As we age, our bodies begin to stop producing as much collagen and elastin. Skin laxity is something everyone will face at some point in their life due to the natural ageing process. Besides ageing, there are other factors that can play a part in skin laxity, such as genetics, diet, lifestyle, sun exposure, stress and smoking. Profhilo® Body has been designed for tissue remodelling and the improvement of loose skin on body areas such as inner arms, abdomen, hands, knees and chest.
What is Profhilo®?
Profhilo® is a highly purified injectable hyaluronic acid skin booster especially designed to hydrate the skin from inside, like an internal moisturiser, and stimulate the production of elastin and collagen.
What is Profhilo® Body?
Profhilo® Body is made of the same high purity hyaluronic acid as the facial product. It is the only injectable treatment specifically indicated for treating skin laxity on body areas as opposed to the face. Profhilo® Body contains one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid and delivers a prolonged effect with improvements in skin texture, elasticity and hydration with an immediate tightening effect.
Who is a good candidate for Profhilo® Body?
This treatment is aimed at patients who have visible signs of ageing and loose skin on the body. It is an ideal treatment for those looking to improve elasticity and tighten areas such as the arms, thighs and abdomen naturally and non-invasively, with zero downtime.
Is Profhilo® treatment safe?
Profhilo® was launched in February 2015 and is used by practitioner’s worldwide. Over 150,000 patients have been treated so far with no adverse reactions reported. From a safety perspective, Profhilo® is highly biocompatible because it is made from pure, natural hyaluronic acid and is stabilised without the addition of chemical cross-linking agents which reduces the risk of adverse reactions.
How many treatments will I need?
For best results, we recommend two sets of injections, between 4-6 weeks apart.
Does this treatment hurt?
Profhilo® Body is injected using very fine needles and placed just under the skin. The treatment is usually painless, with patients reporting only very mild discomfort.
*Assuming no bruising.
