Restore a youthful glow, lift the skin and plump out areas that have lost tone and volume.
The effects of ageing can be so unkind to the skin. From dullness and dehydration, lines and wrinkles to volume loss, sinking cheeks and hollow-looking eyes and deep-set temples. We would all like to stay as youthful-looking as we can and for most of us, invasive surgery is neither necessary or wanted and we may just need a helping hand to bring our skin back to life. Traditional dermal fillers have their place in the anti-ageing arena, but if you’re looking for more of a full-face rejuvenation treatment to bring you back your glow, you may be seeking something that will work with the skin to heal and replenish itself from the inside.
At Pure Perfection Clinic in Rossett, near Chester, Cheshire and Wrexham on the North Wales border, we offer this unique skin-remodelling procedure to revive, restore and intensely hydrate skin that has become lacklustre due to the natural ageing process. This revolutionary treatment is called Profhilo®.
Which conditions can be treated with Profhilo®?
- Uneven skin texture
- Dehydrated, dull skin
- General ageing – loss of volume and sagging skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Weakened, crêpey skin
- Mild volume loss
What is Profhilo®?
Profhilo® is an innovative, state-of-the-art hyaluronic acid (HA), injectable skin remodelling system, which can assist in the rejuvenation of the skin’s architecture. When expertly placed into 5 key areas of the face, by a fully-qualified and trained practitioner, Profhilo® stimulates 4 different types of collagen and elastin, the vital components of youthful, toned skin; which diminish considerably as we age. It does this due to the slow release of the highest-quality hyaluronic acid; a naturally occurring substance within the body, found in the skin, joints, eyes and connective tissues.
The stimulation of these vital and skin-building substances results in the significant improvement of skin tone and texture. Profhilo® is not a traditional dermal filler and will not build volume, but in a course of 2 treatments, can significantly improve the signs of ageing that most of us will notice with time. Profhilo® can be used as a stand-alone treatment or can complement other aesthetic treatments such as wrinkle-smoothing injections and dermal fillers.
Are there any contraindications to Profhilo®?
As with any injectable procedure there are minor risks which include bruising, swelling, infection, allergic reaction, vascular compromise and nerve damage. Contraindications include bleeding disorders, immune compromised disorders and anyone who has unrealistic expectations from any cosmetic procedure.
Which areas can Profhilo® treat?
- Any area which shows visible signs of ageing
When will I see the results from Profhilo®?
Results can be seen immediately after the first treatment. However, the best results are visible around 4 weeks after the second treatment. After 8 weeks, your skin will appear more hydrated, revitalised, healthy, glowing and youthful.
You should enjoy more hydrated and glowing skin for up to six months following your initial treatment with Profhilo®, however, results vary from patient to patient. Lifestyle and environmental factors can have a dramatic effect on your skin and the results from Profhilo®. If you smoke, drink a lot of alcohol and expose your skin to UV rays without sun protection, you may find that you need to return for another treatment sooner than expected.
2 treatments are advised at 1 month apart. Those with more advanced signs of ageing may be advised to have a further 1 or 2 treatments at 6 months after the initial treatment.
If you are experiencing the initial or more advanced signs of facial ageing and are experiencing lines, wrinkles, sagging or lax skin, Profhilo® can offer you significant results without the use of traditional dermal fillers or invasive surgery.
Profhilo® is administered via a small needle at 5 key points around the treatment area. It is a fairly straightforward procedure and you will not need any pre-numbing or anaesthetic substances. A course of 2 treatments, a month apart is recommended and for those with more advanced signs of ageing, a 3rd and potentially a 4th treatment may be advised. After your treatment, you will be given some aftercare advice and can leave the clinic to continue your daily activities, though it is advisable to rest for a few hours following the treatment and not undergo strenuous exercise or to have any hot steam treatments, saunas or hot baths. It’s important to keep the skin clean afterwards, so avoiding makeup for 24 hours is also advisable.
Anaesthetic is not used for a Profhilo® as it is not generally required. The injections may sting briefly and you may experience a mild discomfort, but this is normal and will subside. After your treatment you may experience some tenderness for around 24 to 72 hours.
Profhilo® is aimed at those patients who have visible signs of ageing skin. Therefore, it is most commonly used for those who are aged between 30 and 60. However, our younger patients also find that Profhilo® offers a preventative effect. Prior to any treatment taking place, here at Pure Perfection Clinic, we ask that you attend a no obligation consultation, so that we can discuss your general skin concerns, check your medical history and ensure that the treatment will be both suitable and safe for you to undergo
