Aging is a process which begins the day we are born. Apart from internal factors like reduction in collagen production, external factors like environmental toxins also fasten the aging process. The first signs of aging are seen on our face in the form of lost glow, wrinkles and fine lines.
One of the latest innovations in the derma world to tackle this problem and prolong youthfulness is Skin Boosters. Unlike traditional derma fillers, these micro injections do not enhance the features of your lip, cheeks or temples but boost skin hydration and quality. The treatment also offers the following advantages:
- Boosts Collagen & Elastin Production
- Provides necessary hydration to the skin
- Deeply nourishes the skin
- Reduces pore size
- Improves skin texture, complexion & texture
- Increases firmness of the skin
- Softens fine lines and wrinkles
- Lightens scars and pigmentation
- Aids in Skin rejuvenation
- Helps get rid of skin dullness
- Gives a glowing and refreshing look
Skin boosters are also known to be more effective than topical applications like anti aging creams and lotions. This is because Skin Boosters go beyond the skin’s surface and deliver anti aging and hydrating ingredients into your skin’s middle layer. This helps them achieve aesthetic goals better.
Skin boosters are usually injected in the areas where signs of aging are more prevalent like face, hands, décolletage and neck.
What Is The Procedure Like?
Called as the lunchtime procedure, Skin Boosters treatment hardly takes 15 minutes wherein hyaluronic acid along with essential nutrients is injected directly to the skin’s middle layer (dermis).

One may experience skin redness which can be calmed down with a soothing cream prescribed by Dr. Divya Sharma. The results can be seen within a few weeks of completion of the treatment. The same continues to improve over a period of 3 months as collagen regeneration takes place. To get best results, it is recommended to opt for 3-4 sittings within a gap of a few weeks. The effect of the treatment lasts up to 6 to 12 months.
How Are Skin Boosters Different From Botox Or Fillers?
The aim of traditional derma fillers or Botox is to voluminise and enhance the facial features whereas a skin booster moisturises the skin and improves its overall health.
There is also a difference in the type of hyaluronic acid used in these treatments. The chemical bonds in traditional fillers have an volumizing effect on the areas where it is injected which gives a lifting effect. On the other hand, the form of hyaluronic acid used in skin boosters evenly spreads across the skin and gives it the much needed hydration and boost of collagen and elastin production.
Who All Can Opt For The Treatment?
- Anyone who is 18 years and above
- A person who wants to improve his/her skin quality
- Someone who is looking to ward off signs of aging
- As a precaution measure, pregnant and nursing women are advised not to opt for this treatment.
