What is Profhilo London?

Profhilo london is a new skin bio-remodelling treatment to soften lines and wrinkles whilst encouraging the natural production of collagen and elastin to rejuvenate the appearance of the skin. This revolutionary product has won a number of awards including Product Innovation of the Year and is ideal for people who are looking to try something different to dermal fillers or botox. It is highly effective and a great alternative for those with sensitivity to synthetic cross-linking agents. The results are subtle and look completely natural. It can also be used with other treatments such as lasers or facial peels.

Profhilo is made from natural hyaluronic acid and does not contain any synthetic cross-links, so there is no risk of allergies or reactions. It is broken down by the body naturally through a metabolic process after 28 days. It stimulates the production of four types of collagen and elastin as well as providing deep hydration to the skin. The skin is left looking supple and plump, achieving results which can last up to six months, although this will vary from person to person.

A full Profhilo consultation is carried out to assess suitability for the treatment. This will include discussion of your medical history and checking that you do not have any conditions which may prevent you from undergoing the procedure. Your practitioner will also ask you what expectations you have for the treatment.

Once your consultation is complete and you have consented to proceed, the treatment itself takes as little as 10 minutes. Your practitioner will clean the area and apply numbing cream if necessary, then inject Profhilo into five specific areas on each side of the face using a technique which has been specifically developed for this treatment, called ‘Point Injection’. This method ensures that the Profhilo profhilo london is evenly distributed, minimising any potential discomfort and achieving optimum results.

After the treatment, your practitioner will give you a detailed aftercare sheet to follow. In most cases, it is possible to return to normal activity immediately following your appointment, though some redness or itching in the injection sites can occur for 24 hours. Bruising, if present, can take up to a week to appear and is usually minimal.
