Feb. 20, 2022

Profhilo® is fast becoming one of the UK’s most popular facial treatments. In this article, we discuss the top ten most asked questions about Profhilo® so you can make an informed choice about the right treatment for you.

What is Profhilo® treatment?

Profhilo® is an injectable hydrator which treats the skin from the inside out. Profhilo® has the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid available in aesthetics today and provides lasting and natural results.

How does Profhilo® work?

Profhilo® is injected under the skin and is specially designed to release slowly and evenly over time. Profhilo® is designed to work across the entire face rather than focusing on one area, providing natural radiance and boosting laxity. Once injected, Profhilo® distributes itself evenly, as it is naturally incorporated into the skin.

Who can have Profhilo® treatment?

The body already makes hyaluronic acid and uses it for many processes, one of which includes keeping the skin moisturised. Our body makes less HA as we age, resulting in skin that lacks elasticity, this is what causes wrinkles. Profhilo® replaces and boosts the level of hyaluronic acid production in the skin, which makes it the perfect treatment for those in their 30s and beyond who are experiencing natural loss of skin laxity.

What areas can be treated with Profhilo®?

Profhilo® can be used to target many areas including:

What is the difference between Profhilo® and dermal fillers?

Profhilo® is not a filler, it does not add volume, contour or reshape. Profhilo® is a runny honey consistency unlike filler whish is jelly like. Profhilo® is a skin remodelling treatment which stimulates the body’s natural collagen and elastin response leading to smoother more radiant skin.

Profhilo® will improve your skin quality and is an illustrious addition to any anti-aging regimen. Dermal fillers will enhance the skin local to insertion site rather than across the entire face.

Is Profhilo safe?

Profhilo® is FDA approved and, as long as it is administered by a medical practitioner, it is a very safe treatment.

How long does Profhilo® take to work?

People often start to see results instantly, but it can take a few weeks for the full results to appear.

How long do the effects of Profhilo® last?

The effects can last for up to a year, but most practitioners recommend repeating the treatment after 6 months for the best results.

Are there any side effects from Profhilo®?

Profhilo® is usually very well tolerated by the skin. Some people might experience the usual side effects you might expect from injectable treatments, such as redness or pain at the site of the injection, but the effects will be mild and should disappear within a day or two.

What is the downtime of Profhilo®?

There is little to no downtime with Profhilo® treatment. As with all injectable treatment we recommend no extreme exercise for physical activity for the rest of the day, but you can return to work immediately after treatment and resume normal activity the day after treatment.

Profhilo® is proving to be extremely popular with patients as it naturally supports the skins own functions and produces long lasting results. Talk to Emma today about how Profhilo® can help you.
