As we age, our skin loses its ability to bounce back. This can cause wrinkles, sagging, and a loss of radiance. Profhilo is a highly-popular skin treatment that can help to restore the skin’s important elasticity and firmness, reducing the appearance of ageing.

Profhilo is made from hyaluronic acid (HA) and is injected into the skin. It is not a filler but it is a biostimulating treatment because it gets your cells to produce collagen and elastin. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in our skin already. This is what helps it keep hydrated and plump. 

Profhilo is different from HA fillers in that it is designed to hydrate the skin from the inside out. This means that it can help to improve the overall texture and appearance of the skin, not just fill in wrinkles.

There are many benefits to this skin treatment, including:

  • Improves skin texture: Profhilo can help to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, as well as improve the overall texture of the skin.
  • Increases skin hydration: Profhilo helps to increase the skin’s ability to retain moisture, which can help to reduce the appearance of dryness and fine lines.
  • Restores skin elasticity: Profhilo can help to restore the skin’s elasticity, which can make it look and feel more youthful.
  • Reduces the appearance of sagging skin: This treatment can help to reduce the appearance of sagging skin on the face, neck, and decollete.
  • Provides long-lasting results: The results of the treatment can last for up to 6 months.

If you are looking for a non-surgical way to improve the appearance of your skin, Profhilo can be a good option for you.

The science behind Profhilo

Profhilo works by simply stimulating the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. 

Collagen is a protein that provides structure and support to the skin, while elastin is a protein that gives the skin its elasticity. When collagen and elastin production decreases, the skin starts to lose its firmness and elasticity, which can lead to the formation of wrinkles and sagging skin.

Profhilo contains a high concentration of HA, which helps to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. When HA is injected into the skin, it attracts water molecules, which helps to plump up the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Profhilo also helps to improve the skin’s ability to retain moisture, which can help to prevent further dehydration and the formation of wrinkles.

A non-surgical solution to improving skin

Profhilo is suitable for people who are looking for a non-surgical way to improve the appearance of their skin. It is especially suitable for people who are starting to see the signs of ageing, such as fine lines and wrinkles, or who have sagging skin on the face, neck, or decollete.

How is Profhilo administered?

Profhilo is administered by a healthcare professional using a very fine needle. 

The treatment is not a complicated treatment, and normally administered in two sessions, one month apart. Each session takes about 30 minutes.

The side effects of Profhilo

Profhilo is a safe and effective treatment with few side effects. Some people may experience mild side effects, such as redness, swelling, or bruising in the area treated. 

The good news is that these side effects are usually temporary and go away on their own within a few days. A practitioner would tell you about the risks and further information during the initial consultation.
