You’ve probably heard about HA Skin Booster for the face. Thanks to its hydrating, plumping, glow giving benefits, the aesthetic treatment has gained a lot of popularity. But did you know that it’s also possible to get HA Skin Booster for the body? Here’s everything you need to know about the non-surgical skin tightening aesthetic treatment.
What is HA Skin Booster (Body)
HA Skin Booster (Body) is an injectable that is designed to treat loose skin in areas like the inner arm, abdomen, neck, hands etc. It has a high concentration of pure hyaluronic acid in two different molecular weights that stimulate production of four different types of collagen and elastin in the body. Increased collagen and elastin help support the skin better and improve the appearance making it look smoother, firmer and more youthful.
Who is this aesthetic treatment for?
Anyone who has loose, crepey skin around the neck, saggy inner arms (bingo wings), or thin skin on the hands can opt for this aesthetic treatment. It can also be used to treat sagging skin around the abdomen postpartum (if done sooner, rather than later) and on individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight.
Why do you need it?
As we age, production of collagen and elastin slows down and without the “brick and mortar” proteins to hold the skin up and keep the skin taut, it becomes lax and loose, and looks dry and wrinkly. Lifestyle choices like smoking and excessive sun exposure also break down collagen and elastin speeding up loss of elasticity. Not only do aesthetic treatments like HA Skin Booster (Body) help boost production of collagen and elastin thus improving the look of loose, crepey skin, it also provides long lasting hydration to keep skin plump and smooth.
What is the treatment like?
During this aesthetic treatment, the skin booster is injected into the area to be treated via the BAP or Bio Aesthetic Points Technique. An extremely fine gauge needle is used to inject the formula just under the skin at 10 precise BAP points that are away from nerves and major blood vessels reducing the risk of bruising and swelling. Injecting it at the 10 BAP points also makes for better dispersal of the product in the tissues. You may feel a small pinprick as the needle goes in, but it lasts only for a second, and there is always numbing cream on hand should you have a low pain threshold.
How long does the treatment last?
Each session of this aesthetic treatment lasts about 20 to 30 minutes depending on the size of the area to be treated. There is no down time and you can return to your usual activities soon after. In fact, this aesthetic treatment can be done during a lunch break.
How many sessions do you need?
To get the best results from this aesthetic treatment, it is ideal to get two sessions with a 30-day interval and complement the treatment with the Body Patch and Body Cream.
The soothing and moisturising Body Patch is packed with a cocktail of high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, antioxidant rich salvia haenkei, soothing arnica and escin that helps drain excess fluid to help boost results of the aesthetic treatment. Simply apply the patch to the treated area and remove after two to three hours and replace with a fresh one.
Lightweight with a silky texture and easily absorbed, the Body Cream helps tone, tighten and deeply hydrate skin thanks to hyaluronic acid in different molecular weights as well as a combination of peptides.
Where can you get this aesthetic treatment?
It’s best to get this aesthetic treatment at a reputed aesthetic clinic like illuma Medical, as it requires a skilled professional with thorough knowledge of and experience with injecting at the BAP to get the best results. Still, since each person’s skin type and condition are different, results may vary.
