Injectable Skin Boosters
Injectable Skin Boosters
Hyaluronic acid is a clear gel-like material produced in our body. It is composed of a chain of sugar molecules found in high concentration in our skin. Here it works by attracting and holding on to water to hydrate the skin while volumising and lubricating the surrounding tissue. Hyaluronic acid not only helps skin elasticity but also has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to help skin heal.
We break down our natural hyaluronic acid every few days and new ones are constantly produced. As we get older, the rate of hyaluronic acid production slows down. This can be affected by internal and external factors leading to poor skin laxity, dehydrated skin and skin that lacks lustre. By using the right form of hyaluronic acid in our skincare or injecting it as into the skin, we can replenish the hyaluronic acid levels in our skin.
Profhilo® is an innovative product which integrates into the tissue where it restores the levels of hyaluronic acid naturally found in the skin. Clinical data confirms that it stimulates the remodelling of the skin improving skin texture, elasticity and hydration with an immediate tightening effect. It contains a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid than dermal filler, but it does not work like dermal fillers. It contains both short and long chains of hyaluronic acid fused by NAHYCO hybrid technology to provide exceptional benefits to the skin. Unlike dermal fillers, it promotes tissue regeneration without adding volume. By influencing skin cells at a cellular level, it improves the function of the skin as a whole.
It is both highly stable yet highly flowable and once injected, able to spread like honey beneath the skin.
