Profhilo Treatment Singapore
What is Profhilo?
Known as 逆時針 or “Time Reversing Injection”, Profhilo is the latest multi-purpose injectable treatment for skin rejuvenation, hydration and collagen stimulation.
Its main selling point? Profhilo delivers FIVE times more Hyaluronic Acid (HA) than Skinboosters into the layers of the skin. HA is the key ingredient that keeps skin well glowing and well hydrated, giving it the much sought after “Korean glass skin” appearance.
Since 2015, it has gained popularity in Europe as a quick and relatively painless treatment with minimal downtime because only FIVE injection points are required for each half of the face!
- Increased production of Elastin and Collagen
- Firmer, tighter, “bouncier” skin
- Improved skin quality
- Enhanced glow
- Hydration booster
How does Profhilo work?
Profhilo has one of the highest concentrations of Hyaluronic acid (HA) on the market - 64mg in 2mls. In comparison, Restylane Skinboosters only has 20mg / ml.
Profhilo is unique because it is a hybrid that contains 2 types of non-cross-linked HA:
- Low molecular weight HA (L-HA) retains moisture and hydrates skin.
- High molecular weight HA (H-HA) lifts the skin by providing a stable hyaluronic acid structure in the skin dermis in order to give a volumetric lift.
The hybrid HA combination allows for a slow release of active ingredients to deliver sustained and long-lasting hydration + bio-remodelling.
In addition, Profhilo is free of additives such as BDDE and Lycodine. These additives can cause lumps to form in other types of skinboosters/fillers treatments.
What is Bio Remodelling?
Profhilo rejuvenates the skin and increases collagen and elastin production in the different layers of the skin by:
- Stimulating fibroblasts
- Activating Keratinocytes
- Supporting Keratinocyte viability and promoting wound healing
- Recruitment of stem cells in adipocytes and improving fat tissue renewal for youthful looking skin
Which Areas Can Profhilo Treat?
Profhilo can be used in almost all areas for skin rejuvenation.
- Forehead and Eye area
- Cheeks, Lower face, Chin
- Neck and Décolletage
- Arms, Hands
- Chest and Abdomen
- Depressed acne scars
5 Point BAP technique - What is special about it?
Unlike Skinboosters or Rejuran, Profhilo only needs 5 points per cheek for treatment of the whole face!
The 5 Bio Aesthetic Points (BAP) are specially selected areas of the face that have no large blood vessels or nerve branches, thereby minimizing the risk of bruising and improving safety while allowing for maximal diffusion of Profhilo’s hybrid HA complex across the entire face.
With only 5 injection points per cheek, discomfort and downtime is minimal to none.
In total, there are 10 injection points for the entire face. Each treatment requires 2cc of Profhilo.
Prior to treatment, Dr Edwin will map out the 5 BAP points on each side of the face before numbing cream is applied. Immediately after treatment, a small raised bump/swelling may be seen at the injection points.
Discomfort is minimal to none.
These bumps will disappear after a few hours as Profhilo diffuses into the skin. An intensive recovery cream can be applied to speed up this process.
Side effects such as bruising is rare and usually mild.
How often is the treatment done?
For best results, the first 2 to 3 sessions of Profhilo® should be administered once a month for 2 to 3 months. Subsequently, for maintenance, each session should be repeated every 6-9 months.
