What is Profhilo?
Profhilo® is the first of its kind, and is a revolutionary ‘beneath the skin’ hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment, made with the patented NAHYCO® technology. This results in a unique hyaluronic acid injectable gel, which prolongs the stimulating activity of 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 has one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market, it not only boosts and hydrates the skin, but also remodels ageing and sagging tissue. The most common areas of treatment include the face and neck and can also be used for the décolletage, hands, arms, knees and abdomen area where it would effectively treat skin laxity. The treatment is suitable for men and women as well as offering skin benefits for patients of all ages.
How Does it Work?
The ultra-pure hyaluronic acid is injected precisely into the area being treated. Unlike wrinkle reducing and dermal filler treatments, Profhilo stimulates collagen and elastin, attracting water in the deeper layers of the skin.
As a stabilised product, the activity on dermal cells will last longer than that of a non-stabilised gel. During this time the stimulation of four different types of collagen and elastin takes place by the slow release of hyaluronic acid.
The stimulation then results in significant tissue improvement. Therefore we cannot say that Profhilo is a skin booster but it also has a very significant tightening and lifting effect on the tissue.
