PROFHILO® FOR SKIN REJUVENATION AND ANTI-AGEING
Our injectables clinic is hosted by renowned aesthetic practitioner Dr Charlotte D'Souza.
Originally qualifying as a doctor in 2010, Dr D'Souza now works solely in Aesthetic Medicine and is a Level 7 Postgraduate in Injectables. Trained at the Harley Academy in London, Dr D'Souza has undertaken both basic and advanced training in botulinum toxins, dermal fillers, Profhilo® skin-remodelling, Obagi peels and Aqualyx® fat-dissolving injections.
Her background as a doctor means she understands the detailed anatomy of the face and it is this, coupled with her gentle and detailed approach, that has earned D'Souza a coveted reputation and loyal following.
What is Profhilo®?
Profhilo® is an ultra-pure injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) based product for treating skin laxity. It has one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market, boosting and hydrating the skin, remodelling the skin and improving sagging tissues. It works effectively on its own, or as a complementary treatment alongside other aesthetic procedures such as anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers.
Profhilo® works by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin by slowly releasing HA. Collagen and elastin boost the appearance of skin tone and quality, as well as having a tightening and lifting effect on the tissue. It helps to minimise the signs of ageing by nourishing skin cells, restoring firmness, and reducing crêpey skin by hydrating it from the inside out. It can be used in the face, neck and décolletage. For younger people with less volume loss and minimal signs of ageing, Profhilo® is a beautiful preventative treatment. For older people with more visible signs of ageing, Profhilo® strengthens the body’s collagen and elastin, and increases the skin’s hydration. Fillers are then perfectly placed to replace significant volume loss or deep folds. In such cases, Profhilo® is the scaffolding for fillers to be based on, with fewer filler treatments required to achieve the desired effect.
A treatment course of Profhilo® involves two injectable treatments, four weeks apart. There are 5 injections on either side of the face at points specifically chosen to target problematic areas, lower the possibility of bruising and swelling, reduce the number of treatments needed, and minimise the pain caused.
There is a gradual increase in skin hydration, and improvement in fine lines and tightness of the skin. After about 8 weeks there is maximal lift, tightening, hydration, and youthfulness. There is improved firmness, elasticity and overall quality of the skin. HA is naturally degraded by the body so effects are temporary, with results lasting for about six months, sometimes longer. Further treatment consists of either one or two sessions, 4 weeks apart, to maintain the improvements seen with Profhilo®.
