the specific product being used.
After the treatment, it’s common to experience some mild swelling, redness, and rarely bruising at the injection sites. This is usually temporary and should resolve within a few days to a week. You may also feel some tightness or mild discomfort in the treated area, but this should also improve within a few days.
It’s important to avoid touching or rubbing the treated area immediately after the procedure to minimise the risk of infection or irritation. You should also avoid exposure to direct sunlight and extreme temperatures for the first 24-48 hours after treatment, as this can further irritate the skin.
In terms of results, you may start to see improvements in skin hydration and texture immediately after the treatment. However, it can take a few weeks to see the full results of the treatment, as the hyaluronic acid molecules continue to attract and hold water in the skin.
The duration of the results can vary depending on the specific product used and individual factors such as skin type and lifestyle habits. Generally, skin booster injections can provide results that last from several months to up to a year or more. The treatment can be repeated as necessary to maintain the desired results.
