Profhilo is an innovative, injectable skin remodelling treatment delivering visible results in just 2 treatments. Leading a revolution in anti-ageing medicine, Profhilo is perhaps best-described as a ‘bio-rejuvenator’, ‘bio-revitaliser’ or ‘tissue-stimulator’.
The only treatment to stimulate production of all 4 types of collagen and elastin, Profhilo enables natural skin rejuvenation through the slow release of hyaluronic acid for skin remodelling and treating skin laxity, as opposed to simply filling lines and wrinkles.
Profhilo counteracts skin laxity through a remodelling action of collagen and elastin fibres of the dermal matrix; rather than remaining where it is placed until it naturally degrades, Profhilo interacts with the body’s tissue causing it to regenerate naturally thereby restoring lost volume whilst improving tone and texture.
As every client’s body, skin and required goals are unique, a detailed consultation with one of our expert aestheticians is essential prior to undergoing any advanced non-surgical treatment. During the consultation your aesthetician will discuss any problem areas, desired improvements, options available (including no treatment at all) and expected outcomes. A thorough medical history will be recorded and photographs taken to document your starting point prior to treatment.
Should Profhilo be agreed upon as the most suitable system to address your concerns, your aesthetician will devise a bespoke programme of treatment. 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 is recommended as a course of 2 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Optimal results can be seen 2 months after the second treatment has been administered and generally speaking, last up to 6 months.
As every client and Profhilo procedure is unique, your aesthetician will discuss the specific expected outcomes prior to your treatment. Following treatment you should expect to see some immediate improvement, with the optimum results achieved after the second treatment taken at a 4-6 week interval. Patients can expect increased firmness, elasticity and an overall improved quality of the skin with the effects lasting up to 6 months. Since the procedure stimulates the body’s own collagen production, longevity of results differs from patient to patient.
Profhilo is most commonly used for facial areas, but can also effectively be used for rejuvenating the neck, décolleté and hands. The treatment is mainly aimed at patients who have visible signs of skin ageing. There is no age upper limit, as Profhilo works on the skin. If there are deep folds present or the skin has lost elasticity then the combination treatments with Profhilo may be more suitable.
Profhilo treatment is non-surgical and minimally-invasive with limited down-time. Normal ‘light’ daily activities may be resumed immediately following treatment, with no need for special post-treatment measures.
