What is PROFHILO?
Profhilo is an exciting new injectable hyaluronic acid dermal fillers for treating skin laxity.
It is not only boosting and hydrating the skin, but also remodels the ageing and sagging tissue. It encourages your face and neck to create more collagen and elastin soft tissue to hydrate the skin from underneath creating a very natural result.
Profhilo delivers great results as a treatment on its own or in combination with other aesthetics treatments currently on offer. Treatment protocol starts with a a series of injections to specific points in the face 4 weeks apart
The effects can be maintained by repeating the treatment every 4 months at a cost fo £300 per treatment. It works well alongside other treatments for facial aesthetics
HOW DOES PROFHILO WORK
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 slow release of HA.
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.
There are many characteristics that make Profhilo unique from anything else available on the market right now. There is no BDDE content. It is thermally cross-linked generating stabilised hybrid co-operative complexes of H-HA and L-HA. Despite its high HA content, it has a low inflammatory profile coupled with pro-healing properties backed by clinical studies. To fully understand this new concept in anti-ageing medicine we have to take a look at the technology first.
Profhilo is not a dermal filler or biorevitaliser – Profhilo has opened up a new injectable category – bioremodeling.
Thermal cross-linking changes the character and behavior of the HA resulting in the formation of co-operative hybrid complexes which modulate the tissues. This is also the explanation for the different biological behavior with respect to H-HA and L-HA alone. One of the main advantages is longevity. Hybrid cooperative complexes have proven to be very stable with natural hyaluronidase (BTH) digestion when compared to H-HA, widely used in biorevitalisation products, or L-HA alone resulting in the long-lasting release and the dual action of the two HA components. This dual action is ideal for remodeling skin laxity.
