Is Profhilo worth it?

Profhilo Reviews: Is Profhilo Worth It?

The importance of feeling good about our appearance became ever-so-apparent during Lockdown (well, lockdowns); there was the realisation that getting dressed, brushing your hair and, if you were feeling fancy, sticking on some lipstick genuinely made you feel like you had a purpose and, yes, it made us feel better.

Is Profhilo Worth it?

Then there was ‘Zoom face’; have you ever been so fed up with looking at yourself in your life? We hadn’t been accustomed to looking at ourselves during every meeting or catching up with friends. The realisation for some that your skin is showing signs of ageing or that you’re looking less-than-fresh swept across the nation and made many wonders “what can I do for my skin?” and had us frantically searching the internet for the ‘best anti-wrinkle cream’.

Our St. Albans-based Clinic had floods of emails asking when we thought we would be reopening our doors and some were even asking if we were allowed to go to their house to give them their usual anti-wrinkle treatment (we didn’t, in case you were wondering).

Profhilo Reviews: Back to (Skincare) Beauty Basics

Anyway, I digress; what has become more apparent than ever is the importance of feeling fresh and confident in our skin. Of course, I could suggest lots of different treatments and how they could benefit your skin in different ways, but a good starting point is to make sure you’ve got some good basics going first of all. By basics, I mean a few staple skincare products you should use at home.

We’ve spoken about these products at some length previously so I’ll pop a link to some posts that you may find useful about keeping your skin plump and hydrated with a hyaluronic acid serum, slowing down the signs of ageing, including hyperpigmentation, with a daily SPF and help to improve breakouts and smooth wrinkles with a retinol cream (aka Vitamin A).

Profhilo Before and After

It is super important to look after your skin with these daily creams from both a health point of view and aesthetically, however, topical creams (no matter how fantastic the ingredients) will have a ceiling on how much they can correct your skin concerns; realistically, we all understand you are unlikely to get the same result from cream as you will from clinical anti-ageing treatments.

So what treatment options are there to give your skin a youthful boost and give you your glow back? One of our favourites here at the Skin to Love Clinic is Profhilo; it was dubbed the ‘injectable moisturiser’ when it launched and had US beauty journalists jumping on the red-eye to sample the treatment (luckily for us, it launched in the UK first). So, what is profhilo treatment? Let’s explore this treatment a little further…

First things first.

Profhilo Reviews & Profhilo Before and After Photos

Who Would Benefit from Profhilo?

There are no real restrictions as Profhilo injectable treatments can be used to prevent signs of crepey or ageing skin and to intensely hydrate the skin. However, it is most commonly used in the Clinic to correct signs of ageing most frequently on the face, neck, chest and hands.

You may benefit from a Profhilo neck treatment if you have lines and wrinkles; your skin lacks elasticity; you have skin crepiness; your skin has become thin and lacks plumpness; your skin has some sun damage; you would like to rehydrate your skin; you are looking for a way to maintain healthy, youthful-looking skin.

Collagen and Elastin: Is Profhilo better than Botox?

One of the reasons there was such a buzz about the Profhilo treatment when it first became available is because there had been no treatment like it before. Profhilo was a completely revolutionary, new category of injectable treatment so it cannot be compared to Botox (or filler) as its purpose is entirely different.

Profhilo is not similar to Botox in any way other than that it is an injectable treatment. Anti-wrinkle injections, AKA Botox, work on the muscles (not the skin) to relax them and reduce the movement of those muscles which in turn create lines such as those on your forehead and crow’s feet around your eyes.

Profhilo is also not a filler; dermal fillers are generally made from quite a thick hyaluronic acid gel which is used in areas that have lost volumes, such as your lips or cheeks, and to fill wrinkles such as those that can form around the top lip (‘smokers lines’) or the marionette lines. The purpose of Profhilo is to ‘bio remodel’ your skin (see below).

Profhilo Reviews & Profhilo Before and After Photos

The Difference Between Profhilo and Dermal fillers?

It’s quite easy to see how there’s some confusion surrounding the difference between Dermal fillers and Profhilo. After all, both are made out of hyaluronic acid (HA). As mentioned before, fillers use a thick HA gel which is injected into depressions in the skin, like wrinkles, or to rebuild volume in areas that have lost it, such as in the cheeks or under the eyes.

Profhilo is also made of HA but it is extraordinary in that it combines both high and low molecular weight HA. Which is then thermally stabilised, turning the two molecules into one compound (stay with me, that’s the science bit done).

Profhilo Reviews & Profhilo Before and After Photos

The reason this is important, and differentiates it from the ‘normal’ HA in your fillers is that once Profhilo is injected into your skin (it goes into the upper layers of your skin) its gorgeous honey-like consistency allows it to slowly spread throughout the area you want to rejuvenate, triggering ‘bio-remodelling’-stimulating four different types of collagen and elastin in your skin as it goes, resulting in a smoother, firmer, more youthful-looking, glowing skin.

Profhilo Before and After 

This is a personal decision. If you are looking for the type of results surgery, such as a facelift, can give you then possibly not; although your skin will benefit from the deep hydration and stimulation of collagen and elastin you will not achieve the same results from this non-surgical treatment as you would from surgery.

If you are looking for glowing skin and a more natural-looking way to improve your skin and signs of ageing, then Profhilo absolutely worth exploring with a skincare specialist to see if this is the best anti-ageing option for your concerns.

One of our clients who had the treatment has shared her Profhilo review and Profhilo before and after photos with us.

Profhilo Results: How Long Does it Take to Work?

The results aren’t immediate as using injectable profhilo as a method of skincare entails two treatments that are 30 days apart, each set of injections consists of five small injections on each side of your face. You may experience small bumps, much like an insect bite or bee sting, at the injection sites. These are very easy to cover usually and can take up to 24 hours to settle.

Profhilo Reviews & Profhilo Before and After Photos

 

Profhilo injections come in the form of two treatments and are a month apart from one another. In the 30 days after each set of hyaluronic acid injections, your skin works hard to produce new, bouncy collagen and elastin.

Profhilo benefits your skin by giving you a firmer, smoother and plumper complexion. The full results of your profhilo injections are seen only after the second session as your skin produces more and more collagen and elastin, however, changes are often noticed after the first set of hyaluronic acid injections.

    I'm claustrophobic so didn't like having my eyes completely covered, however, Jane was so patient & understanding & dealt with the situation brilliantly so I could have the treatment. It was a so easy in the end, took minutes, & nothing to worry about at all.

    I cannot recommend the team the innovation and treatments more highly than at the Skin To Love Clinic. They are at the cutting edge of beauty and have new ways and procedures that make your skin look beautiful. I've spent many years on Harley and Wimpole street and assumed you couldn't get this level of investment and treatments anywhere else but the Skin the Love clinic not only offer every top treatment but the Jane and Sue are so skillful and have a real eye for what will work for you. Their mini thread lift is incredible as is their 'vampire' treatment but skin since I have moved to St Albans has improved dramatically

    I have several issues with my skin and have been working with my doctor to deal with them. He referred me to a Dermatologist who advised on the treatment I needed. It took me a while to find the right place with the level of expertise that I needed and The Skin to Love Clinic ticked all of the boxes. My first experience with The Skin to Love Clinic was about 2 years ago. I had a consultation with Jane and immediately knew I was in good hands. I had a series of Fraxel laser which dealt with the issue as well as improved the quality of my skin. I am now dealing with a different issue and without hesitation made an appointment with Jane. What a relief to know that once again, I will be in the best hands and get the most appropriate treatment for my skin, not only dealing with the issue but also improving the health of my skin at the same time.About 4 years ago, I had threads from a well known Clinic in Harley Street. The process was extremely painful, left me with a lot of bruising, a disfigured face and took at least 6 weeks to recover. For the first 1 - 2 weeks I could hardly open my mouth, getting my toothbrush into my mouth was painful.2 weeks ago (with much trepidation) I had threads at Skin to Love. The difference was remarkable. This is a cosmetic procedure so when the threads are inserted, there is some discomfort. However, it was a far cry from the extreme pain from the Harley Street clinic. I had 1 pale yellow bruise about the size of 50p, no disfiguration and went out for dinner that night! My face was tender to touch for about 1 week but definitely not painful. I could see the results straight away and as time passes, it gets better. Thank you Jane for being so patient with me. I was so scared but now know I didn't need to be.

    First time trying Regenlite today. Nikki was helpful explaining the process and I noticed some immediate reduction in redness on my cheeks. Nikki also recommended my next treatment for thread veins. All in all the super friendly and knowledgeable service I’ve come to rely on at Skin to Love.

    Exceptionally positive experience:* A consultation is required to determine whether the requested treatment is suitable for me. This reassured me of their expertise and integrity (that they wouldn't just push any treatment on me)* Specialist Jane is clearly an expert on the Clear&Brilliant treatment and provided me with a comprehensive insight in the procedure + follow-up care and answered all my questions* Tomorrow I'll receive a check-in call, which shows their level of attentiveness* Reception staff is very friendly, welcoming and helpful* So far my Clear and Brilliant treatment looks good, will see results in 2-4 weeks

    I made the mistake of buying a product called Eyesential; an under eye enhancer which temporarily erases puffiness, fine lines, dark circles and wrinkles in minutes and lasts for up to 8 hours. I used this product for a period of 7 years. During this time, the skin under and around my eyes became thinner, reddened, chronically dry and intensely wrinkled. I thought there was nothing I could do and would be left like this. I felt so depressed. Then one day when I was in The Skin to Love Clinic having treatment for Laser Hair Removal; I was informed about Thermage for the very first time. I now have this procedure done yearly. Jane has brought my skin back to its original state and more. My confidence has come back and I feel a so much happier. This treatment really works!

    Emma is so professional and kind. At an initial consultation with her on a viral wart on my face, Emma explained my options and the procedure carefully and thoroughly. Afterwards I tried various lotions and wart removal products, but to no avail. Three months later I saw Emma again. It only took her a few minutes to surgically remove my wart. It was done with such a precision that my skin has been recovering really quickly and well. I highly recommend Emma!

    Would recommend, had a consultation by the nurse , very informative and all staff are extremely knowledgeable of their treatments. Not pushy in selling products or services , the look and feel of the store is very warm and welcoming. I am looking forward to getting treatments there.Update in 4/10/2021 - after going to mobile therapists and now here, I must say there is a big difference ! much much more professional and great customer service - I have had anti wrinkle injections and was reassured this will work and it has! ( I had deep frown lines) worth the bit of extra money for sure!
