Skin Boosters is a hydrating injectable treatment that improves the appearance of the skin and results in radiant, glowing skin. Environmental factors such as pollution, diet, stress, smoking and the natural aging process can damage the skin. Skin may show signs of this stress in the form of fine lines, dull/lack-lustre complexion, dry, rough or uneven texture.
Skin Boosters helps to restore skin’s natural radiance and youthful plumpness. It is made from a substance that is naturally found in our body. It is hydrophilic – meaning it attracts water – and it provides deep hydration to the skin. In essence, it is an injectable moisturiser and replenishes the skin’s hydration level where it is needed. It’s commonly used to treat the face, décolletage and hands to improve overall skin quality and correct early signs of ageing. Skin boosters is also a popular treatment used to reduce the appearance of acne scarring.
Before the Treatment
Prior to skin booster treatment at COCO Skin Clinic you will receive a face-to-face consultation with Dr Jane Lucas to determine if this is the right treatment for you. During this time, you will be able to ask questions and have any concerns addressed. Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed to ensure that all make-up and residue is removed prior to treatment. It will be disinfected using medicated solution.
During the Treatment
Topical numbing cream will be applied to treatment areas. We also use premium skin boosters, which all contain a numbing agent in their composition. With these measures, most people find that skin booster treatments are only minimally uncomfortable.
After the Treatment
You may experience localised bruising and swelling of the treated area immediately following skin booster treatment. The extent of this is very individual – however, we find that in most people, localised swelling settles within 24-48 hours and bruising settles within a few days. However, we do recommend that you allow 2 weeks recovery period before any major social events.
Number of Treatments
For optimal results, we recommend a course of 3 treatments at 4-week intervals.
The results from skin booster treatment is usually evident with 4-6 weeks from the initial treatment. It is a progressive, gradual result and you will see an improvement in your skin with each treatment course.
- Plump, hydrated skin
- Improved skin quality
- Improved skin elasticity and firmness
- Reduction in fine lines
- Improved skin texture
- Reduction in the appearance of acne scars
Longevity of Results
The typical longevity of skin booster treatment is approximately 12 months. The initial phase requires a series of 3 treatments, performed 4 weeks apart. Most patients will maintain their results with a single treatment session 6-12 monthly. This treatment program is only a guide and Dr Jane Lucas will recommend the treatment plan that is right for you.
