On this course, we train Doctors, Dentists, Nurses, Pharmacists, Paramedics, Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Dental Hygienists, Dental Therapists and Operating Department Practitioners. The course requirement is at least 3 months experience in using dermal filler.

Join the leading aesthetics specialist, Dr Michael Aicken, on his comprehensive masterclass on how to safely and effectively administer Profhilo. Profhilo is used to stimulate the body’s natural elastin and collagen production. Our new, exciting Profhilo training course is aimed at advanced aesthetic practitioners already offering dermal filler treatments, with at least six months’ experience.

What does this masterclass cover?

We have two course options, depending on your previous skills and training: online, or online plus a one hour practical. Whether hydrating the skin or remodeling aging and sagging tissue, this intense course is aimed at advanced dermal filler users. It will help you extend your portfolios and offer elevated treatment options to satisfy clients. They will look and feel amazing with this popular treatment.

What is Profhilo and who is it for?

The first of its kind, Profhilo® is a revolutionary ‘beneath the skin’ hyaluronic acid (HA) moisturising treatment. It’s made with the patented NAHYCO® technology. This results in a unique hyaluronic acid injectable gel, which has a prolonged stimulating activity on the dermal cells. When injected into skin, Profhilo stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity, improving and restoring the firmness of the skin. Containing one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market (64 mg / 2 ml), it not only boosts and hydrates the skin, but also remodels ageing and sagging tissue.

The most common areas of treatment include the face and neck, and it can also be used for the décolletage, hands, arms, knees, and abdomen area where it would effectively treat skin laxity. The treatment is suitable for men and women, as well as offering skin benefits for patients of all ages. Patients can achieve excellent results from this treatment on its own; however you can also be combine this with other aesthetics treatments.

How does Profhilo work?

The are being treated is precisely injected with ultra-pure hyaluronic acid. Unlike wrinkle reducing and dermal filler treatments, Profhilo stimulates collagen and elastin. This attracts water in the deeper layers of the skin. As a stabilised product, the activity on dermal cells will last longer than that of a non-stabilised gel. During this time stimulation of four different types of collagen and elastin occurs by the slow release of hyaluronic acid. The stimulation results in significant tissue improvement. Therefore, we cannot say that Profhilo is only a skin booster. It also has a significant tightening / lifting effect on the tissue.
