As we age, the skin loses vital substances such as collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid (HA), the building blocks of a youthful and toned complexion. As this happens, many of us seek non-surgical solutions to restore the tone, texture and beauty of our skin. Dr. Dan Dhunna offers a range of injectable skin restoration therapies and is proud to be able to add to his already impressive treatment portfolio with an innovative, proven and effective injectable skin remodelling treatment for the beautification of ageing skin. This treatment is Profhilo®
What is Profhilo?
Profhilo® is a hyaluronic acid skin revitaliser which is different to Botox and dermal fillers in its application and results. Profhilo® takes around 10 minutes to administer and lasts up to 6 months. Profhilo® requires 2 treatment sessions, 4 weeks apart and is administered in to 5 injection points on the face and stimulates 4 different types of collagen and elastin.
Profhilo® is effective due to the slow release of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar within the skin, connective tissues and joints. HA can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water and therefore is a super-hydrator for the skin.
How does Profhilo work?
The stimulation of collagen and elastin fibres results in significant improvement in the renewed quality of the skin tissues. Profhilo® is not a dermal filler in that it will not ‘fill’ specific areas of the skin and is not a muscle relaxant as is Botox. Profhilo® delivers an overall effect of luminosity and hydration. Profhilo® can complement other aesthetic treatments by significantly improving the quality of skin tissue and is one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market.
Is Profhilo safe?
Following its launch in 2015, Profhilo® has been used globally for over 150,000 patients and so far, there have been no adverse reactions reported. This is largely since Profhilo® is made from ultrapure HA with no chemical cross linking agents. This significantly reduces the risk of adverse reactions and makes the product well tolerated by the skin. Dr Dhunna has been using only the very safest and proven products to treat his patients for many years and you can rest assured that Profhilo® is proud to be able to offer this within his clinic.
Your Profhilo treatment
Profhilo® is most commonly used in the upper and lower face but it can also be used in areas such as the décolletage, neck, hands, elbows and knees.
After a course of Profhilo® you can expect to see a more hydrated, glowing and luminous complexion with an improved tone and texture. Lines and wrinkles can be depleted and the skin will appear smoother and tighter. In cases where more repair is required, Dr Dhunna may advise you to have another course of treatment, six months after the initial session.
