Are you ready for the Profhilo Plump?

Dull, dry, lax skin that just looks a bit "meh"?

If this sounds familiar, read on.

In the quest for plump glowy skin, Profhilo® has emerged as a revolutionary skinboosting solution since its UK launch in 2016. This injectable treatment is designed to address the common signs of aging that become more apparent after the age of 30.

Profhilo® is not about changing the shape your face but rather providing a refreshed, plumped, and natural look that rejuvenates your skin's lost lustre. It's a superb skinbooster.

How does Profhilo® work?

Profhilo® stands out as an injectable skin treatment made from highly concentrated and purified hyaluronic acid (HA). Unlike traditional hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, Profhilo® has a much runnier consistency, allowing it to spread within a 2cm radius of the injection site. Administered through 10 specific points on the face known as the Bio Aesthetic Points (BAP), Profhilo® stimulates collagen and elastin synthesis, resulting in deep hydration and a noticeable improvement in skin texture.

Profhilo® also acts as a ‘bio-remodeller’. It gets broken down after around 28 days, but prior to breaking down, it stimulates significant collagen and elastin synthesis, resulting in plumper, tighter, smoother, more supple skin. So it's essentially injectable skincare.

What can Profhilo be used to treat?

While primarily used to treat the face, Profhilo® extends its skinboosting benefits to rejuvenate the neck, décolletage, hands, arms, and even knees. This versatility makes it an excellent choice for those seeking to imporve skin quality across multiple areas.

And who can have Profhilo®?

Profhilo® is perfect for adults experiencing the early signs of ageing - slight skin sagging, loss of volume, textural concenrs and a general dulling of the skin. It's a go-to option for those seeking a natural and subtle rejuvenation without changing the shape of their face.

If your concerns are pigmentation, sundamage or significant sagging, this isn't the treatment for you. Peels, polynucleotides, LED facials or fillers might be a better fit. If you need a hand figuring out the best options, why not book a consultation with a Glowday Pro?

Give me the low down...what happens during a Profhilo® appointment?

Firstly, it's crucial you visit a healthcare practitioner who has been appropriately trained.

Preparation for a Profhilo® skinbooster treatment is straightforward - avoid NSAIDS, fish oils, and alcohol before the treatment.

The treatment itself involves two sessions spaced four weeks apart, with optimal results visible about four weeks after the second sitting.

During your treatment, your practitioner will mark up the BAP points on your face, they may apply numbing cream to these points, and will then inject small amounts of Profhilo® into each of the points. This will leave small blebs (bumps of Profhilo® under your skin) under the skin that look a bit like insect bites. You may get slight bruising and pin-pricks of blood.

After your treatment, stay hydrated and avoid sun exposure, alcohol, and cigarettes. Don't put makeup on - particularly with dirty brushes 🤮 - for 24 hours. And don't rub or massage the blebs . These will disappear within 24-36 hours.

Profhilo® is not a "one-and-done" treatment. Regular maintenance is recommended every four to six months to preserve the youthful effects of Profhilo®.

It sounds too good to be true? What's the catch?

Well, it's not suitable for everyone...those with blood disorders, compromised immune systems, active skin infections, or a hyaluronic acid allergy should avoid Profhilo® skinboosters. Pregnant or breastfeeding women are also advised against this treatment.

It's also important that you're realistic about the results you can expect. Profhilo® is not a facelift in a bottle. It's not going to undo years of sundamage and skin neglect.

It's also not cheap. While the price tag may vary, expect to pay between £250 and £400 per Profhilo® treatment. And since the initial treatment is 2 sessions, followed by sessions every 4-6 months, you can expect to invest £1250 in treatments over the course of the year if you're SERIOUS about collagen banking and maintaining skin health. Alternatively, it's a perfect treatment before an even to get your skin in tip-top shape with no downtime.

Profhilo® is great for those looking for an instant skinboost or those looking to invest in long term collagen banking.

With it's minimal downtime and natural-looking results, Profhilo® offers a solution to those wanting plump, hydrated glowy skin FAST!
