All About... Profhilo
What is Profhlio?
Profhilo is the first of its kind - an ultra-pure hyaluronic acid deep moisturiser gel. A popular topical ointment, the hyaluronic acid molecule is actually too large to make it past the epidermis, but, when it is injected, Profhilo stimulates collagen and elastin, and attracts water into the deeper layers of the skin.
What is Profhilo Good For?
Profhilo is a highly effective treatment for a number of aesthetic concerns. A unique subdermal hydrator, Profhilo injections create plumped, radiant looking skin by counteracting skin laxity and improving and restoring firmness. It's useful for treating not just the face and neck but also the décolletage, hands, arms, knees and abdomen area, where it effectively treats skin laxity.
What is the Different Between Profhilo and Dermal Fillers?
Profhilo doesn’t change the structure or shape of the face; both products are made from hyaluronic acid but Profhilo acts as an ‘injectable moisturiser’ and hydrator, rather than a volumizing filler. Both are rejuvenating anti-aging treatments but are injected and act in different ways. Profhilo is injected superficially in small micro injections across the face, neck or hands and improves overall skin quality and restores plumpness in the skin, which is lost in the aging process. Dermal fillers are also a hyaluronic acid gel substance – generally more viscous in structure and can be used to contour, volumise, lift and enhance facial features.
How Long Does Profhilo Last For?
The plumping and lifting effects of Profhilo injections generally last 6 months when two treatments are given one month apart. After that, we recommend getting a top up treatment every 6 - 9 months.
Does Profhilo Work on Hands?
Our patients love Profhilo for its gentle refreshing, brightening and smoothing effects, and it's a great option for using on the skin on the backs of the hands, especially where exposure to the sun, elements and chemicals have resulted in a 'scaly' or 'crêpey' appearance. It's not a filler, rather it's an an ‘injectable moisturiser’ and hydrator, improving overall skin quality and restoring plumpness in the skin, which is lost in the aging process. You can learn about other options for treating signs of aging on the hands in this blog.
