But between the popular aesthetic treatments like Profhilo, Rejuran and face fillers, which is the better option?

Let us first understand what each skin treatment offers.

How do injectables work?

Before any good aesthetic or cosmetic treatment, it is important to understand the process to manage your expectations during the procedure. Certain substances are administered into specific layers of the skin to produce a desired effect, either to fill in a loss in facial volume or enhance skin repair. 

Face fillers

A popular type of anti-wrinkle injectables, face fillers or dermal fillers are excellent anti-ageing face treatments. There are several types of facial fillers, with the most common ones made of: 

  • Hyaluronic acid (HA): A naturally occurring substance in the skin with the ability to retain moisture, keeping the skin supple and well-moisturized.
  • Calcium hydroxylapatite: A mineral-like compound naturally found in human bones with healing properties.

These fillers are injected underneath the surface layer (epidermis) of the skin into the dermis layer, where they even out deep folds, creases, and wrinkles.

People who struggle with a loss in facial volume in the cheeks, around or under the eyes, or on the forehead can also plump up these problem areas without paralyzing or inhibiting muscle movement (as seen with the use of Botox).

Skin boosters

Injectables such as Profhilo and Rejuran are part of an umbrella term called “skin boosters”. Skin boosters offer intense hydration to the skin to replenish the moisture barrier. The film of water on the skin helps to keep it feeling smooth and other skin problems at bay.

The skin boosters that are in demand contain: 

  • Hyaluronic acid (HA)
  • Polynucleotides (PN): A chain of biological molecules (nucleotides), with the most well-known biopolymer being the DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). Salmon DNA is used in skin boosters due to its powerful healing abilities and biocompatibility.

Skin boosters are injected under the skin at specific areas of the face, deep in the dermis or hypodermis layer. This allows active ingredients like HA and PN to attract water molecules to the targeted areas for instant hydration and rejuvenation.

Not all skin boosters or face fillers are suitable for everyone. But by choosing the right type, you can correctly address your skin or facial concerns in a timely and cost-efficient manner.

What is the difference between Profhilo, Rejuran Healer & face fillers?

A lack of facial fats can result in significant asymmetry in the facial structure and overall physical appearance. Similarly, your natural facial anatomy may also cause some asymmetry. 

Dermatologists and aesthetic doctors use face fillers to restore the facial volume and augment or contour the face to achieve a more desirable look. In addition to this, face fillers are also used to smoothen out deep wrinkles and fine lines.

With other skin conditions in the picture such as acne, dry or sensitive skin, fine lines and wrinkles, skin boosters are the more ideal treatment to counter against the pervasive skin imperfections and nourish the skin from within.

At the same time, this prevents further signs of ageing and enhances the skin’s natural healing properties.

Needle-free skin booster alternatives

However, as science and medicine continue to evolve, so do the methods of delivery in aesthetics. Needleless skin treatments allow for potent ingredients like Salmon DNA to be delivered transdermally into the skin - without breaking the skin tissue.

Not all clinics offer a non-invasive method for skin boosters. While we wait for science and technology to catch up for dermal fillers, we can seek comfort in that there exist needle-free skin booster options for those of us who do not like needles. 

The needleless skin booster treatments include: 

These non-invasive skin booster treatments use a revolutionary FDA-approved SkinElectroporation (S.E.P.) technology to deliver active ingredients into the skin, thus eliminating needles, pain, or downtime from the procedures.
