A popular anti-ageing injectable treatment, without the need for botox or filler.
What is Profhilo?
Profhilo is an injection of highly concentrated hyaluronic acid to areas of the face or neck to boost elasticity and hydration. Unlike filler or botox, it is not designed to change or freeze areas of your face. It works to improve the quality of your tissue, remodelling the skin and restoring firmness.
The first of its kind, this is a revolutionary, innovative hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment. It is one of the highest concentrations of this ingredient available on the market and will work effectively to stimulate skin cell receptors, restoring the firmness of your skin.
This treatment is typically administered to the face and neck area where ageing can be most visible. It can also be used to improve the appearance of sagging skin on other areas of the body too such as hands, abdomen and décolletage.
How it works
Profhilo harnesses the Bio Aesthetic Points (BAP) technique meaning the product is only injected in 5 specific areas of the face on each side. This minimises the number of injection points, reduces bruising post-treatment and requires fewer sessions to maintain results.
The 5 points are:
The areas and number of injection points may vary if getting this treatment on others areas such as the neck, decolletage or hands.
What to expect
We completely understand that some people don’t like the idea of needles, but we can assure you that we try to make the treatment as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
The needle used is fairly small and virtually painless when entering the skin’s surface. You may experience some slight stinging but we can offer numbing cream beforehand if this is something you’re worried about.
Following Profhilo, almost instant results can be seen from the first treatment as the formula works to stimulate new collagen and elastin. There may be some tenderness in the areas where the needle went in and in some cases, bruising or redness.
Aftercare recommendations include not wearing makeup for 24 hours after your treatment. Also, we recommend that you avoid strenuous exercise, hot showers, spas or saunas or abrasive skin care.
Profhilo injections can last 6-12 months depending on age, lifestyle and individual skin type. We offer a single treatment or a course of 2 treatments with a cost saving.
