Chasing that airbrushed glow? Skin Boosters are where it’s at!
Give me the lowdown
Skin Boosters involve micro-injections of dermal filler just below the skin’s surface to hydrate, plump and brighten the skin for a natural looking air-brushed finish. Unlike traditional dermal filler which is injected below the skin to add volume and contour the face, skin boosters are injected superficially to create a smoothness to the skin, improving skin texture and hydration. It’s the perfect treatment for minimising the look of pores and addressing premature ageing concerns and overall skin quality. After applying numbing cream, the dermal filler is injected into the surface of the skin at multiple sites using a very thin needle. This helps stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, leading to thicker, firmer skin and improvements in sagging and crepey looking skin. The treatment is quick and relatively painless, however you may feel a little discomfort for a few seconds as the needles enter the skin.

Is it right for me?
Skin Boosters are an excellent treatment for babes looking to address premature ageing, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, redness and dull and dehydrated skin. If you’re looking for a smooth, plump and rejuvenated complexion, this is the treatment for you. This treatment is not suitable for pregnant babes, or those who are breastfeeding or trying to conceive. Certain medical conditions may also preclude you from this treatment. A thorough consultation with one of our Registered Cosmetic Nurses is essential prior to your treatment to ensure suitability.
Did somebody say benefits?
Gives a natural air-brushed look to the skin Stimulates collagen and elastin to tighten and contour the face Smooths fine lines and softens wrinkles Excellent for overall skin rejuvenation Immediate plumping effect Can last up to 12 months depending on the individual and area treated Minimal downtime required
How many treatments will I need?
We generally recommend 3 treatments for best results, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. While results can be seen as early as your first treatment, full effects and benefits will occur after the final treatment. The number of treatments required also depends on your individual aesthetic goals and suitability for the treatment. Maintenance sessions may be required every 4-6 months for long-lasting results.
How long will results last?
Skin Booster results generally last around 9-12 months depending on the individual. The longevity of your results will depend on a number of factors like age, lifestyle, budget and the location of the areas treated.
Is there any downtime?
There’s very minimal downtime for this procedure. Depending on the treatment area, you can expect common side effects like swelling and bruising, however these will subside anywhere between a few days to a week post-treatment. If you have an important event coming up, we recommend you book your treatment a few weeks in advance.
