Hydrating fillers (also known as skin boosters) work slightly differently to traditional dermal filler in that they have been specifically developed to improve the overall condition of the skin, improving hydration and elasticity as opposed to filling deep lines and wrinkles like other Dermal Fillers.
How does it work?
As your natural levels of hyaluronic acid diminish, skin looks dull and wrinkled, and feels dry to the touch. This especially affects areas like the face, neck, décolletage and hands. Daily creams and moisturisers can help on the surface and dehydration often needs to be dealt with at a deeper level. Skin Boosters penetrate deep enough into the skin to create a lasting hydrating effect.
Juvéderm® Hydrate™ helps attract and hold moisture within the skin to restore a healthy natural glow and can be used to treat your hands, neck, face and décolletage. It also features an antioxidising agent, helping to prevent the build-up of free radicals in the skin, so the effects of your treatment can be prolonged.
It is administered through tiny injections about 1-2 cm apart. Once injected, the HA gel flows smoothly and distributes evenly into the skin. Technical Fact! - Juvéderm ® HYDRATE works because of the super-hydrating power of HA, which occurs naturally in the body. The hydrating effects of HA come from the fact that it retains water and absorbs more than 1000 times its weight!
How long will the hydrating effect last for?
The effects of skin boosters can last between 3 – 5 months depending on your skincare routine. Your clinic will be able to advise which would be the best treatment to use for your particular circumstances.
