Profhilo®

Profhilo® is a bio-remodelling HA (hyaluronic acid) that unlike traditional dermal fillers doesn’t volumise but instead stimulates the laying-down of new collagen and elastin in the superficial layers, just under the

surface of the skin

Profhilo® has been widely used in Europe for the past five years. Over a million syringes have been administered, and crucially, it has a very well-established safety profile.

So what is Profhilo®?

Profhilo® is a bio-remodelling product that works through the slow release of both high and low molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid. While it consists of pure HA, it is not a dermal filler in the traditional sense, as its function is not to volumise but to induce bio-stimulation of cells. This means it stimulates the laying-down of new collagen and elastin in the superficial layers, just under the surface of the skin.

Once injected Profhilo® spreads and becomes integrated into the skin.

The result is lifted tissue with fewer lines and wrinkles, improved texture and intense hydration.

How long does a treatment take?

While an appointment is 30 minutes, there are very specific injection points used and the actual treatment takes only 10 minutes. It is relatively pain free and there is no downtime required.

How many treatments will I need and what is the cost?

Profhilo® involves 2 treatments spread 4 weeks apart. The cost of 2 treatments is $1600.

What areas can be treated?

You can use it on the face, neck, hands and soon there will be treatment options for the décolletage, arms and legs too.

How long will the treatment last?

It is recommended to repeat annually, but the treatment can be repeated every six months.

What side effects can Profhilo® cause?

The common injection related side effects are localised and temporary, and may include one or more of the following:

  • Swelling, redness and/or slight bruising.
  • Occasionally itching, pain/tenderness, or increasing swelling.
  • Rare risks such as blindness, loss of blood supply to an area of skin and infection associated with the filler product have been reported in literature. These are treatable if managed appropriately.

Am I suitable for this treatment?

With our natural collagen and elastin formation slowing from as young as 20 years of age anybody and everybody can benefit from Profhilo whether you are 30 or 70, male or female you will notice the difference.
