The Skin Booster is a procedure which uses hyaluronic acid to improve your skin and hydrate it in-depth. The formula of most dermal fillers is designed to achieve natural volume and contouring. Unlike them, Skin Boosters have a softer consistency so they can enter the skin even deeper and gradually improve its condition. This results in a healthier, more toned skin, visibly hale and shining.
Skin Boosters are suitable for both men and women. They can be used on both younger and more mature skin. It all depends on how much the body has lost the ability to produce hyaluronic acid.
Injecting a Skin Booster involves slight pain and a very fine needle. The procedure is suitable for removing puffiness around the eyes and restoring the chin’s contour. It can also be applied around the neck and neckline to remove any wrinkles. Last but not least, it is used in the area of the lips for better hydration and contouring. The Skin Booster is suitable for people with dry skin or for those who have visibly enlarged pores or scars.
Your dermatologist must verify the safety and quality of the substances used in the procedure. AestheLine Dermatology Clinic only uses hyaluronic acid solutions that have been officially registered for use in Bulgaria, clinically tested, and passed quality certification.
What does the procedure involve?
The in-clinic dermatologist, who has been trained and certified to use the solution, will prepare the patient for the procedure and strictly observe an established clinical protocol.
