A new technique to combat aging and sagging skin joins the portfolio of therapies offered by the Skinpulse dermatology center in Geneva.
The Profhilo ® treatment, unique in its kind, aims to bio-remodel and tone your skin and its tissues by injecting mini doses of hyaluronic acid (HA) hybrid complex.
What is Profhilo ®?
Profhilo® is a revolutionary injectable product based on hyaluronic acid (HA) without the addition of other chemical additives. Launched in 2015, it is used to treat sagging skin and stimulate skin regeneration. Unlike usual classic fillers, it has the ability to bio-remodel the skin by stimulating the synthesis of fibroblasts and adipocyte cells, which allows hydration, an increase in skin tone and a ” plumping » underlying subcutaneous tissues.
Which areas can be treated with Profhilo ®?
Basically, a treatment with Profhilo® could be used in any areas where the skin needs a “cooling off”. The body parts mainly suggested by us to benefit from this new bio-remodeling technology are among others:
- The face
- The neck
- The neckline
- The hands
- And in some cases the arms ( bat effect)
How does the therapeutic gesture take place?
After disinfecting the chosen area, Profhilo® is injected using very fine needles. A 0.2 ml dose of Profhilo® is scrupulously injected into several specifically selected bio-aesthetic points (BAP), thus allowing a natural distribution of the product. This technique is highly safe and allows a massive reduction in the risk of damage to blood vessels and nerves.
Once administered, the product immediately begins to distribute evenly to the different tissue layers and begins its role as a regenerative bio-remodeling agent.
Immediately after the treatment, you can usually resume your usual daily life.
The treatment usually consists of at least two sessions at an interval of 4 weeks. The stability of the results is assessed over 6 – 12 months.
Are there any side effects?
The absence of additives is synonymous with better tolerance and drastically minimizes the possible risk of adverse effects, particularly allergies. From the point of view of the injections themselves, as with any treatment with an injectable product, bruises (bruises) as well as redness may appear temporarily. These will disappear spontaneously in a few days.
