Profhilo Injection Singapore (逆時針) : 15 Questions - All You Need To Know [2024]

Are you looking to give your skin a boost? Do you want to keep your skin looking firm and youthful? Profhilo® is an innovative skin rejuvenation treatment that converts tired, dull-looking skin, giving you a hydrated, firm, luminous, and radiant complexion. This non-surgical skin remodelling treatment contains one of the highest concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) on the market.

As we get older, we lose proteins and vitamins such as Collagen and Elastin that keep our skin firm and youthful. Profhilo® stimulates the production of four different types of Collagen and Elastin over a period of 28 days to improve the appearance of your skin. This non-surgical treatment is administered by injection into five key areas of your face which are Zygomatic protrusion, Nasal base, Targus, Chin, and Mandibular angle. Profhilo® is suitable for anyone over the age of 25 and can be used as an anti-ageing and preventative treatment to help you maintain good skin health. For the best results Profhilo® should be delivered in two stages within 28 days. The first treatment slowly releases Hyaluronic Acid and stimulates Collagen and Elastin and is known as the activation stage. The second treatment provides instant results and is known as the elevation stage which boosts hydration and leaves your skin feeling smoother, tighter, and better nourished.

Considering getting a Profhilo treatment near me but unsure if it's truly worth the time and money? With a plethora of fascination – and confusion - surrounding this procedure, we've simplified the process for you by addressing some of the 15 most common questions about Profhilo.

In this blog, you'll delve into what exactly Profhilo entails, its mechanism of action, and find answers to queries like "How long does Profhilo last?", "How soon does Profhilo show results?", "Is Profhilo safe?", and more! Let's embark on this journey to determine whether investing in a Profhilo treatment is indeed worthwhile.

Question 1:

WHAT ARE PROFHILO INJECTIONS SINGAPORE (逆時針)?

Profhilo injections are non-surgical, injectable moisturizer treatment that aims to reverse the signs of ageing. The treatment uses hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally produced by our bodies. Hyaluronic acid stimulates collagen and elastin production, which helps the skin maintain its firmness and elasticity, reducing the appearance of fine lines and skin laxity. Profhilo can give clients noticeable and long-lasting results. The injection is administered into the skin and works in two ways. It immediately hydrates and over time smooths and lifts the skin to provide clients with a youthful-looking appearance.

Due to the high concentration of hyaluronic acid, profhilo disperses quickly underneath the skin’s surface and instantly reacts with your own tissue to boost hydration. The most common area people choose to have Profhilo is the face. However, you can also use the treatment on your arms, hands, neck, knees, and chest. 

Question 2:

HOW DOES PROFHILO (逆時針) WORK?


Profhilo works by having ultra-pure hyaluronic acid precisely injected into the area being treated. Unlike wrinkle reducing and dermal filler treatments, Profhilo® stimulates collagen and elastin, attracting water in the deeper layers of the skin.

Profhilo contains a mixture of 50% low molecular weight (L-HA) and 50% high molecular weight hyaluronic acid (H-HA), which have different advantages for the skin. The former provides hydration to the skin’s surface layer, while the latter provides a lifting effect. 

The treatment uses the BAP or bio-aesthetic points technique, with only five injection points on each side of the face (a total of 10). This helps with optimal product diffusion or achieving maximum results with less discomfort and fewer sessions. The BAP technique, furthermore, minimizes the risk of bruising.

Question 3:

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS FROM PROFHILO (逆時針)?


You are able to see or may notice some basic hydration and skin texture after two treatment sessions, spaced one month apart.
Unlike dermal fillers, which offer instant results, Profhilo requires a little more patience. You need two treatment sessions, spaced one month apart. Following these sessions, you’ll gradually notice improvements in your skin’s hydration and elasticity due to the new collagen production over the subsequent weeks.

The great thing about bio-remodelling treatment is it forces your body to get into the mode of collagen and elastin production.

This means that your body gets to work immediately after your injections and starts making its own collagen and elastin.

This takes time and only gets better the longer we wait.

Treatment Duration 15 minutes
Recommended Sessions 2-3 sessions
Recommended Interval 2-3 sessions 1 month apart, then 6-monthly maintenance thereafter
Recovery Time Minimal

Question 4:

HOW LONG DOES PROFHILO LAST?

How long the results from a Profhilo treatment lasts varies depending on the individual and the treated area. On average, the results can last between 6-12 months, but the longevity of the treatment can also depend on the dosage, as well as frequency of the treatment. We recommend patients receive 2-3 treatments, 1 month apart, then 6-monthly maintenance thereafter to achieve the best results.  

Question 5:

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PROFHILO INJECTION?

Benefits of Profhilo injection start with an immediate boost in skin hydration. Profhilo is a breakthrough treatment in the anti-ageing industry. It has a multitude of benefits including: 

  • Improving skin hydration and moisture levels 
  • Stimulating 4 different types of collagen and elastin 
  • Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles 
  • Restoring skin luminosity and dewiness 
  • Lifting loose, sagging skin
  • Improving skin laxity 
  • Restoring volume to sunken or hollow areas 
  • Tightening skin for a youthful and more taut appearance 
  • Strengthening and firming skin texture 
  • Being non-invasive with minimal downtime 

Question 6:

WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH PROFHILO (逆時針)? IS IT JUST FOR THE FACE?


Areas that can be treated with Profhilo is face and body.
These include the:

  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Hands
  • Knees 
  • Stomach
  • Inner arms

There is also Profhilo Body, which also provides lasting hydration and remodels the skin by stimulating collagen and elastin. It is designed for improving skin laxity in the different body areas, particularly the abdomen and inner arms. Profhilo Body reinvigorates crepey skin, moisturizes the skin deeply, and reduces skin aging. 

Question 7:

WHY DO YOU NEED 2 SESSIONS OF PROFHILO?

You need 2 sessions of Profhilo because Profhilo is designed to give you a gradual improvement in skin quality, skin hydration and more noticeable skin laxity.

The first treatment will give you the initial boost, but it’s important to have the second treatment to enhance the results.

When they inject Profhilo (hyaluronic acid), it will disperse evenly throughout the skin and start integrating naturally through the subcutaneous tissue; by having your two treatments, you can ensure a more natural and consistent improvement in skin quality.

Question 8:

WHY DOES PROFHILO TAKE SO LONG TO WORK? (COMPARED TO DERMAL FILLER)

Dermal filler treatment is an entirely different skincare treatment that is designed to use a harder form of hyaluronic acid (HA) to fill a loss of volume, usually on the face.

While Profhilo is also a natural hyaluronic acid (ultra-pure hyaluronic acid), it is made differently. Instead of just filling a loss of volume, it will spread evenly and then trigger the body to start producing collagen and elastin.

This means this skin booster will take longer to show results, but it will be the ideal solution for things such as:

  • Ageing skin
  • Skin laxity
  • Skin tone (radiant glow)
  • Crepey skin
  • Overall skin health
  • Sagging skin
  • Deeper lines and wrinkles

You’ll find that the skin’s surface will look better as time goes on, and after your initial treatments, your dehydrated skin will appear hydrated and healthy.

Question 9:

PROFHILO (逆時針) VS REJURAN HEALER (婴儿针)

WHAT IS REJURAN HEALER:

REJURAN is a skin rejuvenation and recovery treatment. It is based on bio-compatible DNA fragments called polynucleotides (PN) which are derived from salmon skin. When injected into skin, PN molecules increase cellular activity, enhance collagen synthesis, and reduce inflammation, helping to heal damaged skin and repair signs of ageing.

Rejuran Healer enhances collagen production, improves skin elasticity, and firmness, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is made with polynucleotide (PN), a powerful compound that has been shown to stimulate collagen production and accelerate the skin's natural healing process.

Other benefits of Rejuran Healer (and why it’s so popular), include reduction of the appearance of acne scars through collagen production and increased skin hydration. Rejuran Healer is especially suitable for sensitive and damaged skin because of its natural healing properties. Latest, all you need to know about Rejuran Healer here.

Question 11:

IS PROFHILO TREATMENT PERMANENT?

Profhilo treatment is not permanent. Hyaluronic acid based treatments are not permanent. Eventually the ingredients will be absorbed by the body. This is a gradual process, so they won’t suddenly disappear overnight.

After your initial treatments, a Profhilo treatment every six months should be sufficient to maintain the benefits.

Question 12:

HOW LONG DOES PROFHILO LAST?

Profhilo can last between six to nine months. Since everyone has different skin conditions and concerns, the rejuvenation effects may last differently for each individual. This longevity is based on the premise that you undergo two treatments, spaced a month apart. While the hyaluronic acid present in Profhilo remains active in the dermis for about 28 days, it initiates the stimulation of four types of collagen and elastin during this time. This stimulation contributes to the lasting benefits you experience. For continued results, it’s advisable to schedule another session once you notice the initial effects diminishing, to maintain your skin’s hydration and glow.

Question 13:

WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF HAVING PROFHILO?

Like most procedures, Profhilo does have some potential side effects, risks and complications that you should be aware of. Although not everyone will experience these issues, you must be mindful that they can happen. If you experience any of the issues listed below, contact your aesthetic doctor as soon as possible. They will be able to guide you in the right direction. 

  • Bruising/swelling of the treatment area 
  • Skin conditions such as rashes and ulcers
  • Poor hygiene can cause infections which will lead to permanent scars 

Question 14:

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PROFHILO VS B'TX?

Difference between Profhilo and B'TX are as follows:

Like profhilo, B'TX is an injectable treatment. They are both popular anti-ageing treatments but differ in how they work. B'TX works by blocking specific chemical signals from the nerves. This causes the muscles to relax, which softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Profhilo injection differs as it uses hyaluronic acid injections. Rather than relaxing the muscles – and reducing facial movements, the treatment acts as a skin booster. It increases the skin’s collagen and elastin levels, adding hydration. This makes the treated skin look more plump and youthful. 

Both treatments are highly effective anti-ageing injections but have different uses.

B'TX injections are for treating active wrinkles around the eyes, forehead and frown line.

Profhilo is usually injected in the middle and lower part of the face as well as the neck. It’s great if you want to improve skin quality by increasing hydration and skin bounciness. As such it’s good for improving crepiness, thin or dry skin and texture. You can also combine B'TX injections on the upper face and Profhilo injection for a highly effective anti-wrinkle treatment for the whole face.

Profhilo is not a replacement for fillers nor muscle-relaxing toxins. It does, however, rejuvenate and give the skin a lift to further complement or boost the effect of the subsequent treatment. It will be best to speak to your aesthetic doctor about what would help your issues the most.

Question 15:

PROFHILO PRICE: HOW MUCH DOES PROFHILO COST IN SINGAPORE?

The cost of Profhilo in Singapore starts from $1000 per syringe (2cc) (excl gst), and $3000 for 4 sessions. Cost may vary accordingly depending on the individual’s needs and preferences. Depending on your skin condition, more than one (1) Profhilo treatment session might be needed to achieve desired results. Result varies with individuals.
