A Guide to Profhilo and What to Expect

Profhilo is an injectable treatment offered at Kingswood Aesthetics. It is primarily used for skin rejuvenation and is often referred to as a “bio-remodeling” treatment.

Unlike dermal fillers, which are used to add volume or reshape areas of the face, Profhilo is designed to improve overall skin quality and hydration. It consists of a hyaluronic acid (HA) formulation that is injected into the skin using a specific injection technique.

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in our skin, responsible for maintaining moisture and elasticity. However, as we age, the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen decreases, leading to dryness, loss of firmness, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Profhilo helps counteract these effects by providing deep hydration and stimulating collagen and elastin production.

Treatment at KWA involves a series of injections strategically placed in specific points of the face or other areas of concern, such as the neck or hands. The unique characteristic of Profhilo is its high concentration of HA, which allows it to spread evenly throughout the skin, providing hydration and stimulating the natural production of collagen and elastin. This results in improved skin texture, firmness, and a more youthful appearance.

Profhilo has minimal downtime and is relatively low risk of side effects compared to other aesthetic treatments. Some people experience mild redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites, which usually subside within a few hours to a few days.

It’s important to remember that Profhilo should only be administered by a qualified medical professional such as Emma (BScPara) at KWA. She will assess your individual needs during an initial consultation and determine if Profhilo is the right treatment for you. As with any medical procedure, it’s essential to discuss potential risks, benefits, and expected outcomes with her before undergoing the treatment.

What does Profhilo do to your face?

Profhilo is primarily used for facial rejuvenation and offers several benefits to the face. Here are some of the effects and improvements that Profhilo can provide:

Hydration:
Profhilo contains hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the skin that helps maintain moisture. When injected into the face, Profhilo provides deep hydration, improving skin texture and elasticity. It replenishes the skin’s moisture levels, resulting in a more hydrated and plump appearance.

Skin Tightening:
Profhilo stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that are crucial for maintaining the skin’s firmness and elasticity. As collagen and elastin production increases, the skin becomes tighter, leading to a reduction in sagging and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Improved Skin Quality:
Profhilo enhances the overall quality of the skin by improving its texture, tone, and smoothness. It can help address issues such as roughness, dullness, and uneven skin tone, promoting a more radiant and youthful complexion.

Facial Contouring:
While not as volumizing as dermal fillers, Profhilo can provide subtle facial contouring effects. By improving skin elasticity and tightening, it can help define and lift certain areas of the face, such as the cheeks, jawline, and temples.

Minimal Downtime:
Profhilo is known for its minimal downtime. Most people can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment. The injection sites may have mild redness, swelling, or bruising, but these usually subside within a few hours to a few days.

It’s important to note that the specific effects of Profhilo can vary from person to person, and individual results may differ. To determine if Profhilo is suitable for your specific concerns and goals, it’s advisable to book a consultation with a Emma (BScPara).

How long do Profhilo injections last?

The duration of the effects of Profhilo injections can vary from person to person. On average, the results of a Profhilo treatment can last for 6 to 9 months. However, individual factors such as the person’s age, skin condition, lifestyle, and metabolism can influence how long the effects will persist.

It’s important to note that Profhilo is not a permanent solution for skin rejuvenation thus requires repeat treatments to maintain the desired results. It is advisable to have maintenance treatments every 6 months to sustain the effects.

It’s worth mentioning that while the immediate effects of Profhilo may subside over time, the treatment also stimulates collagen and elastin production in the skin. This collagen and elastin production can continue even after the initial effects have faded, leading to longer-term improvements in skin quality.

Two treatments four weeks apart are administered initially to ensure enough product is placed in the areas for full rejuvenation. Book your consultation with KWA here.

Is Profhilo a replacement for Antiwrinkle treatments?

Profhilo is not typically considered a replacement for anti-wrinkle treatments . While both treatments can be used for facial rejuvenation, they work in different ways and target different concerns.

Profhilo focuses on improving overall skin quality, hydration, and firmness. It stimulates collagen and elastin production, providing a more hydrated and plump appearance to the skin. Profhilo is particularly effective for addressing issues like skin laxity, fine lines, and dullness.

On the other hand, anti-wrinkle treatments work by temporarily relaxing specific muscles responsible for causing wrinkles. They are commonly used to target dynamic wrinkles, which are caused by repetitive facial movements such as frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines.

In many cases, Profhilo and anti-wrinkle treatments can complement each other. Some individuals choose to undergo both treatments to address different aspects of facial aging. For example, they may use Profhilo to improve overall skin quality and hydration, while using anti wrinkle treatments to smooth out specific lines and wrinkles.

Ultimately, the choice between Profhilo and anti-wrinkle treatments depends on your specific concerns, goals, and the recommendations of a qualified medical professional. They will be able to assess your unique needs and provide personalized advice on which treatments or combination of treatments would be most suitable for you.

What exactly does Profhilo do?

Overall, Profhilo is a non-surgical treatment that can provide a subtle and natural-looking improvement in skin quality, without the downtime or risks associated with more invasive procedures. However, as with any cosmetic treatment, it is important to consult with a medically registered, qualified and experienced practitioner to ensure that it is appropriate for your individual needs and goals.
