If you haven’t heard of Profhilo, where have you been? Profhilo is a non-surgical anti-ageing treatment, that’s safe, long-lasting, and effective. Known as an award-winning injectable moisturising treatment made with the patented NAHYCO technology. It provides a unique ‘beneath the skin’ glow and we are ecstatic to add Profhilo to our expanding portfolio of products.
What is Profhilo?
Profhilo is a unique skin remodelling treatment that works by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. Unlike other anti-ageing injectables, Profhilo slowly releases a high concentration of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) evenly throughout the skin. HA is a naturally occurring substance in the body that firms, hydrates and rebuilds new and younger-looking skin cells.
What are the benefits of Profhilo?
Profhilo can be used to treat areas such as the face, neck, and décolletage. It can also be used to treat loose skin on the hands, knees, and other areas of the body. Profhilo doesn’t just give a boost of hydration, it is used to ‘bio-remodel’ the skin to give a rejuvenating effect. Profhilo is one of the highest concentrations of injectable Hyaluronic Acid available in medical aesthetics, therefore it doesn’t augment facial features, instead, it enhances the health of the skin in both complexion and quality. It is even effective in improving skin that has been damaged by sun exposure.
Profhilo offers a series of key benefits through internal hydration and skin lifting and remodelling:
Provides the skin with a healthy glow and a radiant complexion
Promotes softness and smooth skin
Achieves a lifting effect and smooths out lines and wrinkles
Structural remodelling of the skin
Stimulates the skin’s production of collagen and elastin for natural volume
Profhilo achieves these amazing results through the stimulation of collagen and elastin, which are responsible for the elasticity and firmness of the skin.
How long does Profhilo take to work?
Profhilo remains in the skin for 28 days after treatment, in which it continues to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. Results are most visible in 4 weeks after, but patients will still notice youthful, hydrated, and glowing skin after 8 weeks.
The demand for Profhilo
Profhilo is being referred to as the most in-demand injectable, and we can see exactly why. The global facial injectable market size was valued at USD 16.1 billion in 2021 and it is still rapidly growing. Awareness of aesthetic appearance, the ageing population and the high demand for minimally invasive procedures are driving the growth of this industry. Due to incredible advancements in facial rejuvenation procedures, Profhilo is highly sought after due to being the ultimate step in a patient’s skincare routine. From the Google Trends below, you can see that Profhilo-related searches have risen in the last six months alone.
What is Profhilo made from?
Profhilo is made from Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occurring sugar chain molecule found in the skin, which attracts and binds water. Hyaluronic Acid provides volume and hydration, to support collagen and elastin fibres, being a carrier for the efficient transport of chemical messages between the cells. Profhilo is a unique, highly purified, and extremely biocompatible product as the manufacturing process does not involve the use of chemical cross-linking agents to bind the chains.
How does Profhilo work?
Profhilo is delivered into the skin through a small series of injections, which stimulates the dermal cells to improve and restore firmness. Profhilo contains low molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid and high weight Hyaluronic Acid, which both have their own amazing advantages for the skin:
- Low molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid – Provides hydration, particularly to the epidermis (surface) layer of the skin.
- High-weight Hyaluronic Acid – Adds volume to the skin for a lifting effect.
- Profhilo is a stabilised product, meaning its longevity enables the product to gradually hydrates the skin. Profhilo improves the quality of the skin in both the dermis and the epidermis.
You may be asking is Profhilo worth it? The simple answer is yes. Due to its fast-acting, effective, and minimally invasive nature, your customers will love this product as much as we do. Overall, the effect of Profhilo leaves the skin glowing, plumped and more youthful, which works great alongside other aesthetic treatments.
