As we age, our faces begin to show the effects of gravity, sun exposure and years of facial muscle movement, such as smiling, chewing and squinting. The underlying tissues that keep our skin looking youthful and plumped up began to break down, often leaving laugh lines, smile lines, crow’s feet or facial creases over the areas where this muscle movement occurs.
Profhilo is a new anti-aging approach that helps to counteract skin laxity of the face and in areas difficult to treat such as the neck, decollete, hands and arms.
Non invasive with little down time, Profhilo is biocompatible integrating into the tissue restoring the levels of hyaluronic acid naturally found in the skin.
WHAT IS PROFHILO?
Profhilo is a two course treatment performed in consecutive months apart. Profhilo is a mesotherapy product, neither a dermal filler. It is a stabilised hyaluronic acid without any chemical cross-linking agents, used to treat skin laxity. It aims to hydrate and stimulate more collagen production and rejuvenate the dermis. Highly biocompatible, it is made from natural hyaluronic acid and stabilised without cross-linking agents.
HOW DOES PROFHILO WORK?
Profhilo is a course of two sessions, spread one month apart. Post maintenance treatment (after the initial two sessions) is four months’ later.
The product is injected into five areas, where the product, once injected immediately starts spreading around the area with an immediate tightening effect. There is little down time, however there may be slight tenderness around the injection site that subsides within 48 hours.
Patients have found that there skin feels more hydrated with more of a ‘spring’ effect of elasticity. It is not a dermal filler, but helps to strengthen and tighten fine lines and skin laxity. Maximum results are noticed after the initial two sessions. Improvements in lifting and tightening of the skin is visible.
