The revolutionary bio remodelling injectable
Written by Dr De Silva
Life can take its toll on our skin. UV rays, pollution, the natural ageing process that our skin goes through over time and certain lifestyle choices such as smoking and not drinking enough water can mean that our skin can become lax, dehydrated and crêpey. A sobering thought indeed. However, cosmetic medicine has developed some incredible solutions to skin ageing over the past few years and at The Harley Street Face Clinic, we are super-excited to be offering one of the world’s most popular ‘injectable skincare’. This injectable skin elixir is called Profhilo®.
Profhilo® is a revolutionary injectable, hyaluronic acid (HA), skin remodelling treatment which can replenish the skin’s architecture and increase hydration and resilience within the skin tissues. It can only be administered by medical professionals and is injected in to 5 points around the areas on the face that cause concern. Profhilo® not only replenishes the skin with high-grade HA, but stimulates 4 different types of collagen and elastin. The stimulation of these vital substances results in the significant improvement of skin quality, resilience, tone and texture. Unlike a traditional dermal filler, Profhilo® is dispersed in to the skin tissues and stimulates the skin to ‘work’ for itself, thus achieving a more overall skin improvement, rather than plumping, sculpting or filling one particular facial feature.
A course of Profhilo® usually consists of two injectable treatments, one month apart. After which, you can expect to see a more hydrated, plump, glowing and luminous complexion. Fine lines can be significantly reduced and your skin will appear smoother and lifted. If you are experiencing significant skin ageing or laxity, you may be advised to have another session with Profhilo® at The Harley Street Face Clinic, six months after your initial course.
As far as downtime with Profhilo® is concerned, you may experience some localized lumps, not unlike gnat bites, around the sites of injection for around twenty four hours. These tiny lumps will subside as the product is dispersed in to the skin tissues. You might also experience some swelling and slight bruising after your Profhilo® treatment, all of which are normal and temporary responses.
The longevity of your results can vary, depending on how you take care of your skin and your general health. However, you should experience more hydrated, luminous and firmer skin for up to six months following your initial treatment with Profhilo®, so this treatment can be an excellent way to maintain longer-term results, along with a healthy lifestyle and good skincare regime.
Profhilo® has an excellent safety record with no significant, negative side-effects. Our patients who undergo this treatment are delighted with the results and have commented that their skin is more hydrated, youthful and glowing for months at a time, with little-to-no downtime after their treatment. Why put up with ageing skin when Profhilo® can restore your skin to a more youthful appearance in a matter of weeks!
