If you’re looking for a non-surgical anti-ageing treatment that’s safe, effective and long-lasting then Profhilo could be the answer.
What is Profhilo?
This a gel made up of concentrated hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in the skin and contained in various types of dermal fillers. However, Profhilo is a new technology which works in a different way and is not designed to provide an instant ‘filling’ effect. Instead, the injection of Profhilo acts as an ‘internal moisturiser’ which is injected directly where it is needed without relying on absorption through the skin which makes it highly effective. Profhilo acts as a bio-stimulator and stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity and restore skin thickness and firmness.
How does Profhilo work?
Profhilo contains the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid of any injectable product. When injected into the dermis of the skin the Profhilo stimulates collagen and elastin production and attracts water into the skin. The ageing process means that the skin gradually loses its collagen and elastin fibres as well as a reduction in hydration of the skin, with loss of firmness and skin tone. Profhilo helps to reverse this process by ‘boosting’ the hydration. This is why it is often referred to as a ‘skin booster’.
More than a skin booster!
Profhilo actually does more than simply boosting the skin hydration and has advantages over other skin boosters. Since the hyaluronic acid is very pure it has very good compatibility, which results in a seamless integration with your skin’s own hyaluronic acid which has been reduced due to ageing. By doing this it also stimulates your own collagen and elastin fibres in the skin. The result is that it also helps remodel the skin to provide a firming effect.
How is Profhilo administered?
Profhilo is injected directly into the dermis of the skin. On the face it is injected at multiple points and the hyaluronic acid diffuses into the skin over a certain area. It can also be used on the neck and may be used on the decolletage and hands. When will the effects be seen ? It is important to remember that the effects of treatment are not instant like other true dermal filler materials. Usually 2 treatments are required a few weeks apart. The hydration effect may be seen within a few days but the firming effect on the skin may take about 3 months after the second treatment .
