Restore youthful skin once more with Profhilo

Over time, the ageing process can really take its toll and the skin can show a myriad of concerns. Dryness, dehydration, skin laxity, sagging, loss of volume and fine lines and deeper wrinkles are all a sign than time is taking its toll. Not a welcome thought. At Bank MediSpa in Hale, Cheshire, we are passionate about the health and glow of your skin and have researched some of the most innovative injectable treatments, in order to offer you skin remodelling and rejuvenation in a matter of minutes with results than can last months at a time. One of our most popular treatments right now, is an injectable skin remodelling product called Profhilo®. This is a traditional dermal filler, but a substance that will work on a cellular level, with your skin to restore and replenish your complexion.


What is Profhilo®?

Profhilo® is a hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable skincare. It is not thick like a dermal filler, but more fluid and assists in the rejuvenation of the skin’s architecture from the inside, over a course of 2 treatments. Profhilo® contains superlative quality HA and stimulates 4 different types of collagen and elastin. It helps to restore that bouncy and plump skin texture that is so synonymous with youth and vitality . Profhilo® does not physically augment the skin like a dermal filler as it doesn’t sit innately under the skin to literally ‘plump’ it up, but integrates with the skin tissues to communicate with the cells for repair and revitalisation. Profhilo® can be used effectively as a stand-alone treatment for an overall anti-ageing effect, or can be used in conjunction with other aesthetic treatments such as dermal fillers, if you require an instant filling effect and with Botox® anti-wrinkle injections, for a holistic approach to anti-ageing cosmetic treatments.


How does Profhilo® work?

Profhilo works by harnessing the slow release of hyaluronic acid (HA) over 2 treatment sessions. Injections of the HA substance are administered at 5 localised points around the area of concern. This stimulates 4 types of collagen and elastin and after 2 sessions, a month apart, you can expect to see tighter, more toned and more revitalised glowing skin with reduced lines and wrinkles. If you have a significant amount of skin ageing which needs intensive treatment, another ‘top up’ session may be required around 6 months after your initial course.

Is Profhilo safe?

Profhilo was first launched in February 2015 in Italy and has been used, globally with over 150,000 patients treated so far with no adverse reactions or side-effects reported. Profhilo is made from an ultrapure and natural hyaluronic acid with no chemical cross-linking (thickening) agents, which significantly reduces the risk of adverse reactions. As HA is a naturally occurring substance within the body, it is very well tolerated by the skin. The only possible side-effects may be slight swelling, localized lumps, redness or tenderness at the point of injection which is quite natural for any injectable treatment and will subside within a few hours.

When will I notice a difference?

This depends on your individual response to treatment. You may notice results after around 4 weeks following your first treatment but many patients see an improvement after 1 or 2 days. Some people find that they don’t see an improvement until after their second treatment but optimum effects will be seen at around 8 to 10 weeks after the initial treatment.

What areas can Profhilo treat?

Due to the very high concentration of HA in Profhilo, the quality of the skin tissues can be significantly improved making it a superb treatment to use as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with other injectables such as wrinkle-smoothing injections.

Profhilo can be used in the following areas:

  • Face
  • Hands
  • Elbows
  • Knees
  • Décolletage

How is Profhilo® different?

It’s important to know that Profhilo is not a dermal filler but is considered more like an injectable skincare as it has a lower viscosity to most HA dermal fillers (a thinner consistency). Therefore, if you want to see a significant improvement in the plumpness and firmness of your skin without the volumization of traditional dermal fillers, this would be the treatment for you.

How long will results last with Profhilo®?

Results from Profhilo can last anything up to 6 months, depending on your individual quality, age and lifestyle choices such as smoking or sunbathing.
