PROFHILO® is one of the most popular injectable treatments available now, you may also know it as the “5-point lift treatment’ or 逆时针. It was awarded Product Innovation of the Year at the 2016 Aesthetics Awards in the UK, and International Anti-Aging and Beauty Trophy for ‘Best Skin Enhancement Device’ at the Aesthetic and Anti-Ageing Medicine European Congress 2015 in Paris. This became a really popular product till this date.
What is Profhilo
PROFHILO® is made from 100% pure hyaluronic acid and it holds the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid in the market. It consists of 32mg of high molecular weight hyaluronic acid (H-HA) and 32mg of low molecular weight hyaluronic acid (L-HA), totaling 64mg in 2ml.
How does it work
PROFHILO® is developed by using a patented technology resulting in Hybrid Cooperative Complex (HCC) between high molecular weight hyaluronic acid (H-HA) and low molecular hyaluronic acid (L-HA) without the use of any chemical cross-linking compounds.
The H-HA has volumetric lifting effect to the dermis layer of the skin while the L-HA provides long-lasting hydration to the epidermis layer of the skin, hence maximize the anti-aging benefits.
PROFHILO® is a bio-rejuvenator, bio-revitalizer and tissue stimulator. It doesn’t just give you a boost of hydration; it also stimulates 4 different types of collagen and elastin production to renew the skin from within, and remodels ageing and sagging tissue.
Profhilo is more than just a skin booster
Though PROFHILO® being made of hyaluronic acid, it also stimulates collagen and elastin in the skin, which explains its tightening and rejuvenating effects. Traditional skin booster only has skin hydration effect.
Profhilo is not a dermal filler
Although both contain hyaluronic acid, PROFHILO® does not have the same thick viscosity, no BDDE (cross-linking agents), and does not fill or volumize the face in specific area as dermal fillers.
Which part of the body can Profhilo be used?
Apart from the face and neck, PROFHILO® also works very well to rejuvenate the décolletage, chest, inner arms, back of the hands, abdomen and knees, making them look younger and smooth. PROFHILO® can be used to treat acne scars as well.
For the first 2 sessions of PROFHILO® treatments, it is advisable to administer them 1 month apart. For those with severe skin laxity, a third session is required in order to obtain optimal results. After completing the initial treatment, it is recommended to repeat the session after 6 months. Generally, PROFHILO® can last for up to 6 months, however it depends on the patient’s skin condition, lifestyle and environment factors as well.
Can Profhilo be combined with other treatments?
Yes! PROFHILO® can be safely combined with fillers, as fillers help to replace volume loss while PROFHILO® helps in restoring skin hydration and remodelling aging tissue. PROFHILO® also acts synergistically with other energy-based devices such as HIFU, PicoWay and Fotona laser.
