Botox is usually one of the first things that come to mind when trying to fight signs of aging. While this injectable does a good job in treating lines and wrinkles, there is another option that delivers benefits to your skin’s hydration, elasticity, and smoothness. Skin booster is an innovative injectable that can improve your skin’s quality.

Volite-Skin-Booster-Can-Fight-the-Signs-of-AgingJuvederm is one popular of Skin Booster filler. It is made of hyaluronic acid gel (just like typical dermal fillers) and is designed to improve the quality of your skin for 9 to 12 months. It is injected into the middle layers of the dermis to smoothen and nourish the skin from the inside out.

In this post, we discuss what makes skin booster unique and how it can combat the signs of aging. 

Is Juvederm skin booster the same as dermal fillers?

While both injectables are made with hyaluronic acid (HA) gel, skin booster is not the same as typical dermal fillers. Fillers are used to fill in volume loss in the skin to restore the skin’s youthfulness without going under the knife. Many also turn to fillers for plumping up the lips, softening lines and creases, and improving facial contours. On the other hand, aims to boost the skin’s hydration in a single treatment. It can also improve the elasticity and smoothness of the skin. It can restore hydration at a deeper level, which results in a younger-looking skin with less lines and wrinkles. This makes Juvederm skin booster an effective option for combatting the signs of aging.

You can turn to this skin booster for:

  • Hydrating and nourishing dry skin
  • Improving the appearance of fine lines
  • Reducing scaly, rough texture
  • Helping even out skin depressions

How does Skin Booster work?

Juvederm skin booster is injected superficially in the skin using fine needles.  It has multiple injection points and uses VYCROSS® technology, a unique manufacturing process that offers a high concentration of crosslinked HA. This creates a smooth consistency gel and helps maintain long-lasting and natural-looking results.

When delivered into the skin, the hyaluronic acid gel in combines with the water in the skin. This then hydrates the skin, improves its elasticity, and helps remove fine lines. You can use this skin booster on the face, neck, décolletage, and hands.

What results can you expect with skin booster?

This injectable deeply penetrates the skin and stimulates the body’s own natural collagen. According to studies, the effects of skin booster can last up to nine months. It can also provide significant improvement in skin quality for up to six months, eliminating the need for multiple injections.

Plumping effects may be seen following the procedure, but significant results are visible after two weeks. There may also be needle-marks and pinpoint bruises in the treated area, but these are temporary and can last five to seven days following the treatment.

Is skin booster right for you?

People of all skin types can turn to Juvederm and use it as a skin booster treatment. Good candidates include those with mild laxity on the face, neck, and back of the hands, as well as patients with crepey skin texture, dry skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. Juvederm can plump your skin and give it a youthful glow.

You may also be glad to know that skin booster contains lidocaine to numb the treated area and enhance patient comfort. 

What to take note 

Juvederm skin booster is safe and effective, but do take note that it is still a medical aesthetic procedure. This makes it important to get the treatment from a trained injector or aesthetic doctor. Just like filler, skin booster injection also requires attention to detail and careful technique to achieve natural-looking results and avoid unwanted side effects.
