TheSKIN BOOSTER TREATMENT
Skin Boosters are made from an ingredient which is a sugar molecule that occurs naturally in our bodies.
As we age, the production of HA in our bodies generally decreases, which may make our skin appear dry and dull. The Skin Booster treatment aims to stimulate collagen production, cell renewal and promote hydration. Skin boosters are injected under the skin to help absorb and retain moisture to the area. Skin boosters also include nutrients and antioxidants for added benefits which may help in the protection against free radicals, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles as well as assist in brightening your complexion.
Our injectors will perform a full assessment of your skin to prescribe a personalised treatment plan to achieve optimal results. An anaesthetic cream will be applied to your treatment area about 45 minutes prior to the procedure to ensure comfort. The Skin Booster is administered through micro needles into the top layers of the skin. The injecting takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. At Inigo Cosmetic, we use the V2 injector, a TGA approved injecting devices. It includes five to nine micro-needles that inject the skin at once. It also allows for uniform depths and spacing of injections. After injecting, a recovery healing mask is applied and massaged in with cool globes. A serum is then applied to complement the results of the skin booster treatment.
