Anti-wrinkle - Profhilo®
What is Profhilo®?
Profhilo® is an injectable hyaluronic acid
Profhilo® naturally stimulates the production of collagen and elastin to significantly improve skin quality, reduce lines and wrinkles and contour the face. This injectable anti-ageing treatment is designed to address skin that is losing its elasticity and firmness with age.
What is involved in the treatment?
Profhilo® is injected into the skin in a specific pattern depending on the area to be treated. Two treatments are required, 4 weeks apart. The first to stimulate, the second to ‘boost’ and ensure longevity.
What can I expect after treatment?
Immediately after the procedure, you can see small bumps, much like an insect bite or bee sting, at the site of the injection. These are very easy to cover usually and can take up to 24 hours to settle
While you may see an improvement immediately after the first treatment, the best results are visible around 4 weeks after the second treatment. After 8 weeks, your skin will also appear more hydrated, healthy and youthful. The injections improve the firmness and elasticity of the skin. Profhilo generally lasts 6 months if 2 treatments are given one month apart.
Treatment is not recommended if you are suffering from any skin infection in or near the treatment area or are unwell in any way (even a cold).
If you are taking any medicines which affect bleeding, such as aspirin or warfarin.
If you are currently or have recently completed a course of Roacutane (acne treatment) in the last 18 months.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
