Which areas can be treated with Profhilo?
Profhilo is commonly used for the face but can also be used to treat the neck and hands.
For the face, each Profhilo treatment includes injecting the collagen-boosting liquid into five key points; either side of your cheeks, the nasolabial folds, laughter lines, chin and peri-oral lines, and along the jawline. Profhilo can also be used to target sagging or wrinkled skin in the neck area.
Once the Profhilo injections have delivered hydration to each treatment point, the hyaluronic acid (HA) starts to disperse evenly underneath the skin, to naturally plump, refresh and tighten the whole treatment area.
It gives deep hydration, a glow, firmness and strength to the skin with a very potent anti-ageing effect.
How long does the treatment take per session?
The treatment takes approximately 45 minutes. Profhilo treatment is not painful, but some people may feel a slight sting when the needle is injected into the skin. The treatment itself is quick and easy, and most people only need to undergo two treatment sessions in order to see results.
Who cannot have Profhilo?
Individuals with a known hypersensitivity to hyaluronic acid ha. Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
We recommend a base line treatment and a second treatment 4 weeks later. After this, maintenance treatment sessions can be spaced out every 6 months to help long term effects of boosting collagen and elastin in the skin.
What is the downtime following a treatment?
Very little with mild swelling and possibly some mild bruising. This can be easily concealed with make-up after 24 hours.
How much does Profhilo cost?
Prices are from £300 per treatment.
