Profhilo Filler Treatment

What is Profhilo®?

Profhilo® is part of a new generation of anti-ageing injectables. Skin that has lostelasticity can benefit from this series of 100% hyaluronic acid (HA) gel injections – onthe face or any area of concern. Profhilo can be used on the neck, the décolleté andchest, the arms, backs of hands and even on the knees if skin laxity is an issue. Apowerful rejuvenating treatment, Profhilo has been described as ‘skin bio-remodelling’ and a ‘non-surgical face lift’ – it offers improved elasticity and a natural,youthful effect which is non-toxic, hydrating and impossible to detect.The injection technique behind the Profhilo concept has been around since the earlytwentieth century. Multiple shallow injections of vitamin solution, filler or animal-derived collagen have been used to plump the skin surface with varied results. Thethick, viscous nature of early filler product was inappropriate for generally enhancingskin quality and was better reserved for deep lines and furrows. Mesotherapy, still acommon

rejuvenating option, has been popular since the 1950s and involveswidespread ‘mini’ injections of a targeted vitamin solution. While restorative andbeneficial for skin health, it does not possess comparable hydrating potential. Withthe rise of HA based filler as an aesthetic industry mainstay, multiple injections ofthis safe, naturally-occurring and water-retaining substance has revolutionised skinrejuvenation.Unlike volume replacing filler treatments – cheek and lip for instance – Profhilo is notdesigned to fill cavities or enhance facial structure, but to improve the surface of theskin. While it does not deliver a large, localised volume increase, it does deliver ageneral increase of volume within the skin tissue – resulting in a plumper look andfeel across the area. It can be used in tandem with other fillers, or alone.Profhilo is delivered in two sessions, around four to six weeks apart. The uniquelyformulated HA solution is injected just below the surface of the skin with a very fineneedle.

As an injectable procedure there may be some sensation but it’s typicallyless painful than other aesthetic treatments. The Profhilo solution is absorbed andintegrated into the skin tissue and begins to stimulate elastin and collagen. Withinfour weeks results should be increasingly visible with the best results at the eightweek mark. The slow release of hyaluronic acid continues to keep skin hydrated inthe longer-term and to promote collagen production. It softens lines, smooths skintexture and increases skin ’bounce’ – a visible yet subtle result which will last up tosix months.Profhilo is discrete and suited to a busy schedule. As with most aesthetic treatmentsthere are minor risks such as swelling, bruising and allergic reaction – a qualified andexperienced practitioner is essential, especially in the case of multiple injectionprocedures. At Santi, Profhilo is administered by plastic surgeons only, with anopportunity to review and assess your treatment in the weeks following.
