Wake Up and Glow with SL Aesthetic Clinic’s Skinboosters in Singapore
Regain your natural glow with this skin treatment from Singapore’s SL Aesthetic Clinic. Skinboosters is a type of injectable treatment that can help with deep skin hydration, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and help you achieve a make-up free glow.
Also known as 水光针 in Mandarin, Skinboosters is directly translated to mean “water bright injection” – a succinct and apt description of this skin boosting treatment.
Important note: Skinboosters refers to a treatment which specifically uses hyaluronic acid. It can only be performed by a doctor.
Skinboosters can benefit skin dullness and dry skin while giving it a natural “glow”:
- Make-up free, Korean-like radiance
- Smoothen out fine lines and wrinkles
- Lasting hydration that hydrates from the inside-out
- Minimised pore size
- Reduction in the appearance of acne scars
- Stimulation of collagen production 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 a six-monthly treatment
The Skinboosters treatment process at SL Aesthetic 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 can reduce the signs of ageing on your appearance.
At SL Aesthetic Clinic, the Skinboosters treatment process involves injecting the fillers with a series of microinjections using an injector gun.
The advantages of the Injector Gun includes:
1. Controlled delivery of Skinboosters; fillers are injected at a uniform amount and at a desired depth
2. Stabilised delivery of Skinboosters with the gun ensures downtime is minimised as much as possible
The recommended course of treatment for Skinboosters is an initial start-up treatment, three sessions each spaced 2-4 weeks apart. For more visible 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, restoring skin hydration, and minimising pore size, the side effects of these Skinboosters is minimal. After each treatment session, some patients may experience minor bruising, swelling and numbness which can subside after a few days.
Results, downtime, and recovery vary by the individual. Speak to our doctors to know more.
