Profhilo

What is Profhilo?

Profhilo is a bio-remodelling skincare treatment which concentrates on the laxity of skin and promotes hydration naturally.

This treatment is a breakthrough in aesthetic technology and should not be mistaken for a dermal filler nor a mesotherapy treatment.  It is currently the only product in the world of this kind which makes it so special and unique.

 

How does Profhilo work?

Ok, so here’s the science bit first.  Profhilo is made from high doses of stabilised, non-crossed link Hyaluronic Acid.

As we get older, our skin becomes thinner and loses its elasticity which inevitably leads to fine lines and wrinkles.  Profhilo encourages the skin to regenerate itself by promoting elasticity, firmness and smoothness.  Profhilo brings back natural rehydration to the skin and boosts collagen that most face creams, serums and lotions cannot.

Profhilo is injected into the skin’s layers at 5 injection points in one area.

 

Who is Profhilo for?

Profhilo is for anyone that has signs of ageing.  Originally, Profhilo was for patients between 40 to 60 though there is no real upper age limit.  However, younger clients will benefit from the preventative results that Profhilo offers.

 

Where can I have Profhilo injected on my body?

Profhilo is perfect for the face but can be used almost anywhere on the body where hydration is needed or where skin is loose and/or thin.  Patients can have Profhilo in their neck, hands, knees, décolleté (upper chest), arms and belly area.

 

When do I need to have this Profhilo treatment?

Whenever you feel ready or when you think your skin is changing.  It doesn’t necessarily mean you have to wait until you start to see signs of ageing or wait till 40.  After 30, our body has less collagen, elastin and Hyaluronic Acid, so we should preserve and look after what we have left.

Profhilo consists of a 2-step treatment which need to be undertaken 4 weeks apart.

After the first Profhilo treatment, around 4 weeks later, patients will see an improvement in the texture of their skin.  Then, again, after the second treatment, patients will be able to see a further change where the skin will look more hydrated, youthful and tighter.

 

Who will do Profhilo treatment for me?

As with all of our services, only the doctor will do this treatment.

 

Anything else I need to know about Profhilo?

There are very few risks with having Profhilo.  As with any injected treatment, there may be some bruising or swelling.  Allergic reactions, infection, vascular compromise and nerve damage are possible though these are rare.  There is no downtime or rest needed after treatment.

    Preparation

    Your consultation with Dr Aesthetica will consist of evaluating your full medical history and lifestyle including what previous treatments have been undertaken and concerns or symptoms that are being experienced. This will determine whether you are a safe candidate for Profhilo.

    Treatment

    The treatment itself will last around 10 to 20 minutes depending on the size and/or the number of areas.  A topical anaesthetic can be applied before treatment begins, to make the procedure more comfortable. After treatment, Dr Aesthetica will provide you with after-care information.

    Recovery

    Recovery is minimal, often with no downtime.  You may experience sensitivity for up to 24 hours.  Though swelling and/or bruising can be present, this is usually minimal. You will need to refrain from touching or rubbing the treated areas for around 12 hours.

    Result

    Results will become visible over a period of a few weeks and then again after the second treatment.  Results will last around 6 months, after which you can have a secondary Profhilo treatment.
