Profhilo® anti-aging treatment
Spa-licious is delighted to offer Profhilo®, a break-through anti-aging treatment at the cuttingedge of non-surgical skincare. Consisting of the highest grade of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), it is one of the most proven effective skin remodelling agents available. As well as filling lines and wrinkles, Profhilo® tightens and firms loose facial skin, delivering visible improvements after just two treatments. It is ideal for overall facial rejuvenation and targeting difficult areas which only usually show improvement with surgery, such as tightening loose skin around, and under the chin, and firming crepey and lax neck skin.
Profhilo® works by boosting your natural collagen and elastin production, the cells responsible for giving skin its firm, youthful appearance. The unique injectable HA gel has the capability to stimulate four different kinds of collagen and elastin production, putting its performance above any other filler. The HA solution is injected at five key points on either side of the face, restoring hydration – plumping out the skin – while also stimulating long-term collagen and elastin production.
Profhilo is ideal for combating several signs of aging, including:
● Fine vertical lines around the mouth, also known as ‘smoker’s lines’
● Wrinkles under and around the eye
● Loose skin around the jawline and under the chin
● Thin and/or sagging neck skin
● Cheek wrinkles and hollow cheeks
Profhilo is highly recommended for mature patients looking to improve their skin’s quality and appearance, as well as younger patients seeking an effective preventative measure against first signs of aging.
Before & After 2 treatments of Profhilo
Before & After 2 treatments of Profhilo
Profhilo® delivers results quickly. After a recommended course (two Profhilo® appointments, four weeks apart) skin looks deeply hydrated, facial skin appears firmer, and fine lines diminished. Skin tone also looks noticeably smoother and fuller. In mature patients, even deeper wrinkles and facial folds – such as nasolabial lines, the lines that run from the side of the nose to the mouth – are improved, while overall skin texture appears fresher, firmer and more radiant.
What to expect
You will be invited for a thorough consultation at our skin clinic in Gerrards Cross. This is to discuss your skin concerns, treatment goals, how Profhilo® works and pre and post-treatment care. Once complete and your suitability for Profhilo® is confirmed, treatment can start.
Lying down on the clinic couch, your face will be thoroughly cleansed of any make-up and impurities. To make sure you are comfortable, a numbing cream can be applied beforehand. The treatment is brief, lasting only around 15 minutes, during which our highly trained aesthetician will inject at five key points on either side of the face. Due to the HA concentrate’s free flowing consistency, only minimum injections are needed, making it a quicker and more comfortable procedure than a lot of other injectables.
There is minimum downtime with Profhilo®, so it usually fine to go about your day as normal. It is best to stay make up free, but if you want to re-apply your look, we recommend opting for light mineral make up.
Treatment name FAQs
Q: How many Profhilo® treatments will I need?
You will probably notice a difference after your first treatment. However, to achieve the best results, we recommend two treatments with a four-week gap in between. The biggest difference in skin quality is usually seen three to four weeks after the second treatment as the HA accelerates collagen and elastin production.
Q: How long does Profhilo last?
The effects vary according to your age and skin condition, but you can expect increased firmness, elasticity and better skin tone for up to six months.
Q: Is there any downtime needed afterwards?
Very little, if any downtime is needed after Profhilo. The point of needle entry might be visible immediately after, along with some mild redness, but this soon fades and should disappear by the next day. Very occasionally, patients experience slight bruising. Full after-care guidance will be provided but as a rule it is best to avoid tough physical activities, such as sports and workouts for 24-hours afterwards. It is also advisable to avoid having saunas, excessively steamy baths or sunbathe for the first few days.
Q. Is Profhilo safe to use?
Profhilo is an award-winning treatment used by aestheticians worldwide. It is recognised for being a safe, effective dermal filler that doesn’t cause adverse reactions. This is because Profhilo contains no chemical cross linking agents and comprises purest grade Hyaluronic Acid, a molecule that occurs naturally in the skin. The treatment is administered by our highly qualified aesthetician, Samantha Savory. Samantha recently gained her CIBTAC Aesthetic Level 4 award in Advanced Skin Science and has over 20 years’ clinical experience, ensuring your treatment is safe and achieves your desired look perfectly.
Q. How does Profhilo differ to other dermal fillers?
Unlike regular dermal fillers which plump up and add volume to specific facial areas, such as the cheeks and lips, the Hyaluronic Acid in Profhilo has an overall deeply hydrating effect on the skin. Its consistency also means it naturally disperses across the facial planes, so your skin looks naturally hydrated and healthy overall.
Profhilo can be used in conjunction with other dermal fillers and muscle relaxing treatments but it is advisable to avoid having these one week before, or two weeks after your Profhilo appointment.
Q. Is Profhilo suitable for everyone?
Profhilo is suitable for all ages, from women and men in their twenties and thirties looking to stave off first signs off aging, to patients in their 60s upwards looking for a potent but natural anti-aging treatment.
As with any injectable treatments, we don’t recommend Profilho if you are pregnant. It is best to wait until you have finished breastfeeding before undergoing Profhilo or any other injectable aesthetic treatment. If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
