Profhilo® is a revolutionary new technology that delivers an incredible boost for your skin. It is an anti-ageing skin treatment for the top layers of the skin of your face, neck and body. At our clinic in Marlow, a stone’s throw from Maidenhead, Cookham, Amersham, Beaconsfield and Henley-on-Thames, we offer the latest treatments, including Profhilo, so why not get in touch to arrange a consultation today.
Profhilo is made by Ibsa who are an Italian pharmaceutical company founded in 1945 by a group of swiss biologists. They specialise in Hyaluronic acid production controlling the entire product life cycle from the biofermentation production of the raw material to it being ready to use in pre-filled syringes.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally present in the human body. It is found in the highest concentration in fluids in the eyes and joints. It can be made in laboratories very safely. It has a unique capacity to bind and retain water molecules. Profhilo was introduced into the UK in May 2016 and has gained in popularity gradually until now it is written and talked about everywhere.
Profhilo has one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market. When injected into skin, Profhilo stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity and improve and restore firmness of the skin. It not only boosts and hydrates the skin but also remodels ageing and sagging tissue. The most common ares to treat are the face and neck but can be used anywhere on the body to effectively treat skin laxity for patients of all ages.
Only two treatments are required for maximum results. These are spaced four weeks apart. The treatments are quick and although they sting a little, using a topical numbing cream beforehand can reduce the small discomfort. The results are definitely worth it. Treatments are generally repeated at 6, 9 or 12 monthly intervals depending on your age, lifestyle and how your skin responds. One of the great side effects of this treatment is that you need less of other treatments and most of the compliments you will receive afterwards are ‘how well you look, refreshed, have you been on holiday?’ It is the perfect treatment to complement other treatments or to have on its own for a very natural improvement to your skin quality.
Profhilo® comes from Italy, where in the first 10 months 50,000 syringes were sold because it is so effective for improving skin texture. It not only hydrates your skin from the inside out, it increases your collagen and elastin production and actually remodels your skin, making it look far firmer than before. It can be used alongside all the other treatments we offer, and although not a replacement for dermal filler treatment, it is a fantastic addition!
Results are usually seen after two treatment sessions, with a one month interval between them. An increase in firmness, elasticity and an overall improved quality of the skin is seen after the two treatments. Maintenance treatments are required every 6-12 months, depending on the degree of correction required, your age and lifestyle.
Compared to “regular” skin boosters, Profhilo® requires a tiny number of injections, and isn’t accompanied by the bruising that’s normally expected, so it’s comfortable. The area where it is injected may be slightly raised for a day or so, but rapidly subsides.
Before you commence any treatment at Springwell Clinic you will have a free of charge consultation with your practitioner. This gives you the time to discuss all aspects of the treatment programme and its’ costs. A medical history is taken and a plan is created so that you are fully informed and aware of your journey ahead.
