This hydrating treatment involves hydrating microinjections of a soft, gel-like substance called Hyaluronic Acid (HA) into the skin, which improves the skin’s firmness, elasticity and radiance. Water-loving HA is found naturally in the body where it maintains hydration in the skin. As we age, the quality of our HA diminishes over time. Now you have the opportunity to replenish and maintain natural hydration levels from within as the stabilised HA in Skin boosters.
Skinboosters can be used to treat a range of areas including the face, neck, decolletage and hands. They are most commonly used on the lower face, and are a perfect treatment for smokers lines. Skinboosters work to improve skin texture and hydration around the mouth, chin, and lower cheek. Skinboosters are extremely effective at reducing the appearance of acne scarring and revitalising dehydrated skin.

What can you expect?
On each visit your doctor will administer a series of tiny, fine-needle injections into the mid to deep dermis (the underlying layer of the skin.) These micro injections will focus on your problem areas. During the procedure, some people experience a certain level of discomfort. Each treatment session usually takes around 20-30 mins.
You should expect that there will be some minor bruising and swelling around the treatment areas for a day or two afterwards. The doctor will discuss all of this with you in the consultation* beforehand. Your practitioner may recommend a clean cooling pad to help reduce swelling. Avoid applying make-up on your skin immediately after the treatment. After 24 hours, if needed, you can use light make-up to cover any redness or bruising. Avoid excessive sun or extreme cold at least until any initial swelling/ redness resolves.
