Profhilo - the amazing new Skin Booster
We are delighted at Dermavisage to be offering the latest and most advanced method of anti-ageing treatment, Profhilo. This skin boosting treatment is already a favourite amongst our clients!
Profhilo brings back the laxity in your skin to give a more youthful appearance and is fast becoming one of our most popular treatments at Dermavisage .
During a Profhilo treatment, Hyaluronic acid is injected into specific areas of your body to help hydrate and plump up your skin and maintain elasticity, where it has naturally reduced over the years. Profhilo can be used to treat the face where there are lines, around the lips, the neck and arms, decolletage, hands and tummies. In fact any part of your body where the skin shows visible signs of ageing.
The advance of Profhilo and the fact that the injectable is hyaluronic acid in its purest form makes our clients feel very comfortable about having this injected in their skin. Particularly since hyaluronic acid is naturally found in our bodies anyway, just in smaller doses, the older we get. In fact, It’s the gradual reduction in the naturally produced hyaluronic acid, that results in the dreaded sagging that occurs in certain areas of our face. Those little tell tale signs that we are actually older than we may seem.
Since Profhilo is injectable, it means that we can be very specific with the treatment and inject it in exactly the areas that need it. The result is that the skin is super hydrated from the inside out, reducing the dreaded wrinkly areas and increasing collagen and elastin production giving you a lovely firmer face and a beautifully remodelled look. All with a substance that our bodies naturally produce.
Profhilo is unparalleled in that it stimulates your body to produce 4 different types of good collagen. It allows the skin to rejuvenate itself, giving you a few extra years of youthfulness.
PRICE: £250 for a single treatment.
* We recommend an initial course of 2 treatments, 4 weeks apart.
How does a Profhilo treatment work?
Profhilo is injected just below the surface of the skin where it disperses quickly and instantly boosts hydration. The reason why the Profhilo treatment works so well is because the Hyaluronic acid, which is a gel like substance, can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water which makes it ideal for keeping the moisture in the skin.
Over the next four weeks after the initial treatment, phase 2 then begins which is where the skin starts producing more collagen, boosting elastin and effectively re-modelling the skin, giving it a smoother and plumper, more youthful appearance. Not too plump though. The treatment will only take you to your most natural previous plumpness, it won’t take you beyond that.
Profhilo distributes really smoothly under the skin giving a completely natural appearance. The improvement in tissue quality after a treatment of Profhilo is quite dramatic, even in challenging areas.
How many Profhilo treatments would I need?
A full treatment of Profhilo consists of two sessions, four weeks apart. If necessary, a further treatment can be given six months later, to prolong the effect.
Profhilo can be used as part of a full skincare routine and a treatment can be given in conjunction with dermal fillers and botox.
What are the risks and side effects of Profhilo?
One of the great things about Profhilo is that it is Hyaluronic acid in its purest form and doesn’t contain any synthetic chemicals. For this reason, it is completely metabolised by the body.
No allergy test is required for Profhilo prior to treatment.
As with all injectable treatments, there is a slight risk of bruising or redness which will normally resolve in just a few hours.
Is Profhilo safe?
Profhilo is made from natural hyaluronic acid which has been stabilised without the addition of chemical agent.
It is considered to be extremely safe and effective and has been described as a true breakthrough in anti-ageing medicine.
Will I see instant results after a Profhilo treatment?
You’ll start to see improvements 4 weeks after the first treatment. The best results are normally 8 weeks after your first treatment since this is when the skin has a real boost in producing its own natural collagen. If you’re planning on looking your absolute best for a special event it’s worth bearing this in mind.
