Skin Boosters

Injectable moisture treatments and dermal fillers are both made of hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a natural component of human skin. HA is a water binding molecule that can hold 10,000 times its weight in water and as we get older, our bodies produce less and less of it. The aim of skin boosters, or cocktails for the skin, is to replenish lost stores of HA and therefore re-moisturise and rejuvenate the skin from the outside in.

We use Teoxane Redensity 1 and Profhilo®

Redensity 1

Teoxane Redensity 1 has pure hyaluronic acid but has the added benefit of three antioxidants, eight amino acids, two minerals and a vitamin. It repairs the skin while hydrating it and will prevent premature ageing of the skin. Fabulous if you are wanting to improve skin health, hydration, skin protection and get a ‘wow’ glow.

Profhilo®

Profhilo is pure hyaluronic acid in high quantities and will bio-remodel collagen and elastin while hydrating the skin. It’s ‘anti-ageing’ on multiple levels, but it is predominantly used for the lower face. It will not help hydrate skin on the forehead where people can find frown lines problematic.
