Profhilo is a new and innovative treatment that helps to combat skin laxity, restoring healthy and glowing skin. This combines bio-remodelling with a tightening effect.
Profhilo is a newly developed hyaluronic acid injectable treatment which is ideal for dry or ageing skin. This can be used either as a stand-alone treatment or alongside other aesthetic treatments such as dermal filler and wrinkle-relaxing injections. In comparison to hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, Profhilo is not cross-linked. The patented process means that the hyaluronic acid is slowly released into the skin.
All Profhilo treatments are performed by cosmetic physician Dr Owen Thomas.

Profhilo hydrates the skin using natural hyaluronic acid but also remodels the skin by promoting the production of collagen and elastin, therefore smoothing and tightening the skin. This softens lines and areas of shadowing and is therefore anti-aging, hydrating much more deeply than any topical moisturiser could.
Most patients experience a reduction in dryness at around 3-4 weeks after the first injection with an improvement in skin quality due to collagen and lasting around a month after the second injection.
Because this contains natural hyaluronic acid, Profhilo is biocompatible, therefore nonallergic with an excellent safety profile and a prolonged duration. The absence of BDDE (because of the patented process) means significantly less inflammatory reaction after injecting Profhilo.

Anyone from their thirties onwards who wants to keep their skin firm, and those that have noticed the initial signs of laxity or have visible signs of ageing skin. This is the ideal time to begin preventive therapies to combat the changes.
With ageing, we start losing significant connective tissue after the age of 30. In some, the tissue quality drops more rapidly, and people may look older than their actual age. If you feel the quality of your facial tissue has started to become lax or is sagging, you should consider this option, where Profhilo fits beautifully.
It can have more of a preventive effect in younger people by strengthening the skin’s collagen and elastin and increasing its hydration.
Profhilo® diffuses within the tissue after injection and over the period of 4 weeks after each injection, it stimulates 4 different types of collagen and elastin. You will start to see improvements after 4 weeks of the first treatment; however, the best results usually are 8 weeks after the first session.
As with every treatment, results will vary from person to person and depend upon the degree of correction required, your age and lifestyle, and your body’s response to treatment.
Profhilo is mainly used to treat the face, neck and decolletage. It can also be used to treat upper arms, knees and the abdominal area.
In contrast to wrinkle reducing and dermal filler procedures, Profhilo® stimulates collagen and elastin, drawing water into the dermis in much greater amounts. Profhilo® is precisely injected into the skin in several points before spreading under and through the dermis. As a stabilized substance, elastin and collagen are stimulated by a slower-released form of hyaluronic acid. This causes a significant boost in tissue quality. Because of this, we cannot say that Profhilo® is a skin booster as it also has a significant tightening/lifting effect on tissue.
A Profhilo treatment process usually consists of just two sessions, administered about one month apart. After around six months, an additional session might be required to create a longer-term effect, if desired.
There are no known serious adverse effects associated with Profhilo therapy. Some redness or bruising may occur after injection, but this will usually disappear within a few hours and is not a cause for concern. To date, over a million patients have received Profhilo across the world without any known cases of significant adverse consequences.

Dull skin often is the result of a buildup of dead skin cells (keratinocytes).
As we age, various signs start to appear, and one that often causes concern is the dreaded “turkey neck.” Characterized by loose, sagging skin and vertical banding on the neck, turkey neck can affect our self-confidence and make us feel self-conscious about our appearance. Fortunately, there are ways to address this common aesthetic concern.
