HA Boosters are a series of treatments that infuse the skin with a combination of hyaluronic acid and essential nutrients including antioxidants, minerals, vitamin B6 and amino acids. The treatment is designed to help firm, hydrate, tighten and provide an overall glow to the skin on the face, neck and chest.
HA Boosters are an extremely effective option for patients with minor imperfections and uneven skin tone and texture. They utilize suction and very small needles to infuse the hyaluronic acid into the skin and can have various levels of sensation from a pinprick to an intense poke. Improvement to the overall skin quality is expected to increase with multiple treatments.
