Skinboosters are injectable skin treatments that are designed to improve skin quality and appearance. Here are some key things to know about them:
Skinboosters contain hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that occurs naturally in the skin. The injections replenish hyaluronic acid levels in the skin, helping it stay hydrated and more youthful looking. They are often used to treat signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, and dryness. The hyaluronic acid helps plump up skin, erase lines, and give skin a dewy, hydrated glow. Skinboosters can also help with skin texture issues. The injections can help minimize pores, even skin tone, and give skin an overall smoother appearance. They provide hydration that lasts about 6 months typically, but individual results can vary. Repeat treatments are needed to maintain the effects. Skinboosters are considered safe, non-invasive injectables with minimal downtime. There may be temporary swelling, redness, or bruising at injection sites. They are not used just for the face, skinboosters can also be used to rehydrate and improve the look of skin on the neck, chest, hands and other areas.
In summary, skinboosters help to deliver deep yet gentle skin rejuvenation and hydrate the skin for a glowing, youthful complexion without volumizing the areas they are injected into.
At Aestha Clinic we offer a variety of skinboosters and the most suitable one for your unique needs will be selected at the time of your initial consultation with one of our regenerative dermatology experts.
Polynucleotides: ageing prevention at the cellular level
There are some exciting emerging trends regarding the use of polynucleotides to potentially slow or prevent aspects of aging at the cellular level:
Telomerase Activation – Telomeres are DNA-protein caps on the ends of chromosomes that protect them from damage. Telomeres shorten with each cell division, eventually leading cells to stop dividing. Activating the enzyme telomerase can lengthen telomeres, allowing cells to divide longer. Polynucleotides like modified mRNA have shown promise in activating telomerase when delivered to cells. This approach aims to lengthen cellular lifespan.
Cellular Reprogramming – Delivering specific sets of polynucleotides like mRNAs into aged cells can induce cellular reprogramming, driving the cells back to a more youthful, stem cell-like state. This reverts many age-associated changes. This approach could enable rejuvenation of tissues by reprogramming cells in situ rather than having to replace cells.
Epigenetic Rejuvenation – Aging leads to altered epigenetic patterns like DNA methylation that change gene expression. Delivering polynucleotides targeting epigenetic modifying enzymes could help “re-pattern” the epigenome into a more youthful profile. This drives gene expression changes to restore cellular function.
In summary, polynucleotide treatments offer exciting ways to manipulate fundamental aging processes in cells. Translating these to humans still requires much work, but trend wise, this area provides major promise for developing interventions that may significantly increase healthspan in the future through cellular rejuvenation.
We have a range of Polynucleotide treatments available at Aestha Clinic, involving different products, treatment protocols and techniques. The best one for you will be determined after one of our regenerative aesthetic specialists assess your unique needs.
Biohacking: combining a holistic approach from IV drips to cellular level treatments such as exosomes
Biohacking : combining a holistic approach from IV drips to cellular level treatments such as exosomes. An interesting point about taking a holistic biohacking approach that spans from intravenous therapies to cutting-edge cellular-level treatments like exosomes.
Intravenous micronutrient therapies have grown in popularity in the biohacking world. Key rationales include:
- High dose vitamins/minerals to overcome deficiencies
- Antioxidant blends to counter oxidative stress
- Amino acids mixtures to support protein synthesis
- Peptide blends for anti-aging effects
- Enzyme blends to improve metabolic function
Though evidence is limited, many report improvements to energy, recovery, and overall wellness from IV nutrient cocktails. They likely complement other lifestyle biohacks.
At the other end of the biohacking spectrum lie exosomes – nano-sized vesicles secreted by stem cells and involved in cellular signaling. Emerging evidence suggests exosome therapy may unlock regenerative anti-aging benefits at a fundamental biological level.
Research indicates exosomes:
- Stimulate tissue repair
- Reduce inflammation
- Regulate immune function
- Optimize cellular metabolism
- Support epigenetic shifts towards youth gene expression
At Aestha Clinic we have adopted a holistic model that seeks to combine safe, complementary modalities spanning intravenous nutrition, lifestyle biohacks via diet/exercise/stress-management, cutting-edge cellular treatments, and longer-term regenerative medicine advances. Our Wellness Clinic and Private medical services offer a multi-dimensional approach to health, wellbeing as well as ageing prevention. This biotechnological plus lifestyle approach to biohacking offers the greatest health and anti-aging potential.

The boom of RF microneedling in combination with abliative lasers, the incredibly popular co2 laser resurfacing. 2023 saw amajor trend towards combining energy-based devices for skin rejuvenation, especially radiofrequency (RF) microneedling and ablative lasers like CO2 laser resurfacing. This trend is likely to continue in 2024 and years to come.
Some key points:
RF microneedling uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin along with RF energy to deeply heat the tissue. This stimulates new collagen and elastin for firming, tightening and scar remodeling.
Ablative lasers like CO2 remove outer layers of skin, targeting irregularities. This intense resurfacing triggers skin to regrow smoother with improved tone/texture. It thoroughly rejuvenates but requires downtime for healing.
Using these modalities in a combined, sequential approach leverages benefits of both. RF microneedling non-invasively firms the skin as a base. A full-resurfacing CO2 laser is then laid over top to smooth surface irregularities like wrinkles, scars and pigment. Multiple smaller CO2 laser sessions can also follow RF microneedling to achieve gradual skin refinement with quicker recovery times.
In summary, hybrid therapy with physical micro-injuries from RF microneedling, paired with ablative erbium or CO2 lasers is an extremely popular combination. It provides both deep dermal remodeling and surface-level skin renewal for integrated, youthful-looking skin. Patient demand will likely drive continued growth and innovation in the field. Stay tuned.
New IV Elixir Drip
The pink gluthatione 2500mg with kojic acid is a powerful skin brightening and detoxification, stemcell infusion.This popular Vitamin Drip contains the master antioxidant Glutathione paired with Kojic Acid, as well as synergising B and C Vitamins and has been designed to aid the body to eliminate excess toxins, replenishing vital ingredients needed to help DNA and collagen synthesis and repair.
What is Glutathione?
Glutathione is an antioxidant that exists naturally within our cells. It helps fight cellular damage from free radicals and supports the immune system. Oral glutathione supplements tend to have poor bioavailability because glutathione gets broken down in the GI tract before reaching systemic circulation. IV infusions bypass this issue by delivering glutathione directly into the bloodstream for 100% absorption and allowing high concentrations to reach cells and tissues. Potential benefits of glutathione include boosting immunity, increasing energy levels, slowing aging processes, speeding recovery, reducing inflammation, and aiding detoxification within the body.
What is Kojic Acid
Kojic acid is an increasingly popular skin brightening ingredient, especially for treating pigmentation issues. Kojic acid works by suppressing melanin production in the skin. It inhibits an enzyme called tyrosinase which is involved in the first steps of melanin biosynthesis. By slowing down melanin synthesis, kojic acid helps reduce overproduction of pigment which can lead to development of dark spots, melasma, freckles, and uneven skin tone. With regular use, kojic acid gently but effectively fades discoloration and hyperpigmentation to achieve brighter, more uniform skin tone. Some studies show comparable efficacy to the gold standard skin lightener hydroquinone.
Combining glutathione and kojic acid therapies together can have synergistic skin brightening and anti-aging benefits. Glutathione works internally whereas kojic acid works topically, so they make an excellent combined approach.
Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant helps reduce oxidative stress and free radical damage to skin cells. It also inhibits melanin production. This helps even out skin tone.
Kojic acid is an inhibitor of tyrosinase – a key enzyme involved in making melanin. By decreasing melanin production, kojic acid improves hyperpigmentation.
Using both minimizes pigment formation via complementary chemical pathways for more potent lightening of dark spots, melasma, freckles, sun and age spots than either alone. Glutathione also boosts collagen in deeper skin layers while kojic softens surface texture for smoother-looking skin. The combination provides layered anti-aging support: glutathione nourishing skin cells + kojic accelerating skin renewal. So, in tandem, glutathione combined with a kojic acid IV infusion can yield excellent synergy – doubling up on melanin suppression while targeting skin rejuvenation from the inside to the outside.
