The aesthetics industry is constantly growing. Aesthetic treatments are growing in popularity and they’re here to stay.
With growth comes innovation, and to our patients, it must seem like we’re introducing a new treatment every month (because we kind of have).
At our Lancashire based aesthetic clinic, we’re always researching the latest treatments that have been added to the exciting world of medical aesthetics. We recently introduced the Hydrobooster treatment, which has been a huge hit with our patients. We have a strong feeling that our latest treatment - Profhilo will have you just as excited!
What is Profhilo?
Profhilo (pronounced: pro-figh-low) is Hyaluronic Acid at its best!
Developed with IBSA’s patented NAHYCO® technology, Profhilo® contains one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid and delivers a prolonged efficacy, without the addition of cross-linking chemical agents. Being FDA approved, Profhilo is also a very safe anti ageing treatment.
Still not quite clear what Profhilo is?
Let us break this down in to simple terms and answer the questions you really want to know, such as who’s it for, how long does it take and how is the treatment administered.
Who is Profhilo for?
Perfect for both men and women. As with any anti ageing treatments, we would say it’s best for someone who is showing signs of ageing. Otherwise, you wouldn’t see the benefits quite the same.
How is Profhilo given to patients?
Profhilo is an injectable treatment. A specially developed injection technique reduces pain, downtime and the number of treatment sessions, making it the perfect “lunch-time” procedure.
Injectable acid! Does it hurt?
Whenever the word “acid” is used, we naturally think about a substance that melts anything in its path - like in the films. Of course, this is medical aesthetics. All treatments are designed to enhance your appearance in the safest possible way. As for pain from injecting - pain is very subjective and everyone’s pain threshold varies. However, the specially developed injection technique reduces pain down to an absolute minimum. It would never be bad enough to deter someone from having the treatment.
How long does it take to see results?
Over 275,000 successful Profhilo treatments were performed between February 2015 - December 2017, in all cases results could be seen instantly. The recommended treatment is two treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart. Your final result will last unto 6 months.
What results can I expect?
Profhilo is referred to as the “airbrushing” treatment and for good reason. The treatment will leave your skin looking and feeling flawless. This is achieved by improving the skin texture, elasticity and hydration with an immediate tightening effect.
As you can see from the images above, the treatment can be applied to the face, neck, hands and even the arms. You will also notice from the images, that the results will not leave you looking like you’ve had cosmetic surgery, they will leave you looking younger, fresher and healthy.
Bioremodeling is the name given to the technique. This is an innovative approach to anti-aging, which counteracts skin laxity of the face and in areas traditionally difficult to treat, such as the neck, décolleté, hands and arms.
Is Profhilo safe?
Yes Profhilo is absolutely safe. You can have the added confidence in Profhilo, knowing it is FDA approved too.
