How Does Profhilo Work?
To understand how Profhilo works, you first need to understand what hyaluronic acid is and why it’s important to the look and feel of your skin. It’s a naturally occurring substance found in our skin, joints, and connective tissue. The role of hyaluronic acid is to help bind moisture in the skin and also help in the production of collagen and elastin.
As people get older, their bodies produce less and less hyaluronic acid, which is what causes your skin to age. The lack of hyaluronic acid production leads to a lack of skin hydration and skin laxity, which in turn leads to the formation of wrinkles in your skin.
Profhilo is a treatment that contains a very high concentration of hyaluronic acid, the most of any other available skin treatment. However, Profhilo is not a traditional skin filler. Since the development process doesn’t chemically bond, rather, thermally, it acts as more of a super-hydrater than a filler.
Profhilo has the consistency of a gel-like substance, which enables it to be distributed very smoothly and evenly throughout the skin, unlike traditional fillers that have a tendency to form lumps in the skin. Because of this, Profhilo can be used on areas of the body that fillers can’t treat, such as the decollete, neck, and even forehead.
What Profhilo does is stimulate the reproduction of new collagen and elastin through the release of hyaluronic acid. This is essentially what makes Profhilo different, and in the eyes of many, superior, to other skin treatments. The purpose of Profhilo is not to cover up or hide skin imperfections. Profhilo can actually remedy these imperfections by stimulating the natural production of collagen and elastin. Profhilo is all about skin tone texture hydration and improving skin laxity.
What Does the Profhilo Treatment Look Like?
The great thing about Profhilo is that it is a super quick treatment, which will only take about 15 minutes. Profhilo is injected under the skin with a needle into 10 locations on the body that have been strategically predetermined to produce even results.
The treatment is almost completely painless and most people who undergo a Profhilo treatment do not need to use a topical numbing cream beforehand. Most experts recommend that you receive two Profhilo treatments, about a four weeks apart in order to gain the best possible results.
Top up treatments can also be recommended, usually after a period of six months to help prolong the effect of Profhilo, but these types of recommendations are usually made on a case by case basis.
People love Profhilo because they can see the results of the treatment straight away. As soon as you’re done with the treatment, your skin will appear smoother and brighter.
Where is Profhilo Injection sites?
As mentioned above there are a total of 10 injection sites in the process of administering Profhilo. Strategically, five injection points are on one side of the face and five are on the other. Using this technique, means the treatment is able to focus on areas of the skin which are the most weathered and damaged.
These are the five locations of the Profhilo injection points:
- Nasal Base (in line with the nostril)
- Tragus (in line with the ear lobe)
- Zygomatic Protrusion (the cheekbone)
- The Chin
- Mandibular Angle (jawline)
We can assure you that despite the fact that there are 10 injections being used in a Profhilo treatment, the clinical tests have shown that this treatment is one of the safest, anatomically speaking, as it makes sure to avoid all nerves and large vessels located in these areas of the face.
