For consumers, Profhilo is one of the most popular aesthetic treatments on the market. Using unique NAHYCO technology, Profhilo helps to enhance and restore skin firmness by providing a highly effective boost of hydration. Made using a high concentration of hyaluronic acid, which is injected into the skin to bio-remodel sagging skin tissue, Profhilo is safe and highly effective for both men and women.
Unfortunately, the ongoing shortage of injectables has significantly impacted both supply and demand for Profhilo, making it increasingly difficult for clinics to get hold of. Many suppliers hold very little to no stock, and there are no real updates to suggest when stock may be more readily available.
The driving force behind supply issues
For many clinics, this global shortage is causing many clinics to face financial struggles. The industry is still recovering from the lasting impact of Covid-19, and with Brexit and inflation driving up the costs of much-needed products, and the effects of the war in Ukraine causing a ripple effect around the world, these are challenging times for many clinics trying to find a steady stream of revenue. So, what is causing these ongoing stock issues? This topic has been subject to much debate. At first, supply issues were thought to be a knock-on effect of the war in Ukraine, but now it is thought the issue lies in China, with sourcing the small glass vials injectables are shipped in.
Even when a Profhilo supplier does have stock, clinics also need to consider delivery schedules to avoid disappointing patients who may have booked in for a treatment. For many clinics, patient treatments are a source of steady income and having to cancel and rearrange appointments can be time-consuming, and disappointing for both you, and the patient.
Dr. Adams Laboratories have a constant supply of Profhilo and other injectables and offer same-day and next-day delivery to ensure you have exactly what you need, at the time you need it.
The dangers of unlicensed products
One of the major, but unspoken downsides of the global shortage is how it is, unfortunately, driving black market sales. The shortage of licensed supply means some clinics are tempted to source unlicensed products, from less reputable sources, which is incredibly dangerous.
Performing any type of injectable treatment on a patient is a medical procedure, which may carry a risk of complications. Sourcing licensed products, from a reputable source, ensure clinics have all the necessary product information and efficacy research to hand to ensure the best possible outcome for their patients.
Unfortunately, with unlicensed products, there is no guarantee that they have undergone required safety checks or meet the quality standards set out in the UK which in turn may pose a serious threat to the end patient.
Why invest in Profhilo?
Profhilo is the most in-demand and talked about skin-renewing treatment on the market today. Its popularity sees it at top of the list for non-surgical cosmetic treatments to address skin laxity and other ageing indications.
Here are six reasons you should offer Profhilo treatments in your clinic.
1. Profhilo can be used in conjunction with other treatments, or as a standalone
2. It works with the skin to support natural collagen and elastin production
3. Whilst Profhilo is an injectable, it is not a dermal filler and works to draw and bind
water within the skin to support the underlying tissue.
4. It can be used to treat other areas on the body besides the face, including the
neck, décolleté, hands, arms, and knees.
5. Profhilo only requires five injections on each side of the face, making the
downtime required following treatment minimal.
6. It is considered safer than other injectable treatments as its manufacturing
process does not employ cross-linking agents, making it completely additive-free.
