Profhilo® is a completely new product, introduced by Aesthetics of Liverpool. It uses patented technologies engineered for ‘skin remodelling’. It is made from Hyaluronic Acid® like many dermal fillers however rather than filling lines, Profhilo® is designed to promote collagen and elastin growth to reduce skin laxity.
Thanks to the unique characteristics of Profhilo®, improving skin laxity is easily obtained in only two Profhilo® Sessions, with a 1 month interval, and only 5 injection points on each side of the face. Profhilo® is suitable for practically anyone, men and women, from 30 years old and with no upper age limit.
Profhilo® is the first BDDE-free stabilised injectable Hyaluronic Acid® (HA) based product for treating skin laxity.
With one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market (64mg / 2ml) Profhilo® is not only boosting and hydrating the skin, but Profhilo® also remodels the ageing and sagging tissue. 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.
Profhilo® is licenced as a Medical device and has a European CE Mark. The treatment is temporary as the Hyaluronic Acid® is completely broken down within the skin leaving no trace.
Profhilo delivers great results as a treatment on its own or in combination with other aesthetics treatments currently on offer.
Treated areas shouldn’t be reinjected with any other products within 2 weeks of the initial procedure.
Botulinum toxi should be injected two weeks prior or 2 weeks after a Profhilo reatment
Microdermabrasion, chemical peel and IPL can be performed 2 weeks pre or post treatment
Fractional resurfacing 3–4 weeks distant
Profhilo treatment should is not recomended in the immediate period following other routine medical procedures (including vaccination). For dental procedures we recomended leaving at least 2 weeks pre or post Profhilo treatment.
During the treatment we inject the product using very fine needles in five specific points on the face that Profhilo call the Bio Aesthetic Points (BAPs).
The BAP technique is seen as the optimum method for placement of the HA. It allows the treatment to be effective and simple, reducing the chance of pain, bruising or haematoma at the injection site.
Once injected, the product immediately starts spreading due to the high concentration of HA and its cohesive nature.
It flows and distributes itself evenly, rather than remaining where it is placed, naturally and without resistance integrating within your skin’s existing tissue.
You should notice the results of the treatment – increased firmness, elasticity and an overall improved quality of your skin for around six months.
However, other factors can affect the results, such as your age, your lifestyle and your skin’s natural ageing process.
For most patients, we recommend an initial course of two treatment sessions, with an interval of one month between sessions.
We then recommend top-up and maintenance sessions, approximately every six months depending on your body’s response to the initial treatment.
Redness, itching, discolouration and tenderness at the injection site may be seen but these should be mild and usualy fade quickly.
Bruising can occur and may last several days sometimes a bit longer.
Profhilo® is suitable for anyone who is looking for treatment for the signs of ageing skin.
