What is Profhilo?
Profhilo is an injectable skin treatment that contains one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid (HA) on the market. It is specially formulated for those whose skin lacks hydration and elasticity.
HA is hydrophilic so it attracts and holds the water together in the body, acting as a hydrator. This is great news for those with dry or dull-looking skin.
Profhilo is composed of a hybrid of H-HA and L-HA, different molecular weights of HA that give it a synergistic effect. The high molecular weight H-HA protects the skin’s integrity and enables lifting while the low molecular weight L-HA hydrates the skin with its hydrophilic properties.
The slow release of HA will stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, thus helping to improve wrinkles, fine lines, skin tone and hydration. With the help of Profhilo, you can have luminous skin that looks healthy and young.
