Profhilo® has unique, regenerative powers and can achieve complete rejuvenation of multiple areas using its innovative bio-modelling approach. It stands out from other treatments because it contains the highest, and purest, concentrations of hyaluronic acid – without any chemical agents – that keeps working weeks after the treatment and is one of the more natural anti-ageing injectable treatments we offer!
What is Profhilo®?
Contrary to the belief of those who misunderstand it, Profhilo® is not a dermal filler, but a bio-remodelling substance which helps the skin repair itself. It is the very first BDDE-free, stabilised HA-based injectable product and superb for treating conditions such as skin laxity and signs of ageing like dehydration, fine and deeper lines and wrinkles. Here at Mariposa Laser & Skin Care we will assess your entire facial anatomy as a whole and recommend a bespoke treatment plan, based on your individual requirements in a preliminary consultation, prior to any treatment taking place, so you know in advance that Profhilo® will benefit you.
Profhilo® can effectively treat the skin in the following areas:
We use a 5-point BAP technique, injecting into specific areas of the face. This minimises risk and maximises the dispersion of the Profhilo® product into the areas which most need it. Unlike traditional thick or cross-linked dermal fillers which usually require just one treatment for optimum results, a treatment with Profhilo® consists of 2 treatment sessions, 4 weeks apart. After 8 weeks after the initial session, the area will be assessed and we shall take a look at the results and advise whether a third treatment may be necessary. This is more for cases of advance ageing and where there is a requirement for a more intensive treatment.
Profhilo® is an extremely effective non-surgical face lifting treatment, highly effective for reducing wrinkles, increasing the skin’s firmness and a ‘super’ hydrator for very dehydrated and lacklustre skin, which is losing bounce and plumpness. This treatment will not augment or change the shape of your facial features, like traditional dermal fillers; rather it will encourage your skin’s natural healing responses to release its natural beauty from within. Profhilo® ‘communicates’ with the skin on a cellular level to help it to heal and repair itself. So, it’s the perfect option if you don’t require facial augmentation or reconstruction but want your skin to glow.
Can Profhilo® be used with Botox™ and dermal fillers?
Profhilo® can indeed be used with treatments, such as dermal fillers, Botox and thread lifting and may be offered as the first step to achieving healthier skin, before such treatments are considered. The results can be seen after a matter of 8 weeks or so and can last anything up to 12 months.
What are the Benefits of Profhilo®?
As a non-surgical treatment, you can resume normal activities after your Profhilo® appointment. It offers several skin benefits for both men and women, including:
- Boost hydration and radiance
- Improve tone and texture
- Increase firmness
- Add volume
- Promote younger-looking skin
- Improve wrinkles like crow’s feet and smile lines
- Combat skin laxity
What does this treatment involve?
The treatment itself lasts about 40-50 minutes and requires 2 separate sessions. When Profhilo is injected, it triggers a response known as bio remodelling. This acts as a scaffold within the skin. Because Profhilo® is a stabilised product, it lasts in the skin for around 28 days. During this time, it promotes the stimulation of 4 types of collagen and elastin through a slow release of hyaluronic acid.
As the injectable gel is stabilised, it means that Profhilo® will last longer than a non-stabilised injectable. It’s this slow release of hyaluronic acid and collagen that works in the deeper layers of the skin to provide several skin benefits. Profhilo® not only boosts the appearance of the skin but has a lifting effect on the tissue.
What Areas of the Body Can You Treat With Profhilo®?
You can use Profhilo® on the neck, face, arms, hands, décolletage, abdomen and knees. You can use it on any skin that shows ageing. The treatment promotes radiance and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. The treatment is suitable for both men and women and offers several skin-boosting benefits.
How Long Does it Take to See the Results of Profhilo®?
The results of Profhilo aren’t immediate. This is because you need 2 separate treatments, usually 1 month apart. The injectable works its magic over time, so you can see the full results after the second session.
In terms of recovery, you can expect to go back to work immediately. Generally, you can see very small bumps on the treatment area after your appointment. But this will go down in 24 hours.
The final results should last for anywhere between 6-12 months. What makes Profhilo different is that it works to reverse signs of ageing at a deeper, cellular level. With minimal downtime and long-lasting results, the treatment is suitable for a wide range of people.
How is Profhilo Different From Other Injectables?
The difference between Profhilo and other injectables is that Profhilo is made of 100% hyaluronic acid. Profhilo is aimed at enhancing the overall appearance and general concerns with ageing.
