If you’re looking for non-invasive facelift solutions, you’ve probably heard about Profhilo. But what is Profhilo in Singapore? How does it work?
What Exactly Is Profhilo?
Profhilo is a hyaluronic acid injectable treatment with the greatest concentration available. The hyaluronic acid it carries is higher than dermal fillers, despite the fact that it isn’t a dermal filler. Profhilo, unlike dermal fillers, may spread below the skin’s surface. It causes skin remodeling without increasing volume to the region in the face. It encourages the formation of four distinct forms of elastin and collagen in the skin over time. Skin elasticity, texture, and moisture all improve as a consequence. Despite the fact that the substance itself degrades after four weeks, the biostimulation results still carry on. This leads to considerable tissue improvement over the next few weeks.
What Makes Profhilo a Special Hyaluronic Acid Filler?
Profhilo injectable therapy is a clear, viscous gel that has one of the greatest amounts of synthetically stabilized hyaluronic acid as the active ingredient. This is a naturally occurring molecule that is important for a variety of uses, including hydration and the synthesis of new elastin and collagen fibers. When all of the bodily processes slow down with age, the hyaluronic acid concentration, and therefore collagen and elastin, decreases, resulting in more prominent manifestations of the visual indications of aging: elasticity loss, folds, poor turgor, wrinkles, and drooping.
Profhilo injections give significant moisture to the framework of dermal tissues because hyaluronic acid draws and attaches water molecules, allowing moisture to be retained for longer. It thoroughly rejuvenates the tissues from within, enhancing the inner processes of renewal and recovery, and making skin appear more radiant, healthier, and younger.
How is Profhilo Different from Other Injectable Fillers?
When comparing Profhilo to other dermal fillers, the main difference is the way the hyaluronic acid molecules bind together, and the goal of Profhilo is to hydrate the skin and help it in restoring itself, rather than to recover lost volume by filling in shallow regions in your skin tissue.
Profhilo, as a result, doesn’t add volume to the face and is not ideal for modifying facial characteristics such as defining cheekbones or plumping lips. Profhilo is similar to intensive skincare, but it works from the inside out.
How Does Profhilo Work?
Compared to numerous “classic” dermal fillers, Profhilo in Singapore is composed of two types of non-crosslinked hyaluronic acid that penetrates deeply your dermal tissues and stimulates the rejuvenation processes. First, Profhilo injectables improve hydration as the hyaluronic acid molecule is a great humectant that could hold moisture up to 1000x its weight.
That’s why Profhilo earns such popularity among individuals in their 30s and above, as it offers natural results, tender, soft, without visible invasion.
What Happens During My Treatment Session?
You would need five injections on the cheeks and lower face every side for the facial procedure. The whole process needs around 20 to 30 minutes. You don’t need numbing cream before this procedure. Thereafter, you could go back to regular activities with some raised red bumps on your skin, which will fade after a while.
What Can I Expect After A Treatment?
You can expect potential side effects such as mild swelling, redness, itching, and tightness. Luckily, these only last for about 1 to 2 days.
Avoid strenuous exercise and makeup for the first day following your treatment. It would help to avoid extreme sunlight for 2 to 3 weeks prior to the procedure. Along with a good skincare routine, including daily sunscreen to improve the results. We will always provide aftercare information post-procedure.
How Many Profhilo Treatments Will I Need?
Originally, you would require two sessions four weeks apart to obtain the maximum benefit. If the skin laxity is fairly severe, you might require a third treatment after a month. Get a single treatment every three months or the full course every six months to keep the results.
