Skin boosters are injectables that improve skin texture, elasticity, hydration and overall appearance. Skin booster treatment involves injecting hyaluronic acid which is a soft, gel-like substance under the skin, which improves the skin’s elasticity, firmness and radiance giving an overall GLOW.
What do Skin Boosters do?
Skin Boosters increase the levels of hydration in the skin and stimulate the production of collagen, improving fine lines and wrinkles, producing firmer and younger looking skin.
Another key benefit of skin boosters is that they are particularly good at improving hydration and can be used to treat many different skin areas and skin types. Most common areas are the face followed by the neck, chest and the hands. In contrast to fillers, Skin Boosters help improve collagen and elastin.
Benefits of Skin Boosters
Depending on the type of skin booster and ingredients some of the potential benefits include:
Improved and more radiant complexion
Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
Healthier skin tone
Better hydration – ‘glowing’ skin
Firmer skin texture and tone
Improved skin elasticity
Reduced dry patches
Improved overall appearance in skin tone
Skin booster injections are a soft, gel-like substance called Hyaluronic Acid (HA). This is a substance that occurs naturally in the skin and holds incredible amounts of moisture. However, HA depletes with many factors including age, sun damage, genetics, smoking and environmental factors which is what causes skin to become dry and dehydrated.
Microinjections of hyaluronic acid restores the moisture in the skin, which improves its elasticity, firmness and radiance. Skin Boosters are injected using microdroplet or mesotherapy technique of tiny injections. This process of delivering skin boosters also triggers the skin’s own repair resulting in collagen production and improved skin elasticity.

What is the difference between Skin Boosters and Dermal Fillers?
The main difference between skin boosters and dermal fillers is lift and longevity. Skin boosters add hydration, glow and restore elastin while dermal fillers add volume and soften lines to restore a more youthful appearance. Both treatments use key ingredient of hyaluronic acid and are injected under the skin using a needle. Dermal fillers can last anywhere from 9 to 12 months while Skin boosters will last up to 6 months and will need more regular maintenance.
Frequently Asked Questions About
As the name suggests, “Skinbooster” is a treatment that boosts the skin.
More specifically, it is the placement of skin nutrients and collagen stimulators ‘into’ the skin. Due to the tiny injections into the skin, it has more value in the delivery mechanism as compared to applying similar products topically and hoping for a good absorption. Skin boosters are an injectable treatment.
Skin boosters are a product type coming out of years of evidence based research. One of the skin boosters we use at our Sydney clinics contains a combination of nutrients, vitamins and essential ingredients needed for the improvement in skin elasticity and luminosity. It works by giving hydration initially and then stimulating one’s own collagen. It is a skin treatment and can be used in areas where the quality of the skin has to be addressed. Main areas include and are not limited to, under and around the eyes, around the mouth, neck lines, back of hands. It also is perfect adjuvant for a full face skin needling or RF microneedling.
Anyone looking for improving the skin elasticity, address large pores, reduction in fine lines, appearance of wrinkles, correction of skin affected by sun damage or smoking can benefit from skinboosters. It works at various levels of the skin. It enhances the radiance and hydration in the superficial layer of the skin. Working at the middle level, it reduces wrinkles. The collagen production is stimulated by its effects in the deeper layer of the skin.
Ideally, three sessions are required spaced at 4 weeks interval. Based on individual response, some patients see marked improvement after the second session.
I like to call it a non-structural physiological filler as its effect is based on stimulation of one’s own skin elasticity mechanism along with attracting water and making the skin plump. Unlike the commonly understood filler it does not give volume. Hence it is not an alternative to volumizing fillers.
The volume loss under the eyes has to be addressed with volume replacement. That may include the commonly understood tear trough filler treatment. However, adding a skin booster treatment to the skin under the eyes improves the quality of the skin and the well volumized area is complimented by a luminous hydrated skin.
