Why ProfHilo isn’t really A dermal Filler

Let me explain this a bit. Profhilo is not really a dermal filler nor a mesotherapy product, but a product of its own unique kind. Priding itself on natural stability, Profhilo does not require any chemical stabilisation.

Profhilo treats skin that lacks tightness, in other words, the looseness that develops as we age.

But what makes it different? Profhilo is completely BDDE free. BDDE short for 1,4-butanediol diglycidyl, the magical ingredient binds the whole hyaluronic acid chain together to stop them from being broken down in the body. BDDE is a synthetic, so a chemical in nature and one that many patients would prefer to avoid having injected into their skin.

With no chemical cross-linking present, how is Profhilo able to stabilise its Hyaluronic acid? Cleverly, using a special patented thermal process, it creates new hydrogen bonds, after breaking its existing natural bonds.

There are two types of hyaluronic acid supported by these hydrogen bonds: high molecular weight Hyaluronic acid and low molecular weight Hyaluronic acid. The former’s role is to hold the skin together, whilst the latter hydrates and stimulates the dermal layers.

Profhilo’s biocompatibility with skin is much higher due to it being stabilised without the for BDDE.

Patients are usually recommended to have two treatments about four-six weeks apart.

After the first treatment, lines have already started to disappear and skin appears tighter, less saggier. The facelift appears fresher and uplifted. Years come off just like that! Following the second treatment, the face is magnificently transformed back in time. Clients look a lot more healthier and vibrant. Skin laxity is no longer an issue.

Profhilo can work its magic for at least six- twelve months and is not designed to replace volume, but to improve elasticity and firmness. Patients need to understand that even the most adamant wrinkle cannot be fixed by treatment after treatment, which often creates an over-volumised appearance. Profhilo can magically fix wrinkles without having to subject the patient to too many dermal filler treatments.

Hence, we can see why Profhilo is not exactly a dermal filler. Think of it as a much needed hydrating agent that irons out wrinkles, whilst dispersing hyaluronic acid through the skin as a skinbooster that gets elastin production back in order again.

A wrinkle cure, that turns back the clock, restoring natural beauty that has been lost over the years, Profhilo is a revolutionary product that will only lead the way to inspire more chemical-free stabilising methods to fruit within the skin treatment industry.
