Hyaluronic acid skin boosters are injected into the skin using an injector device or manual injections. These small deposits of skin boosters act like water reservoirs under the skin. They will act to further attract water to hydrate skin, improve skin elasticity and reduce fine lines. Skin boosters also help to stimulate collagen production which leads to an improvement in overall skin quality.
A traditional course of skin boosters necessitates 3 consecutive monthly treatments followed by a maintenance treatments every 6 months. Newer skin boosters can last up to 9 months with just a single treatment.
The skin may experience red injection marks and uneven “bumpy” skin which will go off in 1-2 days. Occasionally, bruising may occur, and the symptoms can be alleviated with an anti-bruising pill medication.
