What is Profhilo Treatment?
Profhilo is a revolutionary 'beneath the skin' hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment which has a prolonged stimulating activity on the dermal cells. When injected into skin, Profhilo stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity and improve and restore firmness of the skin.
Profhilo is a stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid indicated for the treatment of tissue remodelling and skin laxity, free of any chemical crosslinking agents.
Anyone who presents with signs of skin ageing and is suitable for dermal filler treatment is also suitable for treatment with Profhilo.
The key to Profhilo’s popularity is a unique structure and balance of scientific properties, including a high cohesivity, that allow the product to flow freely through subcutaneous tissue and the dermis, in a way that traditional hyaluronic acid fillers cannot.
Profhilo has better active restorative capabilities than low molecular weight hyaluronic acid. However, rather than being proinflammatory, Profhilo is actually less inflammatory than even high molecular weight hyaluronic acid and also has restructuring capabilities.
How does Profhilo work?
Profhilo can be administered in a number of different ways although the most common and effective method is to
use the BAP technique. BAP stands for bio aesthetic points but what does this mean?
It basically means five areas on each side of the face are injected, while this will vary slightly depending on your face shape the positions are usually on the lower part of the face.
This is done to help reduce the number of injections needed and to allow the Profhilo treatment to more effectively fight the signs of ageing.
Areas you can treat and Benefits of Profhilo:
Areas to treat are face or neck, or both
It is particularly effective at treating areas prone to skin laxity and sagging such as the cheeks, neck, chest and décolletage.
It gives hydration, luminosity, sparkle, firmness , strength to the skin with a very potent anti-ageing effect
Profhilo Treatment Intervenes:
In the physiological process of aging tissue, in presence of alterations in elastic fibers and collagen.
In the dermal tissue repair process, in cases of acne or scars.
In case of loss or compromised adipose tissue.
Overall, patients can expect increased firmness, elasticity and an overall improved quality of skin, with the effects lasting up to six months.
Two treatments are recommended four weeks apart, with a follow-up appointment at week eight, to be repeated twice a year for optimal profhilo results.
