Skin booster rejuvenation

Refresh Looking and Radiant Skin with Skin Booster Injection

Juvederm Volite / Restylane Vital

Youthful skin is naturally abounding with hyaluronic acid which decreases while we age.  Our skin gradually loses its capacity to hold water and the elasticity and smoothness diminishes resulting in poor skin tone.  These changes can be attributed to both genetic and lifestyle factors, including the frequency of sun exposure.

Beauty products and certain treatments can only pamper your skin at a certain level on the surface.  It will only have a temporary effect because they sit on the surface of the skin and cannot penetrate the skin to provide deep hydration. 

Skin Booster Injection is an approach to deliver deep skin hydration with hyaluronic acid. In Celevenus, Dr Chau uses Juvederm Volite and Restylane Vital for Skin Booster Treatment.  Skin Booster can create luminous skin from within.

Skin booster injection

Skin Booster Injection with Hyaluronic Acid is the latest skin rejuvenation treatment.  It is perfect for rejuvenating aging and photo damaged skin.  It can also improve the skins firmness, elasticity and radiance in a subtle and gradual way that is natural but noticeably invigorating.

When the tiny droplets are injected just under the surface, the hydro balance of the skin is restored as the hyaluronic acid acts as a dermal reservoir, increasing the skin’s moisture holding capacity.  The structure of the skin improves over time, with improved firmness and elasticity.

What are Juvederm Volite and Restylane Vital and how do they work?

Restylane Vital are made from Q-Med’s patented NASHA gel and Juvederm Volite is a hyaluronic gel.   Both uses the latest scientific knowledge in this field. Their function is to replace the hyaluronic acid that the body has stopped producing naturally, and as the initial medical study showed, the use of Juvederm and Restylane products stimulates the production of new collagen in the skin.

Hyaluronic acid, whose main function is the binding and transfer of water, loses this ability over the years and therefore the most noticeable signs of aging become visible:

  • wrinkles
  • roughness of the skin
  • lack of vitality
  • loss of elasticity
  • visible or protruding veins

Excessive exposure to the sun also contributes to aging and ultimately dehydrates the skin, given that UVA radiation directly decreases our natural hyaluronic acid.  Furthermore, years of our life and photoaging reduce the production of elastin and collagen in the skin, which contributes to skin aging.

Simply put, Juvederm Volite and Restylane Vital Skin Booster treatments replace the lost hyaluronic acid and collagen, moisturising the skin from within, and replenishing and rejuvenating mature hands and face.  The natural hydrating properties of Juvederm Volite and Restylane Vital make it well suited for all skin types. Whether your skin is dry or oily, it will visibly respond to the natural benefits of improved hydration.

Areas that may benefit from the Skin Booster injection treatment include the face, neck, back of the hands and décolletage where the skin is thinner.

Hand rejuvenation with skin booster

Hand Rejuvenation with Skin BoosterDo you suffer from thin skin or loss of volume at the back of your hands?  The hand skin can become thin, crepey and wrinkly. The texture becomes less smooth as the years go on. This can be treated with Skin Booster.

Skin Boosters are dermal fillers designed to be injected superficially into the surface of the skin to produce skin hydration and glow.  It will smooth away unwanted wrinkles and folds, adding volume to the back of your hands.  Restylane Vital Skin Booster improves skin elasticity and overall hydration and when used at the back of the hands, the results are impressive. It is designed to balance the nutritional environment of the skin.  Visible improvements to the skin can be seen after an initial course of treatments resulting in healthy skin with a beautiful glow.

Chest & neckline rejuvenation with skin booster

Chest And Neckline Rejuvenation With Skin BoosterThe chest and neckline are often neglected in our younger years, and due to sun exposure and the outdoor elements they often age prematurely.   Patients often concentrate on reducing the signs of ageing solely on their faces and fail to consider the décolletage area.

Over time, levels of hyaluronic acid, the naturally occurring substance responsible for maintaining skin hydration reduce.  The chest and neck skin can become thin and wrinkly.  The solution is to restore the skin’s natural hydration where the loss is occurring.  Skin booster is a moisture binding substance in the skin, giving the skin firmness, plumpness and elasticity.

How is the procedure like and how long do the effect last?

Skin Boosters are applied with either a micro injections gun or by hand.  The micro injections gun utilises a 9-point needle system to deliver a specific amount of dermal filler to a specific depth.  It uses suction to bring the skin to the needles to provide even distribution of the dermal filler up to 1mm into the skin.  At Celevenus, Dr Chau uses Vital Injector 2, one of the best in the industry.

These micro injections stimulate the fibroblasts to produce more of the body’s own Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen, and Elastin, this means that the treatment has ongoing benefits beyond the course of treatment.

Some minor redness, tenderness, swelling or bruising may occur but will not last long. Using numbing cream ahead of time can offer a very comfortable treatment.

Initially a course of 3 to 4 treatments is usually recommended at 4 to 6 weekly intervals. As the hyaluronic acid is broken down over several months, maintenance top up every 6 months or so may be indicated. The number of treatments will vary according to individual needs. There are no restrictions on how often you can receive treatment. In fact, you can repeat treatment as often as you feel is necessary, so that you always look and feel your best.

It can also be combined with Rejuran Healer, Botox, etc to meet the different needs of individual customers.

水光针-让肌肤变得水嫩,晶莹剔透的秘诀

肌肤缺水就会出现细纹,而且会加速皮肤老化,所以市面上保湿产品永远是热销产品。然而不管是涂抹护肤品还是敷面膜,都只能作用在皮肤表层。而水光注射的出现则完美解决了这个问题。水光针可以进行深层次的补水,从根本上解决皮肤缺水问题。这也是水光注射之所以备受青睐的原因。

水光治疗的主要功效在于使肌肤保持‘弹力、紧致、水嫩’。从肌肤细胞及角质层含水量分配的医学研究中得知,只有让皮肤深层锁住水份才能起到长久补水保湿的目的,而水光注射便是利用组合细针和负压的原理,通过仪器将以透明质酸为主的保湿成份注入皮肤深层,提升皮肤水份保持能力,最终呈现出水润透亮并富有弹性的外在肌肤表现。

随着临床经验和患者需求的演进,水光注射治疗由之前以透明质酸为主,逐渐地通过透明质酸加上其他成分,进而使皮肤有更多的改善效果。较常见的搭配方式有肉毒素、维他命C、干细胞以及美白产品等,对于皮肤补水保湿、提升,美白、改善肤色暗沉,抚平细纹、暗疮,保持肌肤弹性等功效明显,治疗后全脸充满紧实水嫩感。

水光针为注射美容,属于非手术,注射层次为较浅的真皮层,风险也相对较小,除了注射后会出现红斑、轻微浮肿和淤青(一两天就会消失)等反应外,基本没有其他不适。

若想要更好的治疗效果,且维持较长的时间,医生通常会建议一个疗程至少做三次,每次间隔约四周左右 (疗程建议仅供参考,治疗则需因人而宜)。
