Over time, our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid. As a result, our skin loses its elasticity and tone; it becomes slack and small wrinkles form. Profhilo® is an innovative new treatment method to counter this process.
Unlike conventional hyaluronic acid treatments, this method relies on a far higher concentration of the active ingredient. The treatment, and an amended version of its application, can achieve outstanding results, leaving the skin on the face, neck, décolleté and upper arms visibly younger and refreshed. We also offer this relatively new method at the prevention-center in Zurich – with considerable success.
Profhilo® is a multi-award-winning, minimally invasive method to rejuvenate skin using hyaluronic acid. It involves injecting a high concentration of the active substance at specific points in the treated area to nourish the entire area with moisture. This leaves the skin firmer and smoother; it minimises wrinkles and leaves skin looking fresher, healthier and younger.
Unlike conventional treatments, Profhilo® is based on the widespread effects of hyaluronic acid. As a result, the substance is not injected directly under the wrinkles but at specific locations. In a facial treatment, ultra-fine needles are used to inject the substance at five precisely defined locations on each side of the face. This can vary in other areas: for example, when treating so-called “bingo wings” – sagging skin under the upper arms – we inject the substance at seven locations. By contrast, neck treatments require ten injections at specific locations to ensure that the positive effects spread across the entire neck. You can also book a massage after the treatment to ensure that the substance is evenly distributed.
The substance spreads out evenly from these bio-aesthetic points (BAPs) across a large area of tissue, which also allows it to achieve more extensive results. Its effect lie in supplying the skin with badly needed moisture and stimulating the body’s natural production of elastin and collagen.
At the prevention-center in Zurich, we provide the treatment on an outpatient basis, with each session lasting 15-30 minutes. This method is almost painless, so anaesthesia is not usually required.
