Profhilo

Profhilo at SkinSpirit

Profhilo is safe and effective anti-ageing treatment. It is an injectable moisturiser, formulated from Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which works once injected to produce 4 types of collagen and elastin, spreading across the treated area for 30 days. This gradual and continual stimulation delivers impressive results that look beautifully natural. 

Due to its ability to spread, Profhilo is the ideal treatment to tackle otherwise difficult areas such as the neck, decolletage and jowls, which often lose elasticity and volume with age. Not to be confused with dermal fillers or Botox, Profhilo offers gradual stimulation, plumping and hydrating the skin to achieve improvements in tone and texture, enhancing overall skin health and appearance.

Benefits:

  • Smooths texture of the skin
  • Fades away imperfections for a youthful complexion
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles

Treatment Details

Profhilo is formulated using Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a substance which is found naturally in our bodies and is responsible for giving our skin its structure by plumping and hydrating the epidermis. Improvements continue over 30 days as 4 types of collagen and elastin are stimulated within the skin, firming, tightening and plumping the treated area. 

Your Profhilo treatment at SkinSpirit will begin with an initial complimentary consultation carried out Dr. Sagar Patel (can we do this to help google words/searches) to ascertain your treatment goals and assess your skin condition. A treatment plan will then be devised, suggesting the number of treatments required and any recommended additional professional treatments or home care products able to maximise results. 

Your treatment will take place in one of our private treatment rooms, ensuring your comfort and privacy. All injectable treatments at SkinSpirit are carried out by one of our highly qualified and experienced Doctors. Profhilo isn’t a painful treatment, but you may experience some mild discomfort.

At SkinSpirit, we usually recommend 2 treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart and then maintenance every 4 - 6 months.

Results

Results will be seen gradually, improving over time. Skin types can respond differently, often seeing depleted areas plumped in older skin and general tightening and firming in younger skin. 

At SkinSpirit, with any injectable treatment, we highly recommend that complexion-enhancing facial treatments should also be included in your professional skincare regime. 

Anti-ageing injectable solutions deliver incredible results when it comes to smoothing the skin, achieving firmer, tighter and more defined skin, but as our skin ages it requires intense hydration and nourishment to really look its best.

Your aesthetic Doctor will be able to recommend the most effective facial treatments to achieve a gorgeous natural glow that will improve the health and appearance of your skin even more. Even youthful skin can look dull and dehydrated – we’re here to ensure your skin looks more refined, but radiant too!  

 

Post-Treatment Advice

Whilst a Profhilo treatment doesn’t require any post-treatment downtime, there may be some minor bruising or swelling, which is normal with any injectable treatment and usually heals within a few days. You are however welcome to return to your normal activities directly after treatment – or enjoy some relaxation time in our client lounge. 

Your Doctor will tell you how best to care for your skin following each treatment, ensuring you achieve the best possible outcome.

What our customers are saying?

Q. Is Profhilo a Filler?

A. Profhilo is formulated using Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a substance which is found naturally in our bodies and is responsible for giving our skin its structure by plumping and hydrating the epidermis. Profhilo is thermally cross linked, heating the molecules to bond them. Often confused as a dermal filler treatment, Profhilo differs as dermal fillers are chemically linked and not thermally. The thermal linking of the molecules enables the treatment to spread across the skin once injected, enabling otherwise untreatable areas to be improved. Improvements continue over 30 days as 4 types of collagen and elastin are stimulated within the skin, firming, tightening and plumping the treated area.

Your Time

As with most treatments, they are tailored to your skin type and your skin’s specific needs so treatment times may vary. A Profhilo treatment at SkinSpirit can take between FINDING OUT, depending on the size and number of areas to be treated.
