Profhilo in Singapore
Profhilo is the first BDDE-free injectable Hyaluronic Acid for hydrating skin and treating skin laxity.
With one of the highest concentrations of HA in the market (64mg/2cc), Profhilo has up to 5x more HA content than regular skinboosters.
What is Profhilo?
Profhilo not only provides excellent hydration to the skin, it also triggers natural collagen and elastin production to further improve skin elasticity. Due to its smooth consistency, it spreads out evenly within the skin layer without causing any lumps.
Manufactured by IBSA one of the leaders in Hyaluronic acid solutions. Profhilo is a combination of Low and High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid, developed with IBSA’s patented NAHYCO®️ technology.
The durability of Profhilo is increased by this unique hybrid complex, which in turn decreases its degradation by 8 x that of Hyaluronic Acid on its own. The unique NAHYCO Hybrid technology stabilised HA complex lasts much longer than other non cross-linked HA fillers.
The dual action of Profhilo owes its clever technology to both its Low and High molecular weight HA.
- Low molecular weight HA regenerates Hyaluronic Acid production and provides deep hydration to improve moisture levels within the skin.
- High molecular weight HA tightens the skin. It allows volumetric replacement that helps lift the skin without altering the appearance of facial features.
The Profhilo treatment kickstarts the bio- stimulation of 4 different types of collagen and elastin. This helps to improve skin laxity and quality over 3-6 months after the treatment.
What benefits can I get from Profhilo?
- Deep skin hydration
- Reduction of fine lines
- Improve skin laxity

- Skin firming
- Boost skin elastin levels

How is it done?
Profhilo is injected into the skin by using a very small needle.
The process is made more comfortable with the application of numbing cream prior to the procedure.
The specific injection technique formulated especially for Profhilo, is called the Bio Aesthetic Points (BAP) technique, which involves five injection points on each side of the face, in safe areas away from the major vessels, where there is also increased absorption. This technique is proven to minimize risk whilst maximizing spreadability. A slow injection technique is used to reduce discomfort, if any.
2 sessions, done by a specially trained injector, are required for the full treatment. It is recommended that after the first treatment, the next treatment takes place 1 month later. A booster session can be done about 6 months later for even better results.
Profhilo vs Skinbooster, What's the difference?
Profhilo is the new and improved version of the Skinbooster.
Profhilo not only provides hydration, it also helps stimulate collagen and brings about skin lifting and tightening. Skinboosters on the other hand only provides hydration to the skin.
Traditional Skinboosters require multiple small injections throughout the skin whereas Profhilo only requires 5 injection points per side of the face. This is due to the unique technology behind this product that allows it to spread nicely across the skin.
This translate to even lesser downtime, less discomfort and more beneficial results.
Instead of the usual 3 sessions that’s required for other Skinbooster treatments, Profhilo only requires 2 sessions for good results.
Profhilo vs Dermal Fillers (Cross- linked Fillers), What's the difference?
Profhilo will not augment your facial shape unlike dermal fillers ( cross- linked fillers).
For those who are worried that Profhilo may change your appearance, fret not, profhilo will only provide hydration and lifting.
If you are keen to augment or change facial contours, such as creating a higher nose bridge or a stronger chin profile, it is recommended to use dermal fillers such as Juvederm Voluma or Ultraplus instead.
Are there any side effects?
Downtime is minimal with the Profhilo treatment.
You may have a little swelling at the injection point right after the appointment, but these will subside within 24 hours.
As with most injectable treatments, small bruises or needle marks may appear over the injection sites which can be easily concealed.
Large blood vessels are avoided with the specially designed BAP injection technique with specific locations and fewer injection points.
Compared to other skinbooster treatments, Profhilo treatment requires much less injection points. This reduces pain and the risk of bruising or downtime. Profhilo is a great treatment for busy individuals who need to minimise downtime.
How soon can I see the effects from Profhilo?
Hydration effects can be seen as early as 1 week from the treatment, with maximum results at 1 month.
Lifting and firming of the skin is an effect of skin remodelling and will need 3-6 months to see the full results.
