Profhilo® is an exclusive skin remodelling treatment designed for individuals with ageing skin that is lacking volume and elasticity. Profhilo® stimulates the production of collagen and elastin through the slow release of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and in doing so significantly improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as increasing hydration and firmness across the face resulting in an overall rejuvenated appearance.
After injection into the skin, Profhilo starts to work immediately.
Its unique structure allows it to flow freely through the subcutaneous tissue and dermis in the target areas, creating volume evenly over the following 24 to 48 hours.
The product remains in the skin for about 28 days, in which time it continues to stimulate the production collagen and elastin by slowly releasing the HA.
This creates both a ‘dermal scaffold’ that tightens and lifts the skin, while also boosting skin tissue quality through HA’s hydrating and stimulating action.
The improvements to the firmness, elasticity and overall quality of your skin should last up to 6 months.
Bruising at the Injection Point:
It is important to know bruising at the injection point can happen.
It is rare that you will bruise at each and every injection point but it is important to know i can happen.
This doesn't mean anything has gone wrong or it has been administered incorrectly, it just means the end of the needle has nicked a blood vessel below the surface lower than the eye can see, which has caused the blood to come up to the surface and form a small bruise.
-Apply a cold compress to the bruise, but be sure to not press down hard
-Apply Arnica Gel
-Be Patient, the bruise will go
-Massage the area, this will cause the bruise to spread
