Profhilo is a pure Hyaluronic Gel injection which stimulates 4 different types of collagen and elastin. The results last up to 6-9 months.

HA is hydrophilic, which means it draws and holds water from your body, so Profhilo acts as a hydrator rather than a filler. This effect takes place within 3-5 days of treatment.

Two treatments are recommended to get maximum results. The treatments are spaced 4-5 weeks apart. The maximum effect of Profhilo is usually seen 2 months after the second treatment.

WHAT DOES PROFHILO INVOLVE?

PROFHILO comes in a 2 ml syringe, the treatment takes approximately 20 minutes.

FOR FACE TREATMENTS – one ml is injected into 5 injection points on each side of your face. Profhilo is injected just below the skin’s surface. After injection it disperses quickly beneath the skin to improve hydration.

Profhilo is absorbed within a 2 cm radius of its injection site. There is no bruising, swelling or downtime.

You may have some redness at the injection sites for a few hours.

FOR NECK TREATMENTS-two mls are injected into your neck, targeting the areas where the skin is the thinnest and where you have the most lines.

Treatment takes 20 minutes. Allow 24 hours downtime for neck treatments.

Because your neck skin is so thin & delicate- you will have raised areas at each injection site on your neck. This is actually the Profhilo starting its work. It spreads out like honey under your skin over a few hours and the marks will be gone overnight.

You might get a tiny bruise at one or two of the injection sites which can be easily covered with concealer.

How long will it last?

The results should last up to 6-12 months depending on your metabolism.

A single course of PROFHILO  involves 2 injectable treatments 4 weeks apart, after which you can expect to see an intense hydration. It makes the skin glow, fine lines can disappear and you’ll notice smoother, tighter skin.

Courses of two treatments can be repeated every six months or as needed to maintain the results.

*Patients with more mature dry skin will need 3 or more treatments for the results they desire

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

It is recommended to have 2 sessions (one month apart) to achieve the maximum results. However, if the skin problems are severe, the third session could be done 1 month after the second session.

To maintain the results, one Profhilo treatment session is advised every 6 months.

 

The first two Profhilo treatments will stimulate your natural collagen and elastin production. Meaning that the rejuvenating effects of treatment will continue even after Profhilo has been naturally broken down.

After initial first and second treatments, a Profhilo treatment every six months should be sufficient to maintain the benefits.

Profhilo® is suitable for both men and women with mild to moderate signs of aging skin.

IF YOU DEVELOP SYMPTOMS OF A VASCULAR OCCLUSION SUCH AS SEVERE OR DULL PAIN AROUND THE EYE, FACE, LIPS OR ANY PLACE THAT THE PROFHILO HAS BEEN INJECTED, ANY WEAKNESS OF THE EYE OR VISON DISRUPTION OR DARK DISCOLOURATION OF SKIN WITH PROLONGED BLANCHING OR MOTTLING OF THE SKIN WITHIN THE FIRST 24 HOURS OF TREATMENT THEN PLEASE CONTACT DIAMOND BEAUTY IMMEDIATELY.

ALTHOUGH THE RISK OF VASCULAR OCCLUSION IS VERY RARE, IT REQUIRES URGENT ASSESSMENT AND TREATMENT.

What to EXPECT after your treatment

There might be redness, swelling or tenderness in the treated area. This is a normal result of the injections and will generally disappear within a few days, if it’s still present after 72 hours or is worsening please contact Diamond Beauty Clinic.

In order to reduce bruising, it is important to adhere to the aftercare regime. Please avoid any medications such as Ibuprofen, Naproxen or Diclofenac, Fish Oils, Omega 3 Fatty Acid, Garlic, High Dose Vitamin E, Gingko Biloba, St. John’s Wort and Ginseng for the week prior and week following a treatment unless medically necessary or after discussion your Diamond Beauty specialist.

Alcohol increases the time the blood takes to clot which increases the risk of bruising, please avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours prior to treatment and at least 24 hours after your treatment (abstain from alcohol for 7 days prior and 7 days post treatment for optimal results).

There is research that suggests that taking arnica tablets for 7 days prior to your treatment can reduce the likelihood of bruising, tablets can be purchased from any herbal food shop. 

If you’re having your face treated with Profhilo, all make up will need to be removed prior to the treatment, so please come ‘fresh faced’ if possible.

IMMEDIATE after care – What to do at home

You can apply a cool compress to the treatment area (do not apply ice directly to the skin) for 10 minutes every half an hour on the day of treatment if needed.

Avoid any heat inducing activities for 24 hours such as strenuous exercise, spas, saunas and hot showers as it increases the likelihood of bruising.

Avoid facials, waxing, chemical peels, skin needling, microdermabrasion, IPL or laser treatments to the area of treatment for 2 weeks after treatment. 

The product is injected in small ‘deposits’, you may be able to see them initially, but they settle usually within hours. It may be possible to feel the product where it has been injected under the skin. Don’t worry this will settle, there is no need to massage.

If you’ve had Profhilo to your face, make-up should not be worn for 12 hours.
