The Complete Guide to Skin Boosters

skin boosters

Everyone’s skin is beautiful in its own way, but it’s hard to feel confident if there are some aspects you wish you could change. Luckily, there are plenty of options for enhancing your skin’s natural radiance out there, with one solution in particular fast growing in popularity: skin boosters.

Whether you’ve spotted some fine lines around your eyes, noticed a bit of sagging under your chin, or you just want to give your complexion a little pick-me-up, skin boosters are a fantastic choice. They help even out your skin and give you a natural-looking glow, all without the pain (and high price tag) of surgery.

Skin boosters haven’t been on the scene as long as some other treatments, so it’s normal to have a few questions about what they are and how they work. That’s what we’re here to help you with today!

At Illusion Laser Clinic, our expert practitioners have been providing first-rate aesthetic treatments, including skin boosters, for years. Read on for our ultimate guide to everything you ever wanted to know about skin boosters, from how they work to the kind of results you can expect.

What are skin boosters?

Skin boosters are injectable treatments that deeply hydrate your skin from within. Less invasive than surgery, they’re a popular option for achieving a younger, more radiant complexion.

Skin boosters are typically made up of hyaluronic acid, vitamins, and amino acids, although their exact composition depends on their type. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that helps to keep the skin hydrated, while vitamins and amino acids help nourish the skin and promote cell turnover.

Skin boosters are usually used on the face, but they can also be used on the neck, décolletage, hands, and other parts of the body.

How do skin boosters work?

Skin boosters are injected into the middle layer of the skin, known as the dermis. When injected, the hydrochloric acid, vitamins, and amino acids work together to smooth and plump your skin. They do this in a few different ways:

  • Hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Once inside your dermis, it attracts and binds to water molecules, helping to increase the water content of your skin. This makes it appear plumper and more hydrated.
  • Skin boosters also stimulate the production of collagen, the protein that gives your skin its structure and elasticity. This can help to improve the skin’s firmness and reduce the appearance of sagging skin.
  • Skin boosters can also improve the skin’s texture by smoothing out rough patches and reducing the appearance of enlarged pores.

What should you expect during a skin booster treatment?

A skin booster treatment typically takes about 30 minutes. The area to be treated will be numbed with a topical anaesthetic, and then the skin booster will be injected into the skin using a very fine needle.

After the treatment, you may experience some minor redness, swelling, or bruising. These side effects are usually mild and temporary.

How long do skin booster results last?

Although you may see some minor changes shortly after your treatment, it usually takes a few weeks for the full effects to reveal themselves. This is because your skin needs to undergo its natural rejuvenation process first.

How long the results last varies from person to person, but most people experience the benefits of skin boosters for several months. Some people choose to undergo maintenance treatments to prolong the effects.

Can skin boosters go wrong?

Skin boosters are known to be a very safe procedure when performed by a qualified dermatologist, especially when compared to surgical options. However, like with any cosmetic treatment, there are a few risks to be aware of:

  • Infection
  • Bruising or light bleeding
  • Allergic reactions
  • Incorrect technique

To minimise risks, make sure you choose a trusted practitioner. They’ll talk to you beforehand to check for any potential allergies or risks and explain proper aftercare procedures.

What types of skin boosters are there?

There are countless types of skin boosters out there, each under its own brand name. Although they usually have similar formulas, they differ in their specific composition and effects.

At Illusion, we offer three innovative types of skin booster:

  • Profhilo®: A novel skin moisturising treatment that delivers highly purified hyaluronic acid beneath the skin’s surface. The depth of diffusion promotes remarkable hydration and rejuvenation.
  • Jalupro®: A treatment that blends hyaluronic acid and amino acids to revive the complexion. This powerful combination replenishes moisture while restoring a youthfully plump and smooth texture.
  • Lumi Eyes®: An advanced eye area revitaliser, it creates a visible filling effect to help minimise dark circles, fine lines, and sagging. It’s specifically designed for the delicate eye region, and uplifts and brightens without risk of side effects like lymphedema.
