WHAT ARE INJECTABLE SKIN BOOSTERS?
Skin Boosters are injections that are given in Dermis to mid deep Dermis to regenerate the ECM (extracellular matrix) by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin . This regeneration of extra cellular components results in elimination of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture and quality, push back the signs of ageing and re volumizing the face where loss of volume has occurred.
There are different Skin Boosters injectables in the market ranging from low cross linking Dermal fillers to Meso therapy products and more advance interventions like Profhilo and Sunekos.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF SKIN BOOSTERS
The lightest product available in the market like Teosyal Redensity 1, Boletero Soft and Restylane Vital; and newer hydrating fillers like Teoxane RHA 1.With low cross linking and low cohesive property , these fillers do not hold form in the skin.These products are injected in superficial microboluses spread equally across the treatment area, delivering hydration to the skin for an overall improvement in skin quality.Hydrating dermal filler tend to last longer then other skin boosting products.
MESO THERAPY PRODUCTS
In recent years we have started to see more injectable mesotherapy products coming on the market. Some are used with micro-needling, plasma shower or micro bolus injections, as per hydrating filler.The interesting thing about these ranges is the combination of ingredients within the products; they are no longer just hyaluronic acid-based. Mesotherapy products are delivered in courses of weekly or biweekly sessions for the best results. Treatment results are normally assessed after the course has been completed, with extra sessions optional to take the skin to the next level, reaching or surpassing the patient’s expectations.
