Profhilo® Face & Body
Profhilo® Face & Body acts as a huge moisture boost to hydrate dull, lacklustre and dehydrated skin
What is Profhilo?
Profhilo is a unique stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) for treating skin laxity. It contains a very high concentration of HA and contains a blend of both high and low molecular weight HA. Stability is achieved using a new heat process and avoids the need for chemical additives. Studies have demonstrated a stimulation in the production of four different forms of collagen molecules within the skin.
Profhilo Face has the consistency of liquid honey and is administered by five injection sites on each side of the face. The injections have only a very minor discomfort and the HA then spreads out evenly just under the skin surface.
Profhilo Body is injected at certain points where it diffuses into the surrounding skin to maximise the hydrating results. The Hyaluronic acid content for the body treatment is much higher than for the face and suitable for injecting over larger areas. It is ideal for areas of skin laxity and sagging and helps promote smooth, toned skin on most areas of the body.
This layer of HA results in improved skin quality and skin hydration both in the dermis and epidermis. The injected HA has also been shown to increase production of your own natural hyaluronic and elastin helping to maintain a more youthful look.
Who is suitable for treatment with Profhilo?
Profhilo is suitable as both a corrective and preventative solution to ageing. After the age of thirty the skin structures, collagen levels and hydration in the skin start to decrease so this is a good time to consider age prevention treatments such as Profhilo that will stimulate these structures to renew.
Where can Profhilo be used?
Profhilo is a rejuvenating treatment to smooth fine lines and wrinkles on the face and body, improving crepiness and skin texture. It is most effective in the face, neck, arms, bacs of hands, tummy and chest.
What does Profhilo body involve?
Following your Profhilo Body treatment a soothing and moisturising body patch is applied to the treated area. This contains 4 different ingredients to calm and hydrate the skin immediately after treatment. Arnica helps to soothe provide relief. Escin helps to prevent swelling. A patented antioxidant Salvia Haenkei helps to protect the skin. You will go home with the body patch and we advise you leave it on for 2-3 hours.
We give you a FIGURA Body Cream to take home to be applied twice daily. This is a multi-active remodelling and toning serum to apply to the treated area between your two sessions. It has a silky texture and absorbs fast giving tone, elasticity, and deep hydration. It contains two main ingredients. A complex of hyaluronic acids to protect the skin, restoring and preserving as well as hydrating it. Matrixyl 3000 is a combination of two peptides that promote tissue remodelling and help the better performance of the skin.
When will I see results with Profhilo?
With both Profhilo Face and Body treatment optimum results will be visible four weeks after the second part of your treatment. Clients can expect to see an intense hydration with glowing skin and a reduction in fine lines, wrinkles and skin laxity.
How many Profhilo treatments do I need?
To achieve the best long-lasting results for both Profhilo face and body, you will need two treatments four weeks apart. The Profhilo treatment can be repeated after six months in cases where more repair is desired.
Where is Profhilo available?
Only a few days after the treatment I noticed my skin looked amazing - a definite reduction of fine lines and fuller looking skin as well as looking & feeling more hydrated! I really wish I had done before and after pictures as I am so impressed.
I was self conscious about the sagging skin on my upper arms, but following my treatment at Woodford Medical with Profhilo body, I now feel confident to wear a sleeveless dress to my sons wedding. Thank you Woodford.
