Skinboosters restore youthful skin

Published on February 26, 2015 by

You can’t change your skin-type, but you can take steps to restore that fresh, youthful appearance.  You don’t need to take the radical step of a facelift, the latest cosmetic treatments can do a lot without having to go through such a traumatic procedure.

The first step is to have a course of Skin boosters.  This treatment is a wonderful way to rehydrate your skin attracting more moisture and encouraging your collagen to reproduce so your skin is soft, supple and glowing with health.

What are Skin Boosters?

This treatment has been developed by the same experts who make the top quality dermal fillers that we use, Galderma.  We use their Restylane Skin Boosters for different skin types – both younger and more mature skins.

The treatment boosts:

  • Hydration at a deep level
  • Skin quality, reducing roughness and smoothing out minor blemishes
  • Elasticity, firmness and  resilience


The treatment comes as an injectable liquid and is injected under the skin in tiny droplets.  As the skin absorbs the droplets and the liquid reaches the deeper skin layers, more moisture is attracted helping to smooth and plump out the skin.

This treatment is a new approach to improve skin quality and has been received really well by patients.

Who uses Skin Boosters?

A course of skin booster injections will work effectively on any skin that tends to be dry at any stage of life.

With fine, papery, dry skin sometimes it seems as though lines appear overnight and become deeper every day.  Some of our patients start seeing lines appearing even when still in their twenties.  This can be frustrating when your friends haven’t got a sign of a line anywhere yet.

However, the Skin Booster treatment is not only for younger people; it works just as well on mature skin.  If you don’t want a sudden change to how you look a Skin Booster course is a great place to start.  People will notice you are looking good with a glowing and radiant skin, but won’t see the kind of difference a face lift creates.

Many of our patients take a combined approach to improving the way they look (and feel) and use Skin Boosters along with a Botox treatment to get a natural fresher look.  The Skin Booster treatment makes the skin glow with health and the Botox treatment naturally relaxes the face so the lines gradually reduce in depth.  The outcomes are subtle, but take years away.

What can Skin Boosters do?

Apart from making your skin look simply radiant, you’ll see:

  • The lines at the corners of your eyes smoothing out
  • Lines or bags under the eyes tightening up and reducing
  • The lines between nose and mouth looking less deeply defined
  • Less noticeable lip lines (although we do recommend the Emervel lip treatment, which has been developed specifically for this area).

With three treatments  at intervals of 4-6 weeks, followed by a top up treatment around eight months later, your collagen will get a real boost and your skin will look wonderful for many months.

The good news is that you can also use Skin Boosters on your neck, décolletage and hands.  These are all areas where dryness can produce those fine lines, with a papery texture.  The Restylane Skin Booster treatment will restore the skin’s hydration and smooth away the lines.
