What is Aquatic Light Injection?

Hydroxyapatite injections are skin texture improvement procedures in which selected agents are injected directly into the shallow layer of the skin, called the dermis, according to your concerns. The effects vary widely depending on the drug selected. We will select the drug that is best suited for you according to your concerns and desires.

In addition to the drug, the machine itself has the effect of skin regeneration and collagen increase through the body's own "wound healing" mechanism by injecting a fine needle.

Effects of water-light injections

The effects obtained from the drugs injected in aqueous light injections vary. The following is a list of effects commonly obtained with many agents.

Moisturizing Skin

Improvement of elasticity and luster

Improvement of fine lines and wrinkles

Improvement of pore size and blackheads

Improvement of dullness and tone

Skin texture improvement

Improvement of acne and acne scars

Characteristics of Aquatic Light Injection

Choice of preferred agents available

You can choose from a variety of drugs popular in Korea, such as Jubeluk and Rejelan, according to your preference.

A physician can diagnose and recommend the best drug for you.

Even if you say, "I don't know what to do...," our doctors will examine you and suggest some of the best drugs for you.

Short treatment time

In the case of injecting the entire area by a doctor, it is necessary to inject one area at a time, but in the case of the Mizuho Injection, there are 9 needles attached, and 9 needles can be injected in one shot, which speeds up the procedure.

Can approach deep into the skin

Because active ingredients can be injected directly into the "dermis," the deeper layers of the skin, the drug is effective from within the skin.

Reduce pain with the system of injecting while suctioning.

Water-light injections are performed with suction at the moment the needle is inserted. This suction mechanism has been shown to reduce pain compared to simply inserting the needle.

Background of the development of water-light injections (mechanical injection)

The water-light injection machine has been in use in Japan since around the 2010s.

As a background of development,"Solving 'issues' in manual injection by physicians "It seems that the developer-manufacturer had the objective of

Let us introduce you to the challenges of "physician hand injections".

*Please note that this is not an issue that applies to all physicians, as there are differences in their technical skills.

(1) Difficult to maintain consistency

You can imagine that with manual injections, it is difficult to keep the depth of injection and dosage constant. As a result, it has been said that there can be variations in quality from one area of the face to another and from one treatment to another.

(2) Highly technology-dependent/personnel-dependent

Regarding (1), conversely, it would not be an issue if the physician's technical skills were high. On the other hand, not all physicians have high technical skills, so there was a situation where it depended on the technical skills of individual physicians.

(3) Time efficiency

Manual treatment can be time consuming, making it difficult to treat a large number of customers.

(4) Accuracy loss due to fatigue

In the case of manual placement, since concentration is required for depth and dosage, examining and treating a variety of clients in a single day could lead to a loss of accuracy due to fatigue.

(5) High price because only physicians can perform the procedure.

Even with good injectable formulations, only physicians could perform injectable procedures. Because of the wide variety of tasks that only a physician can perform, the price is higher when a physician performs the procedure.

The above five issues led to the development of the "Injection Machine = Suikoh Injection" to solve these problems.

In other words, we hope that you will recognize that a machine that has the performance to solve the above problems is a water-light injection.

Although this way of writing may lead you to think that "hydro-optic injections are superior to physician-assisted injections," this is not universally true. Next, I will explain the good and bad points (limitations) of each.

Which is better, water-light injections or a doctor's manual injection?

What I have just said might lead you to perceive that "water light injections are superior to physician hand injections" or that "water light injections are superior to physician hand injections".

In conclusion, the best and superior method of treatment depends on the customer's situation and objectives.

Each treatment method has its good points and bad points (limitations), as well as its own unique value that only a physician's injection can provide.

We will explain what good and bad points (limitations) exist from the customer's point of view.

Good points about water light injections

  • Differences in technical skills are less likely to occur, making it easier to receive treatment with peace of mind, regardless of the clinic.
  • Receive the formulation you want to receive at a lower price than a physician's manual

Bad points (limitations) of water light injections

  • In some cases, the injectable product cannot be injected into the skin 1001 TP3T and may leak a few 1 TP3T. In the case of manual injection by a physician, 1001 TP3T can basically be injected. Therefore, it may be wasteful in the case of expensive injectable formulations.
  • Since the depth of injection and dosage cannot be customized in detail, if you have different problems in different areas of your face, you cannot inject at the depth and dosage optimized for each area.

Good point about physician hand injections.

  • Injection depth and dosage can be customized according to each customer's skin condition, concerns, and desires for each area.
  • Injection formulation can be injected into 100% skin with almost no leakage
  • Depending on the physician's proficiency, the procedure may be faster and less painful than aqueous light injections.

Bad Points (Limitations) of Physician Manual Injection

  • Different doctors will have different technical skills. High degree of impersonality.
  • Price is higher compared to hydroxyapatite injections because there are other services that only a physician can perform.

Please review the above good and bad points (limitations) and try to choose the method that best suits your needs.

List of drugs for water light injections at Smart Skin Clinic

We have prepared a wide variety of drugs to meet a wide range of your concerns and wishes. You can tell us what drugs you are looking for, or if you are not sure, we can suggest the best treatment based on a doctor's examination.

Juvelook

A very popular formulation in Korea, approved by the U.S. FDA and the Korean KFDA. *FDA and KFDA are the equivalent of Japan's Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare.

In fact, it has received the Korean ConsumerAward for 2022 and 2023 consecutively. In addition, more than 400,000 people in Korea have already received the award. (As of December 2023).

The ingredients include non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid and polylactic acid (PDLLA: Poly-DL-lactic acid). After injection, they are slowly absorbed into the body over a period of one to two years, during which time they stimulate fibroblasts to naturally increase collagen and elastin, and a lasting effect can be expected.

Exosome

Exosomes are noted for their anti-aging properties and are expected to regenerate and rejuvenate the skin.

Smart Skin Clinic uses exosomes with a purity of 991 TP3T derived from umbilical cord.

JALUPRO (Classic)

This preparation has been in use since 2005 and has been used in more than 1 million cases. It is also called "Milan injection" because the production plant is located in Milan, Italy.

Ingredients include low molecular weight non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid + 4 amino acids as main ingredients.

To learn more about JalPro, please also see below.

SUNEKOS

Made in Italy and CE Mark Class IIIReceived approval for conformity with European safety standardsIn Europe, it has been approved as a medical device for injections.

The main ingredients are non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid and six amino acids. The ratio of hyaluronic acid and amino acids in the formula is an internationally patented special formula. This ratio has been proven to be efficient in the production of collagen and elastin.

To learn more about Snechos, please also see below.

Rejuran (HB)

The ingredients include polydeoxynucleotides (PDRN) extracted from salmon DNA. Because it is made from salmon, it is sometimes called "salmon injection.

Polydeoxynucleotides" have a variety of effects, including increased production of growth factors, promotion of capillary circulation, anti-inflammatory effects, and DNA resynthesis.

Rejuran also contains an ingredient called astaxanthin, which has a high antioxidant effect and is said to be about 1,000 times more potent than vitamin E.

Chiara Reju (≒ Riduranje Generic)

Rejuran is called a PDRN (polynucleotide) formulation, and the manufacturing process utilizing this PDRN was patented. Recently, this patent has expired, and several formulations using PDRN have emerged.

Chiara Reju is a formulation in which PDRN is the main ingredient and stands like a generic formulation of Rejuran.

Function of non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid

Non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid injected into the skin is gradually absorbed by osmosis. The process of penetration and absorption stimulates cells called fibroblasts. Fibroblasts activate collagen and elastin, tissues that produce skin firmness and luster.

This mechanism of action improves the natural firmness and luster of the skin.

Those who are not eligible for the treatment

Basically, it is possible to perform the procedure unless you have some serious illness or inflammation in the area to be treated.

The following information is provided for reference only, as we are obliged to include it to inform "those who are not eligible for the treatment".

  • Pregnant or nursing mothers
  • Persons with abnormal immune function or with a history of such abnormality, and persons receiving immunosuppressive therapy.
  • Those prone to keloid formation, hypertrophic scars and hyperpigmentation
  • Those with bleeding tendency or using non-steroidal anti-inflammatory analgesics such as aspirin or anticoagulants such as warfarin
  • Excessive sunburn, eczema, dermatitis, highly inflamed acne, or scabs at the site of drug injection

Risks and Side EffectsDowntime

Risks, side effects, and downtime may mean almost the same thing to you, so we will explain them all together.

In water-light injections, the drug is injected through a stamp-like object with 9 needles. Therefore, the following reactions will occur.

Redness, swelling (puffiness), and pain occur at the site of injection.

Above Response,The time period varies from a minimum of 2 days to a maximum of 10 days, depending on the individual. On average, it takes 3~5 days.

Here are two examples of the condition immediately after the treatment. As you can see, even under the same conditions, there will be individual differences depending on the skin type and constitution.

Another point I will always tell you,Internal bleeding."This is about the possibility of the occurrence of This one may be incorrectly perceived, so we will explain it carefully.

First, please see below.

Due to the nature of the treatment, internal bleeding may occur at the needle puncture site, although not always. If internal bleeding does occur, it will gradually disappear over a period of one to two weeks.

As described here, internal bleeding occurs with a certain frequency (about 3~101 TP3T).

Internal bleeding is when a needle strikes a "blood vessel" (called a vein) under the skin and causes a slight break in the vessel, causing it to bleed and clot.

In other words, to prevent this from happening, it is better if the vein does not hit a blood vessel, but these blood vessels (veins) are very thin and run differently (where they are located) from person to person. Therefore, it is not possible to prevent 100%.

At Smart Skin Clinic, we strive to reduce the risk of internal bleeding as much as possible. We hope you will understand this when you come to our clinic.

Example of downtime

The area injected with the drug has a mildInflammation."The company is now in the process of

Inflammation is simply put.It's a state in which the body is doing its best to get back to normal."We can say. They are doing their best to improve the injection site, so it is best to leave them alone.

Common among "what not to do within 24 hours" are "excessive blood flow and heat." These can promote inflammation, which can result in a condition called "inflammatory hyperpigmentation" and slow healing.

FAQ

Does it work after just one visit?

Of course, it is effective even if it is done once. Some drugs are more effective when repeated in sets of 3 or 4 times.

What is the difference from regular hyaluronic acid injections?

Conventional hyaluronic acid injections create volume by "physically" placing hyaluronic acid under the skin. The non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid used in water-light injections penetrates like a lotion, stimulating the skin's fibroblast cells to naturally produce collagen, etc., thereby creating volume.

Can I wear makeup after the procedure?

We recommend that you avoid it for about 24 hours, as it leaves small holes all over your skin.

Why is it called "water light injections"?

It has come to be called "suiko-kin" (water-glow skin) to describe the watery, glowing, and beautiful skin of a Korean actress. Since the "injections" aim to achieve such "water-glow skin," it was named "suiko-injections.
