What is it
Profhilo is an injectable treatment with a combination of high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid targeted to intervene the process of aging skin by stimulating elastin and collagen.
Who are suitable candidates
Patients who have concerns of aging or saggy skin with fine lines and poor skin quality.
Profhilo reverses signs of aging by providing long-lasting hydration and remodelling skin through collagen and elastin production. Some of the expected outcomes are:
– Tighter and firmer skin
– Hydrates the skin
– Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
– Reduces the appearance of aging skin
Patients typically achieve maximal results 2 to 3 months after the second Profhilo treatment and will notice improvements in the skin’s overall appearance.
Profhilo body injections contain stabilized hyaluronic acid (HA), which is naturally found in the body. It is therefore a generally safe procedure and FDA-approved.
Similar to other injections, you may experience temporary mild swelling, redness, or bruising over the treatment sites that should resolve 2-3 days after the procedure.
Topical anaesthetic is applied prior to the small pinprick injections to ensure that the treatment is as comfortable as possible.
How many sessions are required?
An initial cycle of 2 treatment sessions a month apart is recommended, followed by maintenance treatment in 6-9months.
How long does the treatment take?
Treatment duration depends on the size of the area and amount of injectables required, however the actual procedure time is typically quick and completed within 30minutes.
