What are Skin Boosters?
Skin boosters are a cocktail mix of specific skin nutrients such as vitamins, enzymes, antioxidants, hyaluronic and peptides to nourish your skin. Skin boosters strengthen the extra cellular matrix (ECM) of the skin to reverse the signs of ageing. Skin boosters are an excellent choice as a non surgical treatment option which will help rejuvenate your skin and help activate & stimulate your skins metabolism.
Our Skin boosters have ingredients that help reduce free radicals, skin yellowing and hyper pigmentation, wrinkles and water loss. All the while promoting collagen production, improving the skin tone, providing nourishment and deep hydration to the skin tissue.
The result is fresher, firmer and plumper looking skin as your body starts to naturally create collagen and elastin.
How Do Skin Boosters Work & what to expect during treatment?
Skin boosters comprises of selected and targeted small injections into the dermis of the skin. The injections will nourish your skin and also increase your skins cellular activity. The composition of the specific cocktail / treatment is tailor made by our Cosmetic Doctor depending on your skin concerns and can vary from patient to patient.
Benefits can vary from patient to patient depending on the depth in which the solution is injected. We also recommend a series of 4 treatments ranging from 7-10 days apart or 14 days apart with a maintanence every 6 months to maximise results
Customised Treatments suited to the Patient
The treatment is suited to clients who wish to improve their skin texture, hydration levels and overall skin appearance. It can not be performed on clients who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Our Cosmetic Doctor will access your skin and skin tissue and tailor suit the treatment to suit your skin concerns. Every patient is different and therefore requires a different treatment protocol.
How are Skin Boosters administered?
Skin Boosters are administered either by individual injections of fine needles or the use our mesotherapy gun. Topical numbing creme is applied prior to the treatment to minimise any discomfort.
What Results Can you expect?
Overall brighter skin appearance, tighter and plumper skin, smoothing of fine lines, better skin complexion and collagen induction are some of the benefits of this treatment.
Is There Any Downtime Or Side Effects?
We use topical numbing creme to make the treatment more comfortable for our patients if required . Whilst there is no downtime, you can expect some mild swelling and bruising to the treated areas. Allergic reactions are fairly uncommon. You may resume your normal activities fairly soon after your treatment. We do recommend you to avoid hot saunas, direct sun and vigorous exercise for a few days after your treatment.
How long do results last?
Results last depending on the individual patient and how often you have the treatment. Results are more noticeable with repeated treatments. Each time you get another treatment your skin improves. Hydration and skin radiance generally lasts 3 -4 months. The collagen stimulation occurs over three to six months after each treatment. It is a slower process, but the more you do the treatments, the healthier and thicker your skin becomes, therefore improving fines lines also. New collagen in a healthy patient can last from five years, although at the same time the ageing process still continues. Skin boosters help to keep the skin in a time capsule. If you did it two to three times a year, you could look better in five years time than when you first started.
