Frequently Asked Questions
PROFHILO® is not a dermal filler, it is different from all other injectable substances as it has been engineered for “skin bio remodelling”. It is biocompatible because it is composed of highly pure grade hyaluronic acid produced by bio fermentation. This fantastic treatment enables effective production of both your natural collagen and also your elastin which enables your skin to renew successfully, from within. Due to its intensively high purity and the absence of additives, PROFHILO® offers greater safety and therefore reduced side effects.
The down time is very minimal. The redness and swelling after treatment will generally subside within a couple of hours or maximum, up to one day.
It is recommended to have 2 sessions (one month apart) to achieve the maximum results. However, if the skin problems are severe, the third session could be done 2 months after the second session.
In order to maintain the results, one treatment session is advised every 6 months.
The results are usually seen after two quick treatment sessions, with a one month interval between them. An increased firmness, elasticity and an overall improved quality of the skin is seen after the two treatments. Maintenance sessions are required 6-12 monthly depending on the degree of correction required, your age and lifestyle.
