Profhilo® Hyaluronic Acid Skin Rejuvenation
Everyone is talking about Profhilo®. It is a skin treatment growing in popularity often referred to as a skin booster. It works by hydrating the skin and by stimulating the production of the skin’s natural proteins collagen and elastin.
A hydrator rather than a filler Profhilo® containing Hyaluronic Acid (a substance that is naturally occurring throughout the body that is responsible for maintaining moisture in the skin) can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and is an ideal treatment for people who would like more pump and illuminous looking skin.
The Profhilo® is injected just below the skin’s surface. Two sessions are needed about 4 weeks apart. The Profhilo® quickly disperses to give an instant improvement in skin hydration, and consequently smooths fine lines and improves the overall texture.
Is Profhilo® for me?
After your 30th birthday you start to lose collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid from your skin. This is one of the reasons the skin starts to look aged, dull and fine lines and wrinkles form.
Profhilo® is for you if you want to improve the overall appearance of your skin and is advised from the age of 30 onwards if you wish to target skin aging. There is no upper age limit and some older patients 60+ can get some lovely results.
If your skin is sagging and areas of your face have lost significant volume dermal fillers might be a more appropriate treatment to restore this. Dermal fillers can be used in combination with Profhilo® and this combined approach can achieve some excellent results.
What areas can Profhilo® treat?
Profhilo is most commonly used on the face producing a plumping effect all over, and it is especially good at improving the lines around the eyes and mouth.
It can also be used to improve the appearance of aging in the neck, décolletage and hands.
How long will the effects last?
How long the effects last is variable. It is dependent on your skin type, quality and degree of aging. People return for treatment from 4 to 12 months.
Following the procedure, you can return to normal activities with minimal downtime. Clients are advised not to wear makeup, have any other facial treatments or do rigorous exercise for 24 hours.
