Does It Really Work? Profhilo Explained
What is Profhilo?
Profhilo revitalizes your skin with its re-modelling treatment. It provides a refreshing look with an enhanced glow in your complexion by encouraging the generation of collagen and elastin elements.
It is the best non-invasive method using injectable Hyaluronic acid, which provides revitalizing results with the lowest downtime. This injectable treatment fares much better than filler or skin booster techniques.
The Profhilo Singapore procedure can benefit you in several ways with its single bio-remodelling treatment. Compared to conventional skin booster techniques, it injects five times extra acid, which reduces skin laxity by hydrating the sagging skin. A gradual release of acid stimulates the production of natural skin boosters, namely, collagen and elastin. It results in a lifting effect by restoring skin integrity and improving skin wrinkle lines.
How does it work?
It works by using the dual approach of releasing two types of acid in a single treatment.
It used the NAHYCO hybrid technology to mix L-HA and H-HA in its acid formulation by adding low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acids.
It gradually releases L-HA to hydrate your skin to offer a hydro effect. Similarly, H-HA provides a lifting effect by re-modelling skin tissues at three levels – epidermis, dermis, and skin’s fat tissue layer.
The acid gradually spreads to last for four weeks because its mixture is thermally cross-linked and not chemically. A gradual release of acid stimulates four types of collagen and elastin – Type 1,3,4 and 7. It does not change your face shape or add volume but provides a lifting and tightening effect.
Moreover, there are no additives like BBDE or Lycodine in Profhilo. It implies a lower risk of lump formation because the acid spreads homogeneously and gets absorbed in the skin for safer results.
What are the benefits of this treatment?
- It hydrates the skin deeply.
- It can treat fine lines and wrinkles.
- It stimulates collagen and elastin production.
- There are lower risks of lump formation due to the non-BDDE formulation.
- It is amongst acids with the highest concentration of HA – 64mg per 2ml.
What is the Profhilo Treatment Process?
First of all, the doctor marks the BAP (Bio Aesthetic Points) injection points. BAP ensures an optimum spread of HA in the facial skin. It needs only five BAPs for each face side.
After applying a local numbing cream, the doctor carefully injects Profhilo at those BAPs. Since it is a non-invasive technique involving only a few BAPS, and the side effects are minimum. The risk to your nerves and blood vessels is also minimal.
Who is Suitable for this Treatment?
This treatment is appropriate for all patients with low to medium skin ageing symptoms, including fine lines and wrinkles. This method hydrates your skin to rejuvenate and tighten it.
If you are looking for glowing skin without using Botox or dermal fillers, Profhilo can remove fine lines and wrinkles by gently lifting your skin and improving its texture.
This treatment is suitable for both male and female patients. Male patients may be slightly apprehensive, but this re-modelling treatment does not alter your facial features or shape. It implies that it will not lead to a feminine look in male patients.
Is Profhilo safe?
Until now, it has been relatively safe. Patients who report some swelling are due to injections and not due to the ingredients injected in the skin. The swelling will usually resolve by itself within 24 hours.
Several studies on Profhilo have confirmed that it is safe to inject Hyaluronic acid into your skin.
