What You Need To Know About Skin Hydration Booster Treatments

To replenish our skin’s hyaluronic acid content, we now have the option of Skin Boosters treatments. Here’s what you need to know. Our skin contains a lot of hyaluronic acid which is a crucial element in proper functioning of our skin cells. Hyaluronic acid, the essential bond between skin cells, gets depleted as we age. As a result, our cells do not turn over as quickly as they used to.

Aside from that, hyaluronic acid also contributes to our skin’s overall barrier function and helps our skin to retain moisture effectively. As a result, our skin loses its youthful elasticity and radiance.


What is a Skin Booster treatment?

Skin Boosters are popular treatments to achieve radiant and youthful-looking skin. The treatment involves injection of a specially formulated and highly purified hyaluronic acid gel into the skin. This then brings about radiance and glow unlike what other treatments can achieve. It improves skin moisture retention which translates to less fine lines and smaller pore size, and a generally better skin texture. All this after 1-2 weeks of a single injection session. It also reduces skin laxity in the longer term.



How does the Skin Booster treatment work? What is the procedure like?

After the initial consultation, the doctor will locate your 5 bio-aesthetic points (BAP) on each side of the face and neck. Then, using a fine needle, the Skin Booster will be injected under the surface of the skin. These injectable points are strategically placed to minimize bruising and discomfort and to yield optimal results. Each treatment only takes about 5 minutes.

Besides the intense hydration effects of the hyaluronic acid, it also treats skin laxity by bio-stimulating the skin’s production of elastin and collagen. The treatment is used to reduce the appearance of sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles on the face, neck, chest and even hands.

Overall, the results are noticeable within 2 weeks after the first treatment. Dr. David Loh, medical director of David Loh Surgery generally advises patients to follow up with a second session after a month. After treatment, the results can last anywhere between 8 to 9 months.

What are the key benefits of a Skin Booster treatment?

Firstly, because of the high concentration of hyaluronic acid, Skin Booster is an effective treatment for boosting overall hydration levels and stimulating collagen production.

Secondly, Skin Booster brings about bio-stimulation of elastin and collagen in the skin, resulting in a tighter, firmer and more radiant appearance.

Thirdly, it also accelerates tissue repair which is instrumental in the treatment of acne breakouts and scars.

On top of it all, this treatment is quick and involves minimal downtime and discomfort.

How is Profhilo different from dermal fillers, Rejuran and skin boosters like Volite?

These are the various brands of skin hydration boosting injections. Unlike dermal fillers, Profhilo does not restore volume to the skin. Instead, it delivers an intense surge of hydration to restore radiance and vitality to the skin.

Compared with skin boosters, Profhilo differs in the way it is delivered to the skin. While Profhilo involves 5 injection points per side, skin boosters requires multiple small injections in one localized area.

Although Profhilo’s main ingredient (hyaluronic acid) is similar to that of skin boosters and fillers, the biotechnological and chemical structures differ significantly from skin boosters or fillers. In fact, the concentration of hyaluronic acid in Profhilo is five times more than the average skin booster. Additionally, its binding technology also ensures that there are less impurities in its formulation than that of traditional dermal fillers. So what this means is Profhilo is safer with a lower risk of lumpiness and other unwanted side effects.

As for Rejuran, that is a product based on Salmon testicular DNA extracts. You decide if you want to that.

Frequently asked questions about Profhilo


1. Who is eligible for Profhilo treatment?

Pretty much everyone will benefit from the treatment. However, it works particularly well for individuals with signs of ageing skin and who are looking to hydrate, tighten and improve the quality of their skin. It is also very effective for mild to moderate cases of skin laxity and rhytids (a fancy term for wrinkles or fine lines).

2. What is the downtime after Profhilo injections? Are there any side effects?

Recovery time is remarkably short. There are hardly any visible side effects except small “bumps” which will normally subside after a day or so. Patients can usually resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure. Since Profhilo is bio-compatible with your body, your body will be able to metabolize the hyaluronic acid injectable over time.

3. Can I combine Profhilo with other aesthetic treatments?

Yes, it can be safely and synergistically combined with many other aesthetic treatments such as fillers and even lasers. However, it is always advisable to consult your doctor regarding the treatment sequence for optimal results.
