Frequently asked questions

What Are Skin Boosters?

They contain hyaluronic acid and other beneficial ingredients to retain moisture and stimulate collagen and elastin production, resulting in an improved complexion and radiant glow.

Where Can Skin Boosters Be Used?

Skin boosters are versatile and can be used on the face, neck, décolletage, and hands. They effectively hydrate and improve skin quality, leading to smoother, plumper, and more radiant skin while reducing fine lines.

Who Is Suitable for Skin Booster Treatments?

These treatments are safe for a wide range of patients. However, they are not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

What Types of Skin Boosters Are Available?

We offer two types of skin boosters: Profilho and Teosyal Redensity 1. Profilho is ideal for mature skin, focusing on hydration and skin remodelling. At the same time, Redensity 1, popular among younger patients, enhances moisture levels and skin radiance and contains a local anaesthetic for comfort.

The longevity of results depends on skin type and treated area, generally lasting 6-9 months. We recommend maintenance sessions every 4-6 months to maintain the improvements.
