Profhilo is a two-part treatment for skin texture, very fine lines, firmness, and dehydration. Profhilo is a hyaluronic acid (HA) based product that works by stimulating 4 types of collagen and elastin in our skin through a slow release of HA. The stimulation results in significant improvement to the skin, boosting texture and smoothing fine lines. It can be described as a honey consistency, injected into 5 points on each side of the face blending together and creating a smoother appearance.
This treatment is perfect for patients new to Aesthetic procedures wanting a ‘tweak’ to improve their skin quality. Profhilo also works well alongside other procedures enhancing results.
Profhilo is commonly used for the lower face but can also be used to treat the hands, neck, and arms.
WHERE IS PROFHILO INJECTED?
There are 5 points on each side of the lower face that are carefully mapped out prior to injecting, these points are landmarks used to achieve the best results for your individual facial structure.
WHEN WILL I SEE THE RESULTS?
Profhilo is a two part treatment, one month apart. Although some patients will see an improvement from the first session we call this the ‘primer’ session, the best results will be seen following treatment number two, around 8 weeks after the initial session. The reason for this is because of the slow release of HA working on stimulating the collagen layers deep in the skin.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PROFHILO AND DERMAL FILLERS?
Dermal fillers are used to volumise and plump the skin, it is not used to enhance specific areas. Although Profhilo contains HA it is hydrating the skin by dispersing evenly through the 5 points of injection. Profhilo gives and overall more plump and firmer look to the skin.
WHAT WILL I LOOK LIKE AFTER THE PROCEDURE?
Most patients will carry on with their day as usual following treatment. There may be some small bumps and redness at the injection points although they are barely visible on most people. Make up can not be applied but we can put a post treatment cover up on the skin in the clinic.
