Although Profhilo®, skin boosters & dermal fillers are all made up of hyaluronic acid (HA) , Profhilo is a very different treatment from either skinboosters or dermal fillers. It improves the skin quality, rather than add volume. The treatment process, effects, and technology are very different from traditional skinbooster treatments. The main difference is due to a unique hyaluronic acid molecule called the Hybrid Coorperative Complex (HCC) which has a combination of both low and high molecular weight HA.
Skin boosters replace lost hyaluronic acid in our skin to restore hydration and elasticity. The procedure involves multiple tiny injections of a low viscosity HA filler into the mid layers of the skin. Common skin boosters are non cross linked including Teosyal Redensity 1 & Restylane Vitale.
Fillers, on the other hand, replace lost volume or treat lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers such as Belotero, Teosyal, Restylane & Juvederm are also made up of HA. Crosslinking the HA molecules with BDDE helps to improve the lifting properties and increase longevity.
