Description ( Overview)
When it comes to skin rejuvenation our newest skin remodeling treatment Profhilo, is proving to be a real game changer in the world of aesthetics. Profhilo is a revolutionary new non-surgical skin laxity treatment that addresses facial lines and wrinkles, but also skin laxity, improving tone, texture and hydration. The treatment is aimed at patients who have visible signs of ageing skin.
As we age, our skin produces less collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are the building blocks which make up plumped up healthy skin. Profhilo uses advanced patented technologies to help remodel the skin. It is made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA). It effectively stimulates the production of natural collagen and elastin to re-energise and renew the skin. It stimulates four different types of collagen and elastin due to the slow release of hyaluronic acid, and it is this stimulation that results in significant improvement of tissue quality. Profhilo, at present, is the only product capable of stimulating the natural production of all four types of collagen and elastin, making it truly unique.
With visible results in as little as 2 visits, Profhilo continues to be a fantastic choice for those wanting to combat ageing, dull or tired looking skin and loss of facial volume.
Why Profhilo Is Reguired ?
We start losing a significant amount of collagen, elastin and Hyaluronic Acid after we reach 30, which means we start to see the signs of ageing in the form of fine lines, wrinkles and slightly lack-lustre skin. At this age, we should start to consider preserving ourselves, therefore Profhilo is advised for individuals from around the age of 30 upwards, who wish to target ageing skin.
Profhilo is also an excellent choice for you if you don’t want to add volume to specific areas (if this is the case, it is more likely that dermal fillers would be the right treatment for you), as it instead provides volume and hydration across the skin, giving an overall rejuvenated appearance.
There is no age upper limit either. In fact, in older patients, we have often seen more dramatic results. However, if you’re over 60 your treatment does need to be managed carefully – for example, if there are deep folds present or the skin has lost elasticity, then combination treatments that include Profhilo may be more suitable. This is why consultation prior to treatment is so important!
If you’re looking for very subtle results, this treatment delivers. However, if you’re looking for a lifting of the face, neck or any other area, then a combination approach with fillers, threads or surgery could be recommended.
Why Iran Is Suitable For Profhilo?
Patient Eligibility \ Who Can Have Profhilo ?
Profhilo is a truly universal treatment, suitable for patients in their late 20s and older. So there are two distinct categories for Profhilo patients. Specifically:
- Preventative: Younger patients from late 20s and older who are keen to maintain and stimulate the body’s natural cell renewal cycles, producing fresher, clearer, glowing skin
- Restorative: More mature patients who wish to address existing depletion, including lost significant suppleness and firmness, increased laxity, noticeable dullness and creases in the skin
For both patient categories, Profhilo results include skin that is:
- in need of much less makeup
- a better ‘canvas’ for any makeup to sit better on the skin.
How Is Profhilo Done? (Procedures)
Unlike Dermal Fillers, Profhilo does not add volume, think of it more as a huge boost of hydration from within. This injectable treatment has a very high concentration of HA which is injected into the skin through five different key points on each side of the face. A unique aesthetic treatment, Profhilo works in stages which requires two treatments with a four-week interval. You will see results instantly after the second treatment. Profhilo remains in the skin for around 28 days after, working hard to stimulate four different types of collagen and elastin as it slowly releases hyaluronic acid. Within the first few weeks you will see intense hydration, smoother and tighter skin and a glowing complexion.
Preparation & Recovery
Please don’t drink any alcohol during the 24 hours before your treatment. We also advise that you avoid using aspirin or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs a couple of days before your treatment (unless they are taken for a chronic medical condition). Avoiding these medications will reduce your risk of bruising at the point of injection. Ask your medical practitioner if you have any concerns.
Side Effects and Aftercare
No recovery time is required and you can return to your daily activities immediately .
-Use a cold pack to reduce swelling and / or redness
– Do not massage or manipulate the treated area

Risks & Complication
As with any injectable treatment there are minor risks, including bruising and swelling, as well as infection, allergic reaction, vascular compromise and nerve damage; although IBSA (the pharmacy that makes Profhilo) claims these are rare.
There is a risk of bumps/lumps at the entry points and bruising as well but the probability of this is very low, most people leave the surgery without the slightest sign of having just had a needle go into their face 10 times.
