What are Skin Boosters?
Skinboosters harness the scientifically-proven power of stabilised hyaluronic acid (HA) to deliver hydration deep within the skin, where it’s needed most. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a water-loving substance that occurs naturally in everyone’s body. It has many functions, one of which is maintaining hydration levels in the skin. To do this, it attracts and binds water molecules in the skin, thus giving it its firmness, elasticity and radiance. However, as we age, our HA quality diminishes. This can result in dull, dry skin. Skin boosters works by replenishing the body’s natural reserves of HA.
Are Skin Boosters safe?
At Beauty and Curves the procedure is performed by certified Doctors only. During the procedure, some people may experience a certain level of discomfort. The injected solution may contain a mild anaesthetic or your doctor may administer a topical anaesthetic prior to the treatment to help make you more comfortable. Following the treatment, you may experience slight redness or minor bruising around the treatment areas, this should subside after a few days.
How many treatments will I need?
The treatment consist of multiple very fine injections into the chosen area of skin in order to gradually improve skin quality and give it a healthy glow. While you may see results after just one treatment, for optimal results we advise that you receive an initial ‘start-up’ course, usually treatment sessions, 4 weeks apart. Your body will gradually break down the HA over the course of several months. To sustain your wonderful skin, it is recommended to have regular maintenance treatments, approximately every 6 months.
