Prophilo Skin Injections
Your face is the first thing that people notice about you. But when your appearance no longer reflects the way you feel on the inside, it may be time for a change.
In time, your skin loses it’s full, firm, youthful appearance. This is the result of the natural ageing process. Over time, your skin becomes thinner or loses its natural elasticity. As a result, it becomes loose and starts to wrinkle
The prospect of treating sagging skin and wrinkles without long incisions and downtime, i.e. with no recovery period, has great appeal to the majority of patients who are looking for subtle improvements or are not ready for a traditional facelift. The new and effective anti-ageing skin care beauty treatment for younger looking skin is Profhilo®.
Profhilo® (Skin stimulator) counteracts skin laxity via reconstructing action of collagen and elastin fibres of the dermal matrix. It contains a high concentration of hyaluronic acid and is being marketed as being useful in the treatment of skin laxity.
The unique characteristics of remodelling skin laxity is easily obtained in only two sessions at our clinic, with a one-month interval. Profhilo is used for the treatment of skin laxity of the face, neck, decollete and hands. This breaking new technology does miracles for your saggy skin. This anti-ageing treatment is almost painless.
Frequently asked questions
How does it work?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance within the body, which is found in the dermis (lower skin levels), it helps to keep skin smooth and hydrated. Hyaluronic Acid levels naturally decrease as we age, resulting in visible signs of ageing (sunken cheeks, lines, wrinkles, lips lose fullness).
Many moisturisers contain hyaluronic acid, but facial fillers containing hyaluronic acid, like Prophilo®, are the only way to replenish the hyaluronic acid deep within skin. Prophilo® fillers mimics the body’s natural depleted hyaluronic acid. Once injected the fillers provide support and structure to the skin, giving a plumped and more youthful appearance.
At Lucy Foster Aesthetics we only use certified Prophilo® products into the skin and is more mouldable to the facial contours for the most natural looking results possible. In comparison, traditional fillers are made with 100% high-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid meaning they are heavier and can’t be manipulated as easily.
What can I expect during treatment?
The smooth consistency of the products in the Prophilo® range allows your medical practitioner to administer them easily and smoothly. They also contain 0.3% lidocaine to reduce injection pain, for a more comfortable treatment experience.
The filler gel is injected under the skin in the target area using a fine needle. The gel will then fill facial lines and wrinkles or adds subtle volume.
Are there any side effects?
As a non-invasive solution to ageing skin there is no downtime associated with this treatment.
Immediately after treatment you may see some redness and swelling at the injection site and it may feel tender to touch.
These side effects typically disappear within 24 hours. Some clients experience temporary bruising in the week following
Prophilo® fillers provide natural facial shaping and are virtually painless due to it smoother consistency and anaesthetic ingredients. This results in little bruising and swelling so downtime is little to none.
How many treatments would I need?
Further treatments will be required to maintain results every 9-12 months as the filler product breaks down.
What results can I expect to see?
Prophilo® fillers mimic the lifting effect of your skin’s natural hyaluronic acid to keep the skin hydrated and elastic. The effects of the filler treatment can last between 6 months and 12 months depending on the type of product we use.
