Profhilo and Skin Boosting
Profhilo delivers very pure, stabilised hyaluronic acid into the skin through a series of small injections.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring chemical which the body uses to retain water in the skin and support the skin’s collagen and elastin.
Profhilo® works in a course of 2 or 3 treatments, 4 weeks apart. On the face, only 5 injection points are necessary on each side of the face to give maximum results.
Profhilo® acts as a hydrator rather than a filler. It is injected just under the surface of the skin, where it disperses quickly (due to the lack of BDDE cross-linking agent) and reacts with your own tissues to instantly boost hydration. Over the following 4 weeks, phase 2 will boost collagen and elastin production within the dermis. This helps to give the skin a youthful, plump, smooth and firm appearance.
Profhilo® can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with other dermal fillers, laser treatments or Botox as part of a holistic approach to skin remodelling and revitalisation.
The treatment is most commonly used in the face with 5 different injection points giving even spread of the profhilo across most of the face, however it can also be used in the Neck, Hands and Body. Results from Profhilo® can last anything from 6 to 12 months, depending on your individual reaction and metabolism of the product.
We use Profhilo® to create an airbrushed skin effect on patients of all ages. It is especially popular with patients over the age of 30. If you are not happy with your skin laxity, have crêpey or thin skin as well as other visible signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles, you could be suitable for Profhilo®.
This includes a consultation with our team. Discussion of what you are concerned about and looking for. Then medical history and consent form completion.
The procedure lasts 20-30 minutes. Topical local anaesthetic cream is sometimes needed for this and there is very little discomfort as a result of this.
The majority of people require no downtime following these procedures and can return to work and normal activities the same day. Some basic post procedure instructions apply.
Results are seen typically after 7 days which continue to improve over the next 4 weeks and last unto 6 months. Initially 2 treatments 4 weeks apart are recommended for the most benefit.
