Profhilo® Introduction

This is a fantastic treatment available at The Grove Skin & Laser Clinic Swansea with excellent results. The treatment is ideal for those looking to improve skin tone, texture, hydration & radiance (particularly on the Face and/or neck).  After two treatments you can benefit from increased firmness and elasticity for healthier, softer glowing skin.

Profhilo treatment tightens skin from within, it firms up sagging and crepey skin, it is a quick, safe and effective anti-aging treatment and is FDA approved for treating skin laxity.

Profhilo injections contain hyaluronic acid the same as in dermal fillers but with the difference being that profhilo stimulates the body’s own collagen and elastin, remodelling the skin giving deep, long lasting moisture instead of re-volumising  like traditional dermal fillers.

Since it’s launch in 2015 profhilo had won a number of industry awards for its innovation and effective results.

Profhilo® Treatment Process

After deciding Profhilo® treatment is the right option for you a 30 minute appointment will be booked. 

No cream is needed for Profhilo®, it’s a little stingy when the liquid is injected but only lasts a few seconds.

Profhilo® is injected in a specific pattern and takes around 15 minutes to perform.

It’s important you don’t touch or massage the area, there will be small blebs on the skin for anything from 20 minutes to a couple of hours. 

The treatment protocol is 2 sessions 4-6 weeks apart, occasionally a third session is needed, depending on degree of damage. A maintenance session is then suggested every 3-6 months.

( Q )
What Is The Difference Between Profhilo® And Dermal Filler?

How Long Does The Treatment Take?

We allow 30 minutes for the treatment, although the process itself only takes around 15 minutes.
