So What is the difference between Profhilo and other more traditional Dermal Filler?
The main difference is the type of Hyaluronic acid used.
The type of HA used in dermal filler injections is thicker and more viscous than the runny consistency of Profhilo injections. And the HA that you’ll find in fillers is combined with other ingredients, unlike the highly concentrated and purified HA used for Profhilo. So, whilst hyaluronic acid is the main most important ingredient in both injectables, the HA used for each is actually pretty different.
They Work Differently
Once the hyaluronic acid dermal fillers have been administered, the product stays in the place it was injected. But this is different with Profhilo . Once the Profhilo injections have been administered the HA starts to disperse underneath the skin, spreading across the whole face.
They are used in Different Areas
During a dermal filler treatment, only specific areas of the face are targeted – like the cheeks, deep wrinkles and lips. And whilst you can go back and have multiple filler treatments, only one area is focused on at a time. But, Profhilo treatment isn’t restricted to just one place. What Profhilo actually does is plump, refresh and tighten the skin in the whole face. Profhilo cannot increase or add volume to any specific areas and the results are much more subtle.
