Birmingham, England, 5th January 2023, ZEXPRWIRE, Profhilo is an injectable moisturiser that has been awarded the Product Innovation of the Year award. It is used to treat aging skin and improve hydration and texture.
The treatment works by stimulating collagen and elastin production. The result is a firmer, smoother complexion. This is especially useful for crepey or loose skin.
The treatment is carried out by injecting very fine needles into specific points on the face and decolletage. These are marked out by a clinician, and then the hyaluronic acid is injected.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is found in the body and is responsible for moisturizing and supporting the skin. However, as we age, levels of this substance decline, causing the skin to become less firm and saggy.
As a result, the treatment can help restore firmness and elasticity, and help the skin to look younger. The results can last for up to six months. During the first month, patients may experience some redness and swelling, but these should subside within a few hours.
If the treatment is successful, it can be repeated every 6 to 12 months. Ideally, the first treatment is carried out at least two months before the second. When this is done, the patient can resume their normal daily activities immediately.
What does Profhilo do
Profhilo is a gel-like substance made from hyaluronic acid. It is used to hydrate the skin and give it a glowing effect. This helps to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, scars, and other signs of ageing.
The gel-like substance is injected into the skin using very fine needles. The hyaluronic acid absorbs water into the deeper layers of the skin. Eventually, this enables the skin to rejuvenate and heal.
The injection of Profhilo is performed by an appropriately qualified practitioner. While the injection can be relatively painless, it does cause a stinging sensation that lasts only a few seconds. However, it is recommended that patients avoid smoking and drinking alcohol for at least 24 hours before the treatment.
After the first treatment, the patient will notice an improvement in the texture of the skin. The gel-like substance is absorbed into the deeper layers of the skin within a few hours. The full effects of the treatment will be seen after two to three months.
Profhilo can be used on the face and other areas, such as the neck, hands, and decolletage. It can be a stand-alone treatment or used in combination with other treatments.
Typically, two sessions of Profhilo are recommended for best results. Depending on the type of skin, a top-up treatment may be required after the second session.
Benefits of Profhilo
With the help of Profhilo, patients can fight back against the signs of ageing and get a brighter complexion. It stimulates collagen production, keeping the skin healthy and hydrated.
The treatment involves injecting a high concentration of hyaluronic acid into the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring polymer that the body uses to moisturise the skin. As you age, your levels of hyaluronic acid decrease.
By injecting hyaluronic acid into the deeper layers of the skin, the product helps to restore lost moisture and promotes healthier skin. This procedure can also treat acne scars and light acne marks.
In addition to promoting a glowing complexion, the treatment can tighten the neck and hands. Patients can expect to have minimal downtime with this treatment.
Profhilo works by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. These two proteins are key to regaining firmer skin. Depending on the individual, you may need two treatment sessions over four weeks.
Before the Profhilo treatment, you should avoid extreme temperatures, sun exposure, saunas, and strenuous physical activity for at least 24 hours. You should also refrain from makeup during the day.
After the first treatment, you should wait at least a week to see the results of the treatment. You will then need to return to the clinic for another treatment. Most patients require only two treatments.
