From Botox and fillers to skin peels and laser treatment, ‘tweakments’—non-surgical and minimally-invasive treatments—have been increasingly popular not for their ability to dramatically transform faces, but rather to subtly enhance features and restore youthfulness and radiance.
Amongst the latest, up-and-coming anti-ageing treatments, is Profhilo, a hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable.
Not quite like other injectable ‘tweakments’, Profhilo counteracts wrinkles and sagging skin through the bio-remodelling of collagen and elastin structures in the skin to improve hydration and plump up your visage—but is it better?
“One main advantage is that Profhilo requires fewer sessions to be done, and provides even higher amounts of hydration,” says Dr Gerard Ee, medical director of The Clifford Clinic. The aesthetic clinic at Raffles Place is one of the first clinics to bring in the highly-raved treatment to Singapore.
“It has almost no downtime as compared to fillers, skin boosters or Rejuran healer but they each serve different functions. HA fillers help to contour and augment facial features by restoring volume to the face and are suitable for any age group. Skin boosters are best for dry and dull skin to hydrate and brighten up the complexion, while Rejuran healer improves skin quality and minimises the appearance of enlarged pores and acne scars,” Dr Ee explains.
“All of these treatments are effective and give significant results if done properly.”
