Profhilo is an injectable skin bio-remodelling treatment that stimulates the production of collagen and elastin and helps to significantly improve tissue quality.

Profhilo was awarded the Aesthetics Award for Product Innovation of the Year 2016 thanks to it’s revolutionary composition without chemical cross linking agents (BDDE) and as one of the most concentrated formulations of Hyaluronic Acid on the market.

 

Clients who undergo a Profhilo treatment can expect to see increased firmness and improved elasticity of the skin in the treatment area, with the effects lasting up to 6 months.

Profhilo contains stabilised Hyaluronic Acid – a naturally occurring substance that helps the skin to retain moisture more effectively. It is also used for effective skin remodelling and treating skin laxity, not just for ‘filling’ lines and wrinkles.  IT IS NOT A DERMAL FILLER.

What are the benefits?

 

Profhilo can help to improve skin tone, texture, hydration and overall radiance.  It can help to increase firmness and elasticity and promote healthier and softer looking, and feeling, skin.

It's not just the face that can be treated with Profhilo – areas and types such as décolletage and face and more.

Why should I have this treatment?

 

As we age and the production of the ‘scaffolding’ proteins of collagen and elastin within our skin starts to reduce, many people find that skin becomes lax and wrinkles appear more visible. The overall texture of our skin is also negatively affected by the physical ageing process, with many people complaining that their skin appears dull, dry and lacklustre.

Profhilo is designed to tackle problems through effective skin bio-remodelling.

How does this treatment work?

 

Profhilo is an injectable treatment that specifically targets a 2cm radius of the injection site, with the product being gradually absorbed into this specific area. As a result, if the face is being treated, there are just 5 injection points on each side of the face to ensure optimal distribution and absorption of the slow release Hyaluronic Acid formula.

Once the absorption process has started, Profhilo stimulates the production of 4 different types of collagen and elastin. It is this stimulation that results in significant improvement of tissue quality and skin tone, as well as improved overall texture, hydration and radiance. Profhilo also helps to increase the firmness and elasticity of the skin in the treatment area.

What happens during the procedure?

 

Only after a  pre-treatment consultation and if you then decide to go ahead with the Profhilo treatment – you will be invited in to a 45-minute appointment. Profhilo injections only take about 15 minutes to carry out.

During the procedure, the injectable solution is delivered via a very fine disposable needle into the treatment area. If, for example, the face is being treated, five injections are delivered on each side of the face. Profhilo diffuses within the tissue after the injection and improved hydration and texture can start to be seen in 3-5 days, though older patients may not see tightening of the skin until after the second treatment.

Profhilo is recommended as a course of 2 treatments (spaced 4-6 weeks apart), and optimal results can be seen 2 months after the second treatment has been administered, with the positive effects of the treatment lasting up to 6 months.

What is the downtime after a treatment?

 

The downtime following a Profhilo treatment is minimal, and you should be able to return to your normal ‘light’ daily activities immediately after your procedure.  However, we recommend that you avoid physical strain and sports on the first day after the treatment, and don’t have a sauna or steamy bath for the first few days.  Taking steps to avoid the sun and UV light is also highly recommended for the first few days’ post-treatment.
