Profhilo In Benfleet

Profhilo treatments in Benfleet, Essex at Monika Advanced Aesthetics. As we get older, the skin can become lax, dry and dehydrated and this isn’t just the skin on our faces. Other areas which succumb to ageing can include the neck and the decolletage. No matter how many creams we apply, these areas can really start to struggle, due to the loss of substances in the skin, such as collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.

Profhilo is a brand name for a type of injectable hyaluronic acid gel used for cosmetic purposes. It is specifically designed to provide hydration and elasticity to the skin, making it look smoother, firmer, and more youthful. Profhilo is often used for facial rejuvenation, and it is injected directly into the skin using a small needle.

Unlike some other dermal fillers, Profhilo is not designed to add volume to the face. Instead, it works by stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, which are the proteins that keep the skin looking plump and firm. This makes Profhilo a popular option for people who want to improve the overall quality of their skin without adding extra volume or changing the shape of their face.

Like other injectables, Profhilo is a relatively easy treatment that takes only about 15 minutes.

Profhilo is always injected in a standard pattern of 10 injection points, often referred to as bio-aesthetic points (BAP). After each injection, you can expect a stinging sensation for up to 90 seconds as the substance gets situated in the skin.

The treatment is considered relatively painless, and most people experience little to no discomfort during the injection process.

How many treatments of Profhilo will I need?

Initially, Profhilo is delivered in 2 treatments, within one month to 6 weeks of each other, as a booster dose is required to start the skin working to replenish itself. You should then see significant results at around a month after the second treatment, though many patients see results much faster. Some patients who are experiencing significant skin ageing, may require a third treatment, but this will be discussed with you, in your pre-treatment consultation.
