Profhilo is the first non-BDDE hyaluronic acid injectable for skin hydration. It has the highest concentration of HA in the market (64mg/2cc). Profhilo is thermally bound to generate stabilized hybrid complexes of low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid. The thermally cross linked hyaluronic acid hybrid is slowly released and spreads out under the skin, allowing it to last longer for bio remodeling of the skin.
Profhilo is suitable for all skin types or anyone who is suitable for standard dermal filler treatments. Profhilo is especially recommended for those with dehydrated skin and those with fine lines and wrinkles. It is safer than most hyaluronic acid-based treatments for skin ageing.
Unlike Skinboosters or Rejuran which requires a series of micro injections over the face, Profhilo only needs 5 points per cheek for treatment of the whole face or treatment area. This means that for face treatment, a total of 10 injection points are needed (5 on each side) as compared to other.
Skinbooster treatments which require at least 30 injection points. These 5 Bio Aesthetic Points are selected areas of the face or treatment area that have no large blood vessels or nerves branches.
This minimises the risk of bruising while allowing for maximal diffusion of Profhilo’s hybrid hyaluronic acid complex across the entire face or treatment area.
Prior to treatment, your doctor will map out the 5 injection points and apply numbing cream. Unlike traditional injection techniques, 0.2ml of Profhilo is carefully injected into the specific injection points.
During this time, the slow release of hyaluronic acid stimulates four different types of collagen and elastic. The low molecular wight hyaluronic acid provides a hydrating effect; while the high molecular weight hyaluronic acid provides a lifting effect. Together, both stimulate collagen and elastin at different depths of the skin.
While hydrating effects of Profhilo can be seen after one session, generally for most patients, about 2 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart are recommended for optimal results.
Patients with moderate saggy skin may require another 1 or 2 sessions in order to see a lifting effect. Thereafter, two maintenance sessions every 6 months is recommended.
While both treatments share similarities, Profhilo contains a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid. Profhilo also contains a unique combination of high and low weight hyaluronic acid molecules.
While Profhilo and Skinboosters both give skin hydration, Profhilo provides the additional advantage of bio-remodelling effects for healthier and younger skin. Due to Profhilo’s ability to improve collagen and elastin formation in the skin, another benefit Profhilo has that Skinboosters doesn’t is a non-surgical skin tightening and lifting effect.
Profhilo is injected with a different technique and depth with its 5 Bio Aesthetic Points, while Skinboosters are injected with a series of micro injections just under the skin.
