We start losing a significant amount of collagen, elastin and Hyaluronic Acid after we reach 30, which means we start to see the signs of ageing in the form of fine lines, wrinkles and slightly lack-lustre skin. At this age, we should start to consider preserving ourselves, therefore Profhilo® is advised for individuals from around the age of 30 upwards, who wish to target ageing skin.
Profhilo® is most commonly used for facial areas, but can also effectively be used for rejuvenating the neck, decollate, arms, knees and hands. Increasingly, the neck is becoming a popular area to have Profhilo®, due to its ability to help reduce crepe-like skin and sagginess, whilst encouraging a firmer appearance. 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), which helps to encourage the production of collagen and elastin across the skin. 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.
Profhilo® is injected just below the skin’s surface in two sessions, four weeks apart, to enhance the effect. Each session costs £250. The results from Profhilo® treatments will most often last for up to six months, but results can differ from person to person.
