PROFHILO® Skin Remodelling
Laxity in the tissue, lines, wrinkles and signs of ageing on the skin can all be treated with Profhilo. This can transform the appearance of the skin as well as offer a tightening effect. Profhilo® is a unique product that offers a great result on its own or can be used in combination with other treatments.
· Profhilo® is not a dermal filler or bio-revitaliser – it falls into its own category of bio-remodelling.
· It lasts in the skin for 28 days and during this time, 4 different types of collagen and elastin are produced.
· Profhilo® can be used to restore firmness within the skin and reduce the appearance of skin laxity or sagging.
· Generally a course of Profhilo® involves two treatments, 4 weeks apart.
· After 8 weeks, you will see a significant improvement of the skin and results can for 6 months and in some cases even longer.
· Results vary for each individual, therefore, expectations and outcome will be discussed during the consultation.
Although Profhilo® is a Hyaluronic Acid-based product, it offers more of a hydrating and moisturising result as opposed to a ‘filling’ result, unlike the standard Dermal Fillers. The patented technology of Profhilo® ensures that the product maintains stability (and isn’t instantly broken down within the body) without the use of any chemical cross-linking compounds such as BDDE. It falls into its own category of injectables; bio-remodelling.
Profhilo® is injected and remains within the skin for around 28 days. During this period, 4 types of Collagen and Elastin are produced by the slow release of Hyaluronic acid. This stimulation results in a significant improvement of the skin quality, texture and appearance. It also has a tightening and lifting effect. Unlike dermal fillers and Ellanse, Profhilo® does not provide volume to the face.
The treatment is suitable for anyone that has started to notice signs of ageing on their skin. This could be laxity to the tissue, or perhaps the formation of lines and wrinkles. The treatment can be used as a preventative measure in the younger patient to help maintain healthy and youthful skin but can also be used in a mature patient to treat existing signs of ageing.
Profhilo® is predominantly most effective for the treatment of skin laxity in the face. However, it can also be used to treat the following areas:
– Inner arms
Profhilo® can also be used in combination with anti-wrinkle treatment.
For best results, it is recommended to inject 4mls of Profhilo® in total; 2mls at the initial treatment and then 2mls one month after the first treatment. In some cases, where the signs of ageing are more extreme, it may be required to use 8mls of product spread across 4 treatments.
Profhilo® is injected into the skin in tiny amounts using an ultrafine needle, resulting in minimal discomfort.
Results from the treatment can be immediate. Clients have noticed a visible, natural-looking yet noticeable rejuvenation of the treated area immediately following treatment. Increased firmness, elasticity and an overall improvement in the quality of the skin can be visible for 6 months following treatment.
You will be able to carry on with your normal activities following treatment. It is not advised to do any heavy exercise and avoid UV exposure for 24 hours. We also advise trying to refrain from applying make-up following the procedure on the day of treatment.
A full list of aftercare will be discussed on the day of treatment.
SAFETY & SIDE-EFFECTS
Immediately after treatment, there may be some redness at the injection site and it is possible to experience some itching, tenderness and swelling in the treated area. This will generally subside within 24 hours. Most patients report very little side effects following treatment.
A full list of possible side effects will be discussed with you during your consultation.
It is best to discuss your needs, expectations and suitability for treatment during a face-to-face consultation. Anna can assess your facial anatomy and make tailored recommendations to achieve the best possible outcome.
