Everybody wants to stay young, and from fad diets to exercise and cosmetics, people do whatever they can to retain their youthful looks.
While dermal fillers are an excellent way to keep the facial skin, in particular, looking and feeling fresh as well as plump, not everyone may be an ideal candidate for it. Profhilo injection treatment, a revolution in anti-ageing therapies, uses the same base compound (hyaluronic acid) as dermal fillers to address skin issues where the skin has become loose, wrinkled and saggy due to age.
During the treatment, your skin consultant will inject the hyaluronic acid solution just below your skin’s surface, where it will disperse quickly and react with the facial skin’s tissues to hydrate and rejuvenate it instantly.
What is Profhilo injection treatment?
The Profhilo treatment was first unveiled in 2019 – an injectable skin remodelling procedure, to be more precise, which contains one of the highest doses of HA or hyaluronic acid on the market. Profhilo injection treatments are specifically formulated for people who have difficulty dealing with loose, saggy, dull-looking and wrinkled up skin.
Rather than just plumping up the skin to fill and even out the wrinkles (as is the case with dermal fillers), Profhilo injection treatment sees the slow and steady release of hyaluronic acid, deeply stimulating the production of elastic and collagen under the skin. This, in turn, improves the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, hydrating the skin and improving skin tone. The end result is dramatically improved skin quality, where the results can easily last up to 6 months.
During the treatment, your skin consultant or dermatologist will inject the solution below your skin’s surface in two sessions, which are usually four weeks apart. The solution will disperse rapidly, improving skin hydration and without the risk of leaving any lumps or nodules. The procedure is minimally invasive and does not require anaesthesia or pain killers.
How does Profhilo injection treatment work?
Since hyaluronic acid is hydrophilic in nature – it draws and retains water from the body – Profhilo injection treatment by design works as a hydrating agent and not a filler. This makes it ideal for anyone who wants to do away with dull, old and tired-looking skin, where the skin is transformed after the treatment, thus, making it appear firm, luminous and refreshingly rejuvenated. It usually takes about 3-5 days following the treatment for the skin to achieve the desired effect.
Over the course of the next few weeks, as the skin’s natural elastin and collagen production is stimulated, it begins to tighten. Profhilo injection treatment is particularly useful for people over 30 because the natural ageing process causes a drop in elastin, collagen and HA levels. As a result, the wrinkles, lacklustre skin and fine lines can be reversed to quite an extent following the treatment, with the peak results showing approximately 45-60 days after the second clinical visit.
