Skinboosters (水光针)

Skinbooster is a very popular aesthetics procedure to achieve plump hydrated skin with an enviable glow. Known in Asia as 水光针, and made popular by the Koreans who refer to it as “Mulguang”. The main role of a skinbooster is to deposit moisture beneath the epidermis or dermis, where the hydration is retained for longer periods, thus helping complexion stay hydrated. Good hydration is a main factor for good complexion. Our skin has naturally occurring substances like hyaluronic acid and collagen, which help to keep skin free of lines and wrinkles, however, they deplete as we age. Hence the important role of skinboosters, which are clinically formulated substances that improve hydration and collagen production in your skin.

There are various brands of skinboosters in the market, basically, a skinbooster’s main ingredient is hyaluronic acid (HA). Some brands have enhanced their formula with vitamins, minerals and other nutrients to help further improve skin condition. You can discuss with your doctor which is most suitable for you.

Skinboosters are also called “injectable moisturizers”, as it literally deposits hydration beneath the skin surface via multiple micro-injections of hyaluronic acid (HA) into the skin. Hyaluronic Acid is a substance that occurs naturally in our own bodies, and is able to draw and hold 1000 times its own weight in water. It is used in many topical skincare products for momentary hydration and plumping of fine lines. Skinboosters work by replacing the hyaluronic acid our skin loses because of ageing, by depositing hyaluronic acid beneath the skin surface to restore hydration and elasticity, with longer lasting results. Where topical moisturizers and serums fail to provide long term hydration, injected hyaluronic acid can do so by retaining up to 1000 times its own weight in water just below your skin surface (the dermis layer), providing hydration where it is most needed. Well hydrated skin becomes smoother over time, looks more plumped up with more refined pores and depressed scarring gets “pushed up” making them look less obvious.

Skinboosters work to improve skin condition in two ways: 

1) immediate hydration via depositing HA beneath skin surface
2) stimulating the production of collagen which gives the anti-aging effect
