1. What is Profhilo?
Profhilo (also Known as 逆時針) is neither a filler nor a skin booster, I call it the biostimulating skin filler. It is a skin remodelling injectable. Profhilo is a powerful bio-stimulator that is able to remodel skin tissue at multi-layer of the skin tissue. It contains:
- 2 types of hyaluronic acid: L-HA and H-HA.
- L-HA hybrid complex is released slowly and hydrates your skin, providing the Hydro effect.
- H-HA provides a stable HA architecture in the dermis that allows volumetric replacement, giving the Lift effect.
2. How Does Profhilo Work?
Profhilo treatment is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that uses injectable hyaluronic acid to hydrate and firm the skin.
The treatment involves a series of small injections of the hyaluronic acid into the skin, which then works to hydrate and stimulate collagen production.
This helps to improve the overall appearance of the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and giving the skin a more youthful and radiant appearance.
The treatment typically takes about 30 minutes to complete and results can be seen within 2-3 weeks after the treatment.
3. Why is Profhilo treatment so popular now?
4. What are the differences between Profhilo, Rejuran, and Skinbooster?
Even though all three treatments are to improve skin quality, the main function and treatment protocols are different.
|Collagen + Elastin stimulation||Collagen stimulation||Hydration|
|Skin Bio-remodelling + Hydration||Skin Repair||Skin Glow|
|5 injection points per cheek||Multiple micro injections needed||Multiple micro injections needed|
|Minimal downtime||2-3 days of downtime||2-3 days of downtime|
|Discomfort +||Discomfort + +||Discomfort + + +|
|2 sessions, one month apart||3 sessions, one month apart||3 sessions, one month apart|
|Best for anti-aging, dry skin and overall skin enhancement||Best for acne skin requiring repair||Best for dry skin|
In summary, Profhilo offers benefits that overlap both Rejuran Healer and Skinboosters. Coupled with minimal discomfort and downtime, it is easy to see why Profhilo is an excellent all in one treatment.
5. How many sessions are needed for Profhilo treatment?
It depends on the condition of your skin laxity.
For best results, the first 2 to 3 sessions of the treatment should be administered once a month for 2 to 3 months.
Subsequently, for maintenance, each session should be repeated every 6-9 months.
