SKIN BOOSTERS – HYDRATING INJECTABLES
Throughout the year our skin is affected by many external factors such as pollution, our fierce Australian sun and heat, cigarette smoke, hormones and even perfumes and fragrances. The result of all this is dehydration which presents as dry and tired looking skin.
As we age, our body produces less hyaluronic acid (a natural component of the skin which keeps it hydrated and supple.) Skin boosters (also known as skin hydration) will give your skin texture and tone an extra boost in a way in which creams and serums can’t.
The gel formula of the hydrator holds water just beneath the skin which provides a luminous glow to your complexion. We can also use skin boosters injected into the face as a “threading” process, which can provide a subtle lift over time (we recommend a course of 3-4 treatments each four weeks apart for this).
To some extent, all dermal fillers help to hydrator the skin but true skin boosters/hydrators contain a much smaller molecule size to attract more water.
Skin boosters are frequently used on the face, neck, décolletage and hands to provide a plumper smoother appearance. Three treatments each a month apart, will give long lasting hydration.
Many of our clients find the choice of treatments confusing! Here at Ultimate Skin & Body all our treatments and products are backed by science but not every treatment is right for every client. Therefore we offer an initial free, no obligation 30-minute consultation to enable our team to identify your priorities and help you make the best choices to deliver an optimal result.
Let our experienced professionals guide you.
WHAT ARE SKIN BOOSTERS?
Skinboosters are a unique approach to nourishing your skin, designed to deliver deep skin hydration rather than volume. They increase hydration levels within the skin and deliver lasting moisture with improvements on the skin’s surface.
Tiny microinjections of a soft, gel-like substance called hyaluronic acid (HA) are injected into the skin, which improves firmness, elasticity and radiance.
Water-loving HA is found naturally in the body where it maintains hydration in the skin. As we age, the quality of our HA diminishes but now, you have the opportunity to replenish and maintain natural hydration levels longer term
ARE SKINBOOSTERS FILLER?
No, skinboosters are not intended to add volume. Instead, they offer a subtle, gradual change in skin quality and elasticity.
Who is suitable for the treatment?
Skinboosters are versatile treatments that can be used:
- For men and women of all skin types
- For people with younger or more mature skin
- For people who want to improve skin structure, e.g. in acne-scarred or photo-damaged skin
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Skinboosters are so versatile, they can be used to treat the hands, lips, neck and décolletage as well as the face. During your initial consultation, we will create a personalised treatment plan to address your specific needs.
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.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
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?
Longevity varies from individual to individual and can depend upon your health, your body’s metabolism, whether you smoke and other factors too.
Your body will gradually break down the HA in Skinboosters over the course of several months.
WILL I NEED FURTHER TREATMENT?
We recommended maintenance treatments, approximately every 6 months.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE TREATMENT?
On each visit we will administer a series of tiny, fine needle, low-volume injections into the mid to deep dermis (the underlying layer) of the skin. To avoid discomfort, we apply numbing cream before treatment.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
Each treatment session usually takes around 15-20 minutes and requires a booking out time of 45mins in order to enable the numbing cream (topical anaesthetic) to work.
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. Rarely, bruising may last for up to 2 weeks.
After treatment and for 24 hours, avoid excessive sun, heat, exercise or extreme cold

SKIN HYDRATORS / BOOSTERS
Skin hydrators or boosters are a gel made from a substance that closely resembles naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid in our skin. Injected into the skin, hydrators will attract and retail water in our tissues and give the appearance of more brighter and more vibrant skin.
Many clients find that there are almost too many treatment choices available. All our equipment, services and products are highly effective and backed by science. However, not all treatments or products are suitable for every client. We, therefore, offer a FREE 30 minute consult to ensure that you receive the best possible advice for an optimal result.
