How does Profhilo® work?

Profhilo® has the highest hyaluronic acid concentration of any product on the market (64mg/2ml). It contains high and low molecular of hyaluronic acids, which fused by patented NAHYCO technology instead of chemical binding agent BDDE. The solution is injected into the dermis at 5 injecting points and it will spread between the dermis and subcutaneous fats evenly. This low molecular HA will improve fine lines and wrinkles while the high molecular HA can support the sagging dermis. 

After 4 hours of the Profhilo® injection, its hybrid cell restoring technology stimulates the COLVI, COLVII and ELS in the epidermis to rapidly increase, while continually stimulating the dermis’ fibroblasts to produce more collagen, leaving the skin fuller and smoother from the inside out. Aside from this, the Profhilo® can also maintain and stimulate activity in the subcutaneous fat cells to delay the loss, while resolving the problem of sunken for an even more youthful effect.

What can Profhilo® treat?

Profhilo® can treat loose and sagging aged skin such as skin creepiness, severe wrinkles, dehydrated skin, necklines, turkey neck, lines on the back of the hand, loose skin of the hands, wrinkles in the upper chest etc. 

Treatable areas include the face, neck, upper chest, arms, back of the hands, etc.

The Advantages of Profhilo®

Skin remodelling

In comparison with other HA dermal filler treatments, Profhilo® is the only available treatment with the capacity to remodel the skin by activating the fibroblasts to produce collagen while stimulating the elastin. Profhilo® can also improve skin conditions at various depths while maintaining subcutaneous fats and preventing the loss of facial volume. 

Natural Results

The hyaluronic acids delivered by Profhilo® will gradually fuse with the skin, therefore not affecting your facial expressions while improving your skin texture. 

Simple and effective

The Profhilo® injection requires only 10 injection points for the neck while that on the face only requires 5 on each side. There is no need for anaesthetic and no recovery period, and you can resume your normal life immediately after the treatment. 

Profhilo® has three major results on the skin:

  1. It hydrates the skin while increasing its ability to lock in moisture, leaving the skin moist and glowing for a long time. 
  2. It stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, filling out wrinkles while tightening loose skin. 
  3. It maintains the subcutaneous fats, delaying their loss and restoring fullness and elasticity to the skin.

Long-term results

Profhilo®’s patented hybrid technology activates the fibroblasts, generating 12x more collagen, elastin and fat cells. This activation can last 2 months while full results can last for 8-12 months.
