The success of your client’s treatment is determined two weeks before their appointment.
That statement is quite jarring when you first hear it, like the skincare equivalent of Inception, but it’s straightforward once you flesh it out. We can’t say the same for Christopher Nolan’s critically acclaimed blockbuster.
Your client’s pre-treatment prep work can dramatically impact the results they see in clinic, which is why it’s important to arm them with the right knowledge before they pay you a visit. You could instruct them to double down on the SPF or increase their hydration levels with moisturisers and serums in their bathroom cabinets. This is better than nothing, but you still have limited control over the concentration or efficacy of the products they use.
The solution? Supply your clients with serums with highly active ingredients that you know work and remain stable outside of perfect conditions. FILLMED’s Booster range features Mix n Boost Technology to keep its products performing at their best. As these serums are highly active, they are kept in separate compartments until they are ready to be used. You’ll hear a distinct click on the first use. This is the sound of the chambers breaking, meaning the ingredients have been mixed together.
The genius packaging allows for the highly active ingredients to remain potent, each with a 10-day shelf life. Each pack of Boosters comes in a 3 x 10mL pack to work as a 30 day highly intensive at-home treatment, or a three 10-day skin refresh program.
The FILLMED Booster range targets the most common skin concerns such as hydration, wrinkles, pigmentation, blemishes and skin laxity, but they can also be used to supercharge your in-clinic treatments. This is how the founder of The Skin Philosophy, Rosita Ghazavi, likes to use them in her Sydney clinic.
“Our clients love FILLMED Booster products, and so do I. The most consistent feedback we hear is that the products are beautifully light-weight, offer a wonderful hydrating effect, brighten the skin, successfully reduce fine lines, plump the skin, and are able to reduce pigmentation and large pores,” she said.
There are a total of five boosters in the range; Hyrda-Booster, Time-Booster, Lift-Booster, Bright-Booster and Balance-Booster. Rosita uses three of them to help her clients get optimal results from their treatment.
Bright Boost improves brightness, homogeneity and smoothness with 10% Glycolic Acid, 2.5% Phytic acid and 1% melanin-blocking agent Hexylresorcinol. Rosita says:
“I advise my clients to use Bright Booster two weeks before any treatment, mainly if they are booked in for a laser treatment or a deep facial peel.
Laser and deep facials can induce an increase in melanin production beneath the skin’s surface, making it appear darker in some patches. It is essential to reduce melanin production before your appointment so that the heat produced during a laser or a facial treatment doesn’t exacerbate or induce blotchy skin discolouration.
Bright Booster is composed of multiple active ingredients, including hexylresorcinol, which is a melanin-blocking agent. This can effectively prepare your skin to achieve the best results following treatment.”
Time-Booster smoothes wrinkles and fine lines while improving skin tone with 0.3% Retinol, 0.5% Hyaluronic acid and 5% Aloe Vera gel to soothe the skin. Rosita says:
“Time-Booster is best used before a Vitamin A facial. Vitamin A is a potent vitamin which can irritate the skin if it hasn’t been exposed to it before. For this reason, we recommend all of our clients use Time-Booster two weeks before their Vitamin A facial. This will allow the skin, via gradual exposure, to get used to and tolerate Vitamin A.
On the flip side, I recommend our clients avoid this product before a laser treatment as it can make the skin increasingly photosensitive. We also recommend avoiding the Time-Booster or Vitamin A containing products in the ten days following a laser treatment for the same reason.”
Hydra-Booster improves hydration and plumps the skin with 2.5% Hyaluronic Acid and 0.5% Ceramide NP, a moisture lock agent. Rosita says the Hydra-Booster is best-used post-treatment:
“I love to use Hydra-Booster following a laser, ultrasound, superficial or deep facial treatment as they temporarily leave your skin feeling dry and dehydrated. Hydra-Booster is a quick, effective method for rehydrating and delivering vital moisture back to your skin.”
