Why Profhilo®?

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 (64mg / 2ml) it is not only amazing at boosting and hydrating the skin but it is also one of the most effective products out there for remodelling the aging and sagging tissue.

The injectable intensely replenishes and hydrates the skin, revealing a youthful complexion and tone. Profhilo® works right at the root cause of the problem – stimulating collagen and elastin production and increasing the elasticity of your skin.

The Profhilo® is injected just below the skin’s surface in only 2 sessions over a period of 4 weeks. It disperses quickly to boost and instantly hydrate your skin, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles and resulting in improved skin texture.

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 the slow release of hyaluronic acid.

The stimulation results in significant tissue improvement and tightening/lifting effect of the skin tissue.

Aftercare

  • Avoid strenuous exercise or excessive sun exposure, for at least 48 hours post-treatment or until any swelling subsides.
  • Avoid make-up for 24 hours to injected areas. If you must use this, please apply the iConceal or Oxygenetix medical foundation as it encourages the healing process.
  • Avoid firm rubbing of the treated area for 5 days.
  • Avoid aspirin, St John’s Wort or Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatories eg Ibuprofen, for a few days post-treatment. If you require such medication for medical reasons, please check with your doctor before stopping.

Please note, the above aftercare is just a guide. Full aftercare advice will be given to you when you attend your appointment with us.

Why choose Profhilo®?

  • It’s biocompatible: Because it’s composed of a highly pure grade hyaluronic acid.
  • It’s secure: Due to its high purity and absence of additives, Profhilo® offers greater safety and therefore reduced side effects.
  • It’s effective: The patented technology of Profhilo® offers a prolonged duration.
  • The composition: It’s unique with 64mg of hyaluronic acid, and the result of patented technology.
  • The injection technique: Only 5 points of injection areas are needed to offer a maximum comfort treatment.
  • The treatment protocol: Visible results after only 2 sessions (1 month).

How many treatments are needed?

Two treatments sessions are usually recommended initially, with a 4-week interval in between. Maintenance treatments can then be prescribed by our doctors according to your body’s response to treatment. Although for the neck, the second visit after one month may not be needed in mild to moderate ageing.

Is there any downtime or side effects?

With the technique used for this product, firm massage is not advised after placement of the product under the skin. It is better to allow the product to spread naturally, so it is usual for patients to leave with small pea-sized lumps for some hours after treatment. Often, this will only be the case at some sites. By the next day, the skin appearance is usually back to normal. There is naturally a small risk of bruising which is usually minimal and can be covered with concealer.

How long do the benefits last?

The amount of time the filler takes to break down varies from person to person depending on the volume, type and location of filler injected, as well as the natural levels of hyaluronidase in the body. Generally, Profhilo® fillers will last for around six months, though optimum results can vary from around three to eighteen months.

What exactly is Hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance found in the body that helps to hydrate and add volume to our skin. Natural hyaluronic acid is broken down by the body in 1 or 2 days so it is constantly replaced—as we age this replacement mechanism diminishes so the moisturising and plumping effects of hyaluronic acid decrease. Hyaluronic acid is used for aesthetic treatments but is also used by doctors for injection into arthritic joints to aid movement, as well as eye surgery.

Is there anything I need to know before I have treatment?

We advise you to avoid alcohol, aspirin, Ibuprofen, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and a range of dietary supplements including : Multivitamins like C and E- may all contribute to bruising and are best avoided 24 hours before treatment (unless they are taken for chronic medical conditions). All make up will need to be removed prior to treatment, so please come ‘fresh faced’ if possible.

Treatment cannot be administered if there is an active skin infection, including cold sores etc. Do contact the clinic to discuss any illness or new medicines prior to attending. Ask your medical practitioner if you have any concerns.

Is this a temporary or permanent treatment?

Hyaluronic acid can be completely dissolved. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally, and the levels of HA in the body are balanced by an enzyme known as hyaluronidase, which breaks down the hyaluronic acid molecules.

PROFHILO® containing low & high molecular weight hyaluronic acid, is a Class III medical device for the treatment of the face and body for contours redefinition and laxity remodelling where skin laxity is a problem.
