PROFHILO® is manufactured by IBSA Farmaceutici Italia in a U.S. FDA approved site in Italy, and distributed in the UK & Ireland by HA-Derma Ltd.
It is the first stabilised hyaluronic acid (HA) based product which is manufactured without the use of chemical cross-linking agents (BDDE) and is used for skin remodelling and treating skin laxity, not for just filling lines and wrinkles. According to the makers, it delivers dramatic improvement in tissue quality, even in challenging areas, and is complementary to other aesthetic treatments and dermal filler procedures.
It is considered to be safe, effective and “a true breakthrough” in anti-ageing medicine.
What does Profhilo contain?
IBSA’s hyaluronic acid is an ultrapure grade hyaluronic acid, produced through a patented bio-fermentation process, of Streptococcus Zooepidemicus, which ranks worldwide as “top quality” in terms of purity, safety and its high resistance to thermal production processes.
The formulation of HA with different molecular weights contained in PROFHILO is based on a concept of Hydrolift® Action. This innovative approach is aimed at counteracting the physiological reduction of HA in the skin, restoring hydration, elasticity and skin tone, by associating, in a synergistic way, deep hydration with the mechanical action of lifting the skin.
Duration of the effect:
The effect of Profhilo H+L dermal filler is non-permanent because the hyaluronic acid is completely broken down within the skin eventually leaving no trace of the filler. Usually the effect lasts about six months, but this period is determined by many factors such as skin type, age, lifestyle, the degree of correction required, the technique used by the practitioner, etc.
For best results, two initial sessions are recommended, performed in one-month interval. After that further top up treatments may be prescribed to maintain the desired effect.
Minor side effects can occur at the implanted site in the form of discoloration, tenderness, itching, redness or discomfort. They disappear within several days after treatment. Profhilo H + L
