RADIANT, HYDRATED SKIN - Restylane® SKINBOOSTERS™
Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of your skin that keeps it hydrated and soft. With age, or due to a harsh environment, the hyaluronic acid content in your skin may decrease, and your skin may lose some of its elasticity and hydration.
By doing so, Restylane® SKINBOOSTERS™ restores the natural composition of your skin. Smoothening the skin from the inside and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. At the same time, it creates luminous skin by hydrating your skin and improving its texture, firmness, and elasticity. Notice your skin becomes smooth and hydrated for a refreshed and healthy look.
WHAT IS A SKINBOOSTERS™ TREATMENT?
SKINBOOSTERS™ contains stabilized hyaluronic acid, a vital secret ingredient to smooth and glowing skin. The treatment involves giving a series of tiny injections of hyaluronic acid into the chosen area of the skin. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body and functions to maintain hydration levels in the skin. However, due to aging and exposure to heat and pollution, the hyaluronic acid level in our skin diminishes.
SKINBOOSTERS™ replaces the lost hyaluronic acid in the skin and restores the skin’s firmness, natural hydration and radiance. Hydrated skin has a firm and smooth surface that reflects light in a manner that gives it a glowing, dewy appearance. It also stimulates the production of collagen and improves skin elasticity. Moreover, it reduces open pores, lifts and soothes away lines, and restores your skin tone and youthful volume.
HOW IS Restylane® SKINBOOSTERS™ DIFFERENT?
Restylane® is the world’s first stabilized non-animal HA filler. Since the first product was conceived in the late 1980s, Restylane® continued to innovate and created a range of products to suit all skin types. Restylane® SKINBOOSTERS™ was first created in 2004 to improve skin quality. Further research and improvements were made along the way and Restylane® SKINBOOSTERS™ was officially launched in 2012. To date, more than 20 million Restylane® treatments have been done worldwide.
ARE THERE DIFFERENT TYPES OF HYALURONIC ACIDS?

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GO FOR THIS TREATMENT?
Although you can see good results after the first session, we usually recommend that Restylane® SKINBOOSTERS™ (水光针) treatment be done over 3 initial treatments 4 weeks apart.
Once the initial 3-treatment program is completed, we recommend that you undergo one treatment every 6 months for a long-lasting result. Truth be told, we find that even if you stop the treatment, your skin has already reaped the benefits of this age-reversing treatment, and will always be more youthful than if you haven’t had the procedure done.
Having the procedure done half yearly essentially stops the aging process, so that your skin remains youthful, even in years to come.
IS THIS A COMFORTABLE TREATMENT?
Yes! All of our patients have so far described the treatment as very tolerable. To further enhance your comfort during the procedure, we will apply a topical anesthetic cream on your skin before the treatment
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
After the treatment, most people can continue with their normal work and social activities. There may be subtle injection marks over the face, but this usually lasts less than a week and can be easily covered with makeup.
HOW LONG DO RESULTS LAST?
You can expect the result to last about 9 months after the initial session. If you repeat the treatment 2-3 more times about 4 weeks apart, you are likely to see longer-lasting skin hydrating results that can last for as long as 12 to 18 months.
Results are assured, long-lasting, and supported by 15 years of clinical experience
IS THIS TREATMENT SAFE?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance found in your body. HA is usually found in soft connective tissue, cartilage, skin tissue, and joint fluids. Furthermore, these HA fillers are temporary and they will dissolve about one year after the treatment. Restylane® SKINBOOSTERS™ is clinically proven to provide visible improvements to various skin conditions by improving the elasticity, and luminosity, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
