If you are new to cosmetic treatments and want to achieve more subtle look than fillers, PROFHILO may be the best treatment to improve and maintain the quality of your skin.
PROFHILO is considered to be safe, clean, effective and “a true breakthrough” in anti-ageing medicine.
Profhilo is not a dermal filler although it is made from a hyaluronic acid gel. Profhilo is a very potent skin booster made from hyaluronic acid for skin that is losing its elasticity and firmness with age. It creates a fresh natural glowing look, hydrated and softens fine lines.
Aging and other skin conditions occur as a result of the significant decrease in the skin’s production of collagen and elastin. Thus, one way to combat skin conditions is to make use of treatments that encourage the production of collagen and elastin.
What Is Profhilo ?
PROFHILO is not a filler, but a Hyaluronic Acid gel with innovative bio-remodelling properties. It generates four types of collagen and elastin along with it, thus making it an effective treatment for skin laxity, lack of hydration and overall tired looking skin. It sorts out the dehydration problem while restoring the skin’s natural glow.
How does Profhilo work?
Profhilo is made of the purest form of hyaluronic acid (HA) which is injected strategically into the upper-layers of the skin with a very small needle. Unlike HA used in filler treatments, this HA is very runny (think honey-like) which effortlessly disperses into the skin where it has a “rebuilding” action on the tissues, deeply hydrates and begins its bio-remodelling process. Unlike dermal fillers which are used to build volume, Profhilo is used to enhance your skin’s quality.
What are the benefits of Profhilo ?
Profhilo triggers a response in the tissue known as ‘bioremodeling’ which smooths, tightens and gives your skin an inner-glow.
In short, Profhilo remodels skin laxity and battles crepiness. It is not a replacement for fillers and Botox and can be used in combination with these other treatments or as a stand-alone treatment.
Profhilo is working on the skin quality rather than the muscle movement which cause wrinkles (Muscle relaxing injections treat this) or for the loss of volume in the fat pads and filling specific lines (dermal fillers treat these concerns).
PROFHILO helps with skin repair and rejuvenation, lifts and gives your face a defined look, eliminates fine lines, expression lines, and wrinkles, and straightens the skin while getting rid of wrinkles and sagging skin.
Am I Suitable to Have Profhilo?
Anyone who presents with signs of ageing is suitable to have Profhilo. The preferred age range PROFHILO is suitable for is from 40-50 years. Nevertheless, people outside the above-stated age bracket can also use PROFHILO as a preventative treatment to keep their skin strong and in good condition.
The Profhilo treatment protocol
Just two sessions are required one month apart to experience the benefits of PROFHILO on your skin as, depending on skin type, you can begin to see its effect after one or two days. Others might not see the effect until about a week later or more. However, the best results are normally seen 8 weeks after the first session. Treatment results last for up to six months. Profhilo can work as a treatment on its own or in combination with other cosmetic treatments.
Is Profhilo a Safe Treatment?
This treatment is quite effective in restoring your appearance to its youthful beauty. From a safety perspective, PROFHILO is highly biocompatible, owning to the fact that it’s designed by using natural hyaluronic acid without the addition of chemical cross-linking agents.
PROFHILO complements all other cosmetic or aesthetic procedures by significantly improving the skin texture, and giving support to the structures underneath.
As with any injectable product there is always a risk of minor bruising and swelling at the injection site, which normally resolves within 24 hours. You can usually return to work immediately after your treatment. After care will be discussed during your consultation.
Is Profhilo Painful Treatment ?
There is no downtime; immediately after the procedure, you can see small raised bumps, at the site of the injection. These are very easy to cover usually and can take up to 24 hours to settle.
The innovative injection technique used during a Profhilo treatment means that only 5 small injections are needed each side of the face meaning that the treatment is quite quick and comfortable.
Contraindications include clients with bleeding disorders, immune compromised disorders, pregnant and those with unrealistic expectations.
