Acne scars, sun exposure, and the aging process can do a number on our skin. Over time, luster and elasticity give way to dullness and sag. Fortunately, Skinboosters can put things right. This minimally invasive treatment reintroduces hyaluronic acid into the skin for a fresh, revitalized appearance and has helped countless people regain smooth, radiant complexions. Here at My Cosmetic Clinic, we encourage you to learn more about how this cosmetic solution may be able to help.
What Are Skinboosters?
Skinboosters is a safe injectable product intended for the restoration of dull, damaged skin. It is a dermal filler based in hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar molecule responsible for dermal hydration. This treatment can be used on the face, neck, décolletage, and even hands; it improves the firmness and elasticity of skin, decreases roughness, and reduces trans-epidermal water loss. It helps add volume to the cheeks, smooth facial lines, and fill out acne scars.
How Does It Work?
During your Skinboosters treatment session, a dose of the filler will be injected into the area or areas of concern. The hyaluronic acid molecules will begin to absorb water up to 200 times its weight, hydrating the skin from the inside out. We recommend two to three treatment sessions spaced about two to four weeks apart. The effects of Skinboosters are gradual and subtle, with the full effect taking up to three months to become visible. To maintain optimal results, we advise you to schedule regular maintenance sessions every six months.
How Much Are Skinboosters?
Our treatment options for Skinboosters are 1 ml for $395, 2 ml for $790, and 3 ml for $970. We recommend 2-3 ml to obtain the best results.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- How Do SKINBOOSTERS™ Work?
SKINBOOSTERS™ is like many other fillers in that it contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin. The main difference is particle size. SKINBOOSTERS™ is made of millions of tiny particles which attract water. As such, it doesn’t really fill the face but adds to hydration. Other fillers have larger particle sizes, which creates more of a filling effect.
- What is It Made Of?
SKINBOOSTERS™ contains 20mg of HA and lidocaine.
- What is Its Recommended Use?
The recommended use is 2-3mls per session. It lasts up to 6 months. In extremely crepey skin you may need to do a treatment at 6-12 weeks. It is ideal for sun-damaged skin, accordion lines in the lower face, and crepey hands.
- How Often Should Treatments Occur?
Treatment should occur every six months, but see above for extremely crepey skin. Some people do it as a one-off before an important event.
- What are the Minimum and Maximum Dosages to Bring About a Desired Effect?
2-3mls is ideal. Most people get a package of 3, unless they are quite young.
- What are the Regular Areas Treated?
Accordion lines, extended crow’s feet that come down the cheek, perioral lines, and hands are the commonest areas treated.
