Beauty boosters and dermal filler – what’s the difference?

Beauty boosters are fast becoming a very popular treatment in the cosmetic injectables space for increasing skin hydration, but what exactly is it and how does it differ from traditional dermal filler injections?  

Beauty boosters are micro-injections of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. That’s right, they are actually a type of dermal filler. Where they differ from the more commonly known dermal fillers essentially 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. As the product is not cross linked with another molecule, it is very fluid and therefore suited to skin injections where fibroblasts are housed.  

When injecting into these cells, 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.  

Other benefits of this treatment 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  

Meanwhile, traditional dermal fillers are a cosmetic injection that is focussed on lifting, enhancing and restoring volume to the treated area, 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. Dermal fillers resolve this by reducing wrinkles, smoothing skin and restoring your skin back to a more youthful complexion.  

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.
