Your face is the first thing that people notice about you. In time, your skin loses it’s full, firm, youthful appearance. This is the result of the natural ageing process. Over time, your skin becomes thinner or loses its natural elasticity. As a result, it becomes loose and starts to wrinkle. The prospect of treating sagging skin and wrinkles without long incisions and downtime, i.e. with no recovery period, has great appeal to the majority of clients who are looking for subtle improvements but not ready for a traditional facelift. The new and effective anti-ageing skin care beauty treatment for younger looking skin is Profhilo®.
What Is Profhilo®?
Profhilo® (Skin stimulator) is a bioremodeling treatment which delivers one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid available to date in aesthetics. This is an injectable treatment placed just under the skin where it disperses quickly.
Profhilo® is a stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid indicated for the treatment of tissue remodelling and skin laxity, free of any chemical cross linking agents. Anyone who presents with signs of skin ageing and is suitable for dermal filler treatment is also suitable for treatment with Profhilo.
The key to Profhilo® popularity is a unique structure and balance of scientific properties, including a high cohesively that allow the product to flow freely through subcutaneous tissue and the dermis, in a way that traditional hyaluronic acid fillers cannot.
Hybrid complexing allows Profhilo® to provide greater benefits than each type of hyaluronic acid it contains, without the disadvantages.
Profhilo® has better active restorative capabilities than low molecular weight hyaluronic acid. However, rather than being pro inflammatory, Profhilo® is actually less inflammatory than even high molecular weight hyaluronic acid, and also has its restructuring capabilities.
Profhilo® is performed in two treatment sessions initially, 4 weeks apart and targets areas of the skin which are losing elasticity and hydration due to the ageing process.
Immediately after treatment you will notice a firming and toning of the treated areas as Profhilo® hydrates and rejuvenates fine lines and wrinkles. Over the next 4 weeks after treatment, Profhilo® works to boost your own collagen and elastin to give your skin the glow of youth. Your skin will appear smoother, firmer and plumper.
Hyaluronic acid is well known as a Dermal Filler which provides hydration as well as a lifting effect. Profhilo® however, has been developed with thermal bonds rather than chemical bonds, making it unlike Dermal Fillers and more like an injectable moisturiser. The smooth highly cohesive gel will flow through large areas of the skin without leaving behind any lumps. This makes it highly suitable for areas such as the back of hands, face, décolletage and neck. The unique characteristics of remodelling skin laxity is easily obtained in only two sessions at Melanie Jayne’s Beauty & Aesthetics Clinic
After the initial first two treatments single top up treatments are recommended every 6 months to maintain the results. This is an incredibly popular treatment especially for clients who aren’t looking for the change that Dermal Fillers can often make to your appearance, but who just want the bounce back in their skin that the ageing process has diminished. This treatment is ideally suited for clients age 30 plus who are noticing a change in the appearance of their skin with the ageing process and damage from environmental factors such as sun exposure. There is very little downtime from this treatment allowing you to carry on as normal, but with the knowledge that Profhilo® is working from within to give you the results you desire.
Before making the injections with an ultra-fine needle, a numbing cream can be applied to the area, ensuring any pain is kept to a minimum.
The procedure takes about 30 minutes to complete. It is injected in the superficial subcutaneous layer. The technique used for Profhilo® injections is known as BIO AESTHETIC POINTS (BAP). In this technique, the 5 Points injection site are marked for each side of the face and then Profhilo® is carefully injected at these sites. This BAP technique is created for the lower third of the face due to its predisposition to dermal atrophy caused by the aging process. It promotes the production of collagen and elastin underneath the skin which gives the skin a more youthful texture.
NOTE: Profhilo® is the first stabilised hyaluronic acid (HA) based product which is manufactured without the use of Chemical crossed-linking agents (BDDE) and is used for skin remodelling and treating skin laxity, not for just filling lines and wrinkles. According to the makers, it delivers dramatic improvement in tissue quality, even in challenging areas, and is complimentary to other aesthetic treatments and derma filler procedures.

The common risks are: temporary redness or bruising, swelling, pain.
The rare risks are: infection, skin discolouration, bumps and nodules.
Downtime And Recovery
Profhilo® causes very minimal sensation and discomfort during the procedure. It has no downtime and recovery period because it is also a non-surgical procedure like other fillers. You can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment, however you should try to avoid the sun for the rest of the day and also it is advisable to avoid massaging the treated areas, or exercise and sauna.
Clients can expect increased firmness, smoothness, elasticity and an overall improved quality of the skin by improving laxity of the tissue. Results can be seen between 1 week to 1 month and the effect lasts up to six months. Successful results depend on health or age of the skin, quality of product used as well as the correct placement of the product. To get the desirable results, the treatment should be performed with one month interval, depending on the level of ageing. If the procedure is not repeated, the skin will gradually return to its pre-treatment condition. Touch-ups and maintenance treatments can then be recommended by Mel, your Aesthetic Practitioner according to your body’s response to the treatment. For most clients, two treatments are recommended four weeks apart, with a follow-up appointment at week eight, to be repeated twice a year for optimal Profhilo® results.
