Profhilo is the new injectable skinbooster hyaluronic acid created by IBSA Italia. Profhilo is used not only to hydrate the skin but also stimulate collagen and elastin.
What is Profhilo Skinbooster?
Due to its unique properties, it moisturizes the skin from the inside out and also lifts, tightens and prevents aging.
We start losing a significant amount of collagen, elastin and Hyaluronic Acid after we reach 30, which means we start to see the signs of aging in the form of fine lines, wrinkles and . At this age, we should start to consider preserving ourselves, therefore Profhilo® is advised for individuals from around the age of 30 upwards, who wish to target ageing skin.
Profhilo® is also an excellent choice for you if you don’t want to add volume to specific areas (if this is the case, it is more likely that dermal fillers would be the right treatment for you), as it instead provides volume and hydration across the skin, giving an overall rejuvenated appearance.
Profhilo is most commonly used for facial areas, but can also effectively be used for rejuvenating the neck, décolleté, arms, knees and hands.
How does it work?
Profhilo® has been specially formulated to contain a unique level of Hyaluronic Acid, which helps to encourage the production of collagen and elastin under the skin. Due to the way Profhilo® has been made, it acts as a hydrator rather than a filler, and is therefore fantastic for those with tired, dull and ageing skin as it provides overall more plump and luminous skin.
What to expect?
Your practitioner will provide an in-depth consultation to determine if you are the right candidate for Profhilo. During the procedure, Profhilo is injected in 5 injection points under the skin that allow for the greatest results and lift.
The gel like formula spreads beneath the skin like honey, stimulating collagen and elastin and provides an instant, smoother, glowing skin, smoothing fine lines.
Who is a good candidate?
Do you feel like you are starting to see early signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles and dull skin? Profhilo is a great solution for patients that are looking to hydrate their skin for a rejuvenated look and stimulate collagen and elastin.
Is there any aftercare required?The downtime after a Profhilo treatment is minimal, and you should be able to return to your normal daily activities immediately after your procedure. Bruising and swelling at the injection sites are possible but uncommon. However, we recommend that you avoid sports on the first day after your treatment and avoid steam rooms or saunas for a few days post treatment. Sun protection is important for 1 week post treatment.
Is it safe?
Profhilo was launched in February 2015 in Italy. It’s been used worldwide ever since. Over 150,000 patients have been treated so far with no adverse reactions reported. From a safety perspective, Profhilo is highly biocompatible. That’s because it is made from natural Hyaluronic Acid and is stabilised without the addition of chemical cross-linking agents.
Optimum results from treatment will be visible four weeks after the course of Profhilo, which involves two injectable treatments four weeks apart. Clients can expect to see an intense hydration with glowing skin and fine lines minimized. You’ll notice smoother, tighter skin. Even for those clients with very wrinkled skin, an improvement in the texture is undeniable.
Results last 6 to 9 months.
What are the costs?
Each Profhilo treatment: €300.
Profhilo is recommended as a course of 2 treatments (spaced 4-6 weeks apart), and optimal results can be seen 2 months after the second treatment.
