What are Skin Healer & Skin Boosters?
Skin healers like Rejuran Healer speed up the skin’s natural healing process, while skin boosters such as Restylane Skinboosters can improve skin hydration.
While they tend to be categorised together due to their similar properties and effects, here are the differences between Rejuran Healer and skin boosters.
What is Rejuran Healer treatment?
Rejuran® Healer is an anti-ageing treatment made of highly purified polynucleotide or PN. It naturally rejuvenates the skin cells by stimulating growth factors to accelerate the skin’s natural healing process to reverse skin damage and increase collagen production.

Rejuran Healer is Europe CE-approved and Singapore HSA approved, and it can:
- Improve skin tightness
- Improve skin hydration
- Reduce wrinkles and fine lines
- Reduce pore size and improve acne scars
- Reduce inflammation and redness
- Improve skin texture, skin tone, and pigmentation
How does Rejuran Healer work?
Rejuran Healer is a treatment in Singapore with the active ingredient, polynucleotides (PN), a biological molecule which has regeneration ability. It works by stimulating the skin’s fibroblasts to produce collagen.
The magic in PN is traced back to salmon DNA, and is backed by scientific evidence. Scientists discovered that when they rub salmon DNA on human skin, subjects show improvements in skin elasticity, skin texture, and hyaluronic production (i.e. hydration).
Types of Rejuran Healer
Tighten saggy skin, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, minimise pore size, reduce inflammation, and improve skin tone and overall skin health.
Has a higher viscosity for treating acne scars. It fills up the dented surfaces and reduces the appearance of acne scars.
Has a lighter viscosity to treat the delicate under-eye area. It smooths out the crow’s feet and fine wrinkles around eyes and improves the elasticity of the treated area.
More about Rejuran S
Rejuran S has a higher viscosity as compared to Rejuran Skin Healer and is designed for treating depressed acne scars. The regeneration ability of Rejuran, coupled with the higher viscosity, stimulates the fibroblasts in our skin to produce collagen.
Rejuran S can:
- Treat acne scars
- Plump up depressed acne scars
- Stimulate skin’s fibroblast to produce collagen
- Smooth out skin and improve skin texture

What are skin boosters?
Hydrating skin boosters in Singapore are microinjections that improve skin hydration to keep skin smooth, firm, and plump. The hydrating Restylane Skinbooster treatment in Singapore introduces hyaluronic acid into the face, which is a natural compound found in our body that maintains hydration in the skin.

Skin boosters can:
- Improve skin hydration
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Brighten skin and improve skin radiance for a dewy look
- Improve skin elasticity and skin firmness
- Improve skin health and tone
- Reduce the appearance of acne scars
How do skin boosters work?
Skinboosters are moisturisers that deeply hydrate the skin from within; replenishing hyaluronic acid to our skin on a cellular level.
Restylane Skinbooster is a type of skin booster that contains hyaluronic acid that can integrate into the skin naturally to improve skin texture, skin elasticity, and skin tone. Microinjections deliver the hyaluronic acid to the middle layer of the skin.
Skin boosters do not shape nor volumise tissues like dermal fillers even though they both contain hyaluronic acid. The hyaluronic acid in skin boosters is used to improve skin hydration, skin health, and cell function to rejuvenate the skin.
Skinbooster treatments in Singapore can also stimulate our fibroblasts to improve collagen and elastin production, resulting in firmer, tighter skin. It thus also reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars.
Are skin boosters suitable for me?
In general, skin boosters can improve the following:
- Dehydrated, dull, or oily skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Loose, saggy skin
- Skin health, tone, and elasticity
Hence they are not just an anti-ageing treatment. Our skin also starts losing collagen from our mid- to late-twenties, and subsequently hyaluronic acid, which can be replenished by skin boosters.
However, it is recommended to consult a medical doctor who can prescribe a treatment suitable for your skin.
Differences between skin boosters, Rejuran, Profhilo
While the Restylane Skinbooster, Rejuran Healer, and Profhilo have similar effects on the skin and can all reverse the signs of ageing with healthier, brighter, and firmer skin, there are differences that set these three anti-ageing treatments in Singapore apart.

Combining skin healer and skin boosters
Skin boosters in Singapore can be used synergistically with Rejuran Healer, and Halley Medical Aesthetics’ Halley’s Baby Skin Healer Trio is a treatment designed by our doctors that combines the effects of both the Restylane Skinbooster and Rejuran Healer.
Halley’s Baby Skin Healer Trio
Halley’s Baby Skin Healer Trio is an anti-ageing treatment that combines Rejuran Healer, Restylane Skin Booster, and Micro-Botox, and it is delivered into the skin via injections right below the surface of our skin.
Skin boosters give a more immediate effect, Rejuran a more delayed and sustained effect, while intradermal Botox, or Micro-Botox, helps to tighten pores and reduce oil production.
When these are combined, Halley’s Baby Skin Healer Trio can:
Restore skin elasticity
Reduce fine lines
Improve acne scars
On its own, Micro-Botox is injected in very small doses on face areas such as the jawline, under-eye area, and cheeks. It makes the skin less oily with reduced pores, reduces fine wrinkles, addresses inflammation or acne, refines skin texture, and tightens the skin.
Post treatment care
Minimal post-treatment care is needed. Tiny bumps may remain over the injection site for up to one to two days. Needle marks, mild redness and bruises can occur but generally resolve rapidly and can be concealed with makeup.
*The use of these treatments is dependent on the clinical assessment and judgement of a medical professional. Please consult a medical doctor for an informed discussion on the use of these treatments.
