WHO IS THE TREATMENT SUITABLE FOR?
Profhilo is an anti-ageing hydration treatment that helps boost hydration beneath the skin's surface and kickstart the natural production of collagen and elastin. It is suitable for anyone who would benefit from increased hydration, more collagen, or elastin. Typically clients are aged 30-55 and want to look younger and for their skin on their face, neck, hand, or arms to look better.
WHAT AREAS ARE TREATED WITH PROFHILO?
• Profhilo is a rejuvenating treatment that can smooth fine lines, wrinkles, skin crepeiness and improve skin texture in the following areas:
• Arms (bingo-wings)
• Smokers lines and fine lines around the mouth
• Under-eye wrinkles
• Fine lines around the eyes
• Wrinkly cheeks
• Crepey hands
• Abdomen (stomach)
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
Your skin will look better hydrated almost immediately after treatment. The client won't see the collagen elastin's benefit until at least six weeks after your first treatment. The best results will appear 4-6 weeks after your second treatment.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
To achieve the results, you will need 2 Profhilo treatments four weeks apart initially and then a top-up at six months to maintain the effect.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Profhilo was launched in Italy in February 2015, and it's been in use worldwide ever since. Over 300,000 patients have been treated so far, with no adverse reactions reported. Side effects (e.g., redness, pain, swelling) are mild and temporary. From a safety perspective, it is made from ultra-pure, natural hyaluronic acid and stabilised without chemical cross-linking agents; this reduces the risk of adverse reactions, so the downtime is minimal.
The client can only undertake injectable procedures like Profhilo after you attend a face-to-face consultation with one of our doctors, who will discuss a full list of cautions and contraindications.

• No makeup for 6 hours after treatment
