As we age, our skin experience loss of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid that is present in the body. You can start to see a decrease in skin elasticity, more visible skin pigmentation, fine facial lines appearing and a dull-looking complexion. You may also be suffering from dehydrated skin, where your skin’s water content is depleted, resulting in a less supple appearance and may be accompanied by an excessive amount of oil on the skin’s surface.
Thus, it is essential to ensure your skincare regime contains hydrating products that can replenish and revitalize the skin, and nourish the skin’s barrier to improve hydration levels. There are also aesthetic treatments available to address your skin needs, such as Skin Boosters.
What’s in the Skin Boosters treatment?
They are injection treatments that contain hyaluronic acid, a natural component that is critical to smooth, radiant skin. It is a naturally occurring molecule that promotes hydration that is associated with plump and youthful looking skin. The treatment is delivered through small micro-injections to restore hydration in the skin and retain moisture. Therefore, it is not dependant on absorption, unlike topical moisturisers and creams, and is able to work efficiently and immediately.
Hyaluronic acid can absorb water up to 200 times its weight and swell, which results in great hydration to the skin. As such, it helps to increase the skins elasticity, reduce fine lines and smoothen the skin. The skin ageing process can also be slowed down or reversed, when hyaluronic acid is reintroduced into the skin.
New collagen formation can be stimulated, thus increasing the elastin levels. This in turns improves skin hydration and cell function from within, leaving skin to look more rejuvenated and radiant.
Who is Skin Boosters for?
Anyone can benefit from the treatment, but people with ageing skin or dry and dull complexion can gain the most results. Those who are already undergoing acne scar removal in Singapore can also go for the Skin Boosters treatments, which helps in improving the appearance of acne scars.
Benefits of the treatment include:
- Improvement in skin texture and tone
- Increase in skin hydration levels
- Skin looks brighter with more luminosity
- Reduced wrinkles and fine lines
Skin Boosters are not only beneficial for ageing skin, it can also be used as a preventive measure to maintain the skin’s collagen production and hydration levels before the natural ageing process kicks in. It can be used on the facial areas as well as other body parts such as neck, décolletage and hands.
How is the procedure like?
The treatment does not involve any incisions or surgical procedures, therefore there will be minimal pain. Before the treatment begins, a numbing cream is applied over the treated area to reduce the pain. There may be injection-related side effects such as swelling, bruising and pin-prick marks which are temporary. Results vary for individuals but typically, it will last for 6 months onwards. Patients can also do subsequent treatments every 6 months.
