Profhilo is a bio-remodeling product that works through the slow release of both high and low molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid. While it consists of pure HA, it is not a dermal filler in the traditional sense, as its function is not to volumise but to induce bio-stimulation of cells. This means it stimulates the laying-down of new collagen and elastin in the superficial layers, just under the surface of the skin.
Once injected Profhilo® spreads and becomes integrated into the skin.
The result is lifted tissue with fewer lines and wrinkles, improved texture and intense hydration.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED AND WHAT IS THE COST?
Profhilo® involves 2 treatments spread 4 weeks apart. The cost of 2 treatments is $1600.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
You can use it on the face, neck, hands and soon there will be treatment options for the décolletage, arms and legs too.
HOW LONG WILL THE TREATMENT LAST?
It is recommended to repeat at 9 months and then annually, but the treatment can be repeated every six months.
WHAT SIDE EFFECTS CAN PROFHILO® CAUSE?
The common injection related side effects are localised and temporary, and may
include one or more of the following:
Swelling, redness and/or slight bruising.
Occasionally itching, pain/tenderness, or increasing swelling.
Rare risks such as blindness, loss of blood supply to an area of skin and infection associated with the filler product have been reported in literature. These are treatable if managed appropriately.
AM I SUITABLE FOR THIS TREATMENT?
With our natural collagen and elastin formation slowing from as young as 20 years of age, anybody and everybody can benefit from Profhilo whether you are 30 or 70, male or female you will notice the difference.
