What are Skinboosters?

Skinboosters (水光针) are injectable stabilised hyaluronic acid (HA) which are deposited in the skin via micro-injections. 

Skinboosters contain: 

  • Hyaluronic acid 

A sugar naturally produced by the body that is a powerful humectant capable of retaining over 1000 times its weight in water within your skin cells. 

  • Lidocaine 

This is a commonly used anaesthetic that is safe and effective in reducing discomfort during injections. 

As we age, our skin loses HA and collagen. This leads to dry and sagging skin as well as fine lines and wrinkles. Skinboosters hydrate the skin intensely by greatly increasing moisture levels within skin cells.
