Preparation before your Profhilo treatment begins:
If you’re considering a Profhilo treatment at Araya Beauty clinic, you may be wondering if it’s the right option for you. Profhilo is best suited for anyone aged 25–60 who want to fight the signs of ageing on their skin. It is safe to use at any age, but after 60 the skin is likely to have more sagging and folds that may need a combination of Profhilo with other anti-wrinkle treatments.
Profhilo is safe to use on every skin type. It’s the ideal treatment to fight tired, dull-looking skin and it’s a great way to target saggy neck skin and ageing hands. This treatment is not suitable for anyone who is pregnant, breastfeeding, or allergic to the ingredients; nor is it suitable for use on infected or irritated skin.
Before coming in for your first treatment, you can book in for a quick consultation with our aestheticians who will outline the process, risks, side effects, and aftercare process for you.
In the 24 hours before your treatment, avoid taking anti-inflammatory painkillers (e.g. aspirin, ibuprofen) and refrain from drinking alcohol. If you notice any signs of skin infection such as acne or cold sores in the area to be treated, contact your treatment specialist at Araya Beauty to confirm that you will still be able to receive treatment.
When you arrive for your Profhilo treatment, our qualified practitioner will answer any queries you may have. When you are ready, your skin will be cleaned to remove any product from the surface.
Profhilo is injected just beneath the skin’s surface, where the hyaluronic acid is then dispersed across a 2cm radius. 10 injections will be administered for a facial treatment, with 5 key injection points on each side of the face: below the eye, beside the earlobe, at the nasolabial fold, on the cheek, and on the chin.
The whole process is quick and painless, taking about 45 minutes in total.
Directly after your treatment, you may see a small lump or nodule at the site of each injection, but these will dissipate within 24 hours. The minimal side effects of this non-invasive treatment mean that you can resume most activities right away, but we recommend that you:
- Avoid anti-inflammatory painkillers for 24-48 hours post-treatment, as they can increase your risk of bruising.
- Avoid hot, steamy environments such as saunas or baths for a few days.
- Avoid excess sun exposure for a few days.
As soon as the treatment is finished, your skin will be noticeably smoother and brighter, and over a few days your production of collagen and elastin will improve to give you stronger, tighter skin.
We recommend that you visit us for two sessions, one month apart to get the best results from this treatment. After this, you can top up your skin with a maintenance treatment every 6 months.
A Profhilo injectable treatment at Araya Beauty clinic will help stimulate four types of collagen and elastin production in your skin. This is important because the three building blocks of youthful skin are collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid.
Collagen is a protein that gives your skin strength and thickness, elastin is a protein that keeps your skin stretchy and enables it to bounce back from wear and tear. Hyaluronic acid is a gel-like substance that works to keep skin plump and hydrated by attracting and retaining up to 1000 times its weight in water.
As we age, we start to lose these three key elements and our skin begins to dry out, wrinkle, and sag more easily. Because Profhilo contains such a high dose of hyaluronic acid (64 mg) compared to traditional fillers (between 15-23 mg), it’s able to replenish your skin’s foundations with serious hydration and rejuvenate your collagen and elastin supplies.
The benefits of a Profhilo treatment include:
- Tighter, firmer skin
- Brighter, more luminous skin
- Reduction of facial lines and wrinkles thanks to boosted collagen production
- Improved skin elasticity thanks to a boost in elastin production
- Natural results compared to more invasive options like fillers or facelifts
- A minimally invasive treatment with no downtime
- Results last for 6 months
Best of all, with a Profhilo treatment at Araya Beauty clinic you are safe in the hands of expert practitioners who are committed to providing you with a relaxing, enjoyable, and rewarding beauty experience.
