Age, stress, hormonal imbalance (post-birth, menopause) as well as sun, tobacco and an unhealthy lifestyle are all factors involved in skin aging. With time the lines develop, complexion turns dull, the skin texture becomes uneven and wrinkles appear. All these changes create dark areas on the face and the skin gradually loses its glow and becomes dry, thin and fragile.
Loss of hyaluronic acid and excessive oxidative stress are the main reasons of skin aging.
Hyaluronic acid is an essential skin component. It acts like a sponge that retains water and keeps the skin moisturized, plumped and healthy.
Skin Boosters a mix of highly concentrated hyaluronic acid and essential nutrients which is an innovative approach to lasting skin conditioning. By using Skin boosters, it is now possible to restore this balance by adequately nourishing the skin from within.
Skin boosters are suitable for the face, neck and also neckline which is a particularly fragile area often ignored by traditional treatments.
All Kensington Health Clinic treatments follow a detailed pre-treatment consultation. Your consultation starts with a detailed recording of your medical history. Then your practitioner will examine your medical history and
advise whether a skin boosters treatment is appropriate for you.
If you decide to proceed then the practitioner will explain which skin boosters option is best for your requirements and what would be the end result after the procedure.
The treatment consists in performing microinjections across the dermis, so that hyaluronic acid and the Dermo-Restructuring Complex are spread evenly into the skin. Three sessions at three week intervals are recommended for optimal cutaneous re-densification. Two to three sessions per year are recommended to maintain the effects of the treatment.
The procedure usually takes about 30 minutes and the results are mainly visible after three sessions.
The treated area should be left alone for 48 hours to settle down. Immediately after treatment it is quite normal for there to be slight redness, swelling and tenderness
around the treated area. Occasionally some bruising may occur around the treated area; this is usually short term and will subside within a few days.
Until the initial swelling or redness has resolved it is recommended that you do not use any make up for 12 hours following the treatment. It is
also recommended not to use sunbeds, saunas, steam rooms, and avoid extreme temperatures.
