Profhilo skin remodelling
Profhilo is a new development in the treatment of skin laxity using hyaluronic acid (HA) injections.
It is currently the only product available that stimulates the production of the essential substances lost from our skin as we age and which result in skin laxity and other signs of ageing.
Profhilo is especially effective at treating loose skin in the cheek and jowls as well as other areas usually considered difficult to treat with injectable products, such as the:
- inner arms and
As an injectable product, Profhilo is based on hyaluronic acid (HA) – the same substance used in dermal fillers. However, Profhilo is not a filler.
After injection, it only remains in place for a relatively short time (up to 28 days). It is then fully, naturally and safely broken down by the body and eliminated. While in place, it stimulates and significantly improves the body’s existing, natural processes for regenerating skin tissue.
What treatments is Profhilo used for?
Profhilo is an excellent option for the early prevention of lines, wrinkles and loss of volume.
From the age of about twenty, each year we lose around 1% of the collagen and elastin from our skin tissue. Collagen and elastin are the building blocks that give the skin its plumped-up, healthy appearance. As a result of this gradual depletion, the skin becomes thinner and as the time goes by it has less and less of its youthful ‘bounce’. Prevention, of course, is always better than cure. So taking action early helps to keep lines, wrinkles and loose skin from forming too soon, and may help treatment results to last longer. And by maintaining good skin health, it also means you’re likely to need fewer treatments in the future.
Profhilo the bio rejuvenator.
As the only skin remodelling product to hydrate the skin as well as stimulate all four types of collagen and elastin, Profhilo may also be described as a ‘bio-rejuvenator’ or ‘bio- revitaliser’.
The patented technology behind Profhilo allows it to maintain its stability without the use of chemicals (BDDE cross-linking agents) found in other HA-based products. This reduces the chance of side effects. Profhilo also has one of the highest concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid for any product on the market (64mg / 2ml).
How long do the results last?
You should notice the results of the treatment – increased firmness, elasticity and an overall improved quality of your skin – lasting around six months.
However, other factors can affect the results, including the degree of correction needed, your age and lifestyle and your skin’s natural ageing process.
How many treatments will I need?
For most patients, we recommend an initial course of two treatment sessions, with an interval of one month between sessions.
We may then recommend top-up and maintenance sessions, depending on your body’s response to the initial treatment.
