Skin Boosters Perth

Skin boosters are an excellent non-surgical option for facial rejuvenation and skin restoration offered at our Perth clinic.

These revolutionary treatments work to improve the skin’s hydration and balance. Similar to dermal fillers, which contain a naturally occurring substance in our skin known as hyaluronic acid, skin boosters maintain skin hydration by binding closely with water to support vital collagen and elastin. These work together to maintain the integrity and suppleness of your skin to boost its appearance and texture. Skin boosters differ from dermal fillers in that they do not specifically add volume or structure to the skin. Boosters take a more subtle approach to improve the overall skin balance and ‘boost’ the appearance of the skin.

Skin boosters are available as individual injectable syringes or units. Depending on how many units are required, the number of treatment areas, and the severity of your skin concerns, will determine how much it can cost. The price of skin boosters will also vary depending on the type of practitioner (a doctor vs a nurse) and how frequently maintenance sessions are required to maintain results. An initial consultation with our highly-skilled clinicians will help determine how many sessions and units you will need to achieve your desired results and provide an estimate of costs based on this.

Prepping for your skin boosters treatment

To ensure patients achieve the best possible outcome from their skin hydration injections, they will be advised of the following pre-treatment advice:

  • If possible, cease taking any medications that could raise your risk of bleeding, such as aspirin, fish oil, and ibuprofen, seven days before your treatment. If you are taking this medication for medical reasons, do not discontinue it and consult your doctor.
  • Products containing retinol, AHAs, and BHAs should not be used two days before your procedure.
  • Avoid strenuous activity 24 hours prior.
  • Avoid excessive alcohol consumption 24 hours before your treatment.
  • Arrive at your appointment with clear and clean skin, free of makeup.
  • One hour before your appointment, take a non-drowsy antihistamine and paracetamol.

“Skin boosters are a great choice for those wanting to immediately improve the appearance and feel of your skin. They give you a refreshed look with very little downtime. ”

– Dr Gina Messiha Cosmetic Doctor MB BS FRACGP

Aftercare and recovery

Immediately after treatment, there may be slight redness, swelling, tenderness or an itching sensation in the treated area. This is a typical result of the injection and generally disappears in a few days. If symptoms persist or other reactions occur, please contact your physician.


General aftercare for skin boosters treatments includes:

  • Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours.
  • Avoid pressure on treated areas for the first few nights (i.e. sleep on your back if possible).
  • Do not touch the treatment area for a minimum of six hours, ideally 12 hours.
  • Take paracetamol regularly over the next 24 hours and then as required.
  • Avoid excessive alcohol consumption for 24 hours afterwards to minimise bruising.
  • Do not apply makeup for at least 24 hours.
  • Do not use active skincare products containing Retinol, AHAs, or BHAs for the first three days.
  • Avoid facials and chemical peels for two weeks.
  • Avoid laser or heat-based energy devices for six weeks.
  • Do not expose yourself to UV and extreme heat, such as saunas, steam rooms, and sun beds, for at least two weeks, as this could exacerbate discomfort and swelling.
  • Avoid extreme cold temperatures, including ice packs applied directly to the skin. A cool compress can be used if necessary but at specific intervals.
  • Avoid any facial massages until fully healed.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does the treatment involve?

Skin Boosters are injections administered into the mid to deep dermis in the underlying layer of the skin, e.g., face or hands. This treatment may involve up to three injection sessions to gradually restore the skin’s elasticity and smoothness. The process works to increase firmness, reduce fine lines and help improve imperfections such as mild acne scars. Although the product contains an anaesthetic, you may request a topical numbing cream before the treatment.

Are there any side effects?

Some initial mild swelling, redness, and possible bruising may occur at the injection sites, which generally resolve over the next few days.

How long will it take to see results after the treatment?

The first noticeable results will be visible within a few days of the treatment due to the hyaluronic acid’s quick hydration. Over the next few weeks, the skin will continue to improve as new collagen and elastin are laid down, producing enhanced structure and dermal thickness. As skin boosters promote cell renewal and increase collagen formation deep under the skin, the effects of your skin boosting treatment will continue to get better over time.

How long does the treatment take?

Each treatment session usually takes around 15 – 20 minutes.

How long do skin boosters last?

Your new natural and refreshed look to your skin can last anywhere from six to twelve months. Although results are noticeable after the first treatment, a course of three is advised for the best results in terms of skin texture, integrity, and softness. It is recommended to have a treatment every three to four weeks, followed by a maintenance treatment after six months.

Is there any downtime?

Possibly one to two days, depending on personal recovery and bruising.

Who is it suitable for?

Most patients, except for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, can receive skin boosters. It is perfect for individuals who wish to enhance their skin quality, moisture, and texture. However, wrinkles and fine lines are not intended to be filled in by skin boosters. They help the skin stay hydrated and encourage the production of new collagen and elastin. Patients will notice that their skin is more firm, with an improved texture and a glowing radiance.

When and where can beauty boosters be used?

Skin boosters can be used as a primary treatment to help prevent cutaneous ageing or as a supplement to other treatments. It works wonders to hydrate and gives your skin a fresh glow on special occasions. Skin boosters can be administered around the face, neck, decolletage, and back of hands.
