SKIN BOOSTERS (including Profhilo)

Profhilo, Sunekos & Seventy Hyal are ‘skin booster’ treatments that we offer at Astral Skin Clinic. Skin boosters have quickly gained popularity in the aesthetics world, the rapid onset of visible results proving popular for people of all ages. All are non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid gels. They are similar biologically to dermal filler. The difference between skin boosters and dermal fillers is that whilst dermal fillers add volume below the surface of the skin, skin boosters stimulate the body’s fibroblasts to produce a higher quantity of natural collagen and elastin, which both plump up and tighten the skin, giving a fresher and more glowing look.

Are Skin Boosters right for me?

 

Dr. Michael Aicken has been using hyaluronic acid gel (dermal filler) to subtly enhance patients’ features for over 16 years. He has taught his own technique to thousands of trainees from around the world, including a masterclass in Profhilo. 

Rather than targeting specific problem areas, think of skin boosters as providing for your skin, a sprinkling of small improvements which give a combined overall effect of making you look “better rested”, “glowing”,  “healthy”, and “glowing”. 

Profhilo quickly dominated the skin boosters market with its simple treatment protocol, its rapid onset of visible results, and its premium branding. Winning the injectable product of the year at this year’s Aesthetic Awards – again – the success of the brand speaks for itself. BUT there are other skin boosters on the market, with equally impressive results. One such option is Seventy Hyal 2000 and another is Sunekos.

 

 

How long does it last?

 

The effects of your first skin booster treatment can be boosted further by repeating the procedure after one month. The good news is that after that, the recommendation is to receive a "maintenance" treatment after that every 4-6 months. But it's up to you - we won't ask you to commit to or pay for more than one treatment in any visit. We'll also discount the second or your two initial treatments (see pricing page). 

It's also worth noting that a Skin Booster such as Seventy Hyal can be used for the lips instead of dermal filler. The main action of this is to give hydration from within for dry lips, but an added bonus is that you'll get to see what your lips would look like with dermal filler, if only for a day or two until the Skin Booster has settled in.

 

 

Will it hurt?

 

strong anaesthetic numbing cream will be applied to the area ahead of injecting. This will minimise discomfort. Additionally, as Michael has vast experience in injecting dermal filler, his injection technique will also limit discomfort.

 

 

What Skin Booster to go for?

Dr. Michael Aicken has been using hyaluronic acid gel (dermal filler) to subtly enhance patients’ features for over 15 years. He has taught his own technique to thousands of trainees from around the world, including a masterclass in Profhilo. Don't worry if you can't decide on which Skin Booster is right for you, after reading on here - Dr Aicken will keep you right.

Rather than targeting specific problem areas, think of skin boosters as providing for your skin, a sprinkling of small improvements which give a combined overall effect of making you look “better rested”, “glowing”,  “healthy”, and “glowing”. Michael will tailor your treatment to suit your specific “problem areas” and the outcome you are looking to achieve. These are products that can refresh younger and more mature skin, offering a refreshed glow, and visibly plumping out fine lines and wrinkles. Whichever Skin Booster you choose, expect a very satisfying result.

 

Profhilo is a stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid for treating skin laxity. Containing one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market (64 mg / 2 ml), it not only boosts and hydrates the skin but also remodels the ageing and sagging tissue. Profhilo does not contain BDDE. Whilst dermal filler restores lost volume and anti-wrinkle treatments act by reducing movement, this treatment improves skin quality by stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin giving both skin-plumping and skin-tightening effects. For all ages, Profhilo delivers great results as a treatment on its own or in combination with other aesthetic treatments we offer.

Profhilo BODY is also now available, this is great for the stomach and backs of arms. Profhilo Body can help add volume and boost the skin in areas that may be sagging/wrinkling with age.

Sunekos 200 can be used on any part of the body such as the face, neck, décolletage and hands. Sunekos® 200 is particularly effective in the periocular (under eye) area, to reduce dark circles and bags, and also on the forehead area.

Sunekos 1200 is also great for sagging skin and severe wrinkles caused by loss of volume. It also has antioxidant and “volumising” properties.

Seventy Hyal 2000 aims to improve the levels of hydration within the skin whilst simultaneously stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin. Seventy Hyal 2000 treats the physiological depletion of Hyaluronic Acid within skin via the infiltration of HA back into the dermis. As well as delivering intensive hydration, Seventy Hyal 2000 offers one of the highest molecular weight HA formulations on the market currently. Seventy Hyal 2000 improves skin’s texture and laxity whilst adding gentle volume and lift. Seventy Hyal 2000 can re-fresh skin’s appearance for a long-term solution or can use before an event to create instant results and a subtle enhancement.

 

 

What will it cost?

What is the downtime?

 

As with all injections, it is possible that some slight swelling or bruising will occur for 2-3 days. We ask that you try to refrain from touching your face or applying cream or makeup directly after the procedure. That being said, as treatments go, there is very little downtime, and you'll start to see results within 2 days - 2 weeks, depending on the product.
