Skin Boosters 水光针
For Radiant, Refreshed and Hydrated Skin.
Clinically effective and long lasting Hyaluronic acid treatment.
Why Restylane SKINBOOSTERS™?
Restylane® SKINBOOSTERS™ 水光针 provide balance and hydration to rejuvenate and restore your skin from the inside out.
Skin Boosters 水光针 are made from a natural hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance widely distributed in the human body, including the skin, connective tissues and nerves. By providing support to the matrix of the skin, facilitating the passage of nutrients across the skin and hydrating the skin, hyaluronic acid is an essential component of skin.
We lose about 1% of our hyaluronic acid per year from age 28. When the skin is exposed to ultra violet rays, there is damage to skin cells and an increased break down of hyaluronic acid, resulting in skin damage, dehydration and defective skin repair. Topical creams containing hyaluronic acid molecules are too large to penetrate the skin, thus treatments are more effective and long-lasting.
Restoring Skin Quality and Hydration
In its natural state, hyaluronic acid gets broken down rapidly within 24-48 hours. Restylane® SKINBOOSTERS™ were developed to be more stable with cross-linking technology to enhance longevity of hyaluronic acid within your skin. By introducing micro droplets of skin boosters within your skin, you will experience longer lasting results.

How is the Skin Booster Treatment Carried Out?
The treatment is designed to improve your skin quality by hydrating your skin from within and increasing its firmness, elasticity and smoothness over time.
Your Skin Booster in Singapore takes 30-45 minutes, and an anaesthetic cream is applied prior to the procedure.
Microdroplets of Skin Boosters Restylane 水光针 are introduced under the skin with a specialized delivery needle system. Our products contain lidocaine that further minimizes injection site pain and enhance treatment experience.
The injection of 1-2mls of skin boosters is usually required for full face treatment. This versatile treatment allows special attention to be paid to specific areas that lack hydration and require reinvigoration.

Restylane® SKINBOOSTERS™ contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic that reduces most of the discomfort. Your healthcare practitioner can also apply a local anesthetic on the skin surface before the treatment.
After the treatment you might experience some discomfort such as redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising and tenderness at the treatment site. The described discomfort is the side effect expected after a treatment. They are usually mild and disappear after a few days to one week.
