Profhilo a Revolutionary Game Changer in Skin Rejuvenation!

Do you want to know what all the Profhilo hype is about?

Great! Because we’re here to answer some of the most common questions new patients have about Profhilo and let you know how to easily boost your skin’s health and hydration.

What is Profhilo?

Profhilo is a relatively new skin booster treatment that is quickly gaining popularity in the world of cosmetic medicine.

It’s a type of injectable treatment that contains a high concentration of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a substance naturally found in the skin. When injected into the skin, Profhilo spreads out and hydrates the surrounding tissue, giving a plumping effect and improving skin texture and tone. It stimulates collagen and elastin production which helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, making the skin look more youthful and radiant. It’s also known as an "injectable moisturiser” because it delivers deep hydration to the skin in a non-surgical way, providing a natural and refreshed look to the skin.

Why is Profhilo considered a “game changer” in skin rejuvenation?

Here are just a few reasons why Profhilo treatment is such a game changer in skin rejuvenation:

Unique HA formulation: Profhilo’s unique formulation of hyaluronic acid is designed to spread evenly throughout the skin, rather than just sitting in one area. This helps to improve the overall skin quality rather than just targeting specific wrinkles or lines.

Bio-remodelling effect: Profhilo stimulates the production of collagen and 4 different types of elastin; two important components of healthy, youthful skin. This helps to improve skin texture, firmness, and overall quality.

Non-invasive: Profhilo is a non-invasive treatment that requires no downtime, making it an attractive option for those who want to improve their skin very quickly without undergoing surgery or other more invasive procedures.

Overall, Profhilo's unique formulation and ability to improve the overall quality of the skin make it a game changer in the world of skin rejuvenation. It is a safe, effective, and minimally invasive option for those looking to improve the appearance and health of their skin.

Where on the body can it be used?

Profhilo is such a versatile treatment that it can be used to improve the appearance and quality of skin in several areas of the body. The most commonly treated areas include:

Face: Profhilo can be used to treat multiple areas of the face, including the cheeks, chin, temples, and around the eyes. This is the most popular area.

Neck: The neck is a common area that can show signs of ageing, and Profhilo can help improve skin quality and reduce sagging, avoid ‘turkey neck’.

Decolletage: The chest area is another that can show signs of ageing, and Profhilo can help improve skin quality and reduce wrinkles and fine lines.

Hands: The back of the hands are often a giveaway of someone’s age. Profhilo supports skin quality and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Abdomen, knees and elbows: Profhilo treatment is particularly effective in areas where the skin has lost volume and elasticity, and where there are fine lines and wrinkles such as the knees and elbows.

Is Profhilo treatment right for me?

Profhilo is a treatment that can benefit a wide range of age groups, from those in their 30s to those in their 60s and beyond. However, the treatment is most effective for individuals who are experiencing the first signs of ageing, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of skin elasticity.

It's worth noting that the best candidates for Profhilo treatment are those with relatively good skin quality to begin with, as the treatment is designed to enhance and improve existing skin quality rather than correct more severe signs of ageing. As with any cosmetic treatment, it's important to have a consultation with a qualified practitioner to determine if Profhilo is the right option for you, and to discuss the best treatment plan to achieve your desired results.

How can you extend the effects of Profhilo treatment?

There are several things you can do to help prolong the effects of Profhilo treatment and maintain your results for as long as possible:

Follow a good skincare routine: Proper skincare is essential for maintaining healthy, youthful-looking skin. This includes cleansing, moisturising, and protecting your skin from the sun with a good quality sunscreen. Your practitioner may also recommend specific skincare products to help maintain the effects of your Profhilo treatment.

Stay hydrated: Drinking plenty of water and keeping your body hydrated can help improve skin elasticity and maintain the results of your Profhilo treatment.

Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption: Smoking and drinking alcohol excessively has been shown to damage the skin and accelerate the ageing process, which can undermine the effects of your Profhilo treatment.

Avoid excessive sun exposure: UV radiation from the sun damages the skin and causes premature ageing. It's important to protect your skin from the sun by wearing protective clothing and applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.

Consider maintenance treatments: Profhilo is not a permanent solution, and its effects will eventually wear off. However, you can help prolong the effects of your treatment by having regular maintenance treatments at intervals recommended by your practitioner.

By following these tips and working with your practitioner to develop a personalised treatment plan, you can help maintain the effects of your Profhilo treatment and enjoy healthy, youthful-looking skin for longer.

Is Profhilo better than dermal fillers?

Profhilo and dermal fillers are both non-surgical cosmetic treatments that can help improve the appearance of the skin. However, they work in different ways and have different benefits, so it's difficult to say whether one is universally better than the other.

As we know, when injected, Profhilo spreads beneath the skin and works to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. The result is a subtle improvement in skin quality, with increased hydration, elasticity, and firmness.

Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are also injectable treatments that use a variety of materials to add volume to specific areas of the face, such as the cheeks, lips, or under-eye area. Dermal fillers can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of ageing by filling in areas that have lost volume or structure.

So, which treatment is better for you really depends on your specific skin concerns and desired outcomes. Profhilo may be a better option if you're looking for an overall improvement in skin quality and texture in a rather safer way, while dermal fillers may be a better option if you're looking to add volume to specific areas of the face.
