Profhilo is neither a mesotherapy product nor a dermal filler. It represents a new category of treatments in improving skin quality. The production procedure of Profhilo begins with a simple mix of 32mg HA-H (high molecular weight Hyaluronic acid) and 32mg HA-L (low molecular weight Hyaluronic acid). The mixture is then put through thermal stabilisation, rather than chemical additives, to achieve cross linking. The complex obtained has the following unique qualities:
- high HA concentration (64mg/2ml)
- extensive spreadability, cohesivity and thus tissue integration
- low viscosity
- no added chemical agent or BDDE
- low inflammatory response
Extensive research on effects of Profhilo, especially since 2015, has produced data showing remodelling of the extracellular matrix with an increase in the expression levels of type I and type III collagen in fibroblasts and type IV and VII collagen in keratinocytes, as well as increased expression of elastin. These data confirm enhancements in the skin texture, elasticity and hydration, with a tightening and lifting effect. Profhilo can be used as a stand-alone procedure or to prepare patient for treatment with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers for best outcome.
Tissue remodelling and improvement in skin laxity of face, neck and body.
Skin is cleaned with an antiseptic solution and injection sites are marked. Product is injected superficially, in the subcutaneous layer, as a bolus of 0.2ml per point e.g 5 injection points on each side of the face. This will create slight ‘bumps’ at sites of injection which may last up to 24hrs but dissipates as the product spreads along the plain of tissue.
Two sessions with a one month interval followed by a third session within the next four months:
- Treatment 1 (2ml)
- 1 months later, treatment 2 (2ml)
- Within next 4 months, treatment 3 (2ml)
- Additional within the same year for problematic areas (2ml)
