What is Profhilo?


Profhilo is an injectable anti-ageing treatment created to improve skin volume, complexion and elasticity. Profhilo is made from hyaluronic acid and it has one of the highest volumes of this on the market currently. Why is this important? Our bodies naturally produce hyaluronic acid in the skin which its role is to hydrate and nourish our skin cells which will keep them looking healthy, hydrated, plump and glowy.


Our bodies produce less of it which mean as we get older which means, dry, dull and crepy skin is higher risk. Naturally with age our appearance changes due to tissue loss including bone, muscle and fat. This results in skin losing its elasticity and firmness and leading to fine lines, wrinkles, thinning and sagging of the face.


Profhilo tackles this by injecting a high volume of hyaluronic acid just below the surface of the skin where it disperses quickly and reacts with the tissue to boost hydration. Followed by a

gradual stimulation and remodel of your Collagen, Elastin & Adipocytes which improves your skin quality and complexion over time.

For best results, it is recommended to have 2 sessions of Profhilo, 28 days apart.


(Profhilo results after just 1 session. Hydrated and glowy skin with signs of plumping and tightening starting but this will get even better after a 2nd session).

Benefits


Profhilo is BDDE-free and has one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market (64 mg / 2 ml), it is not only boosting and hydrating the skin, but also remodels the ageing and sagging tissue. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally produced substance in our body, found in our skin, joints and connective tissue, it attracts and binds to water in the skin, aiding collagen production. This means the risks are low with Profhilo as our body recognises HA and it has a low immune response.

Our bodies take a real hit over the years from the sun, diet, lifestyle, pollution and more.

The benefits of Profhilo include;


  • Anti-ageing

  • Volume addition

  • Hydrated skin (reduction in dry skin)

  • Improved complexion

  • Reduction in fine/lines and wrinkles

  • Potential complete loss of fine lines

  • Prevention of line formation


Whats the procedure?

B A P TECHNIQUE


Profhilo has a total of 10 injections given into

the skins dermal layer, 5 on each side.


The areas we focus on are:


Zygomatic Protrusion (cheekbone)

Nasal Base (in line with the nostril)

Tragus (in line with the ear lobe)

Chin

Mandibular Angle (jawline)


This technique works effectively because these

are the main areas where skin ages. By adding

high volumes of HA, we can give the skin a

chance to hydrate and remodel giving you a

refreshed and radiant look.


Downtime?


The great thing about these types of treatments is that in the majority of cases, is that there is minimal downtime.

Straight after treatment you will notice slight raised and possibly red areas at the injection sites where the Profhilo sits underneath your skin. This should go down after a few hours. Thereafter you are likely to look completely normal. This treatment is often referred to as the 'lunchtime facial' as you are unlikely to see any bruising and swelling post treatment. The injections are very superficial within the skin and the needle used is very fine for Profhilo.,

It is best to avoid some things post treatment to reduce risks of infection, swelling and bruising however we will cover these at your appointment.


HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?


If you have 2 sessions 28 days apart, results can last up to 6 months. We are all different and our bodies respond differently, so please understand this may last less time.

Most patients generally see benefits for about 4- 6 months
