Profhilo® is a one-of-a-kind injectable treatment for lax skin. Formulated with one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market, Profhilo® boosts and hydrates the skin while remodeling ageing and sagging tissue from within. Rather than staying in place, like a dermal filler, Profhilo® slowly biodegrades, releasing hyaluronic acid over time. This draws moisture to the treatment area and stimulates collagen and elastin production, providing a dramatic lifting and tightening effect.
Profhilo® is ideal if you’re noticing the first signs of aging. This treatment offers a natural, rejuvenated look without adding volume in specific places.
As we age our bodies stop producing collagen and elastin, both of which help maintain skin firmness and fullness. Over time, we deplete our body’s store of collagen and elastin, and our skin starts to wrinkle, sag, and lose its fullness.
Profhilo® works by stimulating your skin to produce additional collagen and elastin. This “remodels” your skin’s structure so it’s lifted and tightened. Profhilo® also draws significant moisture to the treatment area, plumping and brightening your skin.
To be effective, Profhilo® requires 2 treatments, 4 weeks apart. You will start to see results such as increased hydration and improved skin tone a few days after your first treatment. The full results, including tightening and lifting, can be seen 4 weeks after the second treatment. Results vary from person to person and depend on the laxity of your skin before treatment.
Results typically last around 6-8 months. To maintain the effect, you will need additional Profhilo® treatments.
Before your Profhilo®, you’ll meet with me for a free consultation. I’ll get to know you and your medical history, discuss the areas you wish to have treated, and determine if Profhilo® is the right option for you.
You should avoid alcohol and anti-inflammatory drugs (Aspirin, Ibuprofen) for 24 hours before your treatment.
The whole procedure, depending on how many areas you’re having treated, takes about 30 minutes. We’ll review the treatment areas we discussed in our consultation. I will offer ice or numbing cream if you’re concerned about pain at the injection site. After cleaning the treatment areas, I’ll use a micro needle, to inject Profhilo®.
Once the injections are complete, you’re good to go!
There’s a little bit of downtime after getting Profhilo®. Most people experience minor redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site, which should go away quickly.
After your Profhilo® treatment, you should:
• Avoid makeup immediately afterward
• Avoid other cosmetic treatments like peels or lasers for at least 24 hours
• Avoid vigorous exercise or sweating for 24 hours
• Stay out of the sun until any redness and swelling subside
If you’re uncomfortable after your treatment, you can take Acetaminophen/Ibuprofen, and gently apply a cold compress.
