Skinboosters are a great way to restore lost hydration seen in dry skin, reduce fine lines and improve overall skin health.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our skin that helps maintained skin’s moisture level and hence its suppleness and elasticity, keeps our skin well hydrated and youthful looking. It is able to hold up to a thousand times its own weight in water, thus producing amazing benefits for dehydrated skin when used as a key component in skincare products.
For best results, hyaluronic acid can be used liberally wherever your skin is dry and needs hydrating. In addition, it isn’t irritating and wouldn’t compromise the effectiveness of other skincare ingredients which you may be using together with it. The molecule however, is quite large and can’t fully penetrate the outer layers of the skin to fill fine lines and wrinkles when used topically.
This can now be easily overcome by injecting a particular type of hyaluronic acid filler known as Skinboosters directly into areas where it’s most needed, giving treated skins that plumped up suppleness everyone desire. Apart from providing a dermal oasis for intensive hydration, Skinboosters stimulate collagen growth to minimize pore size and improve overall skin tone for a naturally rejuvenated look.
We have the option of a device known as the Vital injector which uses microcomputer algorithms to distribute the Skinboosters in precise, calculated quantities over the entire treated area, providing improved control for better delivery and minimizing patient’s discomfort. Acting as if a hydrating mask is placed directly deep into the dermis, Skinboosters restore hydrobalance by replenishing moisture to optimal levels in our skin, while stimulating collagen formation for long term benefits.
Am I a suitable candidate for Skinboosters?
Just like water is universally beneficial of all, anyone can benefit from the treatment. In particular, people with dry, aged or dull skin and large pores will see the most improvement. Acne scarring will also be less noticeable with regular skinboosters microinjections.
What is the procedure like?
Numbing cream is applied prior to treatment for 10 to 15 minutes to minimize any pain or discomfort. Multiple microinjections are then administered manually or via the injector gun by our trained doctors under a constant stream of cold air emitted from the Zimmer air cooler to make the whole procedure even more tolerable.
What kind of downtime do I expect?
As with all procedures involving needles and injection, there may be mild redness, pin-prick marks and possible bruising. These symptoms are temporary and will resolve spontaneously without any further intervention. The degree of such side effects will depend on how sensitive a person’s skin is, the delivery method employed, and the skill, expertise and experience of the provider. Bumpiness on the skin can occur but generally resolve quickly with some gentle massage. You may wish to undergo an add-on HealLite treatment which significantly shortens the recovery time.
What kind of results will I see?
Results vary with individuals, but typically, non-cross linked hyaluronic acid skinboosters tend to show results after about 1-2 weeks, with improved skin hydration, smaller pore size, minimized fine lines, firmness and skin luminosity.
How often do I need to get the treatment done?
A primary course of 3 treatments, done 3-4 weeks apart is recommended for optimal result. The initial intense regime is to ensure that the skin is saturated with hyaluronic acid, and that the treatment kickstarts collagen production process to reverse skin aging. After the intensive course of treatment, you can repeat the treatment every 4-6 months to maintain or further enhance your skin quality
