Profhilo InjectionsRejuvenate & Hydrate Your Skin Younger
The first of its kind, Profhilo® is a revolutionary ‘beneath the skin’ hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment, made with the patented NAHYCO® technology. This results in a unique hyaluronic acid injectable gel, which has a prolonged stimulating activity on the dermal cells. When injected into skin, Profhilo stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity and improve and restore firmness of the skin.
Profhilo can be used to treat:
Nose to mouth lines
Chin / jawline / Prejowl sulcus
Marionette lines (mouth-to-chin)
Under eye bags / Tear-Troughs
Facial folds and wrinkles
Acne scars / pitted scarring
One of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market, Profhilo not only boosts and hydrates the skin, but also remodels ageing and sagging tissue. The most common areas of treatment include the face and neck and can also be used for the décolletage, hands, arms, knees and abdomen area where it would effectively treat skin laxity. The treatment is suitable for men and women as well as offering skin benefits for patients of all ages.
At your consultation, your practitioner will explain the procedure to you. Profhilo will be injected just below the skin’s surface to improve hydration. It makes the skin glow and appear smoother, and can also help reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Profhilo injections are most commonly used for facial areas. However, they can also be used to rejuvenate other areas of the body including the neck, hands, arms and knees.
The recovery process following profhilo injections is minimal, and you should be able to resume everyday activities following the procedure. However, it is recommended that you avoid physical exercise on the first day after the treatment, and steamy baths for the first few days. You should also avoid UV light or direct sunlight for the first few days.
