While I was holidaying in Korea recently, I wondered why Korean celebrities always boast such smooth, flawless and beautiful looking skin. I have also noticed my skin becoming extremely dry (visible fine lines!) since returning from my skiing trip in Korea, and it does not help even after applying expensive products on my face.
That’s when I come to know of the Skin Booster treatment, commonly known as 水光针, which is one of the most popular skin rejuvenation treatments that have taken Korea and Taiwan by storm.
As we reach mid-20s, our skin will start to lose collagen, fats and hyaluronic acid, which will inevitably lead to sagging skin and wrinkles.
Age, stress, unhealthy lifestyle, lack of sleep and hormonal imbalance are all factors contributing to skin aging. With aging, the skin is also unable to produce sufficient of its own hyaluronic acid and collagen.
The problem is that hyaluronic acid will not be able to last for more than a couple of hours when applied as a face cream due to little or poor penetration.
However, with the Skin Booster treatment, it is possible to see more effective and long-lasting results.
The Eleve Skin Booster at Eleve Aesthetic Clinic contains a unique and exclusive formula of hyaluronic acid based skin enhancer to help restore skin density, improve skin hydration and at the same time strengthen the skin’s barrier to adequately nourish your skin from within.
Hyaluronic acid has the capacity to retain a lot of water and hence, is able to make your skin look and feel smoother and plumper, which are all hallmarks of a younger-looking skin!
How is the treatment done?
The hyaluronic acids can then act by absorbing water for hydration and improve the formation of collagen below the surface of the skin. The entire procedure last between 15-30 mins.
Is the treatment painful?
I rate the pain level as 3-4 and it gets slightly painful towards the centre of the face and also at the eye lid area.
The skin booster itself also contain anesthesia, hence the level of pain and discomfort was really minimal and bearable.
Is the treatment safe?
Hyaluronic acid is a ubiquitous, naturally occurring substance present in the human body which is very safe for administration on or into the skin.
Are there any side effects?
As the procedure is performed with multiple micro-injections onto the face, bruising and swelling may be seen in some people for up till one week.
Personally, I did not suffer from any bruising or swelling at all even though the doctor injected a little more skin booster under my eyes to help lessen my dark eye circles (thank you!).
I only observed the usual brownish dots on my face for the next 3 days which are actually microscopic scabs formed by the micro-needles at the entry point which had later dried and closed up.
How long will the results last?
Eye rejuvenation and instant improvement in the skin texture can be observed, as well as reduction in pore size, fine lines, wrinkles, and improved radiance on the skin.
The treatment results can last up to 1 year after at least 3 treatments are done at a 3-4 weeks interval between sessions.
What are the things I should take note of after the skin booster treatment?
It is advisable to avoid going to hot springs, sauna, steam rooms or having any RF, laser or IPL treatments done to your face within the next 2 weeks after your skin booster treatment.
As mentioned, the tiny scabs on my face were not even visible by the third day and I do observed improved skin hydration, plumping and smoothening of my laugh lines, as well as natural, luminous skin after only one session!
So far, I am really loving the results of the Eleve Skin Booster which helps me maintain hydration and achieve healthy-looking skin that no amount of creams and facials on the face can achieve in such a short time!
