Profhilo® is a skin injectable treatment that delivers hyaluronic acid to all the layers of the skin. Although Profhilo®’s main ingredient is similar to that of fillers and skinboosters, the hyaluronic acid in Profhilo® is significantly different in both concentration and structure. Known as 逆時針 or “Time Reversing Injection”, Profhilo® is a multi-purpose injectable treatment for skin rejuvenation, hydration and collagen stimulation.

Founded in Italy, Profhilo® has been widely used in the world since 2015, but for several years, its use has been limited to Europe. The well-reviewed skin injectable treatment has recently received our HSA approval in 2020, and is quickly gaining popularity and has become one of the most popular skin injectable treatments in Singapore.
Firstly, the concentration of hyaluronic acid in Profhilo® is about 5 times more than the average skinbooster, making it a skin injectable with the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid in the world.
Secondly, the chemical structure of hyaluronic acid in Profhilo® is also distinct from that of other injectable treatments. Most cross-linked hyaluronic acids before Profhilo® contain a chemical cross-linking agent, called 1,4-butanediol diglycidyl ether (BDDE). Hyaluronic acid in Profhilo, on the other hand, is thermally cross-linked to form a type of molecule called Hybrid Cooperative Complex (HCC).
The result is Profhilo®’s ability to ‘bio-remodel’ the skin tissue, improving hydration and skin firmness through collagen production. This also allows hyaluronic acids of high and low molecular weight to link together, allowing them to release slowly and dissipate evenly under the skin. In addition, it does not contain additives such as BDDE or Lidocaine. With this unique production process, the injected substance spreads extensively, minimising the risk of lumpiness.
