What is Profhilo treatment?
Profhilo is an injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) based product which is used to combat loose, lax skin. It stimulates collagen and elastin in the skin over the four weeks following the treatment. This results in significant tissue improvement, giving the skin a tightening and lifting effect.
Profhilo is stabilized by using a patented technology resulting in hybrid cooperative complexes between high molecular weight HA and low molecular HA without the use of any chemical cross-linking compounds. These complexes increase the stability of HA to enzymatic and mechanical degradation.
How does it work?
Profhilo contains hyaluronic acid (the substance in the human body which maintains moisture levels in our skin), which increases the production of elastin and collagen. This means it rehydrates the skin and helps to give volume and brightness to it.
The substance is injected just below the skin’s surface in just two sessions over a period of four weeks, and disperses quickly across the skin to instantly boost hydration, and consequently smooth fine lines and wrinkles, giving an overall improved skin texture.
In Profhilo treatments, L-HA is released slowly from the HA hybrid complexes and therefore does not trigger the first inflammatory cytokines, making it very bio-compatible. It also increases patient comfort during and after treatment and provides hydration to the skin especially in the epidermis - something known as the Hydro effect. H-HA in Profhilo provides a stable HA architecture in the dermis. This gives a volumetric result known as the Lift effect.
Procredure time is 30 minutes and requires a local anaesthetic.
Results usually last 12-18 months.
It's a safe and effective treatment with little or no downtime.
Not suitable if you're pregnant or breastfeeding. Have auto-immune diseases, hypersensitivity/allergy to hyaluronic acid.
