This is an injectable skin bio-remodelling treatment that stimulates the production of collagen and elastin and helps to significantly improve tissue quality and hydration. Profhilo is a BDDE free (chemical cross linking agent) stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid that boosts skin hydration while remodelling the skin. With a concentration of 64 mg/2ml of hyaluronic acid, it remains in the skin for 28 days and stimulates 4 different types of collagen and elastin, Type I and III Collagen in fibroblast, and type IV and VII collagen in keratinocytes. Profhilo is thermally cross linked with a low inflammatory profile resulting in a hybrid complex of high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid which modulate tissue. It is not a dermal filler and is more appealing to patients who do not which to have traditional dermal fillers or volumization. Treatment is comfortable and results in improved skin quality, skin hydration and endogenous hyaluronic acid and elastin production.
To Maximize diffustion, the BAP (bio aesthetic point) were specifically chosen in 5 injection sites per side of the face to repeated in a second treatment 1 month apart. Topical anesthetic can be used. Transient erythema, pain, itching, discoloration or tenderness can occur. Patients that are breast feeding, pregnant or with a known hypersensitivity to hyaluronic acid should not use this treatment.
