What to know when considering Profhilo

Profhilo is an anti-aging treatment that uses 100% Hyaluronic acid to combat those pesky signs of aging: wrinkles and loss of elasticity. At Cosmetier in Toddington we use Profhilo to tighten skin, hydrate skin and rejuvenate skin. Reports from our patients say that their skin is firmer plumper and feels younger.

How does Profhilo work?

An injection of Hyaluronic acid, a protein chain that is naturally produced within the human body, is injected into the skin. The Hyaluronic acid is able to significantly improve the skins natural production of four different types of collagen. Collagen is the protein made by the body to maintain skins elasticity, and loss of said elasticity is what causes fine lines and wrinkles.

How is Profhilo applied and does it hurt?

Profhilo is an injection that is administered directly to the skin. It is applied different to points in the face, away from major nerves and vessels, to achieve noticeable results around the entirety of the face. Treatment requires two rounds of injections, 4-6 weeks apart.

When undergoing the Profhilo injection, before any needles are used, a topical anaesthetic is used to numb the injection sites. The numbing of these sites controls the pain. When injected, over time the product integrates itself into the skin naturally and seamlessly, thus providing the least painful treatment possible. Most people after having Profhilo injections report to have minimal pain. Possible minor side effects include, mild redness, itching and tenderness, these symptoms fade within a matter of days.

Is Profhilo for more mature individuals?

Profhilo is a great method to prevent the early signs of wrinkles, fine lines and the loss of volume. Around the age of 20 and beyond, approximately 1% of collagen production in the skin is lost every year. This varies depending on genetics and possible external factors: smoking or drinking etc. This causes the skin to become thinner and less elastic.

As many of us know prevention is in fact better than curing. If from a young age you implement this treatment into the general maintenance for your skin it could mean that further down the line there is less need for further procedures: face lifts. This makes Profhilo a good option for the young as well as the more mature.
