Skin Boosters Melbourne
Skin Boosters improve your skin brightness, hydration, and texture
They work by drawing water to your skin dermis and stimulating your own collagen network
Unlike Dermal Fillers, Skin Boosters do not add volume or projection to your face – your contours will stay the same, but your skin will glow
They can be used to treat your face but also your neck and hands
Almost everyone is a suitable candidate for Skin Boosters
Dr. Jodie can refresh your face with Skin Boosters by delivering a natural glow to your skin. This treatment is essentially a form of injectable skin care, which may otherwise be known as ‘Skin Glow Treatment’. Apart from improving skin brightness, Skin Boosters will also improve skin hydration and skin texture, leading to significantly better overall skin quality that you can actually see.
You may already be aware that Dermal Fillers and Anti Wrinkle injections, in the right hands, provide natural looking enhancements to your face. However, did you know that you can combine these treatments with Skin Boosters to finesse your look? Dr. Jodie recommends that Skin Boosters are best administered following such treatments as the final touch. However, Skin Boosters may also be used in the absence of other cosmetic injectables, which may be more appealing if you feel a little nervous of Dermal Fillers or Anti Wrinkle injections.
Fortunately, Skin Boosters are suitable for every skin type, offering lasting benefits for all.
How do Skin Boosters Work?
Skin Boosters are injectable gels made from a sugar that is naturally found in your skin, like Dermal Fillers. However, they have been processed slightly differently to produce a fine soft product that can be delivered more superficially to the dermis of your skin. At this layer, near the top of your skin, Skin Boosters act to draw water and stimulate collagen over time. This action hydrates and strengthens your dermis adding to your skin’s support, and creates the perfect solution for dull, dehydrated and rough skin. In fact, treatment with Skin Boosters will improve your skin brightness, hydration, and texture.
Why Choose Skin Boosters?
Let’s face it – you live in your skin! As the largest organ of your body, it is the first thing everyone visualises. Studies show that good skin quality is perceived as being more youthful than even lack of facial wrinkles and lines, so there is no question that Skin Boosters are key to a refreshed, natural look! It is also vital for longevity that you look after your skin well, as it remains your main protective barrier against harsh elements of our environment. The good news is that Skin Boosters will help keep your body’s barrier in good working order by strengthening your dermis.
What Parts of your Body may be Treated with Skin Boosters?
Skin Boosters are fantastic for improving the appearance of poorly textured or ‘crepey’ skin.
Dr. Jodie can essentially treat all parts of your face, with the exception of your Tear Troughs (or under eye hollows), where the powerful hydrating action of Skin Boosters may cause puffiness. However, she may recommend focussing on areas that are more deserving, especially your lower face, where there tends to be more sag and typically greater skin laxity. Unlike Dermal Fillers, Skin Boosters do not add volume or projection to your face – your facial contours will stay the same, but your skin will appear softer. Treating your face with Skin Boosters is more akin to ‘lying down a sheet’ than ‘lying down a doona’, which avoids bulking areas of your face; a risk with Dermal Fillers administered with inappropriate techniques by inexperienced clinicians. This additional superficial, thin layer is key to better skin hydration, smoothness and glow.
Skin Boosters can also be used to treat the backs of your hands to reduce the sinewy appearance of any tendons that may be visible, a give-away of the ageing process. Furthermore, they can help improve the texture of the skin on your neck and minimise the appearance of neck lines.
What is Involved in Skin Booster Treatments with Dr. Jodie in Melbourne?
Dr. Jodie will assess your face, neck or hands to see if you are a good candidate for Skin Boosters (which almost everyone is). To ensure you are comfortable throughout your procedure, she will use local anaesthetic injections at the entry site to numb the area prior to treatment. Fortunately, like Dermal Fillers, Skin Boosters are also manufactured pre-packaged with local anaesthetic. Dr. Jodie will use a cannula (a fine blunt-ended instrument to bypass bloods vessels and nerves) to administer the product. Although the skin over your whole face or neck or hands may be treated, she will target areas that are the most ‘crepey’ or lax, which will be more beneficial. Usually 2 or 3mls of product in total is required per treatment per area. It is best to treat one part of the body at a time.
Following treatment is important to be aware that you may swell as Skin Boosters tend to be very hydrating. Swelling may persist for 5 to 7 days, although generally it is quite minimal and not noticeable to others. Bruising is rare but also settles within 5 to 7 days. Dr. Jodie always recommends that you time your Skin Booster treatment carefully with your social calendar.
Results will look best at 4 weeks, so it is important not to judge your outcome prematurely. Even better, your skin glow can last as long as 6 to 12 months, results that are supported by an abundance of clinical studies.
Natural Looking, Tailored Skin Booster Treatments with Dr. Jodie in Melbourne
Skin Booster treatments are designed to give your skin a boost and the outcome is always a natural looking, healthy glow. Who wouldn’t want softer, smoother, brighter skin?
By addressing dull, rough, or dry skin, Skin Boosters are key to refreshing your natural look. Dr. Jodie will tailor your treatment so that the more troublesome areas of your face receive the most attention. However, she will also ensure that all parts of your face, as well as your neck and your hands, are rejuvenated.
Remember, Skin Boosters are not designed to lift, volumise or contour your face, so the risk of looking fake or augmented is virtually non-existent. Regardless, this is never Dr. Jodie’s style. You can always feel confident of a natural looking outcome in her skilled hands. Her preferred approach is to keep you looking like you, only fresher. And this is exactly where Skin Boosters come into play.
