Are fine lines and wrinkles stressing you out? Unfortunately, ageing is inevitable and with such visible signs looming, there is a greater need than ever for long-term solutions. With the ever-evolving landscape of cosmetic injections, never-before-seen treatments have emerged, including Profhilo. Touted as ‘The Injectable Skincare’ treatment, it was heralded for having the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market. If you’re considering getting Profhilo, we have gathered everything you need to know about this treatment.

What Is Profhilo?

Touted as ‘The Injectable Skincare’, Profhilo is a form of bio-remodeling injectable. This anti-ageing treatment comprises the highest concentrations of 100% pure hyaluronic acid on the market. Profhilo is specifically designed to morph the skin by increasing hydration and remodelling ageing and sagging tissue.

Contrary to the popular misconception, Profhilo is not categorised as a filler or skinbooster. In contrast to skinboosters, which require numerous microinjections in a single localised area, Profhilo requires only five distinct injection points. Conversely, Profhilo works differently than filler, which boosts the volume. Instead, it delivers a mega dose of hydration to restore the skin’s radiance and vitality.

The treatment works beyond just addressing the concerns about the facial features. It can also be performed on the neck, décolletage, hands, arms, knees and abdomen to treat skin laxity. Profhilo treatment is suitable for people of all ages, including women and men.

In fact, it is also an ideal treatment for those who are in their twenties and thirties who wish to delay the visibles signs of ageing. However, Profhilo is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women, as well as people with compromised immune systems, existing allergies to product ingredients and infected skin issues.

The Benefits of Profhilo

Developed through NAHYCO technology, Profhilo is designed to deliver long-lasting positive effects on the skin. Its technology works by stimulating the skin cell receptors, initiating the firmness. With ageing, our collagen production will start to deplete. Thus, to tackle such issues, Profhilo will boost collagen and elastin synthesis through the continuous release of hyaluronic acid.

Apart from creating a lifting effect, the treatment is also known for accelerating the tissue repair process, which makes it ideal for depressed acne scars and minor wound marks.  Profhilo treatment is also hailed for its ability to boost the skin health which makes it receptive to skincare products and other procedures in the clinic. 

Its other noteworthy benefits include: 

  • Accelerates skin hydration level 
  • Increases skin elasticity
  • Boost skin radiance
  • Smoothes the skin’s texture

Potential Side Effects of Profhilo

Similar to other non-invasive treatments, there’s a risk of developing minor side effects, including bruising or swelling in the injected area. However, do note that these aren’t common with Profhilo. If such symptoms occur, they will usually subside within 24 hours. Rest assured, as the medical doctors at Astute Medical Clinic are experienced in administering the Profhilo treatment with minimal downtime and discomfort. So, you are certainly in good hands.

How to Prepare for a Profhilo Treatment

Prior to the Profhilo treatment, the doctors at Astute Medical Clinic will conduct an initial consultation to thoroughly examine the client’s medical history. This consultation includes an extensive overview of the benefits, side effects, before and aftercare tips.

In terms of preparation, they will advise you to discontinue taking aspirin or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs a few days before the treatment, with the exception that they are for chronic medical conditions. Apart from that, the doctors will also recommend that you abstain from consuming alcohol for 24 hours before the Profhilo treatment.

How Many Profhilo Treatment Do You Required?

Depending on your condition, the doctors at Astute Medical Clinic will recommend two sessions of Profhilo treatment with a one month interval for optimal outcomes. The result lasts six months if two treatments are administered one month apart. Thereby, touch-up treatment can be performed every six to nine months for maintenance purposes.

The Results

As Profhilo works by stimulating the collagen and elastin synthesis on the skin, you can expect a glow-from-within complexion with a tighter and plumper appearance. Furthermore, this anti-aging treatment is known for its ability to provide a variety of benefits, including skin revitalization and deep hydration.

Typically, Profhilo will smooth and hydrate the skin instantly, starting from the first session. However, the results are more noticeable after the second session, as Profhilo needs time to take effect. This is attributed to the fact that the process of naturally stimulating collagen synthesis to boost the plumpness, firmness and elasticity takes time.

With follow-up treatments, between two and three sessions, the Profhilo can be retained in the skin for prolonged periods of time for long lasting results. It will remain viable for six months after the treatment. As previously stated, a follow-up treatment is required to extend such effects. The experienced doctors at Astute Medical Clinic will carefully administer the suitable dose of Profhilo and curate a personalised treatment plan for you to yield optimal outcomes.
