If you haven’t heard, Youth Preserve is a new hyaluronic acid injectable in the market. You can have this injected even if you have sufficient volume in your face and it won’t make you look bigger or more puffy.
Before we continue (it’s confusing, we know), it’s useful to know that there are two main types of fillers – volumizing fillers and skinboosters. The former is designed to replace lost volume and is usually injected deeper. These fillers can also be used to sculpt or enhance bony structures of the face, such as the nose, or the chin. These fillers have variable hardness and last duration once injected. Skinboosters involve multiple tiny injections of a very soft, watery hyaluronic acid filler superficially into the skin. The primary use of skinboosters is to hydrate and improve skin elasticity.
Youth Preserve is actually Profhilo. It is definitely not Botox, and strictly speaking, Profhilo is not a filler nor a skinbooster. It is made of hyaluronic acid, but it has the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid compared to all other fillers. Yet, Profhilo is amazingly soft, and rarely causes any lumps and bumps.
Because it is uniquely structured, it also does not contain any chemical cross-linking agents and stays approximately 30 days in the skin, before being degraded naturally by the skin. The most amazing effect of Profhilo is the visible anti-aging effect on skin, by stimulating collagen. Think of it as an injectable moisturizer (because it is made of hyaluronic acid) that is uniquely structured molecularly to ultimately stimulate the skin to produce collagen.
The effects expected after injection include a skin hydrating effect, one can expect an improvement in the appearance of fine lines and pores sizes. Over a few months, skin firming effects can be observed – in fact people who have received this treatment often report highly satisfactory effects of improved bounciness and noticeably younger-looking skin!
Profhilo can be used to treat the face, with 5 bioaesthetic points of injections per side of the lower face covering the cheeks, and near the nasolabial and marionette folds. It can also be used to treat the forehead and the neck. 2 treatments are required 30 days apart, and that’s all for at least the next 6 months!
This is possibly the best thing for women and men alike, whether you are looking for a simple, fuss-free anti-aging treatment, or whether you are looking for a finishing touch on top of other beauty treatments you might already have embarked on.
