What is PROFHILO?
Profhilo is the first BDDE-free stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) based product for treating skin laxity.
With one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market (64mg / 2ml) it is not only boosting and hydrating the skin, but also remodels the ageing and sagging tissue.
How it Works:
Profhilo stimulates the 4 different types of collagen and elastin by slow release of HA.
The stimulation results in significant tissue improvement. Therefore we cannot say that Profhilo is a skin booster as it also has a significant tightening / lifting effect on the tissue.
Profhilo® is a patented technology based on stabilised hybrid complexes of hyaluronic acid at high and low molecular weights.
The hybrid complexes generate a dual action:-
hydrating and stimulating action, related to low molecular weight (HYDRO)
dermal scaffold action (support), related to high molecular weight (LIFT)
What are the Advantages:
In Profhilo, L-HA is released slowly from the HA hybrid complexes and therefore does not trigger the first inflammatory cytokines making it very biocompatible. It also increases patient comfort during and after treatment and provides hydration to the skin especially in the epidermis – the Hydro effect.
H-HA in Profhilo provides a stable HA architecture in the dermis. This gives a volumetric effect – the Lift effect.
This results in improved skin quality and skin hydration both in the dermis and epidermis. There is also increased production of endogenous HA and elastin giving the skin a more youthful look.
