What is Profhilo®
Profhilo® is a totally new type of bio modeller, Rather than relaxing muscles and creating false volume, it stimulates your own collagen and elastin leaving you with tighter, firmer skin and beautiful hydration. The great news is that these effects can be achieved in 2 sessions, 1 month apart with affects being visible from as soon as 1 week after the treatment
Who is it good for?
We usually see clients in their early 30’s onwards who wish to improve the condition of their skin whilst looking very natural.
Profhilo® treatment is a great option if you want to:
- Increase skin firmness and elasticity
- Tighten and lift skin especially around the cheeks and jowls
- Improve skin tone and texture and firmness
- Improve hydration
- Reduce smokers lines around the mouth
- Improve crepey skin on the face, neck, décolletage and body
What happens during the treatment?
During the consultation period, we will discuss your areas of concern (face, neck, decolletage or elsewhere on the body), whilst the treatment is very quick, a topical numbing cream may be applied to make sure you are as comfortable as possible.
Profhilo is injected using a small needle or cannula into 5 key points in the face, these points have been carefully selected to provide the best lifting and tightening of the skin and are in less vascular areas which reduces the likelihood of bruising and swelling.
How will I look directly afterwards?
Most of our clients will look perfectly normal after the treatment, small lumps at the injection site may be visible and these will disappear within a number of hours as the Profhilo® migrates into the skin.
How many treatments will I need?
We recommend 2 treatments a month apart and then a maintenance treatment every 6-12 months depending on the condition of the skin.
What will the results be like?
One of the huge benefits of Profhilo® is how natural the results are, you will look like yourself but with tighter, firmer and glowing skin. Results are often seen within the first week but can take up to a month.
How long is the appointment?
Profhilo® treatment is very quick to perform and the appointment will be around 30 minutes (including numbing time).
What is the aftercare?
There is very little aftercare and you can resume normal activities as you leave the clinic.
What if I am nervous?
It’s perfectly normal to be a little nervous before your treatment, especially if it is your first time, your practitioner will discuss the procedure with you we are available to answer any questions you have beforehand.
What are the risks?
Hyaluronic Acid naturally occurs in the body and therefore is incredible safe to use on any skin type. Due to the consistency of Profhilo, risks are very minimal compared to traditional fillers and muscle relaxers (including bruising). You may experience some redness and slight swelling at the injection site but this will disappear within 2-24 hours.
What are the treatment costs?
Profhilo® is £425 per session, 2 sessions will be required a month apart.
