What are Skin Boosters?

Skin boosters usually contain hyaluronic acid and/or a polyrevitalizing complex containing potent growth factors, peptides, coenzymes, minerals, amino acids, vitamins, etc. They naturally integrate into the skin to noticeably improve the overall skin quality.

What do Skin Boosters do?

In general, skin boosters increase the levels of hyaluronic acid in the skin and also stimulate the production of collagen, which in turn improves the elasticity and firmness of the skin. Some of them also address other concerns like dull skin and sensitive skin, etc. The followings are some benefits of skin boosters.

  • Hydrates and conditions the skin.
  • Helps to smooth fine lines and wrinkles.

Before & After

How do Skin Boosters work?

At Sunshine Cosmetic Clinic and Medi Spa, we offer a great selection of different types of skin boosters as well as delivery options to the skin. Depending on the types of skin boosters and corresponding guidelines and regulations from Health Canada, we either use a needle or mesotherapy gun to micro-inject them into the skin, or JetPeel, our advanced needleless technology to deliver them into the dermis without breaking the skin, or apply them topically after microneedling or micro-channeling.

 

Once the treatment is completed, skin boosters will integrate into the skin naturally and improve the skin conditions from the inside out. The hyaluronic acid and other skin nutrition that are slowly released into the skin, introduce a chain reaction of events. This stimulates your skin to produce more collagen and elastin and thus makes your skin firmer, smoother, brighter, and more youthful.

Where can Skin Boosters be used?

Skin boosters can be used to treat many different body areas. The most common one is the face, followed by the neck, décolletage, and dorsum of the hands.

Who is a good candidate for a Skin Booster treatment?

Skin boosters are one of the most versatile treatments that work for people of all ages, skin types, and genders.

FAQ's

Skin boosters are either applied topically or injected superficially into the skin. So they are generally very safe if operated by a well-trained professional.
Depending on the different types of skin boosters and delivery procedures, it can be painless, with minor discomfort, or with bearable pain. If injected with needles, a numbing cream is required prior to the treatment and it will still hurt a little but is bearable in most cases. If injected with the U225 device, our state-of-the-art mesotherapy gun (or mesogun), you will experience minor discomfort if numbing cream is not applied or nearly zero pain if numbing cream is applied. It is completely painless if injected with JetPeel, our non-invasive, needleless procedure. Last, topical application won’t hurt, however, before the skin boosters are applied, the microneedling or micro-channeling procedure to create microscopic punctures on the skin might introduce minor discomfort.
It depends on the delivery method to be used. For the needles and microneedling, the downtime can be 1-3 days. In this case, you might experience some pinkness, tenderness, and/or minor swelling or bruise immediately after the treatment, which should be resolved within 3 days. For the U225 mesotherapy gun and micro-channeling, it would be zero downtime to 1 day. If JetPeel is used, there is no downtime.
A typical Skin Booster treatment program requires 3 sessions to show optimal results and is normally performed 3-4 weeks apart. After these 3 initial treatments are completed, maintenance treatments are recommended every 3-6 months.
One skin boosters treatment session takes 30-60 min depending on the volume of the booster and delivery procedure.
Results become visible 1-2 weeks after the treatment, which will improve with every treatment session.
After the 3 initial treatments are done, the results typically last for about six to twelve months, depending on the individual’s lifestyle, age, and skin type.
It depends on the types of skin booster and delivery procedure, as well as the number of treatment sessions needed. Contact us about our skin booster package deals!
