What is Prohfilo and how can it help?
With so many wonderful rejuvenating cosmetic treatments to choose from, it can be difficult to know which one will be right for you. New treatments are emerging all the time, with added benefits and the ability to achieve different types of results – so staying on top of these can help.
Prohfilo is a relatively new product on the market, but its results can be truly remarkable and long-lasting.
In this post I’ll share more about what Prohfilo is, and how it can help you to achieve a plumper, lifted, more youthful appearance.
What is Prohfilo?
Prohfilo is the brand name of a specialist type of injectable skin remodelling treatment, which works in a similar way to fillers to restore lost volume and fullness, sculpting and defining the face. Prohfilo differs from fillers in that it also rejuvenates the skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin for improved hydration, even skin tone and reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Prohfilo contains one of the highest concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid available, making it the perfect choice for clients with skin lacking volume and elasticity.
How does Prohfilo work?
You may already know that a number of other dermal fillers are also made of hyaluronic acid – but the density and consistency alters depending on the product and what it is used for. Hyaluronic Acid is a master hydrator, drawing and holding water from the body to restore lost volume. Prohfilo acts more like a hydrator than a filler, although it satisfies both functions – transforming dull, tired-looking skin with a firm, luminous glow.
A Prohfilo treatment should always be personalised to your specific concerns and needs. We’ll have a thorough discussion first to determine which areas you would like to concentrate on the most, we’ll then map out a specific plan of injection sites tailored to you.
How long will Prohfilo take to work?
Results can be seen immediately – but it’ll take 3-5 days to see the full effect of the treatment. There’s no down-time and you can resume light daily activities almost straight away post-treatment.
Benefits of Prohfilo – is it for me?
If you’re wondering whether Prohfilo is the correct choice for you, there are some benefits and aspects of the treatment to consider, including:
- Only around 10 injection sites are needed in total – Prohfilo is quickly absorbed beneath the skin almost instantly
- Full results can be seen with in 3-5 days – so you may need to plan ahead if you want to try Prohfilo for a specific event
- Side effects are minimal and can include bruising and swelling – these should subside within 24 hours
- Prohfilo injectables are delivered just below the skin’s surface over two separate sessions, scheduled four weeks apart. Again, you might like to plan ahead if you would prefer to see results before a specific date or event.
