Hyaluronic Acid will shave off years of aging – Here’s why

Anti-aging treatments are explicitly intended to lessen the presence of wrinkles, scarce differences, and drooping skin. These treatments are regularly performed on parts of the body that are generally helpless to the soonest indications of maturing signs like the face, neck, and hands. Contingent upon the degree of the condition, treatment alternatives range from over-the-counter creams and salves to Botox infusions and exceptionally intrusive surgeries like facelifts.

Sun exposure, environmental pollutants, and aging weaken the skin’s surface causing premature aging. Hyaluronic Acid as an antioxidant fights and mitigates the harsh conditions our skin goes through on a daily basis and should be used as part of a thorough skincare regime.

“Profhilo, Hyaluronic Acid – Serves as an adjunct to other treatments to increase treatment results.”

Every treatment accompanies certain dangers, so it is significant for patients to have an intensive consultation with their skin doctors. Here we look at Profhilo, a complimentary treatment performed here at Dr Cindy’s Medical Aesthetics to combat aging, improve skin appearance and brightening, hydration, smooth out wrinkles etc. It serves as an adjunct to other treatments to increase treatment results.

What is in Profhilo?

In every injectable syringe of Profhilo is Hyaluronic acid, a chemical compound occurring naturally in the body. It acts as a humectant and cushions and lubricates joints and other tissue. It is an effective treatment for prescription anti-aging medications and definitely much more effective than over-the-counter options like creams or lotions.

Hard truths do exist in the beauty industry like how Vitamin C brightens pigmentation problems, and as it turns out, Hyaluronic acid is a key molecule, a natural humectant polysaccharide that is found in the human body and as our body ages, we lose more of it. Humectants are a range of skin treatments that are hygroscopic, drawing in water from the surrounding, and are very often found in moisturizers, serums due to their ability to retain moisture and hydrate the skin.

“Hyaluronic Acid is also a common ingredient…found naturally in the body”

Don’t just take our word for it. Besides being the main ingredient in injectables, Hyaluronic Acid is also a common ingredient in lotions, creams, serums, masks, cosmetics like foundation, blusher and lipstick. Although it can be found everywhere, Hyaluronic Acid in our Profhilo treatment uses only the purest and highest concentration that will result in a better visceral result than of the counter creams, lotions or serums.

What we do know about Hyaluronic Acid (HA)

  • Found naturally in the human body
  • Is able to retain moisture as one gram of Hyaluronic Acid can draw up to six liters of water.
  • Combats signs of aging – As we age, our cells start to lack moisture, therefore remaining as one of the major contributors to aging.
  • Increases hydration in your skin resulting in a more plump, fresh look.
  • A multitude of uses – Occurs naturally in our body so is more readily absorbed with lesser irritation.
  • Injectables or Creams – Injectables are much more longer-lasting, more than a year, and have quicker visible results than creams.
  • Profhilo is a stable, biocompatible, BBDE-free, high and low molecular HA (64mg/ 2ml).
  • HA is an extracellular matrix (ECM) molecule that exerts major effects on cellular structure, providing a framework between layers of skin.

Who benefits from Hyaluronic Acid?

Because it occurs naturally in the body, most people react well to the use of Hyaluronic Acid treatments. It is useful for marionette lines (these are folds that are vertical from the mouth to the chin), undereye, lips, cheeks, dorsal hand area. Approved by the US FDA, Profhilo reduces sagging and sunken appearance of the skin and smooths out fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment works very quickly as it starts to be absorbed into the skin. Like all treatments performed here at Dr Cindy’s Medical Aesthetics, Profhilo is not without risks so always seek consultation with an experienced skin doctor.
