What is Profhilo?

PROFHILO is a highly purified stabilized hyaluronic acid of non animal origin, but without any chemical cross linking agents. It is the first ever organic injectable. The concentration of hyaluronan in one syringe is 64mg in 2 ml.

PROFHILO is not a dermal filler. It fits in between skin boosters and fillers. As a booster it offers fantastic hydration and as a filler it triggers collagen and elastin production.

How Does Profhilo Work?

Profhilo is a pure hyaluronic gel injection which stimulates 4 different types of collagen and elastin. The results last 6-9 months. HA is a hydrophilic, which means it draws and holds water from your body, so profhilo acts as a hydrator rather than a filler. The effect takes place within 3-5 days of a treatment.

Two treatments are highly recommended to get maximum results. The treatments are spaced 4-5 weeks apart. The maximum effect of Profhilo is usually seen 2 months after the second treatment.

What do Profhilo Treatments Involve?

Profhilo comes in a 2mls syringe treatment and takes 20 minutes.

Face Treatments

One ml is injected into 5 injection points on each side of the face. Profhilo is injected just below the skins surface. After injection it disperses quickly beneath the skin to improve hydration. Profhilo is absorbed within a 2 cm radius of its injection site. There is no bruising, swelling or downtime. You may have some redness at the injection sites for a few hours.

Neck Treatments

Two mls are injected into your neck, targeting the areas where the skin is the thinnest and where you have the most lines. Treatment takes 20 minutes. Allow 24 hours downtime for neck treatments. This is because your neck skin is so thin and delicate, you will have raised areas at each injection site on your neck. You might get a tiny bruise at one or two of the injection sites which can be covered easily with concealer.

The neck rejuvenation is amazing but is not going to permanently tighten or lift your neck like neck surgery would.

Benefits of Profhilo

A single course of Profhilo consists of 2 injectable treatments four weeks apart, after which you can expect to see intense hydration. It makes the skin glow, fine lines disappear and you’ll notice smoother, tighter skin. Courses of two treatments can be repeated every six months or as needed to maintain results. Patients with very dry mature skin may require 3 treatments to get their desired results.
