Does Your Skin Need a Hydration Boost?

May 09,2020 | Posted by: CMC

Winter’s on the way, and with that often comes dry, dull skin. Stay ahead of the hydration game with a skin Beauty Booster treatment.

You’ve heard of cosmetic injectables to add volume to areas of the face and soften lines and wrinkles, but did you know there are also injectables designed to instantly rehydrate and rejuvenate skin?

They’re called Beauty Boosters, or Skin Boosters, and have created a buzz in the aesthetic medicine industry over the past several years. Dubbed the ‘injectable moisturiser’, these skin hydrators are a relatively new treatment that use a mix of hydrators and essential nutrients to deeply hydrate skin from within to create a more dewy, youthful and luminescent complexion.

How do Beauty Boosters work?

Beauty Booster skin treatments contain highly concentrated natural skin hydrators within a unique patented formula of effective natural components designed to hydrate and repair the skin and aid in skin cell regeneration and health. It also helps stimulate new collagen and elastin formation for younger looking, firmer skin. 

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the body and is acclaimed for its ability to  attract and maintain hydration in the skin. The levels of hyaluronic acid in the skin are boosted by the treatment. The other skin-loving nutrients in Beauty Booster treatments are: amino acids to help cell regeneration; antioxidants recognised for their ability to protect against free radicals; minerals required for the cell health and protection; and vitamins to aid in cell metabolism.

Combined, this hydrating injectable treatment offers long-lasting improvements in skin quality and textural condition.

What does a Beauty Booster treatment look like?

Beauty Booster is delivered to the skin in a series of micro-injections. Unlike traditional dermal fillers, they are not injected beneath the skin to augment specific areas of the face but instead is injected superficially into the surface of the skin for a powerful hydration boost.

There is typically no downtime and little discomfort.

In one study, 91.7% of patients were satisfied with their treatment and reported skin quality improvements, including an increase in skin glow, elasticity and hydration, as well as improved texture.

Results are visible after a single treatment. Three treatments around two weeks apart are recommended for optimum, long-lasting results. The duration of the results depends on the degree of correction required and your lifestyle, age and skin type.

Beauty Booster treatment is designed to help prevent premature skin ageing, restore skin density and enhance skin glow, acting as an overall skin enhancer and revitaliser. This treatment also helps to create a more youthful complexion by plumping out fine lines and increasing skin vibrancy and luminosity – making it the perfect post-summer skin refresher and winter hydration boost.
