Skin booster overview
Skin booster treatment may be used on the face, neck, décolletage, elbows, knees or hands as it improves the firmness and elasticity of skin, decreases roughness, serving to add volume to the cheeks, smooth facial lines, and improve acne scars.
One of the primary reasons individuals opt for skin booster injectable treatments is to combat signs of ageing. As we age, our skin undergoes changes such as a decrease in collagen and hyaluronic acid production, thereby leading to the prevalence of fine lines, reduce wrinkles, and a loss in skin elasticity. Dermal fillers and skin boosters specifically, are formulated to replenish diminished volume and to enhance skin hydration, therein resulting in a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
Common areas for skin booster treatment include the face, particularly areas prone to fine lines and wrinkles, such as around the eyes, mouth, forehead. Additionally, skin boosters are frequently used on the neck and décolletage to improve skin texture and overall firmness. These skin booster injectables can also be utilised to improve specific concerns such as sunken cheeks or hollowing to the under-eye area, or for hand rejuvenation.
The benefits of skin booster injectable treatments extend beyond mere cosmetic improvements. Patients often report an improvement in self-confidence and a boost in their overall well-being after undergoing these procedures. The natural-looking results achieved through dermal fillers and skin booster injectables contribute to a subtle enhancement, thus allowing individuals to look and feel rejuvenated without appearing overly altered.
Furthermore, the bio-remodelling aspect of these injectables contributes to long-term improvements in skin quality. The subtle stimulation of collagen production enhances the skin’s structural support, promoting a more sustained and enduring outcome compared to traditional cosmetic procedures.
To summarise, skin booster injectable treatments offer a versatile solution for individuals seeking to address signs of ageing, enhance skin hydration, and achieve an overall rejuvenated appearance. These procedures are commonly performed on facial areas prone to wrinkles and volume loss, delivering natural-looking results and promoting long-term improvements in skin quality. For those considering cosmetic injectables, dermal fillers, skin boosters, and bio-remodelling injectables present a non-invasive and effective option to revitalise their skin and boost their confidence.
Uniquely tailored plans for each patient
The ageing process of each individual face is unique, and as such, the approach to anti-ageing techniques must be personalised.
By registered practitioners with appropriate experience, our Cosmetic Doctors tailor a treatment plan for each individual patient based on their unique concerns and needs, and based on our deep experience and potentially using a range of different treatment modality options. Such cosmetic treatment modalities may encompass Soft Tissue Fillers, Collagen-Stimulating Threads, Lifting Threads, and Energy-Based Devices that are focused on skin tightening.

- Customisable Treatment Plans: Our Cosmetic Doctors tailor each skin booster injectable treatment session to meet individual needs, allowing for personalised cosmetic solutions that are aligned to specific aesthetic goals.
Depending on the type of skin booster used, the product may contain a blend of amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals to deliver nutrients that assist in replenishing the skin’s integrity. Skin booster treatment result in an immediately apparent skin glow and effect of hydration, with continued improvements seen over time in skin roughness, elasticity, texture, tone and radiance.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What exactly are skin booster injectable treatments, and how do they work?
Skin boosters are injectable treatments containing substances like hyaluronic acid that enhance skin hydration and stimulate collagen production. They work by replenishing lost volume and improving overall skin quality.
Are skin boosters the same as dermal fillers?
While both involve injectables hyaluronic acid products, the skin boosters differ from fillers in a way that the hyaluronic acid molecules are either minimally cross linked with each other or are non-cross linked entirely. This gives them the property of being liquid soft and create no obvious structural changes, hence skin boosters may be used very superficially in the skin and thus minimising occurrences of lumps or bumps.
How long do the results of skin booster treatments last?
The longevity of results may vary from individual to individual based on multiple factors including one’s personal metabolic rate, but generally, the effects can last up to six months or more. Regular maintenance sessions may be recommended to sustain the desired outcome. It is worthwhile noting that once we achieve the desired outcome with the full treatment protocol under a patient’s treatment plan, the ongoing maintenance treatments may require a reduced application of product usage. This is assessed on individual basis, in consultation with your treating Cosmetic Doctor at Pavilion Cosmetic Medicine.
