Learn how this innovative treatment can reduce skin sagging and leave you with a glowing complexion
Profhilo® is one of the most in-demand aesthetic treatments across the world. Using ultra-pure hyaluronic acid, it can brighten and tighten skin in two treatments.
Suitable for all skin types, Profhilo® is a must-have if you want to boost your skin’s quality and prevent ageing concerns from worsening.
Profhilo® in action
Getting older means our ability to produce collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid begins to decline. Inevitably, this leads to lines, folds, wrinkles and dull-looking skin.
Profhilo® contains ultra-pure hyaluronic acid gel which, when injected just below the skin’s surface, stimulates cells to produce more collagen and elastin while adding much-needed hydration. This leads to firmer, brighter skin that will leave you looking fresh and feeling confident, without changing any of your features.
The treatment can be used on the face, neck and décolletage, as well as the abdomen, knees and inner arms. 10 small injections of Profhilo® will be required to ensure that it spreads evenly across the entire treatment area. Don’t worry about pain – we’ll use numbing cream to ensure discomfort is kept to a minimum.
Following the procedure, the treated area will be slightly red and swollen, and you may have some bruising, which will calm down within a couple of days. It’s best to avoid wearing makeup for 24 hours as it could get into the injection points and cause an infection.
You’ll need two sessions at separate appointments, spaced four months apart. This is to ensure that you get the best results possible.
Profhilo® is a non-invasive, long-lasting treatment that will reduce your skin’s laxity – all too common as we age – giving back its youthful bounce. You can also expect to get your glow back, as the hyaluronic acid used in Profhilo® adds hydration to brighten and rejuvenate dull skin. Overall, you’ll notice a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, as well as an improvement in skin’s tone and texture.
Like all other aesthetic treatments, Profhilo® doesn’t offer a permanent solution as your face will continue to age, but having regular treatments every three months can slow the signs of ageing and help maintain skin quality.
Of course this does require continued investment, but it is definitely worth it if you want to see a noticeable difference in your skin. At Dr Raquel Skin & Medical Cosmetics, Profhilo® treatments start from £325.
The difference between Profhilo®, fillers and skinboosters
Hyaluronic acid is also the key ingredient in some types of dermal fillers and skinboosters, so it’s easy to get mixed up between the three.
The important thing to understand is that there are various types of hyaluronic acid that can be used in different ways. The hyaluronic acid used in fillers is designed to add volume and contour the face and body, which Profhilo® doesn’t do. Skinboosters are great at adding hydration, stimulate collagen but they don’t have the same bio remodelling effect to tighten and improve the skin tissue like Profhilo® does.
A consultation with Dr Raquel will determine what option is best for you. Often, she will recommend combining other treatments with Profhilo® treatments to really boost results.
