The truth about Profhilo:
Whoever that said time travel is only made possible with a time machine have not met Profhilo.
Profhilo, is one way to travel back in time to have skin our younger selves had. Allow us to explain how Profhilo can do just that. Our body produces Hyaluronic Acid (HA) naturally and it is found in our skin, joints and other connective tissues. Due to aging, our skin will start to age and HA production depletes over time, contributing to lackluster, dry and wrinkly complexion.
The main role of Profhilo is to retain moisture and support collagen production. Profhilo is the first BDDE-free stabilized injectable hyaluronic acid based product for improving skin elasticity, delivering deep skin hydration and treating skin laxity. Delivered through 5 injection points on each side of the face, Profhilo treatment has little to no pain and minimal downtime.
The Profhilo Experience:
Newly launched in Singapore during late 2019, Profhilo is neither a filler not a botulinum toxin but a Hyaluronic Acid (HA) for bio-remodeling. Launched in Italy back in February 2015 by IBSA, Profhilo is CE-marked and available in over 56 countries with over 500,000 treatments performed as of December 2018. More than 1 million treatments were performed by December 2019.
Profhilo is recommended for cheeks, forhead, neck, inner arm laxity and wrinkles on the stomach post-pregnancy. The recommended number of sessions is thrice, at monthly intervals. Results can last about 6 months.
Over a period of 3 – 4 weeks, Profhilo kick starts the production of elastin, remodeling the skin tissue and giving it a plumper and tighter look radiating a natural glow. Profhilo can be used as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other fillers to replace volume loss, hydrate and tighten skin. Profhilo can also complement laser treatments or botulinum toxins to get an even better result.
What is the difference between Profhilo and other Hyaluronic Acid?
Profhilo contains one of the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid (64mg/2ml) available in the market. As the HA is higher, it can absorb water better and the skin will be more hydrated. Even though Profhilo is a HA, it is not a filler. It cannot replace volume loss or augment various parts of the face such as the cheek or tear trough which started to lose collagen.
Time travel – a popular theory in the realm of science fiction for decades, have yet to be confirmed by scientists. The theory sounds lofty and interesting but, what would be great news is when we figure out how we can look like our younger selves.
While we may not have a time machine to travel back in time, we can always count on Profhilo to bring us back in time. Back to a time where our skin was soft and supple and age does not catch up with us. One thing to note – injectables are an advanced technique that is best performed by an experienced doctor.
