what is Profhilo?
Profhilo® is a revolutionary 'beneath the skin' hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment, made with the patented NAHYCO® technology. This results in a unique hyaluronic acid injectable gel, which has a prolonged stimulating activity on the dermal cells. When injected into skin, Profhilo® stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity and improve and restore firmness of the skin.
One of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market, Profhilo® not only boosts and hydrates the skin, but also remodels ageing and sagging tissue. The most common areas of treatment include the face and neck and can also be used for the décolletage, hands, arms, knees and abdomen area where it would effectively treat skin laxity. The treatment is suitable for men and women as well as offering skin benefits for patients of all ages.
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 just a skin booster as it also has a significant tightening / lifting effect on the tissue.
After injection into the skin, Profhilo starts to work immediately.
Its unique structure allows it to flow freely through the subcutaneous tissue and dermis in the target areas, creating volume evenly over the following 24 to 48 hours.
This gives Profhilo a significant advantage over other filler treatments, as the product doesn’t form into lumps or nodules that need to be massaged to help create the desired result.
how long does it take to see results?
The product remains in the skin for about 28 days, in which time it continues to stimulate the production collagen and elastin by slowly releasing the HA.
This creates both a ‘dermal scaffold’ that tightens and lifts the skin, while also boosting skin tissue quality through HA’s hydrating and stimulating action.
We recommend you have 2 Profhilo treatments, 4 weeks apart. The improvements to the quality of your skin, and the lifting and tightening effect, develop subtly over several weeks.
While you may see an improvement immediately after the first treatment, the best results are visible around 4 weeks after the second treatment.
After 8 weeks, your skin will appear more hydrated, healthy and youthful.
