Hybrid Cooperative Complex HA injectable for Skin Remodelling
What is Profhilo?
Profhilo injectable treatment is a popular choice among aesthetic doctors in Singapore for addressing ageing skin concerns and enhancing facial features. This injectable treatment stands out among the array of dermal fillers available in the region, as it primarily focuses on rejuvenating the skin’s texture and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.
In Singapore, dermal fillers can generally be divided into two categories: temporary hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers and semi-permanent collagen-stimulating ones.
Profhilo, an HA-based injectable, can stay within the body for several months, providing lasting benefits before being naturally absorbed. This treatment not only revitalises ageing skin but also allows for augmentation of facial features, such as lips, nose, and cheeks, offering a comprehensive solution for those seeking to improve their appearance.
Profhilo treatment was launched in Europe a few years ago. The properties of the injectable are distinctly different from dermal fillers. It uses a unique BAP or bio aesthetic points technique that drastically changed the way doctors treat skin ageing in middle-aged people. Also known as “逆時針”, Profhilo has one of the highest HA (hyaluronic acid) concentrations in the market (64mg/2ml) – 5 times more than regular skinbooster. It is primarily used to stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, and adipocytes (fats) cells to combat skin laxity and signs of ageing.
How does Profhilo treatment work?
Step 1: Preparing The Skin
The treatment area is cleansed and, if necessary, numbed with a topical anaesthetic to ensure a comfortable experience during the injectable treatments.
Step 2: Administering Profhilo Injections
The practitioner will carefully inject the Profhilo solution, which contains a high concentration of hyaluronic acid, into the skin tissue. This hydrates and nourishes the skin, providing a skin lifting effect.
Step 3: Reacting With The Skin Tissue
As the Profhilo solution interacts with the skin tissue, it boosts hydration, leading to improved skin texture and a subtle skin lifting effect. The unique concentration of hyaluronic acid also aids in skin rejuvenation.
Step 4: Collagen Stimulation And Elastin Production
Over the next few weeks, the production of 4 different types of collagen and elastin will be stimulated, improving skin laxity and giving your skin a smoother, more youthful appearance.
Step 5: Follow-Up Treatments
To achieve optimal results, a series of Profhilo injections may be recommended, with each session spaced a few weeks apart. This ensures a consistent increase in collagen and elastin production, further enhancing the skin’s texture and lifting effect.
Step 6: Maintenance And Aftercare
After completing the recommended number of Profhilo injections, you can maintain your skin’s rejuvenated appearance with periodic touch-up sessions as advised by your practitioner. Proper skincare and sun protection are also crucial for preserving the effects of the Profhilo treatment.
What areas can Profhilo treat?
- Face: Profhilo can be applied to multiple facial areas, such as the forehead, cheeks, chin, and eyes. The hyaluronic acid in the treatment helps to plump, firm, and hydrate the skin, resulting in a more youthful and radiant appearance.
- Neck and décolletage: The neck and décolletage are often prone to wrinkles and skin laxity due to ageing and sun exposure. Profhilo treatment helps increase skin firmness in these areas through hydration, and collagen and elastin production.
- Arms: As we age, the skin on our arms can lose firmness and elasticity, leading to sagging and a wrinkled appearance. This injectable skincare treatment can improve overall skin tone and hydration.
- Knees: The skin around the knees can also show signs of ageing, with wrinkles and sagging becoming more prominent over time. By injecting hyaluronic acid through Profhilo treatment, the knees’ skin can regain its youthful appearance, becoming smoother, firmer, and more hydrated.
Benefits of Profhilo 5-Point Anti-Ageing Injectable
Slow Down Skin Ageing
Profhilo treatments effectively reverse and slow down the physiological process of skin ageing by offering the following benefits:
- Increased Skin Hydration: The high concentration of hyaluronic acid in Profhilo helps to deeply hydrate the skin, making it appear more supple and plump.
- Strengthening Elastic Fibres: Profhilo stimulates the production of elastin, which strengthens the skin’s elastic fibres, providing better resilience and firmness.
- Improved Collagen Production: The treatment promotes collagen synthesis in the dermis, leading to a more youthful-looking skin and reduced signs of ageing
- Stimulating Collagen Production: Profhilo encourages the production of collagen, which helps fill in depressed acne scars and improves the overall texture of the skin.
- Reducing Scar Appearance: By repairing dermal tissue and promoting skin regeneration, Profhilo treatments can effectively reduce the appearance of acne scars and other skin imperfections.
Achieve face lifting and corrective results without surgical intervention:
- Non-Invasive Treatment: Unlike surgical interventions, Profhilo treatments require minimal downtime and offer a less invasive alternative for those seeking skin lifting benefits.
- Natural-Looking Results: By stimulating the skin’s natural repair processes and collagen production, Profhilo helps achieve a subtle, natural-looking lift and contour improvement.
Side effects of Profhilo
The treatment does not cause any long-term side effects as it is biocompatible with the body and can be broken down completely.
Immediately after the treatment, you may experience some swelling, bruising, and/or pinpoint bleeding at the injection points. These side effects should subside within 24 hours.
Cost of Profhilo treatment in Singapore
Prices start from S$1,000. Price may vary slightly based on the doctor’s experience in administering filler treatments.
Differences between Profhilo and other HA dermal fillers
NUMBER OF INJECTION POINTS Unlike other skin-hydrating treatments such as skinboosters that require many injection points on the face, this treatment only requires five entry points on the face.
CONCENTRATION OF HA 5-Point Anti-Ageing Injectable has one of the highest concentrations of HA (64mg/2ml) among the different types of injectables in the market. Not only does it boost the moisture content in the treated area by rehydrating the skin, it also remodels ageing and sagging skin.
CONTENT OF INJECTABLE PARTICLES 5-Point Anti-Ageing Injectable the only known HA injectable in the world that constitutes a buffered physiological solution of high molecular weight (H-HA) and low molecular weight (L-HA) HA. The H-HA and L-HA molecules interact with each other to provide a rheological property that allows the doctor to administer the treatment easily without increasing the viscosity of the injectable.
POST-TREATMENT CARE It is a low G-prime injectable that it disperses very quickly beneath the skin to the rest of the face after the treatment. It does not require any post-treatment massage as it has minimal risk of leaving lumps of nodules that won’t go away.
