Botox, Injections and Fillers

Skin Boosters for Skin Rejuvenation in Toronto

The Skin Boosters treatment consists of microinjections of a soft gel of hyaluronic acid (HA), which increases skin firmness, elasticity and luminosity. This hyaluronic acid treatment is not intended to provide immediate volume such as other dermal fillers. Skin Boosters will provide hydration and a blurring effect of fine lines and wrinkles without adding volume. Skin Boosters helps with skin rejuvenation by moisturizing the skin from the inside while stimulating new collagen production.

At FCP Dermatology, Skin Boosters are performed by our Double Board-Certified Dermatologist Dr. Kristy Bailey. This is an advanced procedure which should only be performed by a trained Dermatologist.

Skin Booster Treatment Experience

What To Expect During a Skin Rejuvenation Treatment

Skin Boosters are done via microinjections to the treatment area in a minimally invasive way. Three treatments are typically recommended four weeks apart for best results. You will notice an improvement in texture, and elasticity, with a reduced look of fine lines and wrinkles. Your skin will appear luminous and this effect will improve with each treatment session.

Before the Skin Rejuvenation procedure – Before your Skin Boosters procedure, a complete examination and personalized patient evaluation will be completed. Photographs will be taken to assess each patient’s unique facial features before and after the treatment.

During the Skin Rejuvenation procedure –The treatment is virtually painless and minimally invasive. Small doses of hyaluronic acid are micro-injected into the skin to penetrate the deepest skin layers to rejuvenate it from the inside out. Each session lasts between 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the area to be treated. An initial protocol of 3 sessions with a one-month interval between them is recommended.

After the procedure – A small bruise may appear which disappears after a few days. Patients can immediately return to their daily activities. It is advisable to complement the treatment with good sun protection and proper hydration to prolong the effects.

The Results –Results can be seen immediately after the treatment, although maximum effects will be seen after the 3rd session. The effect lasts between six months to a year but varies between patients. It is recommended to maintain results with a treatment every 6-12 months.

Skin Booster Treatment FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions about Skin Boosters

Skin Boosters are a type of injectable treatment that improves the overall hydration, texture, and elasticity of the skin. They typically consist of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps retain moisture and promote skin health.

Skin Boosters work by injecting hyaluronic acid directly into the skin. The hyaluronic acid molecules attract and hold water, providing deep hydration to the treated area. This improves skin quality, reduces fine lines, and enhances skin elasticity.

Skin Boosters are commonly used on the face, but they can also be applied to other areas such as the neck, décolletage, and hands. They are particularly effective in areas with fine lines, dullness, or dryness.

Each syringe of Skin Boosters contains lidocaine, which provides a numbing effect as the procedure begins. Overall, the procedure is very quick and is well tolerated by patients.

This will depend on the lifestyle, age and skin type of each individual. However, on average, the results last up to 1 year.

Skin Boosters should not be performed during pregnancy or lactation.

Some mild side effects may occur after the procedure such as: 

- Skin irritation and redness in the treated area.
- Tenderness or swelling.
- Small bruises

This treatment should be performed by a physician experienced with Skin Boosters, such as a Double Board-Certified Dermatologist.

Skin Boosters can be performed as a single treatment, but can also be done in combination with other medical-aesthetic treatments, such as hyaluronic acid fillers, botox, lasers, peels and more.

Skin boosters are considered a cosmetic treatment which is not covered by insurance providers

Skin Boosters are generally suitable for individuals who want to improve skin hydration, texture, and overall appearance. However, they may not be suitable for those with certain medical conditions, pregnant or breastfeeding women, or individuals with a history of allergic reactions. Consultation with a qualified healthcare professional is necessary to determine suitability.

Some of the areas ideal for skin boosters:
● Lower face
● Neck
● Neckline/Chest

We recommend patients start with 3 treatments, 4 weeks apart. Depending on the patient's goals and unique facial structures, more sessions may be needed. Maintenance sessions are recommended every 6-12 months.

The cost of Skin Booster treatments can vary depending the severity of the issues treated and the number of sessions needed. At FCP Dermatology, every patient receives a customized consultation before treatment.
