Profhilo® Structura

We are thrilled to be one of the first clinics in the UK to stock and provide this new treatment from Profhilo. The Ageless Team enjoyed Profhilo's launch event and in house training in June 2024. 

What is Profhilo® Structura?

Profhilo® Structura is a groundbreaking injectable treatment designed to lift, contour, and rejuvenate the facial
profile by targeting superficial fat layers.

2 session are recommended 4 weeks apart

By regenerating and repositioning these fat layers, Profhilo® Structura counteracts the natural flattening of facial
angles and tissue descent that occur over time. The result is a more lifted, naturally contoured profile without
obvious projections or the appearance of artificial enhancements.

Why is superficial facial fat important? :

 Superficial fat provides essential volume and support to the skin, helping to maintain a naturally lifted appearance. As we age, the face loses the triangle of youth and begins to "square out" Youthful Contours: The natural placement of superficial fat plays a vital role ni highlighting youthful contours, including a defined jawline and sculpted cheeks. Over time, the gradual redistribution and depletion of this fat can result ni sagging and hollowed areas, even eroding natural symmetry.

Wrinkle Reduction: Superficial facial fat cushions the skin, reducing the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines. As this fat diminishes, the underlying skin and connective tissue lose support, causing the skin to sag and become more prone to creasing, wrinkling, and the formation of folds. 

What happens to superficial facial fat as it ages?

 As we age, specialised cells in our fat, known as adipose progenitor and stem cells (APSCs), lose their ability to create new fat cells. This leads to the breakdown of existing fat cells and a buildup of old, inactive cells that release inflammatory substances, accelerating inflammation and other age-related issues. Additionally, disrupted communication between cells in this fat layer results in an unhealthy accumulation of immune cells and reduces the body's capacity to produce hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin. These key substances are essential for keeping the skin hydrated, firm, and elastic. Consequently, the degradation of superficial fat hastens the overall aging process, significantly affecting skin quality and health. What is the science? Profhilo® Structura is uniq uely formulated to work harmoniously with superficial fat tissue. Its specific composition and concentration enhance this integration and compatibility. It is developed using patented NAHYCO® technology, which stabilises a distinct complex of high and low­ molecular-weight hyaluronic acid. This thermal process removes the need for the chemical cross-linkers that are commonly required in other hyaluronic acid formulations and fillers, ensuring a purer product. Once injected, Profhilo® Structura activates ageing adipose fat cell receptors, subtly and safely encouraging them to mimic the behaviour of their youth.

What results can patients expect?

Profhilo® Structura is clinically proven to restore superficial fat to its original position, effectively tackling age-related concerns like pronounced facial hollows, skin laxity, and the development of a squarer facial shape resulting from midface fat loss. 95% of patients noticed lasting enhancements in the mid-face area after the first treatment. This improvement was sustained three months later, highlighting the lasting benefits of Profhilo® Structura. Profhilo® Structura is a natural and regenerative option for those desiring subtle enhancements without drastically altering their appearance. Beyond addressing age-related facial shifts, it can also restore lost facial fat due to rapid weight loss, including effects from using weight loss pens. 

What happens at a Profhilo® STRUCTURA treatment?

A Profhilo® Structura treatment consists of two sessions, administered one month apart. Profhilo® Structura is injected in the preauricular area - the upper cheek region - using a protocol that evaluates facial structure, including midface projection, hollow s, laxity, and skin density.

How do Profhilo® and Profhilo® Structura differ?

Profhilo® and Profhilo® Structura have different rheological properties and benefits. Profhilo® is injected into the dermis where it is clinically proven to provide tissue restoration without volumisation. It does this by waking up dormant fibroblast tissue to regenerate collagen and elastin, visibly improving the skin's firmness, texture, and hydration. Profhilo® Structura, on the other hand, is designed for deeper structural remodeling and is injected into the subcutaneous layers. It is clinically proven to reposition and regenerate the dynamic superficial fat pads located beneath the skin and connective tissue, and above the muscle and deep fat layers. Its advanced compatibility with fat cells helps counteract the flattening of facial angles and tissue descent that naturally occurs over time, resulting in a more lifted, contoured, and rejuvenated facial profile. Both treatments offer unique benefits tailored to different skin concerns and treatment areas, ensuring a comprehensive approach to skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing.

Is Profhilo® Structura a filler or skin booster?

Profhilo® Structura represents a unique category of advanced injectable treatments that specifically target and restore facial fat for natural, restorative and regenerative solution. Unlike fillers that offer II mechanical II lifting and volumising effects, Profhilo® Structura adopts a restorative approach that the body recognizes, controlling inflammation and providing subtle repositioning without triggering a 1foreign body1 effect. Unlike skin boosters, which are injected into the upper layers of the skin to enhance radiance with less concentrated hyaluronic acid, Profhilo® Structura specifically targets the midface superficial fat. This tissue layer requires a treatment that is both biocompatible and bioavailable with its unique cellular function and ageing process.
