Profhilo Skin Remodelling Treatment
If you are experiencing signs of ageing and losing elasticity, Profhilo can be one of the suitable treatments for you. Profhilo enables the skin to work from inside to replenish and heal itself.
Profhilo works across the skin’s architecture in the overall face and neck treatment to bring life back to the skin and offer a more youthful and rejuvenated look and feel. it delivers “weightless” volume, which is subtle so you look fresh and rejuvenated.
Profhilo works by stimulating the collagen and elastin of the skin providing plumping and lifting effect, and skin tightening.”
What is Profhilo?
Profhilo is a ‘beneath the skin’s hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment. It is made with the patented NAHYCO® technology. This results in a hyaluronic acid injectable gel, which has a prolonged stimulating activity on the dermal cells. When injected into the skin, Profhilo stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity and improve and restore the firmness of the skin.
Profhilo is one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market, Profhilo not only boosts and hydrates the skin but also remodels ageing and sagging tissue. The most common areas of treatment include the face and neck and can also be used for the décolletage, hands, arms, knees and abdomen area where it would effectively treat skin laxity. The treatment is suitable for men and women as well as offers skin benefits for patients of all ages.
How Does Profhilo Work?
- Pure hyaluronic acid is precisely injected into the area being treated. Unlike wrinkle-reducing and dermal filler treatments, Profhilo stimulates collagen and elastin, attracting water to the deeper layers of the skin.
- As a stabilised product, the activity on dermal cells will last longer than that of a non-stabilised gel. During this time the stimulation of four different types of collagen and elastin takes place by slow release of hyaluronic acid.
- The simulation results in significant tissue improvement. Therefore, we cannot say that Profhilo is a skin booster as it also has a significant tightening/lifting effect on the tissue.
Which conditions can Profhilo treat?
- Fine lines and deeper wrinkles
- Dryness and dehydrated skin
- Loss of elasticity (sagging)
- Loss of volume in hollow areas such as the lower cheeks
- A dull or uneven skin tone and texture
Am I suitable candidate for Profhilo?
If you are experiencing skin ageing, then you are a suitable candidate for Profhilo, and you can benefit from the skin rejuvenating properties of Profhilo. However, we at NeuGlow always recommend prior consultation with our Aesthetic Doctor before any treatment to understand your skin condition and requirement and offer you suitable treatment options.
During the Consultation our Aesthetic Doctor will assess your individual facial concerns, check your medical history and answer any questions you might have about the Profhilo treatment. Once this initial meeting has taken place and you are informed about the details of the treatment we can proceed further.
What happens during a Profhilo treatment?
During the Profhilo treatment, you will be asked to relax in one of our treatment rooms. Your skin will be cleansed and numbing cream applied. This takes around 30 minutes to take effect and will ensure your comfort throughout the treatment. Once your skin is numb, A practitioner will inject the Profhilo solution into several key areas of your face and/or neck. Once this is complete, you will be able to return to your daily activities with no clinical downtime.
Is Profhilo treatment Painful?
There can be some sensation with Profhilo as we are using needles to apply the product to the skin. However, as a topical anaesthetic is applied before your Profhilo injections, this will minimise any discomfort and will ensure that the treatment is not painful.
What results can I expect from Profhilo treatment?
As Profhilo is usually administered in a course of 2 sessions, 1 month apart for optimum results, you may start to see some results after 3 to 4 weeks and the full results at week 8.
Expect your skin to be more hydrated, toned and plump in both looks and feel. Fine lines can be reduced and your skin can appear smoother and more evenly textured. If you experience more advanced signs of skin ageing, another treatment, 6 months after the initial course, may be recommended for absolute optimum results.
Is there any downtime after Profhilo treatment?
There is no ‘clinical’ downtime following Profhilo treatment (meaning that you won’t need time to rest or recover at home). However, there may be some ‘cosmetic’ downtime, where you may notice small localized small bumps where the injections have been administered.
This is very normal and the lumps will subside as the product disperses, in around 24 hours. You might also experience a little swelling and slight bruising, where the needles have been applied to the skin. These reactions are all common and nothing to be concerned about.
How long will the results from my Profhilo treatment last?
Your skin will look and feel more radiant and youthful, for up to 6 months. However, every patient responds differently to cosmetic treatments. Certain lifestyle choices such as smoking, sun exposure, excessive cardiovascular exercise, a poor diet and consuming excessive amounts of alcohol could mean that you may need to return to the clinic sooner, for another treatment. If you maintain a good skincare regime and look after your general health, the results may more likely to last the maximum duration.
