Named as one of the most popular anti-aging treatments in Europe in 2019, Profhilo is the first stabilised HA (hyaluronic acid) based injectable product manufactured without the use of chemical cross-linking agents.
Beyond just filling lines and wrinkles, Profhilo’s unique properties as a bio-remodelling of collagen and elastin structures in the skin can be used to treat saggy skin.
Profhilo is commonly known as the “injectable moisturiser”, and has the highest HA concentration that currently exists in the market, with its HA content containing 5 times more than the average skin booster treatment.
The HA in Profhilo is non cross-linked, which means that unlike fillers which fill the face in specific areas, Profhilo directly stimulates collagen and elastin production in the face, restoring aged tissue without volumisation.
Profhilo actively reverses the aging process and is thus considered a regenerative anti-aging treatment, as compared to more passive treatments.
Profhilo utilises a proprietary heat stabilisation process in its manufacturing. As a result, it lasts 8 times longer in the skin than other non cross-linked HA products.
This also means that HA of high and low molecular weight can link together, allowing it to release slowly and blend seamlessly into the skin, spreading all over the face evenly once injected.
HIFU is a well-known non-surgical procedure in Singapore that provides natural looking results for patients who notice early signs of aging such as laxity, the appearance of jowls and under-chin heaviness.
Profhilo is mostly used to treat the lower face, upper arms, knees, abdominal area as well as the area around neck & decolletage.
With just 5 BAP injection points on each side of the face, Profhilo diffuses through different skin layers across the widest areas of the face, resulting in a natural, lasting glow.
The 10 BAP injection points for the neck are carefully plotted to avoid vital structures, providing anti-aging benefits from deep within.
Your face will be cleansed thoroughly prior to the treatment. For sensitive patients, numbing cream may be applied to treatment areas.
The treatment utilises a fine needle to deposit the Profhilo HA complex in the dermal layer of the skin through a series of micro-injections.
Expect multiple bumps on the face which indicates that the treatment is effective. This short downtime will last 24-36 hours.
Profhilo is a safe and comfortable procedure that is recommended for those who want firmer, “bouncier” skin. At The Ogee Clinic, we take pride in crafting customised treatment packages to provide the most ideal outcome for you.

It is likely to experience a visible hydration effect on the skin as early as a few days after the first Profhilo treatment. Firming and skin tightening effects are usually evident after the second treatment, and improve over the next 2-3 months.

Profhilo is suitable for anyone in their late 20s and above experiencing skin laxity or dehydrated skin. This treatment has no upper age limit. In face, patients with more skin laxity will generally see more pronounced results
Profhilo has been clinically proven for safety, efficacy and bio-compatibility, therefore an allergy or skin test is not required before treatment.
However, we will not perform Profhilo treatment for the following groups of patients:
Always discuss your medical history in full with your doctor so they can assess your suitability for each treatment.
Profhilo treatment involves minimal discomfort. With the application of topical numbing cream, it is well-tolerated by most patients.
Optimal results usually can be seen after two sessions.
As an initial treatment, you can do two sessions one month apart. You can then repeat the procedure in six months’ time.
If you would like to retain the texture in your skin long-term, you can consider getting the treatment every 4-5 months.
After the injection, there will be visible bumps, and you may experience swelling or bruising on the skin. However, these bumps and bruising are temporary and will disappear within 24-36 hours due to the easy spreadability of Profhilo.
Profhilo is an effective treatment on its own and can rejuvenate your skin or give it a lift. However, it may not treat all your problems and can be combined with botox and fillers to achieve better results. It is advised to consult your doctor to address your concerns.
Within the next 24 hours, avoid strong skincare products like retinols and AHA products, and avoid vigorous exercise or activities that may cause skin redness such as visiting steam rooms or going under the sun.
