Profhilo is an exciting new injectable treatment to lift and tighten skin on the face and neck which has developed laxity as a result of ageing or sun damage. It is not a dermal filler, but a rejuvenator, interacting with skin tissue and causing it to regenerate.
Profhilo tightens and lifts the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. The tightening effect improves the area around the eyes and reduces jowls. This truly is a non-surgical facelift that works – minimally invasive with little or no downtime – and because it contains only Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a naturally occurring product in the skin, carries no risk of allergic reaction and is ideal for patients concerned about using synthetic chemicals.
The Profhilo non-invasive facelift
Profhilo acts on the skin to promote rejuvenating effects, not only boosting and hydrating but also rejuvenating skin which is starting to sag. It stimulates collagen and elastin production to result in significant improvements tightness and elasticity. Unlike dermal fillers it does not simply remain and replace lost volume, but actually works with the tissues to cause them to regenerate, improving the skin’s quality, tightness and texture for a more youthful look.
Profhilo spreads freely within the skin tissue, and moves to fill around the injected areas, giving an even and natural effect with 24-48 hours. This natural ‘flow’, as well as the tiny needle used, makes it much less uncomfortable than dermal fillers and means that there will be no lumps or bumps. Profhilo is so pain-free that, unlike fillers, no local anaesthetic is needed.
Profhilo is free from BDDE
Conventional dermal fillers using HA normally also include butanediol diglycidyl ether (BDDE), to prevent them from being broken down and eliminated too quickly. Profhilo is the first stabilised Hyaluronic Acid-based product without BDDE, and with one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market, uses a patented chemical-free process which naturally integrates with, stimulates and stabilises the skin.
Because it works naturally with the skin tissue to tighten and firm it, Profhilo is also ideal for ‘problem areas’ which can’t be treated effectively with dermal fillers. These are typically areas where skin becomes thin and lax but where there is little underlying volume to be lost – such as the décolletage area, the hands or arms.
Prevent and reduce wrinkles, sagging skin and loss of volume in the face
Prevention is better than cure. Profhilo is one of the best non-invasive skin treatments for reducing existing wrinkles, and its effectiveness is increased when it is used early to prevent lines from forming as skin begins to lose collagen and elastin to retain a youthful look for longer.
At Health & Aesthetics, we recommend two to three Profhilo treatments initially – with a 1-month interval between them, followed by a maintenance treatment once every 6 months.
