What are Skin Boosters?

Skin Boosters are injectable treatments containing hyaluronic acid or other ingredients that stimulate collagen, and combat elastin. These biostimulator’s help to improve and act as internal moisturisers, hydrating the skin and improving its quality, elasticity, firmness, and radiance by stimulating collagen production. They help to smooth wrinkles, fade scars, and promote long-term skin rejuvenation lasting up to nine months.

The skin boosters we use at Skin Medical are:

Polynucleotides which a small fragments of salmon or trout sperm DNA when injected into the skin, stimulate the formation of collagen elastin and hyaluronic acid. We also use Profhilo which is a which is a hyaluronic acid which holds moisture in the skin to smooth out wrinkle and give a more dewy complexion.


Juvederm Volite

At Skin Medical, we also utilise Juvederm Volite, an innovative skin booster that enhances skin hydration, smoothness, and elasticity. Juvederm Volite is an injectable treatment composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that retains moisture and promotes a plump, youthful appearance. Designed to improve skin quality for up to nine months, Juvederm Volite targets fine lines, wrinkles, and skin texture irregularities, offering a refreshed and radiant complexion. This treatment is suitable for various areas, including the face, neck, décolletage, and hands, providing a comprehensive approach to skin rejuvenation. By integrating Juvederm Volite into our suite of skin boosters, we ensure our clients receive the most advanced and effective solutions for maintaining healthy, vibrant skin.


What is the difference between Skin Boosters and Dermal Fillers?

While both are maybe made of hyaluronic acid, Dermal Fillers restore lost volume, contour, and lift features, injected at a deeper level with a thicker consistency. In contrast, Skin Boosters are more superficial and aimed at hydrating and improving overall skin quality rather than adding volume.
