What is Profhilo Injectable Hydrator at Troy Laser Center?
Injectable Skin Hydrators like the Profhilo Injectable Hydrator are yet another type of non-surgical cosmetic procedure with a minimum downtime, addressing facial conditions due to natural aging process.
As we age, our faces naturally lose the underlying fat and the skin starts to stretch out, resulting in not just deeper wrinkles and folds, but sunken and hollow appearance. Skin often shows signs of laxity but also dehydration, looking dull and tired. Profhilo uses patented technology with low and high molecular hyaluronic acid that has been thermally cross-linked. The technology results in improved longevity and stabilization while allowing for slow long-lasting release of dual-action (low and high molecular) hyaluronic acid. The dual action , in turn, allows for bioremodeling of skin laxity ( over time, the hyaluronic acid stimulates not only your own hyaluronic acid, but 4 types of collagen and elastin). Profhilo has shown to be very effective in reversing signs of facial aging, but also hands, neck, and decolletage. Results from injectable skin hydrators vary, depending on the brand used, the area to be treated, and, of course, the skill of the injecting physician.
Injectable Skin Hydrators (Profhilo) at Troy Laser Center are administered exclusively by board-certified physician Dr. Kenneth Wolok, who comes with 15 years of hands-on experience in injecting a wide-range of facial fillers and skin injectables.

What it treats
Profhilo treats early signs of facial aging as well as neck, decolletage, and aging skin on the hands :
- The thermally cross-linked hyaluronic acid in Profhilo rehydrates and retexturizes crepey skin
- It stimulates not only release of your own hyaluronic acid in the skin, but also 4 different types of collagen and elastin, resulting in plumper skin with lesser lines
- The slow release of hyaluronic acid allows for improved skin laxity
- Skin is dewy, glowing, radiant with overall youthful appearance
Profhilo is administered by injection following a specified technique of 5 bio aesthetic injectable points on each side of the face to maximize product diffusion. Prior to the actual injection, a topical and an injectable numbing solution might be applied for additional patient comfort. Depending on the facial areas (or body parts) being treated and the amount of Profhilo required for an optimum outcome, the procedure itself can take anywhere from 20-30 minutes.
Recovery time & side effects
Profhilo injectable skin hydrator comes with minimal recovery. The most common and temporary side effects are swelling at injection site (less than 12 hours) and potential minimal bruising at the injection side, lasting, on average, 3 to 4 days. Certain medications and health conditions can possibly worsen the swelling and/or bruising; our aesthetician will discuss any of the pre-existing conditions and provide pre- and post-treatment recommendations during the initial complimentary cosmetic consultation.
Results from Profhilo injectable hydrator/ biorevitalizer vary depending on the actual condition of the skin, the level of laxity,and the patient’s age among other factors. Unlike dermal fillers, Profhilo injectable biorevitalizer works in the skin over period of time, gradually releasing hyaluronic acid into the skin. Patients experience dewy and glowing skin, but to reap the full benefits Profhilo requires 2 initial visits spaced 4 weeks apart and 1 session at 6 months . Maintenance treatments recommended every 3-6 months, depending on the level of skin laxity. The longevity of Profhilo also will very per individual case , the condition of the skin prior to the treatment, and the area being treated, but it has been shown, on average, to last up to 6 months and beyond.
Here’s how your Profhilo injectable skin treatment will work.
How does Profhilo Injectable Hydrator Work and What To Expect During My Visit at Troy Laser Center?
Profhilo injectable skin hydrator/biorevitalizer is based on an injectable hyaluronic acid gel ( a sugar molecule naturally occuring in human skin) – thermally cross-linked low and high molecular hyaluronic acid with slow release capability, resulting in increased stability and longevity. The stable and slow release of hyaluronic acid (HA) increases levels of 4 types of collagen and elastin, improving the skin’s overall quality and giving it a more youthful appearance. To reap the full benefits of Profhilo injectable biorevitalizer, 2 initial treatment sessions at 4 weeks apart and 1 session at 6 months are required.
During the initial complimentary cosmetic consultation, our cosmetic physician evaluates the patient's facial anatomy and structure as well as patient's expectations and desires. Based on the outcome, recommendations are made that will produce the best aesthetic results.
Since hyaluronic acid is a naturally occuring substance, Profhilo is suitable for just about any patient. Once injected into the skin, the slow release of thermally cross-linked hyaluronic acid begins the process of collagen and elastin stimulation. This results in youthful, glowy, dewy, and overall younger looking skin. Depending on the areas being injected and the amount needed, the injections take about 20-30 min.
The longevity of the injectable skin hydrator also will very per individual case, the condition of the skin prior to administering Profhilo, as well as the area to be treated, but it has been shown, on average, to be lasting up to 1 year.
