Profhilo® is one of the most recent products product for treating skin laxity.
It consists of one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid (HA) on the market (64mg / 2ml) and therefore not only boosting and hydrating the skin, but also increases firmness and remodels the ageing and sagging tissue.
Profhilo® delivers great results as a treatment on its own or in combination with other aesthetics treatments currently on offer.
As a stabilized 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. It disperses quickly beneath the skin to improve hydration and makes the skin glow, fine lines can disappear and you’ll notice a smoother and tighter skin. There is no need for massage or risk of leaving lumps or nodules. Profhilo is absorbed within a 2cm radius of its injection site, so to treat the face only 10 injection points are needed in total.
To enhance the effect it is recommended to repeat the treatment after 4 weeks. After that you can boost your skin with profhilo every half a year.
Profhilo® is very versatile and can be used in different areas like the face, neck, body and hands.
As with any injectable treatment, there are minor side effects, You could experience a small bruising or swelling. The procedure is very quick and the needle used to administer the treatment is very fine so most patients do not feel any discomfort. Another bonus is that there is no downtime afterwards. This means you are fine to resume your everyday activities as soon as you leave the practice.
HA is hydrophilic, meaning it draws and holds water from your body, so Profhilo acts as a hydrator rather than a filler. This makes it fantastic for those with tired, dull-looking skin, transforming it into firm and luminous skin. This effect takes place within 3-5 days of treatment.
Over the next few weeks collagen and elastin production is stimulated, producing a secondary effect of skin tightening. This is useful because levels of collagen, elastin and Hyaluronic Acid in the skin rapidly drop from the age of 30, resulting in signs of ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles and lacklustre skin. Profhilo acts to reverse some of these changes. The maximum effect of Profhilo is usually seen 2 months after the second treatment.
The downtime following a treatment is minimal, and you should be able to return to normal ‘light’ daily activities immediately after your procedure. However, we recommend that you avoid physical strain and sports on the first day after the treatment, and don’t have a sauna or steamy bath for the first few days. You should also avoid intense sun or UV light exposure for the first few days after treatment.
Your initial consultation is completely free and without obligation. A follow-up appointment without treatment is € 40.
