Profhilo

Is Profhilo right for you?

Deciding if Profhilo Skin Treatment is right for you?

Profhilo skin treatments are most undertaken by men and women over the age of 30 suffering from saggy skin, wrinkles, and dehydrated, dull or sunken skin. This typically happens when the hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin that our bodies produce when we are younger begins to disappear as we age, leaving aging skin looking tired, saggy and creased. Many adults feel self-conscious about these changes, especially when they are premature, and seek cosmetic procedures, like Profhilo skin injections.

There is no upper age limit for this treatment, and it is suitable for reversing and repairing many ageing symptoms. However, it is worth noting that for clients over the age of 60 suffering from more severe aging, the treatment may be either less effective or better when combined with various other treatments. This is largely due to elderly skin having deeper folds to penetrate.

Who should get Profhilo?

WHO IS THE PERFECT CANDIDATE FOR THIS PROCEDURE?

The clinically approved treatment is ideal for individuals suffering from the following:

  • Wrinkles (e.g smokers’ lines, frown lines, crow’s feet)
  • Saggy and excess skin
  • Dry, dehydrated skin
  • Skin that has lost elasticity and shape.

Since Profhilo is an injection that mimics the body’s production of hyaluronic acid, the treatments are far more subtle than other dermal fillers which create a more dramatic change and lift. Therefore, if you’re looking for a subtle treatment that provides youthful and rejuvenating results, Profhilo might be perfect for you.

However, if you’re looking for a more drastic lift and remodeling treatment, you may want to investigate derma fillers or find more advanced surgical procedures to get your desired results.

How does it work?

HOW DOES PROFHILO WORK?

As our bodies age, we gradually produce less collagen and elastin naturally – the cells which provide skin firmness, strength, and shape. Therefore, when the number of these cells drop or weaken, your skin loses its clean and firm shape, creating creases and wrinkles.

Profhilo treatments effectively stimulate the reproduction and replenishment of new collagen in the skin by slowly releasing hyaluronic acid – a natural substance produced by your body that is critical for skin hydration and nutrition. Unlike other treatments, Profhilo doesn’t mask the imperfections but instead gets to the core of remedying them by actively stimulating and encouraging your body to produce collagen and elastin.

During Profhilo treatment, your desired body part will be injected with roughly 2ml of hyaluronic acid-based treatment in around five places. This is injected just below the skin layer where it quickly disperses and spreads throughout the skin, providing instant hydration. The treatment is typically administered over the course of two sessions, within a period of one month.

Consultation

During a consultation, you should get to know the practitioner’s work, ask to see reviews and examples of successful treatments, as well as getting an idea of how long they have been doing it, what qualifications they have in the treatment and how often they provide the service. All of this is a vital part of choosing a good consultant. The more frequently, successfully, and legitimately they have provided the treatment to others, the better. It is also worth asking whether the consultant you have met is the same one providing the treatment, not somebody that is training or far inferior in terms of qualifications.

The consultant should also discuss what you are seeking to achieve from the treatment. This might involve speaking about your current problem areas, insecurities, and any other treatments you have trialled and either got on with or not. By doing this, your consultant should gain a better idea of how the treatment might benefit you. It also allows the consultant to envisage the changes the treatment might make to your skin and give you a vague idea of the results you might hope to achieve.

The consultant should also discuss your suitability for the treatment, as well as make you aware of any risks and potential side effects, regardless of how major or minor these are. If you have any questions on this matter, you should ask and as an expert, the consultant should be able to answer these concerns or queries confidently. It might even be a good idea to write down any questions you have pre-consultation, just to be sure that you are not missing out on any important information.

What to expect?

PRE-TREATMENT

Prior to having Profhilo skin treatments, you are advised to refrain from indulging in alcoholic drinks for at least 24 hours before the procedure begins. You are also strongly advised against taking aspirin or anti-inflammatory medication unless these are necessary to treat chronic medical conditions.

THE PROCEDURE

In the first session, the doctor will mark up the points to be injected, and then inject the first 2ml of Profhilo treatment at 5 separate injection points on each side of your face. If you are having the treatment injected to other body parts such as your neck, your cleavage, or your hands, then the procedure will be similar.

How many treatments?

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NECESSARY?

Within the practice, it is widely recommended to have at least two Profhilo skin treatment sessions to see the most optimal and pronounced results. Within an interval of 4 weeks, doctors recommend having 4ml worth of treatment altogether, with two treatments and 2ml injected during each.

Once the initial two or three sessions are finished to complete the treatment, you may want to top up the treatment every 6 months as this is when the results begin to wear off. This is something that, again, it is best to discuss with a practitioner during your initial consultation and when drawing up a comprehensive treatment plan.

How long does it take?

HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE TO DO?

Profhilo treatment takes around 30 minutes to be completed, per session. During this half an hour period, the practitioner will apply numbing cream, mark out spots for injections and will inject your area of concern in five places for widespread and more effective treatment. Generally, the procedure is quicker than most beauty procedures and is relatively comfortable.

Recovery

Since it is not major surgery, there is no downtime required for recovery after the treatment. However, it is largely advised that you refrain from applying cosmetics, becoming excessively sweaty and oily for a few days post-treatment for the best results. This means avoiding saunas, the gym and make up for a couple of days post-treatment for the product to settle into your skin.

It is not unusual for you to experience some extent of swelling and bruising over the few days that follow the treatment. This is because of the body’s natural response to the needle and injection, as with any clinical or non-clinical injections or harm to skin. In the event of brushing, it is advised to stay away from harsh sun for a few days.

It is recommended that you avoid frequently touching the targeted area and that you don’t engage with intense exercise for at least a day since this will risk displacing or interfering with the Profhilo treatment – which will reduce effectiveness.

Although you are still able to get further cosmetic treatments on that area alongside the Profhilo treatment, we recommend not doing so until at least 2 days after the treatment is complete since this may also affect the treatment’s functioning.

Aside from these restrictions, Profhilo is a non-invasive procedure and therefore allows you to return promptly to your daily routine, so long as you follow that advice.

Potential side effects

Contrary to many other injectable fillers, hyaluronic Acid is relatively unproblematic and well tolerated by the human body because our bodies naturally produce hyaluronic acid anyway, so higher levels of the acid do not trigger many potential side effects and no long-term side effects. This is because the body metabolizes and welcomes the treatment.

Thus far, mild swelling and bruising are among the only reported side effects associated with Profhilo treatment, which are both a natural consequence of injection. Even so, these symptoms often disappear within a few days and are no cause for alarm whatsoever. It is important to recall that any side effects suffered from this injection, if correctly applied, are from the fine needle used to insert the treatment, not the treatment itself.

It is also highly unlikely that individuals will have an allergic reaction to the treatment since Profhilo is free from synthetic chemicals and is only based upon natural body acids. As a result, no allergy tests are required prior to treatment.

With that in mind, if you find that you are suffering any of the following side effects, we strongly advise that you contact your doctor immediately and seek urgent healthcare or advice. These include:

  • Worsening swelling (when your injection sites become gradually more swollen as time passes)
  • If you suffer a severe growing pain
  • Red, pigmented, and hot skin
  • Injection spots looking discoloured following the treatment after at least a day. Be wary of pale or grey discolouration.
  • General sickness, such as nausea, dizziness, frequent pain etc

Everybody is different, so it is important to address any of the above side effects before these result in further and lasting damage. However, this is among the safest aesthetic treatments available, with a very low chance of adverse reactions.

Results

WHAT RESULTS SHOULD I EXPECT TO SEE?

It is difficult to predict exactly what results you will achieve from this treatment since everyone is different and everyone’s bodies act differently. Broadly speaking, however, you should expect to see a smoother, clearer, and more youthful complexion, with minimised wrinkles, creases, and wear. It usually also makes skin look shiny, healthier, and more plump – as many fillers do. The results will likely be less dramatic than some other, more invasive fillers and surgery, but still noticeable. 

HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST?

The results of Profhilo treatments can last up to roughly 6 months, however, this may vary by patient – particularly depending on skin type and age. The Profhilo treatment can work independently as a treatment on its own or in combination with other cosmetic treatments, namely because it is a natural product that is being injected.

After this six-month period or when you begin to see the treatment’s effects wearing away, it is recommended that you can top up treatments if you wish to continue.
