Most people have heard of facial/dermal/lip fillers, and know roughly what they are supposed to do. But not everyone is aware of Profhilo– a new type of anti-wrinkle injectable.
Profhilo is most accurately described as a skin remodelling treatment. Like regular fillers, it contains hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in our bodies but decreases as we age. However unlike regular fillers, Profhilo doesn’t just add volume to the skin. Instead, it works by tightening wrinkles, rather than just temporarily filling them, so it’s an excellent solution to loose, sagging skin, as well as lines and wrinkles.
How does Prohfilo work?
Profhilo works by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin from deep within. Collagen and elastin are the skin’s “youth proteins”, which keep connective tissue firm and help it hold its shape, but levels decrease as we age. Less collagen = less elasticity = more lines and wrinkles, so it’s easy to see how Profhilo is such a breakthrough anti-ageing treatment.
Profhilo is suitable for use in a number of different areas, including the face, neck, jaw, jowls, décolletage and hands. In addition to smoothing lines, Profhilo also increases firmness, improves elasticity and enhances skin texture. Profhilo doesn’t just sit under the skin until it degrades like regular filler does; it interacts with the skin’s lower tissue layers, causing them to regenerate. After a period of time, it is metabolised naturally, so for optimum results, we recommend two treatments, around one month apart.
Due to the way it works, Profhilo is a great pre-emptive option for younger patients, who are looking for a proactive treatment that will help prevent lines and wrinkles from forming in the first place. It can even be used alongside Botox and regular facial fillers, if desired, for more pronounced results.
