You know that feeling when you look in the mirror and the face looking back at you isn’t the plump youthful one it once was. There’s no volume to your cheeks and there’s a hollowing under the eyes – an overall general look of deflation.
But what to do? You’re ’re not sure about dermal fillers, having seen too many photos of celebrities, with trout pouts and chipmunk cheeks. You’re simply looking for that, seemingly elusive, natural-looking, youthful glow.
Profhilo® may be the answer. This breakthrough skincare treatment is an injectable form of hyaluronic acid (HA). You’ve no doubt heard all about the benefits of HA. Famed for its powerful anti-ageing and hydrating properties, it has become an essential ingredient in leading-edge skincare products.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring, gel-like substance in our skin which acts like a sponge. It holds in moisture and makes skin appear plump, smooth and hydrated. As we get older the body slows down its production of this vital ingredient. This results in a visible loss of firmness, pliability and suppleness.
Profhilo® contains 100% pure HA. It is injected just below the skin’s surface, hydrating the skin from the inside out. Not only does it provide deep-down, long-lasting hydration, but it also remodels by boosting production of firming collagen and springy elastin production to gently tighten skin and soften fine lines. The beauty of this treatment for anyone who simply wants to look refreshed and rejuvenated, less tired and drawn, is that it does not plump or add volume like fillers. Instead it restores the naturally occurring HA that has been lost with age and produces natural-looking results.
An exceptionally versatile treatment Profhilo® can be used in areas where there is a loss of volume and an increase in “crepeyness” such as the face, neck, décolletage, upper arms, hands and lip line.
A single course of Profhilo® involves two injectable treatments four weeks’ apart. Results appear usually after about four weeks’ and increase over time with new collagen and elastin forming. The effects are long-lasting, typically lasting around six months. Courses can be repeated every six months to maintain results.
When considering undergoing any aesthetic treatment it is always advised to thoroughly research both the procedure and the practitioner.
