Who is suitable?
Anyone from age 30+ who wants to keep their skin strong and in good condition, and, as well as for those that have started to notice the first signs of skin laxity or have visible signs of ageing skin. This is an ideal time to start preventive therapies to accommodate the loss.
As we age, we start losing significant collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin after the age of 30. In some individuals, the tissue quality has drops more rapidly causing them to age at a quicker rate. If you feel the quality of your facial tissue has started to become lax or is drooping significantly, or maybe you are looking older than your age, you should consider this treatment option.
In younger people, Profhilio can have a more of a preventive effect by strengthening the skin’s collagen, natural hydration levels, and elastin.
We start the whole process off with a frank conversation to get to know you and your skin. This is when we discuss if there is significant volume loss or deep folds are present, as well as laxity., We then prescribe treatment with Profhilo® to replace lost collagen and elastin, strengthening the skin. This, in combination with other options like dermal fillers after for volumisation has much better results than with fillers on their own.
Results/How long does it last for?
Effects of this revolutionary technology are increased firmness, elasticity and a general rejuvenation that lasts up to 6 months. This will depend on the severity of skin condition, lifestyle and age.
It is recommended to have 2 sessions with a 1-month interval between treatments. Maintenance sessions are recommended depending on your personal response to the treatment.
Does it hurt?
As with most injectable procedures, the patient may experience a slight stinging sensation at the implant site; however, with the PROFHILO® procedure, minimal injection points are required.
You need to schedule a face to face consultation to assess the best treatment for you individually. If you have recently had any other filler or toxin treatment in the same area, you may need to wait before having Profhilo®.
In order to reduce the risk of bruising, please avoid alcohol, and if safe for you to do so, avoid anti-inflammatories, aspirins, and food supplements that cause blood thinning, unless these have been prescribed by your doctor.
Lastly, do not wear make-up on the day of treatment.
With Profhilo, the recovery time is limited. When injected using the five-point technique on each side of the face, each insertion is immediately noticeable. However, they diffuse immediately and are gone by the next day.
After the treatment, it is recommended to avoid physical strain and sports for 24 hours. Please also avoid having further cosmetic procedures for 48 hours.
It is not recommended to have sauna or steam bath for the first few days either. It’s best to stay out of the sun if any bruising or prolonged swelling occurs.
