Profhilo®, a very popular treatment in London, is an innovative “skin booster” injectable treatment that has revolutionised aesthetic skin care. This advanced therapy uses hyaluronic acid to deliver deep hydration and rejuvenation benefits to the skin for a refreshed, youthful complexion.
What Makes Profhilo® Unique?
Unlike other hyaluronic acid fillers designed to plump wrinkles or create volume, profhilo® specifically targets skin laxity and quality. The profhilo® formula contains an optimised concentration and balance of low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid. This allows it to deeply hydrate skin while also stimulating new collagen and elastin.
Some key benefits that make profhilo® unique include:
- Improved firmness and elasticity
- Plumper, more hydrated skin
- Smoother skin texture and luminosity
- Softer facial contours and shape
- How Does Profhilo Work?
When injected into the skin, profhilo's hyaluronic acid molecules bind to water molecules. This creates hydration and volume. The treatment forms a hydrating "scaffolding" in the deeper skin layers that remains for around 28 days after injections.
Throughout this time, profhilo® stimulates the skin to create new collagen and elastin. These proteins are vital for structural support and a youthful bounce. The production of new collagen and elastin results in improved firmness and elasticity.
Profhilo also triggers the skin's repair processes. This enhances cell function and rejuvenates the look of skin.
Who Is Profhilo® Best Suited For?
Profhilo is ideal for anyone looking to improve overall skin quality and early signs of ageing. It excels at treating delicate areas prone to thin skin and dryness, like the neck and hands. Profhilo is also highly effective at rejuvenating and refreshing tired, stressed skin.
The injectable is safe for use on most skin types. It is especially beneficial for those with mature, crepey skin lacking firmness and moisture.
What Areas Can Be Treated With Profhilo?
Some of the main treatment areas for profhilo® include:
- Face - cheeks, forehead, neck, jawline
- Backs of hands
As a skin booster, profhilo® can be used to rejuvenate any area. Here at Injectual our profhilo® treatments are tailored to your unique goals and problem zones.
What Does The Profhilo Treatment Involve?
Profhilo is administered through a series of small injections using an ultra-fine needle. Most patients require 2-3 treatment sessions spaced 4 weeks apart for optimal results.
The injectable is injected just under the skin surface into the dermal and subdermal layers. Profhilo is specially formulated to spread evenly and smoothly once injected.
The treatment takes around 30 minutes per session. Your practitioner will apply some topical anaesthesia as required. You may experience some mild swelling or tenderness after injections.
How Long Do Profhilo Results Last?
Visible improvements in skin hydration and elasticity typically begin around 2-3 weeks after the first injections. These aesthetic benefits then continue to increase over the next 3 months as your body produces new collagen.
Most of our patients enjoy impressive anti-ageing results that last 6-12 months. Some subtle improvements may last up to 18 months. Profhilo® treatment offers longer-lasting rejuvenation compared to many other non-surgical treatments.
Maintenance sessions every 6-12 months are recommended for optimal long-term benefits. This allows your clinician to continue optimising your results.
