Profhilo is an injectable treatment containing highly purified hyaluronic acid that works to boost the quality and condition of the skin. Profhilo can be used on various areas of the face and body, improving common skin concerns such as: dull skin, dry skin, crepey skin, fine lines and skin laxity. These conditions are commonly experienced as a result of ageing, lifestyle and / or environmental contributors, which can give the overall appearance a tired and lack-lustre look.
Through the use of Profhilo, the appearance can restore its radiant and youthful properties, helping you to look naturally glowing and refreshed.
This treatment is available as Profhilo and Profhilo Body. Each one contains the same high concentrations of hyaluronic acid, but the difference between the two products is the molecular weight within each formulation.
Profhilo is suitable for treating the complexion in areas including: cheeks, chin, jawline, neck, decolletage and hands. It’s known as an injectable moisturiser and works by enhancing the skin’s hydration at a much deeper level than skincare products alone. As levels of hyaluronic acid are increased, it helps to stimulate the fibrous tissue and trigger the production of new collagen and elastin. As these naturally occurring proteins deplete with age, replenishing their levels will revive firmer, fuller skin.
Profhilo Body has been specially formulated to suit the underlying skin structure of other areas of the body including: the stomach, upper arms, thighs, and knees. The injectable part of the procedure works in the same way as Profhilo, but includes a body patch and body cream to make up an entire skincare protocol. The body patch and body cream are to be used as part of an aftercare regime that helps to support and enhance the results of the injections, helping the outcome to last longer.
Our aftercare advice for Profhilo is very similar to other injectable treatments. It benefits the development of the results if you avoid the following for the first 24 hours: strenuous exercise, hot showers / baths, prolonged sun exposure and touching the treatment area / applying unnecessary pressure. For the first 48 hours you should not apply make-up, and for the next 2 weeks, it is not recommended to undergo any other skin treatments.
Our plan for treatment often suggests having 3 procedures, carried out 4 weeks apart. Once Profhilo starts to integrate with the underlying tissues, the renewal process begins. This may take a few weeks to produce noticeable results, which will advance after the second session. Increased hydration will brighten the complexion, and new collagen will smooth and tighten the skin. The outcome may last for around 6 months, and regular treatment sessions will mean a youthful and radiant look lasts longer.
The effects of ageing are commonly experienced from the age of 30 upwards. This is the ideal time for patients to request Profhilo, as it helps to restore the skin’s strong and youthful structure.
Profhilo is made up of 100% hyaluronic acid (a substance found naturally in the skin) and contains no other chemicals. This makes it very safe for a wide range of people, and causes little to no harm to the skin and tissues.
A single Profhilo treatment typically consists of 10 injections to the treatment area. This can be a little uncomfortable and cause some sensitivity. For this reason, The Facebible usually offers the application of a numbing cream to help minimise any tenderness.
The side effects that are to be expected with the Profhilo treatment include: swelling, minor bruising and red skin. A couple of days is usually all it takes for these effects to ease, and if they are found to continue for more than 10 days, please contact the clinic.
Our treatment plan for Profhilo usually recommends undergoing 3 treatment sessions to achieve the best possible result. This will of course, depend on your specific concerns, and maintenance procedures can be arranged to ensure a longer lasting result.
