What makes Profhilo unique?

Profhilo is not a dermal filler or bio-revitaliser – Profhilo has opened up a new injectable category; bio-remodelling.

The product’s thermal cross-linking changes the hyaluronic acid’s character and behaviour, supporting the skin and underlying tissue. One of the main advantages of Profhilo is longevity. The hybrid cooperative complexes of the product have proven to be very stable, resulting in the dual action of the main components. This double action is ideal for improving skin laxity.
