If you’ve been scanning the internet in the search for cosmetic procedures you might well have come across Profhilo Kent and found yourself wondering what it is. Profhilo is an amazing treatment for anyone wanting to give their skin a boost. It’s good for all ages and not only helps those wanting to get back a youthful glow, but also those wanting to maintain healthy skin all year round.
What is Profhilo?
Profhilo is an injectable treatment made from hyaluronic acid, it can be used in the arms, face, neck, hands or pretty much anywhere that the skin is showing signs of ageing. The Profhilo will improve skin tone along with hydration and firmness, it can even reduce lines in the face.
The use of hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid is very commonly used as a filler now, but because of how the Profhilo is made up, rather than giving the impression of a fuller feature as it does with dermal filler, the hyaluronic acid is able to spread more evenly across the body area giving the impression of remodelled skin.
How Profhilo works
Hyaluronic acid is used in the body to retain moisture and aid the body’s natural production of collagen, as it’s able to hold a thousand times its own weight in water and it makes it the perfect product for binding moisture to the skin. As we get older our natural supply of hyaluronic acid begins to dwindle which is why our skin becomes dull and sagging and we begin to develop wrinkles.
Profhilo is one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid you can get and works perfectly as a hydrating agent as opposed to a filler for this reason.
Once the product has been injected into the skin it quickly disperses and then connects with the skin tissue to boost hydration. Then you enter a new phase, over the next four weeks or so the Profhilo will begin to instigate a new boosting of elastin in the skin as it activates collagen production again. This pretty much remodels the skin giving it a hydrated, firm, youthful glow.
Another wonderful feature of Profhilo is that because it’s such a smooth consistency and thus distributed very evenly across the skin, there’s a very low risk of any bumps or lumps forming and so areas that previously haven’t been easy to treat with filler such as the neck or forehead now are.
How many treatments are needed?
For most it will be two treatments in the first instance set around a month a part. A third session could well be recommended for some people, and in six months a top up treatment will likely be required.
Who can have Profhilo?
As mentioned anyone can have Profhilo as it’s a hydrating product at its core. The treatment works amazingly for those over the age of 40, but people wanting to safeguard their youthful glow can start the treatment much younger. It’s best you discuss your individual situation with a registered practitioner, as every case is of course different and your skin type will need to be assessed properly.
