If the thought of laser resurfacing or painful ultrasound skin tightening treatments makes you grimace with fear, yet your looking for an easy, affordable skin rejuvenator… then look no further than Profhilo. Hailed as the ‘glow injector’, this unique product has taken the aesthetic world by storm. No wonder beauty editors are clambering to endorse its incredible results.
Profhilo not only boosts skin hydration leaving it looking dewy but it’s also been shown stimulate collagen production subsequently increasing your skin’s elasticity. The end result? Firmer skin after 8 weeks. Thats how long it will take for the skin to remodel itself.
There’s a role for this treatment not only in the 30-40 age group but also the maturer skin. Profhilo® has been specially formulated to contain a unique level of Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occurring substance found in our bodies that is responsible for maintaining moisture within our skin. As we get older the amount found in our skin decreases. This water-holding molecule can retain 1,000 times its weight in water within skin cells. In essence it’s role is to keep skin plump and hydrated. Due to the way Profhilo® has been made, it acts as a hydrator rather than a filler, and is therefore fantastic for those with tired, dull and ageing skin as it provides overall more plump and luminous skin.
It’s a two session treatment, 4 weeks apart. It disperses quickly across the skin to instantly boost hydration, consequently smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in improved skin texture. There is no down time with this treatment. So I took the plunge myself. My skin was needing a bit of TLC after winter weather and drying central heating.
It consists of five injections around each side of your face just below the skin surface (10 altogether): to the side of your eye, to the lower side of your nose, next to the ear, the outer corner of your jaw and below the side of your lip. Numbing cream is applied before so it’s a pain-free procedure.
The benefit can be seen within 4 weeks after the first session but by the 2nd morning I noticed a real glow about my skin. A further third treatment can be performed 8 weeks later. Results last between 6-12 months depending on patient factors.
Take the challenge, I did and loved it. There’s no alteration to your face shape it merely makes you look amazing!
