Profhilo

Profhilo® is an effective and natural looking non-surgical facelift treatment, it is a new discovery in facial ageing addressing skin laxity, not just filling lines and wrinkles. Made of 100% HA (Hyaluronic Acid), it nourishes dermal cells and restores firmness of the skin. This treatment will hydrate your skin from the inside out, getting rid of any ‘crepey’ skin.

A skin laxity treatment, Profhilo® uses patented technologies engineered for ‘skin remodelling’, a revolutionary concept of ‘curling’ wrinkles rather than ‘filling’ them. It effectively stimulates the production of both your natural collagen and elastin to renew your skin from within.

Thanks to the unique characteristics of Profhilo®, skin condition can be visibly improved after just 2 sessions, with a 1-month interval, and only 5 injection points on each side of the face. Profhilo® can be used on a number of areas including the full face (including eye area), neck, décolletage, upper arms and hands and is suitable for practically anyone, men and women, from 30 years’ old and with no upper age limit.

Profhilo™ treatment can help to:

  • Increase skin firmness and elasticity
  • Tighten and lift skin
  • Improve skin tone and texture
  • Rehydrated skin
  • Restore radiance

HOW DOES PROFHILO WORK

As a stabilised product Profhilo lasts in the skin around 28 days. During this time the stimulation of 4 different types of collagen and elastin takes place by slow release of HA.

The stimulation results in significant tissue improvement. Therefore we cannot say that Profhilo is a skin booster as it also has a significant tightening / lifting effect on the tissue.

Profhilo delivers great results as a treatment on its own or in combination with other aesthetics treatments currently on offer.

Profhilo FAQ’s

Is it expected to have lumps where the Profhilo® has been injected, and how long will they be there for?

Following on from Profhilo® there is the chance that localised lumps can form where each of the injection sites have been. These lumps will subside usually 4-6 hours after the treatment but they can last up to 24 hours.

Will I need to rest after treatments?

The rest time after this treatment is minimal. When injected using the five-point technique on each side of the face, each insertion is immediately noticeable. However, they start diffusing very quickly and they disappear completely by next day.

After the treatment, it is recommended to avoid physical strain and sports for 24 hours. Please also avoid having further cosmetic procedures for 48 hours. It is not recommended to go to a sauna or have a steamy bath for the first few days either. It’s best to stay out of the sun if any bruising or prolonged swelling occurs.

How quickly will I notice results?

You can expect increased firmness, elasticity and an overall improved quality in your skin for up to six months.

Will people be able to tell I’ve had “work done”?

Usually, people won’t be able to tell you’ve had a treatment, but this depends on the skin condition being treated and the desired outcome. Profhilo® can significantly improve skin laxity by increasing the tissue density some patients have seen some lifting, which can be noticeable. Most patients say they were complemented on how fresh they looked, but hardly ever asked what they had done.

Will there be any side effects?

Hyaluronic Acid is very well tolerated by the skin. The only reported side effects are bruising and mild swelling at the injection sites. These generally disappear in a short period of time and are associated with the needle, not the product.

Is the treatment safe?

Profhilo® was launched in February 2015 in Italy. It’s been used worldwide ever since. Over 150,000 patients have been treated so far with no adverse reactions reported. From a safety perspective, Profhilo® is highly biocompatible because it is made from ultrapure, natural Hyaluronic Acid and is stabilised without the addition of chemical cross-linking agents. This reduces the risk of adverse reactions. The product has also won numerous awards.

How will I know if the side effects are normal, or something serious has happened?

After your treatment, the common effects are mild redness, slight swelling and possible bruising. The treatment area may feel tender to touch and all of these effects are normal, will subside in a few days, but may last up to a week. Each day everything should improve slightly and the area should look more normal and feel better.
