Acne is the ultimate bane of our existence, especially during our teenage adolescent days. The volcanic red bumps that ooze pus not only looks extremely unsightly, it also leaves a nasty scar for the unlucky. Unfortunately, I am one of the few unlucky ones that suffer from major acne scarring. No, I am not talking about the pigmentation scars that disappear after a couple of years. I am referring to the deeply pitted acne scars that last a lifetime. Even after clearing my acne, I am still plagued by the ugly pitted boxcar scars that are scattered all around my forehead and cheeks. For the longest time, it has affected my confidence and I could never post a photo up without photoshopping my scars away.
Fret Not, There's Hope!!!
Thankfully, Dr KS Wong heard my pleas and introduced Kowayo Baby Skin Booster (逆龄针), the LATEST scar fillers in Singapore, and I am so excited to share my amazing results in today's entry. THERE IS HOPE DARLINGS! You will never face the mirror the same way again!
So What Is Kowayo Baby Skin Booster?
Kowayo Baby Skin Booster is basically the name of the treatment coined by Kowayo Aesthetics whereby the use of Rejuran Healer, is administered in the form of micro injections to repair damaged skin. I am going to let you in on something extremely fascinating. Rejuran Healer is actually derived from Salmon DNA! Yup, you heard that right! Rejuan Healer is a new type of filler that contains Salmon Polynucleotide (PN) which is completely safe with ZERO side effects that packs a punch when it comes to reversing the signs of time. It is the only filler in the market now that can help improve the skin's quality as well as regenerate new skin cells for a healthier, youthful complexion.
Benefits of Rejuran Healer:
1. Promotes Skin Regeneration
Expect fuller, more youthful skin in just 3-5 days after the initial injection. It not only restores the epidermis, it will also increase the thickness of the dermis thus strengthening the skin's ability to withstand against natural factors like UV damage.
2. Smoothen Skin's Texture & Shrinks Large Pores
A victim of large pores or depressed acne scars? Fret not! Rejuran Healer is proven to shrink em' nasty pores as it is able to repair the skin from deep within the dermis. It is also the only filler that can fill up your scars whilst promoting skin regeneration. As such, your skin will gradually be smoother in texture even as the effects of the fillers wear off! Talk about killing two birds with one stone!
3. Increases Skin Elasticity, Your Anti-Ageing Wonder!
Rejuran Healer is a jab of anti-ageing goodness as it promotes skin recovery and elasticity when injected directly into the dermis (inner skin layer). It not only lifts the skin, it also brightens it up, thus giving you that healthy glow from within. You can now look younger in just 30 minutes!
Having gone through the process myself, I can vouch that you will be able to see VISIBLE improvement in your skin's texture, elasticity as well as the reduction of pore size with just one session! It is recommended to go through at least three for optimal results. I must say, the glow you get from Kowayo's Baby Skin Booster is extremely addictive! Your skin woes can finally be cured!
For all aesthetic procedures, there will be a consultation so that both the doctor and you are on the same page with regards to what you wish to achieve with his expertise. During my previous consultation with Dr Wong whereby I did HiQueen (you can read all about it here), I have expressed my concerns about the pitted acne scarring on my forehead. At that point of time, there were no suitable treatments available in Singapore but Dr Wong promised to bring in a filler to ease my worries. True enough, a couple of months later, Rejuran Healer landed on our sunny shores! During this consultation, Dr Wong confirmed that it would be the perfect filler to fill up those pitted scars and off we go into business.
Before embarking on the treatment, my makeup was gently removed by the nurse and a generous layer of numbing cream was applied to my face. Thank heavens because I was told that Baby Skin Boosters is actually much more painful than HiQueen! HiQueen was nothing for me but I dare not take my chances so I secretly requested for more numbing cream and left it on for approximately 40 minutes. Better be safe than sorry and absolutely no regrets!
Took me a lot of courage to post up this full no filter, no makeup photo of my bare skin showing all my insecurities... As you can see, my major scarring concerns are all concentrated on my forehead. Unlucky me also happen to have a HUGE forehead so everything seems amplified. Due to my severe scarring, I have resorted to photoshopping every single one of my selfies. To some, it may be me deceiving my audience, but you have no idea how much I detest looking at myself in front of the mirror. Photoshopping my scars became my only way to ever dream of having a smoother skin.

Unlike the usual Skin Boosters that is being administered using a machine, Kowayo Baby Skin Boosters is much more specific and precise and is hand injected by the doctor. Therefore, it is imperative that you find a good trustable doctor with steady hands. Lucky for me, I have Dr KS Wong, who was confident with his administration right from the start.
Before injecting, an ice pack was used to numb the area to lessen the pain. Dr Wong then chooses the area carefully to inject Rejuran Healer for optimal results. We started off at the forehead first because it was the most severe before moving on to my cheeks. The leftover product was then used along my T-Zone to shrink the pores. Yes, you read it right, the Baby Skin Boosters treatment can actually shrink your pores!!! Due to the excellent healing properties in Rejuran Healer, it can also be used as a preventive measure to delay ageing and help you achieve baby soft skin!
After administering the Baby Skin Boosters, my face was extremely red and bumpy! Was so worried because I had to rush off to a meeting after and clearly my face was not ready for it. Luckily, Kowayo Aesthetics has this super cool hydrogel mask that would instantly help to soothe the skin and reduce the redness. Check out how much my skin has improved just after the mask! Not too sure if this mask is being retailed at their clinic because I definitely NEED them in my life!
Was It Painful?
I would be lying if I said that this was painless. With my pain tolerance, I would rate this a good 6.5/10. Luckily, I had a generous layer of numbing cream applied before the treatment therefore it was much more bearable. Personally, the needle was painless. It was the injection of product beneath the skin that hurt. Even though my forehead looks so bloody and red, I felt the most pain along my cheeks nearing the lower jaw. Towards the end, you kind of get used to the pain and with the constant re-application of ice pack onto the treated area, you probably will feel more numbness than pain. The overall process was really bearable, no wonder girls from Taiwan would flock to their aesthetic clinics on a weekly basis just to get baby smooth skin!
For me, I would totally go through it a million times because the results were simply astounding. The results after just one session? ACTUAL BABY SOFT SKIN! You know the saying, no pain no gain. Literally, it was worth it to go through it all because you gain much more in the end.
Is There Downtime?
You will be amazed with what I am about to tell you next. The downtime is just 1 sleep away. Totally not kidding and I honestly did had my doubts when Dr Wong told me that my skin would look fine the following day. Those angry red bumps and blood on my face literally vanished the next morning. I was still contemplating if I should take leave from work but ended up waking to a skin that I have always dreamed of having. If you are wondering, I did not do anything extra to help with the de-swelling and simply went ahead with my normal routine. No idea how it happened but I am very certain that Rejuran Healer does help in rejuvenating the skin.
I AM SPEECHLESS! I can finally look in the mirror feeling more confident about my skin.
Here is the direct comparison of the Before & After treatment photo. Notice how much more lucent and younger my skin looks as well? Also, 10 points for my previous HiQueen session because my jawline is still as V as ever! As Baby Skin Boosters requires about 3 sessions to show its maximum potential, you can still see remnants of my deeper pitted scars on my forehead. However, the general texture on my face has significantly smoothen out and my skin looks more youthful and younger!
Above is the gradual change in my skin throughout the weeks after Baby Skin Boosters. As you can see, the scars on my forehead were slowly "recovering" and during my 6 week mark, it has smoothened out significantly. This is the power of Rejuran Healer, in just 4 weeks, it will help to recover the skin by thickening its density and thickness.
A little personal tip that I learnt myself throughout the entire experience is to curb drinking alcohol if you wish to prolong the effects of the treatment. Personally, I could notice the difference when I had a late night out and when I have a clean diet free of alcohol. Not too sure if it is clinically proven but I think alcohol does affect the overall results therefore if possible, try to abstain from it if you wish to achieve the full potential of Baby Skin Boosters.
In conclusion, I am extremely pleased with the results of Kowayo Baby Skin Boosters and am so thankful to the team behind Kowayo Aesthetics & GotIdeas PR for helping me with my scarring problems. I have been searching for solutions all over and finally, there is one available in Singapore that can permanently fix this for an extended period of time.
Just in case if you are wondering, the effects (with 3 sessions) will last up to a year or more! I honestly cannot wait for my next session as I was told that the results would be even better.
Nowadays, I can wake up and look into the mirror without feeling disgusted by my scars. I used to be so self conscious about my scars that I even wanted to cut bangs just so that I could hide them! Now, I can flaunt any hairstyle that suits me and I have only the wonderful Dr KS Wong, Kowayo Aesthetics and GotIdeas to thank for. With that, I hope you guys learnt a thing or two about the first ever scar fillers in Singapore and may you all have baby smooth skin in no time!
Thank you for reading and have a good one!
