Profhilo Singapore: What is Profhilo, and how does it work, and what should you expect?

We naturally lose collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin as we age, usually in our 30s. Even though it is natural to age, the tissue quality responsible for maintaining the youthful look sometimes deteriorates more rapidly, leaving us looking older than we are.

If you can relate to this and wondering how you can reverse those signs of aging, getting profhilo in Singapore may be your best bet. The Artisan Clinic administers profhilo treatments to help reverse signs of aging for persons who feel that their facial tissues are rapidly becoming loose, sagging, or making you appear older than your real age.

If you’re younger, you can also benefit from this treatment’s preventative effects where it would increase your skin’s hydration levels to strengthen its elastin and collagen tissues. It can also be used in conjunction with other skin booster treatment options like Botox and fillers for even more impressive results.

What is Profhilo?

Profhilo is an anti-aging treatment that helps boost the skin’s hydration levels while also stimulating elastin, collagen, and adipocytes to resolve skin laxity. It has the highest Hyaluronic acid (HA) concentration averaging 64mg/2ml.

Here’s how profhilo works;

Your aesthetic surgeon will administer profhilo injections in 5 precise Bio Aesthetic Points (BAPs). This will help ensure that the compound reaches your skin’s essential layers: the epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous layers.

To ensure safety, the BAP points are specifically located away from major blood vessels and nerves, implying that you have lesser risks of suffering injuries. After your treatment, the cells responsible for collagen and elastin production will be stimulated over the next 3 to 6 months as the treatment takes effect. This would then help restore your skin’s smoothness and tightness, thereby improving your skin’s overall quality.

How long does Profhilo Take to Work?

After your injection, the product typically remains in your skin for around 28 days. It gradually releases HA during this period, thereby stimulating collagen production while also hydrating and improving your skin’s quality.

Now, profhilo is known to deliver quick but long-lasting skin rejuvenation results. Therefore, your profhilo treatment would start working immediately after the treatment.

You should expect the treated areas to evenly have improved volume within 24 to 48 hours following your treatment. Considering that it’s specially formulated to flow through your dermis and subcutaneous tissues freely, you shouldn’t expect to develop nodules or lumps that may need a massage to level out.

If you’re yearning for results that would last longer, you should consider two profhilo treatments, spaced four weeks apart. You may notice a few improvements almost immediately after the treatment, but those are preliminary results.

You should notice the best results after around four weeks following your second treatment. After eight weeks, your skin should appear more youthful, hydrated, and healthy.

Is Profhilo Dangerous?

Profhilo is generally not dangerous. However, that doesn’t imply that it is 100 percent safe.

Just like other injection treatments, it is possible to experience a few side effects. The side effects are also usually not serious; implying that may not warrant a hospital stay, but you will certainly need to get in touch with your doctor if they persist for more than 2 to 3 days.

Some of the common side effects you can expect include; bruising, swelling, and reddening on the treatment area. Some of the adverse but rarest side effects that may come as a result of this skin booster treatment include nerve damage, allergic reactions, or infections.

Your skin doctor or aesthetician will give you essential guidelines to follow to minimize the risks of being exposed to these side effects. Here are some of the things you may expect to be required to avoid after getting profhilo in Singapore.

What you should not do after Profhilo in Singapore?

  • If you experience bruising or prolonged swelling, be sure to avoid UV light or sun exposure. Too much sun exposure may cause skin discoloration on the area you got the injections.  If you’ll be engaging in any activity that may expose the treatment areas to the sun, be sure to wear your sunscreen always.
  • Strenuous physical exercises. After the treatment, your dermatologist will caution you against strenuous exercises for 24 hours. This is because the exercises would increase blood flow, making the swelling and bruising on the injection points worse.
  • Wearing makeup. It is also advisable that you do not touch your face and avoid wearing makeup after your treatment for 48 hours. Wearing makeup may increase your risks of developing infections, so it is wise to avoid them just to be safe.
  • Steam baths and sauna. It is also wise that you avoid steam baths and saunas for some days after your treatment. This is crucial since they may make the injection points more inflamed.

Profhilo is an effective anti-aging treatment. Nonetheless, it requires the skill of a qualified skin doctor to get the desired results.

Yeast Infection Treatment: What will happen if a Yeast Infection is Left Untreated?

Yeast infections in the vagina occurs when there is an overgrowth of fungus; Candida in the vaginal flora, causing an imbalance of Candida and Lactobacillus bacteria. Yeast infection symptoms may manifest themselves in the form of a burning or itching sensation in the vagina.

You may also experience a watery vaginal discharge. Yeast infections are common. Studies estimate that 75 percent of women get these infections at least once in their lifetime.

If you get a recurrent yeast infection, the Health Advisory Clinic recommends that you talk to your doctor and most importantly, start your yeast infection treatment. Knowing the signs and symptoms of a yeast infection can help you get effective treatment to manage your condition.

How soon would you Get Yeast Infection Symptoms?

The duration when your yeast infection symptoms may take to appear usually depends on what caused the overgrowth of Candida fungus in your vagina. The overgrowth may be due to an existing medical condition like diabetes or HIV.

It may also be due to hormonal imbalance during pregnancy, menopause, or menstrual cycles. Some people also experience this imbalance due to lifestyle activities like poor eating habits, douching, extended use of antibiotics and use of hormonal birth control pills, etc.

Depending on these causes, you may get your yeast infection symptoms within 1-3 days. If it is a recurrent yeast infection, the symptoms may advance quickly, making you notice them earlier.

Here’s a rundown of other telltale signs of a yeast infection that may warrant yeast infection treatment;

  • Redness that may come with swelling of the vulva
  • Vaginal rash
  • Thick, cottage cheese-like odorless vaginal discharge
  • Vaginal pain that may come with soreness

How can you effectively get rid of a Yeast Infection?

A large fraction of the yeast infections are usually not severe and can go away on their own. However, if the symptoms are severe, there is a large selection of remedies that can effectively manage your condition.

Some of the possible treatments that can help manage the infection include;

  • Fluconazole doses
  • Use of OTC vaginal suppositories, ointment, cream, or tablets as prescribed by your clinician

You should see your doctor for yeast infection treatment if;

  • You develop other worrisome symptoms
  • It is the first time you’re getting a yeast infection
  • Your symptoms are not improving even after using OTC vaginal suppositories, tablets, ointment, or cream
  • You’re not sure if that’s a yeast infection

Is it Okay to Tough Out your Yeast Infection?

It isn’t really a wise idea to leave your yeast infection untreated. If you’re getting a recurrent infection or the symptoms aren’t getting better with the OTC medications, your best bet would be to schedule an exam and most probably start your yeast infection treatment.

Here are a few things that may happen if you leave your yeast infection untreated;

It may affect your pregnancy

If you’re getting the yeast infection symptoms at a time when trying to get pregnant, it would be better if you have it treated. Active yeast infections are believed to prevent or delay pregnancies. To some extent, this is believed to happen since an active yeast infection will also cause an imbalance of vaginal secretions pH. This would, in turn, create an unfavorable environment for the sperms.

You may get bacterial infections

The itching and burning sensation would always give you a strong urge to scratch the vagina. The scratching may leave open raw wounds that would predispose you to other bacterial infections that may be complicated to treat or live with. You may also get unsightly inflammation in the vagina.

You may suffer a miscarriage, premature delivery or pass it to your baby

According to a recent study, if you’re pregnant, an active yeast infection may increase your risk of miscarriage or premature delivery. If you leave an active yeast infection, too, you may as well pass it to your infant’s mouth during vaginal delivery. Therefore, the baby would develop a condition known as ‘thrush’ which is a yeast infection of the mouth.

You may also suffer an Invasive Candidiasis

Now, invasive candidiasis is when the yeast infection spreads to other parts of the body. Some of the parts of your body that may be affected by an untreated yeast infection include;

  • The heart
  • Brain
  • Eyes
  • Blood and
  • The bones

Invasive candidiasis may also lead to a Candida sepsis condition whereby the Candida may affect other body organs via blood. Yeast infections are also believed to cause infections of organs like the lungs and heart.

Yeast infections that are spread throughout the blood are also known to cause esophageal candidiasis. Some of the effects of esophageal candidiasis include complications during eating and swallowing, which may end up causing malnutrition.

You can prevent yeast infections by keeping your blood sugar level in control if you live with diabetes. You can also minimize the risk of getting a yeast infection by avoiding sex if your partner has an active yeast infection. Eating probiotics may also help balance your vaginal flora to prevent yeast infection.
