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.
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:
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.
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.
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.
Skin booster treatment is suitable for all women and men who are looking to improve their skin quality. Due to its hydration capability, it is very suitable for people with dry and damaged skin.
The most commonly treated area is the face, especially under the eyes where fine lines and dark circles are obvious, and the cheeks and forehead which are prone to sun damage and dryness.
Skin boosters can also be injected into these areas:
Results may vary from person to person. An initial course of 3-6 treatments, 3-4 weeks apart is recommended for the optimal outcome. After the initial course of treatment, you can have it done once every 4-6 monthly for maintenance.
Generally, result from skin booster lasts for about 6 months.
Skin booster is a powerful skin rejuvenation treatment on its own. It is also ideal for sustaining and maximising the results of other anti-ageing skin treatment such as:
As everyone is different, our Aesthetic Doctor will specially design a personalized treatment plan just for you during the consultation which can help you to achieve your desired results according to your facial proportions.
Treatment using skin boosters/Profhilo/Rejuran is a safe procedure. The main aim of these is to improve skin quality. Skin boosters and Profhilo contain hyaluronic acid (HA) while Rejuran’s main component is Salmon DNA. HA is necessary to maintain the suppleness and hydration of our skin.
Profhilo is a newer method of introducing HA to our skin – it contains twice the concentration of HA compared to traditional skin boosters and is a quicker treatment to administer. Salmon DNA on the other hand, is a powerful component that drives cellular repair and regeneration. It is used to improve overall skin quality and can be used to target scars and improve undereye appearance.
The areas we commonly treat with injectables include the forehead, temples, under-eyes, cheeks, lips, chin, neck and hands.
Before the treatment, our doctor will go through a consultation with you to understand your medical history, your desired results, and to go through any questions you may have.
The procedure is performed by our doctor under sterile conditions and takes about 15 minutes. Prior to the procedure, we will numb the areas treated so you will be comfortable during the treatment (topical anaesthesia).
Immediately after, you may experience some temporary swelling and bruising. Otherwise, you may return back to most normal activities, except for swimming/high intensity activities. To prevent any bruising, avoid alcohol and multi-vitamins/supplements 1 – 2 days before and after the procedure.
The results from injectable treatments usually come on 1-2 weeks later. We recommend a course of treatment every month for a total of 3 months, after which maintenance can be performed every 9-12 months as desired.
The cost for the procedure depends on the type and amount of injectable used, starting from $498 onwards. Profhilo price is controlled at $1000 per syringe. (Prices quoted are before GST)
