Profhilo® is an exclusive skin remodelling treatment designed for individuals with ageing skin that is lacking volume and elasticity. By stimulating the production of collagen and elastin through the slow release of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Profhilo® significantly improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and helps to increase hydration and firmness across the face.
The first of its kind, Profhilo is an stabilised form of the miracle hydrating molecule hyaluronic acid. When injected, it stimulates the skin’s natural synthesis of collagen for plumped and firmed up skin.
What you need to know
What is Profhilo:
Profhilo is an exclusive injectable skin bio-remodelling treatment specifically formulated to address facial ageing, that is lacking both volume and skin elasticity. Profhilo stimulates four different types of collagen and elastin through the slow release of Hyaluronic Acid (HA). Made of 100% Hyaluronic Acid, a substance we naturally produce, that is responsible for maintaining moisture within our skin, effectively increasing firmness and skin laxity.
How Does Profhilo Work:
Profhilo was awarded the Aesthetics Award for Product Innovation of the year 2016 due to revolutionary composition without chemical cross-linking agents (BDDE) and won the award for best injectable product in Europe in 2018.
What happens During The Treatment:
Prior to the treatment a one to one Consultation is completed. During the consultation it is an opportunity to establish a management plan and identify if the treatment is appropriate given your medical history, skin presentation and realistic expectations. You will be given comprehensive information about the treatment and the procedure, potential side effects, with pre and post treatment advice. Following this you will be given time to decide if you would like to proceed with the treatment. Consent for the treatment and photos will be taken.
The treatment of Profhilo consists of 2 sessions one month apart. At each session 2ml of Profhilo is injected into the mid and lower face using a technique called BAP (BIO AESTHETIC POINTS), the BAP technique is 5 entry points of injection for each side of the face.
The substance disperses quickly across the skin, this in turn nourishes dermal cells. It helps to:
- Increase and restore skin firmness and elasticity
- Tighten and lift the skin
- Improve skin tone and texture
- Significantly improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Restoring Rehydration and radiance of the skin.
Profhilo can also be used in the neck, décolletage, upper arms and hands. It is suitable for men and women, from the age of 30 years old, with no upper age limit.
Are There Any Side Effects:
Hyaluronic acid is very well tolerated by the skin. The only reported side effects are bruising and mild swelling at the injection sites, which will settle within a very short period of time. This may be related with the action of needle to skin rather than the product itself. If the area is red and raised at the injection site this will subside within 4 hours, there may also be some itching and tenderness at the treated area, but this will settle down very quickly and should not be visible after 24hours.
How Many Treatments Would I Require:
For the best results 2 treatments of Profhilo are recommended. 2ml in the initial session and a further 2ml, 4 weeks later. The best outcomes of the treatment will be visible 4 weeks after the second treatment. Top ups and maintenance treatments can be recommended depending on your response to the treatment.
What Results Can I expect from Profhilo:
After a course of Profhilo, involving 2 injectable treatments 4 weeks apart, you can expect to see an intense hydration. It makes tired, dull skin glow and fine lines disappear. You’ll notice smoother, tighter skin. Even for those with very wrinkled skin, an improvement in the texture and tone is undeniable. The treatment can be repeated six months later.
Profhilo Aftercare Advice:
Following a Profhilo treatment there is minimal downtime and you can continue with light activities. It is best to avoid exercise, sport and alcohol for 24hours following the treatment. It is also recommended to avoid saunas, steam rooms, swimming or hot baths for a few days following the treatment. Avoid the sun for the first few days following the treatment and always wear a high skin factor 50+.
Are there any contra-indications to having Profhilo:
It is not recommended if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or allergic to Hyaluronic acid.
What is the Difference Between Profhilo and Dermal Fillers:
Due to the way Profhilo is formulated it is not a volumizing treatment in the same way that dermal fillers are and is not used to enhance specific areas of the face eg. Cheeks, lips, jaw, chin. Profhilo is primarily a hydrating treatment and the hyaluronic acid it contains is dispersed evenly throughout the face giving your skin a more plump, firm and natural look overall.
A course of 2 treatments, one month apart total £500.
