Profhilo® is an injectable treatment containing one of the highest concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) that exists on the market. It is known as a skin remodelling treatment and is specially formulated for people who lack volume and elasticity.
Rather than plumping and filling wrinkles like Dermal Fillers, the slow release of Hyaluronic Acid stimulates the production of collagen and elastin which results in improved skin tone, texture, hydration, and appearance of fine lines.
This treatment is not a replacement for existing wrinkle injection treatments, however can be used in combination with other injectables such as Botox® and Dermal Fillers or as a stand-alone treatment.
- Reduced skin elasticity and skin laxity
- Poor skin tone and texture (crepey skin)
- Dehydrated skin
- Face and neck, specific injection points
Advantages of Profhilo:
In Profhilo, Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid (L-HA) is released slowly from the HA hybrid complexes and therefore does not trigger the first inflammatory cytokines making it very biocompatible. It also increases patient comfort during and after treatment and provides hydration to the skin especially in the epidermis – the Hydro effect.
High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid (H-HA) in Profhilo provides a stable HA architecture in the dermis. This gives a volumetric effect – the Lift effect.
Another advantage of the stable co-operative hybrid complex when compared to H-HA and L-HA is the increase in the expression levels of type I and type III collagen in fibroblast and type IV and VII collagen in keratinocytes.
This results in improved skin quality and skin hydration both in the dermis and epidermis. There is also increased production of endogenous HA and elastin giving the skin a more youthful look.
