What does Profhilo do?
Stimulates production of all four types of collagen and elastin in the skin
Improves skin tone, texture, hydration and radiance
Increases firmness and elasticity – for healthier, softer skin with more ‘bounce’
Increases facial fullness, with a tightening and lifting effect
Profhilo is the first injectable, hyaluronic acid-based product for treating skin laxity, which nourishes the dermal cells and restores firmness to the skin. With one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market (64mg / 2ml), it is not only boosting and hydrating the skin, but it also remodels the ageing and sagging tissue.
Whilst Profhilo is a hyaluronic acid, it is not a filler. Unlike regular dermal fillers, it treats loose skin and improves sagging by tightening wrinkles rather than just filling them. This product does not add volume to the skin as regular dermal fillers do. Instead of plumping up the skin, it restores the body’s natural hyaluronic acid, leaving the skin looking tighter and rejuvenated.
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 hyaluronic acid, and it is this stimulation that results in significant improvement of tissue quality. The aesthetic results of the treatment last for approximately 6 months.
Profhilo can be used as a standalone treatment or in combination with Botox, fillers and Silhouette Soft Threads for a more significant result.
