What is Profhilo?
A multi-award-winning product, Profhilo is a series of injections that contain very high concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is slowly released into the skin. Profhilo has many celebrity fans, and for good reason. A truly unique product, Profhilo rehydrates, smooths and plumps up the skin, lifting and tightening and making you look refreshed and radiant.
Once injected into the skin, the HA spreads out and then acts like a sponge, absorbing water and expanding, intensely hydrating the skin and making the skin look healthier and plumper. This process lasts for around a month, and during this time it stimulates the development of new HA, collagen and elastin, resulting in a significant tightening and lifting effect.
What skin conditions/issues does Profhilo treat?
Profhilo is ideal for improving skin texture, laxity, crepey skin, and a lack of radiance/dull complexion. Profhilo can be used on the face, neck and hands. Profhilo also works well in combination with other aesthetic treatments.
What happens during a Profhilo treatment?
Following a consultation where we will discuss the procedure in detail, together with your treatment aims, an anaesthetic cream will be applied. Profhilo is delivered into the skin via a series of ten injections (five each side). Treatment time is approximately 45-minutes.
Is a Profhilo treatment painful?
The procedure is usually well-tolerated as numbing cream is applied before the procedure. A slight stinging sensation is usually felt when the product is administered.
How many Profhilo sessions are required for great results?
Two treatments, one month apart, are recommended for best results. Top-up treatments are recommended once or twice a year.
