Skin boosters or micro-fillers are a ‘thin’ dermal filler that are injected into the superficial layers of the skin for improvement in hydration, skin tone and elasticity, and softening of fine lines and wrinkles. Skin boosters absorb water and stimulate production of collagen and elastin resulting in firmer, softer, hydrated skin.

Skin boosters are minimally invasive and are performed by our experienced Doctors.


Dry skin, collagen & elastin stimulation for thinning skin, uneven skin texture, fine lines.

PER TREATMENT (full face, typically up to 3ml) $650


COURSE OF 3 TREATMENTS (recommended) $1800

Each treatment is full face, 3ml of skin booster is used per treatment (skin boosters are a schedule 4 pharmaceutical so by law, can not be named. Please contact the clinic for more details)

Other areas, price on consultation

A series of micro-injections are made into the superficial dermis of the treated area. Our Doctors use a 5 or 9 point needle tip ‘gun’ for delivery of the skin boosters into the skin. The treatment is relatively comfortable and takes around 20-30 minutes depending on the size of the area to be treated. This treatment has the added advantage of delivering a skin needling treatment as well as the benefit of the skin boosters.

We offer topical numbing cream and nitrous oxide gas is available if required.

Skin boosting work by delivering a mix of natural acids and glycerol to the dermal layer of the skin. The natural acids attract water to improve the internal hydration of the skin. The natural acids in the filler also stimulate fibroblasts (cells) to produce new collagen and elastin.

Skin boosters work to:

  • Assist the skin to retain water which results in plump hydrated skin
  • Stimulate collagen which can increase skin thickness and volume (course of treatments required)
  • Stimulate elastin which can increase the elasticity of the skin
  • Improvement in skin texture and fine lines
Most people are suitable for skin boosters (breastfeeding and pregnant woman are not suitable, other exclusions apply dependent on medical history) who are looking to treat:

  • Tired, dehydrated skin, lack of skin tension
  • Signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles
  • Younger people with dehydrated skin looking to improve hydration and preserve collagen and elastin as they age
  • Older people with more advanced signs of ageing looking to improve skin hydration and restore collagen and elastin. Skin boosters may be combined with other treatments such as laser, radiofrequency, and dermal fillers for a more complete facial rejuvenation

No – Skin boosters will hydrate and plump the skin, they do not replace lost volume. If loss of volume or ‘hollowing’ a concern, we’d recommend biostimulator treatment and/or volumising dermal fillers for more complete facial rejuvenation.

Any area of the face and body can be treated with skin boosters. The face, eyes, neck, décolletage, hands and chest are the most common treatment areas.

This depends on the extent of ageing in the treated area. Typically a course of 3 treatments is recommended 4-6 weeks apart. As a guide, maintenance treatments are recommended as follows:

≤ 35 years old – booster injections every 12–24 months

36–45 years old booster injections every 9–12 months, then yearly

45-60 years old booster injections every 6 months, then yearly

≥ 60 years old booster injections every 3, 6 and 18 months

Side effects are mainly small swollen bumps under the skin for up to 3-4 days. More extensive swelling is possible in the treated area but not common. Pin point bruising is possible due to the number of injections administered to the area but bruising is generally minor and not tender.

Skin boosters are recommended in a course of 3 treatments 2-4 weeks apart for maximum benefit. Improved hydration to the skin can be seen with 3-7 days. New collagen and elastin production take longer. For clients with minor or moderate signs of ageing, results can be seen in 4-6 weeks. In clients with more advanced signs of ageing visible results may take up to 12 weeks.

Combining skin boosters with other treatments is more beneficial than skin boosters alone

  • Anti wrinkle injections can be used in combination with skin boosters for more intensive treatment of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dermal fillers may be used in combination with skin boosters to replenish facial volume
  • A course of laser treatments can be combined with skin boosters to improve skin thickness, skin texture, pigment, deeper lines & wrinkles, refine pore size and treat redness in the skin. We recommend combining skin boosters with PicoWay Resolve laser treatments for more complete sustained rejuvenation.
