What is Profhilo?
Where can the treatment be performed in Algarve?
Profhilo is a safe and efficient Hyaluronic Acid gel used in skin remodeling.
It is an injectable aesthetic filler that, despite being relatively recent, has been widely recognized by the aesthetic industry with the attribution of numerous innovation awards in skin remodeling, as it acts by interacting with the body’s receptors, stimulating collagen and ensuring a very natural appearance.
One of the big skincare trends of 2022, Profhilo is available at Atelier do Sorriso Almancil Clinic, Faro, in the heart of Algarve, Portugal.
Does Profhilo work? Why is it different?
Profhilo is a Hyaluronic Acid gel, safe and efficient in skin remodeling, which, unlike many other fillers, did not require the introduction of a chemical agent to promote cross-linking (stabilization). From a safety perspective, this is an exceptional and truly innovative plus in the manufacturing of HA.
Essentially, Profhilo offers benefits in both the dermal filler area and in skin rejuvenation treatments.
Profhilo: Benefits of the Aesthetic Treatment
Profhilo is a quick and relatively painless aesthetic treatment. Containing one of the highest concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid available in aesthetic treatments, Profhilo acts as a high-performance moisturizer that spreads and integrates evenly into the skin, without forming nodules.
Its structure allows it to reach a broader area, boosting hydration and smoothing the skin’s appearance, while also stimulating the production of new collagen in the skin through the slow release of hyaluronic acid.
How is the Profhilo treatment performed? How long does the consultation last?
The Profhilo Treatment Protocol:
The Hyaluronic Acid gel is injected under the skin using very fine needles, at specific points determined by a standard protocol to ensure the procedure’s efficacy and safety.
Within about 15 minutes of consultation, the treatment can be completed, and the patient is free to leave.
Profhilo will remain in your skin for about 28 days, during which the stimulation of 4 different types of collagen and elastin will take place, through the slow release of hyaluronic acid.
The post-treatment result: skin that’s firmer, more hydrated, and radiant! Check out the before and after further below.
How long does it last? When will I see the results?
- ✅ Typically, results start to become noticeable after the first session, but continued improvement can be observed for months following the treatment as collagen production is stimulated.
- ✅ Usually, two initial sessions are recommended with a month’s gap between them. However, maintenance sessions might be required to sustain the results over time.
- ✅ The treatment results last up to six months.
