Profhilo is a safe skin remodelling injectable with a combination of one of the highest and purest concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) available.
Although commonly known for treating the face, Profhilo Body can be used to treat the body as well. It helps treat skin ageing and has been designed for tissue remodelling and reducing skin laxity, best suited for the inner arms and abdominal areas.
Contrary to popular belief, Profilo 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.
