Why is everyone going crazy for this injectable?
This injectable if you must know is Profhilo, no secrets there but what’s truly a wonder is that unlike other fads, Profhilo is still the town’s hottest topic years after it has launched and is still everyone’s favourite injectable to have.
If you’re wondering what Profhilo is and why it is still the talk of the town, read on to find out all about this anti-aging injectable that has won the hearts (and faces) of so many.
What is Profhilo?
Profhilo is a hyaluronic acid treatment for the face, not to be confused with dermal fillers despite being similar in its content. Without adding volume to the face, Profhilo’s main call to fame is its ability to boost hydration levels in the skin while targeting skin laxity and restoring firmness. In other words, it’s an ideal treatment option for ageing and sagging skin.
After the injection, hyaluronic acid sets to work by filling fine lines and wrinkles, and improving overall skin texture. Many swear by the visible change and improvement in skin tone, texture, elasticity, firmness and radiance all without changing the volume and shape of one’s face.
What is the treatment process like?
Good news for those who are often short on time, Profhilo is a very quick and straightforward procedure. Prior to the treatment, you have the option to have numbing cream applied to get you settled in more comfortably. This typically takes around 20 minutes including a facial cleanse.
This is followed with your doctor marking out the points on your face where he/ she will be injecting you. There are only five points on each side of the face that will marked for the injection so, in total the process requires 10 quick injections to the face.
After the treatment, you may notice small bumps where the injection points were but these typically subside within the next 12 hours. Other than this, there is no downtime, and you can proceed to get on with your day.
How often can one have Profhilo?
Depending on your skin and its concerns, you do have the option to start off the second course of treatment one month after, and the 3rd course 6 months after the last. Otherwise if you’re just looking for a little boost, you can choose to spread out your treatments anywhere between 6 months to a year.
Can Profhilo only be done for the face?
is versatile enough to be used on other parts of the face that is in need of hydration or a lift. This means areas such as your neck, hands and even crepey knees could all get in and reap the benefits of Profhilo.
