Profhilo is a unique, entirely new category of skin rejuvenating treatment that uses potent hyaluronic acid to improve hydration, enhance skin texture, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Unlike many other aesthetic treatments, Profhilo is suitable for use in a range of different areas of the skin, including the face, neck, décolletage, hands, abdomen, and upper arms. To discover whether Profhilo is right for you, let’s explore the science behind the treatment.
How does Profhilo treatment work?
Profhilo is formulated with one of the highest and most stable hyaluronic acid concentrations of any current treatment. The hyaluronic acid used within the unique Profhilo formulation has a higher molecular weight than that found in other treatment formulations, which allows it to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin for more noticeable results that last longer.
When the formulation is injected into the skin, it immediately gets to work replenishing the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid supplies. This elevates moisture levels and delivers a firmer, visibly smoother complexion. It is also formulated with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which help to treat skin damage, minimise swelling and reduce redness.
Importantly, the increased stability of Profhilo also ensures that the potent slow-release hyaluronic acid-based formulation remains in the skin for up to 28 days, during which it stimulates the body’s natural production of elastin and four different types of collagen.
The importance of elastin and collagen
Elastin and collagen play a vital role in ensuring the skin has the elasticity and ‘bounce’ we associate with a youthful complexion. The natural ageing process takes a toll on the body’s ability to produce new collagen and elastin, with production levels starting to decline when we are in our mid-20s.
How is Profhilo produced?
The hyaluronic acid within the Profhilo formulation is produced using biofermentation methods, which results in a purer, highly stable end product. Additionally, its advanced formulation does not contain synthetic BDDE and its inflammatory profile is extremely low, which minimises side effects and provides greater levels of patient comfort.
Is Profhilo a filler?
Despite being an injectable treatment, Profhilo is not filler. As the name suggests, fillers work to effectively fill in fine lines and wrinkles to restore lost volume. Profhilo, in contrast, actually improves the condition of the skin, which in turn delivers a plumper, more hydrated complexion. The results of Profhilo treatment improve over time as the body is stimulated to produce new, healthy collagen and elastin.
What can I expect from Profhilo?
Profhilo is administered using the BAP method , which ensures that the potent formulation is injected into the most receptive treatment areas in order to deliver the best results.
Also known as the Bio Aesthetic Points technique, the BAP method ensures that injection sites are selected on the basis of their ability to support the effective diffusion of the treatment, which allows practitioners to minimize the number of syringes used and to keep discomfort to a minimum for patients.
What does the BAP method involve?
There are five injection sites on each side of the face; the upper cheek, lower cheek, chin, jawline, and nasal base. This method has been clinically tested for optimal efficiency and efficacy, with patients also experiencing less swelling and soreness thanks to the precision involved in its administration.
Unlike many aesthetic treatments, Profhilo is suitable for use in a range of different areas, including the face, neck, décolletage, hands, abdomen, and upper arms. Highly qualified and experienced aesthetic practitioners can help you find the right treatment and support you in making the best, most informed decisions.
