Is your skin lacking volume and elasticity? Do you suffer from wrinkles, sagging skin, or premature ageing? If you’re looking for a safe, effective, and long-lasting non-surgical anti-ageing treatment, then Profhilo may be just what you need. Profhilo is a relatively new non-invasive treatment in the aesthetic service, but it’s been causing quite a stir in the short time it’s been around – promising to revitalize skin with just five injections of hyaluronic acid on the face. So, what is this miraculous Hyaluronic Acid treatment? What does it do to your face? Is Profhilo worth it? Let’s find out more.
Profhilo is an injectable treatment that can be used on the face or neck to improve skin quality and make us look younger and rejuvenated. Unlike other anti-aging injectables that use fillers to add volume and stretch the skin, Profhilo uses hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that hydrates, firms, and truly rebuild new, younger-looking skin cells. The treatment uses hyaluronic acid, which naturally boosts collagen in the body, to provide great texture and brightness to dull, dry, or aging skin, and to reduce wrinkled, sagging areas. There is an immediately noticeable improvement in skin tone, hydration, firmness, and also fine lines are visibly improved immediately. Injections are given at five different points on the face which are the upper cheek, nasal base, lower cheek, jawline, and chin, however, Profhilo is often very effective in lifting the lower face area. This is a very safe treatment that is especially effective for lifting the lower face area.
Profhilo is an excellent anti-ageing treatment, clinically proven to help alleviate the various symptoms of ageing. It acts as a moisturizer rather than traditional dermal fillers and is therefore ideal for those with tired, dull, and ageing skin as it provides an overall fuller and brighter skin. Examples of certain signs of ageing that Profhilo can be used for include:
Profhilo treatment is suitable for all genders, skin tones, and skin types. Men and women looking to improve their skin hydration and overall quality can try Profhilo. While there is no age limit or restriction, it is recommended for patients 30 years and older.
You may be a suitable candidate if you:
During a Profhilo treatment, hyaluronic acid is injected as a gel-like substance into several different Profhilo injection points in the targeted area (five injections on each side of the face, which are the upper cheek, nasal base, lower cheek, jawline, and chin). You may feel the sting for up to 90 seconds after each jab. Profhilo works by penetrating below the skin’s surface to diffuse and draw moisture from within. The substance then actually conditions the skin from the inside out. Profhilo also boosts collagen and elastin production for softer, more even-toned skin.
Since Profhilo is an injectable treatment, the treatment itself may take as little as 10 minutes, depending on the number of areas to be treated.
Profhilo has only a few side effects and the body metabolizes Hyaluronic Acid completely. You may experience some redness and minor bruising after the treatment, but these are temporary and will subside in a few hours. For downtime, there is only a little downtime, but it is recommended to avoid strenuous exercise after treatment. Patients are also advised to avoid anti-inflammatories and alcohol for 24 hours before the procedure.
In our clinic, we first consult with our patients to make sure they are suitable for treatment.
