Profhilo is not a mesotherapy product, neither is it a dermal filler. Profhilo is a stabilised Hyaluronic Acid but without any chemical cross-linking agents- the first injectable of its kind.*
Profhilo counteracts skin laxity through a remodelling action of collagen and elastin fibres of the dermal matrix.
This is free of the chemical 1,4-butanediol diglycidyl ether (BDDE). By nature this liquid is vicious, however it links the Hyaluronic Acid chains to prevent them from being broken down in the body. Although the small amounts of this chemical used in dermal fillers has been indicted to be safe, we are aware this BDDE-free product will definitely appeal to clients who are opposed to synthetics chemicals being used in products.
Profhilo is injected in the superficial subcutaneous layer using all aesthetic techniques. In addition there is the Bio Aesthetic Point Technique covering the entire malar and submalar areas with only 5 injection points on each side of the face.**
The recommendation for the treatment is:
Perform 2 treatments with a 1 month interval, and depending on the level of ageing, a maintenance treatment may be performed 2 months after the second treatment.
Repeat this cycle 2 times per year.
From a safety point of few, Profhilo is highly bio-compatible and there is no recommended recovery time due to there being minimal ejection points.

Due to it’s high spreadability, this product creates volume in the tissue where its needed. It is also an ideal treatment for the more challenging areas including neck, perioral areas and hand and arms, where we don’t necessarily see the volume loss but the skin has lost its elasticity.
