Profhilo is an injectable anti-ageing treatment made from hyaluronic acid for skin that is losing its elasticity and firmness with age. It is not a volume replacement treatment but a skin quality treatment and it can complement other aesthetic procedures. It can be used on the face, neck, décolletage and back of the hands to stimulate collagen regeneration and restore a plump dewy look and feel to the skin. It is also effective at treating skin laxity especially on the lower face and neck.
A course of 3 injections 1 month apart is recommended to achieve best results, with a maintenance treatment every 6 months. Profhilo injections are placed very superficially in the dermis, so a small lump may be noticeable in the skin for the first 48h. However, this quickly dissolves as the product diffuses.
It is important to inject the product in the correct location and layer of the skin to prevent complications and get measurable results, so knowledge of the skin’s anatomy and biology is key.
