Experiencing Aging Skin?

skin boosters renew skin cells

As we age, our skin loses its ability to properly maintain skin moisture level, causing dryness & dehydration. This can then lead to signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture.


There are several factors that contribute to this:

  • Decreased Hyaluronic Acid – A naturally occurring substance produced by our body that helps bind water molecules to our skin’s surface.
  • Thinning of the Skin – Decreased collagen and elastin production leads to thinner skin, which has a reduced capacity to retain moisture.
  • Impaired Barrier Function – Our natural skin barrier loses effectiveness as we age.
  • Environmental Factors – Harsh weather conditions, air pollution and sun exposure can further deplete moisture levels of surface skin cells

What are Skin Boosters?

skin boosters vs dermal fillers

Specifically designed to improve skin hydration and overall skin quality, skin boosters primarily consist of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the skin.

Unlike traditional dermal fillers, which are used to restore volume or fill in wrinkles, skin boosters are primarily focused on improving skin hydration. The hyaluronic acid molecules attract and retain water, enabling deep skin hydration and improving skin elasticity.

Skin Boosters also stimulate collagen production, which helps to renew skin cells, keeping the skin smooth.

Skin Boosters collagen production can also contribute to the overall improvement of acne scars. The hyaluronic acid helps to keep the skin plump, reducing the depth of shallow acne scars and making them less noticeable.

However, Skin Booster treatments may not be effective for treating deep or pitted acne scars, as these types of scars usually require more targeted treatments. For effective acne scar treatment, check out our acne scar treatment here.

Benefits of Skin Booster

Reduce Pore Size

This increased hydration helps to strengthen the skin's structure, resulting in a noticeable reduction in pore size. As the skin becomes more supple and well-hydrated, the appearance of enlarged pores diminishes, giving the skin a smoother and more refined texture. Additionally, skin booster stimulates collagen production, which further contributes to pore reduction by tightening and firming the skin.

Deep & Intense Hydration

Skin boosters are primarily designed to improve skin hydration. The hyaluronic acid gel attracts and retains water, increasing the moisture content in the skin. This keeps the skin plump and hydrated, resulting in a smoother, more supple appearance.

Minimal Downtime

Skin booster treatments are minimally invasive and typically involve minimal downtime. Most people can resume their regular activities immediately after their skin booster procedure, making it a convenient option for individuals with busy schedules.

Enhance Skin Elasticity & Firmness

Skin boosters cause collagen stimulation in the skin. Collagen is a protein responsible for maintaining skin's structure and elasticity. By promoting collagen synthesis, skinboosters can improve the skin's elasticity and firmness, giving you youthful skin.

Natural Looking Results

Skin booster treatments provide subtle and natural-looking results. Since skin boosters primarily work on improving skin hydration and quality, rather than adding volume or changing facial contours, the outcome is a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance without an overly artificial look.

Improved Skin Texture

By increasing the hydration levels in the skin, skin boosters smooth out rough or uneven skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. The skin becomes softer, more even, and more radiant.
