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.

FAQ

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

TESTIMONIALS

BOTOX & FILLERS - BENEFITS TO BE OUTSIDE OF LONDONI 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) INJECTABLES - BENEFITS TO BE OUTSIDE OF LONDON - Susan (57)

She gave a new insight into how my face can be refreshed without going down my usual Botox & Tear Trough route & it certainly worked!!! She's incredibly engaging & has now put together a proper skin plan for me, & again for me to go away & have a read rather than being forced into anything.
