Why do I love it?
As I have moved into my 30's, my priorities with my treatments and skincare have changed. I still love my toxins for smoothening out muscle movement that creates fine lines and wrinkles and my fillers for subtle lip augmentation or tear trough filler. Profhilo does not replace these treatments; however, it works as an adjunctive treatment. As my skin and face changes with age, I have realised the importance of skin quality and texture. Perhaps it's one of those things you only notice once it's starting to go and take for granted when younger. Think of your skin as the most fundamental aspect of your facial aesthetics; good texture creates a glowy appearance, minimal laxity prevents sagging and folds and means dermal fillers can hold and lift with more effect. I love this treatment for the boost and radiance it's given my skin.
How does it work, and what is bio-remodelling?
Injectable hyaluronic acids have a more significant benefit than those that are delivered in serum form as they provide a greater concentration of hyaluronic acid to the skin's dermis. Profhilo has an incredibly high concentration of pure form synthetic hyaluronic acid which can be targeted, by injection, into the upper layers of the skin using a small needle. Due to its runny texture, once injected, the hyaluronic acid spreads throughout the face, neck or hands. It attracts water to it, helping the skin to look younger and plumper. It triggers the skin to create new collagen and elastin by the process of bio-remodelling assisting the skin to combat signs of ageing such as fine lines, dullness and crepiness.
