Profhilo

What is Profhilo and How is it Different from Dermal Filler?

While Profhilo is based on pure hyaluronic acid technology, it is not accurate to call it a filler. Profhilo is a patented product manufactured by the world’s leading medical producers of hyaluronic acid.  Thanks to its unique characteristics, PROFHILO® provides a new tool to combat facial skin ageing, the only product to stimulate all four types of collagen and elastin through bioremodeling, which is the ability to act on skin laxity.  Bioremodeling differs from traditional biorejuvenation for three main reasons:

 

  • → Reduced number of injection points

  • → Less time needed for each treatment session

  • → Immediate results sustained longer over time.

 

 

 

Profhilo is an excellent option for the earlier prevention of lines, wrinkles, and loss of volume.   Areas that can be treated:

 

  • → Full Face

  • → Neck

  • → Décolletage

  • → Upper Arms

  • → Hands

 

 

 

Results

Profhilos dual action of supporting and hydrating restores the harmony of facial balance with a long lasting effect. Patients can expect increased firmness, elasticity and an overall improvement of fine lines, wrinkles, folds and skin.  It is currently the only product capable of stimulating your natural production of all four types of collagen and elastin – those vital substances which are lost from the skin as we age.  It can effectively cure certain kinds of wrinkles from within the skin, by boosting and utilising your natural processes.

 

The long term filling effect of Profhilo, therefore, is not caused by a foreign body reaction but is stimulated by the natural production of the different collagen types within your skin. Unlike fillers, Profhilo does not remain where it is placed until it naturally degrades, Profhilo interacts with your tissue and causes it to regenerate.

 

  • → Stimulates the production of all four types of collagen and elastin in the skin (the only product that can do this!)

  • → Improves skin tone, texture, hydration and radiance

  • → Increases firmness and elasticity– for healthier, softer skin with more ‘bounce’

  • → Increases facial fullness, with a tightening and lifting effect

 

 

 

 

 

Procedure

A specialised technique called BAP Aesthetic Point is used for Profhilo whereby 5 injection sites on each side of the face are placed in such a way as to maximise the ‘spreadability’ of the product.  This gives an overall improvement in the appearance of the face, with increased firmness, elasticity, and brightness of the skin, reducing the most superficial wrinkles to the deep nasolabial folds.

 

 

Recommended Treatments

 

  • → T0: First treatment

  • → T1: second treatment 1 month after the first treatment

  • → T2: control + third maintenance treatment 2 months after the second treatment

 

 

 

It is recommended to repeat this protocol two times per year.

With this new technique we have therefore; reduced and spaced the number of sessions (monthly instead of weekly, as in traditional bio-stimulation), diminished the pain symptoms and the onset of complications such as bruising and hematomas, resulting in greater comfort and better patient compliance.

 

 

 

Does it hurt?

The product flows and distributes itself evenly, integrating within you skin’s tissue without resistance (rather than remaining where it is placed); this makes it naturally a much less painful procedure than dermal fillers. While most dermal fillers contain local anaesthetic such as lidocaine to assist in a pain-free procedure, no such anaesthetic is required for Profhilo injections. However, we choose to numb Profhilo injection sites with high quality topical anaesthetic cream for maximum comfort.
