TIME REVERSING INJECTION
Known as 逆時針 or “Time Reversing Injection”, Profhilo is the latest multi-purpose injectable treatment for skin rejuvenation, hydration and collagen stimulation.
Founded in Italy, Profhilo has been widely used in the world since 2015, but for several years, its use has been limited to Europe. The extremely well-reviewed skin injective treatment has recently received our HSA approval in 2020, and is quickly gaining popularity and has become the choice of aesthetic treatment in Singapore.

Profhilo is suitable for anyone who is looking to improve their skin.
It works especially well for anyone with signs of ageing skin looking to hydrate, tighten, and improve the quality of their skin. It is most effective for mild to moderate cases of skin laxity and fine lines.
*The treatment is also suitable for men’s thicker skin, without the effect of softening their masculine features.
Profhilo is a skin injectable treatment that delivers hyaluronic acid to all the layers of the skin. Although Profhilo’s main ingredient is similar to that of fillers and skinboosters, the hyaluronic acid in Profhilo is significantly different in both concentration and structure.
Firstly, the concentration of hyaluronic acid in Profhilo is about 5 times more than the average skinbooster, making it a skin injectable with the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid in the world.
Secondly, the chemical structure of hyaluronic acid in Profhilo is also distinct from that of other injectable treatments. Most cross linked hyaluronic acids before Profhilo contains a chemical cross-linking agent, called 1,4-butanediol diglycidyl ether (BDDE). Hyaluronic acid in Profhilo, on the other hand, is thermally cross-linked to form a type of molecule called Hybrid Cooperative Complex (HCC).
The result of this is the ability of Profhilo to ‘bio-remodel’ the skin tissue, improving hydration and skin firmness through collagen production. This also allows hyaluronic acids of high and low molecular weight to link together, allowing them to release slowly and dissipate evenly under the skin.
*In addition, it does not contain additives such as BDDE or Lycodine. With this unique production process, the injected substance spreads extensively and minimises the risk of lumpiness.
The key advantage of the Profhilo treatment, as compared to other skin injection treatments, is the number of injection sites required.
With other skin injection treatments, multiple injections are required to distribute the product around the whole face.
However, with Profhilo, due to its unique structure and spreadability under the skin, the number of injection sites is only five on each side of the face and neck using The Bio Aesthetic Point (BAP) technique.
BIO AESTHETIC POINT
The Bio Aesthetic Points (BAP) technique are five injections points on the face chosen due to their safety with the absence of large, critical vessels and nerve branches. This means that risks are minimized and favorable effects would be minimized
