With Spring around the corner, you may find more patients coming to your clinic seeking ways to hydrate their dry and flaky skin from the cold weather before the warmer months ahead. One solution to achieve rejuvenated and radiant skin is with skin boosters, an injectable treatment that aids skin hydration.
Skin boosters are expected to grow significantly over the years to come with a predicted market size increase from over 1 million USD to 2.1 million in 2030. This procedure has gained a lot of attention over the last few years as patients seek to refresh their dull, aged skin without using injectable botox or dermal filler.
Below, we go into what skin boosters are, how they work and whether they will be a suitable treatment for your clinic.
What are Skin Boosters?
Skin boosters, also known as hydro-filler or micro-filler, are injectables that provide deep skin hydration and promote happy, healthy glowing skin. During the treatment, Hyaluronic acid (HA) is injected under the skin which improves the skin’s elasticity, tightness and overall appearance.
As a treatment for skin laxity, skin boosters are effective for a patient’s face, neck, hands and decolletage. At LPG Clinics, we stock a variety of brands including the Jalupro skin booster and Rejuran healer skin booster which can be used to elevate your patient’s hydrating skin quality treatment.
How do Skin Boosters work?
During the treatment, microinjections of a soft-gel substance called hyaluronic acid (HA) are inserted into the skin. HA is a safe and naturally occurring substance found in our bodies and is crucial for keeping our skin hydrated, elastic and finer. But over time, levels of HA are reduced because of factors such as ageing, sun damage and smoking.
Hyaluronic acid, which holds 1000 times its own weight in water, effectively combats the signs of dull and aged skin by powerfully hydrating and moisturising the skin, leaving it plumper and more radiant.
An added benefit of skin boosters is that they are less invasive than dermal fillers and are seen as a natural solution to reducing fine lines and wrinkles and promoting skin elasticity. Safe and effective, skin booster treatments can last up to 9 months depending on the patient’s skin, age and lifestyle. With excellent results, your clinic will see an uptake in hydro-filler treatments for both returning and new clients.
Is a Skin Booster the same as Dermal Fillers?
Skin boosters are used for improving skin quality whereas dermal fillers add volume and shape to a patient’s face.
Skin boosters are primarily used to hydrate the skin and encourage the generation of collagen and elastin to firm the skin. Example products like the Viscoderm Hydrobooster and PDRN skin booster are able to improve the structure, tone and quality of the skin.
