Profhilo is a unique skin bio-remodeling treatment that works to improve skin tone, texture, and elasticity. Unlike traditional fillers, Profhilo is not designed to add volume to the skin. Instead, it hydrates and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, two essential proteins responsible for maintaining skin's youthful appearance.
Profhilo is composed of high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid. When injected into the skin, it releases the hyaluronic acid slowly, ensuring prolonged hydration and stimulating the skin's natural repair processes.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of our skin that can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. When introduced into the skin, Profhilo's hyaluronic acid not only provides immediate hydration but also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. This dual action helps to improve skin texture, elasticity, and overall appearance.
Over time, this results in tighter, smoother, and more radiant skin.
Hydration Boost: Profhilo deeply hydrates the skin, addressing dryness and giving the skin a plump and youthful appearance.
Natural Results: As Profhilo stimulates the body's natural collagen and elastin production, the results are subtle and natural-looking.
Versatility: While popularly used for facial treatments, Profhilo can be applied to various parts of the body, including the neck, hands, and décolletage.
Minimal Downtime: The treatment is quick, and most patients can resume their regular activities immediately after.
Profhilo Body can be used to treat various areas, including:
The neck is an area that often reveals early signs of aging, with skin becoming crepey, loose, and showing horizontal lines. Profhilo, with its unique blend of two types of hyaluronic acid (HA) in high concentrations, offers a transformative solution for neck rejuvenation.
This dual-action HA not only deeply hydrates the skin but also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. The outcome is a tighter, smoother, and more youthful neck appearance, effectively addressing common concerns like sagging skin and fine lines.
Profhilo body treatments are particularly beneficial for individuals who have experienced significant weight loss or post-pregnancy changes in the abdominal area. The hyaluronic acid formulation of Profhilo provides deep hydration and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. This dual action aids in tightening loose tummy skin, restoring a firmer and more youthful appearance to the abdomen.
The decolletage, often exposed to sun and prone to early signs of aging, can greatly benefit from Profhilo treatments. Profhilo's unique formulation not only hydrates the skin deeply but also smoothens out fine lines and improves skin elasticity. This treatment rejuvenates the decolletage area, giving it a smoother and more youthful look.
The treatment typically begins with the doctor planning out the injection points. There may be 10 to 20 injection points in total depending on the size of area to be treated.
Small injections are administered, which some patients describe as feeling similar to ant bites. Ice pack application to the area will reduce both discomfort and the risk of bruising.
After the injections, small bumps will appear at the injection sites. These are temporary and usually take between 3 to 5 days to disappear. Patients are encouraged to massage these bumps using our intensive recovery cream to speed up the recovery process.
There's also a possibility of bruising post-injection, but this varies from patient to patient.
Typically, it's recommended to have 2 to 3 sessions initially, spaced one month apart. After the initial treatments, maintenance sessions can be done every 6 months or as advised by your doctor.
The results of Profhilo treatments can between 6 to 12 months. However, the exact duration can vary based on individual factors like skin type, age, and lifestyle.
As such, for best results, patients are recommended to do maintenance sessions once every 6 months.
Profhilo is a unique treatment that uses hyaluronic acid to rejuvenate the skin, providing hydration and stimulating collagen production. When it comes to the face and body treatments, the primary difference lies in the areas of application.
Profhilo face treatment targets facial areas, addressing skin laxity and improving the skin's overall texture and tone. On the other hand, Profhilo body treatment is designed for areas like the neck, upper chest, abdomen, arms, hands and knees, helping to tighten and rejuvenate the skin in these regions.
As for the contents of the Profhilo being injected, both treatments use the same hyaluronic acid-based formula, ensuring consistent results regardless of the treatment area.
Profhilo body injections are a popular treatment for skin rejuvenation and hydration. Like any medical procedure, there are potential side effects to be aware of, though they are generally mild and temporary.
Here are some potential risks associated with Profhilo body injections:
Mild Swelling or Redness: After the treatment, some people may notice a bit of swelling or redness at the injection site. This is a common reaction and usually subsides within a few days.
Tenderness at the Injection Site: It's possible to feel some tenderness or discomfort where the product was injected. This sensation typically fades quickly.
Small Bumps or Lumps: It is normal to see small bumps or lumps at the injection site. These usually resolve on their own within a week. Patients are encourage to massage these bumps to improve results and shorten recovery time.
Bruising: As with any injection, there's a small chance of bruising. Icepacks will be applied to the injection site prior to injection to reduce the chance of bruising. Bruises can be improved using the intensive recovery cream post treatment.
Rare Allergic Reactions: While uncommon, allergic reactions can occur. It's essential to discuss any known allergies with your doctor before the treatment.
It's always a good idea to consult with a qualified doctor to discuss any concerns and ensure that the profhilo body treatment is ideal for you.
