providing volume and hydration
Profhilo is made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar chain molecule found in skin and throughout the body, identical across species. Hyaluronic acid attracts and binds water in the skin, providing volume and hydration, but also ‘cushions’ and supports collagen and elastin fibres and provides a medium, or carrier, for the efficient transport of chemical messages between the cells. Profhilo contains a high concentration of hyaluronic acid, exceptionally pure because its unique and patented manufacturing process does not involve the use of chemical cross-linking agents to bind the chains.
What can be treated?
Profhilo is used to treat skin laxity and improve skin quality. It can be used to treat skin laxity and skin quality, almost anywhere, common indications include;
- The face
- Inner arms
Generally, patients report an overall improvement in skin hydration, brightness, smoothness, and firmness.
What Happens During The Treatment?
The area will be cleaned, and the treatment area will be marked out using a white pencil. A very fine needle will be used to administer the product just under the skin. Profhilo is injected into the skin in a specific pattern depending on the area to be treated.
Will It Hurt?
The injections sting briefly, but patients generally report only mild discomfort. After the treatment, you may experience some tenderness for the first 24- 72 hours.
How Long Do The Results Last?
This depends of various factors, including your health, skin condition and the area we are treating. Results can last for up to 6 months before the need for a maintenance treatment or repeating the procedure.
How Many Treatments Do I Need To Have?
Two treatments are required, 4 weeks apart. The first to stimulate, the second to ‘boost’ and ensure longevity. In some cases, and depending on your initial skin quality, you may benefit from a third treatment, typically 8 weeks from your second treatment.
