PROFHILO

Profhilo has been hailed as a revolutionary product for restoring skin lacking in lustre, volume and glow. An injectable skin treatment which produces a refreshed, plumped yet natural and ‘not done’ look, Profhilo® is not used to change the shape of your face, but is an excellent choice if you want to rewind the clock. Profhilo is an injectable skin treatment made from highly concentrated, highly purified hyaluronic acid (HA).  It has a different texture to Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers.  Profhilo®’s runnier consistency means that as it is injected into the skin, it spreads within a 2cm radius of the injection site where it immediately hydrates deep within the skin. It also acts as a ‘bio-remodeller’. It gets broken down after around 28 days, but prior to breaking down, it stimulates significant collagen and elastin synthesis, resulting in plumper, tighter, smoother, more supple skin.

As we age, particularly after 30, the amount of collagen, fat and elastin in the skin decreases. The result is a loss of volume, the appearance of fine lines and a general dulling of the skin. Profhilo is the perfect rejuvenating treatment to combat these signs of ageing​

Primarily, Profhilo® is used to treat the face, but it can also be used to rejuvenate the neck, décolletage, hands, arms and even knees. 

Initially 2 treatments are required.  The second treatment is required 4 weeks after the initial treatment.  The best results will be seen 4 weeks after the second sitting.  In order to maintain results, it is recommended that you have Profhilo® every 4 - 6 months.

How to Prepare

Please avoid alcohol for 48 hours prior to treatment. (alcohol thins the blood which would increase the risk of bleeding and bruising)

Please do not take Aspirin or Ibuprofen for 24 hours prior to your appointment, unless prescribed by your doctor.  Please discuss with your Nurse in more detail (these are blood thinners and would increase the risk of bleeding and bruising)

We will apply topical local anaesthetic cream to numb the area before treatment.
