What are skin boosters?
The most common ingredient for skin boosters is hyaluronic acid as it is capable of attracting water molecules from the surroundings and brings the results of a more hydrated plumper skin.
How do they work?
It can be thought of as injectable skincare as the principles are exactly the same. Skin is a natural barrier and hence topical superficially application of skincare products is difficult to penetrate to the deeper dermis. With injection techniques of skin boosters, we can deliver the active ingredients directly into the mid dermis and deeper dermis layers, providing the building blocks for better new cell growth. You will notice the skin becoming more elastic as the action of microneedle injection solely can stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin.
What are the different types of skin boosters?
They are many different
types of skin boosters in the market. First-generation skin boosters are made of
non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid, i.e. Restylane vital light, Juvederm Volite. They provide an immense amount of hydration effect.
Examples of Second-generation skin boosters include Rejuran Healer, Filmed NCTF. They provide cosmetic ingredients, that are nutrients and building
blocks for skin regeneration. Third-generation skin boosters are ingredients that originate from stem cells such as Exosome by ASCE, which is not approved by HSA Singapore at the moment. Fourth-generation are made of PDO (polydioxanone), which promotes self collagen production. It ha
s generally a longer-lasting effect with skin lifting and tightening results when collagen production starts.
Why everyone should get skin boosters?
Skin boosters are equivalent to putting hundreds of skincare products and sheet masks. It saves time and effort to put layers of skincare ingredients. You can reap the benefit of cosmetic ingredients way more efficiently if the ingredients are directly delivered to the cells.
What are the beneficial results you can expect?
