In the realm of aesthetic medicine, Profhilo hyaluronic acid treatment stands in its own category as a uniquely innovative filler. It is not a volumizing filler; rather, Profhilo is an aesthetic treatment aimed at deeply restructuring the skin – by stimulating collagen and elastin production – and reshaping skin laxity in the face, neck, décolleté, and other body parts such as hands and arms, through the action of natural, long-lasting hyaluronic acid, based on stable hybrid complexes of high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid.

Let’s delve deeper into this Profhilo hyaluronic acid treatment: what it is, who it’s for, how it works, the results it offers, its duration, and its contraindications.

What is Profhilo Filler?

Profhilo is an intradermal filler treatment produced by Ibsa that was immediately appreciated in aesthetic medicine for its unique composition (the only one with 64 mg of hyaluronic acid per syringe) offering equally unique visible results, thus being defined as a breakthrough in anti-aging medicine. Its unique composition of natural and stabilized hyaluronic acid of both low and high molecular weights, without the addition of chemical cross-linking agents, makes it a product of high purity and thus suitable for most people.

What is Profhilo Filler for, and How Does It Work?

The Profhilo hyaluronic acid treatment is a comprehensive anti-aging solution designed to improve the appearance of the face and skin of other treatable body parts, aiming for firmer, more compact skin without adding volume. This procedure is unique in its kind because it primarily aims to:

  •    Enrich the skin with deep hydration and keep it radiant
  •    Gradually increase the skin’s tone and elasticity
  •    Avoid the volumizing effect typical of other fillers.

Profhilo‘s innovative formula uses natural hyaluronic acid that lasts over time, thanks to a mix of high and low molecular weight molecules. This combination, made possible by advanced technology, allows reaching an unprecedented concentration of hyaluronic acid of 64 mg in just 2 ml. Its “dual essence,” consisting of different types of hyaluronic acids, offers:

  •  On one side, a bio-regenerating effect, stimulating fibroblasts to endogenously produce hyaluronic acid
  •  On the other, a supportive and tightening effect, specifically combating skin laxity and providing firmer, more compact skin.

Profhilo and Other Hyaluronic Acid Fillers: Comparison and Differences

Unlike traditional hyaluronic acid filler treatments aimed at volumizing the skin, Profhilo stands out for its goal of improving skin quality:

  •  It’s a bio-revitalizer, deeply hydrating the skin
  •  It has a bio-structuring function, offering long-term benefits thanks to its resistance to the action of hyaluronidase, the enzyme responsible for the degradation of hyaluronic acid.

How Does the Treatment Work?

Originally based on five injection points per cheek according to the BAP technique, the treatment can be adapted according to the individual needs of the patient. The use of filler cannulas is increasingly common, to optimally distribute the product in areas that most need such therapeutic intervention.

Who Can Apply the Profhilo Treatment?

Only professional and qualified healthcare operators can apply the treatment.

Who is Profhilo Filler Useful For? Who is It Indicated For?

It’s a treatment suitable from 30 years and up for those who:

  • Begin to see their skin lose tone and elasticity and appear the first signs of aging on the face, neck, and décolleté and want to counteract skin laxity.
  • Simply wish to keep their skin elastic and luminous, supporting the role of collagen and elastin and increasing its hydration.
  • Want to recover the vitality of their skin after sun exposure, counteracting the dehydrating and harmful effect of sun rays.
  • Have evident signs of skin aging due to aging. As an alternative to volumizing fillers that aim to add volume to the skin, Profhilo works more deeply by stimulating collagen and elastin production, thus offering more natural and long-lasting results.

It can also complement other filler treatments as a hyaluronic acid filler that refines the work in detail.

Sessions, Application Time, and Duration of Results

Typically, 2 sessions lasting about 15 minutes each are planned 4 weeks – about a month – apart. In cases with deep signs of aging, the healthcare professional may opt for a third session. The results are clearly visible at the end of the treatment, and to maintain them consistently, it is recommended to repeat sessions semiannually or annually, depending on the needs. The results vary according to the skin’s response to the treatment.

Side Effects and Safety

Profhilo is a biocompatible product: the purity of its composition – free of additives – makes it a very safe filler. Side effects are those common to a normal filler: swelling in the treated part for a short time following administration and destined to disappear quickly. More serious side effects may occur in subjects allergic to the composition of the gel, so it is important to check the health condition of the subject and any allergies before treatment.
