    PROFHILO®

    Immediate action against slack and dehydrated skin

    What is PROFHILO®?

    PROFHILO® is a novel product of the Swiss company IBSA based on hyaluronic acid. With it, a regenerative effect can immediately be achieved with softened, tired and dehydrated skin ("Bio-Remodeling"). During the manufacturing process, the high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid combines to form a hybrid molecule. This thermal production process makes it possible to add no further additives for stabilization. As a result, a highly pure hyaluronic acid product is produced, which remains up to 30 times longer in the tissue and can unfold its effect there. PROFHILO® contains 64 mg of hyaluronic acid in 2 ml volume, making it one of the most concentrated hyaluronic acid products in the world.

     

    What does PROFHILO® do?

    PROFHILO® tightens and lifts the facial contours by replenishing the natural moisture-binding capacity. In addition, the production of endogenous hyaluronic acid is promoted and supports the formation of new elastin and collagen. The good tissue penetration allows rapid penetration of the skin with moisture.

    Which locations can be treated with PROFHILO®?

    • Face

    • Neck

    • Décolleté

    • Upper arms

    • Hands

     

    How does the treatment with PROFHILO® work?

    In the face, the preparation is injected at five defined injection points per half of the face with a very fine needle (BAP = Bioaesthetic Points). On the upper arms there is a 7-point scheme for the treatment of skin relaxation. It can be injected selectively on the neck, décolleté and hands or placed under the skin with a blunt cannula.

    Is the treatment with PROFHILO® painful?

    PROFHILO® is injected under the skin with a very thin needle. The puncture pain is low. There may be a slight burning sensation when the product is applied. If desired, an anesthetic cream can be applied beforehand.

     

    What must be taken into account when using PROFHILO®?

    Before the treatment should be dispensed blood thinner for at least 1 week (please ask us or your doctor). The usual skin care is possible after 12 hours. It should be waived for 14 days on natural or artificial sunbathing and sauna.

    When should no treatment with PROFHILO® be carried out?
