Over time, your face gradually loses volume, become smaller and can develop fine lines, which can create a tired, aged appearance.
Profhilo® is a unique skin remodelling treatment designed for individuals with ageing skin that is lacking volume and elasticity. It works by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin in the skin through the slow release of Hyaluronic Acid (HA). Profhilo® significantly improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and helps to increase hydration and firmness across the face.
Profhilo® has been specially formulated to contain a unique hyaluronic acid formula, which helps to encourage the production of collagen and elastin. It acts as a hydrator rather than a traditional dermal 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 only 2 sessions over a period of 4 weeks, and it disperses quickly to boost and instantly hydrate your skin, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles and resulting in improved skin texture.
At Elite Aesthetics, we offer Profhilo treatments from our doctor-led clinic to clients in Bexley, Bexleyheath, Greenhithe, Dartford, Tunbridge Wells, West Malling, Gravesend, Bromley and Maidstone.
Profhilo has been voted the best treatment of 2019 by The Times, and is incredibly safe, due to the formulation of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally, and the levels of HA in the body are balanced by an enzyme known as hyaluronidase, which breaks down the hyaluronic acid molecules. This is also the substance that breaks down Profhilo fillers over time, meaning that while repeated treatments are required, it is the least disruptive form of filler, as the body is already equipped to work with the main ingredients.
HA is also the substance we use in our dermal fillers, as they are biodegradable, malleable and the safest form of dermal filler on the market.
Why Choose Profhilo®?
The results of Profhilo are always subtle and beautiful, and help to tackle many common signs of ageing. At the age of around 30, we start losing a significant amount of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin, therefore Profhilo® is advised for individuals from around the age of 30 upwards, who wish to target ageing skin and keep their skin looking fresh, youthful, hydrated and healthy.
There is no upper age limit to who can see the results of Profhilo treatment. In fact, in older patients, we have often seen more dramatic results. However, for patients over the age of 60, your treatment does need to be managed especially carefully – for example, if there are deep folds present or the skin has lost elasticity, then combination treatments that include Profhilo® may be more suitable. For example, we can combine Profhilo treatment with Viscoderm Hydrobooster, which is targeted towards improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles specifically, while Profhilo helps to hydrate the skin and create a beautiful, boosted appearance.
The Benefits of Profhilo
As we age, over time our collagen production in the body naturally slows down. Collagen is the substance in our skin that provides elasticity and promotes the appearance of youthful, glowing skin. This slowing of your collagen production leads to a loss of elasticity in the skin, and an increase in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and a sagging or drooping appearance to the skin. This can make people look tired or aged, which for many of our clients at Elite Aesthetics, doesn’t reflect how they truly feel on the inside. The effects of a lack of collagen also extend to the skin on and around the décolletage and face, leading to the appearance of so-called smokers lines, marionette lines and a downturning in the corners of the mouth. All of these things can make you feel insecure about your appearance.
Prohfilo fillers help to lift, boost and smooth skin in the areas they are injected, improving the appearance of these issues, and giving a more youthful appearance.
At Elite Aesthetics, we know that Prohfilo fillers are an art as well as a science, and Dr. Shirin will work closely with you to make sure your results are perfect for you. With extensive medical training and a deep understanding of facial structure and physiology, Dr. Shirin is passionate about making sure that you leave the clinic with the results you have dreamed of, feeling beautiful and more confident.
