Review - I tried Profhilo, A Hyaluronic Acid Injection at Halley Medical Aesthetics

Who wants to slow down aging without having to put in much effort?

Did you know that experts have found that skin aging typically starts around age 25? In our mid-20s, our bodies gradually start to stop producing as much collagen as before which causes our skin to lose elasticity. While you can't turn back the clock hence, early prevention is key.

For me, I sleep and work in an air-conditioned room. I'm practically living in an aircon environment during the majority of my day. It really annoys me that I need to keep reaching out for moisturizer or mist spray to prevent my skin from dehydration, it's really costly in long run in terms of time and money consumption.

I figured that this all can be solved by Profhilo®, an anti-aging skin booster treatment for treating skin laxity and arresting other signs of aging at Halley Medical Aesthetics. It's a hyaluronic acid injection with low downtime so I achieve healthier looking skin faster, which means I won't have to worry too much about my skin being slack.

About Profhilo

Profhilo contains hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a natural compound found in our skin that helps to hydrate and volumize our skin. What is unique about Profhilo is that it contains a high and low molecular weight HA, which prolongs the lifting and hydration benefits of HA in our body.

Due to its deep hydration capability and its ability to boost collagen and elastin levels, Profhilo can be injected into the lower face and neck for:
  • Lifting and firming sagging skin
  • Smoothening fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hydrating dull, aged, and dry skin to achieve healthier-looking skin

In early September I had my face treated with Profhilo by Dr. Terence Tan. The treatment requires a unique application technique where Profhilo is injected to specific points on the face to achieve the desired result. This technique avoids areas with large blood vessels or nerve branches, minimising the chance of bruising.

To achieve results, two treatments spaced one month apart are required. It can also be combined with other synergistic treatments like Ultherapy, rejuvenating lasers, and dermal fillers to enhance the volumising and lifting effect, as well as improve skin tone and texture.

As Profhilo is minimally invasive, no downtime treatment, minimal post-treatment care is required. It's okay not to use numbing cream too, I opt for an ice pack instead to save waiting time. I returned to my normal activities immediately, I still remember I went shopping right after my treatment. It's okay to put on makeup too but I didn't because I felt that the small bump that remained over the injection points can be covered with my mask, furthermore it goes away in one day for me. 

I then maintain my skin with Halley Medical Aesthetics’ Brilliance skincare range which comprises physician-grade cosmeceuticals and is specially formulated by Dr. Terence Tan to care for my skin. I believe that if I pair the right products with my treatment, I can optimize my treatment results and even prolong them.

These are the Brilliance Skincare products picked to promote skin hydration and enhance the effects of the Profhilo treatment, as well as keep the skin firm and supple while combating the effects of ageing:
