Profhilo is one of the most popular injectable skin treatments on the market right now. It is a unique product as it is not a filler and not a skin booster. Profhilo contains the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid that is formulated in a very unique way. Its main effect is as a biostimulator which means it stimulates the production of your own collagen. It helps with deeply hydrating the skin, improving the firmness, fine lines and pore size. It also slows down ageing, gives a gentle lift and incredible glow to your face.
It is different to fillers as it does not volumise the face at all. We often use it in combination with fillers as it is important your skin matches the volume in your face. If there is good volume but you have loose skin, it does not appear natural. It is different to skin boosters as it treats deeper layers of skin than skin boosters. We also often combine with skin boosters as they do different things. Skin boosters treat pores, scars in a more targeted fashion. Skin boosters can also be used on the forehead but profhilo cannot.
Profhilo can also be used in the neck, hands, abdomen area and pretty much anywhere you have had skin laxity.
It is suitable for all ages but you will see more dramatic results in older patients as they have more skin laxity and wrinkles. The results are still amazing in younger patients but it is harder to notice the difference in images and more visible in person which is why you will not see many before-afters for younger patients. This is because it is difficult to detect the difference on a 2D image which tends to focus more on contours of the face and wrinkles.
