Profhilo® is especially effective at treating loose skin in the cheek and jowls as well as other areas usually considered difficult to treat with injectable products, such as the: temples, forehead, hands, inner arms and neck. It is an excellent option for the early prevention of lines, wrinkles and loss of volume. From age 20, we lose around 1% of the collagen and elastin from our skin tissue. Collagen and elastin are the building blocks that give the skin its plumped-up, healthy appearance.
While Profhilo® is based on pure hyaluronic acid (HA) technology, it’s more of a ‘skin booster’ than a filler. It hydrates the skin as well as stimulates all four types of collagen and elastin, and is described as a ‘ ‘bio- revitaliser’. The patented technology behind Profhilo allows it to maintain its stability without the use of chemicals (BDDE cross-linking agents) found in other HA-based products. Being free from additives as well as having a high level of purity makes it safer and reduces the chance of side effects. These benefits are enhanced by the specialised BAP injection technique that we will use during the treatment session.
During the treatment we inject the product using very fine needles in five specific points on the face that Profhilo® call the Bio Aesthetic Points (BAPs). The BAP technique is seen as the optimum method for placement of the HA. It allows the treatment to be effective and simple, reducing the chance of pain, bruising or haematoma at the injection site.
