As we age, the levels of hyaluronic acid found naturally in our skin begin to decrease, causing skin to lose plumpness. Profhilo®, an injectable hyaluronic acid based product, tightens and lifts aging and sagging tissue and provides intense hydration to the skin. It is highly effective not only as a stand alone treatment but also combined with other procedures.
The Profhilo® is injected into five points on each side of your face, which have been identified to reduce the risk to blood vessels or nerves and maximise the diffusion of the product. Once injected, the Profhilo® acts like a sponge, absorbing water and expanding. This gives your skin a plumper and younger appearance, reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
The procedure takes around 30 minutes and you will see a noticeable improvement in skin firmness and tone immediately following treatment.
For optimum results, two sessions of Profhilo® treatment are recommended, four weeks apart. The Profhilo® lasts in your skin for 28 days following treatment, stimulating collagen and elastin. The final results are seen eight weeks after your first treatment, and last for around 6-9 months.
Profhilo can be used virtually anywhere on the body to improve skin texture and hydration and provide a tightening effect- most popular treatment areas include the face, the neck, décolletage, back of hands, upper arms and knees.
