When you hear of injectables, there’s no doubt that the first ones that come to mind are Botox and fillers. These two have ruled the dynasty of beauty injections for so long, and it’s all for good reasons. They are highly effective against ageing and sagging, so they deserve to reign supreme.
However, there’s a newbie making rounds in the kingdom: Profhilo. Dubbed the ultimate glow giver, Profhilo is an excellent starter injectable with many skin benefits. It plumps, rejuvenates, and moisturises your skin like no other.
But what exactly is Profhilo, how does it work, and why is it worth trying this 2023? Find out below.
What is Profhilo?
As far as skin boosters go, nothing else does it like Profhilo. Profhilo is an injectable skin remodelling treatment that delivers high concentrations of our favourite moisturising ingredient: hyaluronic acid. This ingredient is a naturally occurring compound in our body; however, we produce less of it as we age. Hyaluronic acid is also an essential component that improves skin elasticity, making it look plumper, smoother, and firmer.
Good news: Profhilo has one of the highest concentrations of pure hyaluronic acid in the market, delivering 62mg per 2ml syringe. It targets multiple layers of the skin to restore firmness and elasticity at levels that topical skincare products can’t reach!
How does Profhilo work?
Profhilo works by penetrating beneath the skin’s surface, where it spreads and absorbs moisture from within. It delivers pure hyaluronic acid to condition the skin from the inside out. It also stimulates collagen and elastin production, resulting in softer skin and a more even skin tone. Once injected into the skin, it quickly disperses and bonds with your tissues to boost hydration.
Here’s what to expect during a Profhilo session: your doctor will inject a gel-like substance containing hyaluronic acid into your skin. There are several injection points within target areas, and Profhilo typically gets injected five times on each side of the face or the neck. You’ll probably feel a stinging sensation for up to 90 seconds after each jab, but no pain, no gain, right?
What are the benefits of Profhilo?
Botox and fillers are injectables, yes. And while Profhilo also falls under the same category, it veers closer to skincare. Botox and fillers alter your muscles to prevent folding and movement or redefine your face shape. Profhilo, on the other hand, targets your skin by acting on multiple levels. On the surface, it improves your complexion by smoothing your skin tone and giving you a radiant glow. But on the inside, it penetrates deep into your skin to provide structure and support. It also hydrates your skin to add bounce and plumpness.
And because Profhilo boosts collagen, it effectively treats sagging and wrinkles, particularly on the face and décolleté. Plus, it has fewer risks and less downtime but produces more visible results than topical creams.
What makes it different from Botox and fillers?
Profhilo is a gentle, regenerative treatment that enhances your skin instead of restructuring it. Botox and fillers are known to add volume, contour the face, and relax the facial muscles. However, Profhilo is an entirely different treatment – it’s mainly focused on delivering hydration to make you look younger and more radiant. It’s also a good starting point for more youthful skin that doesn’t yet require other cosmetic injectables. You can get Profhilo alongside Botox and fillers if you wish to maximise their benefits – just make sure to consult your cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist first!
