Profhilo Exeter is a ‘beneath the skin’ hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment
The first of its kind, Profhilo Exeter is a ‘beneath the skin’ hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment. It is made with the patented NAHYCO® technology. This results in a unique hyaluronic acid injectable gel. The formula has a prolonged stimulating activity on the dermal cells. When injected into skin, Profhilo stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity. Therefore it improves and restores firmness of the skin.
How does Profhilo work
Ultra-pure hyaluronic acid is precisely injected into the area being treated. Unlike wrinkle reducing and dermal filler treatments, Profhilo attracts water in the deeper layers of the skin. It does this by stimulating the collagen and elastin from the skin.
This is a stabilised product, so the activity on dermal cells will last longer than that of a non-stabilised gel. During this time, the stimulation of four different types of collagen and elastin takes place by slow release of hyaluronic acid.
The stimulation results in significant tissue improvement. Therefore we cannot say that Profhilo is a skin booster as it also has a significant tightening / lifting effect on the tissue.
Profhilo is an Ultra-pure hyaluronic acid.
We use Profhilo injections in very small amounts directly into the skin. Profhilo not only boosts and hydrates the skin, but also remodels ageing and sagging tissue.
The standard protocol is 2-3 sessions at one month apart. Usually, you will see a real difference after the first session.
The effects often last up to 4 months. If you decide to stop treatment, any permanent lines and wrinkles will gradually return.
It is very rare to be painful. Most patients experience a feeling of slight discomfort if all during the treatment itself but that’s all. Rest assure we will talk through what to expect before your first injection. So we will fully prepare you prior to treatment.
With Profhilo injections at worst you will have a little redness which will subside after a few hours.
