As one of our most popular treatments, its no wonder you’re desperate to read all about the amazing things Profhilo can do for your skin!
Launched back in 2015, this ultra-pure hyaluronic acid is stabilised without adding synthetic chemical cross-linking agents, which significantly reduces any adverse reactions. It is one of the safest injectable treatments on the aesthetics market due to its unique patented technology and high biocompatibility. Its effects get to work immediately after the procedure, with its unique structure allowing the product to flow freely (over the following 24-48 hours) through the subcutaneous tissue and dermis, among the target areas. It then remains in the skin for around 28 days where it stimulates the production of collagen and elastin by slowly releasing hyaluronic acid. This creates a dermal framework that tightens and lifts the skin as well as improving tissue quality through the hydrating properties of hyaluronic acid. The effects of this injectable treatment just below the surface of the skin, can last up to 6 months with proper maintenance.
Profhilo is the perfect treatment for more natural anti-ageing and skin remodelling effects. For those showing the first signs of ageing it may be the perfect solution on its own, however for those with more noticeable skin laxity and deeper lines, it is better accompanied with other skin rejuvenation treatments. Additionally using the correct skin care products will significantly enhance the longevity of treatment effects.
Carbon Blush recommend:
For treatments targeting the face, a process called the BAP technique is used to inject the product into five specific points – The Bio Aesthetic Points. This helps optimise the hyaluronic acids placement and is specific to Profhilo, due to its ’spreadability’. The treatment is therefore less invasive than the similar ‘Juvederm Volite’ as only 5 points are needed either side of the face. Additionally less down time or side effects are likely, with 2 treatments recommended for optimal results.
Compared with other fillers and injectables, Profhilo is not limited to the face, and can also be used on the neck, hands, arms and décolleté. These areas are specifically known to show signs of ageing prior to others on the body. It also does not form into lumps or nodules that must be massaged to create the desired result.
All in all, Profhilo presents itself as a quick procedure for anti-ageing and hydration. With its rise in popularity year on year it is the secret everyone should be sharing!
