Profhilo is a highly concentrated hyaluronic acid product that provides overall facial rejuvenation to tighten and firm the skin. It does not plump or add volume like dermal filler, but instead restores the naturally occurring hyaluronic acid that has been lost with age. Profhilo is highly versatile and can be used to target several key concerns:
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and re-hydrates the skin
- Moisturise from the inside out
- Uses slow-release Hyaluronic Acid
- Stimulates the production of collagen and elastin
What does the treatment involve?
The treatment takes 15-20 minutes. Five injection points are placed on either side of the face to place the product which then diffuses into the skin and over the period of 4 weeks stimulates collagen and elastin production. This leads to an overall improvement in skin appearance, boosting luminescence, and giving a hydrated look and feel to your complexion. It’s designed for people with aging skin that is lacking volume and elasticity. It significantly improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and helps to increase hydration and firmness across the face. It is also an excellent option for the early prevention of lines, wrinkles, and loss of volume.
How does Profhilo work?
To achieve optimal results, two initial treatments are required and should be carried out 4 weeks apart.
Once you have completed the course of treatment, you will continue to see further improvements for 4-6 weeks. At that point, you will see the maximal effect of the treatment on your skin. To maintain these results, one treatment every 4 – 6 months will be required.
Before & After Images
Prior to Treatment:
During your medical consultation an assessment will take place along with your medical history and make sure you are suitable for the treatment.
The Botulinum toxin will be injected precisely into the treatment areas and takes around 15 minutes to complete. The result will gradually appear and final result will be achieved 2 weeks after the treatment
Patients might feel slight sensitivity in the area for the twenty-four hours, which settles on its own. No down time or recovery is required and normal activities can resume immediately. However it is advisable not to lie down for a couple of hours after the treatment and avoid strenuous activity/saunas/other facial treatments for up to 24 hours.
Avoid touching, rubbing or applying makeup on the treated areas for 4 hours. It is best to avoid alcohol and exposure to excessive sunlight, at least two days prior to treatment. Aspirin should be stopped five days before treatment in order to reduce bruising.
*Specific aftercare instructions will be given to you on the day of your treatment.
Frequently asked questions
The most common areas that we treat include the face, neck and decolletage, as well as the hands, arms, knees, and abdomen where skin laxity is often overlooked.
It’s important that you avoid wearing make-up post-treatment for around 6 hours, as well as avoid strenuous exercise for a full 24 hours. During this time, wash gently and try to limit how much you touch the treated area. Facial treatments should also be avoided for a full 2 weeks.
This is the most wonderful thing about Profhilo, it is completely natural and does not limit facial movement or have any risk of looking ‘overdone’ or ‘puffy’.
Yes, absolutely. Profhilo is excellent for improving the quality and texture of the skin to provide you with smoother, plumper and more elastic youthful and glowing skin. What it cannot do however is replace lost volume in the face or can it smooth out deep folds or wrinkles. For that, we recommend hyaluronic acid dermal fillers and/or anti-wrinkle injections both of which can be performed separately or in combination with it. This can happen either at the same appointment or at a different time depending on your treatment goals.
