HYALURONIC ACID SKIN BOOSTERS – "HYDRATING AND REJUVENATING MICROINJECTIONS”
Over time, the quality of your NECK skin 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.
This treatment 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. What you and everyone else will see is a wonderful and radiant skin.

- Glowing radiant skin (less tired-looking face)

- Improvement of acne scar marks – ‘dark pigmented scars’ or ‘pitted scars’
- Skin lifting, firming and tightening
- Refining of large pores
- Improvement of sensitive skin (easily gets redness or peeling of the skin)
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Where can Skinboosters be injected?
DrD: Skinboosters 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.
2. How is Skinboosters injected and what is the process like?
DrD: Firstly, we will apply numbing cream over full face after makeup removal and thorough cleansing, for about 20-30minutes. Our doctor will then perform this procedure using a device called ‘vital injector’, via 5 fine needles to deliver the product. The benefit of using vital injector is such that a consistent depth of injection will be maintained and bruise and post-injection redness will be reduced. The full face will be injected throughout including under-eye areas to target fine lines.
3. How many times do I have to inject?
DrD: A typical treatment program with Skinboosters is made up of three initial treatment sessions with 2 to 4 weeks apart. Usually, results will be visible 2 weeks after each procedure. The initial 3-treatment program is done once and subsequently, one treatment about every 6 -12 months is recommended.
4. How long can Skinboosters last?
DrD: Do note that every treatment outcome is also affected by an individual’s lifestyle. For example, smoking, late-night sleep, or inadequate care of facial skin can affect the longevity of Skinboosters. Usually, the effect of hydration and radiance lasts for 6-8months, however, collagen will still buildup after a few months later. Hence, the improvement of skin texture will still continue.
5. What will I expect after this procedure?
DrD: You will expect minimal downtime redness or pin-point bruises for 2-7 days, depends on how good your skin is. There will be no pain after the injection. It will not leave any permanent scars. Our doctor advises stopping consuming any supplements and Chinese traditional medicine temporary after this procedure, to speed up recovery.
6. Which particular brand does the doctor recommend?
DrD: It all depends on the individual’s skin condition and what effect is needed for rejuvenation. Our clinic carries a wide range of HSA approved brands such as Restylane, Belotero, Juvederm Volite, Teosyal, and Revanesse to ensure safety and efficacy.
