Skin Boosters 水光针

Ageing process starts as early as early 20s. It causes our skin to lose fat, collagen, hyaluronic acid and water. On top of that, environmental factors such as harmful UV rays, prolonged hours of work and stress also contribute to skin ageing.  All these result in dry, wrinkled and dull skin. 

How do we improve this?

The answer is Skin Booster Treatment, or commonly known as 水光针。

What is Skin Booster 水光针 treatment?

Skin Booster contains hyaluronic acid, a vital ingredient for hydration. Its primary function is to restore hydration in the skin, resulting in long-lasting improvement in the skin health and skin quality. Hyaluronic acid is able to retain a significant amount of moisture just below the skin surface where it is most needed. A well-hydrated skin gradually becomes smoother, fuller with more refined pores and scars.

How is it done?

Skin booster is injected just below your skin surface by a series of micro-injections where it can function best by improving hydration and collagen production. The whole procedure only takes 15-30 minutes.

Is it painful?

This may vary for an individual. Numbing cream is applied over the treated area before the treatment to minimize discomfort. Skin booster itself contains anaesthesia (painkiller) which makes the treatment more tolerable.

Is it safe? Downtime?

Hyaluronic acid is safe to be injected into the skin. Adverse reaction to hyaluronic acid is extremely rare. Right after the treatment, you may experience needle marks, redness and sometimes bruising. Most people can resume daily work immediately.

For potential risks and complications, please consult a doctor to discuss in detail.

Am I suitable for this treatment?

Skin booster treatment is suitable for all women and men who are looking to improve their skin quality. Due to its hydration capability, it is very suitable for people with dry and damaged skin.

Which areas can be treated?

The most commonly treated area is the face, especially under the eyes where fine lines and dark circles are obvious, and the cheeks and forehead which are prone to sun damage and dryness.

Skin boosters can also be injected into these areas:

  1. Neck areas – to improve skin quality and necklines
  2. Back of the hands – to improve the sunken areas and reduce wrinkles
  3. Lips – to improve lip hydration and reduce fine lines
  4. Décolletage – to improve the skin quality and fine lines

How long can it last?

Results may vary from person to person.  An initial course of 3-6 treatments, 3-4 weeks apart is recommended for optimal outcome. After the initial course of treatment, you can have it done once every 4-6 monthly for maintenance.

Generally, result from skin booster lasts for about 6 months.
