Also known as 'injectable moisturisers'; a new wave of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers – including Profhilo – have formed a group of advanced aesthetic treatments known as 'skin boosters', which are currently rising in popularity with women and men.
With every new treatment to land on the skincare scene, it can be a little confusing trying to figure out if this treatment is the right treatment for you.
While we always recommend booking an appointment with one of our highly skilled nurses to discuss your skin's needs, we've taken the legwork out of the research for you and have broken down everything there is to know about Profhilo.
01. What is Profhilo?
Profhilo is part of a new category of injectables known as “skin boosters,” derived from new formulations of Hydrochloric Acid (HA). Profhilo is occasionally mixed with other good-for-your-skin ingredients such as amino acids, and works at hydrating, smoothing and boosting the collagen and elastin in your skin. This ultimately is what gives your skin the appearance of looking smoother, tighter and younger.
02. Why do we need Profhilo?
If you’ve been considering injectables but have reservations, skin boosters are a great way treatment to start with, since they don’t freeze muscles or add significant volume to the face like traditional fillers do. Rather than altering specific facial features, this treatment takes an overall view of your profile and considers the proportions of the nose, forehead, cheeks, lips, chin and jawline.
Our goal at Blanc it not to change the face; but to enhance what is already there.
While traditional fillers stay where they are injected (this is what leads to work that look obvious and ‘over the top’), these new injectables slowly infuse HA through the skin, leaving us with a much more subtle and natural end result. It’s almost impossible to look ‘over the top’ with Profhilo, which is one of the many reasons why we absolutely adore this treatment.
03. What are the benefits of Profhilo?
Profhilo is unique as it spreads across the skin to hydrate the entire area. Profhilo only requires a small handful of injections on each side of the face, and results can last up to six months*. One of our favourite things about Profhilo is that it can easily be added to your current treatment plan as Profhilo goes hand in hand with other injectable boosters.
04. What concerns does Profhilo treat?
Profhilo treats many skin concerns, such as;
Improved skin tone and texture, reduces fine lines, stimulates elastin and collagen production, moisturises and hydrates the skin and creates smoother, tighter and brighter-looking skin.
*Results do vary, and are entirely dependent on each individual, and we highly recommend coming in for a consultation with one of our dermal therapists prior to booking in a treatment.
