10 things to know about Youth Preserve using Profhilo®

How does Youth Preserve work?

Youth Preserve uses Profhilo® which is the world’s first BDDE-free stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) based product and excels in treating skin laxity. (Most other traditional fillers use a chemical called BDDE).

Having one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market (64mg / 2ml) Youth Preserve not only boosts and hydrates the skin, it also remodels the ageing and sagging tissue.

By using a special 5-point technique that allows the product to spread evenly, this therapy stimulates collagen production over time, effecting a reverse aging process in the months that follow.

After the 1st session of Youth Preserve, Profhilo® stays in the skin for around 28 days. During this time, the production of 4 different types of collagen and elastin takes place with significant tissue and complexion improvement, with a visibly tighter and more lifted appearance for the patient.
