Profhilo is formulated, tested, and produced by IBSA Pharma. Patented technology is used to bind the low and high-molecular weight HA together. With increased stability, the compounds last for much longer inside your skin.
Profhilo is a pure hyaluronic acid (HA) that improves skin’s quality. It is a type of skin tissue enhancer that remodels 3 main types- Collagen, Elastin & Adipocytes (fat cells).
- Stimulates the fibroblast cells, thereby increasing collagen and elastin production.
- Activates the keratinocytes to increase the synthesis of collagen and elastin.
- Preserves and encourages the viability of adipocytes that affect the quality of adipose tissue.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What is Profhilo?
Profhilo is a hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable product. It is based on advanced technology that engages with the body’s receptors and stimulates collagen growth and a much more natural reaction.
Unlike HA dermal fillers, Profhilo flows easily and distributes itself within the skin tissue, rather than being locally placed by an injection.
What it contains?
Each Profhilo contains 64 mg of HA in a 2ml prefilled syringe. Profhilo does not contain additives such BBDE or Lycodine.
What is its technology?
Developed with IBSA’s patented NAHYCO® technology, PROFHILO® contains one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid and delivers a prolonged efficacy without the addition of cross-linking chemical agents.
Which is the manufacturer?
Profhilo is manufactured by IBSA and distributed by Alma.
How does Profhilo work?
Profhilo works by stimulating of 4 variants of collagen and elastin through the slow release of HA.
This process results in significant skin tissue improvement.
Is Profhilo a dermal filler?
Profhilo is not a dermal filler nor a biorevitaliser – a new injectable category was opened by Profhilo – bioremodeling. The dual action of the two HA components of Profhilo is for remodeling of skin laxity.
Does Profhilo make HA dermal fillers redundant?
As mentioned before, Profhilo does not work like a dermal filler. Though it has a certain volumetric effect that can be experienced within a month this is to not to the extent of replacing HA fillers. It represents a different approach and can be used alone for a more natural look or as a complimentary treatment to increase the effect of any HA dermal filler.
What makes Profhilo so unique?
It does not contain any BDDE content. Being thermally cross-linked, it generates stabilised hybrid co-operative complexes of both H-HA and L-HA. Though it is high in HA (Hyaluronic Acid) content, it causes very little inflammation as it is coupled with pro-healing properties.
How is Profhilo stabilized?
Using patented technology for the process, a hybrid cooperative complexes between high molecular weight HA (Hyaluronic Acid) and low molecular HA (Hyaluronic Acid) is achieved. That is without the use of chemical cross-linking compounds. These complexes mean an increased stability of HA (Hyaluronic Acid) to enzymatic and mechanical degradation.
How many Profhilo treatments are usually recommended?
Profhilo treatment is given one month apart. So that means 2 sessions. If the skin still shows high levels of ageing, another session can be performed 2 months after the second treatment. For optimal results, the treatment cycle can be performed twice a year.
