Profhilo® Body Protocol


The PROFHILO® BODY Protocol is one of the most sought-after treatments when it comes to targeting skin laxity of the body. PROFHILO® BODY is characterized by high and low molecular weight Stable Cooperative Hybrid Complexes (HCC) of high concentration Ultrapure Hyaluronic Acid, produced using a unique and innovative thermal production process patented by IBSA, the NAHYCO® Technology.

 

Apart from the patented injectable treatment, the protocol carries with it a take-home PROFHILO® BODY Kit for daily use. The PROFHILO® BODY Kit contains 2 PROFHILO® BODY injectable treatments, 1 pack containing 4 patches of PROFHILO® FIGURA – BODY PATCH and 1 bottle of 150ml PROFHILO® FIGURA – BODY CREAM.

 

It is the only injectable treatment specifically intended for the treatment of body skin laxity and is particularly recommended for the brachial area, abdomen and areas most affected by this condition.

HOW DOES PROFHILO® BODY WORK?

PROFHILO® BODY is a safe skin remodeling injectable with a combination of one of the highest and purest concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) available. 

PROFHILO® BODY uses patented technologies engineered for ‘skin remodeling'. It is a revolutionary concept of ‘curling’ wrinkles rather than ‘filling’ them. It effectively stimulates the production of both your natural collagen and elastin to renew your skin from within. 

 

 

WHERE CAN PROFHILO® BODY BE ADMINISTERED TO?

Other than the face, PROFHILO® BODY can also be administered to parts of the body to promote firmness, elasticity and bouncier-looking skin.

These are a few popular areas of choice:

  • Neck
  • Decollete
  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Elbows
  • Abdomen

WHAT IS NAHYCO®HYBRID TECHNOLOGY?

A Nahyco®Hybrid Technology combines High and Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid (HA) complexes in 3 phases. Making it possible to deliver high doses of hyaluronic acid, thereby improving the viscous and elastic properties of the formulation and improving its resistance to degradation. These processes result in a stable, long-lasting HA gel with a high concentration.

 

Phase 1: 32mg High molecular weight HA (1100-1400 KDa) is combined with 32mg Low molecular weight HA (80-110 KDa)

Phase 2: Through a thermal process, hydrogen bonds are broken which allow the chains of the high and low molecular weight HA to unite.

Phase 3: During the cooling process, a newly stabilised hybrid cooperative complex is formed. This stable and long-lasting HA can resists hyaluronidase (an enzyme that breaks down HA) for a longer duration. Profhilo HAs can remain in the skin for about 28days

HOW IS PROFHILO® BODY ADMINISTERED?

Be rest assured! This treatment is as comfortable as it can be. Administered with topical anesthesia, you'll barely feel a thing! Treatment to each area only required a set of strategic 10 points pinprick injections for maximal results that last a long time.

 

Each session is customized according to the severity of skin laxity and surface area of the treatment area.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE PROFHILO® BODY TREATMENT? 

The main function of PROFHILO® BODY is to reduce skin laxity and smoothen skin.

  • Tightens and firms the skin
  • Improves body contours and definition 
  • Reduces stretch marks 
  • Non-surgical and minimally invasive
  • Intensely hydrates the skin

 

You can expect, increased firmness, elasticity and overall improved quality of the skin can be visible for up to six months post-treatment, However, this does depend upon the degree of correction required, your age and lifestyle. For best results, a second treatment of 2ml is recommended one month after the first treatment. Maintenance treatments can be scheduled according to your body’s response to treatment.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED? 

For best results, we recommend injecting 4ml of Profhilo, 2ml in the initial treatment and a further 2ml one month after the first treatment. In some cases, where the signs of aging are more extreme, you may require up to 8ml of product spread over 4 treatments.
 
 

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

PROFHILO® BODY does not contain  stabilizing agents and is made using 100% pure and safe HA. Thus, PROFHILO® BODY has almost no visible side effects. However, some patients may experience mild soreness or redness of the treatment area following the treatment. Any side effects usually subside in a few hours.

IS THERE ANYTHING I NEED TO DO AFTER THE TREATMENT? 

Avoid touching the treatment area for 6 hours after the treatment. Until the initial swelling and redness have resolved, do not expose the treated area to intense heat (e.g., solarium and sunbathing) or extreme cold. You should also avoid massages on the treatment areas as well as taking part in strenuous exercise and swimming to avoid a risk of infection. 
 
 
It's also advised that you avoid alcohol for 24 hours before and after treatment. Protect your skin by applying SPF50 sunscreen and staying well hydrated. 

 

Finally, all that is left to take note of is plenty of good rest, consistently apply the products in the Profhilo® Body Kit and schedule your next visit!

WHAT CAUSES SKIN LAXITY?

As we age, genetic and environmental influences such as our lifestyle and our habits cause changes within the skin. This leads to the skin experiencing reduced skin hydration as well as alteration of collagen and elastic fibers within it. Collagen within the skin is what gives its strength and elastin gives elasticity. Losing skin laxity will cause your skin to lose its structural integrity and begin to droop.

TREATMENT PROCEDURE

Before the treatment begins, topical anesthesia is applied to the treatment area to minimize  discomfort during the injection process.

 

The PROFHILO® BODY injectable component is injected into ten specifically selected Bio Aesthetic Points (BAPs) in the treatment area. The small number of injection points ensures that efficacy through diffusion is maximized while the risk of damaging blood vessels and nerves is minimized.

 

After the treatment, the patient will receive 4 Profhilo FIGURA – BODY PATCH and one bottle (150ml) of Profhilo FIGURA – BODY CREAM to bring home. The Profhilo Figura Body Patch can be applied to soothe and hydrate the skin following the treatment. At the same time, the Profhilo Body Cream is a fast-absorbing and rich remodeling cream that complements the treatment procedure and provides deep hydration and toning.

The effects of PROFHILO® BODY treatment generally last for around 6-12 months, but this is dependent on the skin laxity level of the patient. For the best results, it is recommended to repeat PROFHILO® BODY treatments twice a year.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DERMA FILLERS & PROFHILO® BODY. 

Contrary to popular belief, PROFHILO® BODY is not a filler, skin booster or bio-stimulator. It consists mainly of ultrapure hyaluronic acid to boost hydration levels. It also addresses issues like skin laxity by stimulating collagen, elastin and adipocyte production.
 
 
Unlike other skin boosters, PROFHILO® BODY contains higher concentrations of ultrapure hyaluronic acid and provides a different function. Due to the molecular structure of Profhilo® can bio-remodel tissue by gradually releasing the hyaluronic acid. PROFHILO® BODY enhances stem cell reproduction. It restores both skin and fat layers to their natural state and stimulates the body to produce four collagen types. In turn, this creates a longer-lasting lifting effect with collagen and elastin stimulation. Unlike dermal fillers, it does not provide volume.
img_helpimprove

CAN PROFHILO® BODY BE COMBINED WITH OTHER TREATMENTS? 

PROFHILO® BODY can also be combined with other skin tightening and body sculpting treatments. Depending on your areas of concern, treatments like CoolSculpting, BTL Exilis Elite, Thermage and Total Body Care are options you can consider to go along with your PROFHILO® BODY treatment.
