Profhilo

PROFHILO is considered to be safe, clean, effective and “a true breakthrough” in anti-ageing medicine.

If you are new to cosmetic treatments and want to achieve more subtle look than fillers, PROFHILO may be the best treatment to improve and maintain the quality of your skin.
PROFHILO is considered to be safe, clean, effective and “a true breakthrough” in anti-ageing medicine.
Aging and other skin conditions occur as a result of the significant decrease in the skin’s production of collagen and elastin. Thus, one way to combat skin conditions is to make use of treatments that encourage the production of collagen and elastin.
PROFHILO is not a filler, but a Hyaluronic Acid gel with innovative bio-remodelling properties. It generates four types of collagen and elastin along with it, thus making it an effective treatment for skin laxity. It sorts out the dehydration problem while restoring the skin’s natural glow.
PROFHILO helps with skin repair and rejuvenation, lifts and gives your face a defined look, eliminates fine lines, expression lines, and wrinkles, and straightens the skin while getting rid of wrinkles and sagging skin.
Just two sessions are required one month apart to experience the benefits of PROFHILO on your skin as, depending on skin type, you can begin to see its effect after one or two days. Others might not see the effect until about a week later or more. However, the best results are normally 8 weeks after the first session.

FAQ

Profhilo is the first BDDE-free stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) based product for treating skin laxity. With one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market, it is not only boosting and hydrating the skin, but also remodels the ageing and sagging tissue. Profhilo delivers great results as a treatment on its own or in combination with other aesthetics treatments currently on offer.

As a stabilised product Profhilo lasts in the skin around 28 days. During this time the stimulation of 4 different types of collagen and elastin takes place by slow release of HA. The stimulation results in significant tissue improvement. Perhaps it is best-described as a ‘bio-rejuvenator’, ‘bio-revitaliser’ or ‘tissue-stimulator’ and these terms are catching on as aesthetic medicine moves in a new direction.

Profhilo® is capable of stimulating your natural production of all four types of collagen and elastin – these vital substances which are lost from the skin as we age. It has been reported that from the age of about twenty, each year we lose around 1% of the collagen and elastin from our skin tissue. 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’. So it is accurate to say that it can effectively cure certain kinds of wrinkles from within the skin, by boosting and utilising your natural processes giving the skin a more youthful look. It provides hydration to the skin especially in the epidermis (the Hydro effect).

We will discuss what your concerns are and what you want to achieve and ask any questions you have.
I will then assess your face, take some photos before the procedure.
Makeup is removed and the area is cleansed.
I will inject the product using very fine needles in five specific points on the face that Profhilo call the Bio Aesthetic Points (BAPs). You will be given numbing cream to ease the discomfort.
The BAP technique is seen as the optimum method for placement of the HA for the lower face. It allows the treatment to be effective and simple, reducing the chance of pain, bruising or haematoma at the injection site.
Once injected, the product immediately starts spreading due to the high concentration of HA and its cohesive nature. It flows and distributes itself evenly, rather than remaining where it is placed, naturally and without resistance integrating within your skin’s existing tissue.

Not painful but can be slightly uncomfortable.

Profhilo® is especially effective at treating loose skin in the face, neck and jowls as well as other areas usually considered difficult to treat with injectable products, such as hands & upper arms.

There is no recovery time for Profhilo as such however, the product is injected in small deposits, you may be able to see them initially but they settle usually within hours. It may be possible to feel the product where it has been injected under the skin. It will settle and there is no need to massage. You will be provided with Aftercare information.

Side effects will only be mild and redness that appear for some time such as erythema (redness), pain, itching, discolouration or tenderness at the injection site.

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.

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.
