Hi everyone, today I am excited to introduce the newest launch from HADERMA - the company behind the popular injectable treatment Profhilo. Introducing Profhilo Structura!! This innovative treatment is alteady a firm favourite of patients at The Medi-Shed.The Profhilo® Structura patient is just like you and me.... our inspiration isn't social media; its that summer holiday photo from 10 years ago when we looked genuinely happy, rested, fresh-faced, and vibrant:) Both types of profhilo are key players in regenerative aesthetic medicine.



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.


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.


So the midface (our cheeks) plays a pivotal role in achieving facial harmony and youthful vitality, yet many patients are nervous about the fillers commonly used in this area. Profhilo® Structura is the first injectable treatment to naturally address midface rejuvenation by uniquely restoring facial fat, challenging conventional approaches with transformative and natural-looking results that continue to redefine beauty standards.


By stimulating natural fat regeneration, Profhilo® Structura has the potential to delay or even eliminate the need for traditional fillers with some patients, empowering them to explore more natural approaches to facial rejuvation.



Importance of superficial facial fat



Volume and Structure: 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 in highlighting youthful contours, including a defined jawline and sculpted cheeks. Over time, the gradual redistribution and depletion of this fat can result in sagging and hollowed areas which can be an issue for some people.

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 loose support, causing the skin to sag and become more prone to creasing, wrinkling, and the formation of folds.



Ageing and superficial fat



As we age, specialised cells in our fat loose their ability to create new fat cells. This leads to the breakdown of existing fat cells and a build up 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 ageing process, significantly affecting skin quality and health.



The science behindProfhilo® Structura



Profhilo® Structura is uniquely formulated to work harmoniously with superficial fat tissue. Its specific composition and concentration enhance this integration and compatibility.

Developed using patented NAHYCO® technology, Profhilo® Structura stabilises a distinct complex of high and low­ molecular-weight hyaluronic acid. 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 ar ea 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.



What to expect during 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, hollows, laxity, and skin density. There is minimal downtime with the treatment and patients can go about their day with ease after an appointment. A cannula ( blunt ended needle is used for this treatment.


How Profhilo® and Profhilo® Structura differ?


Profhilo® and Profhilo® Structura have different rheological properties and benefits.

Profhilo® is injected into the dermis (skin) 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. A thorough consultation would determine which particular treatment is best for you - some patients can have both if needed.


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 mechanical lifting and volumising effects, Profhilo® Structura adopts a restorative approach that the body recognises, controlling inflammation and providing subtle repositioning without triggering a foreign body 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.



Conclusion


So in conclusion... fat is back, and Profhilo® Structura is leading the charge!

Profhilo® Structura is a game-changer in aesthetics. Its innovative approach to restoring facial fat through natural regeneration represents a paradigm shift in non-invasive treatments. This treatment embodies the future of facial enhancement."


Fat gets fit with Profhilo® Structura!

Hi everyone,


I am delighted to share with you the news that The Medi-Shed 2.0 is now officially open! The restoration of this listed building has taken 9 months to give it back it's original glow. It has been a LABOUR OF LOVE and taking it on in it's negelcted state was a very scary decision! However it's all complete now for us all to enjoy. Below is a snapshot of the interiors styled with 'Alice in Wonderland' in mind:)





Did you know? that The Medi-Shed 2.0 used to be a dispensing chemist in the olden days.

Built in the mid nineteenth century, the terrace is Grade Il listed and has so much history within the building. One of the features that attracted me to this building was the original listed sign 'Prescriptions Prepared' (I'm prescribing all day!) in a building that was really neglected. I used to pass this building daily on the school run as we used to live down the road. The shelving is all original and we had many debates to work out what to do with them - in the end this is what I decided in the picture above. We have tried to restore and display as many original features as possible to make this building shine again and have been overwhelmed by the local support and praise. The apothecary bottles displayed are all original and there are boxes and boxes of them! Two jars we found even has my name on it - 'DIL' (probably short for dilutions!) so this property was meant for me:)
