The hands of time take their toll on all of us, and we might start to find that expensive face creams, serums and even treatments like Botox aren’t targeting our needs for a more glowing complexion. Botox and dermal fillers are super as treatments to combat expression lines and re-sculpt certain facial features, but when we want to supercharge the skin with collagen building ingredients for more resilience and a ‘plumper’ complexion, it may be time to consider something new. The skin loses substances such as elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid (HA) from our early 20s onwards. However, there is hope in the form of a new generation of ‘injectable skincare’, available from Dr Anita Dhunna at her Harley Street, Hertfordshire and Essex clinics. This revolutionary and highly-replenishing treatment is called Profhilo®.
What is Profhilo®?
Contrary to the belief of those who misunderstand it, Profhilo® is not a dermal filler, but a bio-remodelling substance which helps the skin repair itself. It is the very first BDDE-free, stabilised HA-based injectable product and superb for treating conditions such as skin laxity and signs of ageing like dehydration, fine and deeper lines and wrinkles. Dr Anita Dhunna will assess your entire facial anatomy as a whole and recommend a bespoke treatment plan, based on your individual requirements in a preliminary consultation, prior to any treatment taking place, so you know in advance that Profhilo® will benefit you.
Profhilo® can effectively treat the skin in the following areas:
Dr Anita Dhunna uses a 5-point BAP technique, injecting in to specific areas of the face. This minimises risk and maximises the dispersion of the Profhilo® product into the areas which most need it. Unlike traditional thick or cross-linked dermal fillers which usually require just one treatment for optimum results, a treatment with Profhilo® consists of 2 treatment sessions, 4 weeks apart. After 8 weeks after the initial session, Dr Anita Dhunna will assess your results and advise whether a third treatment may be necessary. This is more for cases of advance ageing and where there is a requirement for a more intensive treatment.
Profhilo® is an extremely effective non-surgical face lifting treatment, highly-effective for reducing wrinkles, increasing the skin’s firmness and a ‘super’ hydrator for very dehydrated and lacklustre skin, which is losing bounce and plumpness. This treatment will not augment or change the shape of your facial features, like traditional dermal fillers; rather it will encourage your skin’s natural healing responses to release its natural beauty from within. Profhilo® ‘communicates’ with the skin on a cellular level to help it to heal and repair itself. So, it’s the perfect option if you don’t require facial augmentation or reconstruction, but want your skin to glow.
Can Profhilo® be used with Botox™ and dermal fillers?
Profhilo® can indeed be used with treatments, such as dermal fillers, Botox and thread lifting and may be offered as the first step to achieving healthier skin, before such treatments are considered. The results can be seen after a matter of 8 weeks or so, and can last anything up to 12 months.
Who can administer Profhilo®?
Like all injectable treatments, Profhilo® should only be administered by a highly-skilled and fully-trained medical professional such as Dr Anita Dhunna to ensure that you are in the safest of hands when you undergo a treatment which requires the use of a needle.
