Aesthetic treatment using skin hydration boosters

Skin hydration boosters are prescription-only medicines that must be administered by registered healthcare practitioners. If you are unsure whether a particular practitioner is registered in Australia, you can check the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency website. It is recommended that you prepare for your first consultation by thinking through any questions you may have about the treatment and the outcomes.
