When most people think of injectables, they think dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle treatments – but what about skin-boosting injections? They are the cosmetic industry’s best kept secret, designed to give your skin that coveted smooth and dewy complexion.

Skinboosters are not a new treatment, in fact, they have been used by cosmetic injectors for over 12 years; totaling 3.5 million treatments around the world. Thanks to the recent rise in popularity of injectable treatments, skinboosters have seen a resurgence and left many people wonder, what are they?

Read on to find out how skinboosters work, and if this treatment is right for you.

How do skinboosters work?

Skin boosters, also known as skin hydrators, hydro-filler or micro-filler, work by superficially injecting hyaluronic acid into the skin’s surface. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance within our bodies and, incredibly, holds 1000 times its own weight in water! This gives it a powerful hydrating and moisturising effect that leaves skin plumper, smoother and more even.

Skin boosters are administered evenly across the treatment area in tiny droplets about a centimetre apart, for an overall rejuvenation effect. The product is much thinner than the traditional dermal filler used to volumise the lips, allowing for more even distribution.

Treatment suitability

If you’re looking for more skin radiance, smoothness and elasticity, skinboosters are a fantastic, non-invasive treatment option. They can be used on the delicate skin of your face, neck, décolletage and the backs of your hands.

Skinboosters are a great treatment for clients who have ‘done it all’ and want to take their skincare to the next level and even for younger clients who may be looking to smooth the appearance of acne scars. Of course, being a cosmetic injectable, you must be over the age of 18 to be eligible for treatment.

For best results, an initial course of three treatments is required and the results can last for up to 12 months. Depending on your unique needs, 6-monthly maintenance treatments may be required to maintain the superior hydration and skin quality provided by the treatment.
