It’s no secret that hydration is the key to plumper, firmer, healthier-looking skin. But when efforts to drink eight glasses of water fail to get results, you may be left feeling as lacklustre as our dehydrated skin looks.
This is where skin boosters come in. These highly purified, hyaluronic acid-based injectables are designed to flood skin with long term moisture from within and restore a natural inner glow.
Here at Victor & Garth London, we offer the latest technology in skin boosters to cater to the various skin needs of our patients.
WHAT IS A SKIN BOOSTER?
Looking to improve the quality of your skin through hydration? Try Profhilo!
Unlike fillers and Botox which can noticeably change your facial appearance or expression, Profhilo’s purpose is to specifically improve the quality of your skin through hydration and collagen production. Think of it as an injectable moisturiser with guaranteed results.
Profhilo is a stabilised hyaluronic acid (HA) liquid that produces a hydrating and plumping effect when injected into the skin. It works by attracting water to the outermost layers of the skin, giving deep hydration within days. It also stimulates your skin’s natural ability to produce collagen and elastin which is a process which starts to decrease in our mid-twenties, so anyone struggling with low self-esteem, or anxiety due to the condition of their skin and signs of ageing can really benefit from this treatment, as can people of all ethnicities.
Patients should notice visible improvements in skin quality, hydration, and laxity after 1 treatment, though a course of 2 treatments over four weeks will give best results. Initially, you may detect a few subtle lumps, but these will settle over the next 12-24 hours as the HA spreads across your skin. Its effects reach beyond the face too, as the décolletage, chest, stomach, inner arms, hands, and knees also respond well to Profhilo.
More collagen boost?
For an added dose of collagen production, Hydro Deluxe is the latest in skin booster technology
Containing all the advantages of Profhilo, the latest technology to the aesthetics market, Hydro Deluxe, has been formulated to deeply moisturise, improve elasticity, and restore quality, with the addition of collagen boosting calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHA).
A naturally occurring mineral, the addition of CaHA to this skin boosting treatment supports the structure of the already established, glow giving benefits of hyaluronic acid, and amino acids that are found in traditional skin boosters.
A holy trinity effect that lasts longer to help skin maintain hydration
- Hyaluronic Acid provides an immediate hydrating effect to the skin
- CaHA stimulates fibroblasts to produce elastin and collagen
- Amino acids nourish theses fibroblasts to maintain the stimulation further
What’s exciting about Hydra Deluxe, is that it also contains calcium hydroxyapatite, which ensures that the skin’s natural production of glow giving collagen is supported, so results last longer than traditional skin boosters.
The best part is, results tend to last between six and nine months, as Hydro Deluxe continues to stimulate collagen and elastin even after you’ve had your treatment.
At what age should I consider injectable hydrators?
Providing you are over 18, there are no age restrictions for skin boosters. Their deep moisturising ability makes these boosters beneficial to anyone suffering with dry skin. For the collagen-boosting effects, we mostly recommend them to patients aged 30+ once the signs of collagen loss are more visible.
We only ever offer treatment on a case-by-case basis following a thorough consultation at our London clinic.
