Profhilo is a unique skin remodeling treatment that is designed to help remodel crepey, sagging, and wrinkled skin. It is also created to treat skin laxity on the face and neck. Profhilo has a stimulatory effect on the skin and it works by producing elastic and collagen that lift and tighten the skin, giving it a plump and youthful look.
The results of Profhilo skin treatment can last from six to nine months. However, it can also vary depending on some important factors like age and skin type. Additional sessions might be recommended to prolong the effect of the treatment. Profhilo also helps restore the levels of hyaluronic acid that is naturally found in the skin.
What is Profhilo?
Profhilo is an injectable made of a high concentration of hyaluron. Hyaluron is naturally present in the skin but typically declines with age. Profhilo’s unique formulation also works by promoting collagen formation and skin hydration. Profhilo’s consistency is similar to runny honey. Its unique formulation is also free from additives.
Unlike other anti-aging treatments, Profhilo uses (hyaluronic acid) HA to treat skin laxity on the neck, face, hand, and decolletage. The treatment also minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Hyaluronic acid also works like a sponge that holds onto water, giving the skin a glowing, dewy, and youthful appearance.
In addition, hyaluronic acid also has plumping action. The gel will fill spaces to give you plumper skin. Amazingly, aside from reducing those deep wrinkles and lines, it also gives the skin resiliency. Also, when the skin is injured, hyaluronic acid production will increase to help in the skin’s healing process.
The skin contains at least half of the body’s total volume of hyaluronic acid. However, natural HA is constantly produced and broken down in just a few days. As you age, the hyaluronic acid levels will drop. This is most noticeable in women as they experience menopause.
Who Would Benefit from Profhilo?
Since Profhilo is a skin rejuvenation treatment, anyone can benefit from it. For those with youthful skin, it can help promote healthier skin with a radiant and dewy appearance. For those with dehydrated or sagging skin, Profhilo helps you achieve a firmer, hydrated, and healthier skin.
As a treatment, Profhilo can help address the following:
- Dull skin
- Uneven skin tone
- Dehydrated skin
- Uneven skin texture
- Poor skin laxity
What to Expect During a Profhilo Treatment Session?
This treatment requires placing the product under the skin using a fine needle. Points are carefully chosen to maximize the product’s lifting action and ensure safety. Profhilo will spread evenly throughout the surrounding tissues to stimulate elastin and collagen production and hydrate the skin.
To see results, you need to have two treatments on the neck or face 4 to 6 weeks apart. For the decolletage and hands, you need at least three treatments 4 to 6 weeks apart. After 6 to 9 months, you might notice the effects wearing away. You have the option to top up treatments and combine Profhilo with other cosmetic treatments.
What Can You Expect After the Treatment?
Likely side effects of the treatment can include mild swelling, itching, tightness, and redness. The good news? They only last for a day or two. It is recommended that you avoid putting on makeup and doing strenuous exercises the first 24 hours after the treatment.
You need to also avoid exposure to intense sunlight for 2 to 3 weeks after the procedure. To enhance your results, you need to complement the treatment with the use of sunscreen and a good skincare routine.
