Profhilo® is a revolutionary 'beneath the skin' hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment, hydrating your skin and complexion giving you a healthy glowing appearance. The injections work to stimulate the production of Collagen and Elastin boosting firmness and springy-ness of your skin.
Unlike Dermal Fillers which add volume to specific areas, Profhilo® works to lift the whole of your complexion. By stimulating the production of Collagen, Elastin and Hyaluronic Acid, it gently volumises and hydrates dull, sagging skin for a complete rejuvenation, which will leave you with a radiant, young glow and restored firmness.
Common treatment areas include the face and neck and Profhilo® can also be used for the décolletage, hands, arms, knees and abdomen area where it can also treat skin laxity or sagging. The treatment is suitable for men and women as well as offering skin benefits for patients of all ages. We often recommend a combined treatment plan for patients with deeper, more dynamic lines to ensure we achieve optimum results.
Ultra-pure hyaluronic acid is precisely injected into the right area of the skin. Unlike wrinkle reducing and dermal filler treatments, Profhilo stimulates collagen and elastin, attracting water in the deeper layers of the skin.
Profhilo is the first BDDE-free stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) based product for treating skin laxity. With 64mg per 2ml Profhilo has one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid available.
As a stabilised product, the activity on dermal cells will last longer than that of a non-stabilised gel. During this time the stimulation of four different types of collagen and elastin takes place by slow release of hyaluronic acid.
The stimulation results in significant tissue improvement, which normally includes boosting, tightening and lifting effects.
As we age there is a natural decline in the amount of Collagen, Elastin and Hyaluronic Acid that our own bodies produce. As these elements reduce we notice our ageing process. We recommend Profhilo® for customers who wish to age 'more slowly'. Profhilo treatment will better preserve your skin and help reduce the effects of your skin thinning.
Profhilo® is most commonly used on the face and neck. It is also useful in revitalising the backs of hands and chest or decollete. Profhilo treatment reduces sagging and crepey skin, leading to a firmer and more youthful appearance.
We advise that you have two treatments normally within four weeks. Some patients have reported seeing results in their first week, but the best outcomes of Profhilo® treatment tend to be four weeks after your second treatment.
The results from Profhilo® treatments typically last for up to six months, but results can vary from person to person and may last longer or in some cases shorter than this.
For a few days before your treatment, we advise that you avoid alcohol and do not take anti-inflammatory medications such as Ibuprofen so that bruising can be minimised. Please attend your treatment appointment without face make-up. We don’t expect that profhilo® treatment should affect your normal daily routines, however, we do advise that you avoid gym, sauna or swimming on the same day as your treatment.
To understand what Profhilo® might cost depends on what you want to achieve and how many areas you would like to have treated. Everything starts with a full face to face consultation with an experienced Nurse Practitioner. Our nurses may suggest combining Profhilo® with other treatments, following your consultation, depending on what you want to achieve.
Treatment Finance options are under review and may be available, please ask in your consultation for more details.
