Skin boosters - before and after

Restylane Skin Boosters

Skin Booster are a brand new approach to nourishing your skin, especially designed to deliver deep-skin hydration.

This means increasing hydration levels within the skin to deliver lasting moisturisation and improvements on the skin’s surface, creating a fresh and natural look.

The treatment involves hydrating microinjections of a soft, gel-like substance called Hyaluronic Acid (HA) into the skin, which improves the skin’s firmness, elasticity and radiance. Water-loving HA is found naturally in the body where it maintains hydration in the skin. As we age, the quality of our HA diminishes over time. Now you have the opportunity to replenish and maintain natural hydration levels from within as the stabilised HA in Restylane Skinboosters

The Restylane range of Skinboosters are the only stabilised Hyaluronic Acid products available for skin revitalisation. The stabilisation ensures a long-term effect.

Areas Treated

Restylane Skinboosters can be used to treat a range of areas including the face, neck, decolletage and hands. They are most commonly used on the lower face, and are a perfect treatment for smokers lines. Skinboosters work to improve skin texture and hydration around the mouth, chin, and lower cheek. Restylane Skinboosters are extremely effective at reducing the appearance of acne scarring and revitalising dehydrated skin.


What are Skinboosters?

After the age of 28 the fibroblasts within the skin stop producing so much of the skins own natural  Elastin, Collagen and Hyaluronic acid. Skinboosters is a course of treatment, three sessions are placed 2- 4 weeks apart. That uses micro injections that wake up the skins fibroblasts and encourage increased production of the skins natural moisturisers.  This in turn increases cell turn over, which gives a lasting effect to treatment. The addition of Hyaluronic Acid acts as a plumping and firming agent, giving the skin a more youthful, radiant appearance from within.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Water loving HA is found naturally in the body where it maintains hydration in the skin. As we age the quality of our HA diminishes over time. Now you have the opportunity to replenish and maintain natural hydration levels from within as the stabilised HA in Restylane Skinboosters continues to work over several months.

How do Skinboosters Work?

Hyaluronic Acid is a substance that naturally made by the skin, improving natural hydration levels and boosting Collagen production and Elastin in the deeper layers of the skin. Hyaluronic Acid increases hydration levels which in turn improves the skin surface texture and appearance.

What are the Benefits of Skin Boosters?

Skinboosters improve the skins firmness, elasticity and radiance in a subtle and gradual way that is natural but noticeably invigorating. The micro injections stimulate the fibroblasts to produce more of the bodies own Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen, and Elastin, this means that the treatment has ongoing benefits beyond the course of treatment.

What do Skin Boosters Treatments Involve?


Each client is advised to attend an initial consultation* with one of our doctors to ensure the treatment will meet your expectations. During the consultation your doctor should discuss any current medication you are taking, immuno-diseases, allergies, previous aesthetic treatments, and if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. On the day you should come 10 minutes before your appointment time to apply local anaesthetic cream.


On each visit your doctor will administer a series of tiny, fine-needle injections into the mid to deep dermis (the underlying layer of the skin.) These micro injections will focus on your problem areas. During the procedure, some people experience a certain level of discomfort. Each treatment session usually takes around 15 – 20 mins.


You should expect that there will be some minor bruising and swelling around the treatment areas for a day or two afterwards. The doctor will discuss all of this with you in the consultation* beforehand. Your practitioner may recommend a clean cooling pad to help reduce swelling. Avoid applying make-up on your skin immediately after the treatment. After a rest of about 24 hours, if needed, you can use light make-up to cover any redness or bruising. Avoid excessive sun or extreme cold at least until any initial swelling/ redness resolves.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do Skinboosters Last?
The average effects of the initial treatment will last 6 months, from then on it is advised that you have 1 treatment every 6 months to maintain the results.
Can everybody get Skinboosters?
Yes, Restylane Skinboosters are suitable for all skin types. Skin Boosters are versatile treatments that can be used for men and women of all skin types, for people with younger or more mature skin, for the face, neck, hands and decolletage, and for people who want to improve skin structure e.g. in acne-scarred or photo-damaged skin.
Does the Skin Boosters Treatment Require Pain Relief?
Each client may experience some level of discomfort, similar that of any other injection. Clients are advised to arrive at least 10 mins before their appointment so that a local aneasthetic cream can be applied to the area that will be treated.
What is the difference between Skinboosters and Dermal Fillers?
Standard Restylane and Juvederm Dermal Fillers work to lift deep lines, whereas Skinboosters gradually improve your skin’s texture and hydration, increasing elasticity, and reducing fine lines and imperfections from the inside out.
How many skin boosters do I need?
We recommend a course of 3 Skinboosters treatments, to get the optimum effects and improve the longevity of the treatment. After this, we’d imagine you’d want a top up treatment around once every 4-6 months or so to keep your skin looking its best!
What are the risks involved with the Skinboosters treatment?
The most common side effects include treatment site reactions such as swelling, bruising, redness, pain, and tenderness. These side effects generally disappear within one week after injection. Other potential side effects can occur with dermal filler or Restylane Skinboosters injections. You should discuss the potential treatment risks with your healthcare professional. See our Dermal Filler Patient Information Leaflet for more information on the treatment and aftercare.
Can Skinboosters help with scarring?
The Restylane Skinboosters treatment is great for helping to diminish the signs of scarring – such as acne scarring on the face. This is due in part to the treatment being administered through a series of micro-injections, which stimulate the production of collagen and a natural repair process which will help to lift the scars and improve skin texture.

  1. With the 3 course treatment, am I right in saying it will be cheaper in doing just the forehead and cheeks? I have a beard so the sides of my face, chin and neck wouldn’t need doing where my beard is.

    Also I am 20 and have acne scars so after the 3 treatments, would I still need to come back to have further treatments because you mention about 6 month repeats for maintenance? If I choose not to do that maintenance beyond the 3 treatments, would the acne scarring come back?

      Dear Versace,

      Thank you for contacting us regarding the Restylane Skinboosters treatment, the course is the same price no matter what specific area is treated. Bearing in mind that Skinboosters is an all-over facial treatment, though best results can be seen when the lower face is treated. Though the 6 month maintenance treatment is recommended, it not possible for me to answer your question regarding you scarring etc. For a more detailed assessment please book in for a free consultation with Dr Anita Kapoor, who will be able to answer all of your questions.

      Kind Regards

  2. Hi, I’m 21 and have had dehydrated skin for over a year from past use of a harsh cleanser and treatment for acne which has not gone away after quitting them. No product I use seems to offer any long term benefits. I cannot afford to get treatments every 6 months and am wondering if one course of restylane skinboosters will help in the long term and not just leave me with dehydrated skin again 6 months later?

      Good morning,
      Thank you for contacting Face Clinic London,
      A course of Skinboosters may help – a one off treatment may not. I would suggest that you pop in to have a chat to Dr. Kapoor – she will be able to give you more advice after assessing your skin, on either the ZO Skincare range we stock, or if a course of Skinboosters is the right way forward.
      Kind regards

      Good afternoon,
      I’m so sorry to hear that. We try our best to make sure our clients are as comfortable as possible – I can suggest that you arrive a little earlier than your appointment, to enable enough time to apply our numbing cream – and perhaps apply more than you’d think necessary as a precaution?
      Kind regards

  4. Hello. I have some sagging of the jowls and lines in chin from weight loss and dehydration. Will skin boosters make enough of a difference or would it better to have a thicker filler?

      Good morning,
      Thank you for contacting Face Clinic London.
      To better answer your question, I would suggest you book in for a consultation with Dr. Anita Kapoor – that way she can assess you and have a chat with you about what it was you wanted to get out of treatment, and advise you from there.
      Kind regards

      Good evening,
      As there hasn’t been much in the way of testing, the safety of any injectable treatment whilst pregnant is unknown. We do not perform any injectable treatment whilst a client is pregnant.
      Kind regards
