Skin boosters have emerged as a valuable addition to the world of non-surgical cosmetic treatments and offer a natural-looking rejuvenation by nourishing the skin from within, providing hydration, reducing fine lines, and enhancing overall skin health. What sets skin boosters apart from other treatments and why are they becoming the go-to choice for those seeking radiant and youthful skin? We’ll dive into what makes skin boosters different and how they can transform your skincare routine!
Skin boosters are a non-surgical cosmetic treatment designed to hydrate and rejuvenate the skin and is delivered through a series of micro-injections containing hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is an essential component of the dermal layer of the skin whose function is to maintain skin hydration by binding water molecules. By injecting it into the skin, the treatment enhances moisture retention, giving the skin a plumper and smoother appearance. Skin boosters won’t change the shape or volume of your face – just provide healthier looking skin for a lasting glow.
SkinDC is excited to announce that we are carrying Skinvive, the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid microdroplet injectable.
What makes skin boosters different?
Skin boosters have emerged as a game-changing innovation in the world of cosmetic skincare. Some of the key differences between skin boosters and other treatments are
Skin boosters work by replenishing and enhancing the skin’s moisture content and promoting collagen production, resulting in improved skin texture, hydration, and overall quality. They work by:
Skinvive is injected as tiny, microdroplets of hyaluronic acid within the dermis layer, so you won’t see any change in shape or volume of your face. Hyaluronic acid, often abbreviated as HA, is a naturally occurring substance found in various tissues throughout the human body and plays a crucial role in maintaining the health and hydration of these tissues. Some of Hyaluronic Acid’s benefits to the skin are:
Skinvive lasts up to 6 months with optimal treatment!
Skin boosters are versatile and can address various skin concerns such as:
hydration, fine lines and wrinkles, skin luminosity, acne scars, and overall skin health. The treatment is FDA-approved for treatment of the cheeks, but the neck, chest, and hands are other possible areas for treatment. Some of the benefits of Skinvive are:
Skinvive is safe for all skin types and is perfect for patients who are noticing skin dullness or looking to improve skin smoothness. It is great for both young and older patients. Anyone interested in improved skin appearance is likely a good candidate.
NO!!! While skin booster and dermal fillers share some similarities, they are not the same. Dermal fillers are highly concentrated and cross-linked hyaluronic acid gels that are placed deep to lift the skin. Dermal fillers are typically used to add volume to specific areas of the face, such as the lips, chin, jawline, tear troughs, or cheeks, and work by “filling in” the targeted area.
On the other hand, skin booster’s main focus is improving the skin’s overall quality and hydration. The hyaluronic acid that is found in skin booster treatments are a lower concentration product designed to be injected high in the skin to improve skin hydration and appearance without “lifting” the skin. Skin booster’s improve skin smoothness for all skin types and hydrate the skin from within!
One of the great things about Skinvive is that it involves minimal downtime! Skin boosters like Skinvive are designed to be minimally invasive, and many people can resume their regular activities shortly after the procedure!
Skinvive’s results are already impressive! In the clinical trials, 63% of patients reported satisfaction with how their facial skin looked at six months compared to 11% before.
Skinvive can be thought of as an injectable facial that has a lasting glow! You may consider getting Skinvive when you:
The first step to getting Skinvive is scheduling a consultation with SkinDC! During your appointment, multiple microdroplet injections will be performed. Lidocaine, a common pain reliever, is an ingredient in Skinvive to keep you comfortable. After your treatment, you should minimize strenuous exercise, exposure to extensive sun or heat, and alcoholic beverages within the first 24 hours following treatment. Your Skinvive results can last up to 6 months with optimal treatment.
Skinvive is now available at SkinDC! At SkinDC, we understand the perception of skin disease and aging varies within individuals, genders, and ethnicities. With this understanding, we avoid “cookie-cutter” dermatology and aesthetics through detailed consultation and collaboration with our patients in order to customize each treatment and service.
