Your Questions Answered – Profhilo Body

What Is Profhilo Body?

Profhilo Body is the ONLY injectable treatment on the market specifically designed for the treatment of body laxity and particularly recommended for the inner upper arms (raisin skin) and abdomen. Ever since the original Profhilo came out I had patients asking for Profhilo treatments that extend beyond the face – these have included the neck, decolletage, hands and above the knees.

It is one of the original and most industry approved brands of liquid injectable skin booster.  It is both preventative and corrective in combating the signs of ageing.

How Does Profhilo Body Work?

Profhilo Body remodels the tissue and improves skin laxity by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.  It has low molecular weight hyaluronic acid (L-HA) that hydrates and regenerates the skin and high molecular weight (H-HA) which helps reduce sagging by providing a lifting effect.

What Are The Benefits of Profhilo Body?

*Improves skin elasticity

*Re-invigorates crepey skin

*Deeply moisturises the skin

*Minimises the appearance of lines and wrinkles

*Reduces skin ageing

What areas can it treat?

The injectable is specifically designed to treat the Upper Arms (raisin skin), Abdomen, Inner Thighs and Knees.

Is Profhilo Body Safe?

Yes. It consists of stabilised hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the body. It does not have any chemical cross -linking agents, which allows for a safer treatment with little to no side effects.

Does The Procedure Hurt?

Most patients do not feel any major discomfort, as the procedure is quick and the needle is very fine.  Topical numbing cream can be used to improve comfort.

How Long Does The Procedure Take?

The treatment is quick. It can be done in 30 minutes, but depends on the size of the treatment area and the amount of injectable used.

Are There Any Side Effects?

As with any injectables, you may experience mild swelling, redness or bruising at the treatment site. This is temporary and normally resolves between 2-3 days after the procedure.

Is There Any Downtime?

There is minimal to no downtime after the procedure. Do not touch or massage the treatment area and avoid strenuous exercise following the treatment, as well as saunas and steam rooms for 24-48 hours.

How Many Treatments Do I Need?

The initial protocol is 2-3 sessions spaced one month apart. This may be modified depending on the needs of the patient.

What Results Can I Expect?

Profhilo Body delivers gradual and natural looking results. It treats the skin from the inside out, triggering the body’s natural regeneration cycle and rejuvenating the skin cells.

What Is The Profhilo Body Kit?

Following the treatment, you will receive a Profhilo Body Kit which includes a Body Patch to soothe and moisture the skin and reduce redness and Profhilo Body Cream applied at home to maintain the results and restore tone and elasticity while also deeply moisturising the skin.
