The benefits of hyaluronic acid have now become well known, especially in the search for treatments or techniques that rejuvenate the face, giving it shine, youth, freshness and a healthy skin from the inside. For this reason, after all, it is a main infusion component in injectable mesotherapy treatments. Into this already wonderful picture, come the Skin Boosters, which are a completely innovative and amazing version of hyaluronic acid, to give the skin the ultimate and desired.
What exactly are Skin Boosters?
Recent research has shown that hyaluronic acid can stimulate the special receptors of collagen-synthesizing cells (fibroblasts). This has the effect of sending a “message” to the body to synthesize new collagen, the production of which leads to the firmness and reorganization of the skin. In order to make better use of this specific finding, specialist scientists have designed a mixture of compounds of the acid in question with different molecular weights.
In other words, it is a new category of injectable materials that are injected into the skin during a mesotherapy session. It is, in other words, an intermediate material (a hybrid, we could say) between mesotherapy materials and fillers (high-content cross-linked hyaluronic acid with an extremely fine-flowing texture and enhanced with antioxidant agents), which not only increases the volume in applied area, but also stimulates the production of collagen, to give the skin its lost freshness and radiance.
What are the applications of Skin Boosters?
First of all, let us emphasize that skin boosters are a suitable treatment for all skin types (of all ages) and that they can also be applied in the summer months without any hesitation to stimulate the skin’s elasticity, improve its texture, make deeply moisturize and rejuvenate the skin, preventing or treating wrinkles and signs of aging. It can also be used for:
- Correcting skin imperfections.
- The treatment of acne marks.
- The improvement of wrinkles on the upper lip.
- To give dehydrated and dry skin the necessary hydration.
- To give shine to the skin and a light filling.
Usually, the treatment with skin boosters is applied to the face, but also the décolleté and the neck for a more complete and natural result.
How are Skin Boosters applied in Mesotherapy?
The process is short and extremely simple. With a special technique, the material is injected at a great depth in a completely painless way (a percentage of lidocaine is contained within the material itself), using extremely tiny needles.
First, the specialist doctor draws the face of the person to whom the treatment will be applied to achieve an even distribution of the material at the injection sites (always according to the needs of the individual – nothing is standardized). With multiple small injections that the person feels like small pinches on their skin, the treatment is completed in a few minutes and lasts between 9-12 months, depending on the needs of each skin.
It is worth noting, however, that the skin does not return to its original form (before the application of the skin boosters) even after the end of these 9 months. On the contrary, the new collagen that has been created as a result of the skin boosters operation, still keeps the skin young and firm. Of course, repeating the treatment multiplies both the duration of the results and the benefit to the skin.
In relation to classic mesotherapy, mesotherapy with skin boosters lasts longer and requires fewer sessions, while it can also be combined with other treatments, injectable and non-injectable, such as RF radio frequencies, Fractional Laser and Botulinum toxin.
Immediately after the application of the skin boosters, the skin receives a natural boost, since it now has as an “ally” the thin film of hyaluronic acid that is under it, which releases its beneficial benefits day after day.
Any irritation or bruising is very mild and goes away within a few hours after application, which should always be done by a qualified medical staff or plastic surgeon experienced in the treatment in question, to avoid complications due to mishandling of the material or incorrect application of.
