You may have heard about Profhilo in the many interviews or videos with celebrities who mention this Italian skin booster as part of their beauty routine. It’s often credited with helping to produce a healthy glowing complexion. Along with Morpheus8 it’s one of the most talked about skin treatments in recent years.
So is it all it’s cracked up to be?
Let’s look at the basic claims..
Skin Hydration and Elasticity: Profhilo not only boosts and hydrates, but also improves the appearance of ageing and sagging skin. The slow release of hyaluronic acid stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, improving skin elasticity and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
Remodeling : Bio-Remodeling Capability: One of Profhilo’s unique features is its bio-remodeling capability – it not only fills and lifts the skin but also rejuvenates it from within.
Natural Looking Results: Unlike some dermal fillers, Profhilo provides a more natural-looking result. It’s aimed to add subtle plumpness and give a youthful healthy glow to the skin.
Versatility: Profhilo can be used in a variety of areas such as the face, neck, decollete, hands, and even areas with thin, crepey skin.
Quick Treatment and Results: The treatment process is typically completed with two sessions over a period of 6-8 weeks, with more noticeable improvements usually seen after the second session as new skin cell growth occurs. The effects last for about six months, although results may vary depending on individual skin types.
Safety and Tolerability: Profhilo is considered safe with a very low risk of adverse reactions. Some users may experience temporary redness, minor bruising, or swelling at the injection sites, but these side effects are typically short-lived.
Is Profhilo similar to fillers?
No. Even although they are both injectable treatments that contain hyaluronic acid, Profhilo functions in a different way. Fillers are mostly used to replace lost volume, smooth out wrinkles and shape contours. Profhilo is a soft gel, primarily used as a skin booster and hydrator. It doesn’t add any significant volume. The high concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid will linger within the tissue, helping to stimulate production of new collagen and elastin, which are vital components of healthy, youthful skin.
The treatment spreads within the skin to treat a large area rather than staying at the point of injection. This makes Profhilo ideal for improving overall skin appearance, elasticity and signs of ageing across large areas of the face, neck, and hands, giving an overall rejuvenated appearance. Some patients may choose to use both in a combined treatment plan for optimal results.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
A single treatment can give noticeable results, but for optimal improvement and longer-lasting effects, 2 treatments are generally recommended – around 1 month apart.
SO DOES IT ACTUALLY WORK AND IS IT WORTHWHILE?
We offer single sessions from £250 and the recommended double treatment from £450. The product isn’t cheap, but we’ve seen the results to be effective – however it does take some time, so be patient!
You won’t get the quick impact that wrinkle injections or fillers can give. But when comparing before and after photos, after 6-8 weeks there is usually a definate improvement and clients often remark on how nice it feels to have softer, smoother well hydrated skin.
The product has won multiple beauty industry awards including ‘product of the year‘ and this wouldn’t happen without many clinicians noticing good results and receiving positive feedback from clients.
The way we see it, it’s best to compare to a luxury skin cream, and given the choice, we would recommend Profhilo over any product applied externally, where the active ingredients don’t really penetrate beyond the surface layer.
Hyaluronic acid is Hydrophilic – the molecules attract and retain moisture within the skin, and Profhilo has a slow release formula that will last for weeks, and then can show the benefits of new healthy skin cell growth for months.
So it really depends if you can afford it or if you really need it. Younger people with a healthy diet and lifestyle may not see much visible improvement, even though it’s helping to maintain their appearance. Those with more visible signs of aging may see it as well worth the cost.
If you’re after a treatment that improves overall skin tone and texture, then Profhilo might be just what you’ve been dreaming of. Hyaluronic acid is proven to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, the duo behind that youthful, bounce-back quality in your skin. And the moisturising effect is nice too, especially to those with dry flaky skin. It’s like giving your skin a big, refreshing drink of water, and who doesn’t like that, right?
Imagine seeing your skin transform with that healthy, dewy glow in just a month’s time!
The downside compared to skin creams is the risk of a little bit of redness, minor bruising, or swelling at the injection sites, but these side effects are usually very short-lived and worth it for the long lasting results.
Beauty often comes with a cost and Profhilo treatments may seem a bit pricey, but when you factor in the benefits like improved skin hydration, elasticity, and overall rejuvenation, it can be a worthwhile investment in your skin health.
Keep in mind that individual experiences can vary, and what works for one person may not work for another. Generally we’ve seen that most clients are very happy with the results, but for a few the effect is more subtle.
In conclusion, if you’re looking for a treatment to boost hydration, improve skin texture, and help to give that coveted youthful glow, Profhilo might just be worth every penny. Happy glowing, folks!
