Skin Boosters are microinjections of hyaluronic acid that aim to improve the appearance of the skin by improving elasticity and increasing collagen production. Hyaluronic acid is a potent ingredient of skin moisturizes due to its several cosmetics benefits. This makes them incredibly safe to use on any part of the body.
The injectable skin boosters are injected directly into the dermis layer of the skin with the purpose of restoring skin health and enhancing the overall quality of your skin. They work from the inside and allow your skin to rejuvenate and improve the texture of the skin, among other things.

When do you need to get a Skin Booster?
The restorative functions of skin booster injections are applicable to all ages and skin types. Although they can be applied to any part of your body, they are most commonly used in the neck or decolletage and face area. If you suffer from any of the following, you should speak to your cosmetic doctor about skin boosters:
- Acne and Acne Scars: Hyaluronic acid in the microinjections aims to reduce the redness of acne and prevent new acne breakouts. Hyaluronic acid also facilitates the wound healing process of the skin, which helps reduce the appearance of acne scars. If you have recurring acne, see one of our Dermal Clinicians for treatment options.
- Persistent redness of the skin: Hyaluronic acid is known as a magic ingredient in skincare products but when injected into the skin, the benefits are further enhanced. It not only firms the skin and reduces any inflammation but it also reduces redness and puffiness.
- Pigmentation of the skin: Age spots can ruin the appearance of your skin and significantly alter your self-image and self-worth. But the microinjections containing hyaluronic acid can completely remove them.
- Fine lines and wrinkles: Wrinkles are a cosmetic and mental burden that can be quite stressful. If you wish to have smooth skin without undergoing an extremely invasive medical procedure, beauty boosters are the perfect option for you.
- Dehydrated, dry, and dull skin: Air pollution, stress, and, over-caffeinating are some of the common reasons why your skin may appear dry and dull. Skin booster injections can easily refresh your skin and give it a glowing appearance.
- Aged skin: The ageing process can be especially harsh towards your skin. If you are bothered by your appearance, you should get a skin booster injection and give your face a youthful glow.

How do Skin Boosters Work?
The skin boosters’ mechanism of action includes injections of hyaluronic acid in small doses into the dermis layer of the skin, using a fine needle. Depending on your goals and expectations from the procedure, your cosmetic surgeon will recommend other treatments you can get along with beauty boosters.
The injectable skin boosters show great results due to the properties and action of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid promotes wound healing, this helps the skin revitalize itself. Furthermore, it promotes increased collagen production that strengthens, firms, and brightens the skin almost immediately. Hyaluronic acid also improves the elasticity of the skin, reducing any sagging of the skin.
Injectable skin boosters improve the appearance and texture of the skin almost immediately. And due to the marvel of hyaluronic acid, your skin will keep getting better and you may see visible changes in your skin for months after the injections.
What to expect during the procedure?
Injectable skin boosters inject hyaluronic acid, an ingredient naturally found in the skin. This makes these injections safe and they can be applied to anyone with any type of skin. In spite of this, there are still a few things to consider before the procedure.
If you are suffering from diabetes, you can still get these injections. However, you will need to comply with an antibiotic regimen to prevent infections. Similarly, if you are currently taking aspirin for your high blood pressure or hypertension, you will need to stop using it at least a week before the procedure. This reduces the risk of bruising after the microinjections.
Before microinjections can be given, a numbing agent will be applied topically to make this procedure as painless as possible for you. After that, the area of your body that will receive the injections is divided into sections. Then, your cosmetic surgeon will inject the skin booster directly into the dermis layer of your skin using a Teosyal V2 skin beauty boost gun.
If you want to enhance the appearance of your face, you will receive a full-face treatment. For this procedure, your face will be divided into five sections; cheeks, temples and forehead, and perioral area. Each section will receive a one ml injection of hyaluronic acid. If you also choose to restore the function and aesthetics of your neck skin, then that will include the division of the neck into two regions; left and right. Each section will also receive a one ml injection of hyaluronic acid. There may be a slight raising of the skin at the injection site, similar to a mosquito bite. However, that will resolve itself in a couple of hours.

Different types of Skin Boosters
There are two different types of skin boosters that you can choose from. One of them, the hyaluronic skin booster, has been discussed here in detail. The other type of skin booster is Polydeoxyribonucleotide (PDRN) skin booster.
The PDRN skin booster is derived from salmon DNA and has benefits similar to the hyaluronic acid skin booster. Both types of injections are given monthly for the first 3 to 4 months and then once every six months to maintain the results.
The main difference between the two types of skin boosters is that hyaluronic acid skin boosters generally have a more hydrating effect along with improvement of the wound healing process of the skin. They give the skin a youthful glow and remove any wrinkles and scars that might be present. Whereas the PDRN skin boosters mainly work on promoting collagen production and have little to no effect on the hydration of the skin.
Results of injectable skin boosters
The results of the injectable skin boosters are usually visible the following day. However, you may notice changes in the texture and appearance of your skin for up to 2 weeks to 3 weeks after the procedure. They are known to remove the visible wrinkles and acne scars but the beauty booster injections also remove fines lines and defects that you didn’t even notice you had. You will notice the change in the appearance of your skin and so will those around you.
