What are Skin Boosting treatments?

Skin Boosting treatments are a new form of skin treatment designed to refresh and restore skin that shows signs of aging like hydration loss, textural issues and fine lines. These treatments contain substances that help stimulate the production of key structural proteins, enhancing skin quality and combating signs of ageing. These treatments are often used to improve the skin’s appearance on the face, neck, and hands.

How do Skin Boosting treatments work?

Gold Coast skin booster treatments involve a concentrated form of a natural skin component, which spreads upon application. This stimulates the skin’s natural renewal processes and adds hydration to the treated areas, resulting in softer, more resilient looking skin while attempting to impede the ageing process.

Are Skin Boosting treatments the same as traditional treatments designed to target volume loss?

No, these treatments differ from traditional treatments which are designed to add volume to the face or other areas. Traditionally, a chemically stabilised form of this natural skin is used to create volume, while Skin Boosting treatments do not volumise but instead focus on skin texture and elasticity. These treatments use a natural form of the substance and work by diffusing broadly and stimulating skin renewal. It may help to think of it as an “internal moisturiser”.

Can Skin Boosting treatments be used with other aesthetic procedures?

Yes, it’s possible to combine these Skin Boosting treatments with other procedures.
