Skin Boosters

We’re all about having fun in the sun, skin is your confidence… let us protect it for you.

Skin Boosters are a type of dermal filler that improves skin hydration, firmness and luminosity, via micro-injections of a very soft hyaluronic acid filler into the skin.

Skinboosters are taking the world by storm especially in Asia where their ability to hydrate and improve the skin is being taken on by many.

Ministry of Skin is a RACGP accredited clinic.

Skinboosters are a type of dermal filler that improves skin hydration, firmness and luminosity, via micro-injections of a very soft hyaluronic acid filler into the skin. Rather than filling areas of volume loss and lifting the skin as most fillers do they are a very soft filler that hydrate and rejuvenate the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar molecule within the skin. It gives skin the plumpness and hydration associated with youthful, healthy skin. With ageing skin loses collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, and it becomes drier, rougher and less elastic.

Skinboosters reverse the skin ageing process by reintroducing hyaluronic acid. Once injected, the water-loving hyaluronic acid molecules start to absorb water up to 200 times its weight and swell, bringing about profound hydration. With dramatically improved hydration, the skin looks plumper, brighter, and more youthful. Skinboosters also stimulate collagen production to give long term, anti-ageing effects.

Skinbooster Benefits?

Skinboosters are excellent for improving skin texture and tone. Unknown to most, Skinboosters can also improve acne scars by plumping them up. The benefits of the treatment include:

  • Smoother skin
  • Improvement in fine lines and wrinkles
  • Firmer skin
  • Brighter, more luminous skin
  • Better skin hydration
  • Improvement in acne scars.
Which Areas Can Be Treated?

Skinboosters can be performed on the face and neck, but other areas on the body such as the décolletage and hands can also be treated.

How is the Treatment Performed?

Skinboosters are injected into the skin via micro-injections after the skin has been numbed with local anaesthetic cream.

What is the Treatment Regime? How Long Does it Last?

Skinboosters are best if performed monthly for 3 treatments. The initial intense regime is to ensure that the skin is saturated with hyaluronic acid, and that the treatment kickstarts collagen production process to reverse skin ageing. Subsequent treatments are done every 6 months. The treatment lasts about 6 months.

Who Is Suitable for The Treatment?

Everyone and anyone can benefit from Skinboosters. There are very few treatments, if any at all, which can give the same dramatic improvement in skin texture and colour. For this reason,  Skinboosters have earned their place in the aesthetics hall of fame, and is highly sought after by men and women. Anyone can benefit from the treatment, but in particular, people with dry, aged or dull skin, with large pores, will see the most results. People who have depressed acne scars will also benefit greatly.

What are the Downsides or Side Effects?

Injection related side effects, such as temporary swelling, bruising and pin-prick marks will occur.

What Preparations Do I Need to Make?

Please avoid alcohol, NSAIDS (such as aspirin and ibuprofen), and any supplements which can thin the blood (including Vitamin E, garlic, ginseng) for 2 days before and after the treatment to minimise bruising. Avoid swimming, strenuous exercise and going to a sauna for a day after the treatment.
