HOW IT WORKS

Skinboosters are micro injections of dermal filler that are injected into the skin, rather than underneath the skin like most dermal filler treatments. They reintroduce hyaluronic acid which promotes new collagen and elastin formation, bringing deep hydration.  

Skinboosters™ are used to treat the face, neck, décolletage and hands.  

RESULTS

Results build gradually and subtly with optimal results after three months that last up to four to six months. Regular treatments will help to maintain results.

TREATMENT PREPARATION
  • Avoid blood-thinning and anti-inflammatory medication (e.g. aspirin ibuprofen, fish oil, and St John’s wort) one week prior

Advise the clinic if you:

  • Are taking blood thinners
  • Using ibuprofen
  • Have had recent minor dental work (e.g. scale and clean)
  • Have a long-haul flight booked within the next two weeks

WHAT TO EXPECT

Prior to your first treatment, our doctor will consult with you to assess your suitability for Skinbooster™ injections and discuss any concerns or questions you may have.

The procedure involves a small amount of the prescribed product being administered into the selected areas using a very fine needle or a canula. The injections may sting, and a numbing agent may be applied 30 minutes prior.
