Profhilo is a revolutionary treatment that is available at Edgbaston Wellness and Medispa that uses Hyaluronic acid gel to nourish hydrate and revitalize the skin. Treatment impoves the elasticity and firmness in the skin. It is a quick and effective injectable treatment that may be used on the face, neck and suitable for both men and women.
The hyaluronic acid that is injected below the surface of the skin hydrates and invigorates the skin, reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, thinning of skin. The injected filler will increase collagen and allow for firming the skin and is a revolutionary anti-ageing treatment that keeps further deterioration and age related skin damage at bay.
Profhilo will not fill heavy lines, although it is effective for the accordion lines and for firming the marionette area,. It is also very effective for the loose skin on the neck and décolleté. The treatment will greatly improve plumpness and vitality of your skin and it’s general appearance, rather than delivering a targeted, localised results that dermal fillers bring. Series of treatment will leave your skin more taught and with a dewy glow.
Usually, the treatment will consist of a few injections into the upper cheekbones, the jawline, and either side of the nose on both sides of the face. A very fine needle is used and you can expect a slight stinging sensation as the liquid is pushed under the skin. We always offer patients numbing cream prior to the injectable treatments, which reduced the stinging sensation, making the treatment more comfortable.
You can expect to have a few very small, small mosquito-like bumps at the points of injections for three to four hours after the procedure, whilst the acid is dispersing. Depending on your type of skin, you may have a few bumps for a couple of days. You can return to your daily tasks straight away.
