If you’re looking to improve your skin’s hydration and overall quality, we at Cutis Laser Clinics have two injectable treatments: Profhilo™ Bioremodelling and JUVÉDERM® Volite. Both are made of hyaluronic acid (HA) and are focused on amplifying your skin’s hydration. Continue reading to learn the difference between these two injectables.
Also referred to as a bioremodelling injectable, Profhilo is an award-winning anti-aging treatment from Europe. It contains 100% pure hyaluronic acid and bio-stimulates collagen, elastin, and adipocytes (fat) stem cells. Profhilo is ideal for restoring hydration, addressing skin laxity, and treating other signs of aging.
How it works: This injectable treatment remodels the skin through a slow release of hyaluronic acid. This enables skin’s bioremodelling by stimulating the production of four types of collagen (I, III, IV, and VII), elastin, and proliferate fat stem cells. This then improves the hydration, tone, and texture of the skin, as well as its overall quality.
Profhilo uses the BAP (bio-aesthetic points) technique, with only five injection points on each side of the face. This helps minimize the risk of bruising and achieve better results with fewer sessions and less discomfort. It is mostly injected on the face and neck, but can also be used on the hands, chest, knees, and depressed acne scars.
Results: With just two Profhilo treatments, patients notice intense hydration benefits. There are other visible improvements such as smoother and plumper skin with lifting and tightening effects. You can expect for the results to continue over two to three months. They can last for six months, but this can sometimes depend on the patient.
Volite is a skin booster treatment that aims to improve the skin’s hydration in just a single treatment. It also contains hyaluronic acid (lower than Profhilo) and can be used to hydrate and improve skin elasticity, as well as correct fine lines and wrinkles. You can use JUVÉDERM® Volite on the face, neck, decolletage, and hands.
How it works: The hyaluronic acid in Volite combines with the water in the skin to improve its hydration and overall quality. Volite uses VYCROSS® technology, which is a manufacturing process that provides a high concentration of crosslinked HA. This allows blending of different HA molecular weights for long-lasting improvements.
JUVÉDERM® Volite has multiple injection points injected in the middle layers of the dermis to nourish the skin. It deeply penetrates the skin, which helps in stimulating the body’s own natural collagen. You can turn to Volite if you have mild laxity on the face, neck, and hands, as well as crepey skin texture, dry skin, and fine lines and wrinkles.
Results: Following your Volite treatment, you may notice plumping effects, but dramatic results are seen after two weeks. The results can last up to nine months and can provide significant improvement in skin quality for up to six months. This eliminates the needs for several treatments or injections.
Which is right for you?
Both treatments can improve your skin’s hydration and address certain signs of skin aging. Volite is skin booster treatment that can help plump up the skin, and treat dry skin and crepey skin texture. Profhilo, meanwhile, is ideal for skin remodeling, as it bio-stimulates 4 types of collagen, elastin, and fat stem cells.
While these injectables are safe and effective, they are still medical aesthetic procedures. This is why it only makes sense to get the treatment from skilled and experienced aesthetic doctors. Careful technique and attention to detail are both important in achieving natural-looking results and avoiding unwanted side effects.
