Areas most commonly treated with Profhilo include the décolletage, face, neck, and hands but all body areas are suitable for Profhilo treatment.
Profhilo treatment is suitable for both men and women who experience loose, sagging or excess skin or further signs of ageing. If you are looking for a minimally invasive, comfortable treatment that can restore a youthful look to your skin, then Profhilo could be suitable for you.
All injectable treatments have minor risks, this includes bruising and swelling, infection, allergic reaction, vascular compromise and nerve damage. These side effects are rare and unlikely to occur but can also be discussed in your free consultation if you have any concerns.
Profhilo is an injectable treatment however the treatment is carried out with a very fine needle, so you should not be in too much discomfort. Following the treatment, you may experience mild redness, pain, itching, discoloration or tenderness at the injection sites but again these symptoms do not last long. You can use a cold pack to reduce any redness or swelling following the aftercare advice of your practitioner. If you have any concerns regarding your Profhilo treatment these can be discussed in a free consultation.
You can go back to your regular routine immediately after your Profhilo treatment although we do advise that you avoid exercise for 24 hours, extreme temperatures for 2 days, dental procedure for at least 2 weeks and then no further cosmetic treatment for at least 2 days.
The first step is to meet your patient advisor. You’ll be able to talk to them about why you’re considering Profhilo treatment, whether it is right for you, the likely costs and finance options, and when you’d like to have the treatment. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our professional practitioners or nurses.
At your free consultation, your professional practitioner or nurse will ask you about the results you want to achieve. They’ll guide you through your treatment options and create a treatment plan for you. You can discuss every aspect of your treatment with no obligation to go ahead. Our practitioners and nurses are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you have. If you feel ready to go ahead, we can book your treatment in for a date and time that suits you.
On the day of your treatment, you’ll be able to go through any last-minute questions with your practitioner or nurse. The Profhilo filler is injected just below the skin’s surface typically in 2 sessions and it then disperses quickly across the injection site to instantly hydrate, which then smooths fine lines and wrinkles and generally improves skin texture. The gel-like consistency means the Profhilo filler is distributed smoothly and evenly, without the formation of any bumps, which is a potential risk with other traditional fillers. The treatment is very quick and the results are immediate.
You will be able to leave the clinic as soon is your treatment has been completed, and you should be fine to go about your normal day-to-day activities. You may experience some redness for an hour or so after treatment.
