Skin boosters are related to dermal filler as it is made out of the same hyaluronic acid constituent. The difference is skin boosters improve the firmness, and plumpness of the skin without adding volume.
Skin Boosters Treatment
Skin boosters are used on the face, neck, décolletage and back of hands. They are particularly useful for acne scars. Over time, the levels of collagen and hyaluronic acid responsible for skin hydration reduces.
Skin boosters contain hyaluronic acid which improves the skin's firmness, hydration and elasticity. Even though they are made out of the same constituent as dermal fillers, they do not fill or volumise, like traditional fillers.

Who Is Suitable
- Clients who have concerns about dry, thin skin with loss of elasticity, loss of hydration and skin laxity
- Clients who have scarring from acne or chicken pox
- In good health, not pregnant or breastfeeding
- Have realistic expectations of the results
Not Suitable For
- Clients with active or recent infections, recent vaccinations
- Clients who have permanent implants in the treatment area
- Clients who are allergic to hyaluronic acid
What To Expect
- During the treatment, your practitioner will apply a numbing agent to maximise comfort
- The procedure may take as little as 20 minutes. A cannula is used to promote comfort and safety by minimising the risk of intra-arterial injection of hyaluronic acid into a vessel
- You will experience redness and swelling for 24 - 48 hours. Bruising if it occurs will be at the entry points for the cannula and may last 7-14 days
For best results, we recommend a second treatment performed 1 month apart. However, some patients are happy with the results after one treatment and return 6-12 months.
