Experiencing Aging Skin?
As we age, our skin loses its ability to properly maintain skin moisture level, causing dryness & dehydration. This can then lead to signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture.
There are several factors that contribute to this:
- Decreased Hyaluronic Acid – A naturally occurring substance produced by our body that helps bind water molecules to our skin’s surface.
- Thinning of the Skin – Decreased collagen and elastin production leads to thinner skin, which has a reduced capacity to retain moisture.
- Impaired Barrier Function – Our natural skin barrier loses effectiveness as we age.
- Environmental Factors – Harsh weather conditions, air pollution and sun exposure can further deplete moisture levels of surface skin cells

What are Skin Boosters?
Specifically designed to improve skin hydration and overall skin quality, skin boosters primarily consist of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the skin.
Unlike traditional dermal fillers, which are used to restore volume or fill in wrinkles, skin boosters are primarily focused on improving skin hydration. The hyaluronic acid molecules attract and retain water, enabling deep skin hydration and improving skin elasticity.
Skin Boosters also stimulate collagen production, which helps to renew skin cells, keeping the skin smooth.
Skin Boosters collagen production can also contribute to the overall improvement of acne scars. The hyaluronic acid helps to keep the skin plump, reducing the depth of shallow acne scars and making them less noticeable.
However, Skin Booster treatments may not be effective for treating deep or pitted acne scars, as these types of scars usually require more targeted treatments. For effective acne scar treatment, check out our acne scar treatment here.
