Medical aesthetic ‘tweakments’ have become increasingly popular in the last few years. From bo and fillers to lasers and skin injectables, people have come to accept and embrace treatments that subtly enhance features and rejuvenate faces and complexion.
Amongst the latest injectable skincare products, Profhilo is often touted as one of the latest up-and-coming anti-ageing ‘tweakment’ of the hyaluronic acid skin injectables in the market – but how much of this is true? In a nutshell, Profhilo is a hundred percent hyaluronic acid based treatment. It is also a chemical stabiliser-free treatment designed to treat loose and sagging skin typically associated with old age. Quite unlike existing hyaluronic acid skin injectables like fillers and skin boosters in the market, Profhilo exerts its properties via a new process of bio-remodelling of the collagen and elastin structures in the skin. This not only helps with the hydration of the skin, but also provides effects of skin rejuvenation and skin tightening.
The highly-raved injectable skincare is made of 100% pure hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a natural component of human skin. HA can bind water up to 1,000 its own weight, which is why HA skin treatments are often touted as ‘injectable moisture’. However, not all HAs are made equal. Because of the unique thermal crosslinking process used to link the short and long-chain hyaluronic acid in Injectable Skincare instead of binding agents such as BDDE, as well as its high HA concentration, injectable skincare stimulates natural collagen and elastin production in the skin, which helps it increase the elasticity of the skin while reducing wrinkles and sagging as well as increase skin hydration.
Injectable skincare also has the advantage of having almost no downtime. Due to its unique spreadability when injected into the skin, it requires small injections in only 10 selected bio-aesthetic points which minimizes risk to blood vessels and nerves. The product then diffuses throughout the layers of the skin and exerts its effects. Due to the unique injection technique, most people can go back to their daily activity immediately after injection with minimal downtime.
The result? A dewy, plump complexion with a firmer and better-lifted contour, enhanced hydration and better tissue and scarring repair. Typically, 2 treatments are done 1 month apart and effects can be observed after the second treatment. They gradually improve over time and can last between 6 and 9 months. For best results, it is recommended to be administered twice a year.
For those who are looking for a more striking and significant improvement, injectable skincare can be combined with other treatments such as skin boosters, Rejuran healer and even lasers for better results. Injectable skincare is best for anyone over 30 who wants to improve tired, dull and ageing skin.
