Profhilo For Enhanced Skin Rejuvenation
Profhilo is the latest addition to the family of injectables that is scientifically-proven to lift your skin beyond those of regular dermal fillers and skinboosters. It remains an option for skin-lifting (in a syringe) — boosting suppleness of moisture and elasticity.
Aptly christened with the Chinese moniker of 逆時針which translates as a “time reversing injectable”, this is exactly what Profhilo does to your skin, bringing it back to a better place in time; where everything is a little less saggy, and a lot more hydrated. It is a recommended treatment for dull, tired, aging skin that is in desperate need of a burst of vitality.

Made In Switzerland, Profhilo Addresses Saggy Skin Issues
Profhlio is a bio-remodelling “injectable skincare” which engages 100% pure, unadulterated hyaluronic acid to address skin laxity and signs of aging through the bio-stimulation of collagen, elastin and adipocytes (fats) stem cells that were lost with the passage of time. By providing a dermal oasis to give your skin a huge hydration boost, Profhilo improves the tone and texture of your complexion with natural and beautifully subtle results, akin to the most instagrammable filter ever.
IBSA Pharma is one of world’s leading pharmaceutical companies in Switzerland for hyaluronic acid production & products containing hyaluronic acid and have developed Profhilo as a proven treatment for skin rejuvenation.
Hyaluronic Acid Injectables Are For Different Treatment Needs
Although Profhilo’s main ingredient is hyaluronic acid, the composition of HA in Profhilo differs from that found in more traditional dermal fillers and skinboosters.
Profhilo Comes In Higher Concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid
Profhilo contains 32mg of HMW hyaluronic acid (high molecular weight) and 32mg of LMW hyaluronic acid (low molecular weight), the concentration of hyaluronic acid in Profhilo is about 5 times more than your average skinbooster, making it the injectable with the highest hyaluronic aci content in the market today.
Chemically and Structurally Distinct, Profhilo is Different
Profhilo's Hyaluroic Acid chemical structure is distinct from that of other treatments. Most hyaluronic acids in medicine contain a synthetic, chemical cross-linking agent, called 1,4-butanediol diglycidyl ether or BDDE for increased stability and biomechanics. Hyaluronic acid in Profhilo, on the other hand, is thermally cross-linked to form a type of molecule called Hybrid Cooperative Complex (HCC) without any additives in an ultra-pure form.
By stimulating the production of 4 different types of collagen and elastin from within, it will emit the slow release of hyaluronic acid, which improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without the increased risk of inflammation and lumps in the skin associated with BDDE.

How does the treatment procedure work?
Profhilo works to intensely hydrate your skin for a smoother and more radiant complexion. It works as a bio-remodelling injectable treatment by infusing a very high concentration of ultra-pure hyaluronic acid into five different key points on each side of the face. By concentrating a defined volume of the compound in a few strategically placed anatomical points, it allows the active ingredient to progressively diffuse through the interstitial spaces like butter under the skin; stimulating the production of collagen and elastin to boost hydration and firmness as it goes.
Profhilo works in two stages as it begins to stimulate 4 different types of collagen and elastin, resulting in a slow and sustained release of hyaluronic acid. Over 2 treatments done a month apart, there will be a boost of hydration from within, leaving your skin feeling smoother, tighter and intensely nourished. Profhilo remains in the skin for around 28 days and continue to work hard to activate the production of essential anti-aging proteins and antioxidants, reinforcing the framework and scaffolding of the skin matrix for a prolonged skin firming and lifting effect.
How does the treatment feel like?
Coined the Bio Aesthetic Points, the five injection sites on each side of the face are chosen due to their receptiveness and absence of large, critical vessels and nerve branches. By employing the recommended BAP technique, we are minimising the risks and maximising the favourable outcome desired. You can expect some mild stinging sensation as the product is pushed under the skin. There can be pinprick marks with slightly raised bumps at the injection points immediately post treatment.
What can I expect afterwards?
You are able to return to your normal activities right away, and there are no special measures you need to take. The only thing you would need to take note of is to avoid strenuous physical activity and alcohol consumption for 24 hours after. The composition of Profhilo permits micro-bolus injection in a superficial plane without the risks of lumps, contour irregularities or tissue bulking, and there is no requirement for post-injection massage. The injected sites may appear slightly flushed and swollen immediately after getting treated, but these symptoms should resolve within a couple of hours. As with all injectables, there is a possibility of bruising or soreness which is usually mild and will resolve spontaneously without any further intervention.
What kind of results can I expect?
Profhilo is a skin quality treatment, for smoother texture, bounce, plumpness and elasticity. It remodels skin but will not make any difference to contours. You can expect to see the effects of intense dermal hydration, with your skin looking healthier and more radiant. There will be noticeable reduction, or even complete disappearance of fine lines depending on your true skin age. Even for those with more severe skin wrinkling, the textural improvement would be undeniable.
How long will my results last?
Depending on the condition of your skin, your diet and lifestyle, age and genetics, the positive outcome of a primary course of 2 sessions of Profhilo done a month apart will generally last for 9 to 12 months. We recommend a third session at the 6th month interval to optimize the achievable results, and most of our patients return every 6 to 12 months for a maintenance program. As part of good medical advice, a healthy lifestyle in moderation is always helpful to feel and look youthful.
Who is a good candidate?
Profhilo is an anti-aging treatment designed to restore your skin to its former glowing glory in a completely natural way. It is suitable for all ages, men and women of all skin types. Clients over the age of 30 who wants to rejuvenate tired, dull and aging skin can opt for this treatment which increases firmness and skin elasticity to give fine lines, wrinkles and sagginess the chop without “running the risk of an over-filled pillow face”. Profhilo remodels skin but will not make any difference to contours and volume. It is especially useful for men who desire some degree of overall skin rejuvenation without a softening effect to the masculinity of facial features.
Having said that, hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are still great aesthetics tools for lift, volumizing and facial contouring when desired. As for deeply etched expression lines the likes of pesky forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet, People seeking filler treatments should be considering Profhilo to work in the background too. As you reset your skin’s age to a better place in time, other injectable results will look better and last longer. And the better your skin, the longer you will be able to use injectables to give it a natural looking boost without the need for surgery.
Can it be used on other parts of my body?
Profhilo is most commonly used for the face but it can also be effectively applied to help revitalise the neck, décolletage, arms, hands and knees. The neck especially is an oft-neglected body part that is becoming an increasing popular area to have Profhilo due to its ability to help reduce crepe-like skin and sagginess, for a firmer, and more youthful looking appearance.
Profhilo will give you the lift you have been searching for.
