Profhilo® is a new discovery in facial ageing, addressing skin laxity and restoring firmness in a natural way by stimulating your own collagen and elastin production.
The first treatment of its kind to ‘renew your skin from within’, not only hydrating but tightening sagging and crepey skin and smoothing away lines and wrinkles.
Containing one of the highest concentrations Hyaloronic Acid on the market, its patented technology nourishes your own dermal cells and encourages new collagen formation. This ‘skin remodeller’ is a game changer in the world of aesthetics, winning Product Innovation of the Year at the Aesthetic Awards. Due to the way Profhilo® has been made, it acts as a hydrator rather than a filler, and is therefore fantastic for those with tired, dull and ageing skin as it creates more luminous skin and a radiant complexion.
Profhilo® can be used in a number of areas to address multiple ageing concerns, for example:
Full face, including smokers lip lines and eye area
Profhilo® is suitable for any age patient, male or female.
“A true breakthrough in anti-ageing medicine.”
What can I expect from a Profhilo® treatment?
The procedure consists of two separate treatment sessions, 4 weeks apart, as this has been shown to be the most effective way to activate your own cells production of elastin and collagen.
5 specific injection points are used (BAP technique) on each side of the face, 10 injections in total, using a small needles and very superficial injection into the skin only. For neck treatments there are several superifical injections to the skin, down the left and right sides and centrally. For some specific areas, we may use a cannula to inject the product.
This same treatment is then repeated 1 month later. Following this patients can then either choose to have one treatment every 3 months or repeat the double treatment every 6 months.
Patients report improved skin condition and reduction in lines within 1 month and dramatic results are seen up to 6 months later.
“Major advance for difficult to treat areas.”
What are the side effects?
As with any injection, patients may experience some discomfort and/ or bruising, although this is generally mild. There may be a slight stinging sensation as the product is injected.
Small visible lumps at the injection site occur, and can remain for 3-24 hours post procedure. This is normal and part of the Profhilo® technology.
“A real game changer.”
What is the difference between Profhilo® and dermal fillers?
Whilst both contain a form of Hyaluronic Acid, Profhilo® is structured in a different way, so it doesn’t provide volume and isn’t used to alter the structure of the face. For example when injected dermal fillers, they are used to target a specific area of volume loss, i.e cheeks, lips, however Profhilo® is not a volumising treatment, it targets skin laxity and creping lines, as well as improving complexion.
