The Complete Guide to Skin Boosters

Skin Boosters Guide

Have you ever wondered about how your favourite Korean or Taiwanese celebrities achieve their dewy, radiant complexions? The answer lies in skin boosters (水光针) – but what are they?

LS Aesthetic Clinic breaks it down for you: what skin boosters are, how they work, and how you can achieve glowing skin, just like your favourite star.

What are Skin Boosters (水光针)?

Skin boosters are hydrating microinjections that are often delivered into the superficial layers of the skin. This works to naturally hydrate and smoothen your skin from within, by providing long-lasting moisture and improved firmness.

How does it work to improve my skin?

Skin boosters, or 水光针, use stabilised HA, or a type of long-lasting hyaluronic acid, to improve hydration levels in your skin. Stabilised HA is a soft, gel-like substance that readily absorbs water, bringing hydration to where your skin needs it the most.

Skin boosters have multiple benefits for our skin:

– Restores hydration naturally to your skin from within

– Helps you achieve a radiant, dewy complexion

– Improves skin elasticity and firmness

– Smoothens fine lines and evens out irregularities in the skin

– Applicable to your face, neck, hands, and décolletage

What is the procedure like?

A typical skin boosters treatment program comprises 3 treatment sessions, each session taking place about 2 – to 4 weeks apart. However, at LS Aesthetic Clinic, we take pride in personalising our treatment programs to fit your skin condition, and this could result in a different number of treatment sessions depending on your skin needs.

Before your treatment, our experienced therapists will help you apply a topical anaesthetic to ensure that your procedure is as comfortable as possible. Most of our patients generally report finding the procedure very comfortable and tolerable.

Does it hurt? What’s the recovery time like?

We won’t lie – this depends on your tolerance for injections, but at LS Aesthetic Clinic, we apply numbing cream to ensure that your treatment is pain-free and as comfortable as possible.

Side effects are very rare, as hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies and has been used in aesthetic treatments for many years. After the procedure, you might experience slight swelling in the injection areas, but this should subside within a few days.
