HOW IS PROFHILO® DIFFERENT FROM OTHER SKIN BOOSTERS?
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 is Profhilo®'s ability 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 Lidocaine. With this unique production process, the injected substance spreads extensively and minimises the risk of lumpiness.
HOW DOES PROFHILO® WORK?
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 favorable effects would be maximized.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT PROFHILO®
1. WHERE CAN PROFHILO® BE INJECTED?
Profhilo® is typically injected into the face, in the cheek areas, lower face, and also in the neck. Our aesthetic doctors at VIDASKIN Singapore will first assess your skin condition to determine which areas are best suited for the Profhilo® anti-ageing skin care treatment. Contact us to learn more.
2. HOW SOON CAN I SEE PROFHILO® TREATMENT RESULTS?
The before and after effects of Profhilo® are noticeable after several weeks. While Profhilo® is also a HA filler, it differs from conventional HA fillers in that it addresses the root of ageing – the lowered production of collagen. Profhilo® stimulates collagen production, so it can take weeks before you start seeing firmer skin, as opposed to fillers, which are designed to give an instant lift.
