Skin boosters are a quick and effective way to improve skin quality by increasing hydration, elasticity, and firmness. They work by injecting hyaluronic acid (HA) into the skin, attracting and binding water molecules for improved hydration and reduced signs of ageing. Skin boosters also stimulate collagen production, restoring firmness and elasticity.
At Fitzrovia Clinic, our main skin boosters include Profhilo, Redensity 1, and Restylane Vital, each with unique compositions and benefits.
At Fitzrovia Clinic, we offer a range of skin boosters tailored to your specific needs and goals:
- Profhilo: An injectable moisturizer with pure hyaluronic acid, providing deep hydration and improving texture, firmness, and elasticity.
- Redensity 1: Combines hyaluronic acid, amino acids, antioxidants, and vitamins to hydrate, enhance skin quality, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
- Restylane Vital: Hyaluronic acid-based, it revitalises and hydrates the skin, promoting a radiant and refreshed look.
Skin boosters offer several benefits for the skin, including deep hydration, improved texture, enhanced elasticity and firmness, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, long-lasting results, and a non-surgical, minimally invasive approach. By using hyaluronic acid and stimulating collagen production, skin boosters can rejuvenate the skin, providing a refreshed and more youthful appearance. They are a convenient and effective option for improving the overall quality of the skin without extensive downtime or surgery.
Skin boosters are beneficial when you want to hydrate and improve the texture, elasticity, and firmness of your skin. They are effective for reducing fine lines and wrinkles, revitalizing dull skin, and addressing uneven skin texture. Skin boosters are particularly useful for dehydrated skin, tired-looking skin, and loss of elasticity.
The ideal time for skin booster treatments in the UK is often during the autumn and winter months when sun exposure is reduced. This allows for optimal skin rejuvenation and preparation for the upcoming seasons.
Yes, skin boosters are generally considered safe when administered by qualified medical practitioners. The products used in skin booster treatments, such as hyaluronic acid, are naturally occurring substances in the body and are well-tolerated by most individuals. Adverse reactions and complications are rare, but as with any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects.
Profhilo results are not instant. After the treatment, it takes some time for the hyaluronic acid in Profhilo to stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin. Most individuals start noticing improvements in skin texture, firmness, and hydration after a few weeks.
Skin boosters have gained popularity for multiple reasons. Firstly, they provide a non-surgical method to enhance skin quality and appearance. They offer hydration, improve skin texture, and stimulate collagen production, resulting in a more youthful and revitalized appearance.
Profhilo, known as the “injectable moisturizer,” is particularly popular due to its exceptional ability to deeply hydrate and rejuvenate the skin. The treatment is minimally invasive and has minimal downtime, making it an appealing choice for individuals seeking natural and long-lasting outcomes.
While skin boosters are generally safe and well-tolerated, there are potential risks and side effects associated with the procedure. These can include temporary swelling, redness, bruising, or mild discomfort at the injection sites. Serious complications are extremely rare.
