Introduction to Profhilo®
Profhilo® is a minimally-invasive treatment designed to renew skin from within. It’s a 100% Hyaluronic Acid (HA) based injectable gel that’s able to firm and tighten skin by stimulating four types of collagen and elastin. Profhilo® nourishes and hydrates skin for powerful anti-aging effects. The procedure is a non-surgical alternative for mild to moderate wrinkles and skin laxity.
Who is Suitable?
Nearly anyone can benefit from Profhilo®. If you’ve started to notice visible signs of aging and would like to improve the overall texture and tone of your skin, Profhilo® may be right for you. Treatments are safe and effective throughout the face and body. Men and women can address lax skin on the face, neck, décolletage, upper arms, and hands.
The Procedure & Risks
Profhilo® treatments are done in clinic and take very little time. A topical numbing cream is applied prior to injection to minimize any discomfort. Our practitioners use a revolutionary injection technique that only requires 5-points on each side of the face for total facial rejuvenation. Most patients need two treatments spaced one month apart to improve overall skin quality.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found within the body. Because Profhilo® is biocompatible, the risk for an allergic reaction or infection is rare. As with any injectable, potential complications such as bruising, swelling, and nerve damage are a possibility when injected incorrectly.
Results & Recovery
Profhilo® is a revolutionary procedure that restores optimal skin health. You can expect your skin to appear firmer, tighter, and lifted after treatment. Profhilo® plumps fine lines and wrinkles while hydrating the skin from within to improve overall tone and texture. A younger, healthier-looking glow can be seen up to 6-months post-treatment.
Profhilo® doesn’t require a recovery period. Patients can go back to their typical day with minimal restrictions. You may experience some redness, swelling, or tenderness at the injection site immediately following treatment. The majority of side effects should subside within 24-hours.
When Can I Go Back to Work?
In most cases, you can head back to work immediately. Sun exposure should be kept to a minimum, and SPF 30+ is recommended at least 48-hours post-treatment.
When Can I Wear Makeup?
You can apply makeup the very next day.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
Treatment times vary but typically take less than 30-minutes.
How Long Before I See Results?
Initial results can be seen in as little as 4-weeks after your first treatment. An optimal outcome will gradually occur over the course of 8-weeks.
