Skin Remodeling Treatment
Talk about the one ingredient that will give your skin the bounce of a 16 year old and halt aging in its tracks and I will gladly tell you it’s Hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a molecule that loves water. It has the capacity and capability to withhold 1000 times its weight of water, making it a hydration magnet. For maximum results, it is always recommended to apply your HA product on top of damp skin, as this will guarantee locking in all the moisture for a longer time into the skin.
Youth Preserve by SW1 uses Profhilo® which isn’t a traditional dermal filler but is a skin remodeling therapy. Its main call to fame is in its difference and its ability to stimulate your skin’s restructuring and rebuilding processes to confer younger looking skin naturally over time. Think skin radiance and glow as another upside.
What is Youth Preserve?
Youth Preserve uses Profhilo®, the world’s first BDDE-free stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) based product for treating skin laxity. (Most other traditional fillers use a chemical called BDDE). This makes Profhilo® one of the purest forms of hyaluronic acid that is almost chemical-free!
With one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market (64mg / 2ml) it not only boosts and hydrates the skin, it also remodels the ageing and sagging tissue.
Profhilo® delivers great results as a treatment on its own or in combination with other aesthetics treatments currently on offer.
“Anyone who presents with signs of skin ageing or who wishes to retard the aging process is suitable for treatment with Youth Preserve” says Dr Chua Han Boon. Youth Preserve uses a special 5-point technique that allows the product to spread evenly, thereby stimulating further collagen synthesis over time, effecting a reverse aging process in the months that follow.
HOW DOES YOUTH PRESERVE WORK
After a session of Youth Preserve, Profhilo® is placed under the skin stays for around 28 days. During this time, the stimulation of 4 different types of collagen and elastin takes place by slow release of HA.
The stimulation results in significant tissue improvement. That is why apart from its complexion boosting benefits, Youth preserve also has significant tightening and lifting effect on the tissue.
ADVANTAGES OF YOUTH PRESERVE (compared to traditional fillers)
Due to the controlled release nature of Profilho® used in Youth Preserve treatment, it does not trigger the first inflammatory cytokines making it very biocompatible. It also increases patient comfort during and after treatment and provides hydration to the skin especially in the epidermis – the Hydro effect. The sustained release also means that the benefits continue long after the treatment session, giving patients a fully rejuvenative experience even a month after.
Youth Preserve uses Profhilo® which does not contain the chemical BDDE found in most normal fillers. This provides a stable HA architecture in the dermis and gives a volumetric effect – the Lift effect.
Compared to traditional fillers, there is an increase in the expression levels of type I and type III collagen in fibroblast and type IV and VII collagen in keratinocytes, thereby granting recipients a forward thinking anti-aging effect.
This results in improved skin quality and skin hydration both in the dermis and epidermis. There is also increased production of endogenous HA and elastin giving the skin a more youthful look.
10 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUTH PRESERVE’S Profhilo®
1 || Youth Preserve is a skin remodeling treatment using Profhilo®. Designed for individuals with aging skin that is lacking volume and elasticity. It’s a non-invasive, swift and non-permanent filler that targets skincare rather than beauty or cosmetology adjustments.
2 || Profhilo® is a stabilized form of the miracle hydrating molecule hyaluronic acid. When injected, the slow release of Hyaluronic Acid stimulates the skin’s natural synthesis of collagen for plumped and firmed up skin.
3 || Profhilo® is strategically placed at five key points on the face, starting with each side just next to the ears, then on to the nasolabial fold (laughter lines around the mouth), chin, under the eyes and on the tops of cheeks.
4 || It is especially effective at treating those areas prone to laxity and sagging like the cheeks, neck, chest and décolletage. It hurts, not a lot, but it creates an unpleasant stinging sensation which lasts around 20 seconds. No downtime required.
5 || Youth Preserve takes a few days before you start to notice any visible improvement, mainly because unlike dermal fillers, the body will over time produce the skin-boosting ingredients itself, which understandably takes a while.
6 || The radiance boost is one you will have never experienced before from any number of creams, scrubs or serums and it keeps on getting better as the skin produces more and more collagen.
7 || A top-up appointment after one month is recommended. If you repeat the process twice a year you will reap an enduring glow. The results from Youth Preserve treatments will most often last for up to six months, but results can differ from person to person.
8 || Due to the way Profhilo® has been made, it acts as a hydrator rather than a filler, and is therefore fantastic for those with tired, dull and aging skin as it provides an overall more plump and luminous skin with improved texture.
9 || Youth Preserve is advised for individuals from around the age of 30 and upwards, who wish to target aging skin. This is an excellent choice for you if you don’t want to add volume to specific areas, as it instead provides volume and hydration across the skin, giving an overall rejuvenated appearance.
10 || If you’re looking for very subtle results, this treatment delivers. However, if you’re looking for a lifting of the face, neck or any other area, then a combination approach with fillers, threads or surgery could be recommended.
