4 Benefits Of Profhilo,
An Anti-Ageing “Injectable” Treatment That Hydrates Your Skin From The Inside Out
Profhilo at Zoe Medical
It’s a known fact that our skin loses its elasticity and suppleness over time. As the years pile on, we produce less collagen, and our skin no longer bounces back to its taut, firm state. But while sagging skin and fine lines are part of the natural ageing process, we can now figuratively turn around time with the help of Profhilo.
As an anti-ageing “injectable” treatment, Profhilo helps curb any early signs of ageing. From its tightening and firming effect to hydrating your skin inside out, it’s one way to keep your skin looking radiant and youthful. Over at Zoe Medical, it’s a popular treatment favoured by many of our patients due to its multiple benefits and popularity.
Those wanting to learn more about Profhilo and its benefits, here’s what you can expect when undergoing the treatment:
What is Profhilo?
In a nutshell, Profhilo is an injectable skincare that helps with early signs of ageing. It uses hyaluronic acid that releases slowly into your skin, which stimulates collagen and elastin production. Remarkably, this revives 4 different types of collagen in the 3 main layers of your skin.
This process, known as bio-remodelling, works from the inside out by remodelling multi-layer skin tissue. You can expect your skin to improve in terms of texture, hydration levels, and tissue quality.
What are the benefits of Profhilo?
Since Profhilo improves skin elasticity by effectively hydrating your skin from within, it helps with a wide range of skin conditions and ageing issues. Those concerned about dehydrated and dry skin will especially benefit from this treatment, as will those who have just started to notice fine lines and wrinkles forming. Profhilo can also help with mild sagging around the neck, jowls, and cheekbones.
Here are the 4 main benefits of Profhilo, in solving skin conditions:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Rather than just “filling in” the wrinkles, Profhilo cures wrinkles through maximum hydration. By stimulating collagen production, the treatment plumps up your skin which naturally helps to smoothen out wrinkles and fine lines.
Acne scars and minor wound marks
Through bio-remodelling, Profhilo kickstarts the tissue repair process. This is especially beneficial for depressed acne scars and any other minor wounds.
Sagging and skin laxity
Besides stimulating collagen, Profhilo also triggers the production of elastin. Since our skin’s elastic fibers start to degenerate over time, leading to loose and saggy skin, the increase of elastin is vital in regaining firm and supple skin.
Tired and dull skin is often a result of dehydration—Profhilo will restore hydration and in turn, brighten your skin. Also, since Profhilo can spread under the skin’s surface, your complexion will be evened out for a radiant glow.
How does Profhilo work?
No doubt that Profhilo has numerous benefits but it comes down to this: how exactly does this injectable treatment work? As you know, Profhilo is made up of hyaluronic acid. In treating the face, there are just 5 injection points required on each side of the face. Each injection slowly releases hyaluronic acid, which is then absorbed by the different layers of skin.
In turn, this triggers skin rejuvenation. Since hyaluronic acid helps to draw and hold water, Profhilo is often considered a revolutionary hydrator. The treatment doesn’t merely plump up your skin and fill out your wrinkles but instead is key to your body’s production of collagen and elastin for improved skin quality.
You can expect to see firmer and more radiant skin within 3 to 5 days, but it will take roughly 2 sessions with a one-month interval to see more tangible results, such as skin tightening and smoothing of fine lines.
Who is Profhilo suitable for?
As our collagen and elastin levels decreased from the age of 30 onwards, we started noticing
signs of ageing. Anyone who wants better skin hydration, an anti-ageing effect and to reverse mild signs of ageing can consider Profhilo, especially those facing fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, and a dull complexion.
While Profhilo is most commonly associated with the treatment of the face, it is also a viable option used to treat sagging and dehydrated skin in the areas of your neck, hands, arms, knees, and tummy.
Also, being an injectable skincare, you can reap all the benefits from just several sessions. The recommended treatment is an initial 2 sessions that are a month apart, with a maintenance session every 6 months. As a non-invasive treatment, it is FDA approved with minimal downtime, making it an ideal choice for those unwilling to turn to surgical measures with no need to undergo the risk involved with surgery.
Profhilo vs. Rejuran/Skinboosters vs. Fillers
The main similarity between Profhilo and Skinboosters and Rejuran is that these are all considered injectable moisturisers. While both Profhilo and Skinboosters use hyaluronic acid to boost collagen, Rejuran consists of Polynucleotides to reactivate the skin’s healing process.
But dermal fillers are also another popular choice for those looking for anti-ageing treatments. How do they differ? In essence, fillers add volume and help to sculpt the face, whereas these injectable treatments treat from within.
For a more holistic treatment, depending on your needs, you can also combine Profhilo with either or both Rejuran and Skinboosters. Let’s take a look at the main differences between these 3 treatments:
Rejuran is mainly used to treat skin conditions such as acne scars, enlarged pores, and ageing signs by activating stem cells to regenerate and heal damaged skin. While Profhilo is known to increase collagen and elastin production and deep skin hydration, Rejuran stimulates tissue repair. Another key difference is the treatment process, with Rejuran requiring more injection points than Profhilo’s 5 points on each side of the face. Rejuran is suitable for those in their 20s and above.
Skinboosters works effectively on your skin’s surface layer and is best for people who want hydration and glowy skin. Think of it as a beauty app filter: it smoothens, brightens, and softens your skin. Similar to Profhilo, it stimulates collagen and also has few risks. Results are relatively long-lasting, but Skinboosters also has a relatively longer downtime and requires more injection points when compared to Profhilo.
Skinboosters is suitable for those in their mid-20s and above.
