Profhilo Skin Tightening

21st of November, 2019

Profhilo is not a dermal filler but it is a hyaluronic acid gel, one of the latest innovations to treat skin laxity by subcutaneous stimulation. Profhilo is a skin booster made from hyaluronic acid for skin that is losing its elasticity and firmness with age. It creates a fresh natural look and softens fine lines. It won the best new aesthetic product award for 2018 in UK

 

How does it work
Profhilo stimulates the production of new collagen in the skin by a slow release of hyaluronic acid.

 

The treatment protocol
Results are visible after only 2 sessions 4 weeks apart. Treatment results last for up to six months. Profhilo can work as a treatment on its own or in combination with other cosmetic treatments.

 

Complications
As with any injectable treatment there are minor risks, including bruising and swelling, as well as infection, allergic reaction, vascular compromise and nerve damage; although these are rare.

 

Contraindications
Contraindications include patients with bleeding disorders, immune compromised disorders and those with unrealistic expectations.

 

Conclusion and treatment areas
Profhilo does not create the volume replacement associated with dermal fillers, it creates volume in the tissue where it is needed due to its high spreadability. It is good to treat challenging areas such as the eyes, neck, chest and hands.
