Profhilo is an exciting and award-winning new type of injectable that focuses on bio-remodelling. In other words, it encourages the collagen and elastin fibres within your skin to lift and tighten. You might also hear Profhilo referred to as ‘hydralifting’ because it hydrates and lifts the skin.
With just two treatments administered 28 days apart, Profhilo can visibly give your skin a much younger appearance, leaving it dewy, slightly plumper, smoother, firmer and with a healthy glow.
Profhilo stimulates the growth of four different types of collagen and elastin to create a more youthful, revitalised look that can last for up to six to eight months.
It can be used on its own or to complement other injectable treatments.
It doesn’t add volume or ‘fill’ in the same way as dermal fillers but instead supports the underlying structure and tissues of your skin to improve their overall health.
One area where this really shows is around the cheekbones, which tend to take on the more rounded appearance of our younger days. The skin around the eyes looks rested and smoother too.
This is an ideal treatment for firming up and smoothing out crepe-textured skin on your neck as well as minimising accordion (smile) lines around your mouth and marionette lines that run from the nose to the chin. It’s also fantastic for fading away acne scars.
People will be pulling you to one side to ask what your healthy skin secret is!
Profhilo uses a high concentration of biofermented high- and low-molecular weight hyaluronic acid without synthetic chemicals. This purity and absence of additives offers greater safety and fewer side effects.
You’ll be asked to come to Aesthetics Lab for an initial consultation. During this appointment, we’ll take a complete medical history and find out as much as possible about your treatment goals. We’ll also explain a bit more about the patented science behind Profhilo and what you can expect from this treatment. Please feel free to ask lots of questions – we will always give you an honest answer.
A treatment with Profhilo usually involves 10 injections into specific points of your face (five on either side). We use ultra-fine needles and most people find the treatment incredibly comfortable.
Like all of our injectable treatments, Profhilo is administered by our very experienced Aesthetics Doctor, Dr Liesel Holler.
You may find that you have small bumps at the injection sites for three to four hours after your treatment where the product has yet to fully disperse. Generally speaking, Profhilo is great for minimising the chances of bruises and swelling but every person differs.
The results of your treatment should start to be visible after seven days and will continue to improve over several months.
The hyaluronic acid in Profhilo takes just 28 days to break down within the body so we always recommend a second appointment after four weeks. Together, these two treatments kick start a chain reaction of collagen and elastin production that should be visible for the next six to eight months.
Many people choose to have one or two top-up appointments throughout the year.
