By Dr. TRACY MOUNTFORD, MBBS MBCAM on Profhilo®
Profhilo is the only injectable treatment available, specifically designed to reverse this breakdown by stimulating collagen and elastin, to help slow down the process of ageing. As we age, the collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid in our skin starts to break down, which in turn means that our skin starts to sag and lose laxity.
Unlike conventional hyaluronic acid, Profhilo treatment does not volumise. Its higher concentration of HA acts to improve the skin tissue quality by boosting and hydrating the skin as well as lifting and tightening the sagging tissue.
Due to its innovative formula, Profhilo is being heralded as a ‘cure for wrinkles’, as it helps boost the body’s own natural collagen and elastin production.
Profhilo is a non-surgical injectable treatment that tightens, moisturises and strengthens the skin when it is injected across strategic points. Once the high strength hyaluronic acid has been injected into the skin, it will gradually disperse and migrate from the injection site, providing structural support and hydration across a wider area. Once settled, the advanced formulation kickstarts a skin remodelling process by rebooting the body’s ability to generate elastin and collagen proteins. The treatment is divided into 2 injectable treatment sessions that enhance the area being treated. Following these treatment sessions, patients will notice a visible improvement in skin texture and tightness around 1 month after the final session, as collagen and elastin stores are revitalised.
Profhilo is ideal for hydrating, smoothing and strengthening skin across a wide range of areas including the face, neck, arms, knees, hands and décolletage. Its skin tightening properties redefine loose and sagging skin while smoothing out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles thanks to its deeply hydrating and nourishing formulation. Profhilo’s ultra-pure hyaluronic acid structure helps attract and maintain water levels in the deepest layers of the skin, while renewing fresh collagen and elastin stores. The result is a dramatic improvement in the skin’s texture, firmness and radiance in addition to a noticeable reduction in wrinkles.
Following your initial treatment, you should notice an immediate improvement in the texture and tightness of your skin within a month. To maintain the effect, most patients require maintenance treatments twice a year.
The treatment is divided into two to three treatment sessions, 4-6 weeks apart with maintenance treatments as required, but approximately twice a year.
The product distributes itself evenly under the skin. Due to the high concentration of hyaluronic acid, only a few strategic injection points are needed on each side of the face, making the treatment more comfortable for patients, whilst maximizing the uplifting effect.
No. You may experience some slight swelling or bruising at the site of the injections but these should be minor and can be easily covered with mineral make-up.
