Skin Boosters and Dermal Filler – what’s the difference?

Filler injections have come a long way over the past decade. Once used to primarily plump and enhance your face while restoring lost volume, today they have expanded to also improve skin texture and bring about deep long-lasting hydration. So, what exactly are the two different types of filler and how do they differ from one another?  

Skin Boosters

Skin Boosters, also known as hydrating filler, are micro-injections of hyaluronic acid. How they differ from the more commonly known dermal fillers comes down to how they are injected.

Instead of being injected underneath the skin’s surface to enhance, they are injected into the skin to hydrate and improve overall skin quality.  

The product itself is also slightly different. It’s a less complex combination that only includes the hyaluronic acid (water) of dermal filler without the binding compound that provides volume, fullness and lift. When injecting into the skin, the filler is formulated with antioxidants and vitamins causing new collagen and elastin to be produced that result in healthy-looking, glowing and plump skin.  

Benefits of Skin Boosters

Benefits of Skin Boosters include:  

  • Boosting skin hydration 
  • Improving skin quality (texture, elasticity and firmness) 
  • Lessening the appearance of acne scarring  
  • Reducing fine lines  
  • Complementing other treatments 
  • Improving imperfections of the skin  

Benefits of Dermal Filler

Dermal fillers focus on lifting, enhancing and restoring volume, providing a natural and rejuvenated appearance. As the skin ages, the production of collagen and elastin slows, which gives skin a loose and supple look.

They are a versatile treatment that can be beneficial in:  

  • Restoring volume 
  • Reducing wrinkles 
  • Contouring or reshaping facial features  
  • Filling volume under the eyes 
  • Rejuvenating hands  

The results of a single treatment can be noticeable instantly and can last up to 18 months.
