Skin Remodelling Treatment

Skin Remodelling Treatment

profhiloProfhilo® is an innovative product that integrates into the tissue where it restores the levels of hyaluronic acid naturally found in the skin. Clinical data confirms that it stimulates the remodelling of the skin improving skin texture, elasticity, and hydration with an immediate tightening effect. It contains a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid than dermal filler, but it does not work like dermal fillers. It contains both short and long chains of hyaluronic acid fused by NAHYCO hybrid technology to provide exceptional benefits to the skin. Unlike dermal fillers, it promotes tissue regeneration without adding volume. By influencing skin cells at a cellular level, it improves the function of the skin as a whole.

It is both highly stable yet highly flowable and once injected, able to spread like honey beneath the skin.

Skin benefits:

Improves skin laxity
Improves skin texture
Improve the skin’s overall tone
Enhances hydration
Produces a healthy glow.

As an injectable hyaluronic acid product, it can be used in any part of the body to improve skin laxity including neck, hands, arms, abdomen, and legs.

Hyaluronic acid is a clear gel-like material produced in our body. It is composed of a chain of sugar molecules found in high concentrations in our skin. Here it works by attracting and holding on to water to hydrate the skin while volumising and lubricating the surrounding tissue. Hyaluronic acid not only helps skin elasticity but also has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to help skin heal.

We break down our natural hyaluronic acid every few days and new ones are constantly produced. As we get older, the rate of hyaluronic acid production slows down. This can be affected by internal and external factors leading to poor skin laxity, dehydrated skin and skin that lacks lustre. By using the right form of hyaluronic acid in our skincare or injecting it into the skin, we can replenish the hyaluronic acid levels in our skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does Profhilo work?
By injecting the hyaluronic acid directly into the skin layer where it is needed, it can be used to treat skin laxity in any part of the body. The advantage of this is instant hydration as well as collagen stimulation over the following weeks.
What happens during a treatment session?
For facial treatment, you would have injections in 5 standard locations on your cheeks and lower face per side. The process takes about 20-30 minutes. You do not require and numbing cream prior to this procedure. You should avoid makeup immediately following the treatment to prevent infection. You can normally return to normal activities after treatment.

I will give you my personal mobile number to use if you have any concerns. It is advisable not to wear makeup and avoid strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours after the procedure. Avoid intensive sunlight for 2-3 weeks post-procedure. It is recommended to have a good skincare routine with sunscreen following the procedure to gain optimal results.
