Profhilo is an injectable treatment containing hyaluronic acid that stimulates collagen and elastin and helps to improve the quality of tissue. Profhilo is the first BDDE-free stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid based product for treating laxity and promoting hydration into the skin. With one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid it is not only a booster and hydrator for the skin but also works to help improve the appearance of ageing skin.
A unique product, halfway between skin booster and filler. The gel-like formula spreads beneath the skin stimulating collagen and elastin and provides an instant, smoother, glowing skin. The results are noticeable almost immediately.
Those with ageing skin or looking to boost skin hydration and improve elasticity.
The treatment stimulates collagen and elastin in the skin to counteract the signs of ageing. It helps to restore the skin’s laxity, firmness, and hydration.
The treatment is pure hyaluronic acid which when precisely injected into the skin stimulates collagen and elastin by attracting water in the deeper layers of the skin. As a stabilised product, the activity on dermal cells will last longer than a non-stabilised gel. Profhilo works in the skin for up to 28 days, during this time, the stimulation of 4 different types of collagen and elastin takes place by the slow release of hyaluronic acid, this stimulation results in significant tissue improvement.
Profhilo is right for anyone looking to rejuvenate the overall appearance of their skin by adding volume, firmness, and hydration all over and not just localised areas.
Treatment time takes about 30 minutes.
Patients may experience mild stinging when the injection is being inserted. A topical anaesthetic cream may me applied to localised areas to improve patient comfort during the procedure.
A single course of Profhilo involves two treatments four weeks apart.
