Unfortunately our skin quality changes as we age. Typically, skin becomes drier and has a rougher texture. You may also notice that your skin is less elastic too. This is because collagen and elastic fibres begin to breakdown and there are changes to how our body spreads and uses hyaluronic acid.
This is where Skinboosters comes in. Only performed by one of our experienced medical practitioners, this treatment involves a series of microinjections of long-lasting hyaluronic acid and is designed to improve your overall skin quality. Approved by the FDA and with millions of treatments performed across the globe, this treatment has a proven track record of success and safety.
Found naturally in the body, hyaluronic acid is a water-attracting substance that helps maintain skin hydration. The hyaluronic acid microinjections will improve skin hydration from within and will naturally and gently smooth the skin for youthful skin with a healthy glow.
The results are beautiful and subtle, leaving you looking effortlessly radiant and ‘well’.
We can also use this treatment off the face to rejuvenate the neck, décolletage and hands.

Found naturally in the body, hyaluronic acid is a water-loving substance that attracts and holds water. By delivering long-lasting hyaluronic acid through micro injections, Skinboosters smooth the skin from within and improve hydration. This results in firmer skin that is naturally radiant.
This treatment is perfect for those who are looking to improve the overall quality of their skin.
How many treatments will I need?
Before undergoing Skinboosters at the Light Touch Clinic, you will be invited to a consultation with one of our experienced medical practitioners. During the consultation, our practitioners will listen to your concerns and answer any questions you may have about the treatment. They will also assess your skin quality and suitability for treatment.
Treatment plans will vary from patient to patient, but typically many patients will have a series of 3 treatment sessions spaced 2 – 4 weeks apart. After these 3 initial treatments, we usually recommend that patients come back for one treatment every 6 months to maintain the results.
Where can be treated with Skinboosters?
Skinboosters can be used to refresh and rejuvenate the face, hands and décolletage. In addition, Skinboosters can also help improve the appearance of acne-scarred skin.
Does it hurt?
This is a very comfortable treatment and the needles contain anaesthetic to ensure maximum comfort. However, additional topical anaesthetic is available upon request. Please not if you do decide to have addition anaesthetic, you will need to arrive an hour early to have this applied.
How long will the results last?
The longevity of the results will depend on how fast your body metabolises hyaluronic acid, but as a guide you can expect this treatment to last around 6 months before you need a top up.
