Focus On Profhilo
If this is the first time you have heard the term Profhilo you may have been missing out on an innovative way to rejuvenate your skin effortlessly.
What is it?
Profhilo is a minimally invasive injectable treatment which uses a specially developed BAP injection technique so the needle is place just a millimetre under the skin reducing any pain to an absolute minimum. It is often quoted as the perfect lunch-time treatment as it is quick and has very little downtime.
Why do it?
As we emerge from lockdown 3 and begin to tentatively socialise again, the worry of the pandemic still etched upon our hopeful faces, this is a great opportunity to give your skin a much needed boost. This year it is all about wellbeing and YOU! How you look and how you feel now seems suddenly much more important than the opinion of a celebrity living on the other side of the world. The focus has changed to that of individual health and being the best version of ones self.
Patients are less inclined to show pictures of their idols requesting to look like them and more often than not are opting for a healthy glow and restored vitality both mentally and physically. With this new focus on subtle, health restoring results, Profhilo stands out as the go to treatment.
Tell Me More
Profhilo is made of Hyaluronic Acid, comes in a 2 ml syringe, much like a Dermal Filler but twice the size, but here the similarity ends. It is described as a bio-remodeller as it stimulates the fibroblasts in the epidermis of the skin to increase production of the precious collagen and elastin fibres. These fibres are the main structural protein of our skin and is what gives us our dewy complexions of youth and maintains elasticity. This process is referred to as neo collagenasis.
What does it involve?
The treatment itself is a non-surgical procedure involving 10 small injections over the area, generally this is either the face, neck or chest but areas like the thin skin on the back of the hands or the inner arm can also benefit from Profhilo. It is indicated for crepey, dry, thin and sagging skin which can be restored to health, and plumped up again with a rejuvenation splash of moisture.
Sadly as we get older our capacity to synthesise collagen and hyaluronic acid begins to wain and decreases rapidly after the age of 40. This leaves us with the tell-tale signs of subcutaneous atrophy or thinning skin, dryness, lines and wrinkles. Profhilo acts in a unique way, as it copies the actions of the skin. The synthetic hyaluronic acid disperses into the skin and over time the results are visibly improved. As the production of collagen is increased, the skin is left smoother and more radient.
Anyone interested in receiving this procedure should be mindful that it must be performed by a medically qualified Health Professional as Profhilo requires the exact placement at a precise depth to be effective and optimise results. This requires precision injection skills. To obtain the best results it is recommended that a patient has two treatments, the second treatment 4 weeks after the first. Results take a little time to emerge but continue to improve over several months giving a naturally younger and vibrant appearance. You will be ready to take selfies with confidence again.
