We all want to look and feel our best, and when it comes to our skin, the quest for youthful radiance is never-ending. Thankfully, science has come to our aid with the latest in skin boosters, and two products in particular have been making waves in the beauty world: Profhilo and Jalupro. These two injections are packed with ingredients designed to hydrate your skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production, leaving you with brighter, more youthful-looking with fresh skin.

First, let's talk about what collagen is. Collagen is a type of the structural protein and it’s the most abundant protein in your body. In fact, a large part of our skin is composed of collagen. So, the collagen plays an essential role in the structure and function of skin, as well as in elasticity and hydration. So that collagen helps maintain the shape of the skin. As you age, your body produces less collagen with lower quality, leading to dry skin and the formation of wrinkles. And one bad news is that Women experience a significant reduction in collagen production after menopause. So, a healthy supply of collagen gives us a youthful-looking complexion. This is why there is so much focus on collagen in the aesthetics world and why collagen is considered key for skin renewal.

What lifestyle habits damage collagen? 

Smoking, eating too much sugar, and too much sunlight exposure damage and reduce collagen production.

What can we do to improve skin collagen loss to slow the signs of aging?

Eat a well-balanced diet, like the Mediterranean diet, which is loaded with vegetables, beans, whole grains, nuts and fruits and a moderate amount of seafood, meats, poultry, dairy and eggs. So, to improve damage to the collagen in your skin, don’t smoke, avoid second-hand smoke, less sugar and wear sunscreen every day.

Profhilo and Jalupro are innovative remodeling treatments (bio remodeling) that were created to target dullnes, lack of elasticity and volume loss in the skin. Profhilo and Jalupro not only boost and hydrate the skin, but also remodel ageing and sagging tissue. These products are injectable treatments containing one of the highest concentrations of stabilized hyaluronic acid available on the cosmetic market. It is known as a skin remodeling treatment and is specially formulated to target skin laxity.

A good candidate for skin booster injections is typically someone who is concerned about the signs of aging on their skin, such as fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and dullness. This treatment is typically recommended for individuals who are in their late 20s or early 30s and beyond, as this is the age when our bodies naturally start to produce less collagen. In general, skin booster injections are safe for most people and do not have side effects. 

What Areas Can Profhilo and Jalupro Be Used For?

The most common areas of treatment include the face and neck and can also be used for the décolletage, hands, arms, knees and abdomen area where it would effectively treat skin laxity. The treatment is suitable for men and women as well as offering skin benefits for patients of all ages. 

Overall, if you are concerned about the signs of aging on your skin and are looking for a minimally invasive and effective way to address these concerns, skin booster injections may be a good option for you. However, it's important to have a consultation with a licensed and experienced Doctor to determine if this treatment is right for you.
