Skin ageing affects both men and women and starts from the age of 30 onwards. As we age, various stimuli, such as prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays, reduced levels of collagen and elastin production and decreased skin elasticity, cause the quality of our skin to deteriorate. Skinbooster treatments, such as those offered by Cambridge Medical Group, can reduce and even reverse the effects of ageing, allowing patients to achieve their beauty goals without unnecessary pain, risk or downtime.
There are two main skinbooster treatments offered by Cambridge, namely the Aquashine Skinbooster 水光针 treatment and the Rejuran® Healer 婴儿针 treatment. Both are advanced treatment programmes that use non-invasive and non-surgical techniques to help you achieve your beauty goals. This means that the levels of discomfort are kept minimal, making the treatment a more pleasant experience. It also means that the downtime is very short, so you will be able to resume your normal daily activities soon after the end of your treatment session.
The Aquashine Skinbooster treatment at Cambridge uses deeply hydrating micro-injections to rejuvenate the skin as well as improve its firmness, elasticity, and smoothness. These effects can be seen gradually over the course of a few weeks following the treatment.
This treatment is versatile and can help treat a wide variety of skin concerns, such as facial hydration. It is also able to improve the skin structure of acne-scarred or photo-damaged skin and smoothen and soften necklines. Patients who undergo successful Aquashine Skinbooster treatments can expect subtle and gradual skin plumping. Necklines should also be softened and smoothened, while the overall skin texture and radiance should also be noticeable. Furthermore, the Aquashine Skinbooster is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment that reduces downtime to a minimum, meaning that you would be able to resume your daily activities very shortly after the completion of the treatment. There is also minimal discomfort with this low-risk treatment, especially when analgesia is applied appropriately.
As with all treatments, results may vary. Hence, it is important to arrange for a consultation with Dr Lee Mun Heng at the Cambridge Medical Group. Following the examination, he would be able to provide personalized and professional medical advice to help you to achieve your beauty goals quickly, painlessly, and effectively. For most patients, an initial treatment programme consisting of 3 sessions spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart is recommended but might be personalised to fit your circumstances. Analgesia is applied before the treatment session to make the experience more comfortable for you. Furthermore, each session takes under 20 minutes, making it a quick and convenient option for busy individuals.
The Rejuran Healer treatment is an innovative skin healing procedure formulated to improve ageing skin and stimulate collagen. It improves the skin’s collagen structure and elasticity by re-activating the skin's natural ability to heal by triggering a cell renewal process. Furthermore, this procedure presents less discomfort during the treatment and less bruising after the treatment because of the ultra-fine needles it uses.
Patients who undergo the Rejuran Healer treatment can expect improvements in skin hydration and skin elasticity within the first month following the treatment. In fact, smoother skin, clearer complexion, and better oil balance are expected within just 5 days of the treatment, while pore reduction and an improvement in overall appearance can be expected 2-4 weeks after the treatment. The results peak 4-6 weeks after the treatment, with the skin looking visibly healthier, brighter, and firmer.
Depending on the skin condition and type, you can see the effect after 1-3 treatments. A programme of 3 sessions at an interval of 3 weeks is recommended to achieve optimal results, with the best results appearing only after the last treatment. Furthermore, there is little to no downtime for the Rejuran Healer treatment, though there are some patients that experience redness and slight swelling in the treatment area. These minor side effects usually resolve themselves without intervention within 24 hours and should not be a cause for alarm or concern. However, specific recommendations for the suitability of the treatment in achieving your beauty goals and individual health circumstances can only be ascertained after a consultation with Dr Lee.
