Profhilo is a multi-purpose skin injectable treatment for hydration, collagen stimulation, and skin renewal. Profhilo includes both low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid molecules, delivering five times more hyaluronic acid than Skinboosters (H-HA and L-HA). This hybrid hyaluronic acid complex has improved skin collagen and elastin synthesis, cell viability for healthier skin, and stem cell recruitment for increased regeneration.
What is Profhilo?
Profhilo is a patented injectable bio-remodeling technology. It’s the first “injectable skincare” to address skin laxity and noticeable signs of aging by bio-stimulating adipocytes (fat stem cells), collagen, and elastin, all of which are lost gradually as you age.
Profhilo is also the only HA injectable that stimulates elastin synthesis, which may help with sagging skin and other skin issues. It has one of the highest HA concentrations in the market (64mg / 2ml), which significantly improves skin hydration levels.
How Does Profhilo Work?
Profhilo works by remodeling the skin and improving the skin’s overall condition. Profhilo achieves effective skin bio-remodeling in three ways:
- Profhilo’s high concentration of HA encourages fibroblast cells to produce more natural elastin and collagen in the dermis.
- Profhilo’s HA gives a direct structural foundation to the skin through a volumetric action, reducing skin sagging and wrinkling.
- Profhilo’s HA component functions as a moisture reservoir, allowing the skin to retain its suppleness.
This is achieved by a one-of-a-kind manufacturing technique that produces the Hybrid Cooperative Complex (HCC), a unique hyaluronic acid molecule. Profhilo works by penetrating the skin’s surface, where it distributes and absorbs moisture from inside. This substance then moisturizes the skin from within, which is great for fighting skin aging! Profhilo also increases collagen and elastin synthesis, resulting in softer, more even-toned skin.
A month following the first round of Profhilo, most aesthetic doctors recommend having a second treatment. After around two months, you can expect to notice the full benefits. The treatment may be repeated every six months to maintain your youthful and radiant skin, thanks to Profhilo!
What Is Profhilo Treatment In Malaysia Like?
Our aesthetic doctors here at Beverly Wilshire Clinic will mark the five injection spots on each side of the face and administer numbing cream before beginning therapy. 0.2ml of Profhilo is precisely injected into the specified injection locations.
The steady discharge of hyaluronic acid promotes four distinct forms of collagen and elastin throughout this period. Hyaluronic acid with low molecular weight has a moisturizing effect, whereas hyaluronic acid with a high molecular weight has a lifting effect. Both stimulate elastin and collagen at various depths of the skin when used together.
What Are The Profhilo Side Effects?
Profhilo has no downtime, which is fantastic; however, you might expect some lumpiness and redness in the treated regions. Within a 24-hour period, this will normally diminish.
What Sets Profhilo Apart From Dermal Fillers And Skin Boosters?
Skin boosters work by replenishing the hyaluronic acid lost in the skin as we age, restoring moisture and suppleness. Fillers, on the other hand, are used to restore lost volume or to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Profhilo, like Skinbooster, is a hyaluronic acid-based treatment that hydrates the skin. The HCC, on the other hand, goes a step further by increasing elastin and collagen production in the skin, resulting in skin tightness and rejuvenation. It acts to rejuvenate aging skin tissue without adding volume to the superficial fat compartments, dermis, and epidermis. It’s a regenerative anti-aging procedure that uses bio remodeling to reverse the effects of aging.
What Results Can I Expect from Profhilo?
Profhilo improves skin hydration and wrinkles practically immediately after injection. Skin firming and better elasticity are also seen over time. After eight weeks, skin texture and wrinkles are usually noticeably improved. When the full benefits of the procedure are visible, which may take up to 12 weeks, patients should expect to see radiant, glossy, and plumper-looking skin.
However, Profhilo does not lift sagging skin. It isn’t intended to be used in place of other treatments like thread lifts, fillers, or surgical facelifts.
Who Should Go for Profhilo, and Am I Suitable?
If you’ve been thinking about getting this treatment done, these are some of the skin types which will benefit the most:
- Individuals in their forties and fifties
- With mild to moderate skin laxity
- With poor skin quality
- Wrinkles and fine lines are noticeable indications of aging.
- Skin types that are dry or sensitive
- Patients who want a more natural-looking skincare boost
Profhilo treatment in Malaysia is good for all types of skin in general; however, you should visit your aesthetic doctor beforehand for a consultation.
Profhilo could be the ideal treatment for you if you are looking for a minimally-invasive aesthetic procedure that will improve your appearance while still looking natural! You can have bright, radiant, and youthful-looking skin with less downtime!
The Price of Profhilo
Profhilo cost between RM1,666 to RM2,500 which is based on the number of injection sites required.
How many Profhilo treatment sessions do I need?
While the moisturizing benefits of Profhilo may be noticeable after only one treatment, most patients will benefit from two treatments spaced four weeks apart. Patients with somewhat sagging skin may need an additional one or two treatments to see a lifting effect. After that, two maintenance treatments every six months are suggested.
How long does Profhilo last?
Profhilo’s bio-remodeling and collagen-building effects might take three to six months to show. The effects usually last approximately a year.
Are there any side effects of Profhilo? What is the downtime?
Profhilo is safe, with usually no negative effects observed. Because hyaluronic acid is found naturally in our bodies, the chance of an allergic response is almost zero to none. The risk of bruising is greatly minimized with the 5 Bio Aesthetic Point approach, so you can expect little to no downtime.
Can I combine Profhilo with other treatments?
Yes, Profhilo may be used in conjunction with other anti-aging procedures. Profhilo, for example, may be used in conjunction with Botox to address wrinkles and sagging skin.
Is the Profhilo treatment painful?
It’s normal to have some slight discomfort throughout the injection process. This should be minor because the needles are tiny (29g).
I have done other injectables before. Can I still do Profhilo?
Before you start, you should talk about any past injection treatments with your aesthetic doctor. Profhilo, being a non-BDDE cross-linked substance, is unlikely to react with other HA skin boosters. However, it is still important to consult with your aesthetic doctor.
