Profhilo is an exclusive skin remodelling treatment designed for individuals with ageing skin that is lacking volume and elasticity. By stimulating the production of collagen and elastin through the slow release of hyaluronic acid, Profhilo significantly improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and helps to increase skin hydration and firmness.
What is Profhilo?
Profhilo is an ultra-pure injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) based product for treating skin laxity. It has one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market, boosting and hydrating the skin, remodelling the skin and improving sagging tissues. It works effectively on its own, or as a complementary treatment alongside other aesthetic procedures such as anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers.
How does it work?
Profhilo works by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin by slowly releasing HA. Collagen and elastin boost the appearance of skin tone and quality, as well as having a tightening and lifting effect on the tissue.
Who is Profhilo suitable for?
Profhilo helps to minimise the signs of ageing by nourishing skin cells, restoring firmness, and reducing crêpey skin by hydrating it from the inside out. It can be used in the face, neck and décolletage. For younger people with less volume loss and minimal signs of ageing, Profhilo is a beautiful preventative treatment. For older people with more visible signs of ageing, Profhilo strengthens the body’s collagen and elastin, and increases the skin’s hydration. Fillers are then perfectly placed to replace significant volume loss or deep folds. In such cases, Profhilo is the scaffolding for fillers to be based on, with fewer filler treatments required to achieve the desired effect.
What does the treatment involve?
A course of Profhilo involves two injectable treatments, four weeks apart. There are 5 injections on either side of the face (or 10 points on the neck) at points specifically chosen to target problematic areas, lower the possibility of bruising and swelling, reduce the number of treatments needed, and minimise the pain caused.
What results can I expect?
There is a gradual increase in skin hydration, and improvement in fine lines and tightness of the skin. After about 8 weeks there is maximal lift, tightening, hydration, and youthfulness. There is improved firmness, elasticity and overall quality of the skin. HA is naturally degraded by the body so effects are temporary, with results lasting for about six months, sometimes longer. Further treatment consists of either one or two sessions, 4 weeks apart, to maintain the improvements seen with Profhilo.
It is perfect for individuals seeking treatment for crepey skin or fine lines under the eyes, wrinkles around the mouth, overall dry or lax skin, crepey skin on the neck, and those wishing to subtly plump out their skin without using dermal fillers.
What are the side effects?
As with any injectable treatment, there is a risk of bleeding, bruising and swelling at the injection sites. This resolves within a few hours to days. Downtime is usually very minimal.
