What Is Profhilo?


Profhilo is the brand name for hyaluronic acid-based injectable that is widely used in anti-aging treatment. Profhilo is a highly biocompatible hybrid of low and high-molecular-weight hyaluronic acids. This hybrid complex is manufactured by using NAHYCO Hybrid Technology. Profhilo has been used for enhancing facial aesthetics as well as promoting the repair and regeneration of skin tissues. Profhilo is an intradermal injectable facial filler that is used for combating age-related changes in the skin. Profhilo restores the skin's elasticity and fades the visible signs of aging.

How Does Profhilo Work?


As we age, the matrix components of our skin deteriorate. This is accompanied by reduced activity of fibroblasts, the cells responsible for laying down collagen fibers. Hyaluronic acid maintains an optimal environment for the proliferation of cells and retention of skin moisture. Low-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid interacts with certain receptors and stimulates the proliferation of skin cells and fibroblasts. This restores the collagen content of the skin and helps achieve soft and supple skin. Moreover, high-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid serves as a scaffold for the collagen fibers and dermal matrix. Hyaluronic acid is known for attracting water molecules, thousand times more than its molecular weight. The hybrid composition of Profhilo enables it to counter the skin-aging mechanism.


What Does Profhilo Treatment Involve?


Profhilo is an ideal injective treatment for those who are suffering from facial lines, wrinkles, dehydration, and loss of skin volume and elasticity. Standard Profhilo treatment, which is also followed by our clinic in Newcastle, consists of 2 treatment sessions with an interval of four weeks. 2 ml of Profhilo is injected intradermally. The low viscosity of this substance facilitates the adequate distribution of Profhilo underneath the skin. The treatment is time-effective and each session does not continue for long. A total of 10 intradermal Profhilo injections are required and the results can be observed within a short duration. Maximum results are recorded a few weeks after the second treatment session.

Being a non-surgical procedure, Profhilo injections are relatively safer dermal fillers for adding volume and improving face contour. Various benefits and applications of Profhilo are listed below.

● Profhilo is a non-surgical treatment for neutralizing age-related facial changes and making your face soft and plump.

● Profhilo tightens the skin by stimulating the deposition and remodeling of elastin and collagen fibers. This returns the skin to its characteristic elasticity and treats saggy or loose skin.

● Since Profhilo stimulates the production of keratinocytes, it adds to the integrity and rejuvenation of the skin. Profhilo also makes you clear and spotless. This is important for those who are aiming to look younger.

● Profhilo intradermal injections can serve as a targeted therapy for certain areas. Not only does it cater to the face, but Profhilo treatment is also effective for the skin of the neck and arms.
