I’ve loved looking back over some of our patient success stories recently and there was one that jumped out at me in particular because she had her neck treated and we see a lot of ladies, in particular, come to our Clinic with this concern.
The neck is one of the first places that start to show our age. These before and after photos also stood out to me because I remember how she approached the treatment-“a cautious optimist” (her words)- and was really blown away with the result she achieved with the Profhilo treatment.
Let me quickly get you up to speed about the Profhilo treatment: it’s a revolutionary type of injectable treatment. Not to be confused with a wrinkle filler, Botox or a skin booster, this treatment is a totally different category of injectable; Profhilo ‘bioremodels’ your skin from the inside out which reverses skin sagging and makes your skin firmer. You can read more about what Profhilo is in more detail here.
Profhilo is a split treatment, meaning that one full treatment of Profhilo is split across two treatment sessions, in the main. However, if your skin has advanced signs of ageing a further session may be recommended for you.
Is Profhilo worth it? Have a read here but not before you have a look at these fabulous before and after photos and hear what the lady in question had to say.
“This treatment worked for me!
A cautious optimist by nature, I began the staged procedure not expecting to see a huge improvement. 60 years of too much sun, not enough sunscreen and a general lack of attention to my throat had taken its toll: the skin was loose and wrinkled, the skin tone generally poor. Would Profhilo be the answer?
I’d read about the science behind the procedure and had a great deal of confidence in the Skin to Love team. True to form, the detailed explanation about what would happen and the recovery time was exactly right. The injections were painless (I had no need for the stress balls) and on each occasion, the insect bite-like marks that they left had disappeared within 24 hours. I had one small bruise after my second session which took a couple of days to fade but otherwise, there were no signs of any interventions two days after each treatment. I had four sessions. The fourth was an optional top-up to smooth out some remaining creases – not strictly necessary, but to my eye it did make a difference.
The impact was rapid, visible and successive. Each treatment resulted in improvements which thus far have been sustained. The results have exceeded my expectations. Better still, even my husband has noticed.”
The signs of aging seen in this lady’s skin was quite advanced before she had her skin treatments at our skin tightening clinic in Hertfordshire. As a result, our practitioner recommended three treatment sessions, rather than the usual two. These before and after photos show the improvement after her third session, but as she mentioned she then decided to go on and have a fourth as she was impressed by the results and want to see what she could achieve.
