What Is Profhilo?

Profhilo is an EXCLUSIVE skin remodelling treatment that will give you visible results in just 2 visits. This revolutionary NEW treatment to rival dermal fillers takes just 10 minutes, with 5 injection points into your area of concern. It stimulates 4 different types of collagen and elastin due to the slow release of hyaluronic acid, and it is this stimulation that results in significant improvement of tissue quality.
  • Improves skin tone, texture, hydration and radiance
  • Increases firmness and elasticity – for healthier and softer skin

Profhilo® is manufactured by IBSA Farmaceutici Italia in the U.S FDA approved site in Italy and distributed in the UK & Ireland by HA-Derma Ltd. It is the first stabilized hyaluronic acid (HA) based product which is manufactured without the use of chemical cross-linking agents (BDDE) and is used for skin remodelling and treating skin laxity, not just for filling lines and wrinkles. According to the makers, it delivers dramatic improvement in tissue quality, even in challenging areas, and is complementary to other aesthetic treatments and dermal filler procedures. It is considered to be safe, effective and ‘a true breakthrough’ in anti-ageing medicines.

Why Should I Have This Treatment?

We start losing a significant amount of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid after we reach 30, and it is at this age that we start to consider preventative treatments.

This is the time when many people would consider their first anti-wrinkle injections as the first lines start to appear. If you are feel your facial tissue quality has dropped significantly, and that you may look older for your age, but are not ready for dermal fillers yet, Profhilo may be the best treatment for you.

Profhilo is not a filler – It is a new Hyaluronic Acid gel, one of the latest innovations to treat the skin laxity by skin bio-remodellingProfhilo diffuses within the tissue after injection and over the period of 4 weeks it stimulates 4 different types of collagen and elastin. It doesn’t need to be massaged and leaves no nodules. Due to the its high spreadability, only 5 injection points on each side of the face are needed, which means patients find the treatment much more comfortable.

Where Can Profhilo Be Used?

Profhilo is most commonly used for facial areas, but can also effectively be used for rejuvenating the neck, decollete and hands.

How Does it Work? The Science Behind The Beauty

Profhilo® counteracts skin laxity through a REMODELING ACTION of collagen and elastin fibres of the dermal matrix. Thanks to the unique characteristics of Profhilo®, remodelling skin laxity is easily obtained in only 2 sessions, with a 1 month interval, injected in the superficial subcutaneous layer.
Profhilo® is based on IBSA’s patented technology of stable hybrid cooperative complexes of hyaluronic acid (HA) at high and low molecular weights. This technology has allowed IBSA to present a unique concentration of hyaluronic acid to the market: 64mg in 2 ml, injectable with a 29G TW needle. The hybrid cooperative complexes generate a dual action, owing to a slow, long-lasting release of high and low molecular weight HA.

  • Hydrating and stimulating action
  • Dermal scaffold action (support)

Is There Any Downtime Required After Profhilo?

The downtime with this treatment is minimal, one of its key features! When using the particular technique for each of the 5 injection points on each side of the face, you will be able to feel the product initially after the treatment. However, the product will start to diffuse very quickly and feel softer by next day.

What Results Can I Expect?

Prior to your treatment appointment, we advise that you do not consume alcohol 24 hours before. We also request that you do not wear make up to the appointment as well.

Patients can expect increased firmness, elasticity and an overall improved quality of the skin with the effects lasting up to 6 months.
Am I Suitable for Profhilo

The treatment is mainly aimed at patients who have visible signs of skin ageing. There is no age upper limit, as Profhilo works on the skin. If there are deep folds present or the skin has lost elasticity then the combination treatments with Profhilo may be more suitable.

Why Do I Need 2 Treatments?

In order to achieve the best results and prolong those results, the two treatments are recommended with 4 weeks apart. Some people may see the results within first week, but the best outcome of the treatment will be visible 4 weeks after the second treatment.

Will People Be Able To Tell I've Had "Work Done"?

Usually no, but this depends on the skin condition treated and also on what outcome of the treatment we seek in the first place. Profhilo can significantly improve skin laxity by increasing the tissue density, with most patients often saying that they were complimented on how fresh they look, but hardly ever asked what they had done.

Will There Be Any Side Effects?

Hyaluronic Acid is very well tolerated, and the only side effects reported were related to injection itself not the product. Some patients have seen bruising and mild swelling at the injection sites, but these generally disappear in a short period of time.

It's Quite New, How I Know It's Safe To Have?
Profhilo was launched in February 2015 in Italy, and it’s been used worldwide for two years now. Over 150.000 patients were treated since with no adverse reactions reported. From a safety perspective PROFHILO is highly biocompatible owing to the fact that it is made from ultrapure, natural hyaluronic acid and stabilized without the addition of chemical cross-linking agents, therefore reducing the risk of adverse reactions.
