What is Profhilo Treatment and What is it Good for?

Jul 2, 2021

With such a variety of injectable treatments on the modern cosmetology market, one could hardly imagine a product that could surprise anyone. Nevertheless, the injectable dermal filler Profhilo by the Swiss company IBSA showed a revolutionary new perspective on the rejuvenating cosmetic injectables. If you are deciding on Profhilo cosmetic treatments, this article will reveal the following questions:

✔ what is Profhilo filler

✔ how it differs from the rest of dermal fillers and other injectable treatments

✔ how it works

✔ what results to expect

✔ how does the Profhilo treatment procedure look like

✔ recovery: effects, side effects, and potential risks

Let’s get started!

What Makes Profhilo a Special Hyaluronic Acid Filler?

Profhilo injectable treatment is a liquid transparent, and viscous gel with one of the highest concentrations of a synthetic stabilised hyaluronic acid as the active substance. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that our bodies produce, and it is responsible for many vital processes, one of which is hydration and the production of new collagen and elastin fibers. With age, when all the processes in the organism slow down, the concentration of hyaluronic acid, and correspondingly collagen and elastin decrease, leading to the more pronounced manifestations of the visible signs of aging: wrinkles, folds, loss of elasticity, poor turgor, sagging.

Profhilo injections provide intense hydration to the matrix of the dermal tissues as hyaluronic acid attracts and binds the molecules of water, holding the moisture longer. It deeply rejuvenates the tissues from inside, boosting the inner processes aimed at renewing and recovery, prolonging the youth, and making skin look younger, healthier, and more radiant.

How is Profhilo Different from Other Injectable Fillers?

If we compare Profhilo treatments with other dermal fillers, the basic difference lies in the way the molecules of hyaluronic acid are bind among themselves, as IBSA uses a different patented technology and the aim of Profhilo is not to restore the lost volume by filling in the shallow areas in the skin tissue but to intensely hydrate the derma and help the skin restore itself.

Thus, Profhilo does not provide additional volume and is not suitable for changing facial features like plumping lips or defining cheekbones. Profhilo is like intense skincare but from inside.

How does Profhilo Work?

Unlike many “classic” dermal fillers, Profhilo consists of two types of non-crosslinked hyaluronic acid that deeply penetrates the dermal tissues and launches the rejuvenation processes. First of all, Profhilo injections boost hydration as the molecule of hyaluronic acid is an excellent humectant that can hold moisture up to 1000 times of its own weight.

The second point is that hyaluronic acid is a kind of building material for producing collagen and elastin, elements responsible for skin firmness, elasticity, turgor, even relief. A high concentration of these substances in the dermal tissues greatly improves the condition of the skin, eliminating many imperfections like fine lines, sagging skin, acne scars, volume loss, and more.

That is why Profhilo gains such popularity among patients in their 30ies and older, as it provides natural results, soft, tender, without visible invasion.

Results after Profhilo Skin Booster Injections

Profhilo stimulates elastin and collagen production, considerably boosts skin hydration, improving the skin quality in the following ways:

  • improves the skin tone
  • increases elasticity
  • strengthens turgor
  • evens the relief
  • improves skin tightening
  • eliminates fine lines and deeper wrinkles
  • replenishes the volume loss
  • improves the complexion

Profhilo treatments can be applied both as preventative and restorative cosmetic procedures for patients in their twenties for maintaining the skin in its good condition, especially suitable for the dry skin type that ages among the first and in older age to eliminate the signs of aging and obtain healthy and glowing skin.

By the way, Profhilo skin treatments can be injected not only into facial areas but also:

  • neck
  • decollete
  • hands

as these areas also need love and care!

When can you expect the first visible results? Unlike with other treatments with hyaluronic acid, Profilo skin treatment takes a longer time to work. In approximately 4 to 6 weeks after the injections, you will be able to see the desired results.

How long does Profhilo last? As the active substance is gradually digested by the organism, it does not provide permanent results. On average, you can enjoy smooth, firm, and radiant skin for up to six months or so. After that, you should undergo the procedure again to preserve the result.

The Procedure with Profhilo Treatment

Pre-Treatment

Any injectable procedure starts with the individual consultation, where you, together with the doctor, will discuss the indications and contraindications to Profhilo treatments, results you expect to achieve, how many treatments you will need, and so on.

As this is a non-surgical treatment, it does not require any special preparation, even the allergy test is not required prior to the treatment. All you need to do is to abstain from the laser and peeling procedures on the treated area for 2 weeks, do not drink alcohol, and take blood thinners a few days before the procedure.

The Treatment

The procedure with Profhilo injectable moisturiser is an ordinary cosmetic manipulation that, on average, does not take longer than an hour of your time. The doctor will begin with preparing the skin surface for the injections, removing makeup, cleansing, and applying the numbing cream to make the process more comfortable.

When the skin is ready and the approximate injection points are marked, the doctor will start administering the solution with a fine needle for the most precise and accurate administration and distribution of the gel. When the injections are over, you can directly go and resume your ordinary activity. The treatment is quite fast and simple.

Post-Treatment

Skincare after taking Profhilo injections is simple but still requires you to be careful if you want to avoid any adverse reactions and get the best results. Thus, in the first few days after the treatment, you should:

  • avoid touching the place of injection
  • do not rub or massage the treatment area
  • avoid wearing make up
  • do not use peelings or scrubs
  • avoid physical strain
  • avoid such public places as gyms, pools
  • avoid high temperatures: steamy bath/hot shower, spa, solarium, sunbathing

These simple rules will help your organism tolerate the treatment in the best possible way and obtain a healthy-looking glowing appearance with minimal sacrifices.

Recovery after Injections with Profhilo

Injections with dermal fillers, including Profhilo, are one of the safest procedures of modern aesthetic medicine. Compared to plastic surgery, it almost does not have downtime, and many patients find injectable procedures very comfortable and safe. However, you must be aware of minor side effects that may occur as a result of skin irritation by the process of injection:

  • pain
  • redness
  • mild swelling
  • light bruising
  • tenderness
  • sensitivity
  • irritation

These are only reported side effects that, in most cases, disappear within the next few hours (max 2-3 days). If you experience any adverse reaction, severe pain, swelling, bruising, discoloration, you must immediately inform your doctor and get medical assistance. It may be a sign of possible inflammation or infection.

So, be careful and choose thoroughly the clinic and cosmetologist who will perform the treatment.
