Profhilo® is a unique skin remodelling treatment designed to rejuvenate your skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production, giving you a refreshed and luminous glowing complexion.
The treatment is a leading Hyaluronic Acid Injection that is non-invasive, achieving rejuvenating results with minimal downtime. It is neither a filler nor a skin booster, but this injectable acts to deliver more than what a filler and skin booster can.
The Profhilo® bio-remodelling treatment offers a wide range of benefits in a single treatment. By providing 5 times the amount of hyaluronic acid as traditional skin boosters, it hydrates and tightens sagging skin, reducing skin laxity. The slow release of hyaluronic acid stimulates 4 types of naturally skin-boosting collagen and elastin. This restores the overall integrity of the skin for a lifting effect and significantly improves the appearance of fine lines of wrinkles.

Profhilo® delivers a two-pronged approach with 2 types of hyaluronic acid in one treatment.
It contains both low molecular weight hyaluronic acid (L-HA) and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid (H-HA) formulated with unique patented NAHYCO®️ Hybrid Technology.
The low molecular weight hyaluronic acid (L-HA) as a hybrid complex is released slowly and hydrates your skin, providing a Hydro effect. The high molecular weight hyaluronic acid (H-HA) provides bio-remodelling of skin tissue in the epidermis, dermis and fat tissue layer of the skin, giving the Lift effect.
This hybrid of hyaluronic acid is thermally and not chemically cross-linked which spreads out and is slowly released over 28 days. During this period, the slow release of hyaluronic acid kickstarts the stimulation of 4 different types of collagen and elastin ( type I, III, IV and VII collagen in keratinocytes). This results in lifting and tightening effects, improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without adding volume or changing the shape of your face.
The Profhilo® does not contain additives such as BBDE or Lycodine. As such, there is less risk of lumps as it is highly spreadable, promoting homogeneous scattering and allows absorption in skin tissue, for relatively safer results.
First, your doctor will mark out the bio aesthetic points (BAP) on your skin where she will administer the injection. BAP is a unique injection technique used for optimal diffusion of the injected product. Only 5 injection points are required per side of the face.
Then, topical numbing cream will be applied to your skin. Once the numbing cream is effective, the doctor will carefully inject Profhilo® into the selected bio aesthetic points on your skin.
Due to the minimal injection points, the side effects of the minimally invasive procedure are greatly minimised as there is a lower risk to your blood vessels and nerves.
The Profhilo® bio-remodelling treatment is suitable for anyone over 30 who wants to :
Have natural-looking results for healthier and younger-looking skin
How many Profhilo® treatment sessions are required?
Typically, a total of 2 sessions is needed. These sessions will be spaced 1 month apart. Each session will last 30 to 45 minutes including numbing time.
The Profhilo® treatment requires minimal downtime. Compared to traditional skin booster treatments, Profhilo® treatment requires a reduced number of injection points. This highly reduces the pain and risk of bruising, which is beneficial for busy individuals who desire treatment with minimal recovery time.
There may be mild discomfort in the areas injected. Bruising at the injection site is possible but rare, and will resolve itself with the help of cold compressions over a short duration of time after treatment.
Typically, the results of one Profhilo® treatment cycle can last up to 12 months. We recommend that you come back for maintenance treatment in 6 months to maximize the results of the treatment.
Profhilo® can be done to complement other treatments that improve skin texture, hydration and provide lifting or tightening. Our doctors can recommend which treatments are best suitable for you depending on your skin condition.
