What is Profhilo?
Profhilo is a unique, injectable hyaluronic acid gel. It provides one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid available on the market. It hydrates and lifts the skin, to reduce the effects of ageing and restore youthful radiance.
What are the benefits of Profhilo?
Profhilo doesn’t just give the skin a boost of hydration, but actually lifts the skin to give an incredibly rejuvenating effect. Treatment with Profhilo improves skin tone, texture, hydration and overall radiance. It can help to increase firmness, elasticity and promote healthier softer-looking skin. It achieves this through the stimulation of collagen and elasticity. Profhilo is most commonly used for facial areas, but can also be used to rejuvenate the neck, decollete, arms, knees and hands.
What does the treatment involve?
Profhilo involves 10 injections into the skin just below the surface, over 2 sessions 4 weeks apart. After this, you can expect to see intense hydration. It makes the skin glow, fine lines can disappear and you’ll notice smoother tighter skin. Courses of two treatments can be repeated every six months as needed to maintain the results.
How long does it last and is there any downtime?
The downtime following treatment is minimal, and you should be able to return to normal ‘light’ daily activities immediately after your procedure. However, like all treatments, it is wise to consider that you’ve just had treatment before you go ahead with all and any activities.
Like most treatments, longevity does vary between individuals, but results are expected to be gained over a period of 4-6 weeks and last for approximately 6 months. If you choose not to maintain the results with further treatment, your skin will return to its pretreatment state over time.
Are the results instant?
Patients may feel an immediate improvement thanks to the hydrating effect, but it can take a few weeks before the real results of treatment start to be noticed – as the Profhilo encourages the body to produce its own anti-ageing collagen and elastin.
After a month the skin feels smoother, softer, tighter and plumper. At this point, a second treatment is needed to fully stimulate collagen and elastin production for optimal results.
