We age, our skin shrinks, and we grow old, but does that necessarily mean that we have to look old? Skin boosters deny this claim. With the growing amount of stress, exposure to UV rays, and not enough upkeep or maintenance in our skin care regimen, skin boosters have taken up front-row seats in helping our skin reclaim its natural glow. This technology is doing rounds for more than 3 decades now. These are micro-injections of hyaluronic acid injected into the skin. As the holy book of skin care regimens would have, Hyaluronic acid is a natural moisturizing element found in the skin, muscle and joints. It has the ability to draw more than a thousand times its own weight in water and retain the water molecules within itself. This ensures in-depth and realistic hydration of the skin from within.
Where are they injected?
Skin boosters are injected into the papillary dermis where they trigger the fibroblast cells. This stimulation promotes new collagen, which in turn results in velvety, plump, radiant, and healthy-looking skin.
You can have this skin revitalization treatment on your face, neck, and hands for improved hydration, and illumination.
Skin boosters are not dermal fillers
The main component of skin boosters is hyaluronic acid which is clinically proven to stimulate collagen creation and increase the amount of elastin that reduces external stress and environmental damage. This in turn gives you firm and youthful skin. With continuous use of skin boosters, fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced.
As skin boosters introduce hyaluronic acid, it changes the way light bounces off your skin giving an even-tone complexion and radiant-looking skin with reduced skin pigmentation. It obviously matters a lot how damaged the skin is for skin boosters to work effectively. A different course of action in treatment by our Skin Doctor Dr. Neetu Narula at HM Aesthetics, Chandigarh.

- You can apply ice to soothe the skin if you wish.
- Heavy exercise steam sauna swimming should be thoroughly avoided for at least two days.
