What is Profhilo®?
PROFHILO® is the newest generation of injectable skin moisturiser. It is based on a purified Hyaluronic acid formula with unique water binding properties. Our bodies own supply of Hyaluronic acid begins to tail off around our twenties, leaving the skin drier and more prone to signs of ageing and environmental damage. The result is a visible reduction of fine lines with a glow and fresh and radiant look to your skin.
PROFHILO® interact with the body’s receptors to cause the collagen stimulation. It also produces a higher activation of elastin synthesis in the fibroblasts and keratinocytes. PROFHILO® stimulates 4 different types of collagen and elastin, resulting in the skin looking instantly tighter. A month later following a second treatment, new collagen and elastin starts to become apparent and by the time you have finished, the face will look revitalised.
PROFHILO® is injected using a unique specialised technique called BAP (BIO AESTHETIC POINTS). The BAP technique is 5 entry points of injection for each side of the face. This technique is proven to be anatomically safe avoiding the large vessels and nerves within the face and will give you maximised results with the minimum number of injections required.
The advantages of Profhilo are:
- 5 injection only per side
- Reduced pain (slow injection)
- Lower possibility of bruising or hematoma
- Reduced number of treatment sessions
- Greater pain compliance
- This treatment usually takes 30 minutes depending on the size of the area
What is Bio Remodelling?
PROFHILO® rejuvenates the skin and increases collagen and elastin production in the different layers of the skin by:
- Stimulating fibroblasts
- Activating Keratinocytes
- Supporting Keratinocyte viability and promoting wound healing
- Recruitment of stem cells in adipocytes and improving fat tissue
FAQs about Profhilo®
How does Profhilo® differ from other Dermal Filler products?
PROFHILO® works very differently because it is made of 100% hyaluronic acid , while dermal fillers have other components. Because it is made of a completely natural skin substance, it blends into our skin seamlessly and distributes itself evenly.
Can Profhilo be used with other treatments?
Yes! PROFHILO® delivers great results as a treatment on its own or in combination with other aesthetics treatments.
For lifting: PROFHILO® can be safely combined with energy-based device such as Ultherapy for more permanent skin tightening that lasts up to a year.
For loss of volume: PROFHILO® can be combined with fillers to plump up sunken areas for a more youthful look. The two treatments work in synergy to improve the appearance – fillers will replace lost volume, while PROFHILO® finishes the job by stimulating collagen and elastin and restoring hydration.
For improvement in scars and discolouration: PROFHILO® also works well with Laser Peels for the improvements of scars and skin discolouration.
How much downtime is there after treatments?
There is no downtime necessary, and most patients can return to their usual routine immediately after treatment.
