Looking to slow down those visible signs of ageing? You're not alone. Injectable skin boosters have been increasingly popular in the last couple of years. It's a great non-invasive procedure that promises to hydrate and plump up your skin without downtime.
In 2017, Rejuran Healer entered the scene. Many people are often confused by these two procedures.
So what exactly is Rejuran?
A type of Rejuran
According to Dr Chew, Rejuran is best described as a newly conceptualised skin healing booster.
This injectable works to regenerate skin cells from deep within through the activation of fibroblast proliferation and collagen synthesis.
Rejuran helps your skin to regenerate
Dr Chew explains that Rejuran contains PDRN (polynucleotides tide) that restores the extracellular matrix. 
The PDRN activates self-regenerating powers deep within the skin, which improves skin condition fundamentally from deep inside.
What happens when the skin cells regenerate?
Skin regeneration results in the thickening of the skin, and the formation of a strong defensive barrier against environmental and non-environmental factors which could lead to the premature ageing of the skin.
Don't worry, PDRN is safe
Studies have shown that PDRN is safe.  It is also stable, with good biocompatibility that gives a long lasting and scaffolding effect.
This results in improvement on skin elasticity and hydration, recovery of skin balance, and improving skin tone and texture.
Skin balance is important, especially for oily or clogged skin
Skin balance refers to the restoration of the skin's PH (regulation of sebum secretion). This is relevant especially to those suffering from oily or clogged skin who require skin balance to maintain healthier skin conditions.
Then, what about Skin Boosters?
Essentially, Skin Boosters involve deeply hydrating processes that produce long-term effects. Their aim is to create a natural glow and a fresh look by gently and gradually smoothening the skin.
Did you know that the term "Skin Boosters" was trademarked?
Restylane Skinboosters Vital by Galderma
While many people may be familiar with the hyaluronic acid-based Skin Boosters treatment, not many know that the term "SkinBoosters" was originally trademarked by Galderma for the marketing purposes of their product range - Restylane Vital and Vital light fillers.
Restylane fillers activate healthy hydro balance
Restylane fillers can help regenerate the hydro balance process and at the same time enhance the elasticity of the skin from within. In addition, the fillers increase rehydration capabilities.
The hydro lifting effect raises the contours and profiles of the face, which results in a firmer and more youthful jawline.
If skin dryness is a predominant problem, go for Skin Boosters
Dr Chew usually recommends the Restylane Skinbooster treatments first when skin dryness is a concern. He suggests a series of 3 separate treatments spaced one month apart from each other.
Both Rejuran and Skin Boosters are administered the same way
Rejuran is administered in the same fashion as Restylane Skin Boosters as intradermal injections. 
Yes, both of them can be used together
According to Dr Chew, it’s a good idea to combine both Rejuran and Skin Booster to achieve a synergistic effect. However, they must not be administered in the same session.
A series of 3 treatments one month apart are recommended for a continued and lasting effect.
