different types of skinboosters for baby supple skin

Are you looking for a non-surgical and effective way to rejuvenate your skin? Skinboosters can improve skin texture, firmness, and hydration, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. But with so many types of skinboosters available, it can be hard to know which one is right for you.

Here’s a table outlining the key differences between the types of skinboosters we’ll discuss in this article, which are the recommended ones by Dr Chloe Ho, available at Asia Wellness.

What are skinboosters?

what are skinboosters

Skinboosters are a type of injectable treatment that help improve skin quality, resulting in improvements to the texture, elasticity, and hydration of the skin.

They work by injecting hyaluronic acid, Poly D-Lactic Acid (PDLA), Polycaprolactone (PCL, or other substances, such as Polynucleotide (PN) under the skin to stimulate collagen production and increase hydration levels.

Skinboosters can be used on various areas of the face, neck, and hands to improve skin tone, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and restore a youthful appearance.

How do skinboosters work exactly?

how do skinboosters work

Skinboosters work by injecting hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body, into the skin. Hyaluronic acid attracts and binds water, which helps to hydrate the skin and improve its elasticity and texture.

The injection of hyaluronic acid also stimulates the body's production of collagen, a protein that gives the skin its structure and firmness. This increase in collagen production helps to improve the overall quality and appearance of the skin.

Different types of skinboosters may also contain other nutrients or substances to further enhance their effects. The treatment is typically administered in a series of sessions spaced a few weeks apart to achieve optimal results.

Choosing the right skinbooster for you

choosing the right skinbooster

Choosing the right skinbooster for you depends on your skin concerns and goals. HA skinboosters are a great all-around option for improving skin hydration, elasticity, and firmness. Some HA skinboosters also help restore volume and reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles and folds. Collagen stimulating skinboosters such as Juvelook and Gouri are newer options that can improve skin texture and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Below is a quick rundown of the 6 different types of skinboosters recommended by Dr Chloe Ho. Please refer to the table above for a broad overview.

Restylane Vital Light

Restylane Vital Light is a highly effective long lasting skin booster that can help rejuvenate your skin and give it a fresh, radiant glow. Its primary ingredient is hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps keep it plump and hydrated. HA attracts and binds water, helping to provide deep hydration and stimulate collagen production in your skin.

By injecting Restylane Vital Light into specific areas of your face, neck, décolletage, or hands, we can improve your skin's elasticity, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, and restore a more youthful appearance.

Teosyal RD1

Teosyal Redensity I is specifically designed to improve your skin's texture, tone, and hydration, leaving you with a fresh, radiant glow. It is another HA skinbooster that also contains a unique blend of amino acids, antioxidants, and vitamins, which work together to nourish and protect your skin from environmental damage.

When Teosyal Redensity I is injected into specific areas of your face, neck, décolletage, or hands, it helps to improve your skin's elasticity, firmness, and tone. It also helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.

Rejuran Healer

Rejuran Healer enhances collagen production, improves skin elasticity, and firmness, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is made with polynucleotide (PN), a powerful compound that has been shown to stimulate collagen production and accelerate the skin's natural healing process.

Other benefits of Rejuran Healer (and why it’s so popular), include reduction of the appearance of acne scars through collagen production and increased skin hydration. Rejuran Healer is especially suitable for sensitive and damaged skin because of its natural healing properties.


While not necessarily a skinbooster (or even a filler), Profhilo is a bio-remodelling “injectable skincare” that has both skin rejuvenating and volumizing effects, making it a popular choice among my patients. It has the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid at 64mg for 2 mls and it is especially useful for addressing skin laxity, thin dehydrated skin and correcting signs of ageing.  Another reason for its popularity is that there are a lot less injection points required for Profhilo, making it a quick and relatively comfortable procedure with minimal downtime. 

Profhilo is made with a unique formulation of HA, specifically 32mg/ml (vs the 20mg/ml present in other skinboosters such as Restylane), designed for deep hydration and bio-remodelling (basically restoring lost volume). It is generally recommended as an anti-aging treatment for patients who want plumper and more hydrated skin.


Gouri has several benefits that make it an excellent choice for anyone looking to improve their overall skin's texture and firmness. One of its key benefits is its ability to naturally spread and regenerate collagen throughout the entire face.

Another advantage of Gouri is its ability to provide sustainable results by preventing skin aging through deep skin rejuvenation. Finally, Gouri is a natural way to improve your skin's appearance, as it works by rejuvenating your skin's natural collagen production.


JuveLook provides long-lasting anti-aging effects that can last up to 18-24 months after 2-3 treatment sessions. It combines Hyaluronic Acid with Polylactic Acid (PLA), which stimulates collagen synthesis, making the skin smoother and more youthful-looking gradually and over a sustained period of time. It is a great option for patients looking to improve acne scarring, reduce pore size and reduce wrinkles.

Juvelook is a safe and biodegradable option, made from non-toxic materials that do not migrate upon injection. As a result, this skinbooster is naturally absorbed and excreted by the body, making it a safe and effective choice. JuveLook also offers visible anti-wrinkle effects after the first injection.

The skinbooster treatment process

skinbooster treatment process

The skinbooster treatment process typically involves several injections of the chosen substance under the skin using a very fine needle. Local anesthesia is used to minimize discomfort. The procedure usually takes 30-60 minutes to complete, depending on the number of areas being treated. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.

Skinbooster aftercare

After the skinbooster treatment, patients should avoid strenuous exercise, alcohol, and sun exposure for 24 hours. Patients may experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site, which should subside within a few days.

Dr Chloe may recommend using a cold compress and taking over-the-counter pain medication to alleviate discomfort.

Possible side effects of skinboosters

skinboosters possible side effects

Possible side effects of skinboosters include swelling, redness, bruising, itching, and tenderness at the injection site. These side effects are usually mild and subside within a few days.

Rarely, more serious side effects such as infection or allergic reaction may occur. It's important to follow your doctor’s aftercare instructions and seek medical attention if you experience any unusual symptoms.

How long can skinboosters last?

The duration of skinbooster results depends on the type of skinbooster used and individual factors such as skin type, age, and lifestyle. Generally, after completing the initial dose of between 2-3 sessions, HA and PN skinboosters can last between 6-12 months before you might want to consider another boost.

How are skinboosters different from dermal fillers?

skinboosters and fillers difference

Skinboosters and dermal fillers are often confused, but they are different treatments. Dermal fillers are used to restore volume and fill in deep wrinkles and folds, while skinboosters are used to improve skin hydration, texture, and elasticity.

Dermal fillers typically last longer than skinboosters and are often used in conjunction with skinboosters to achieve optimal results.

Book a consultation and assessment for skinboosters

Skinboosters are a non-invasive and effective way to improve skin texture, hydration, and elasticity. As they do not add volume to your face, you do not have to worry about looking unnatural or puffy.

There are several types of skinboosters available, each with their own unique benefits and duration of results. Choosing the right skinbooster for you depends on your skin concerns and goals, and Dr Chloe Ho can help you make an informed decision.

They say your eyes are the window to your soul – conventionally, this idiom represents the ability to understand someone’s emotions just by gazing into their eyes. 

Whether or not that is true is up for interpretation, but here is a fact – your eyes can cause you to look much older, and here’s why: 

For those reasons, our eyes start showing signs of ageing before any part of our face. This process is accelerated with factors such as sun damage, lifestyle[2] habits (e.g. smoking, drinking alcohol) and genetics. 

So if you want to look younger or slow down ageing, pay attention to your eyes. 

In this article, allow me to share some telltale signs that the skin around your eyes need some TLC and the best treatments to consider. 

Signs that your eye area is ageing faster than you

1. Fine Lines and Wrinkles

As your eyes are one of the most expressive parts of your face, it’s only natural to develop fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes. You’ll start to notice these age lines more prominently as when you hit your 30s, elastin and collagen production slows down. 

2. Puffy Undereyes

We’ve all woken up with puffy undereyes, whether it’s due to a lack of sleep, dietary reasons (eating too much salt) or smoking. However, if you live a balanced and healthy lifestyle and still notice puffy undereyes, it may just be because the fatty tissue around your eyes is starting to sag. Loss of elasticity and water retention can make puffiness and bags around the eyes more pronounced.

3. Thinner Skin

The skin around your eyes is much thinner than the rest of your face – this is true regardless of age. As you get older, the skin around your eyes will get progressively thinner. Signs of thin skin include the appearance of dry, loose and crepey skin. You may also notice a more hooded appearance of the upper eyelids as the skin starts to droop downwards.   

4. Dark Circles

The appearance of dark eye circles may be due to excessive deposits of melanin around the eyes. This usually results in a brownish discolouration that can sometimes affect the upper eye lids as well. If you notice the discolouration under your eyes to be more of a dark purple hue, this discolouration stems from the blood vessels under the eyes. The thinner your skin is, the more visible your blood vessels will be. A lack of sleep and allergies can also accentuate the purplish discolouration under your eyes. 

A tear trough depression due to age related loss of subcutaneous fat and thinning of the skin can cause a shadowing under the eyes that lead to the appearance of dark eye circles as well. 

Treatments to reverse ageing around your eyes

PicoLo Laser

PicoLo Laser is a non-invasive picosecond laser treatment used to treat pigmentation, wrinkles, age spots and for brighter undereyes. It can also be used to fade unwanted tattoos and acne scars. Piccolo laser toning can be used to reduce the melanin deposits under the eyes and even out the skin tone. Regular piccolo laser toning can also help to build collagen under the eyes to plump up the skin and reduce the appearance of dark eye circles. This can be done in combination with skin boosters to improve the skin density and plump up the skin.

The PicoLo Laser comes in two modes:

Benefits of PicoLo Laser includes:

ADVATx Yellow Laser

ADVATx Yellow Laser is a painless, high-powered laser capable of treating a variety of skin conditions and skin types. This treatment yields immediate results with no downtime.

Benefits of ADVATx Yellow Laser includes:

Undereye fillers 

A tear trough depression under the eyes as a result of a loss of subcutaneous fat and thinning of the skin can give rise to shadowing under the eyes as well as a hollow appearance. This can make one appear tired and older. Dermal fillers made up of hyaluronic acid can be used to fill out the depression and reshape the peri-oribital region. Immediate improvement can usually be observed but do give it about 1-2 weeks for any swelling to settle. 

Botulinum toxin 

Excessive movement of the muscles around the eyes due to various facial expressions can lead to the appearance of lines at the side of the eyes. These are known as crow feet lines. These lines can be categorized as dynamic (meaning on movement) or static (fixed) lines. A simple fix would be to do a tiny injection of botulinum toxin to reduce the muscle movement to reduce the appearance of such lines. Depending on the severity of the lines, a combination with skinboosters or machine treatments may be advised to rebuild the collagen in order to plump up the skin. 

Wrapping up

The skin around your eyes is the most delicate part of the face and is prone to early signs of ageing.

Signs such as fine lines and wrinkles, puffy undereyes, thinner skin, and dark circles can make you look much older than you actually are. Usually there is more than one factor involved in the appearance of tired eyes and combination treatments are necessary for a more holistic approach. 

While there is no way to turn back time, it is possible to reverse these signs of ageing. From injectables such as botox and fillers to lasers such as Picolo laser and Advatx yellow laser- there is a whole range of treatment options to help you look more youthful and energetic.

In Singapore, many aesthetic clinics offer the reliable Pico Laser treatment for skin brightening and for good reason – it’s been repeatedly clinically proven[1] to show promising results for stubborn conditions like acne scars, and comes with far less downtime and side effects compared to earlier Q-switched lasers.

Pico Laser is indeed an effective laser treatment, but it is also well compatible with various other treatment options to produce even better results.

In fact, a good aesthetic doctor will recommend a combination of pico laser with other therapies to reach different depths of your skin. Since Christmas is around the corner, allow me to share more on a skin brightening protocol my colleague Dr Claudine Pang and I formulated.

If you’re looking for a low-effort, instant glow-up, this is it.

What is skin brightening?

Skin brightening, skin lightening, skin whitening – these are some common terms sometimes used interchangeably but refer to quite different procedures. Let’s break down each term:

What is it
Skin BrighteningSkin brightening is all about rejuvenation – think glowy skin often seen in Korean celebs.
Through rejuvenation, we are able to return radiance and glow to the skin. Although not its primary purpose, the process of skin brightening may also reduce the appearance of dark spots.
Skin LighteningSkin lightening is one step further than skin brightening.
While skin brightening is unable to completely remove the visible appearance of dark spots, skin lightening can. In fact, if used regularly, some skin lightening products can alter the shade of your complexion
Skin WhiteningSkin whitening goes beyond brightening and lightening.
It is about achieving a drastically whiter shade, lighter than your natural skin tone.

A word of caution: Skin whitening is harmful.

The ingredients used in skin whitening products are often potent[2] and prolonged use of these products has been associated with poisoning, skin and kidney damage, and liver malfunction.

Aesthetic treatments should improve your complexion and not cause irreversible damage. Between skin brightening and skin lightening, always initiate an in-depth discussion with your doctor on the results you hope to achieve.

Which treatment is best for skin brightening?

When we think of skin brightening, there is no one ‘best’ treatment. In fact, there are several, equally good options that can brighten your skin that can be used independently.

Pico Laser is a non-invasive laser treatment used to treat most common skin imperfections including sun damage and acne scarring. It is able to achieve visible, lasting results and has minimal downtime.

The Pico laser sends ultra-short pulses of energy – without heat – to targeted areas. The technology allows for particularly precise treatment of pigmented lesions in the quickest and most effective manner. The laser also triggers the production of elastin, a protein that gives you softer and fuller complexion.

Pico Laser can be applied to the face and body. Apart from some temporary redness and swelling, it is a generally painless process.

Conditions Pico Laser can treat:

Yellow Laser is another non-invasive treatment that is both gentle and effective, especially for mild to moderate acne. You can expect to see clearer skin within 6 treatments at 2 to 3 weeks intervals.

The Yellow laser eradicates active acne by shrinking the sebaceous gland to reduce production of sebum. At the same time, it encourages collagen growth and reduces the appearance of small red blood vessels, giving you firmer and clearer skin.

Apart from some redness, which should subside within an hour, Yellow Laser treatment is generally painless. You should also avoid sun exposure for at least two weeks before the treatment and abstain from using any products that may irritate the skin at least three days prior to the treatment.

Conditions Yellow Laser can treat:

Each session comes with an optional add on LED light therapy to improve the healing process.

LED Light Therapy

LED Light Therapy has been around for decades and is known for its healing properties.

Unlike other types of light therapy that may contain harmful ultraviolet rays, LED Light Therapy does not and is safe for regular use. You are recommended to go for weekly sessions for a period of 10 weeks then follow-up once every few months to maintain the results.

LED Light Therapy involves using varying wavelengths of light, otherwise referred to as red and blue light, to address age-related skin conditions and acne.

Red light: Stimulates collagen proteins for smoother and fuller skin and is primarily used for anti-ageing treatment. Red light can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Blue light: Targets the sebaceous glands, making them less active. In turn, you may see less oily skin and fewer acne breakouts. Besides preventing acne, blue light also treats active acne by destroying acne bacteria beneath the skin.

The two lights are often used together to treat acne, reduce scarring, and promote anti-inflammatory effects.

LED Light Therapy is a generally safe option and has no downtime. It is non-invasive and suitable for darker skin tones or sensitive skin. However, you may want to consider avoiding this option if you have an active rash or currently on Accutane for acne.

Combining the two lasers with LED Light Therapy for best results

These three aforementioned treatments complement one another to give you even better results than if you were to opt for a single treatment only.


Let’s take pigmentation for example.

Laser treatment is generally used to break down pigmentation in the skin into smaller fragments that will be cleared out by the skin’s immune system. Combining lasers of different wavelengths allows us to target the pigmentation at various skin levels. For example:

Pico Laser is most suited to target dermal and epidermal pigmentation
Yellow Laser is particularly useful for reducing underlying redness and inflammation
LED Light Therapy is then applied to speed up the healing process and rejuvenate the skin by triggering collagen production.

While it might seem like a mouthful to undergo three treatments, combining different treatments that each serve different purposes is the most holistic and effective way for long term skin brightening results.

What is the fastest way to brighten skin?

While aesthetic treatments can help achieve brighter skin, lifestyle changes go a long way in complementing results.

I have a separate article on the best anti-ageing tips; here’s a TL;DR:

  1. Protect yourself from UV rays
  2. Invest in an extensive skincare routine
  3. Undergo an anti-ageing screening
  4. Start anti-ageing treatments early
  5. Work with a trusted aesthetic doctor
  6. Equally invest in eye and neck treatments
  7. Choose only medi-facials

Pro tip: You should also pay attention to what you consume.

Opt for high-fibre and high-protein foods rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids. A daily probiotic supplement is also great for promoting good skin from within.

In addition, stay active. Swap the cigarettes out for a few cardio workouts weekly. Staying active and keeping fit is not only beneficial for your skin – it also helps with maintaining your overall well-being.


When it comes to skin brightening, the delicate combination of Pico Laser, Yellow Laser, and LED Light Therapy can help you achieve an instant and long lasting glow. As opposed to relying on a single treatment that targets a specific layer, these treatments used together not only tackles dull skin at several layers but also smoothens the skin on the outermost layer.

The desire for perfect skin, a small face, bright eyes, and a slim body is not just an Asian passion, but a worldwide phenom. Many patients possess the same desire to have the flawless youthfulness of Korean celebrities like Kim Tae Hee, Song Hye Kyo and Son Ye Jin.

Korean actresses

Anti ageing doesn’t have to be complicated; it’s a lot easier than you think to look like a younger, better version of yourself.

But first, you have to nail the basics: Create a healthy regime that does not accelerate the ageing process, and then match that foundation with anti-ageing treatments that are correct for YOU.

Whether you’re in your 20s looking to delay ageing symptoms (“prejuvenation”) or in your 40s trying to regain your youth, here are some anti-ageing non-negotiables.

Tip 1: Protect yourself from the sun

From a young age, Koreans are taught to be incredibly savvy about their skin, especially whilst in the sun. Beyond applying sunscreen, many Koreans take great care to stay out of direct sunlight as much as possible.

Taking care to protect yourself from the sun helps prevent UV damage, which will inevitably contribute to ageing skin. This approach promotes a youthful appearance in the future with fewer fine lines and pigmentation (eg. melasma), all while protecting the skin from the daily oxidative damages of pollution and the weather.

Obviously, it’s impossible to avoid the sun in Singapore, so here are some good practices to adopt:

Even on cloudy days, over 90%1 of the sun's UV radiation reaches your skin. So, don’t scrimp on sunscreen!

Tip 2: Invest in an extensive skincare routine

In order to meet the high standards of K-beauty, Koreans are constantly looking for new ways of improving their skin-care routine. The famous 10-step skincare routine is a good example, and it goes like this:

While the process might seem intimidating (and expensive), committing to the art of layering can be a big game-changer in your skincare routine - Never overlook the importance of steps like exfoliating and toning when it comes to achieving healthy, youthful skin.

And while it is not strictly necessary for you to adhere to these 10 steps, the key here is to give your skin every bit of love and nourishment that it needs, consistently.

Tip 3: Undergo an anti-ageing screening

Do you look unexplainably visibly older than peers your age, feel unusually tired or experiencing more hair loss than usual? You might want to get your hormone levels checked.

Hormones play a huge role in the way our body functions and age. An anti-ageing screening can investigate if:

Ultimately, the goal of an anti-ageing screening is to help us target problem areas and determine preventive tactics to slow down the ageing process.

Tip 4: Start anti-ageing treatments early

While we can't stop the ageing process, applying the right products and seeking the right treatments as early as in our 20s can help reduce the appearance of stubborn fine lines, wrinkles and age spots down the road.

For some individuals, this might mean inducing retinoids in their daily skincare routine, or opting for aesthetic treatments like injectables to slow down ageing.

As ageing occurs due to a lack of collagen, for a start, Skinboosters are a safe and excellent bet. Skinboosters work by:

Besides moisture loss and dehydrated skin, the appearance of pigmentation and scars can affect skin health and age. The PicoLo laser is fantastic for removing pigmented lesions.

Tip 5: Work with a doctor you can trust

You’ll need to choose the right clinic and doctor for your anti-ageing mission. Firstly, make sure that your chosen aesthetician has wide and proven expertise when it comes to popular anti-ageing treatments, right from injectables to lasers. This will ensure that you’ll have access to the best solutions available for your skin.

Also, because your anti-ageing journey is one for the long haul, your doctor needs to make you feel comfortable, understand your pain points, and offer you tailored treatment plans that suit your unique circumstances. As such, you might want to look online for credible reviews, and ask for recommendations from your loved ones.

It is never too early to stave off the effects of ageing.

It is never too early to stave off the effects of ageing.

Remember: The earlier you start, the better.

But start on the right foot and with the right doctor, or you might achieve the opposite just by working with the wrong one.

Tip 6: Don’t neglect your eyes and neck

Lady with obvious necklines

Most of us completely skip over our necks when taking care of our skin. This is unfortunate, as the neck is one of the most common (and evident) areas that will require anti-ageing treatments later on in life.

As we age, our skin inevitably loses its elasticity and collagen. After years of talking, laughing, and smiling, our skin around our eyes will find it increasingly harder to spring back. Those wrinkles, creases, and fine lines that we dread so much will set in permanently, causing us to look much older than we actually are.

This is why using eye cream and moisturising your neck should be two fundamental aspects of your beauty regime. Additionally, your doctor should be able to provide you with in-office jawline and neck lifting services, such as Morpheus 8, a skin lifting procedure especially helpful for tender areas like the eyes and neck.

Other ways of maintaining eye and neck skin health are:

Tip 7: Choose only medi-facials

Unlike salon-grade facials and extractions which stand a fair chance of worsening your skin, Medi-facials such as hydrafacials are performed under the supervision of a certified dermatologist, and involve the use of ingredients that are medically proven to benefit skin in the long run.

Additionally, medi-facials:
