Profhilo is the first bio-remodelling “injectable skincare” that uses hyaluronic acid to address skin laxity and signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles through the bio-stimulation of collagen, elastin, and adipocyte stem cells that are lost through skin ageing. It is an injectable treatment that hydrates the skin and bio-remodels sagging skin by encouraging fat tissue renewal. Profhilo also has a lifting and skin tightening effect.
Profhilo developed and uses the Bio Aesthetic Point (BAP) application technique for the face and neck. The 5 BAPs are selected areas of the face that have no large blood vessels or nerve branches. With 5 injection points on each side of the face, the procedure is quick with minimal discomfort.

Most patients are able to continue with their usual activities immediately after treatment.

A small bump at the injection site may be observed immediately after the procedure. It should resolve in a few hours as the product diffuses and spreads under the skin.
