What are skin boosters?
Dermal fillers are used to correct wrinkles and reshape the contours of the face and lips. Skin boosters are also based on hyaluronic acid and can correct small imperfections and fine lines and help restore the skin’s structure, density, and hydro balance.

- thin and dry facial skin
- mild to moderate signs of aging

They are suitable for treating anyone who wants to improve the condition of their skin and deal with the initial signs of aging, as well as established sun damage. It can also be combined with treatments such as botulinum toxin to relax wrinkles and dermal fillers.
How do skin boosters work?
Skin boosters help provide deep hydration and increase collagen substrate production. Hyaluronic acid can hold water 1000 times its molecular weight, making it the gold standard as an ingredient for hydrating the skin.
Hyaluronic acid helps not only to improve skin hydration but also to:
- the production of collagen in the skin
- skin elasticity
- providing antioxidants on site
- accelerate the wound healing process
- eduction of inflammation
Hyaluronic acid is introduced into the skin through skin boosters with precise injections or with an injection device after analgesia with a topical cream. The boosters act as reservoirs for water under the skin, absorbing and retaining moisture and helping to instantly hydrate. This increase in skin hydration results in visibly thicker, supple and radiant skin.
