What is Profhilo?
Profhilo is an injectable skin remodeling treatment with one of the highest concentrations of Hyaluronic acid (HA), which is designed especially for people with thin, sagging skin. The profhilo treatment acts as a hydrator meaning it draws and holds the water from your body. This treatment is ideal for those who have weary, dull-looking skin, since it restores firmness, hydration and overall radiance back into the skin. Within 3 to 5 days, the effect will take place. Profhilo is quite often used for facial areas, however it can also be used to revitalise the neck, arms, knees and hands. Furthermore, the collagen and elastin production is boosted during the next few weeks, resulting in skin tightening as a side effect. Since collagen, elastin and Hyaluronic Acid levels in the skin begin to decline beyond the age of 30, resulting in symptoms of ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles and dull skin. Some of these alterations to skin are reversed by the Profhilo treatment. The full effect of the treatment is usually evident 2 months following the second treatment.
In 2 sessions which is separated by 4 weeks the profhilo is injected beneath the skin’s surface. Underneath the skin, it disperses swifty after the injection, improving hydration without the need for massage or the risk of lumps or nodules. The profhilo is absorbed within a 2cm radius of the injection site, hence only 10 injection spots are required to treat the entire face.
Further to this, one course of profhilo consists of 2 injectable treatments spaced 4 weeks apart, following which you should expect severe hydration. The positive effects for the skin includes;
- Radiant and Hydrated skin
- Reduce of fine wrinkles
- Healthier looking skin
- Tightens the skin
- Improves skin texture
To keep these outcomes the 2 treatment courses should be repeated every 6 months for the results to last.
You may feel a brief sting from the injections, however some clients have reported mild discomfort from the treatment. The first 24 to 75 hours, you may experience some tenderness and sensitivity.
The side effects may include slight bruising or swelling with all non-surgical procedures. These do not happen often and if they do, they fade away. This treatment must NOT be used by pregnant or breastfeeding women or those who are allergic to hyaluronic acid. Please contact the clinic if you are considering Profhilo treatment and would want to discuss whether it is right for you.
Profhilo downtime is limited and you should be able to continue with normal ‘light’ daily activities right after. However, we urge you to avoid any physical exertion or sports on the first day following the treatment and refrain from taking steamy baths/showers for the first several days. The first few days after the treatment, you should avoid direct sun or UV rays.
