What are skinboosters?
Skinboosters are a brand new approach to nourishing your skin, especially designed to deliver deep skin hydration. This increases hydration levels within the skin to deliver lasting moisture and improvements on the skin’s surface.
The treatment involves hydrating microinjections of a soft, gel-like substance called hyaluronic acid (HA) into the skin. This improves the skin’s firmness, elasticity and radiance. Water-loving HA is found naturally in the body where it maintains hydration in the skin.
Skinboosters offer a subtle, gradual change in skin quality and elasticity. What you get is a natural but noticeably invigorated look to your skin.
Who is suitable for the treatment?
Skinboosters are versatile treatments that can be used:
- For men and women of all skin types
- For younger or more mature skin
- For those who want to improve skin structure, e.g. in acne-scarred or photo-damaged skin
What areas can be treated?
Because Skinboosters are so versatile, they can be used to treat the hands, neck and décolletage as well as the face.
What is involved in the treatment?
Skinbooster treatments consist of multiple very fine injections into the chosen area of skin in order to gradually improve skin quality and give it a healthy glow. While you may see results after just one treatment, for optimal and longer lasting results we recommended a course of 3 treatments, each 2-4 weeks apart.
How long will the effects last?
Following the initial treatment, your body will gradually break down the HA in Skinboosters over the course of several months. To sustain the effects, it is recommended to have regular maintenance treatments, approximately every 6 months.
What happens during the treatment?
On each visit you will receive a series of tiny, fine needle, low-volume injections into the mid to deep dermis (the underlying layer) of the skin. During the procedure, some people experience a certain level of discomfort, this is eased by an application of a topical anaesthetic prior to the treatment that helps make the treatment more comfortable.
Each treatment session usually takes around 15-20 minutes.
What happens after the treatment?
Following the treatment, you may experience some slight redness or minor bruising around the treatment areas, this should subside after a few days, but in some cases bruising may last for up to 2 weeks. A clean cooling pad can be used after the treatment to help reduce swelling, but avoid applying make-up on your skin immediately after the treatment. After a rest of about 24 hours, if needed, you can use light make-up to cover any redness or bruising. You should also avoid excessive sun or extreme cold at least until any initial swelling/redness resolves
How much does it cost?
- From £300 for a course of 3 treatments
A course of 3 treatments 2-4 weeks apart is recommended. A course of treatments requires a total of 6 to 7.5 ml of skin booster – 2 to 2.5 ml at each session depending on the booster. A 6 monthly on-going maintenance treatment is recommended to maintain the effects.
