The New Kid On The Block: Discover the Truth About Profhilo in SingaporeHealth
With so many options to choose from, it can be hard to decide which skin-enhancing treatment delivers the best result. Each brand claims to offer a plethora of benefits, throwing around enticing phrases like “dewy and plump skin”, “enhanced collagen production”, and “intense skin hydration” to encourage people to patronize their wares. Then there are treatments like skin boosters and dermal fillers that basically use the same key ingredient – hyaluronic acid – but each with a separate approach when it comes to skin enhancement. Lastly, what if there is an actual option that combines the benefits of these two popular treatments into one, hyper-charged solution?
Profhilo is a patented technology of self-distributing injectable. Neither a skin booster nor a filler, it is the only stabilized hyaluronic acid-based injectable that targets skin laxity and skin ageing symptoms through bio-stimulation of four different types of elastin, collagen, and proliferate adipose stem cells. Elastin and collagen are important in maintaining the elasticity of the skin, as both serve as the support structure of the skin. You can think of these two as the scaffolding that supports a building. The more elastin and collagen there are, the firmer the skin is. But as we age, the natural production of elastin and collagen are lessened and as a result, hyaluronic acid (HA) production is reduced, too, which makes the skin look wrinkly, saggy, and tired. If you have ever reached this inevitable point, then it is the perfect opportunity for you to explore the benefits of a treatment like Profhilo.
This article from MY Medical Aesthetics, a premier aesthetic clinic in Singapore, will talk about what Profhilo is, its technology and effects, and how it differs from other skin-enhancing treatments.
What is Profhilo?
Profhilo in Singapore offers one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market – 64mg/2ml – to intensely improve skin hydration and volume. It is a powerful solution that contains a hundred percent of both high molecular and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid. Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid acts as a water reservoir and provides moisture to the skin, similar to a skinbooster. On the hand, high molecular weight hyaluronic acid creates a stable HA structure in the dermis layer of the skin to give a huge volume lift. This is achieved by enhancing the production of endogenous hyaluronic acid natural elastin. The consistency of Profhilo is smoother than filler so it can spread out more evenly beneath the skin without the formation of lumps and bumps.
What is the technology behind Profhilo?
Profhilo uses a patented NAHYCO Technology where 32mg of high molecular HA (H-HA) and 32 mg of low molecular HA (L-HA) are bound together through thermal cross-linking to create Hybrid Cooperative Complex (HCC) Hyaluronic Acid. Aside from its hydrating properties, HCC acid also stimulates the production of elastin and collagen to address skin laxity.
As the only hyaluronic acid product that does not use any chemical-linking compounds, Profhilo is free from additives such as lycodine or BBDE. BBDE is an agent used in most HA fillers to improve biodegradability and stability.
If you are an adult who is experiencing skin laxity problems, with wrinkly and saggy skin, you can be an ideal candidate for a Profhilo treatment. You can consult our doctors at the MY Medical Aesthetics clinic for more information.
Profhilo versus Fillers versus Skinboosters
In part years, HA injections are only used for two purpose: adding volume to skin (like fillers) and hydration (like skinboosters). This is the part where Profhilo proves to be different. Even though it is also a hyaluronic acid-based product, it functions as an agent that remodels multi-layer skin tissue. Its high HA level proves that it has better hydrating effects when compared with skin boosters. Skin boosters can only restore hydration and improve skin elasticity at the treated area.
When used as a filler, hyaluronic acid helps achieve an instant lift by boosting the lost volume in the skin. However, fillers do not have much effect on the skin itself and does little to improve the skin texture.
Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, Profhilo is not capable of changing a person’s visage, thus it cannot be used to augment the chin, cheeks, and nose. It does, however, improve overall skin integrity in just two sessions at one month apart.
Our professional team at the MY Medical Aesthetics clinic will be glad to provide a detailed explanation of the pros and cons of each treatment.
Effects of Profhilo
Profhilo in Singapore is unique because it works in dermis, epidermis, and superficial fat layers to address and heal the source of ageing and not simply the symptoms. It also requires fewer injection points, which reduces discomfort and pain as well as bruising and swelling risks.
Other injectable forms of hyaluronic acids typically last for twelve to eighteen months. Asa bio-stimulator, the results of a Profhilo injection may take three to six months to be visible and it will last for about a year.
The application of Profhilo in Singapore also follows the Bio Aesthetic Points (BAP) technique for the lower face and neck. The BAP technique carefully selects certain points in the face to ensure a lower risk of complications by avoiding major blood vessels and maximizes the spread and coverage of the treated area. Profhilo is considered as an extremely low-risk procedure with minimal to no downtime. Nevertheless, you should consult a highly-trained aesthetics doctor prior to having any treatment done.
