The science behind skin hydration boosters

Skin hydration boosters are a type of aesthetic treatment used to increase skin hydration, improve elasticity and reduce fine lines.

What happens with the skin’s hydrobalance as we age?

Our bodies naturally contain substances that keep our skin tissue soft, hydrated and flexible. One of these is a sugar molecule (a type of glycosaminoglycan), capable of binding with and retaining water, and which keeps our skin hydrated, soft and flexible. 

From the age of 28, the amount of this sugar molecule in our skin reduces by about one percent per year. The passage of time and exposure to environmental factors may cause skin to become dry and fine lines and wrinkles may start to appear. Skin hydration boosters aim to hydrate and improve skin quality from within.

Restoring hydration and skin quality from within

Our bodies naturally contain substances that keep our skin soft, hydrated and flexible. One of these is a sugar molecule that tends to form and degrade quickly, over the course of 24-48 hours.

Skin hydration boosters contain a similar molecule that has been stabilized to slow degradation and provide a long-lasting hydrating effect to the skin. Injecting micro droplets just below the skin surface helps to restore the composition of the skin, boosts hydration and improves elasticity.
