All You Need to Know About this Injectable Skincare

Do you have wrinkles? Are you looking for a treatment to reduce their appearance? You’re not alone. After all, it’s only natural that we want to look our best at any age and as the years go by, skin ages too. There is good news when it comes to wrinkles: there are treatments available that can help make your skin look youthful again! One of these treatments is called Profhilo.

What is Profhilo?

Profhilo Singapore is a patented technology of bio-remodelling injectable. It is the first BDDE-free stabilised hyaluronic acid (HA) based product that addresses skin laxity and signs of ageing through the bio-stimulation of collagen, elastin and adipocytes stem cells that are lost through skin ageing.

What Does Profhilo Do?

Profhilo is a one-time treatment that works by stimulating your own body’s natural ability to replace lost collagen and elastin in aging skin. It is injected directly into targeted areas of the face, namely around the mouth, cheeks and on top of the cheekbones. The product promotes natural healing processes that lead to long-term correction of wrinkles (dynamic long lasting effects), improvement of texture (visibly smoother, plumper skin) and volume loss due to aging or weight loss (static long term effect).

How Does Profhilo Work?

Profhilo Singapore contains both low molecular and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid. Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid (L-HA) works by retaining moisture to the skin, giving a plumping effect. It acts like an injection of instant volume to the targeted area, and it gives you natural-looking results that will last 6 months or more. The beauty of low molecular weight hyaluronic acid is that it provides visible results right away without downtime so you can get back to your busy schedule quickly after treatment! Another benefit of L-HA is that its existing small molecule forms are able to penetrate easily into skin layers without affecting any underlying tissues and causing minimal injection pain.

High molecular weight hyaluronic acid (H-HA) also works by retaining moisture to the skin and giving a plumping effect. H-HA, however, does more than provide you with this temporary effect; it also provides a stable structure in the dermis to give a volumetric lift effect that lasts for up to 2 years! In addition, H-HA stimulates elastin and 4 types of collagen (types I, II, III and IV) to improve skin laxity and skin hydration while long lasting results are seen from stimulation of new adipocytes stem cells.

How Long Will My Results Last?

L-HA is designed for dynamic use. Its physical characteristics enable it to be effective at improving the appearance of wrinkles on the face by increasing volume immediately after treatment. The optimal average duration for this type of hyaluronic acid is 10-20 months.

H-HA is designed for static use and it provides long lasting stimulation of tissue remodelling at target areas. The results can last up to 2 years after injection.

Who is Profhilo Suitable For?

Profhilo is recommended if you are bothered by wrinkles on the face, especially around your mouth, cheeks or above your eyes (crow’s feet). It is also ideal if you are looking to improve skin laxity and ageing signs in other parts of the face such as around the jawline, neck and eye area that may be due to either natural aging process or weight loss. If you have a concern about sagging skin under your cheekbones, this treatment can help correct that too.

What Type of Results Can I Expect from Profhilo?

Results depend on the individual but new collagen will be produced when HA is administered and once it becomes a part of the dermis layer, it will stimulate collagen, elastin and adipocyte stem cells. The result will be a plumping effect or volume loss due to aging or weight loss can be corrected to give an overall improvement in skin texture.
