Things move fast in the cosmetic industry and it was only going to be a matter of time before dermal fillers were enhanced sufficiently to improve upon an already highly popular treatment. Currently, when you have dermal filler treatment, you can volumise your skin, minimise wrinkles on the lower face and receive a bit of minor structural adjustment to the jawline, nose, chin and lips.
What Profhilo does, that takes your results one step further, is stimulate collagen production to such a degree that continuing improvements to your face will follow in the weeks after your treatment. You’ll still see the obvious and immediate effects of Profhilo, that are similar to the effects of dermal fillers, but as your appearance continues to improve, so will your confidence levels! With Profhilo you can achieve a more profound and even more natural-looking rejuvenation.
How it works
Profhilo is an injectable. As with fillers, a form of hyaluronic acid will be injected under the skin, where it will soak up water and cause the skin above to look more youthfully plump. It increases pressure on the skin above having expanded through water absorption, and in this way pushes the skin outwards, giving it the appearance of more volume.
At the same time – and here’s the clever part – Profhilo tricks the body into thinking new skin tissue is required in the area. The body sends its equivalent of a paramedic to the affected area. Collagen production is cranked up to an increased level and the new skin tissue that is created will be firmer and more elastic as a result.
Where it treats
Profhilo works in the same facial areas traditionally treated by dermal fillers. It can push out deep creases in the lower face, such as nasolabial and marionette lines. These are the lines that stretch from the nose to the mouth, and the mouth to the chin respectively.
It can reduce the crows feet lines that can be found to the side of the eyes. It can subtly alter the shape of your nose, chin and lips, not to mention provide you with a firmer, younger-looking jawline. Additionally, for a more thorough rejuvenation Profhilo can be used for a full non-invasive face lift. This is an ideal alternative to surgery as it requires minimal downtime and involves no scarring.
