As a stabilised product Profhilo lasts in the skin around 28 days. During this time the stimulation of 4 different types of collagen and elastin takes place by slow release of HA. The stimulation results in significant tissue improvement. Therefore we cannot say that Profhilo is a skin booster as it also has a significant tightening / lifting effect on the tissue. A skin laxity treatment, Profhilo® uses patented technologies engineered for ‘skin remodelling’, a revolutionary concept of ‘curling’ wrinkles rather than ‘filling’ them. It effectively stimulates production of both your natural collagen and elastin to renew your skin from within.
After a pre-treatment consultation your practitioner will apply a numbing cream to the area to make the treatment more comfortable.
The first 2ml of Profhilo™ is then injected using a technique called BAP (BIO AESTHETIC POINTS), the BAP technique is 5 entry points of injection for each side of the face. This technique, created for the lower third of the face due to its predisposition to dermal atrophy caused by the ageing phenomena: reduces the number of injection sites reduces the number of visits.
Immediately after treatment there may be some redness at the injection site and you may experience some itching or tenderness in the treated area. This will generally disappear within 24-hours.
For best results we recommend injecting 4ml of Profhilo, 2ml in the initial treatment and a further 2ml one month after the first treatment. In some cases, where the signs of ageing are more extreme, you may require up to 8ml of product spread over 4 treatments.
Increased firmness, elasticity and an overall improved quality of the skin can be visible for up to six months post-treatment, However, this does depend upon the degree of correction required, your age and lifestyle.
For best results a second treatment of 2ml is recommended one month after the first treatment. Maintenance treatments can then scheduled according to your body’s response to treatment.
