TIME REVERSING INJECTION

Profhilo® is nown as’次世代型アンチエイジング治療/Next-generation Anti-aging Treatment’ in Japanese or ‘逆時針/Time Reversing Injection’ in Chinese, Profhilo® is the latest multi-purpose injectable treatment for skin rejuvenation, hydration and collagen stimulation.

What is Profhilo®?

Profhilo® is a patented technology of bio-remodelling injectable. It is the first “injectable skincare” that addresses skin laxity and signs of aging through the bio-stimulation of collagen, elastin and adipocytes (fats) that are lost through skin aging.

Profhilo® is also the only HA injectable that is able to improve skin laxity through the stimulation of elastin. With one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market (64mg / 2ml) it intensely boosts skin hydration levels.

This is made possible with NAHYCO® Technology where 32mg of high molecular HA (H-HA) and 32mg of low molecular HA (L-HA), bind together through thermal cross-linking to form the only Hybrid Cooperative Complex Hyaluronic (HCC) Acid. In addition to its skin hydrating properties, HCC Acid also stimulates collagen and elastin to remodel sagging tissue for firmer, younger looking skin.

How does Profhilo work?

Profhilo has one of the highest concentrations of Hyaluronic acid (HA) on the market – 64mg in 2mls. 

Profhilo is unique because it is a hybrid that contains 2 types of non-cross-linked HA:

  • Low molecular weight HA (L-HA) retains moisture and hydrates skin.
  • High molecular weight HA (H-HA) lifts the skin by providing a stable hyaluronic acid structure in the skin dermis in order to give a volumetric lift.

The hybrid HA combination allows for a slow release of active ingredients to deliver sustained and long-lasting hydration + bio-remodeling.

In addition, Profhilo is free of additives such as BDDE and Lycodine. These additives can cause lumps to form in other types of skin boosters/fillers treatments.

 

Common Areas for Profhilo® Treatment

Profhilo can also be injected in other areas such as the forehead, neck, décolletage, chest, hands, knees, abdomen, and depressed acne scars. It is important to choose a practitioner who is proficient in the treatment of other areas of the body.

Forehead

Profhilo is great for treating wrinkles over the forehead without causing the “frozen” expression that comes with other muscle relaxers. It helps with improving the skin quality of the forehead, correcting the fine lines very well.

Neck

The neck is often the area that is neglected or the area that comes after you feel that you have enough done on the face. Profhilo has yielded amazing results with neck treatment and injection over this area is often much less painful. It treats creepy neck and wrinkles very well and makes the skin more elastic over time.

Back of the hand

Profhilo does not increase the volume very well over this area, but it provides a more youthful appearance of the skin after the Bio-remodelling effect kicks in.

Effects of Profhilo

In 1-3 days:

Once injected, Profhilo® replenishes the hyaluronic acid in the skin. Patient’s skin hydration level will be improved and fine lines will be plumped up.

Gradually in a few weeks:

Clinical studies shown significant improvements in skin elasticity, hydration, wrinkles, skin texture and skin tightening*. Most patients often experience firmer, bouncier and more youthful looking skin. Profhilo® also helps with tissue repair and improves the appearances of scars.

Full results:

The full effects of Profhilo® take up to 12 weeks after the first treatment, as the bio-remodelling process takes time to complete. Another dose of Profhilo® is recommended 4 weeks after the first treatment for optimal results.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

It depends on individuals but, for best results, the first 2-3 sessions of Profhilo® should be administered once a month for 2-3 months. Subsequently each session should be repeated every 6-8 months to maintain.

Profhilo® is most commonly used on the cheek area and lower face, but can also be used to improve the appearance of skin on the following areas:

  • Forehead and Eye area
  • Cheeks, Lower face, Chin
  • Neck and Décolletage
  • Arms, Hands
  • Knees
  • Chest and Abdomen
  • Depressed acne scars

Administering Profhilo®: Profhilo® uses the unique Bio Aesthetic Points (BAP) technique, with just 5 injections per side.

The Hyaluronic Acid diffuses across the widest sections of the face through subdermal patterns, stimulating the production of elastin, collagen and hydration in the skin. With minimal injection points, this increases patient’s compliance, reduction in pain and lowers the possibility of bruising or hematoma. Ideally, the first 2 to 3 sessions of Profhilo® should be administered 1 month apart, for maintenance and optimal results, each session should be repeated every 6-9 months.

Profhilo® is injected under the skin using very small needles.

The protocol for Profhilo® on the face requires it to be injected on 5 points each side of the face. The process is made more comfortable with numbing cream applied on prior to the procedure.

Slight soreness around the injection points can sometimes be felt for the first 1-2 days.

There is minimal downtime, and most people will continue with normal activities. As with most injectable treatments, bruising and some soreness can sometimes occur.

A small bump over the injection site can be observed for a few hours after the procedure. There is no need to massage this bump as it spreads under the skin by itself.

For patients with thinner skin doing neck treatments, the bumps may stay for a longer period of time, but can be gently massaged in to reduce the downtime.

Strenuous exercise and alcohol should be avoided for 24hours after the treatment.

There are no long-term side effects, as Profhilo® is broken down by the body completely. It is also bio-compatible, and doesn’t cause any inflammatory reaction.

Although there are minimal side effects when injecting on the face, except for occasional bruising, it is important to make sure that you find an experienced Profhilo® doctor as there are vital blood vessels to avoid when injecting in areas such as the neck.

The injection technique is important in achieving optimum results. It should not be injected too deeply into the skin, as this will not produce satisfactory results.

There are only few clinics in Singapore that have been chosen to launch Profhilo® at the moment. TM Medical Aesthetics, is one of these clinics appointed.

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

For lifting: Profhilo® can be safely combined with energy-based devices such as Ulthera and Thermage for more permanent skin tightening that lasts up to a year, or Exilis Elite for instant lift.

For loss of volume: Profhilo® can be combined with fillers to plump up sunken areas for a more youthful look. The two treatments work in synergy to improve the appearance – fillers will replace lost volume, while Profhilo® finishes the job by stimulating collagen and elastin and restoring hydration.

For improvement in scars and discolouration: Profhilo® also works well with Laser Peels and Pico Laser for the improvements of scars and skin discolouration.
