It works at several levels and creates structure, support and hydration that give your skin its bounce and plumpness. While botox and fillers aim to change the shape and movement of your face, Profhilo treatment in Singapore is the ultimate skincare step. Dr Taktouk explains that Profhilo achieves its results by acting on multiple levels. ‘Our patients are consulted first to determine if they are suitable for the treatment. On the surface, we see improved texture and tone.
The potential side effects of Profhilo treatment in Singapore are discussed alongside the specific benefits that that patient might expect. As part of our discussions, we often provide written information and schedule follow-up appointments for treatment. New patients are encouraged to take advantage of this “cool-off period” to evaluate their treatment options. A consent form is signed when the patient arrives at the clinic for treatment.
Before entering a treatment room, patients are photographed around the treatment area and added to their medical records. When we’re comfortable, we examine the area to be treated, looking for visible blood vessels, unhealthy skin areas, moles or lesions to avoid. An antimicrobial solution is then applied to the skin. After the skin is cleaned and happy with the result, the treatment begins. The procedure involves five specific injections on each side of the face.
There are ten total injections. It takes less than five seconds to administer one injection. A gauze is held over the injection sites if needed, and an antimicrobial product containing arnica is used to clean the area. During the process, we employ various techniques to help reduce discomfort – squeezy balls the patient can hold and a vibrating face tool. If you rub the area when you hurt yourself, it reduces the pain sensation – think about it when you hurt yourself and rub it. After 12 hours, the patient is advised not to touch the area or apply makeup but can continue normally.
It is important to avoid certain medications, heavy exercise and alcohol for 48 hours to reduce bleeding risk. Two to three treatments are recommended every month. Dr Williams says that once the treatment is complete, you will notice an improvement in your skin, making it appear plumper, hydrated, and youthful. Many people see an improvement in their skin after a week or two. As the body needs 6-8 weeks to produce collagen and elastin, the real results will show 6-8 weeks after starting the product. This is when the real changes start to show in terms of results.
