Profhilo is an innovative treatment that has caused a real buzz in the aesthetics industry, winning numerous awards since its launch in 2015. Profhilo is a high-concentration type of hyaluronic acid that is injected into the skin to treat skin laxity, boost and hydrate the skin, and remodel ageing and sagging skin. Profhilo can be used on the face and hands, and is particularly good for treating crepe-like skin on the neck. It is neither a dermal filler nor a skin booster: Profhilo is termed a bio-remodelling agent.
Profhilo is injected into specific points in the area being treated, spreading under the skin like honey, resulting in increased skin hydration. It also stimulates the skin to produce more of its own collagen and elastin to smooth and tighten the treatment area. Profhilo is advised for clients aged from around 30 upwards, because from this age we naturally start to lose collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.
For the full effect, you will need to have 2 Profhilo treatments, spaced 3-6 weeks apart. Results are not immediate, but occur gradually over a number of weeks, and will start to become evident after the second treatment. The results usually last for 6 months. For maintenance, it is recommended to have a single treatment every 4-6 months.
As with any injection, there is a risk of bleeding and bruising, as well as the possibility of infection. Good injection technique and keeping the procedure sterile, along with your following all aftercare advice, will minimise these risks.
The procedure takes 45 minutes, including a pre-treatment consultation.
There will be small lumps where the product has been injected for approximately 4-6 hours, but they can last up to 24 hours. On the face, there are 5 injections on each side. After the treatment, we advise avoiding strenuous activity, saunas, steam rooms and alcohol for 24 hours.
There is some discomfort during the injections, but this is short lived and most clients tolerate it very well.
