How To Treat Skin Laxity With Profhilo

By Dr. TRACY MOUNTFORD, MBBS MBCAM

Skin laxity is a big issue predominantly for women in the 50-plus age range who are losing firmness and elasticity in their skin. Telltale signs of ageing start to show more, mostly in the neck, jawline, upper arms, decolletage, even on the inner thighs and around the knee area.

In the past, there weren’t any treatments or technologies that would address skin laxity well. One of the newest innovations today for this concern is a treatment called Profhilo which can improve skin laxity to improve texture and tighten the skin.

Profhilo is injected at strategic points; the product immediately starts spreading, due to the high concentration of hyaluronic acid. At the point of injection, it raises a little ‘bleb’ that looks a bit like an insect bite, which usually goes down after a few hours.

The treatment is usually performed over two sessions, about a month apart. It stimulates four different types of elastin and collagen, resulting in significant skin improvement and improving skin health.

Profhilo can be combined with other traditional skin tightening and lifting treatments such as Ultherapy or Thermage as well as dermal fillers to optimise results.
