Where Can You Have Profhilo?
Profhilo has grown in popularity in recent years and is excellent for treating skin that lacks volume and suppleness. It’s a cost-effective, safe, and long-lasting alternative to skin lotions and treatments. So, if you want to restore your skin’s youthful appearance and feel, Profhilo could be the solution you’re looking for.
Wondering where you can have Profhilo? Read on to learn more.
What is Profhilo?
Profhilo is a bio-remodeling substance. It’s made from stabilised hyaluronic acid, which is injected into the skin to minimise skin laxity. Profhilo is one of the most concentrated hyaluronic acid doses available on the market today (64mg HA per 2ml syringe).
It comprises both high (H-LA) and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid (L-HA), which are thermally bonded together using unique NAHYCO technology. When the two forms of hyaluronic acid are combined, a product with significantly higher lifespan is created than if they were utilised separately.
While this may sound intimidating, hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the body. It can also be found in foods such as root vegetables, soy, leafy greens, and citrus fruits such as oranges. For this reason, it’s one of the most often used ingredients in anti-aging and anti-wrinkle skin lotions.
To put it another way, it’s more like an ultra-effective injectable moisturiser than a filler. Profhilo is most commonly used on the face and neck, where wrinkles and drooping skin are most noticeable. It can, however, be used in any place where firmer, younger-looking skin is desired.
Profhilo is appealing because, unlike dermal fillers, it does not alter the form of the face; instead, it creates a fresh, natural appearance and softens fine lines and wrinkles. So the benefit is that you don’t appear ‘done.’
Which Areas Are Treatable With Profhilo?
Profhilo is particularly successful at treating loose skin in the neck, cheeks, and jowls, as well as other places that are notoriously difficult to treat with injectables, such as the:
- Mouth and chin lines
- Neck, chest, and décolletage
- Upper arms
Profhilo Treatment Procedure
The dermatologist will assess your suitability and look for any medical contraindications during your initial appointment. The beautiful thing about Profhilo is that it has no maximum age restrictions and few contraindications because it is a minimally invasive technique.
The collagen-boosting liquid is injected into five key spots on your face, called the Profhilo injection points, beginning directly next to the ears on each side, then the nasolabial fold (laughing lines around the mouth), chin, beneath the eyes, and on the tops of cheeks. Each side of the face receives the Profhilo.
The treatment causes a slight stinging sensation that lasts around 20 seconds. So it’ll be over before you realise! There is no downtime necessary because there are no apparent signs of repeated injections, so you may get back to your everyday tasks right away.
Only 2 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart, yield noticeable results. The effects of treatment can last for up to 6 months.
