What effects can I expect?
Profhilo® is a hyaluronic acid based injectable which falls into the category of biostimulators. Its aim is not to give volume or projection but to act on the cellular level to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin within the skin to increase its firmness and luminosity, while reducing laxity associated with aging and sun damage - we call this action ''bioremodelling'', the latest trend in skin rejuvenation. It has been hailed as ''an injectable moisturiser'' due to ultra-hydrating effect on the skin. Read our post dedicated to Profhilo® by clicking here to find out if Profhilo® is worth the money.

What does the procedure involve?
Profhilo® involves just five injection points on each side of the face. Before the procedure, the doctor will numb these points with an anaesthetic cream to make the treatment at comfortable as possible. All in all, the actual injection part takes about 10 minutes, making Profhilo® a perfect ''lunch-break procedure''. Immediately after the treatment, the points of injection will be slightly raised. This will resolve within 48 hours as the product spreads under the skin. Over the next few weeks, the hyaluronic acid chains will stimulate your own cells to produce more collagen and elastin resulting in an improvement in skin texture, increase in firmness and a higher level of hydration. It is recommended to perform two sessions, a month apart, to achieve the best results and to repeat the treatment every 3-6 months as prevention and maintenance. Increased hydration can be seen within a few days after treatment, while the full results of its effect on collagen and elastic induction can best be observed 4 weeks after the second session.
