What is Profhilo?
Profhilo, is a unique stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid for treating skin laxity. It contains one of the highest concentrations of Hyaluronic acis on the market. It not only boosts and hydrates the skin, but also remodels the ageing and sagging tissue. Profhilo delivers great results as a treatment on its own or in combination with other aesthetics treatments currently on offer.
How long does Profhilo last?
As a stabilised product Profhilo lasts in the skin around 28 days. During this time the stimulation of 4 different types of collagen and elastin takes place by slow release of Hyaluronic acid.This stimulation results in significant tissue improvement. Therefore we cannot say that Profhilo is just a skin booster as it also has a significant tightening / lifting effect on the tissue.
How often would I need to have Profhilo?
To sustain results and counteract ageing and increased skin laxity over time, it is advised to have 2 doses (a month apart) of Profhilo initially followed by 6 monthly.
When will I see a difference?
Results can sometimes be noticed the next day (probably due to initial swelling at the injection sites). Full effect will be noticed over the following 3 weeks as it takes this long for the collagen and elastin to be fully stimulated.
What should I expect at my appointment?
At your first appointment we will analyse your skin texture and quality and discuss options. A tailor-made plan will be formulated with the use of photos. At your treatment appointment 5 injections points of Profhilo on each side of the face will be administered.
