Profhilo: The Complete Guide

Are you looking for a non-invasive way to achieve a refreshed and youthful appearance?  Not quite ready or sure about fillers but want a more subtle enhancement? Look no further than Profhilo, the revolutionary injectable treatment that has taken the world of aesthetics by storm. Designed to target multiple signs of ageing on various areas of your face and body, Profhilo offers natural-looking results.

What Does Profhilo Do for Your Face?

Profhilo, administered by our experienced injector Anna, is a unique injectable treatment that works to hydrate and rejuvenate the skin from within. Its key ingredient, hyaluronic acid ( a combination of high and low weigh hyaluronic acid), stimulates collagen and elastin production, improving skin elasticity, firmness, and overall texture. As a result, you can expect smoother, plumper, and more radiant skin.

How Long Do Profhilo Injections Last?

One of the many benefits of Profhilo, are its long-lasting effects. While individual results always vary, most patients enjoy noticeable improvements in skin texture and tone for up to six to twelve months after treatment. To maintain optimal results, follow-up sessions are typically recommended after three- six months, depending on your skin quality.

Is Botox Better Than Profhilo?

Both Botox and Profhilo are popular aesthetic treatments, but they target different concerns. Botox, known for its wrinkle-smoothing effects, is primarily used to address dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle movement. On the other hand, Profhilo, focuses on overall skin rejuvenation and hydration. The choice between the two depends on your specific aesthetic goals and concerns. Many people have the treatments together and at Exthetics we offer a Profhilo and Botox package to reduce the costs for you.

How Much Does Profhilo Cost?

The cost of Profhilo treatment can vary depending on factors such as the number of sessions required and the area(s) being treated. During your consultation with Anna, she will assess your needs and provide you with a personalised treatment plan, including a transparent breakdown of costs.  As a guide though, you need 2 initial treatments and sometimes three.  You can then have treatment every 3-6 months depending on your desired outcome and skin quality.

Is There a Downside to Profhilo? What Are the Disadvantages?

While Profhilo is generally well-tolerated by most patients, like any cosmetic procedure, it may have some potential side effects. These can include temporary redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites. However, these effects are usually mild and subside within a few days.  Profhilo doesn’t add any volume to your face unlike dermal fillers that replace lost volume.

Why Do You Need Two Sessions of Profhilo?

To achieve optimal results, Profhilo treatment typically consists of two initial sessions spaced approximately four weeks apart. This allows for gradual and natural-looking improvement in skin quality and hydration. After the initial treatment, maintenance sessions may be recommended every six to twelve months.

Does Profhilo Make You Look Younger?

Yes! Profhilo works wonders in restoring youthfulness to the skin by replenishing lost hydration and stimulating collagen and elastin production. The result is smoother, firmer, and more radiant skin that can take years off your appearance.  We always encourage the use of good skincare including retinols and SPF to enhance your results. 

How Quickly Will I See Results from Profhilo?

Many patients notice an improvement in skin texture and hydration within a few weeks of their first Profhilo session. However, the full effects of treatment typically become apparent after the second session, as collagen and elastin production continues to increase over time.

What areas can be treated with Profhilo?

Is Profhilo suitable for all skin types?

How does Profhilo compare to traditional dermal fillers?

While both Profhilo and traditional dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, they work in different ways. Profhilo spreads evenly beneath the skin (it is injected into the dermis) to provide overall hydration and skin rejuvenation, while dermal fillers are used to add volume to specific areas of the face.
