Glow In Skin Perfection with SL Clinic’s Skinboosters in Singapore
Regain your natural glow with this advanced treatment from Singapore’s SL Clinic. Skinboosters are the latest trend in deep skin hydration, reducing wrinkles and fine lines, and in achieving a make-up free glow.
Widely popular in East Asia, Skinboosters’ Mandarin monicker 水光针 is directly translated to “water bright injection” – a succinct and apt description of this skin boosting treatment.
At SL Clinic, we offer Skinboosters in both dermal filler formulations: Vital and Vital Light. Vital is used for more mature skin requiring more intensive hydration, while those with younger skin can achieve a beautiful glow with Vital Light. Both formulations are suitable for all skin types.
Important note: Skinboosters refers to a treatment which specifically uses the fillers of its originating brand. It can only be performed by a doctor.
Skinboosters treats dull and/or mature skin, while giving a natural glow:
➢ Achieve a Korean-like radiant glow, free of make up!
➢ Smoothen out fine lines and wrinkles; firmer skin
➢ Long-lasting hydration that works from the inside-out
➢ Pores are minimised
➢ Improvement in appearance of acne scars
➢ Collagen production stimulated over time
✓ Skinboosters is suitable for young adults wanting a natural glow and minimising skin imperfections, and also great in rejuvenating and smoothening mature skin
✓ With an initial start-up course of three sessions each spaced 2-4 weeks apart, Skinboosters results can be maintained with an easy six-monthly treatment
Skinboosters are approved for use in the European community and in many countries in Asia, including Singapore.
The Skinboosters treatment process at SL Clinic, Singapore
Hyaluronic acid is what keeps your skin smooth, hydrated, and elastic but as you age, the body’s supply of this youthful chemical depletes and this is in part what causes the skin to become dry, rough and loose. By replenishing the skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid with rejuvenating microinjections of Skinboosters, you are effectively turning back the clock on your appearance.
At SL Clinic, the Skinboosters treatment process involves injecting the fillers with a series of microinjections using an advanced “Injector Gun” rather than by hand.
The advantages of the Injector Gun includes:
1. Controlled delivery of Skinboosters; fillers are injected at a uniform amount and at a precise depth
2. Stabilised delivery of Skinboosters with the gun ensures minimal downtime compared to treatment by hand
The recommended course of treatment for Skinboosters is an initial start-up treatment, three sessions each spaced 2-4 weeks apart. For best results, one treatment is recommended every six months to maintain the levels of hyaluronic acid. The hyaluronic acid works by absorbing water to hydrate the skin and improve firmness, smoothness, and elasticity.
Because it’s a non-surgical method for reducing wrinkles, the side effects of these Skinboosters is very minimal. After each treatment session, some patients may experience minor bruising, swelling and numbness which can subside after a few days.
Who is best suited for this treatment
This treatment can be used to manage both moderate to severe wrinkling and is thus suitable for those looking to reduce deep stubborn wrinkles or scars without having to go under the knife. Patients can expect to see a substantial reduction in their skin imperfections as well as an improved overall complexion. As with any procedure or treatment, results can vary by individual.
Skinboosters are commonly treated in the European community and are approved by many health authorities for their use in Asia, including Singapore. They’re minimally invasive, and can be done at the SL Clinic premise with slight numbing.
Depending on your skin condition, you’ll see improvements in the first treatment. For first-timers a recommended course of treatment for Skinboosters is an initial start-up treatment, three sessions each spaced 2-4 weeks apart. For best results, one treatment is recommended every six months to maintain the levels of hyaluronic acid.
After assessing your needs, the doctor can perform the treatment in approximately half an hour or so, subject to the doctor’s schedule. Otherwise, a later appointment can be made for the procedure itself.
Upon completion of recommended course, results show excellent improvements over a period of time and can be maintained with six-monthly treatments. Results vary by the individual and lifestyle choices.
Numbing cream is applied prior to treatment. Pain is minimal during the treatment, though some patients experience slight discomfort. Post-procedure, there may be some temporary pain.
Injection related side effects, such as temporary swelling, bruising and pin-marks may occur. This will depend on your skin’s sensitivity and the skills of the doctor. Many patients experience mild swelling and bruising.
Skinboosters should be done preferably a week before an important event.
Skinboosters are safe for most healthy adults. As with all medical procedures, you should be sure to disclose all of your medical history and current habits such as smoking and use of blood-thinners, medications, birth control pills, or supplements.
Skinboosters may be unsuitable in the following circumstances:
- Patients with unrealistic expectations, such as those who seek complete eradication of acne scars

- Active bacterial or viral/fungal skin infections
- Overly sensitive skin conditions such as eczema
- Prior ionising radiation to the area to be treated
