What is Profhilo?
Profhilo is a unique hyaluronic acid (HA) product that remodels the skin. It not only boosts and hydrates the skin but also provides a lifting and tightening effect. It is not a filler or skin booster.
How does profhilo work
Profhilo stimulates the production of 4 different types of collagen and elastin by slow release of hyaluronic acid. This results in both hydration and lift of the tissues. Its effectiveness is backed by several clinical studies.
How is it administered?
The product is administered by Dr Taylor using five injection points. He has been fully trained in this technique by HA-derma (the manufacturer of Profhilo). This product can only be administered by registered medical practitioners.
At least two treatments are recommended four weeks apart. Results are usually maximal four weeks after the second treatment.
You will likely experience some minor swelling which usually improves within a few hours. The most common side effect is mild bruising. The procedure is considered very safe. There have as yet been no reported significant adverse effects with this type of treatment.
Please note that treatments are unlikely to be given on the day of consultation to allow you to decide whether this is the right treatment for you.
Downtime and aftercare
There is almost no recovery time. Patients may feel some minor pain and discomfort but can return to day-to-day activities immediately.
