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 ‘bio-remodels’ your skin from the inside out which reverses skin sagging and makes your skin firmer.
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.
“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 that thus far have been sustained. The results have exceeded my expectations. Better still, even my husband has noticed.”
The signs of ageing seen in this lady’s skin were 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 wanted to see what she could achieve.

Fabulous place. From the moment you step through the door you are warmly welcomed. Natalia is very knowledgable and friendly. She really listened to my concerns sensitively and gave me all the options available without pushing me to make a decision. I was given all the time I needed to make my choice and when I went back for my treatment it was such a relaxing experience. I went away knowing exactly what I needed to do as after care and I highly recommend Skin to Love
Had my first session of Sculptlift, with Jane. I had so many questions and Jane explained in simple terms enabling me to understand what to expect. The procedure was painless and Jane talked me through every step. I was left without bruising which was suprising as I usually bruise quite badly. I am looking forward to seeing the final results.
I cannot recommend this establishment enough. The receptionist was lovely and greeted me with a bright smile. Emma was friendly, kind and put me right at ease. After seeing how much my issue bothered me, she offered me an appointment the same day during her break to sort out my problem. I’m so happy and relieved that my issue is 95% sorted. Thank you so much Skin to Love! You’ve certainly got a customer for life now! I’ll be telling all my friends about this little gem.
I have seen Jane a few times for my skin tag removal and it’s been an absolute amazing service!! She’s been super calming and helped me every step and if I had any tension it was gone in a minute or so, she get rid of all the issues super quick and pain free and has been super helpful with the healing process afterwards too. This clinic is quite far from me but I am willing to travel for such a good service. Would recommend to everyone you’ll be really happy
Knowledgeable, friendly, helpful staff who counsel the right non intrusive option to suit your body shape and need. Results are seen within weeks too. Thank you Jane and team! Best decision I have ever made.
I’ve had the HydraFacia treatment with anti-aging booster recently and I couldn't be more pleased with the results! My skin feels incredibly clean, hydrated, and has a radiant glow. Nikki was fantastic—she meticulously explained each step of the treatment, ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable experience. The thoughtful touch of a follow-up call post-treatment added a personalised touch that I truly appreciated. Thank you, and I'm definitely looking forward to more sessions!
A friendly, warm and informative reception met me when I arrived.Emma was excellent and explained exactly what she was going to do.Emma talked through the forms and I felt confident with her knowledge and ability to treat me in a clean and hygienic medical room.I can highly recommend Emma and the Skin to live clinic in St Albans.

This was my first Hydrafacial and it was great!! The process was really interesting, lots of different steps and my skin is now glowing! I will definitely be back for another soon. Thank you so much for everything!
I've always been made to feel very welcome when visiting the Skin to Love Clinic. The follow-up sessions are a great opportunity to monitor progress and chat about any changes. Jane is very thorough and knowledgeable and her skin product recommendations have worked a treat. All the staff are really really lovely, I cannot fault a thing. Thank you!❤️
I had 3 moles removed (one on my face, and two on my body) by Emma. She did a wonderful job and they are healing up beautifully. She is clearly incredibly knowledgeable and I was well informed about the process. Not only that but she put my mind at ease fantastically as I was feeling quite nervous. We were able to laugh and chat throughout the appointment and I actually left in a better mood than when I went in! That is definitely Kudos to Emma (and the lovely staff at the front desk who always made me feel so welcome). Thank you so much.
I was a bit anxious about my skin condition at first however , it was by far the best experience I’ve had in a clinic so far. I was reassured and made feel comfortable. The expertise of Jane is outstanding, she went above and beyond and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for professionalism, warmth and effective treatment. Thank you!
I've been visiting the Skin To Love Clinic for around 6 years and cannot fault the staff and the service. I am made to feel special at every appointment and over the years Jane has offered me fantastic advice about my skin and general wellbeing. Jane has a wealth of experience and I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else! The result is always fresh and natural looking and I always leave the clinic with renewed confidence. Thank you!
