What is a Profhilo® treatment? Discover this innovative skin care procedure

Skin health is often overlooked in our daily routines, yet it is essential for reflecting our overall well-being and confidence.The quest for youthful and radiant skin has led to significant strides in skin care, combining the best of natural treatments and scientific breakthroughs. This progress has introduced groundbreaking approaches to skin rejuvenation, focusing on enhancing the skin’s inherent beauty without resorting to invasive procedures.

As we delve into the latest advancements, it’s crucial to lay a foundation for understanding. Before we explore specific treatments like Profhilo®, let’s first examine the concept of collagen stimulators and their role in the approach to maintaining and restoring skin health.

What are collagen stimulators?

Collagen stimulators are innovative treatments designed to revitalise the skin by enhancing its natural ability to produce collagen, an essential protein for the skin’s firmness and elasticity. As we age, the production of collagen in our skin naturally diminishes, which can lead to visible signs of ageing, including wrinkles and a loss of skin firmness.  By stimulating the skin to increase its collagen production, collagen stimulators aim to mitigate these effects, leading to a smoother, more youthful appearance. 

But let’s now  turn our attention to Profhilo®. Besides offering deep hydration, Profhilo® also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. This dual-action approach not only enhances skin texture and elasticity but also contributes to a more radiant and youthful appearance.

What is a Profhilo® injection?

This injectable treatment distinguishes itself by using a unique form of hyaluronic acid (HA) to rejuvenate the skin. Unlike traditional HA-based products, Profhilo® does not rely on chemical cross-linking to stabilise its formula. Instead, it uses a patented technology to create hybrid cooperative complexes between high molecular weight HA and low molecular weight HA. This innovative approach enhances the stability of HA against enzymatic and mechanical degradation, allowing for a more sustained and effective treatment.

The process, known as bio remodelling, targets the skin’s upper layers to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. This not only improves skin hydration but also contributes to increased firmness and elasticity, leading to a subtly refreshed and more youthful appearance.

Profhilo® is administered through a series of injections, designed to work with the body’s natural processes to improve skin quality gently and gradually. The treatment typically involves minimal downtime, with some patients experiencing temporary redness or bruising at the injection sites. However, these minor side effects quickly subside, allowing individuals to resume their daily activities promptly.

Profhilo® offers a non-invasive option for those seeking to revitalise their appearance without the need for invasive procedures. Its unique formulation and method of action place it at the forefront of skin rejuvenation treatments, catering to those looking for effective, long-lasting results with a focus on natural beauty and skin health.

What are the benefits of Profhilo®?

Profhilo® is a standout in the world of aesthetic treatments, offering a comprehensive approach to skin rejuvenation that tackles various ageing-related issues. Here are the essential benefits that make Profhilo® a remarkable choice for those looking to improve their skin’s health and appearance:

Non-surgical solution: Profhilo® offers a significant advantage for individuals seeking anti-aging treatments without the need for surgery. This non-invasive procedure enhances  skin quality and appearance with minimal downtime and without the risks associated with surgical interventions.

Combats skin laxity: Profhilo® is especially effective in addressing skin laxity, providing a targeted approach to improve skin firmness. By remodelling collagen and elastin fibres within the dermal matrix, it offers an immediate tightening effect, rejuvenating thin and sagging skin to achieve a firm, luminous surface.

Enhances skin quality: Daily concerns such as wrinkles, crepiness, and loose skin find an effective solution in Profhilo®. The treatment not only smooths out wrinkles but also improves overall skin quality by lifting and tightening, leading to a fresher, more youthful look.

Precise targeting of problematic areas: Profhilo® excels at addressing specific problem areas on the face and body, such as under-eye wrinkles, smoker’s lines, and fine lines around the mouth. It also improves the appearance of the neck, hands, and other areas, ensuring a thorough rejuvenation.

Improves texture and tone: Beyond tightening and lifting, Profhilo® enhances the skin’s texture and tone. It effectively reduces marks, scars, and other blemishes, while also softening the skin and promoting a more even skin tone by diminishing the appearance of discoloration and sun damage.

Restores radiance and hydration: Profhilo® is renowned for its ability to deeply rehydrate the skin, restoring radiance and vitality. The hyaluronic acid-based treatment not only increases skin firmness and elasticity but also promotes a healthier, softer appearance, making the skin look and feel rejuvenated.

Versatile application: While commonly used for the face, Profhilo®’s benefits extend to the neck, décolleté, arms, knees, and hands, offering a versatile solution for comprehensive skin enhancement.

A therapy with natural and gentle effects

If you are wondering: “What does Profhilo® do to your face?”, I have good news for you. This innovative treatment works in harmony with the body’s own biological processes, gradually improving skin quality and texture without overwhelming the skin’s natural balance. The key to Profhilo®’s gentle yet effective results lies in its unique formulation of hyaluronic acid, which is introduced into the skin in a way that mimics the natural HA found in our bodies. This similarity ensures that the treatment is not only well tolerated but also highly effective in promoting skin health.

The effects of Profhilo® are seen in the revitalization of the skin’s appearance, with improvements in hydration, elasticity, and firmness emerging naturally over time. The treatment encourages the skin to regenerate itself, leading to a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, enhanced skin tone, and a more youthful overall appearance.

One of the most appreciated aspects of Profhilo® treatment is its ability to deliver these significant improvements without altering facial expressions or the natural contours of the face. Moreover, Profhilo®’s approach to skin rejuvenation respects the skin’s integrity, promoting a gradual enhancement that aligns with the body’s own pace of healing and regeneration. This aspect is particularly appealing to those seeking a non-aggressive treatment option that complements their skin’s natural ageing process with grace and efficacy.

How to take care of yourself after a Profhilo® session? 

After undergoing a Profhilo® session, following the right aftercare routine is essential to ensure your skin heals properly and you can enjoy the full benefits of the treatment. Here’s a comprehensive guide to help you through the post-treatment phase:

Immediate aftercare

  • Expect some redness and bruising: It’s common to experience some redness and minor bruising at the injection sites. These symptoms are typical and usually subside within a few days.
  • Keep your face clean: Avoid applying makeup or any skincare products for at least 24 hours after your treatment to minimise the risk of infection and clogging the injection sites.
  • Use a cool compress: If needed, apply a cool compress (not ice directly) to the treated area for 10 minutes every half an hour on the day of the treatment to help reduce swelling and discomfort.
  • Avoid heat-inducing activities: For the first 24 hours post-treatment, steer clear of activities that may increase your body temperature, such as strenuous exercise, hot showers, spas, and saunas, to reduce the likelihood of bruising.
  • Postpone other facial treatments: Wait at least two weeks before undergoing any facials, waxing, chemical peels, skin needling, microdermabrasion, IPL, or laser treatments in the treated area.

Additional precautions

  • Refrain from alcohol: Avoid alcohol for 24 hours before and after your treatment to prevent thinning your blood, which can prolong the healing process.
  • Stay away from extreme temperatures: For at least 48 hours post-treatment, avoid exposure to very hot or cold environments, including direct sunlight, freezing conditions, tanning beds, saunas, or hot tubs.

Monitoring and follow-up

  • Be vigilant of severe symptoms: If you experience severe pain, vision changes, or skin discolouration, contact your practitioner immediately.
  • Plan for follow-up treatments: For best results, Profhilo® typically requires two treatments spaced four weeks apart, with the possibility of a third if necessary. The full effects become visible around eight weeks after the initial treatment.
