What are Skin Boosters?
Skin Boosters, also known as DermaGold Collagen Induction MicroInfusion Therapy, are the gold standard skin hydration treatment for a radiant and glowing complexion. During this transformative treatment, a cocktail of hyaluronic acid, peptides, growth factors and antioxidants is channeled into your skin to stimulate the optimal function of fibroblasts, the cells responsible for collagen and elastin production as well as maintaining the concentration of hyaluronic acid in the skin. The process of stimulation your skin’s fibroblast is called dermal restructuring or skin revitalization. This results in thicker and more elastic dermal skin layer and outer increase in skin hydration, vibrancy and luminosity.
Think of SkinMD Seattle Skin Booster treatments as hydration and collagen production reboots for your skin!
As we age, we lose the amount, tight structural support and suppleness that collagen and elastin bring to our skin. We also lose up to two-thirds of skin hyaluronic acid stores, which contributes to skin becoming dehydrated more readily, reducing our skin’s perkiness and luminosity. SkinMD Skin Booster treatments help to boost skin’s hydration, improve collagen and elastin production, resulting in a plumper, rejuvenated complexion.
What happens during a SkinMD Seattle Skin Booster Treatments?
After cleansing and prepping your facial skin, microinjections of the hyaluronic acid, peptide, growth factors and antioxidants cocktail are performed at the level of the papillary dermis, to improve skin hydration and repair overall skin quality through fibroblast activation and their subsequent new collagen and elastin production along with the replenishment of hyaluronic acid within your skin.
Skin Booster treatment sessions are recommended for up to 6 sessions, performed at 3 to 4-week intervals, depending on the amount of revitalization and correction needed. As always, we recommend advanced skin care and the daily application of a broad-spectrum, antioxidant fortified sunscreen to maintain your improved skin quality.
Maintenance Skin Booster treatment sessions are recommended at intervals of every 3, 6, 9 or 12 months, based on skin aging process and desire to maintain deep skin hydration, optimal tone, texture and luminosity.
Immediately after each treatment session, your skin may appear slightly pink to red for up to 24 hours. There may be mild swelling and rarely minor bruising. We recommend you schedule your treatment sessions at least 1-2 days prior to travel or an important event. There is no social downtime
