Profhilo is an injectable skin-remodeling treatment with one of the highest concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is injected directly into the skin
Profhilo’s delayed release of HA encourages collagen and elastin production, which improves skin tone, moisture, and the appearance of fine lines. The effects are short and long term. As well as plumping and improving the appearance of wrinkles, the skin quality also improves for up to 6 months.
Profhilo is a hydrator rather than a filler, which means it draws and holds water. It is ideal for those with weary, dull-looking skin since it restores firmness and radiance.
Collagen and elastin production is enhanced during the next few weeks, resulting in tighter skin. It is beneficial since collagen, elastin, and Hyaluronic Acid levels in the skin begin to decline fast beyond the age of 30, resulting in symptoms of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and dull skin. Some of these alterations are reversed by Profhilo. Profhilo’s total effect is usually evident two months following the second treatment.
It is often said that dermal fillers are a temporary solution to the signs of aging. While this is true, they can offer significant improvements in appearance for those who opt for them.
One of the benefits of Profhilo over dermal fillers is that it does not augment, but instead encourages the production of collagen and elastin, which leads to a more natural-looking result. This is perfect for those who don’t want to go down the filler route.
While both Profhilo and standard dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, the main distinction between the two treatments is that Profhilo does not add volume or alter the facial structure. Dermal fillers provide a lifting and volumizing effect and are utilized to augment a specific area.
Treatment with hyaluronic acid is safe, but it does come with risks. Your dermatologist will go through all the risks and benefits during your consultation and before treatment.
This procedure does not require or allow for the use of an anesthetic. The injections sting for a short time, but most patients only experience minor discomfort. For the first 24-72 hours after the therapy, you may suffer some tenderness, and it will eventually subside.
