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.

Individual longevity varies; however, results are expected to last for roughly six months.

Profhilo is a treatment used to improve skin quality and treat skin laxity. It can be used practically everywhere to cure skin laxity and quality, with frequent indications including:

  • Thin skin
  • Sagging skin
  • Loss of volume
  • Dull complexion
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve skin texture

Like most skin treatments, not everyone is a good candidate for Profhilo.

The best candidates have realistic expectations and want to improve skin quality rather than just hide the signs of aging with volume-boosting treatments.

Generally, Profhilo treatment session is not advisable for the following:

  • If you have a skin infection in or near the treatment region, or if you are ill in any manner
  • If you’re on any anti-clotting medications, such as aspirin or warfarin.
  • If you are presently taking or have recently finished a Roaccutane (acne treatment) course within the last 18 months.
  • If you’re expecting a child or are breastfeeding.

Your dermatologist will give you specific instructions on preparing for your Profhilo treatment. Generally, here are the preparations you should take note of:

  • All make-up must be removed, and coming in bare-faced is advised.
  • Alcohol, aspirin, ibuprofen, and various nutritional supplements, such as fish oils, Gingko Biloba, and vitamins C and E, can all cause bruising and should be avoided for at least 24 hours before treatment.
  • If you have an active skin infection, such as acne or cold sores, or if you are ill, such as colds, coughs, or sore throats, treatment cannot be given.
  • Contact the clinic to discuss any illness or new medications before coming.
  • Do not schedule therapy without speaking with your clinician about other planned treatments like massage, facials, dental, and surgery.

Aftercare is an essential part of the treatment, and you must continue with your prescribed products to maintain the results.

Swelling, redness, and bruising are typical side effects that should dissipate within a few days.

Here are some of the aftercare tips:

  • Avoid wearing makeup for the first 24 hours after the treatment
  • Do not consume alcohol and any vigorous physical activity for the next 48 hours
  • For 14 days after treatment, avoid sunbathing and extremes of heat or cold.

These aftercare tips will help to ensure that your skin heals quickly and correctly.

Since you already know most of the basics about Profhilo, it’s time to find a clinic that will be able to provide you with the best service.

You should be vigilant in choosing the right clinic for you. Here are some things to look for when choosing a clinic:

  • The staff should be qualified and experienced- make sure that all the staff members have medical training and are licensed to administer dermal fillers.
  • The clinic should be clean and sterile- this is important for your safety and the safety of the staff.
  • The clinic should offer a consultation- this allows you to meet with a doctor or nurse and ask any questions you may have about the procedure.
  • The clinic should have a good reputation- do some research online and read reviews from past patients.

Skiin ticks each box for all these qualifications. Skiin is the leading service provider in Manchester for your skincare needs.
