Profhilo treatment can be used anywhere on the body but is most used in :
Profhilo – Smooth, Lift, Tighten
Profhilo is a unique product injected under the skin in 10 specific points. It introduces Hyaluronic Acid and elastin into the skin which is found naturally in the body. It also stimulates the production of 6 types of collagen and elastin by the skin.
Two treatments are require 4 weeks apart and then a single treatment every six months
to maintain results.Profhilo® Skin Hydration & Collagen Boosting Treatment is highly effective and great for combating ageing, dull or tired looking skin.
Immediately following the treatment there is a noticeable improvement in skin tone, hydration as well as firmness, and lines are minimised. Over the next four weeks the Profhilo treatment works to boost elastin and collagen production, effectively remodelling the skin and giving it a plumper, smoother and firmer appearance.
Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance produced in our body and found in our skin, joints and connective tissue, binds moisture in the skin and aids collagen production. With age hyaluronic acid production slows and the skin looks duller and dehydrated, with fine lines and wrinkles forming. Hyaluronic acid is best known as a ‘filler’ and is usually used to give volume or to contour other areas of the face.
Profhilo contains one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid available for an aesthetic treatment. And due to the development process, which thermally bonds, rather than chemically, the treatment acts as a high-performance hydrator and not as filler. Its gel like consistency distributes smoothly and evenly without the formation of any lumps – a potential risk with traditional fillers. This means it can be used on areas which are difficult to treat with traditional fillers, such as the neck and forehead. Profhilo’s structure also allows it to flow over an extended area to boost hydration and smooth or ‘remodel’ the skin.
