What is Profhilo?

Profhilo is a bio-remodelling injectable containing a special type of hyaluronic acid (HA) – the highest concentration of (HA) without the usual cross-linking. It is designed for individuals whose skin lacks hydration and elasticity. Profhilo improves fine wrinkles and gives an overall skin tightening effect by improving skin quality, as opposed to filling up specific areas which lack volume.

What are the benefits of Profhilo?

  • Bio-stimulates elastin and 4 types of collagen, improving fine wrinkles and skin firmness
  • Hydrates all 3 layers of the skin
  • Tightens and improves overall skin quality
  • Rejuvenates neck, arms, hands and knee

How does Profhilo work?

Profhilo uses a pure grade form of HA which is free from additives to give a scaffolding effect to skin tissue. Using a patented thermal cross-linked technology, Profhilo binds high and low molecular weight HA together to form complexes, which lasts for a longer period of time compared to non-crosslinked HA. Fat stem cells and fibroblasts are stimulated to bio-remodel old skin tissue and produce new collagen and elastin in the dermis for better elasticity and support.

This technology also removes the need to add synthetic cross-linking agents BDDE (1,4-butanediol diglycidyl ether) present in most cross-linked dermal fillers to enhance stability, while still giving structure for bio-remodelling to take place. Combined with the natural hydrating effects of HA, Profhilo rejuvenates the skin and restores to one a firmer, smoother and more youthful appearance.

FAQs

Injection sites are kept to just a few points each side in a Profhilo treatment, as opposed to multiple points in other skinbooster treatments. Also known as the Bio Aesthetic Points, they are areas away from major blood vessels and nerves, where Profhilo spreads easily across all 3 layers of the skin, improving the safety profile of the treatment.

For initial treatment, Profhilo should be done twice with an interval of 4 weeks, followed by a maintenance session 6 months later. For individuals with more severe laxity or who wish to see better results may do a third session before moving on to maintenance treatment.

Consisting of pure grade HA, Profhilo is free from additives which boosts its safety profile and minimises the risks of complications. After the treatment, there will be raised bumps at the sites of injection, and they should subside within 24 hours. Bruising and soreness over injection points are rare and are usually mild and temporary if they occur.

Although Profhilo and dermal fillers both contain hyaluronic acid, their biochemistry makeup is different. With a thicker consistency, dermal fillers are used to restore volume and definition to sunken or hollow areas. Profhilo has a runnier consistency and is injected more superficially compared to dermal fillers, to hydrate and bioremodel skin.

Profhilo is suitable for both genders as it gives hydrating and anti aging benefits. It does not change your facial features as it is not a dermal filler, rather, it provides an overall improvement in skin quality.

Profhilo has a watery consistency and spreads easily throughout all skin layers. Bumps should subside in about 1 day, and there is no need for a massage. Too vigorous a massage can result in unwanted inflammation around the injection sites.
