Skin Boosters

Improve your skin’s overall quality with hydrating skin boosters at So Medical Aesthetics in Colchester.


Referred to as ‘skincare from within’, skin boosters are an injectable treatment designed to deliver hyaluronic acid directly into the skin. Unlike traditional dermal fillers that add volume or structure, skin boosters are specifically formulated to improve texture and elasticity. They’re an ideal treatment for anyone seeking to reduce the early signs of ageing, or improve dull, tired-looking skin. 

At our Colchester aesthetics clinic, we offer Profhilo and Redensity 1 skin boosters. We also provide POLYNUCLEOTIDES – a skin booster renowned for cellular rejuvenation.

Benefits Of Skin Boosters

Skin boosters are delivered via a series of microinjections that stimulate the production of collagen and elastin – two essential components for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness. The treatment: 

  • Boosts the skin’s moisture levels from within, resulting in a healthy, hydrated complexion.
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and rejuvenates tired under eyes.
  • Improves overall texture and dryness. 
  • Promotes firmer, more elastic skin, which looks and feels younger.
  • Enhances the skin’s natural radiance, leading to a fresh and youthful glow. 
  • Reduces the visible signs of sun damage, such as pigmentation and dry patches.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Areas Can Be Treated With Skin Boosters?

Skin boosters are particularly effective in areas that show signs of ageing or dehydration, such as the cheeks, under eyes and around the mouth. Common treatment areas include the face, neck, décolletage and hands.

What Is The Difference Between Profhilo & Redensity 1?

At our aesthetics clinic in Colchester, we provide both Profhilo and Redensity 1 skin boosters. Profhilo is the purest distillation of hyaluronic acid available, whereas Redensity 1 is a skin-restructuring treatment that combines amino-acids, antioxidants and vitamin B6. Profhilo is used on the mid and lower face, and Redensity 1 is used around the delicate eye area and on the forehead.

Are Skin Boosters The Same As Dermal Fillers?

Though both products share a key ingredient – hyaluronic acid – they are not the same. Dermal fillers have a gel-like consistency and remain where they are placed, whereas skin boosters flow easily through the deeper layers of the skin to treat a larger area. This groundbreaking treatment delivers optimal skin health rather than volume.

When Will I See The Results Of Skin Boosters?

You will notice improved hydration almost immediately. However, it will take around 4 weeks for reduced signs of ageing, improved texture and firmer skin to develop. 

Are Skin Boosters Safe?

Skin boosters are safe when administered by a qualified and experienced practitioner like Nurse Sophie at So Medical Aesthetics. Hyaluronic acid – the main component of skin boosters – is a naturally occuring substance in the body, meaning it carries a low risk of adverse effects.

Are Polynucleotides A Type Of Skin Booster?

Polynucleotides are a type of regenerative skin booster. Composed of long chains of DNA sourced from salmon or trout, they stimulate fibroblast cells to increase cell renewal, collagen production and hydration. Unlike Profhilo and Redensity 1, they induce bio-regeneration.
