Skin Booster

Dehydrated skin can feel rough, flaky, and tight. It can also lead to other skin problems such as itching, inflammation and acne. Therefore, it is important to maintain optimal hydration levels for overall skin health. This can be achieved through various means, including drinking enough water, using moisturizers, and following a healthy diet and lifestyle habits.

Skin boosters are hyaluronic acid-based solutions that are injected into the skin to improve the appearance of skin on your face, neck, decolletage, and hands. They provide optimal results due to their ability to work from the inside out, awakening cells within the ‘power center’ of your skin to replenish, revive, and rejuvenate. Hyaluronic acid is used as it’s a potent natural moisturizing factor naturally found in skin, muscles, and joints. Its ability to draw 1000 times its weight in water into the skin makes it ideal for binding and retaining water molecules, providing the very best innate moisturization.

At La Vida, we offer a range of skin boosters including Profhilo, Jelupro, Redensity 1, and Restylane. Book your consultation with your doctor to advise on the best option suitable for your skin.

The injectables will be most appropriate for older and more dehydrated skin but can essentially be used on anyone provided they don’t have any allergies to hyaluronic acid or the vitamins contained in a skin booster solution. They are great for anyone looking to treat and prevent early signs of ageing as well as those who are going through the menopause, as the menopause contributes to dry, thin skin.
