Profhilo is a revolutionary new anti-ageing skin laxity treatment to address facial lines and wrinkles, but also skin laxity, improving tone, texture and hydration. The treatment is aimed at patients who have visible signs of ageing skin.
As we age, our skin produces less collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are the building blocks which make up plumped up healthy skin. Profhilo® uses advanced patented technologies to help remodel the skin. It is made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA).
Profhilo® effectively stimulates the production of natural collagen and elastin to re-energise and renew the skin. It stimulates four different types of collagen and elastin due to the slow release of hyaluronic acid, and it is this stimulation that results in significant improvement of tissue quality. Profhilo®, at present, is the only product capable of stimulating the natural production of all four types of collagen and elastin, making it truly unique.
Profhilo® continues to be a fantastic choice for those wanting to combat ageing, dull or tired looking skin and loss of facial volume.
Compared to dermal fillers, Profhilo® enhances stem cell reproduction. It restores both skin and fat layers to their natural state, and stimulates the body to produce four collagen types. Unlike dermal fillers it does not provide volume. Profhilo® can also be used in a number of areas, where fillers are unsuitable such as body areas.
This characteristic of Profhilo® makes it an ideal treatment for improving elasticity and tightening areas such as the neck, around the mouth and hands without giving an artificially enhanced appearance.
Most clients request Profhilo® treatments in the submalar area (between the cheek and chin) to tighten skin and lift jowls. Profhilo will result in significantly noticeable skin tightening and give you a lifting effect between your cheek and chin in just 12 weeks (you will see a gradual improvement throughout). We advise that you have three treatments four weeks apart.
How is the procedure done?
A treatment takes around 10 minutes involving several small injections in the area to be treated. It is minimally uncomfortable and within 20 minutes of treatment there will be no swelling. Profhilo treatments are available with Dr Tara at all our clinic locations in Bournemouth (Dorset), Alresford (Hampshire) and Westbury (Wiltshire).
