Achieve a Glowy Complexion With Hyaluronic Acid Injection
Nowadays, it isn’t an exaggeration to say that Skin Boosters, also known as “水光针” has taken the world by storm. Originally popular amongst the Koreans & Taiwanese to give their skin (especially their faces) a dewy, glowy look with a deep-skin hydration.
What are Skin Boosters?
Skin boosters are basically filler treatments which helps to improve your skin’s firmness, hydration & luminosity through a series of micro-injections of an extremely soft Hyaluronic Acid fillers into your skin.
Hyaluronic acid is able to hold 1,000 times its molecular weight in water (yes, 1,000 times)! Other than improving your skin’s hydration, Hyaluronic acid is also able to:
- • Reduce Inflammation
- • Reduces pore size
- • Smoothen your skin
- • Reduces fine lines & wrinkles
- • Improves acne scars
- • Provides you with a brighter & more luminous skin
- • Improve skin elasticity
- • Hasten the healing of wounds
- • Assists in the production of collagen
- • Provides anti-oxidative benefits
How are the Skin Boosters administered?
Numbing cream is typically applied to the areas to be treated beforehand to minimize discomfort. Next, the skin boosters are placed underneath your skin either using manual injections or with an injector device. These tiny deposits of skin boosters act like water reservoirs to absorb & retain moisture for long-term hydration. This increase in hydration results in a brighter, dewy, plump & supple skin.
In Aesthetics Central Clinic, our doctors are able to use both methods to administer the skin boosters. We’ll strongly recommend manual injections as there’s better precision & control of the depth, resulting in a better outcome. Furthermore, on average the injector gun will waste approximately 20% of the skin booster (which aren’t delivered into your skin). This doesn’t give patients the best results & also wastes their money.
Brands of Skin Boosters that we carry in our clinic
We firmly believe in carrying the best products for our patients. Presently, our clinic carries the top 3 performing skin boosters: Juvederm Volite, Restylane Vital & Teosyal Redensity I.
The Juvederm Volite Skin boosters contains 13mg/ml of cross-linked hyaluronic acid inside each syringe. The uniqueness of the Juvederm Volite is that it only requires 1 treatment compared to the other skin boosters which usually requires at least 3 consecutively monthly treatments. This is due to its unique cross-linkage & patented Vycross technology by Allergan (the manufacturers of the original “purple” Botox & Juvederm range of fillers).
Hence, less time spent in the clinic! 1 treatment of the Juvederm Volite is sufficient to give your skin that glowy look & skin deep hydration for up to 9 months!
Restylane Vital/Vital Light
The Restylane series of skin boosters were one of the first to be introduced to our market. They’re partially cross-linked hyaluronic acid chains & each syringe contains 20mg/ml of hyaluronic acid.
For informational purposes, “cross-linkages” basically means how dense the hyaluronic acid chains are in each skin booster. Hence, the more “cross-linked” the hyaluronic acid is, the less space there is for the water molecules to attach to. The bright side is that the higher the “cross-linkage”, the longevity of the skin booster increases.
Teosyal Redensity I
The Teosyal Redensity I is a non-cross linked skin booster which is made in Switzerland. Each syringe contains 15mg/ml of hyaluronic acid. The great thing about the Teosyal Redensity I is that is also contains 3 powerful antioxidants, 1 vitamin, 2 minerals & 8 amino acids! The key antioxidant will be the Glutathione which is the main ingredient in whitening drips (which isn’t allowed in Singapore).
In a nutshell, the Teosyal Redensity I skin booster gives you that deep skin hydration AND fairer skin!
