What is Profhilo?
PROFHILO® is the first bio-remodelling “injectable skincare” made from stabilized pure Hyaluronic Acid (HA). It is designed to remodel multi-layer skin tissue through the bio-stimulation of collagen, elastin and adipocytes. It represents a new anti-aging approach with innovative technology that targets skin from the inside out.
What are the benefits of PROFHILO®?
- Improves hydration by 20%
- Softening of lines and wrinkles.
- Reverses signs of aging by increasing collagen and elastin in the skin
- Improves the complexion of the skin
- Provides firming, tightening and lifting effect to the skin.
- Repairs acne scars.
- 8x more lasting than non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid
- Fast and effective treatment with minimal pain and downtime.
How does PROFHILO® work?
Hyaluronic acid fillers have an affinity for water and will retain up to 1,000 times their weight in water.
PROFHILO® contains both high molecular weight (HMW) and low molecular weight (LMW) HA which generates a dual-action – incorporating hydration and tissue stimulation from the LMW, referred to as the HYDRO effect, alongside dermal scaffold support from the HMW, referred to as the LIFT effect. Together, this is known as the HydroLift® Action.
An important characteristic due to the high cohesivity of PROFHILO® is its optimal tissue integration capacity.
PROFHILO® is notable for its ability to flow uniformly through entire anatomic units after injection and can therefore homogeneously expand in fat compartments in challenging areas where even low viscosity fillers may produce contour irregularities.
Who is suitable for PROFHILO® treatment?
This treatment is suitable for both women and men who have mild to moderate skin laxity concerns, and for individuals who wish to improve the hydration and texture of their skin.
How is PROFHILO® treatment performed?
Topical anaesthesia will be applied before the injections to ensure comfort. After cleaning your skin, you will receive 5 intradermal injections on each side of the cheeks using the standard Bio Aesthetic Points (BAP) injection technique. However, site and number of injection points may sometimes vary between individuals for a customized approach to treatment.
How many treatments are needed?
You will need to undergo 2 to 3 treatments spaced one month apart. Treatments should be repeated every 6 months subsequently for maintenance.
What is the downtime of a PROFHILO® treatment?
After the procedure, you will notice small bumps on the skin. These bumps will usually disappear after 1-2 days.
Are patients satisfied after PROFHILO® treatment?
According to a study1, PROFHILO®’s tightening action has a positive effect on facial volume. 70% of subjects show an improvement of at least one grade according to the FVLS (Facial Volume Loss Scale)
Subjects also shows significant improvement in skin hydration after only one treatment and in skin elasticity after two treatments.2
Satisfaction rates of both doctors and patients are high, especially after the second treatment.3
