Profhilo is one of the cosmetic industry’s most effective and efficient ways of improving skin appearance and quality. Otherwise known as a skin boosting treatment, it can be used in many places on the body not only the face. The treatment is suitable for both men and women and offers skin benefits for clients of all ages and skin types.
So what actually is profhilo?
Profhilo is a gel product that can be injected under the surface of the skin that is known for being one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market.
It is a hybrid complex of high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid.
Not only does profhilo boost and hydrate the skin but it also remodels ageing and sagging tissue in the body.
When profhilo is injected into the skin, the product stimulates skin cell receptors that helps to then counteract skin laxity, it can restore firmness of the skin and helps significantly with skin hydration.
How does the profiler treatment work
Profhilo is done and recommended as a two-step treatment. you will have the treatment done in full, and then it is advised to visit your practitioner 30 days later for a booster treatment in which you will be able to see areas of the face or body that need that extra help and top up. The profhilo product is injected into the skin using the BAP technique. it is 5 injection points, with a low dosage of product injected per site. the reason the BAP technique is used, is to reduce the risk of any undesired build-up of product, and to ensure that the injections are done in anatomically safe areas. The areas in which are measured up for injections are designed so that the product can achieve a strong lift with corrective results but at low risk of complications. it is then recommended that the Profhilo product is paired up with Jaluproor Sunekos products that can be blipped with microinjections in multiple injection sites all over the treated area.
Is Profhilo a dermal filler treatment?
Simply put, the answer is no. Although Profhilo when applied to the five BAP points of the face, very subtle structure can be achieved. However, because the profhilo product is known as a stabilised product, the activity on dermal cells would last far longer and more effectively than that of a non-stabilised gel- commonly used for dermal filler treatments.
dermal fillers are used to manipulate structure and enhance structure in multiple areas of the body. Similar to Botox, which is used to manipulate wrinkles, reduce wrinkles, and adjust muscle memory.
However, profhilo is used ultimately to stimulate collagen and elastin and due to the concentrated levels of hyaluronic acid, the water is bonded into the deeper layers of the skin. Because of the stimulation of the different types of collagens and elastin under the surface of the skin, a slow release of hyaluronic acid is acknowledged and as this happens, the significance in tissue improvement is vast. Not only does this structure improve but we can witness a significant lifting effect and tightening effect on that issue.
One of the great points about profhilo is there is no downtime required after having the treatment done. Once the BAP points have been measured up on the face, the injection time is a matter of minutes. Minimal swelling and bruising can appear on the injection site, and very occasionally for more sensitive skin types, redness can appear, however these after effects usually will last no more than 20 minutes or so. Of course, it is recommended that no makeup or skin products are used on the area due to the fact that the treatment does involve needlework- which technically means that the areas all left has broken skin. No makeup or skin products for 24 hours are advised just to safeguard and minimise any chances of infection around the areas of the broken skin.
Is it expensive treatment to have?
in all honesty, it can be agreed that profhilo is one of the slightly more costly skin care treatments. However, the plus side is that there is very little maintenance, and the two-step treatment is one of which only needs to be topped up once yearly. it is the initial cost of the product itself that makes this a more expensive treatment to invest in due to the high quality and unique concentration of the product.
Having the profhilo injections once yearly actually works out in the long run more cost effective then some monthly skin care treatments or facials such as microneedling for example.
