FAQs about profhilo body treatment
What is profhilo?
Profhilo is a skin booster made from a highly purified form of injectable hyaluronic acid. It is essentially an injectable moisturiser or skin remodeler, which hydrates the skin from the inside-out and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin.
Is profhilo the same as filler?
No but both dermal filler and Profhilo are made from the same substance: Hyaluronic acid. What make Profhilo different is the fact it is made from non-cross linked Haluronic acid. Whereas dermal filler when injected will generally stay in or around the are it has been injected (cross-linked), Profhilo will spread out under the skin, fill up depleted areas of skin where necessary and add to the skin’s hydration levels resulting in healthy and hydrated skin!
When will I see the results and how long does it last?
You can see immediate results but best results are seen a couple of weeks after the second treatment. A further top-up session may be desired after 6 months for the best results possible.
Who can get Profhilo?
Everyone can benefit from this treatment. Younger people can see the benefits through better skin hydration and quality and older people see depleted areas filled and plumped up and the skin looking firmer, younger and slightly lifted.
Can Profhilo go wrong?
Because Profhilo is made from non-crosslinked HA it has a very high safety profile. Although it has to be noted that this is still a medical procedure and therefore Profhilo has some side effects that are similar to other types of filler like bruising swelling and very rarely an infection.
