Skin Boosters is a new injectable technolgy specificly designed to boost the hydration, firmness and elasticity of the skin. It can signifcantly improve the quality of the skin of the face, decolletage and hands. Skin booster technology utilises microinjections of a HA molecules delivered directly to the dermis of the skin. These hydrophillic HA molecules hold and attract water and "boost" the water content of the skin. The result is natural, beautiful skin that is firmer, more elastic and tighter. Most importantly it allows a significant improvement to a patient's appearance without risking the "puffy and overfilled look" that sometimes occurs with more traditional dermal fillers.
WHAT ARE SKIN BOOSTERS?
Skin Boosters are a direct development of modern dermal filler technologies. Dermal fillers have traditionally been used to add volume to areas like the lips, cheeks and noses. Skin boosters use a micronised, dilute version of these molecules which is optimised to add volume and hydration to the skin without "over-volumising" the face. Skin boosters, like their dermal filler cousins, are composed of molecules of micronised biocmopatible gels based on substances naturally occurring in our own collagen. Because they are naturally found in human cells, skin boostersare well tolerated and there is no need for allergy testing. Since 1996, more than three million people have been successfully treated in more than 70 countries.
For the best possible results the skin boosters need to be delivered to the correct depth of the skin to ensure a natural enhancement. To achieve the precision required our cosmetic doctors utilise an advanced, flexible micro-cannula. This soft, rounded cannula provides greater comfort compared to sharp needles. It enables us to accurately target the correct dermal plane to ensure the best results whilst minimising bruising and downtime.
Skin Boosters are composed of HA molecules which hold and attract water. The hydrophillic molecules are injected into the dermal layers of the skin to increase and lock in the water content of your skin. This long term improvement in hydration results in a visible improvement to the skin's elasticity, firmness and hydration. As the HA molecules are cross linked their longevity is excellent and the results persists for up to 6 months.
In response to a number of tragic and well publicised adverse cosmetic outcomes the Australian Medical Board Guidelines were changed on the 1st of October 2016. The law now requires all patients undergoing cosmetic procedures such as skin boosters and anti-wrinkle injections to be consulted personally (or via Skype) by a qualified Doctor. A nurse-only consultation is illegal. At Kiora, to maximise safety and minimise the reaction time to unexpected events, all such procedures have always been performed personally by an experienced and qualified Cosmetic Doctor.
WHAT ABOUT SAFETY?
Because the HA molecules in the Skin Boosters are naturally found in human cells, the likelihood of your body reacting to Skin Boosters is extremely small and there is no need for allergy testing. Since 1996, more than twenty million people have been successfully treated in more than 70 countries worldwide. The safety profile is impressive and well documented. And the results speak for themselves.
Since all Cosmetic Injections at Kiora are personally performed by our Cosmetic Doctors a large range of techniques are available to ensure you get the safest and most comfortable procedure possible. Our Doctors can choose from a range of nerve blocks, prescription only numbing creams, analgesic gases (laughing gas) or simple ice analgesia. In addition Kiora is one of the first clinics to have access to Skin Boosters with local anaesthetic incorporated into it. It gives our Doctors another option to provide safe and comfortable procedures, allowing them to comfortably inject areas like the face, decolletage and the hands.
All Skin Booster procedures at Kiora are performed solely by fully qualified Cosmetic Doctors who specialise in cosmetic medical procedures. They have been with Kiora continuously since 2005 to give a safer and more consistent outcome. Initially each patient gets a full medical consultation to discuss the health of their skin and their suitability for the procedure. All cosmetic procedures and plans at Kiora are a comprehensive process. Combining precisely placed Skin Boosters with Anti-Wrinkle Injections with Dermal Fillers injections can maximize the aesthetic results as well as increase the longevity of the result. Skin Boosters also work very well with treatments such as fractional laser resurfacing and laser skin photorejuvenation which improves the texture and colour of the skin.
