How does Profhilo® treatment work?
Are you fed up with loose, dull skin around the face? Then, the Profhilo® treatment could be an excellent option for you. In this article, we’re answering the question, how does Profhilo treatment work?
What is Profhilo treatment?
Profhilo® is an injectable treatment used to tighten areas of the skin. The injection includes hyaluronic acid, which is commonly used to fill areas affected by wrinkles. Dermal fillers are often used to enhance areas. For example, they can be injected into the lips for lip enhancement.
The hyaluronic acid used in a Profhilo treatment works through slow release, which helps with stimulating collagen and elastin. Profhlio combines a low molecular weight of hyaluronic acid and a high molecular weight of hyaluronic acid. This combination provides a number of benefits.
Elastin and collagen production help to support skin elasticity. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen and elastin, which often causes the skin to sag in areas. Skin laxity is one reason why many people turn to an injectable anti-ageing treatment.
Where is Profhilo treatment used?
Sagging skin can occur on many areas of the body. However, the area that most people struggle with is around the face and neck. Profhilo can be used in several places to reduce the appearance of loose skin and aid collagen production.
The treatment can be used in the following areas:
- Top sides of cheeks
- Lines around the mouth
- Nasolabial folds
- Side of the face
- Around the chin and neck area
A beauty therapist should conduct a thorough assessment of your skin before beginning the treatment. During the consultation, they may ask you about your skin concerns and what you expect to achieve from the treatment. They can advise you on the most appropriate treatment for your needs.
The face will be prepped accordingly, depending on the injection site chosen. After this, the Profhilo is injected over two sessions.
How does Profhilo treatment work?
The Profhilo treatment is a reasonably advanced skin booster. Its clever ingredients work together over time to provide some fantastic results to combat the signs of ageing.
The Profhilo injections are completely BDDE-free. This is an appealing prospect for many people looking to enhance their skin. In addition, the treatment session doesn’t last long and only requires very fine needles to be used.
For the treatment to be effective, hyaluronic acid is slowly released to trigger the production of four types of collagen and elastin. This process improves the body’s tissue, allowing for improved skin quality and a more desirable appearance on the skin’s surface.
Profhilo is a stabilised product, which means that it continues to release in the body for up to four weeks. Many people wonder how many treatments you need, and for the best results, we recommend another Profhilo treatment after four weeks have passed. This second treatment will enable you to get the best results from your non-surgical aesthetic treatments.
How long do the results last from Profhilo treatments?
After the recommended full treatment, four weeks apart, your results should last up to six months. Your practitioner may be able to provide you with a more accurate date following the treatment. The Profhilo results may vary, but our therapists are always happy to answer any further questions and provide advice.
What are the benefits of Profhilo treatments?
This two-part treatment has many benefits, and nothing quite like it is available. The treatment supports new collagen and elastin production, lifts the skin to appear more youthful, improves overall skin tone and texture and rehydrates the skin.
These injectable treatments are a great option to consider if you’re feeling fed up with loose skin around your face. With precise injection sites and its slow release, you can feel more radiated and youthful in no time.
Profhilo treatment aftercare
Due to the treatment involving minimal injections, there is very little recovery time required. Many people find that they can continue as normal following the treatment. As with all injections, there are some side effects to be aware of, such as mild swelling and redness, although these should not last long.
Your therapist will provide you with all of the necessary information on aftercare. This may include advising you not to complete any strenuous activities and avoid saunas and steam rooms for a short while after the treatment.
You should also avoid wearing make-up, having a steamy bath and being exposed to intense sun. For maximum effect, you should follow all aftercare advice after the two treatments.
