After a medicinal therapy for acne, quite often scars and uneven skin are left behind. The Skinbooster therapy is a special injection with hyaluronic acid. It makes the skin surface once again uniform and smooth.
Even after a dermal abrasion or a laser treatment, with a Skinbooster therapy, the scars can be significantly reduced.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally produced by the body, it binds with moisture and is responsible for the regeneration of collagen. A healthy skin regenerates every 28 days. But patients who suffer from severe acne, or patients who underwent an acne treatment, may have an imbalanced skin cells regeneration cycle, their skin is often dry and their lips chapped.
Also, the production of hyaluronic acid decreases dramatically after 30. In a Skinbooster procedure, a very thin filler is injected under the skin, so that the entire face is hydrated.
The hyaluronic acid intervenes directly in the regeneration process of the skin. So that the skin, damaged by the acne therapy and the medicinal treatment, can, with time, once again be able to bind moisture and regenerate on its own.
The Skinbooster therapy with hyaluronic acid injections should be performed as soon as possible. But, cases of active and severe acne should be treated beforehand through dermatological methods or medicinal treatments. For ideal results, 3 treatments at intervals of 4 to 6 weeks are generally necessary.
In addition to the Skinbooster, Clinic Beethovenstrasse AG also offers the Beauty Skin Activator injection therapy, another effective treatment option for facial scars.

After a Skinbooster treatment, no additional postoperative treatment is necessary. For the next 48 hours, you should avoid practicing intensive sports activities and going to the sauna.
