Face Boosters

Face Boosters, Dr. Dalia Tobbia, Hamburg

A face booster is an injectable mixture of vitamins and amino acids intended to rejuvenate the skin and underlying tissues of the face. They improve the texture and radiance of the skin by building collagen production from the inside. When injected, face boosters target the deeper tissues similarly to moisturizers or serums when applied topically. They target the internal structures of the face to add moisture, prompt cell turnover, and provide nutrition to the skin for a healthier and youthful-looking complexion.

How Do Face Boosters Work?

Face Boosters contain substances like vitamin C, amino acids, and glutathione that work to improve skin health from the inside out. These are often found in many facial serums, moisturizers, and topical creams with the intent to produce collagen and elastin fibers. 

Topical products containing substances like these target the outermost layers of skin to rejuvenate our largest organ. Face Boosters focus on the subcutaneous tissue found underneath the skin itself. When these tissues are targeted, cellular regeneration and healing are more powerful, leading to better overall skin health.

The Importance and Function of Skin Health

Our skin is made up of two primary layers: the outermost epidermis and the deeper dermis. The epidermis provides the most protection to the underlying tissues. Its outermost layer (stratum corneum) contains tight chains of “dead” cells, creating a hard-to-penetrate barrier. The deeper dermis consists of complex proteins like collagen fibers, fibroblasts, and blood vessels. Its primary role is to protect the skin and the deeper layers beneath it, and aid in sensation. (1)

When the dermis ages, it starts losing the necessary proteins and vitamins it needs to look vibrant, hydrated, and youthful. Topical products can add moisture to the skin and provide short-term radiance, but substances like amino acids and vitamin C cannot always break through the epidermis’ tough barrier. To get nutrients to the deeper dermis, Face Boosters skip this barrier altogether.

Injectable Vitamins for the Skin

Vitamin C

It is well-known that vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, helps stimulate collagen production. It also protects the skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Our largest organ, when healthy, contains very high concentrations of vitamin C. (1) Face Boosters inject it directly into the deeper dermis, initiating collagen and elastin fiber production. We then see an increase in skin radiance, a decrease in fine lines, and an overall healthy glow develop on the outermost epidermis. Since it is difficult to penetrate our outer barriers topically, injecting vitamin C speeds up this process and ensures they reach the targeted deep tissues.

Amino Acids

Amino acids play a huge role in the skin’s moisture content by controlling hydration. Some of the most widely used amino acids in cosmetic medicine are taurine, arginine, and glycine. Taurine increases cell reproduction and controls metabolism, whereas arginine and glycine regulate moisture and hydrate the skin. (2) All of these substances are naturally found in the body and hydrate the skin from the inside out. Face Boosters take these essential compounds and combine them with others that are compatible to naturally regulate the health of your skin.


Glutathione is an antioxidant that can be used to fight signs of aging. It is known to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and increase elasticity. Aging skin loses the ability to produce the correct amount of healthy proteins it needs to maintain a smooth and youthful appearance. Antioxidants reduce the amount of oxidative free radicals in the skin that cause tissue damage and speed up the aging process. (3) Injecting them directly into dermal tissue helps your body slow or even reverse this damage, promoting cellular repair and protein production.

In combination, vitamin C, amino acids, and glutathione can work to improve the overall appearance of your skin. Face Boosters are a well-rounded treatment option to battle signs of aging and keep your skin radiant and revitalized. 

How Can Face Boosters Benefit Me?

This treatment is intended to improve the skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance. It is minimally invasive and only requires a short session of injection. Dr. Dalia uses very thin needles to administer Face Boosters just below the epidermis. This targets the deeper dermis to improve your results and instigate longer-lasting collagen production. This process continues long after the initial treatment, and it is quick and effective, allowing you to go about your day as usual afterward. Your skin switches from dull and uneven to hydrated and nourished. Face Boosters give your skin a new start by reducing wrinkles, evening tone, and providing essential cellular support. 

Ideal Candidate for Face Boosters

Face Boosters may be optimal if you have:

  • Dull or Dry Skin
  • Wrinkles and Fine Lines
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun Spots
  • Large Pores
  • Uneven Skin Tone or Texture

They are used on different areas including:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Decolletage
  • Hands
  • Scalp

With a simple injection, Face Boosters promote skin health that lasts. Dr. Dalia uses the treatment to provide you with a customized combination of nutrients to encourage optimal cell regeneration. To qualify, you must be in good overall health with no current skin conditions that may interfere with treatment. You do not smoke or are willing to quit before your treatment to ensure proper healing.

Personal Consultation with Dr. Dalia

You will meet with Dr. Dalia for a private consultation to discuss your Face Booster treatment. She will explain the entire process and inform you about the many benefits. She will ask about your skin’s current condition, cosmetic desires, and lifestyle. She will then examine your treatment area and create a personalized health plan.

Face Boosters, Dr. Dalia Tobbia, Hamburg

Your skin will look fresher and brighter after your treatment. There is no associated downtime, and your results may be immediately visible. Your complexion will continue to improve with time as the collagen and elastin fibers regenerate. Your skin will be smooth and youthful-looking as fine lines dissipate. Improving the moisture content of the skin will accentuate your facial features by adding volume and suppleness. With better elasticity, you will be less likely to develop new wrinkles, and your new-found radiance will persist throughout the skin’s cellular cycles.

Complementary Treatment

Microneedling with Stem Cells

As minimally invasive skin treatments go, microneedling with stem cells provides many benefits. Dr. Dalia uses tiny needles to penetrate the skin at carefully measured depths, then applies your own stem cells to promote cell growth and vitality. She utilizes liposuction to collect stem cells from your fatty tissue, processes the cells with centrifugation, and formulates the result into a serum that is topically applied.

Microneedling creates controlled damage, providing a clear pathway for the stem cells to penetrate the skin and surrounding tissues to speed up the healing process. The treatment can be easily combined with other skin rejuvenation efforts to greatly improve your complexion using your own bodily tissues.
