Frequently Asked Questions
Profhilo® is a type of injectable rejuvenation treatment, and unlike dermal fillers it is not designed to add volume to the skin, or restrict movement in the facial muscles. Instead, this anti-ageing hydration treatment contains high levels of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring compound which helps improve tone, texture and elasticity.
As we age, the presence of hyaluronic acid in the skin naturally starts to drop, which causes the skin to lose its natural firmness and elasticity. Most people begin to see the effects of hyaluronic acid depletion as they reach their 30s – and Profhilo® is the perfect treatment for anyone looking to counteract this.
Profhilo® is usually administered into the skin in five key areas (when administered to the face): the tops of cheeks, side of the face, lines around the mouth, nasolabial folds and laughter lines. It can also be used to improve the appearance of the skin around the neck, chest and décolletage.
In order to achieve the best results it is recommended to have two Profhilo® treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart.
The full course including consultation and two treatments costs £550
You can also choose to opt for a single session treatment at a cost of £300
During the treatment a local anaesthetic to minimise discomfort. There may be a slight stinging feeling as the Profhilo is injected, but this only lasts a few seconds.
After your treatment a small amount of swelling or bruising at the injection points is possible. You may also experience some tenderness for 24-72 hours.
Normal side effects include small amounts of swelling, bruising, redness and soreness. Most of these will subside after a couple of days and be gone within ten. If you are still experiencing problems after ten days you should contact us for advice.
Hyaluronic acid based treatments are not permanent. Eventually the ingredients will be absorbed by the body. This is a gradual process, so they won’t suddenly disappear overnight.
After your initial treatments, a Profhilo treatment every six months should be sufficient to maintain the benefits.
