Profhilo® – Skin Laxity TreatmentProfhilo® is a revolutionary 'beneath the skin' hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment.
Profhilo treatment is a true breakthrough in anti-ageing treatments thanks to its intense hydrating capabilities. Profhilo is in between a skin booster and filler which delivers hyaluronic acid via a small syringe superficially into the skin. The gel like formula spreads beneath the skin like honey, stimulating collagen and elastin and provides an instant, smoother, glowing skin.
Profhilo treatment can help to:
- Increase skin firmness and elasticity
- Tighten and lift skin
- Improve skin tone and texture
- Rehydrated skin
- Restore radiance
Profhilo is a Hyaluronic acid based product which opens up a new category of injectable treatments – bio remodelling – the highest concentrations of Hyaluronic acid on the market.
This means it promotes two distinct effects in the treatment area; a bio regenerating action which stimulates the body's own Hyaluronic acid production and elastin; and a tightening effect counteracting skin laxity and remodelling the face.
How does Profhilo work?
Ultra-pure hyaluronic acid is precisely injected into the area being treated. Unlike wrinkle reducing and dermal filler treatments, Profhilo stimulates collagen and elastin, attracting water in the deeper layers of the skin.
As a stabilised product, the activity on dermal cells will last longer than that of a non-stabilised gel. During this time the stimulation of four different types of collagen and elastin takes place by slow release of hyaluronic acid.
The stimulation results in significant tissue improvement. Therefore we cannot say that Profhilo is a skin booster as it also has a significant tightening / lifting effect on the tissue.
Profhilo® works in a course of 2 or 3 treatments, 4 weeks apart. On the face, only 5 injection points are necessary on each side of the face to give maximum results.
Profhilo® acts as a hydrator rather than a filler. It is injected just under the surface of the skin, where it disperses quickly (due to the lack of BDDE cross-linking agent) and reacts with your own tissues to instantly boost hydration. Over the following 4 weeks, phase 2 will boost collagen and elastin production within the dermis. This helps to give the skin a youthful, plump, smooth and firm appearance.
There are no long-term side-effects with Profhilo® as it is metabolised by the body completely. The risk of any allergic reaction is substantially reduced due to the lack of any synthetic chemicals such as BDDE.
Some people can experience some redness, slight bruising, tenderness and possible itching at the injection sites, but these will subside in a few hours to a day and is totally natural.
There is no downtime with Profhilo®. However, it’s advisable to avoid alcohol, aspirin or anti-inflammatory medication in the 24 hours prior to the treatment. Vitamin C and Vitamin E can also increase the likelihood of bruising, but it is fine to use 48 hours after.
Immediately afterwards, it’s important to avoid wearing make-up and strenuous exercise such as going to the gym, swimming or extreme sports and hot steam rooms and saunas for at least 24 hours.
