Profilo is an innovative treatment for the improvement of ageing skin, delivering significant improvement in skin firmness, tightness and quality. It is an injectable skin bio-remodelling treatment (not a filler) with one of the highest concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid in the market, that stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, and helps to significantly improve tissue quality.
This soft and self-distributing injectable provides an overall skin rejuvenation effect that is subtle, yet remarkable. This is due to its unique, one-of-a-kind, manufacturing process which utilizes thermal cross-linking of both low and high molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid (HA).
Low molecular weight HA works by working as a water reservoir and moisturizes the skin intensely. High molecular weight HA provides a stable HA structure in the skin dermis to give a volumetric lift, which is subtle but yet remarkable.
Profhilo complements other aesthetic treatments such as lasers, by significantly improving skin quality.
Profhilo is used to treat skin laxity, improve skin quality, increase skin hydration and increase volumetric lifting of the areas targeted.
Common areas treated include:
The full treatment consists of 2 sessions, 4 weeks apart.
The first session stimulates hydration and provides a volumising effect.
The second session serves to boost the effects. Results of Profhilo are usually more prominent after the 2nd session.
A third session can be repeated 6-12 months later depending on individuals.
During consultation and prior to treatment, Dr. Eileen will give a full explanation of the procedure, clinical and aesthetic benefits, risks, aftercare and consent process for you to make an informed decision.
After cleaning your skin, a layer of numbing cream will be applied to the lower treatment area(s) for 30-40minutes.
Thereafter, a total of 10 subcutaneous injections of Profhilo® using the Bio Aesthetic Points (BAP) injection technique. The five key points on the face includes the area next to the ears, the nasolabial fold (laughter lines near the mouth), chin, near the angle of the jaw and top of the cheeks.
After injection, Profhilo disperses quickly beneath the skin to improve hydration without any need for a massage or risk of leaving lumps or nodules.
Profhilo® usually works to smooth and hydrate the skin from the very first treatment but results are more prominent after the second treatment as Profhilo® takes time to work.
By having 2-3 treatment sessions, it allows the Profhilo® to remain in the skin for a longer time, resulting in a longer-lasting response.
A follow up appointment will ensure that there are no complications.
There are no long-term side effects, as Profhilo is broken down by the body completely. It is also bio-compatible, and doesn’t cause any inflammatory reaction.
With all non-surgical aesthetic treatments, there is a minimum risk of side effects such as minor bruising or swelling at the injection sites. However, these usually subside quickly when they do within 24-48 hours.
