If you’ve been researching dermal treatments to make your skin glow, chances are you will have encountered Profhilo®, a relatively new tightening and rejuvenation treatment. But what is it, and what does it do?
It was first launched in Italy in 2015 but soon became a global phenomenon with more than 200,000 patients treated across the word. Neither a skin booster nor a filler, but something in-between, Profhilo® is a treatment of perfectly safe and medically approved hyaluronic acid delivered via a small syringe of 3mm into the skin.
It feels a little like gel and flows under the skin almost like honey, stimulating four different types of collagen and elastin, the protein fibres that give your skin structure, strength, and elasticity (the things that you naturally lose with age).
What does Profhilo® do?
The formula boosts collagen and elastin, giving you instantly smoother and more glowing skin, eliminating the appearance of fine lines.
How long does it last?
The stabilized product lasts around 28 days, during which time the slow release of hyaluronic acid stimulates the necessary proteins in the skin in a way filler couldn’t, and attracts water into the deeper layers of the skin. As a result, the skin tissue looks significantly better. It’s not a booster, however, as it also has a tightening and lifting effect.
How many treatments do I need?
Two treatments are recommended to prolong the effect, usually done one month apart, and it has been proven that the impact can last for six months.
Is it just my face or can I get it on other areas of the body?
The most popular use of Profhilo® is in the facial area, but it can also be used to tighten and rejuvenate the neck, arms, hands and even knees. It is a remarkable, versatile treatment that delivers wonderful, instant results as a treatment on its own or in combination with other aesthetics treatments currently on offer at the Hunar Clinic.
Is it really quick?
Yes – a single course of two injectable treatments a month apart will produce instant hydration and we assure you that you will walk out of the Hunar Clinic beaming.
It can make the skin glow and banish fine lines, giving you noticeably smoother, tighter skin. Those clients with deep wrinkles and sagging skin have remarked how much improved they feel, despite their initial skepticism. For cases where more repair is required, the treatment is usually repeated six months later.
Are there any risks or side effects, and what is the downtime?
Since it launched in February 2015 there have been hundreds of thousands of patients treated with no adverse effects reported; in fact, it has won numerous awards.
It is highly biocompatible due to its composition of ultrapure, natural hyaluronic acid, which is stabilized without the addition of chemical cross-linking agents. This reduces the risk of adverse reactions
The downtime is minimal, and when injected using the five-point technique on each side of the face, each insertion is immediately noticeable. However, they start diffusing very quickly and have completely vanished by the next day.
