The first of its kind, Profhilo is a revolutionary ‘beneath the skin’ hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment. This results in a unique hyaluronic acid injectable gel, which has a prolonged stimulating activity on the dermal cells. When injected into skin, Profhilo stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity and improve and restore firmness of the skin.
One of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market, Profhilo not only boosts and hydrates the skin, but also remodels ageing and sagging tissue. The most common areas of treatment include the face and neck. The treatment is suitable for men and women as well as offering skin benefits for patients of all ages.
Ultra-pure hyaluronic acid is precisely injected into the area being treated. Profhilo is administered with 5 injections using a bolus technique on each side of the face or neck. Profhilo sits in the dermis up to 28 days and stimulates 4 different types of collagen and elastin. It attracts water in the deeper layers of the skin and slowly releases hyaluronic acid.
The stimulation results in significant tissue improvement. Therefore we cannot say that Profhilo is a skin booster as it also has a significant tightening / lifting effect on the tissue.
Anybody whose skin is showing signs of ageing and loss of laxity will be an ideal client.
Slight bruising and swelling may occur at the injection points but there is no downtime and is a very quick treatment with great results
4 weeks after the initial treatment you will start seeing tightening and a lifting effect on the skin.
It is strongly recommended that you have 2 sessions to complete the process and experience the full impact of Profhilo.
The second session should be carried out 4 weeks after your initial session.
In cases of extremely lax skin tissue a 3rd treatment is recommended approximately 8 weeks after the 2nd session.
