In the course of natural skin aging, the production of the body’s own In the course of natural skin aging, the production of the body’s own hyaluronic acid continues to decrease. The tissue can thus store less moisture, loses its elasticity and wrinkles. The PROFHILO® procedure has a unique effect on rejuvenating the skin.
PROFHILO® is a fairly new anti-aging method that is revolutionizing the market due to its high effectiveness. The active ingredient contains a significantly higher concentration of hyaluronic acid than was previously common in injections and also differs from classic wrinkle injections in its application. In addition to the face, popular treatment areas include the neck, décolleté and upper arms.
Technical term: PROFHILO®
Type of anesthesia: none or anesthetic cream
Procedure duration (treatment time): 15-30 minutes
Hospital stay: ambulant
Aftercare: local cooling
Fit for social life: after a few hours
Fit for work: immediately
Rest period: none
Before starting the treatment, the tissue is anesthetized with a light ointment, if desired. Unlike conventional hyaluronic injections, PROFHILO® is not injected directly under the wrinkles, but is inserted into the skin at precisely defined BAP points (Bio Aesthetic Points). Thus, a “flooding” of the face or other desired areas is achieved. The tissue receives new moisture over a large area and evenly, which is more than any conventional filler can offer. As a result, wrinkles are lifted and smoothed, the skin tightens and looks fresher, younger and healthier overall.
The minimally invasive procedure takes only about 15 to 30 minutes and is rather painless. For optimal results, we recommend two sessions approximately four weeks apart.
Complications or side effects do not usually occur during treatment with PROFHILO®, as hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is also produced by the body itself. The injection is therefore particularly well tolerated by our patients. If necessary, slight swelling, redness or even slight bruising may occur after the treatment. However, these will disappear within the next few days.
Immediately after treatment, patients can resume their daily activities. The ability to socialize is also restored after a few hours, provided that no slight reddening occurs. Sporting activities should be avoided for the first few days.
The effect of PROFHILO® injections lasts for about 6 months, depending on the individual condition of the skin, and can be repeated as often as desired.
The costs of PROFHILO® treatment can vary depending on the effort and number of sessions. We discuss and agree all costs in advance with the patient. Health insurance companies do not usually cover the use of PROFHILO®, as the procedure is a purely aesthetic treatment.
