Hyaluronic Acid Skin Boosters
Over time, the condition of the skin on your face changes – collagen and elastic fibres disintegrate, and the function of the body’s own hyaluronic acid (HA) change, making your skin drier, rougher and less elastic.
Hyaluronic Acid Skin Boosters are designed to deliver skin glow and deep skin hydration, nourishing the skin and resulting in a more fresh and natural appearance. This leaves your face revitalised, giving the skin a naturally fresh appearance.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?
How does the hyaluronic acid injection work?
The hyaluronic acid injection involves a series of hydrating microinjections of long-lasting hyaluronic acid – also called stabilised HA – a water-loving substance found naturally in the body that well maintains hydration in the skin. Stabilised HA is a soft, gel-like substance that absorbs water and brings deep skin hydration to the treated areas, giving it improved firmness, elasticity and smoothness.
If you’re looking for a skin booster, Singapore is home to Dr D Aesthetics – an aesthetic medical clinic with a team of friendly doctors, fully trained to carry out the hyaluronic acid injection and other professional services.

Frequently Asked Questions
Skin boosters can be used to improve the general skin quality of your face but also to improve exposed and sensitive areas such as your neck, décolletage and hands, as well as areas with acne-scarred skin.
This injection is most commonly used on the lower face and is a great way to treat smokers’ lines. Skin boosters can significantly improve the texture of the skin on the chin and lower cheeks, in addition to the area around the mouth.
Firstly, a numbing cream will be applied to the face after makeup removal and a thorough cleansing, for around 20 to 30 minutes. Your doctor will then perform this procedure manually or using a device called a ‘vital injector’, using five fine needles to inject the substance. The benefit of using a vital injector is such that a consistent depth of injection will be maintained, reducing post-injection redness and bruising. The full face will be injected throughout the session, including the skin under the eyes, targeting any fine lines.
A typical treatment program with skin boosters is made up of three initial treatment sessions, leaving three to four weeks between each. Usually, results will be visible two weeks after each procedure. The initial, three-treatment program is done once and subsequently, one treatment every six to 12 months is recommended.
It’s worth noting that the treatment outcome depends on each individual’s lifestyle; for example, smoking, lack of sleep and inadequate facial skin care can all affect the longevity of skin boosters. Usually, the effect of hydration and radiance lasts for six to eight months – however, collagen will still build up a few months later, allowing the texture of the skin to continue seeing improvements.
You can expect minimal downtime after receiving the Hyaluronic Acid Skin Boosters, but may experience redness or pin-point bruising for anything between two day and a week, depending on the condition of your skin. You shouldn’t experience any pain after being injected and the procedure will not leave any permanent scars.
At Dr D Aesthetics, we advise you to stop consuming any supplements and Chinese traditional medicine temporarily after this procedure to speed up the recovery.
This depends on your skin condition and the effect needed for rejuvenation. Our clinic carries a wide range of HSA approved brands such as Restylane, Belotero, Juvederm Volite, Teosyal and Revanesse, ensuring safety and efficacy.
‘Restylane’ skin boosters are natural and have been tested and documented safe with proven efficacy. They have also received FDA approval with over 20 million treatments conducted worldwide. Restylane products contain stabilized hyaluronic acid of non-animal origin, which closely resembles the natural hyaluronic acid in our skin, reducing the risk of inflammatory reactions.
Volite is an innovative, injectable treatment which improves skin quality for anywhere up to nine months. THis hyaluronic acid gel is injected into the middle layers of the skin in multiple areas to hydrate the skin from the inside out. This treatment is suitable for any age and skin type.
