Do you know that we produce 1% less collagen in our skin each year after the age of 20? As our skin loses these collagen, this leads to dry and sagging skin as well as fine lines and wrinkles.
Fret not! Skinbooster is our solution to these concerns. Skinboosters help to hydrate the skin intensely by greatly increasing moisture levels within skin cells. These are injectable stabilized hyaluronic acid (HA) which are deposited in the skin via micro-injections.
Benefits of Skinboosters
Some indications for Skinboosters include:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Rough and dehydrated skin
- Large pores
- Dull skin
Giving your skin a boost of hydration and brightness is what Skinboosters accomplish. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is precisely microinjected into the skin to achieve these benefits.
In addition to raising moisture levels and stimulating collagen development in the skin for a healthy & dewy sheen, this offers intense hydration that lasts for a long time.
How do they work?
When hyaluronic acid skinboosters are injected into the skin, small deposits of hyaluronic acid act like reservoirs under the skin, drawing water molecules up to 200x its weight to the dermis. This results in improved skin hydration, skin elasticity, texture and firmness. Hence, it provides you a more luminous supple skin.
Many studies have also shown that skinboosters help in boosting collagen and elastin production by stimulating fibroblast activity. This goes to show that skin boosters are the perfect answer to those with:-
- Dry skin
- Dull skin
- Sensitive skin
- Large pores
- Fine lines
- Superficial wrinkles

Rejuran, also known as ‘Baby Skin Booster’, is a unique anti-ageing skin rejuvenation treatment to achieve smooth and supple skin.
It has an active ingredient which is polynucleotides (PN) derived from Salmon fish DNA. These highly purified long chain polynucleotides are extracted and processed under high pressure and temperature. Rejuran is safe and biocompatible with human skin, without causing any immune responses or side effects.
Polynucleotides actually promote cell growth that repairs damaged skin cells and stimulates natural collagen production and elastin as well. This causes a reconstruction and improvement of the physical appearance of the skin. The skinbooster has a high water binding capacity that binds easily to water molecules and hydrates the skin effectively.
SUNEKOS® is a unique skin booster from Italy made up of Hyaluronic acid & patented mix of 6 amino acids. It promotes extracellular matrix (ECM) regeneration for dermal tissues by stimulating fibroblast activities and collagen stimulation.
SUNEKOS utilizes amino acid’s biological diversity and synergy, in combination with Hyaluronic acid, to restore skin’s health and physiological balance. Not only does it provide hydration, it gives a volumising effect. There are two types: SUNEKOS 200 and SUNEKOS 1200.
SUNEKOS 200 is used to treat areas like the eyes, face, neck, chest and hands which are perfect for earlier signs of aging. SUNEKOS 1200 on the other hand, is used for sagging skin and deeper fine lines. For best results, these two are typically used together.
PROFHILO® is the first revolutionary bio-remodelling “injectable skincare” that uses 100% pure hyaluronic acid to address signs of skin aging naturally through bio-stimulation of collagen and elastin.
Through a thermal production process patented by IBSA, PROFHILO® is developed by obtaining thermally cross-linked stabilized hybrid cooperative complexes (HCC) of high hyaluronic acid(HA) concentration (64 mg/2ml). This allows high and low molecular weight HA to link together and to be released slowly and dissipate evenly under the skin without unevenness.
It helps penetrate deep into the subcutaneous layer of the skin which encourages production of elastin and collagen in the deeper layer of the skin to provide a glow. The deeper the subcutaneous layer preserves and promotes the via
HA is hydrophilic, meaning it draws and holds water from your body. Thus, Profhilo acts as a hydrator rather than a filler. This makes it suitable for those with tired, dull-looking skin, transforming it into firm and luminous skin.
Over the next few weeks, collagen and elastin production are stimulated which produce a secondary effect of skin tightening. Profhilo acts to reverse some of these changes. The maximum effect of Profhilo is usually seen 2 months after the second treatment.
Skinboosters typically have a downtime to a certain extent but it is still minimal even with multiple injections points required in the initial stage. Hence, it is important to plan out your course of treatments with any major event that you have.
Ultimately, it is best to speak with your doctor of any concerns that you may have. Every individual’s skin type and condition is different, so this makes it even more important to discuss with the doctor that is in charge of your treatment.
