Profhilo is an exciting new addition to the skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing injectable treatments we can offer at Wimpole Aesthetics.
It is composed of hyaluronic acid gel, but it works differently to HA dermal fillers. It boosts collagen production to gradually hydrate and plump the skin, softening fine lines.
Rather than revolumise or fill as a dermal filler does, Profhilo works by adding volume throughout the dermis due to its ability to spread through the tissue.
Profhilo can improve skin tone and texture, revitalise dull, tired and ageing skin, increase firmness and elasticity by stimulating collagen production and softening fine lines and wrinkles. It is a fantastic treatment for men and women that have just started to notice the first signs of facial ageing and wish to maintain hydration, but can also deliver dramatic results for older patients.
Am I suitable for a Profhilo treatment?
Profhilo is a fantastic treatment for anyone that’s started to notice the visible signs of ageing and are searching for a subtle all-over skin rejuvenation. It can also deliver dramatic results for older patients, but if there are deep folds or severe loss of skin elasticity, then there may be more appropriate treatments we can recommend.
It is not suitable for patients that have bleeding or immune compromised disorders.
Are there any risks to Profhilo?
It is an injectable treatment, so you may have some bruising and swelling at the injection site as well as a small risk of infection, allergic reaction and nerve damage.
How does Profhilo work?
After a certain age, collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid levels begin to deplete. These are the components of the skin that give it its youthful firmness and plumpness and most skin ageing concerns are a result of their loss.
Profhilo disperses through the dermis, stimulating collagen production. Over the following weeks, you’ll skin will start to look naturally more hydrated, tighter and smoother.
What areas can Profhilo treat?
As well as the face, Profhilo can restore a more youthful appearance to skin on the neck, décolletage and hands.
When will I see the results of my Profhilo treatment?
Results vary depending on the individual. We recommend two sessions, spaced four weeks apart and some patients can see an improvement in their skin tone after the very first session whereas others will notice a difference after their second treatment. The full effects of Profhilo are usually evident between eight and ten weeks after your first treatment.
How long does Profhilo last?
Results can last six months and we recommend maintenance treatments after that.
