Skin Booster 水光针
Skin boosters are known to aid in skin hydration, pore reduction, skin brightening and textural improvement.
So you’ve seen and recognized the benefits of skin boosters, and will like to try one for yourself, hoping to hydrate your skin. However, there is a wide range of skin boosters out there in the market, so you can’t help but wonder, “Which type of skin boosters is suitable for you?”
Let’s do a short recap of skin boosters!
Skin boosters are the micro-injection of facial fillers (a naturally-occuring substance called hyaluronic acid) into the dermis layer of the skin, acting as a source of hydration river for the skin. The hyaluronic acid used for skin boosters are different from dermal fillers used for volumizing wrinkles or facial contouring; these hyaluronic acid skin boosters are mostly non-cross-linked. This means that they are very fluid and less viscous than normal dermal fillers, and therefore they do not alter facial contours, neither do they result in permanent small lumps.
Unlike your typical topical moisturizer, whereby a rough estimate of only 30 percent of the beneficial ingredients are absorbed into the skin, these skin boosters moisturize the skin from inside out, ensuring all the ingredients are targeted into the skin. These skin boosters act like micro-droplets of a long-lasting, water-holding humectant to absorb water, giving your skin deep hydration, increase plumpness and improved smoothness. At the same time, the skin boosters are able to rejuvenate your skin, giving it the suppleness you need. This is able to result in a glow to the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines, pores and improve skin tone and texture after the skin booster treatment.
There are main two ways in which skin boosters can be done:
1) The Traditional Injection Method – hand injected by the doctor. With just a syringe and a pair of hands, the doctor administers these skin booster micro-injections. Though this enables the doctor to have more control over clinical outcome, the administering of these injections can be uneven throughout the face, due to human errors.
2) Through an Injector Gun, such as Vital Injector. This machine utilizes a 9 point needle system to deliver a specific amount of hyaluronic acid to a specific depth, while creating a gentle suction of the skin before administering it. This ensures a more even distribution of the hyaluronic acid, and ensures that it is injected into a determined depth into the skin.
What types of skin boosters are available?
The three main types of skin boosters available in the market:
1) Revanesse Pure
3) Teosyal Redensity I
Let’s go through a short summary for each of them, comparing their different advantages!
1) Revanesse Pure
This is the most common type of skin booster. It is made of pure non cross-linked, clear Hyaluronic Acid gel. It is quickly absorbed into the skin, providing the moisture it needs. Revanesse Pure hydrates the skin and restores elasticity for firm, healthy looking skin. Some patients even claimed that upon using this skin booster, they no longer need to apply moisturiser! How convenient is that!
This is the purest type of skin boosters, the most cost-friendly, hence it is recommended for patients with younger skin, or those who are looking for just a boost in hydration level for the skin. In addition, anti-wrinkle medication can be added to this skin booster. When administered in this manner, it helps to give a slight dermalift, also known as microbtx, effect. This gives you additional benefits with lesser cost.
2) Rejuran Hb
This is one of the newest type of skin booster. In addition to the original Hyaluronic Acid gel, it consists of polynucleotide (PN), which is an isolated salmon DNA. This is a broader group of molecules as compared to Polydeoxyribonucleotide, which is more commonly known as PDRN.
The main effects of PN is wound healing and anti-inflammatory. This is because PN has a very similar base structure with humans, and thus help in the role of healing and repairing damaged skin, while reversing the skin age. It is also very safe and compatible with the use in human body without causing any adverse side effects.
As such, Rejuran Hb skin booster is used to achieve smoother, firmer skin while improving skin elasticity and promote collagen formation. It can strengthen foundation layers of the skin and promote regeneration of the skin. It also helps in skin normalization, improving the thickness of the skin while regulating oil production.
Hence, Rejuran Hb Skin booster is suitable for patients who seek to improve their skin laxity, reduce pore size, tighten and firm skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, as it is able to restore aging cells, reversing signs of aging.
3) Teosyal Redensity I
The most popular type of skin boosters is the Teoysal RD1. This skin booster prides themselves in giving you the brightening glow. It contains Glutathione, also known as “the mother of all antioxidants”. Glutathione is a simple molecule that is used to combat free-radicals in the body, reducing oxidative stress and toxins in our body. As such, it can help to improve the health of skin cells, giving the skin to have a radiant glow caused by healthy cells and reduced toxicity.
The main benefit of this type of skin boosters is the improvement in complexion radiance and skin luminosity, evening out skin texture and skin colour.
As it includes 8 amino acids, 3 antioxidants, 2 minerals and 1 vitamin, this all-rounded combination is best suited for patients who are seeking to lighten their skin tone, achieve a more glowy and dewy look, improve their skin complexion, while increasing their skin’s elasticity.
