Profhilo is not designed to add volume but to boost and hydrate the skin, remodeling the aging and sagging tissue.
Besides its high content of hyaluronic acid, Profhilo has a low inflammatory profile combined with pro-healing properties. This treatment can be used in areas which are difficult to treat with, such as the neck and forehead, as for Profhilo distributes evenly and smoothly, without the formation of lumps.
