Bioremodelling, skin laxity treatment.
A new approach to anti-ageing, Profhilo counteracts skin laxity of the face and in other traditionally difficult to treat areas such as the neck, décolleté, hands and upper arms. Profhilo is not a dermal filler but an ultrapure hyaluronic acid treatment. It integrates into the skin where it restores the levels of hyaluronic acid naturally found in the skin, to deliver improvements in skin texture, elasticity and hydration, which delivers tightening and volumising effects.
Profhilo is a whole face treatment delivered over two treatment sessions, it is minimally invasive, with 5 small injections at strategic points on both sides of the face. The two treatment sessions are delivered at a 4 week interval and maximum results are seen 4 weeks after the second treatment. There is little to no downtime with this treatment, most patients experience little to no bruising or swelling. Results last p to 6 month but can be maintained with a top up treatment every 3-4 months. Profhilo is also a fantastic treatment for neck, décolleté and hands.
Does it hurt?
Profhilo is administered as a series of small injections. A topical anaesthetic can be applied prior to the procedure to make the experience more comfortable if required.
When can expect to see results?
Initially two applications of Profhilo are required one month apart. The results are seen 4 weeks after the second application.
Is there any downtime?
If Profhilo is administered as a facial treatment there are small lumps on the face, which look similar to hives at the site the product has been infected. After 24hours these are no longer visible, after 48hours they can no longer be felt. Bruising and swelling are rare post procedure.
How long do the results last?
Results last 6 months. To maintain the results one treatment is recommended every 4 months.
