For many years, Hyaluronic Acid (HA) has been a big buzz term in skincare and certainly in anti-ageing too. And, with good reason. It's a substance that naturally occurs in the human body (especially the eyes and joints); when HA is used in skincare, it's incredibly solution-based. Think, the alleviation of dry skin (HA is well known for its hydrating properties), the reduction of the look of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as speeding up wound healing. So, if it's able to do all of that topically when formulated into a cream, imagine what it could achieve when injected into the upper layers of the skin?
Meet Profhilo® Bio-Remodelling
Skin Renewal's aesthetic medical team have years of experience and skill with injectable procedures. So the exciting introduction of Profhilo® Bio-Remodelling means cutting-edge innovation performed by doctors with the highest expertise. An injectable treatment specifically formulated for those lacking firmness and elasticity in their skins. Profhilo® is a powerful shot – imagine the highest concentration of HA available on the market – targeted at remodelling and shaping the face. Curious? Read on.
What are the benefits?
Your skin's natural rejuvenation processes get set in motion with Profhilo®. In other words, unlike dermal fillers (that plump and fill), this treatment provides a slow release of the ingredient Hyaluronic Acid that's going to kickstart all the good stuff. HA will stimulate collagen and elastin production (collagen gives skin its firmness while elastin keeps skin tight), so you'll see better skin tone, texture, hydration, and less noticeable fine lines. In addition, it's able to remodel skin that's laxed (with a crepe-like look), and you'll still be able to have other injectables such as Botox ®, and Dermal Fillers performed.
Think of it this way: Profhilo® is your full-face overhaul for outstanding skin rejuvenation and renewed strength, and your other non-invasive procedures (like Botox ® and Dermal Fillers) are targeted treatments for direct concerns.
Further to the above, each Profhilo® pack comes with a free antioxidant cream for maintaining cellular vitality. It is a natural moisturiser that augments the process, consisting of Hyaluronic Acid complex and natural salvia.
How does it work?
This ingredient gets injected into the upper layers of the skin with a small, fine needle. With its highly fluid consistency, the HA used in our Profhilo® treatments can disperse effortlessly into skin, meaning proper penetration so that it creates a "scaffold" for the surrounding tissues. Your complexion will then reap the rewards of hydration as well as skin sculpting, thanks to bio re-modelling. Smart Stat: This phenomenon is a new category into the injectable market, making the treatment the latest in skin rejuvenating innovation of its kind - - Skin Renewal is the first to launch Profhilo® in South Africa.
When will I see results?
We know instant gratification is a concept most of us can't live without, but we encourage you to wait just 3 to 5 days to uncover the magic. The effects of your treatment will take place over this short period, and with the suggested 2 sessions (spaced 4 weeks apart), you'll see maximum benefits.
To maintain results, aim for a course of 2 treatments every 6 months. In terms of needing any downtime, this is most definitely a "return-to-work" immediately scenario – although we know for many it's just simply back to #WFH and Zooming. So that'll be perfectly fine too.
Excited? Us too!
Ultimately, Profhilo® Bio-Remodelling is the answer for skin that's sagging and needs the sublime boosting effect of ultra-hydrating HA. Whether your facial skin requires improved tone, texture, moisture and the smoothing out of fine lines or other areas of your body (the décolletage, hands, arms and knees), this powerful and effective solution means low to medium risks or complications. It's just 30 minutes of procedure time, zero anaesthetic and no recovery time.
What awaits is healthier, glowing skin with a more refined texture and boosted firmness and elasticity.
Happy days – and great results!
