Profhilo – Age-Proof Your Skin And Age Gracefully
Age is never kind on the skin. Wrinkles start to appear more frequently. The skin on your face begins to sag. Time is forcing our youth out of our faces and bodies.
A big reason for our skin’s worsening is due to depleting collagen levels in our body. Why is collagen so important?
Collagen is a protein commonly found throughout your body. It is responsible for hair, bones, muscles, and, more importantly, skin repair.
Collagen production starts to slow down as we age. To be exact, the dermis layer produces 1% less collagen each year after the age of 20. It is a natural ageing process. As there is less collagen to provide structure, the skin is no longer firm. It grows loose and saggy.
So How Can We Fix it?
While collagen supplements can work to a limited extent, the most common aesthetic treatment involves injections.
Doctors can help by injecting helpful proteins or solutions into the face.
The most well-known of these treatments is BOTOX®. A BOTOX® injection into the face helps your wrinkles look less noticeable. Another type of injection is a Dermal Filler. It puffs up certain areas of the face so that they look full and healthy.
But the problem with these two injections is that they may almost seem like plastic surgery. There is a risk that your face looks very stiff or too puffy.
With Profhilo, you can stop worrying about puffy or wooden-looking faces.
What Is Profhilo?
Profhilo is an anti-aging injection that makes your skin firm and hydrated by increasing the collagen production around your skin. It also increases elastin production, which is very important to prevent saggy skin.
“Profhilo bio-stimulates four types of collagen, elastin and proliferate adipocytes (fat) stem cells to address anti-ageing issues naturally and effectively.
The increased collagen and elastin production, in particular, gives your skin (and face) a time-reversing makeover.
The structure of the skin begins to improve due to the collagen. Both collagen and elastin combine to make all three layers of skin very healthy.
Profhilo is a solution made up of primarily hyaluronic acid, an acid naturally produced by our bodies. This acid is responsible for collagen production and skin hydration. The decreases of hyaluronic acid with age are among the main reasons for our bodies’ collagen reduction.
The solution increases what you already have in the body. It is all-natural, and there are no chemicals.
Many other cosmetic injections have hyaluronic acid, but Profhilo has the highest concentrations. That means it is the best option to boost your collagen and hydration levels.
Most cosmetic treatments focus on making an old face look young again. Profhilo can reverse aging and make your face truly young again.
What is the Difference? Profhilo vs BOTOX® vs Dermal Fillers
BOTOX® only targets wrinkles. It prevents the movement of muscles in the injected area, which, in turn, reduces and softens wrinkles caused by facial expressions.
Dermal Fillers fill in the volume of different facial areas. They focus on replacing lost volume in areas with loose skin.
BOTOX® and Dermal Fillers injections change the appearance of the face. They are artificial and may not help solve the root of the issue.
Profhilo focuses on helping your skin recover naturally, rejuvenating it and healing it from within. The key lies in its secret ingredients.
The Secret Ingredient of Profhilo.
The injection solution contains two types of hyaluronic acid. One type targets skin moisture. While the other targets elastin and collagen formations.
They hydrate the skin and reduces sagginess. This hydration process allows your skin to repair itself, making your skin younger from within.
Profhilo also restores old tissue in all three layers of your skin. The water-based injection can spread evenly and quickly underneath the skin, forming a hydrating layer below the skin.
Which Areas Can Be Treated With Profhilo?
● Hands, Arms
What Is The Procedure Like?
First, a doctor will apply numbing cream to your face. After that, the doctor will mark 10 injection points on your face, 5 on each side.
Doctors use the bio aesthetic point (BAP) technique when injecting into the skin for this procedure. The good thing about this technique is that it only has 5 injection points for each side of the face.
That is very little compared to other cosmetic treatments with injections.
Profhilo is injected directly into your face with very fine needles. Once it enters the skin, it will spread quickly and hydrate all the cells.
The process takes less than an hour, and you can resume your daily routine shortly after.
Do The Injections Hurt?
The numbing cream applied before the injection minimizes discomfort and makes the process virtually painless. There are only 10 injection points, and the procedure is speedy.
Any discomfort you might feel during the treatment will be minor.
What Is Recovery Like?
There is zero downtime after the procedure. Small bumps may appear immediately at the injection sites, but they will disappear after 1-2 days.
Because of the BAP technique, bruising is extremely rare. The injection will not hit any major arteries or blood vessels in your face.
Since it is minimally invasive, you will likely feel fine after your treatment.
We advise our patients to avoid exposing the injected areas to very sweaty or oily conditions for at least 24 hours after the treatment.
You should also not touch the injected areas or engage in any vigorous activity for 1 week after the injection. These may include:
● applying thick or large amounts of make-up
● prolonged exposure to the sun
● strenuous exercise
Are There Any Side Effects?
Profhilo does not cause any problems because its main ingredient, hyaluronic acid, is found naturally in our bodies.
There are no synthetic chemicals involved that might result in any severe complications.
Side effects on the treated areas usually resolve within 2-3 days. They include:
● mild pain
When Can I Expect Results?
Typically, it takes about 4 – 6 weeks for you to see the full results. Time is required for the collagen and elastin production to be visible.
Your skin will be smoother, firmer, and more hydrated. You may even notice that it feels softer and younger.
The second treatment (after a month) will produce enhanced results.
These results will last up to 6 months, depending on your skin type and age.
We recommend going for maintenance treatments every 6 – 9 months, depending on your body and lifestyle.
Who Should Not Inject Profhilo?
Anyone who is/has:
● allergic to hyaluronan
● had an anaphylaxis reaction to bee-stings
● pregnant or breast-feeding
● with permanent fillers or facial implants
● not feeling well with a cold, sinusitis, or facial infection
● prior keloid scarring
Caution is also strongly advised for those with autoimmune disorders.
How Does Pricing Work?
A consult with our experienced doctors will help us to come up with a treatment plan for you. During this session, we will determine the areas of treatment.
Each Profhilo treatment, consisting of the 10 injections, costs $1,000. To achieve the best results, you will be required to have 2 treatments, each a month apart.
Can I Combine Profhilo With Other Cosmetic Treatments?
Yes, it is safe to combine with other cosmetic treatments. However, we advise scheduling these appointments at least 4 weeks apart. You should consult our doctors if you are unsure.
