Who is this For?

The first of its kind in Singapore aesthetics industry, Profhilo® is a revolutionary bio-remodelling and anti-ageing treatment. It is a tissue modulator that hydrates your skin from within and boosts the production of new collagen and elastin for dewy, full-volume, glowing and healthy-looking skin that lasts for months. To top it off, Profhilo® also stimulates four types of collagen and elastin, while simultaneously increasing adipocytes (fat) stem cells — this means tighter skin and enhanced defence against the signs of ageing.

Profhilo® is the newest entry into Singapore’s aesthetic scene. It is a popular treatment and was only available in Europe for the last few years until it reached Singapore around end 2019. 

 

What is Profhilo?

Profhilo® is currently the product that has the highest concentration of stable, biocompatible, BBDE-free, high and low molecular HA (64mg/ 2ml) which is thermally processed to be released slowly for long-term benefits. It is the first BDDE-free injectable Hyaluronic Acid for hydrating skin and treating skin laxity. Profhilo® is a combination of L-HA and H-HA, which are low weight hyaluronic acid ( for long-lasting hydration ) and high weight hyaluronic acid ( to add volume ) 

 

What does Profhilo® do?

L-HA is time-released and deeply hydrates your skin, H-HA provides a dermal scaffolding in the dermis that holds up and lifts the contours of your face. Profhilo® lasts around 28 days in the skin. Within that time, there is the stimulation of 4 different types of collagen and elastin in multiple skin layers that takes place by slow release of HA.

 

Is Profhilo® the same as my regular filler or skin booster?

Profhilo® is not a dermal filler or skin revitaliser. It is in-between a skin booster and a filler, occupying a brand-new created injectable classification called Bio-remodeling. 

 

How does Profhilo® work?

In the Bio-remodelling process, there is neocollagenesis, where Profhilo® stimulates the collagen receptors in your skin. This is the end goal of aesthetic treatment because as we age, our collagen production dwindles, leading to sags and wrinkles; thus, we need to stimulate our skin to counter these ageing effects.

Areas suitable for Profhilo®

It is not just that face that needs Profhilo®

 How is Profhilo® different from other HA fillers?

A new thermal cross-linking method called the NAHYCO TECHNOLOGY™ modifies the characteristics of the two weights of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which goes on to remodel the skin tissues. This technique is commonly utilised in bio revitalisation treatments. As a result of this technology, there is a longer-lasting time release of the two HA molecules. This double action is perfect for redesigning skin laxity. 

 

What other advantages does Profhilo® treatment have?

The reason why Profhilo® is taking off well worldwide is that the level of pain is very much lower due to the BAP Technique. It only takes five jabs each side of the face for Profhilo to be diffused into the malar and sub malar areas. The chances of bruising and hematoma is much lower, and there is little downtime in this treatment.

How do I incorporate Profhilo® into my aesthetic treatments?

Profhilo is active as a treatment by itself, but also readily complements other aesthetic treatments in the doctor’s office. Profhilo® is an enhancer to energy devices such as Thermage and Ultherapy. There is a minimum or no downtime, and you return to the usual lifestyle almost immediately. No special post-care is required though we recommend Profhilo Haenkenium® cream for natural antioxidant protection and long-term accumulative skin rejuvenation result.

 

*It is also worth mentioning that Profhilo® is a sensitive medical product that requires shipping via pharmaceutical cold chain logistic, please refer to Neoasia to understand more.

Dr Cindy’s Medical Aesthetics Profhilo® supplies are from Singapore Official Distributors for accountability and traceability.

The face is cleansed and anaesthetic cream is applied onto the 5 Bio-Aesthetic Points (BAP) on each side of the face. The BAP represents the injection sites of Profhilo®, carefully selected to keep risks to vessels and nerves to a minimum. Once injected, Profhilo® immediately starts to spread throughout the face.

This procedure is performed by our doctors who are registered with the Singapore Medical Council.

Depending on where Profhilo® is injected (face, neck, inner arms and/or hands), it stimulates the production of elastin, collagen and boosts hydration in the skin, bringing about:

  • Softening and reduction of lines
  • Increased skin tautness
  • Healthier-looking skin
  • More youthful skin

Visible improvements in skin quality and hydration are observed in as early as 4 weeks after treatment and continue to do so in the ensuing months. Effects last between 6 – 12 months.

The initial bumps observed at each injection site rapidly subsides in the next few hours. There is virtually no downtime for this treatment.

For best outcomes, we recommend that you have 2 treatment sessions, 1 month apart.

Profhilo® delivers great results as a treatment on its own or in combination with other aesthetic treatments.
