These are skin refreshing injectable treatments. They are not filler gels but do have the same ingredient - Hyaluronic Acid.
The difference is that they are not 'cross-linked' which means that they do not volumise or last as long.
They are a great starter treatment for someone who wants to enhance the appearance of their skin but is not ready to try fillers yet.
They can be injected into specific areas like under the eye or the upper lip where filler placement may appear lumpy or create too much volume.
Or they can be placed for an overall skin 'refresh' if crepiness or dry skin needs hydrated.
Skin boosters are subtle and are like injectable moisturisers. They hydrate the skin and improve its quality.
A course of 3 skin booster treatments is usually spaced 2-4 weeks apart.
Each session normally costs £170.
Products used would normally be either:
Restylane Skin Boosters
Teosyal RHA 1
The Milecross Clinic uses Profhilo and Sunekos Injections to stimulate collagen in the face.
Sunekos is injected in more specific areas like cheeks, forehead and under eyes.
Profhilo is injected for either general facial or neck skin quality improvement.
Both products are designed to hydrate the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin. They take several sessions and months to see best results but can improve fine lines, skin crepiness, tightness and firmness.
