What are Skinboosters?
Skinboosters are a brand new approach to nourishing your skin, especially designed to deliver deep skin hydration and lasting improvements to the overall quality of the skin. This means increasing hydration levels within the skin to deliver a healthy radiance and provide improvements to the skin’s surface.
How does the treatment work?
Each treatment involves a series of hydrating microinjections of long-lasting hyaluronic acid, also called stabilised HA, a water-loving substance found naturally in the body that maintains hydration in the skin. Stabilised HA is a soft, gel-like substance that absorbs water and brings deep skin hydration to the treated area, giving it improved firmness, elasticity and smoothness. This manifests outwardly as a wonderful, healthy radiance.
Only a trained practitioner should administer the microinjections. The injected solution may contain a mild anaesthetic or a topical anaesthetic prior to the treatment can be administered to help make it more comfortable.
A range of different injection techniques and devices are available to suit the individual patient’s needs.
