When it comes to stimulating collagen and improving the overall skin texture of the face and neck, there isn’t much that compares to Profhilo . It’s a relatively new, non-invasive treatment in the world of aesthetics, but since its release in 2015, it’s managed to cause quite a stir with clients and practitioners alike – promising to deliver a smoother, more supple and radiant complexion.
What is Profhilo?
Profhilo is an injectable treatment used to boost hydration and improve the skin quality on the face, neck, décolletage and body. It is formulated with one of the highest concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid on the market, to naturally boost collagen within the body, hydrate the skin, and also remodel the ageing and sagging tissue.
Profhilo is commonly mistaken as a type of dermal filler, but whilst the two treatments are similar in the sense that both involve injecting hyaluronic acid into the skin, Profhilo doesn’t give the volume and definition that fillers provide, and it doesn’t change the structure of the face. It is simply about stimulating and rehydrating the skin, boosting radiance and improving elasticity.
How does it work?
Profhilo is a honey-like substance that is injected into five key sites of the area being treated. From these injection sites, it will spread, finding its way underneath the skin’s surface to treat the area as a whole. Once in place, Profhilo boosts skin hydration by enabling the skin to hold more moisture. It also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which is what, in time, will make the skin smoother, plumper and bouncier.
A complete reboot of the skin.
The surface of our skin tends to become rougher, drier and more crepey over the years. Dehydration occurs when the skin barrier isn’t doing its job of holding moisture in the skin as well as it used to – a battle that many women face as they approach and go through menopause. Once we start to lose hydration, the skin begins to look more tired and dull, and wrinkles show up more quickly.
Another factor is the loss of collagen and elastin, the crucial, supportive proteins that give skin its structure and bounce and keep it firm. From the age of 25, our collagen supply begins to gradually decrease, year by year, until the menopause, at which point it plummets to almost nothing. When this occurs, the skin loses its elasticity which leads to increased wrinkles and sagging.
When we treat skin that’s going through these changes with a bio-stimulator such as Profhilo, we’re not only improving hydration in the skin, but we’re stimulating the skin’s fibroblast cells to kickstart significant renewal within the skin for a complete skin reboot.
Profhilo’s patented technology uses a highly stable form of hyaluronic
acid, allowing it to remain in the skin for around 28 days. During this time, the stimulation of 4 different types of collagen (I, III, IV and VII) and elastin takes place by slow release hyaluronic acid. The collagen and elastin stimulation results in significant tissue improvement. The highly pure grade and stable hyaluronic acid is produced by biofermentation. This high purity and absence of additives offers greater safety and reduced side effects.
How is Profhilo different from a filler?
Profhilo is a completely new category of injectable skin treatment. The
slow-release and long-lasting action of collagen and elastin stimulation
remodels the tissue.This is known as Nahyco technology. Profhilo is often chosen by patient’s wanting to improve their skin condition to address laxity and not just fill lines and wrinkles.
