Skin boosters are injected into the skin to improve skin texture and boost hydration. This is done through micro-injections of dermal fillers. Skin boosters can be used on facial areas, neck and even some parts of the body to enhance skin quality. When injecting into the skin, the filler is formulated with antioxidants and vitamins causing new collagen and elastin to be produced that result in healthy-looking, glowing and plump skin. Improving skin quality (texture, elasticity and firmness) and to reduce dark circles around the eye.
Skin boosters are often mistaken and misidentified as dermal fillers because, like traditional fillers, skin boosters contain Hyaluronic Acid (HA) as their primary ingredient. Fillers basically restore lost volume to your face and plump areas, so that deep-set lines are smoothed. Why is this needed? As we get older our bodies stop producing collagen and elastin, both of which contribute to the youthful look.
Experts argue over when we start losing collagen, but the generally agreed age is 25. Pretty young, right? Your collagen and elastin levels then decline at a rate of about 2% per year. Your body will have stopped producing it altogether by your late twenties. How long they last depends how your body reacts and which hyaluronic acid is used, but most face fillers will last between six and 18 months.
