Profhilo Treatment Singapore

What is Profhilo?

Profhilo, also referred to in Mandarin as 逆時針 or "Time Reversing Injection," is an injectable treatment developed for skin rejuvenation, hydration, and collagen stimulation.

Profhilo contains a high concentration of hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a substance naturally present in the skin. HA is known for its ability to bind and retain water and this property helps to hydrate the skin and maintain its elasticity, contributing to a smoother appearance.

Introduced in 2015, Profhilo is administered via five strategic injection points per cheek. This method is designed to cover a broad area with a limited number of injections, facilitating a quick procedure with reduced discomfort and minimal downtime.

Benefits of Profhilo

Profhilo contains hyaluronic acid, which is involved in several skin functions:

  1. Production of Elastin and Collagen: Profhilo can support the skin's natural processes to increase the production of elastin and collagen which are essential for maintaining the skin's structure and elasticity.
  2. Skin Firmness and Elasticity: The treatment may help in making the skin appear firmer and more elastic, characteristics often associated with youthful skin.
  3. Skin Quality: Regular treatments can contribute to overall improved skin quality, seen in enhanced texture and tone.
  4. Skin Glow: The hydrating effect of hyaluronic acid can give the skin a more radiant and glowing appearance.
  5. Skin Hydration: Profhilo helps in boosting the skin’s hydration levels, useful for maintaining skin smoothness and plumpness.

How does Profhilo work in Singapore?

Profhilo contains a high concentration of hyaluronic acid (HA), providing 64 mg in 2 ml of the solution. This injectable is characterized by its formulation of two types of non-cross-linked HA:

  1. Low Molecular Weight HA (L-HA): This form of HA helps retain moisture and hydrates the skin.
  2. High Molecular Weight HA (H-HA): H-HA contributes to skin structure by providing support within the skin's dermis, which can help stimulate collagen and maintain skin volume.

The combination of these two forms of HA in Profhilo allows for a gradual release of the active ingredients, which helps to sustain hydration and support the skin’s structure over time.

Additionally, Profhilo is formulated without additives like BDDE and Lycodine, which can cause complications such as the formation of lumps.

How Profhilo Remodels the Skin?

How Profhilo Remodels the Skin

Profhilo aids in remodeling the skin through its high concentration of hyaluronic acid (HA), which influences various cellular processes:

  1. Stimulating Fibroblasts: The HA in Profhilo stimulates fibroblasts, which are cells crucial for producing collagen and elastin. This stimulation helps to rejuvenate the skin’s structural integrity.
  2. Activating Keratinocytes: Keratinocytes, the predominant cell type in the epidermis, are activated by HA. Their activation contributes to the maintenance and renewal of the skin’s outer layer.
  3. Supporting Keratinocyte Viability and Promoting Wound Healing: HA enhances keratinocyte viability, which can improve the skin’s healing processes and overall resilience.
  4. Recruitment of Stem Cells in Adipocytes: Profhilo also plays a role in recruiting stem cells within adipose (fat) tissue, which supports the renewal and maintenance of these cells, contributing to a more youthful appearance.

These actions combined enable Profhilo to remodel the skin, promoting increased production of essential structural proteins and enhancing cellular functions important for skin health and appearance.

Areas Treatable with Profhilo

Profhilo can be used for skin rejuvenation in a variety of areas across the body. Due to its versatile nature, it is suitable for treating several regions where improvements in skin quality, texture, and appearance are desired:

  1. Forehead and Eye Area
  2. Cheeks, Lower Face, and Chin
  3. Neck and Décolletage
  4. Arms and Hands
  5. Knees
  6. Chest and Abdomen

Profhilo 5 Point BAP technique

The 5 Point BAP (Bio Aesthetic Points) technique used with Profhilo is a distinctive method of application that enhances both the safety and efficacy of the treatment. Here are the key features of this technique:

  1. Strategic Injection Points: Profhilo requires only five injection points per cheek, strategically chosen to cover the entire face. This limited number of injection sites simplifies the treatment process.
  2. Safety Considerations: The chosen points are specifically selected for their safe locations, away from major blood vessels and nerve branches. This careful selection minimizes the risk of bruising and other complications.
  3. Maximal Diffusion: The placement of injections at these points allows for optimal spread of the hyaluronic acid across the skin of the face, ensuring that the rejuvenative effects are evenly distributed.
  4. Minimal Discomfort and Downtime: Due to the minimal number of injections and strategic placement, patients typically experience little to no discomfort and downtime.
  5. Treatment Volume: Each full-face treatment involves the use of 2cc of Profhilo, distributed across the 10 injection points.

Profhilo Treatment Experience in Singapore

The Profhilo treatment process is designed to ensure patient comfort and effectiveness. Here's what patients can typically expect:

  1. Pre-Treatment Preparation: Before starting the treatment, the doctor will map out the 5 BAP points on each side of the face. These are the strategic locations where the injections will be administered.
  2. Reducing Discomfort and Bruising: To minimize discomfort and the risk of bruising, an ice pack is applied to each injection site before the procedure begins.
  3. Post-Treatment Appearance: After the injections, patients might notice a small raised bump or swelling at each of the injection points. This is a normal response to the injection.
  4. Recovery: The bumps typically begin to flatten within a few hours as the hyaluronic acid starts to diffuse into the surrounding skin tissue. They generally resolve completely within 48 to 72 hours. To speed up the recovery process, an intensive recovery cream can be applied.
  5. Side Effects: Side effects, such as bruising, are rare and, if they occur, are usually mild.

How often is the Profhilo treatment done?

It is recommended that Profhilo be done once a month for the first 2 to 3 months. Subsequently, to maintain ideal results, Profhilo should be repeated every 6-9 months.

Profhilo Neck rejuvenation Singapore

Profhilo treatment for the neck helps to address concerns related to wrinkled or sagging skin in this area.

  1. Targeted Treatment: The treatment is aimed at improving the appearance of wrinkled or sagging skin on the neck.
  2. Collagen Stimulation: This treatment aims to stimulate collagen from deep within the skin, which can help in enhancing the skin’s structure and appearance.
  3. Strategic Injection Points: For safety and effectiveness, 10 specific points along the neck are chosen for injections. These points are carefully selected to avoid structures such as major blood vessels and nerves.
  4. Treatment Experience: The treatment process for the neck is similar to that for the face. An ice pack is applied prior to injection to minimize discomfort and reduce the risk of bruising.
  5. Post-Treatment Effects: After the injections, it is common to see small bumps and swelling at the injection sites. These typically resolve within a few days without requiring significant downtime.
  6. Minimal Discomfort: Discomfort during the procedure is generally minimal.
