You can expect to see improved skin firmness, tone and youthful-looking elasticity lasting for up to half a year. Please note that your lifestyle. age and skin condition prior to treatment being administered all influence how long the rewarding effects of Profhilo last.
Before treatment: The therapist will carry out an in-depth and confidential consultation with you to gain a full picture of your medical history and lifestyle, taking into account any information that may impact on the treatment and its effects. No allergy test is required before having Profhilo treatments.
During treatment: Profhilo comes in the form of 64mg of hyaluronic acid in a 2ml pre-filled syringe. It is usually applied to areas of the skin that are lax or loose such as the jowls and cheeks, though everyone is unique and your therapist will treat you as such, treating the areas on your body and skin that need attention. The hyaluronic acid in the treatment, which has been praised for its safe application capabilities, breaks down in the skin and leaves no trace. Profhilo is renowned for its safety aspect, plus its spreadability and ability to stay together. These beneficial abilities often make it the ideal solution for areas of skin that are usually regarded as tricky to treat with traditional injectable products, for example, the forehead, temples, neck, hands and inner arms. Profhilo is administered using the BAP (Bio Aesthetic Points) method which is considered the prime way to apply Profhilo to five specific points on the face.
After treatment: Your ANP Skin Clinic therapist will provide you with professional advice on any follow-up steps you need to take to preserve the effects of Profhilo.
