Facial rejuvenation

Both Profhilo and fillers share the primary goal of facial rejuvenation. They are designed to address common signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of skin volume. These treatments target specific areas of concern to enhance the overall appearance of the face.

Non-surgical Procedure

Both Profhilo and fillers are non-surgical treatments. This makes them appealing to individuals seeking cosmetic enhancements without the need for invasive procedures. Compared to a facelift, it’s a non-invasive option with very minimal downtime.

Hyaluronic Acid

The main similarity between these treatments? Their use of hyaluronic acid (HA). This is a natural substance found in the skin that helps retain moisture and provides a plumping effect. Both Profhilo and fillers utilize synthetic HA to deliver their results.

What’s the difference between the two?

  • Technique – Profhilo is ideal for individuals seeking to improve overall skin quality, hydration, and texture. It is particularly effective for treating mild to moderate skin laxity. Additionally, it is commonly used to rejuvenate the face, neck, and hands. “Profhilo works to build collagen and elastin. It also increases skin hydration.Over time, patients appreciate skin tightening and lifting,” according to Dr. Rodnie Valerio of Belo BGC. Fillers, on the other hand, are versatile and can be used to target specific concerns. These include deep wrinkles, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and to add volume to the cheeks or lips. “They can cater more to face contouring and instant lifting, but no tightening,” said Dr. Valerio. 
  • Results & Durations – Profhilo generally requires two treatment sessions, one month apart, to achieve optimal results. The effects of Profhilo are gradual, with improvements in skin texture and hydration becoming noticeable over several weeks. The results typically last for about six to nine months. Fillers, depending on the type used and the area treated, offer more immediate results. These can be seen immediately after the procedure. The longevity of fillers varies depending on the type and brand of filler used. Results typically last between six months to two years.

So, what should I do?

According to Dr. Valerio, a patient can do both since they compliment each other. It’s up to the Belo doctor to decide which comes first, depending on the patient’s goals and needs. This is why consultation is very important.

Profhilo and fillers both have their merits in the realm of facial rejuvenation. Profhilo’s focus on overall skin quality and hydration makes it an excellent choice for those seeking a natural, gradual improvement. Meanwhile, for Fillers, with their ability to target specific concerns and provide immediate results, are preferred for those desiring more instant and customizable outcomes. Ultimately, the decision between Profhilo and fillers depends on your individual aesthetic goals and preferences.
