Profhilo is an extraordinary skin remodelling treatment that will give you visible results in just 2 visits. This new treatment can emulate dermal fillers, targeting injection sites at the areas of concern.  It has one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market

Profhilio is an extraordinary skin remodelling treatment that works beneath the skin using a hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment, Profihilo is a unique hyaluronic acid injectable gel, which has a prolonged stimulating activity on the dermal cells. When injected into skin, Profhilo stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity and improve and restore firmness of the skin turning b I the time on ageing and sagging tissue.

Profhilo stimulates 4 different types of collagen and elastin due to the slow release of hyaluronic acid which improves tissue quality. The results will improve skin tone, texture, hydration, radiance and increase elasticity with minimal down time. Another advantage of Profhilo is it can be combined with other treatments that can give you results comparing to a face lift without scarring or complications associated to it.

The most common areas of treatment include the face and neck and can also be used for the neck line, hands, arms, knees and abdomen area where it would effectively treat skin laxity.

Benefits of Profhilo Treatments

  • An Effective Non-Surgical Treatment. Most skin care treatments that have proven to be effective usually involve a surgical process.
  • Fights Skin Laxity
  • Improves skin quality
  • Targets problematic areas
  • Improves your skin’s texture and its tone

How many treatments will I need?

Initially you will need 2 sessions four weeks apart to get the maximum benefit. If the skin laxity is quite severe, you may need a third treatment a month later. To maintain the results, get a single treatment every 3 months.

Pre Treatment

Book a face to face consultation to assess the best treatment for you. If you have recently had any filler or toxin treatment in the same area, you may need to wait before having Profhilo. 

In order to reduce the risk of bruising please avoid alcohol, and if safe for you to do so avoid anti-inflammatories, aspirin, and food supplements that cause blood thinning, unless these have been prescribed by your doctor.

Do not wear make-up on the day of treatment.

Aftercare

The following aftercare advice is essential to help reduce the risk of treatment complications, to improve your comfort/healing and to help achieve the best possible results from treatment.

Please follow the aftercare advice for Profhilo injections.

  • Immediately after Profhilo injections the treatment area may be red, tender or swollen. The redness and tenderness should improve after 48 hours. Swelling is often worse on days 2-3 after injection, improved by day 5 and resolved by 2 weeks.
  • For significant swelling contact your practitioner for advice. Swelling may be reduced by regular cold compress, anti-inflammatory medicines such as Ibuprofen (after 24 hours, if safe for you to take), antihistamines and sleeping with your head propped up on 3 pillows to help drainage of fluid overnight.
  • Bruising may occur following treatment, bruising will resolve naturally but may take up to 2 weeks to settle.
  • Regular application of Arnica cream may be helpful for bruising.
  • Tenderness is normal when the injected area is touched afterwards but active pain at rest is not normal. If you experience pain, you must contact your practitioner as soon as possible.
  • Avoid any makeup for 24 hours after treatment as this will reduce the risk of
  • infection.
  • Drink plenty of water after treatment to keep well hydrated.
  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine for 24 hours after treatment.
  • Avoid medications such as aspirin or Ibuprofen for 24 hours as they are blood thinning agents and may worsen bruising (if these medications have been advised by your GP you must check with your GP before stopping them)
  • Avoid supplements such as multivitamins, fish oils, glucosamine and Vitamin B or Vitamin E, which are blood thinning agents and may exacerbate bruising for 24 hours (if these supplements have been advised by your GP please check with your GP before stopping them)
  • Avoid any excess sun exposure, extremes of hot/cold, saunas, swimming or strenuous exercise until the redness and swelling has settled.
  • A rare complication of Profhilo is vascular occlusion in which a blood vessel is accidentally blocked with filler. Signs and symptoms include throbbing and aching pain which can be severe, paleness, a cold feeling to the tissue and purple streaky mottling tissue changes. If you notice any of these symptoms you must contact your practitioner as soon as possible, they will guide you through how to perform a capillary refill test and then assess you fully and advise further action if required.
  • You must seek medical attention and contact your practitioner if you experience any signs or symptoms of infection after treatment. Infection can present as hot, red shiny skin, there may be pus formation and you may have a fever or feel generally unwell.
  • You must seek emergency medical attention if you experience any severe allergy symptoms after treatment. Symptoms may include rash, facial swelling and breathing difficulties.
  • Contact your practitioner as soon as possible if you notice any other unwanted side effects.
  • Your practitioner will advise when further treatment appointments are required. If you are advised to attend a follow up appointment, please do make every effort to attend them. You should do this even if you believe that the recovery process is going well and you cannot see that there are any visible complications.
