Skin Boosters

NEW to Spa Cottage this Spring.

Skin boosters are a fantastic way to improve the overall appearance and the quality of your skin. They act as a moisturiser underneath the skins surface, giving intense hydration. You can also expect to see the following results:

  • Radiant and glowing complexion
  • improved skin tone and texture
  • improve skins firmness
  • reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • reduce dryness
  • stimulate collagen and elastin
  • better hydration

Skin boosters are made up of a high percentage of hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a substance that our bodies naturally produce that helps to maintain moisture levels within our skin. As we age we lose roughly 1% of our HA stores each year after the age of 30, this can result in the formation of fine lines and volume loss. By injecting HA into the skin, in the form of skin boosters, we deliver high levels of hydration which can help improve skin tone, texture, firmness and even reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Are the results from skin boosters immediate?

No, the results from skin boosters can take a few days, up to a few weeks to show. Immediately after your treatment your skin may look a little red at the injection sites and you may have some small bumps where the hyaluronic acid has been injected, it looks similar to an insect bite. This usually subsides within a few hours as the product will disperse under your skin.

Are there any side effects?

Skin boosters are a safe treatment with little to no downtime. As with any injectable treatment you may experience swelling, bruising and redness to the injection site – you can use arnica gel on the area to help this if you wish. It’s common to have small bumps where the product was injected but these typically disappear within a few hours as the products disperses in the skin.

  • Here are a few things to avoid after your skin booster treatment:

  • Do not touch the area for 6 hours after your treatment

  • No makeup on the area for 24 hours

  • Avoid heavy exercise for 24 hours

  • Avoid facials/sunbeds/chemical peels/sauna/swimming etc for 2 weeks

Are skin boosters painful?

As with any injectable treatment you may experience minor discomfort but the treatment is very quick and numbing cream is available should you wish to use it at your appointment.
