Profhilo

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 (HA), Profhilo® significantly improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and helps to increase hydration and firmness across the face.



How does Profhilo® work?

Profhilo® has been specially formulated to contain a unique level of Hyaluronic Acid (a naturally occurring substance found in our bodies that is responsible for maintaining moisture within our skin), which helps to encourage the production of collagen and elastin across the skin. Because of the way that 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, to provide overall more plump and luminous skin.

 

The substance is injected just below the skin’s surface in just two sessions over a period of 4 weeks, and disperses quickly across the skin to instantly boost hydration, and consequently smooth fine lines and wrinkles, giving an overall improved skin texture.

Why chose Profhilo®?

We start losing a significant amount of collagen, elastin and Hyaluronic Acid after we reach 30, meaning we begin to see the signs of ageing in the form of fine lines, wrinkles and slightly lack-lustre skin. At this age, we should start to consider preserving ourselves, therefore Profhilo® is advised for individuals from around the age of 30 upwards, who wish to target ageing skin.

 

Profhilo® is also an excellent choice for those that do not wish to add volume to specific areas (if this is the case, it is more likely that dermal fillers would be the right treatment for you), as it instead provides volume and hydration across the skin, giving an overall rejuvenated appearance. 

There is no age upper limit either. In fact, in older patients, we have often seen more dramatic results. 60+ clients need to be managed carefully. For example, if there are deep folds present or the skin has lost elasticity then the combination treatments with Profhilo® may be more suitable. Consultation is very important. If the patient is looking for very subtle results, this treatment delivers. However, if they are looking for a lifting of the face, neck or any other area, then the combination with fillers, threads, surgery should be recommended.

What is the difference between Profhilo® and Dermal Fillers?

Due to the way that Profhilo® is formulated, it is not a volumising treatment in the same way that dermal fillers are, and is not used to enhance specific areas of the face (e.g. lips, cheeks, chin). Instead, Profhilo® is primarily a hydrating treatment, and the Hyaluronic Acid it contains is dispersed evenly throughout the face, which means the skin is given an overall more plump and firm look.

How long does Profhilo® last?

The results from the Profhilo treatment will most often last for up to six months, but results can differ for each individual.
