The way in which Nucleofill™ differs from familiar injectables such as Profhilo™ is that it’s a bio-stimulant gel, rather than hyaluronic acid. Yet it still does the all-important job of stimulating fibroblasts – the major cells responsible for the production of collagen. Nucleofill™ directly stimulates specific receptors on the fibroblast cells and produces the healthy collagen that we have in our youth. While both treatments are highly effective, they each have their own ideal candidate. Nucleofill™ is fantastic for the more mature age group as it regenerates sagging and dehydrated skin and thickens the tissues. It also lasts longer than Profhilo – up to a year after two treatments.
Ultimately the decision depends on your concerns and your treatment goals. The effect of Profhilo™ is largely glow-giving. Richly hydrating the skin changes its light-reflecting properties, giving your complexion a radiance that no highlighter can match. Nucleofill™ is used for patients who are concerned with fine lines and wrinkles and loss of elasticity on the face or neck. Nucleofill™ treats various indications, making it a good option for under-eye crepiness, wrinkles, and hollows. We can combine these treatments if desired, or use just the one.
