Profhilo in Surrey

Profhilo is a pure hyaluronic acid for treating skin laxity and improving skin health. Profhilo is not a volumising dermal filler. It is also not mesotherapy. Profhilo is a SuperSkinBooster since it results in fantastic hydration and also triggers collagen and elastin production, resulting in bio-remodelling of the skin and hence dramatically improves the quality of the skin.

It can effectively cure wrinkles, by boosting the natural production of four different types of collagen and elastin from within the skin. Rather than remaining where it is placed until it naturally degrades, Profhilo interacts with your tissue and causes it to regenerate. Hence, Profhilo is perhaps best described as a ‘bio-rejuvenator’, ‘bio-revitaliser’ or ‘tissue-stimulator’.

Profhilo offers a weightless Hydrolift effect. It is complementary to other hyaluronic acid fillers and many other treatments.

How does Profhilo work?

Profhilo has high “spreadability” and cohesivity (ability to stay together). This means that the product can flow freely through the dermis and subcutaneous tissues in a way that traditional hyaluronic acid fillers cannot. These qualities are very effective in areas that are difficult to treat with traditional injectable products. These areas are the temples, forehead, hands, inner arms and neck to mention a few.

How is it made?

Hyaluronic acid fillers are typically stabilised by crosslinking with 1,4-butanediol diglycidyl ether (BDDE), to confer longevity. Otherwise, they would broke down and eliminate within a week or two of injection.

The science behind Profhilo is fascinating. Prof. Chiara Schiraldi and Prof. Mario de Rosa developed the technology at the Second University of Naples. It is the first stabilised hyaluronic acid based product without the use of chemical cross-linking agents (BDDE). During the process, low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid bond together using a patented completely chemical-free, thermal process that confers structural and rheologic stability.

How much hyaluronic acid is available?

Profhilo is available in one formulation – 64mg of hyaluronic acid in a 2ml pre-filled syringe (32mg of high molecular weight hyaluronic acid + 32mg of low molecular weight hyaluronic acid).

Owing to this new technology it was possible to combine 32mg of low molecular weight hyaluronic acid (80 – 100 KDa) and 32mg of high molecular weight hyaluronic acid (1100 – 1400 KDa) while maintaining complete manageability. It results in a total concentration of 64mg of hyaluronic acid which has never been achieved before precisely because of technological limitations. This process does not involve the use of chemical cross-linking agents and the final product, Profhilo, is pure hyaluronic acid. The formulation of hyaluronic acid with different molecular weights contained in Profhilo means that it has a Hydrolift® Action and makes it easy to inject. Studies of Profhilo have also shown significant up-regulation of collagen and elastin production. These are an outcome by both fibroblasts and keratinocytes resulting in minimal tissue inflammation.

How do we inject Profhilo?

Dr Tailor delivers the treatment to the face using the 5-point BAP (Bio Aesthetic Points) technique, the optimum method for placement of the product. We use the 5 injection points on each side of the face, away from major vessels, nerves etc. in such a way as to maximise the ‘spreadability’ of the product through diffuse regions of the cheek and jawline.

The product flows and distributes itself evenly. Moreover, it is integrating within your skin’s tissue without resistance (rather than remaining at the same place). Therefore, this makes it naturally a much less painful procedure than dermal fillers.

Profhilo won’t produce lumps and bumps in these or other areas. Even if we inject it as a bolus, it flows freely into the tissue and moves completely naturally and fills them evenly within 24 to 48 hours. Profhilo’s unsurpassed level of tissue integration and biocompatibility is due to its unique manufacturing process.

While most dermal fillers contain local anaesthetic such as lidocaine to assist in a pain-free procedure, we do not need to use any for Profhilo injections. We also us a minute needle which means that the skin is generally free from marks and bruises.

Does it prevent wrinkles?

It’s important to note that Profhilo is an excellent option for the earlier prevention of lines, wrinkles, and loss of volume. Beyond the teens, due to genetic or intrinsic ageing, we lose collagen and elastin from the dermis. This results in our skin becoming thinner and less elastic.

Prevention is better than cure i.e. it is best to take action sooner. Also, it is useful to prevent wrinkles from forming and becoming more entrenched. This helps to maintain the best results for longer. Moreover it means there is less need for future treatment when you maintain your good skin health.

How many treatments will you need?

Patients can expect increased elasticity and improved quality of the skin with the effects lasting six months.

We recommend two to three treatments sessions initially, with a 1-month interval in between. Afterwards, you could come back for top-ups and maintenance treatments at 6 monthly intervals.

What the potential side effects?

Transient redness, pain, itching, discolouration or tenderness at the implant site.

Who cannot have this treatment?

Individuals with a known hypersensitivity to hyaluronic acid. Also, pregnant ladies and women who breastfeed.

Is it temporary or permanent?

Hyaluronic acid completely brakes down within the skin leaving no trace.

Testimonials

"INJECTABLES – BOTOX AND FILLERS BY EMMA
"
"BOTOX & FILLERS – BENEFITS TO BE OUTSIDE OF LONDON I just moved to Farnham from London and I was concerned that I would not have local access to the newest and highest quality treatments as I did in London. In fact, I now benefit from equal, if not better treatments that are much more professionally administered. I have never had such good results with both filler and botox as I have had with Dr. Rekha Tailor. Susan (57)"
"EXCELLENT SERVICE AND RESULTS Can’t recommend Dr T enough, I walk in asking for help with saggy bits and lost volume and she takes one very experienced look at me, and declares what needs to be done. Which we do and I’m thrilled with the results. She does little and often, and you are completely involved in your consultation, although I completely trust her recommendations. Dr T is honest and forthcoming and she is always striving to update herself on all the latest developments, which we get to hear about. There are never any ‘over the top’ results and the best part is when your friends comment on how good you look and isn’t your skin great, that’s exactly what I want to hear! You’ll put yourself in safe hands with Dr T and her team. Vikki (47)"
"DERMAL FILLERS: I CANNOT RECOMMEND THEM HIGHLY ENOUGH! I was concerned that my face was looking gaunt. With the amount of triathlon training I’ve been doing, the natural fat in my face had disappeared, ageing me. Dr Tailor suggested a small amount of Dermal Fillers in my face to help raise my cheeks. I was a little apprehensive at first, but her calm and reassuring manner put me at ease. I have to say that I’m really pleased with the results, and no-one says I look gaunt! The staff are very professional and welcoming. I cannot recommend them highly enough! James (40)"
"DERMAL FILLERS, COSMETIC INJECTABLES So happy, I’m amazed how the change has made me feel happier about myself when I look in the mirror. Thanks Rekha for the fantastic treatment! Rena (43)"
"INJECTABLES AND FIRST CONSULTATION I have been to various clinics for facial treatments, not once has any clinician sat down with me and explained the treatments in depth, explained the reasons why skin/bone structure changes over time, and advised ME as an individual what the best treatments would be for me and in what order. A thorough skin analysis was carried out and explained, as well as further information for me to read through and decide what I would like to go ahead with, without being pushed towards a certain treatment at the time. I would advise anyone thinking about skin treatments, facial fillers, Botox to have a consultation with Dr Tailor, very informative and interesting. Female patient (42)"
