Skinbooster treatment, also known as 水光针, involves microinjection of hyaluronic acid into the skin.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring hydrating substance in the face that can absorb up to 1000x its weight in water. However HA levels in the skin diminish as we age, resulting in dehydrated and tired looking skin. By replenishing and boosting HA levels with skin boosters, skin quality and hydration is significantly improved.
