What is Skin Booster and how can it help with my skin?

As we grow older, our skin loses collagen, fat, hyaluronic acid and water. This inevitable process begins as early as 20-28 years of age. The long and stressful work hours in Singapore that define most of our lives also result in skin and pores that are dry, baggy, rough and wrinkled. The skin moisturizers that many of us resort to are not an effective way of solving these problems. So, what are skin boosters?

Aging is an inevitable process, and with every passing year,  our skin tends to lose its vital deposits of collagen, hyaluronic acid, fat,  and water. This degenerative process can begin even at relatively low age ranges of 20-28 years . To make matters worse, the unending work hours, coupled with the stress and strain of modern life, affect our skin and pores, giving them a a dry, rough, baggy, and wrinkled look. Unfortunately, the skin moisturizers that we put our trust in, leave much to be desired when it comes to rejuvenatin the skin’s health and looks. The solution ultimately lies in a product called Skin Boosters.

How does it work? 

Skin Booster (水光针) treatment works on the skin by micro-injecting stabilised hyaluronic acid (HA) below the skin surface.  A gel-like substance produced naturally in the body, stabilized HA balances hydration levels in the skin, by absorbing water. The skin Boosters treatment delivers deep skin hydration to the affected skin areas.

In this way, skin gets  smoothened from the inside, minimising  the formation of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. Simultaneously, it hydrates your skin, to enhance texture, firmness, and elasticity.

This treatment can also help increase collagen content in our skin as well. As the deposits of the skin boosters help increase fibroblast activity under the skin. 

Skin Booster Treatment Benefits:

Since the dermal fillers used in Skin Booster treatment, are very fluid, the end result is a very smooth and fine skin quality.
More firm and youthful skin is developed as collagen and elastin production, is stimulated in the body.
The treatment is ideal for almost all patients and different skin types.
Gold standard skin hydrator is appropriate for achieving a radiant and glowing skin.

How often should the treatment be repeated?

While substantial results are evident immediately the first session, our recommendation is to spread the Restylane Skin Boosters (水光针) treatment over 3 initial sessions within a 4-week period. On completion of the initial 3-treatment program, lasting effects can be maintained through a follow up section every six months..

Doctor’s Advice & Recommendation

The treatment involves targeting the tissues lying just below the skin surface, with a series of micro-injections using an advanced micro-injection machine.  These injections are basically meant to activate fibroblasts which are special cells that stimulate the growth of  fresh collagen and elastin. The fibroblasts also deliver hyaluronic acid to dry and thirsty skin, to develop healthy pores, and radiant, plump. Subject to the patient’s specific conditions and needs, the procedure can take between 20-40 minutes, to complete.

In order to control sensation of pain and discomfort, a topical application of numbing cream is made to the treatment areas. Incidentally, the SkinBooster also contains anaesthetic properties, adding to the safety-quotient of  the treatment. Mild bruising or swelling might occur,  but these  usually disappear in a couple of days, after treatment. If the conditions  persist, approach your doctor for advice.
