Skin Booster (水光针) is an anti ageing treatment that improves overall skin hydration and enhances skin firmness and brightness through small tiny injections of soft hyaluronic acid all over the face. We lose collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid during aging process resulting in drier and less elastic skin. Skin Booster is able to reverse this aging process targeting specific problems.

Skin Booster is very popular and highly sought after in Korea and regional celebrities. Its popularity has grown exponentially in recent years due to increase public awareness of such treatment and its rich benefits. It can dramatically increase your skin hydration and improve overall skin quality in a few sessions.
When Skin Booster in injected into our skin it attracts and absorbs water due to the affinity of hyaluronic acid for water resulting in a favourable skin environment and elevated hydration.
Unlike usual dermal filler used for facial volume loss replacement and facial contour enhancement, Skin Booster is soft and does not change our facial shape. It is indeed an incredible and highly effective treatment because each Skin Booster hyaluronic acid molecule is able to absorb water up to 200 times its weight.
Skin Booster is usually done for the face and neck. However hands and décolletage can benefit from it as well.
Skin Booster treatment is performed by multiple microinjection of the products into our skin. It can be done by either manual hand injection or by injector gun (水光枪). Prior topical numbing cream is applied for 20 min before the treatment starts. Treatment duration is around 15 minutes.
Skin Booster needs to be performed once every 3-4 weeks for total of 3-4 sessions to get the best result. Subsequent treatments are performed every 6 months as maintenance
The result can last between 9-12 months.
Practically anyone is a candidate for Skin Booster treatment since everyone needs improved skin hydration and collagen stimulation. However it is particularly useful for patients with dry, dull looking and aging skin. Patient with superficial depressed acne scar will see improvement as well.
Injection related side effects such as redness, swelling, needle marks, skin bumpi-ness are common and will subside within 24 hours. Bruising may sometimes occur as well and ice packs can resolve it in a short time.
