Profhilo BioRemodeling

Profhilo was launched in Italy in 2015 and will now be available in Australia from August 2022.
Dermocosmètica has launched PROFHILO® in Australia and New Zealand. Profhilo® is a new category of injectables called Bioremodeling HA fillers. Consisting of ultra-pure hyaluronic acid, PROFHILO® stimulates stem cells and provides a stable environment for the laying down of new collagen and elastin in the superficial layers of the skin. Moreover, PROFHILO® maintain the integrity, firmness, and volume of fat. PROFHILO® creates volume in the tissue where it is needed due to its high spreadability. This results in lifted tissue with fewer wrinkles, improved texture, intense hydration, an overall improvement in skin quality and firmer skin. Profhilo is a real anti-ageing treatment.
PROFHILO® differs from any other dermal filler and skin booster for a number of reasons. From a characteristic position, it is almost a liquid (honey-like consistency) and able to flow from one part to the next easily. From a patient’s perspective, this translates to an easy treatment with minimal injection points and almost no downtime. From the injector’s perspective, treatment can be performed quickly and efficiently with less discomfort to the patient.

    Most patients will require 2 treatment sessions one month apart. Some patients may require 3 sessions at monthly intervals. Results can last about 6 months. To maintain the best results, the treatment cycle can be carried out twice a year.
    Over a period of 3 – 4 weeks, Profhilo kick starts the production of elastin, re-modelling the skin tissue and giving it a plumper and tighter look radiating a natural glow. Profhilo can be used as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other fillers to replace volume loss, and hydrate and tighten skin. Profhilo can also complement laser treatments or botulinum toxins to get an even better result.
    Even though Profhilo is HA, it is not a dermal or volumizing filler. That is while fillers are intended to add volume and replace volume loss in the face e.g. to give you apple cheeks or a well-defined jawline and pointed chin. Profhilo acts to deeply hydrate the skin, improve skin elasticity and quality and improve skin laxity.
    Profhilo contains one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid (64mg/2ml) available on the market. As the HA is higher, it can absorb water better and the skin will be more hydrated. Even though Profhilo is a HA, it is not a filler. It cannot replace volume loss or augment various parts of the face such as the cheek or tear trough which start to lose collagen.
    PROFHILO® treatment is a new anti-aging approach
    PROFHILO® is best described as a biological remodelling agent, ‘bio-rejuvenator’, ‘bio-revitalizer’ or ‘tissue-stimulator’.
    Bioremodeling is an innovative biological activity to anti-aging which counteracts skin laxity of the face and in areas traditionally difficult to treat, such as the neck. hands and arms.
    Profhilo is the only product which acts to stimulate all four types of collagen, elastin and fat cells.

    As we age, the presence of hyaluronic acid in the skin naturally starts to drop, which causes the skin to lose its natural firmness and elasticity. Most people begin to see the effects of hyaluronic acid depletion as they reach their 30s – and Profhilo® is the perfect treatment for anyone looking to counteract this.

    Once injected into the correct layer of the skin, Profhilo flows and spreads to the other parts of the face or skin, providing a very nice stretch and tightening to the saggy skin.
    It is also capable of stimulating our skin to produce all four types of collagen and elastin – these vital substances which are lost from the skin as we age. Thereby further improving the skin elasticity and skin quality.
    Side effects are uncommon and usually mild. They include small bumps, redness, bruising, mild tenderness or discoloration which generally will resolve within a few days.
    Profhilo® was launched in February 2015 in Italy. Today Profhilo is available in over 80 countries worldwide. Since 2015 over 4.5 million Profhilo treatments have been performed.
    From a safety perspective, Profhilo® is highly bio-compatible because it is made from ultra-pure, natural Hyaluronic Acid and is stabilised without the addition of chemical cross-linking agents. This reduces the risk of adverse reactions.
    PROFHILO® must not be used in concurrence with treatments such as laser resurfacing and medium-deep skin-peeling.
    The product is injected in small ‘deposits’, you may be able to see them initially, but they settle usually within hours. It may be possible to feel the product where it has been injected under the skin. It will settle, there is no need to massage.
    • Make-up should not be worn for 12 hours
    • You are advised to avoid alcohol and vigorous exercise for 48 hours
    • Avoid sunbathing, and extremes of heat or cold for 14 days post-treatment.
    • Any bruising may take a few days to appear, arnica can be helpful in clearing bruising. It is advisable to avoid aspirin and alcohol for 12-48 hours after treatment.
    • Tenderness should settle as swelling and bruising goes down.
    • The following should be avoided at least 1-week post-treatment:
    • Direct ultraviolet light exposure (sun and solariums)
    • Further clinical treatments (including, but not limited to): microdermabrasion, laser, intense pulsed light, chemical peels, muscle relaxant injections, and dermal fillers.
    Profhilo® ‘remodels’ the skin after just 2 treatments (4 weeks apart) resulting in tighter, firmer, hydrated, smoother, radiant skin. Sometimes further treatments are required to see the full benefit of Profhilo®. Generally, this would be determined during your initial consultation.
    We may then recommend top-up and maintenance sessions, depending on your body’s response to the initial treatment
