The New Filler That Will Completely Change Your Skin

Aesthetics Hub | 4 May 2018

The extremes women will go to get better skin are endless. Some of us slather on pricey skin care products, others treat their skin to regular facials, and a large majority head straight to the doctor’s office for the latest and greatest treatments and procedures.

For years, injectables and fillers have been heralded as the remedy for adding back lost volume to the face, filling in lines and wrinkles and even augmenting some facial features. Now, a new category of fillers known as skin boosters, which includes Juvéderm Volite, is on the horizon.

Although Volite is only available in Europe, it’s totally different from what you currently know fillers as in that it improves skin texture and elasticity. The fillers on the market right now address volume and not necessarily the skin.

Used in the face, hands, décolleté and neck, and injected into the top layer of skin, skin boosters work best on areas of skin that are covered in teeny, tiny lines, like the sides of the cheeks or the chin. “Injecting skin boosters causes bioremodeling of the skin, activating elastin and collagen production and improving the look of damaged or aged skin,” says New York plastic surgeon Haideh Hirmand, MD. 

Injections need to be done three times and then again every six months, but the quality of the skin can dramatically change.
