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 skin, resulting in long-lasting improvement in the skin health and skin quality. Hyaluronic acid can 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.
WHY SKIN BOOSTER?
Skin Booster is an anti-ageing treatment that does not take up much of your time. The treatment is quick, effective with minimal downtime and the result is long-lasting.
Benefits of Skin Booster:
- Smoother skin
- Complexion enhancement
- Keeps your skin well hydrated
- Refines pores and scars
- Improves fine lines and wrinkles
- Improves skin tone
- Skin brightening and whitening
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? Any 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 their daily work immediately.
For potential risks and complications, please consult a doctor to discuss in detail.
