What is PROFHILO®?

 

PROFHILO® is a stabilized form of injectable hydration drops (hyaluronic acid) for firming skin and reversing the signs of aging by bio-remodeling.

 

PROFHILO® tightens and lifts skin in a way that neither Skinboosters nor other fillers can, offering rejuvenation for a fresher and brighter version of oneself, with natural-looking contours.

 

 

 

How does PROFHILO® work?

 

PROFHILO® provides one of the highest concentrations (64mg/2ml) of hyaluronic acid around, allowing for a greater degree of hydration of the skin.

 

The uniquely stabilized hyaluronic acid is slowly released over 1 month. During this time, PROFHILO® acts as a catalyst and the skin is stimulated to produce 4 different types of collagen and elastin.

 

Over time, this results in improvements in:
• Skin firming
• Softening wrinkles and lines
• Hydration

 

How is PROFHILO® different from Skinboosters and Fillers?

 

In essence, PROFHILO®, although made up of hyaluronic acid that is also found in Skinboosters and fillers, is specially stabilized and actively bio-remodels skin to firm skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production. On the other hand, Skinboosters are small droplets of hyaluronic acid that are deposited into and sit in the skin mainly for hydrating dry skin and fillers remain the preferred option for replacing volume loss in hollowed and sunken areas.

 

And unlike the other injection techniques of Skinboosters (multiple superficial injections into the skin) and fillers (deep injections), PROFHILO®’s spreadability within the skin means that only 5 injection points are needed per side of the face for a complete treatment.

 

Is PROFHILO® right for me?

 

This hyaluronic acid injection is ideal for both male and female patients in their 40-50s who have mild to moderate skin laxity and wish to improve the skin’s hydration, collagen and elastin content, to achieve:
- Skin firming with
- Softened wrinkles and lines using
- Minimal injection points for maximal comfort.

 

PROFHILO® offers an alternative anti-aging option for those in their 30s to prevent skin laxity, and is useful in reversing signs of more extensive aging for those who are older.

 

PROFHILO® is suitable for all skin types and carries little to no down-time.

 

Which areas can PROFHILO® treat?

 

PROFHILO® firms the skin in the face, neck and décolletage. It can also be used to treat other parts of the body where the skin is prone to sagging and wrinkling, such as the back of the hands or the knees and post-pregnancy abdominal skin laxity.

 

What can I expect during and after the procedure?

 

The administration of a full syringe of PROFHILO® needs only 5 injection points per side of the face and typically takes 10-15 minutes. This procedure is performed with topical anaesthesia to ensure that the treatment is as comfortable as possible.

 

The session ends with Gentlewaves® LED treatment to speed up the healing process of the needle marks. The raised bumps from PROFHILO® will resolve over a few hours as its hyaluronic acid quickly integrates with the skin.

 

How many sessions do I need? When do I expect to see results?

 

For optimal results, we recommend an initial 2-3 sessions, spaced 4 weeks apart, followed by maintenance sessions every 6 months.

 

Unlike other hyaluronic acid injectables, PROFHILO®, as a bio-remodeling agent, will take time to effect. Results are not immediate. Instead, your skin gradually improves over 4 weeks, with full results seen 1-2 months after your 2nd session.

 

Who is not a good candidate for PROFHILO®?

 

Women who are breastfeeding or pregnant should not receive PROFHILO®.
People with bleeding disorders or previous allergic reactions that required hospital treatment should consult the doctors first to determine their suitability.

 

Can PROFHILO® be combined with other treatments?

 

Yes, PROFHILO® may be combined with other anti-aging treatments for more cost-effective rejuvenation.

 

PROFHILO® restores youthfulness to the skin and complements fillers. A smaller amount of filler is needed to replace lost volume when aging-skin is first treated with PROFHILO®.

 

PROFHILO® works well with Botox and fillers to restore the bounce and natural-contours of aging and crepey necks.

 

PROFHILO® also acts synergistically with other heat energy devices like Ultherapy or HIFU for more visible skin tightening and lifting.

 

What do I prepare for PROFHILO®

 

To minimize bruising, stop blood-thinning supplements and medications 5 days before your treatment. This includes aspirin, vitamin E, fish oil and gingko. Also, inform the IYAC doctors if you have occasional bouts of cold sores as medication to prevent a recurrence may be necessary.
