Everybody ages, but not everybody has to look older. As time takes its toll on our skin, fine lines begin to appear, and skin can become dull and dry out. If you want to achieve smoother, line-free skin without the use of Botox or dermal fillers, a Profhilo Skin Booster treatment may be exactly what you have been looking for.
Profhilo is a hyaluronic acid based technology that uses dual action treatment, boosting skin hydration while remodelling the skin. Hyaluronic acid is injected into the skin, where it diffuses within the tissue, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. The injected substance smoothes the skin and it becomes brighter and hydrated. Even after the hyaluronic acid is absorbed, collagen and elastin continue to regenerate.
At Harpenden Skin Clinic, our skincare professionals are trained in the latest Profhilo techniques. Injection sites are carefully chosen, meaning the whole face can be treated with only five injections per side.
People report some discomfort as the treatment takes place; however, this depends on the area being treated and individual differences in pain tolerance. Numbing cream is applied before the injections are given to reduce discomfort.
This depends on the severity of the fine lines and the area being treated. In most cases, two treatments are recommended at least one month apart. To maintain the results, patients may elect to repeat the treatment at 6-12 month intervals.
Redness, swelling, itchiness and tenderness at the injection sites can occur, but the effects should subside within the first 24 hours.
Skin appears smoother and hydrated immediately. As collagen and elastin levels increase, fine lines are reduced. This takes time, meaning the full effect of the treatment will not be seen until a few weeks after the final treatment.
