Skin boosters, as the name suggests, simply ‘boosts’ the condition of your skin. Although youthful skin is plump, dewy, and healthy, older skin is influenced by many factors. Environmental stressors, and genetic and lifestyle factors take their toll on your skin. This can make your skin appear dull and lack lustre. The main cause is the depletion of hyaluronic acid within your skin. Typically, skin boosters contain injectable hyaluronic acid that hydrate, revive and rejuvenate your skin without adding volume. We deliver nourishment at the right level by strategically positioning the ingredients at the right location. As a result, your skin is encouraged to produce its own moisturisers, giving a lasting effect.
Hyaluronic acid hydrates and protects your skin by attracting and holding onto water. It provides your skin with its bounce and resilience. In this blog, I will discuss Teosyal® PureSense Redensity 1, Belotero® Revive from Merz aesthetics, and Restylane® Skin boosters™ by Galderma. These skin boosters benefit from the advanced technology within these industry-leading brands. Hence I have chosen them for use in Skin Enhance and Wellness in Billericay. Skin boosters can be used all over the face, hands, neck, and decolletage.
Why use Skin Boosters?
Skin boosters are the ideal treatment for the early signs of sun damage as well as signs of ageing. They are perfect for skin conditioning without adding volume to the area. We use them for several reasons. Primarily, regular use prevents signs of ageing. Additionally, skin boosters can be an alternative or complement other treatments. Occasionally used for an instant refresh or glow pre-event or before or after a summer holiday.
Skin boosters have many benefits. Firstly, they rehydrate dry skin and smooth superficial fine lines. Secondly, they improve skin elasticity. Thirdly, they reduce skin roughness and create a softer texture. Additionally, they help reduce skin pigmentation (discoloration from chronic sun exposure).

This skin booster is a soft gel containing a patented matrix of hyaluronic acid and glycerol. Glycerol is one of the most hydrating substances which amplifies the moisturising effect. By promoting water absorption within the skin, this revitaliser has 4 main benefits. Primarily, it improves skin hydration. Secondarily, it smooths skin texture. Consequently, it increases skin elasticity and firmness. Additionally, it reduces pigmentation.
The treatment protocol for Belotero® Revive is 3 sessions 1 month apart with maintenance every 6-9 months.

For best results, a course of three treatments 4 weeks apart and yearly maintenance is required.
What’s the difference between skin boosters and dermal fillers?
Structurally, dermal fillers are different from skin boosters. Functionally, fillers are used to restore lost volume. On the contrary, skin boosters are injected much more superficially than dermal fillers and do not add volume to the area.
What’s the difference between skin boosters and Profhilo®?
Profhilo® can be used on the face or body. However, when used on the face, the manufacturer recommends 5 specific points on each side of the face. This is for both safety and for maximum benefit from the treatment. Consequently, due to the consistency and characteristics of the product, it can’t be injected anywhere else on your face. On the other hand, skin boosters can be used anywhere there is skin laxity.
What’s the difference between skin boosters and skincare with hyaluronic acid?
Skin boosters deliver hyaluronic acid directly into the skin. When used in skincare, the hyaluronic acid molecule must be small enough to penetrate the skin barrier. When used this way, the action is very slow.
In conclusion, skin boosters are the most appropriate treatment for anyone wanting to improve their skin’s appearance without adding volume. They are an amazing early intervention that offers natural-looking, reliable skin revitalisation. Moreover, skin boosters can be safely used in conjunction with other treatments like dermal fillers, Profhilo®, anti-wrinkle injections, and skincare.
