SKIN BOOSTERS

Profhilo & Hydrobooster

Known as “the Injectable glow” Profhilo and Viscoderm Hydrobooster are both hydrating skin treatments made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar chain molecule found in skin. Hyaluronic acid attracts and binds water in the skin providing natural volume and hydration, and also ‘cushions’ and supports collagen and elastin fibres.Both Profhilo and Viscoderm Hydrobooster are injectable skin boosting hydrating treatments which contain a high concentrate of this natural occurring hyaluronic acid.

Rather than adding volume like traditional hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Profhilo and Viscoderm Hydrobooster are ground breaking treatments, remodelling ageing skin, stimulates collagen and tightens, lifts, hydrates and improves tone.

These skin boosters deliver great results as a treatment on their own, or in combination with other aesthetic treatments.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW DO SKIN BOOSTERS WORK?

Although the majority of dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, Profhilo and Viscoderm are not dermal fillers.

Profhilo and Viscoderm are unique Hyaluronic acids that use dual action complexes released slowly into the skin to hydrate, remodel, firm, plump and smooth the skin with long lasting results.

Profhilo diffuses (proliferates) within the tissue after injection and over the period of 4 weeks it stimulates 4 different types of collagen and elastin.
Viscoderm, although similar, is particularly effective on the dynamic areas of the face such as the forehead and eye and mouth area.

Two treatments are required, 4 weeks apart. The first to stimulate and the second to ‘boost’ and ensure longevity.

WHO IS SUITABLE?

This treatment is suitable as both a corrective and preventative solution. However after the age of 30 the structures and hydration levels in the skin start to decrease therefore this is a good time to consider age prevention treatments such as Profhilo that will stimulate these structures to renew. Profhilo is an ideal treatment for anyone wishing to boost hydration, restore glow and luminosity.
Although similar,Viscoderm Hydrobooster will offer similar effects but is often used on patients with more moderate to advanced signs of ageing.

WHERE CAN THIS BE USED?

These rejuvenating treatments help skin laxity, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, improving creepiness and skin texture. They can be used almost anywhere, the common areas are:

Face
Neck
Chest
Hands
Inner Arms

Please note: Any injectable procedure will only be undertaken after your face to face consultation with one of our doctors, during which a full assessment will be carried out and full list of cautions and contraindications discussed.

WHAT RESULTS SHOULD I EXPECT?

Optimum results from treatment will be visible four weeks after the course which involves two injectable treatments four weeks apart. Clients can expect to see an intense hydration with glowing skin and fine lines minimised. You’ll notice smoother, tighter skin. Even patients with a more aged complexion an improvement in the texture is undeniable.

The treatment can be repeated after six months in cases where more repair is desired.

HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?

Longevity does vary between individuals, but results are expected to be gained over a period of 4-6 weeks and last for approximately 9 months. If you choose not to maintain the results with further treatment, your skin will return to its pre-treatment state over time.

ARE THERE ANY RISKS OR SIDE EFFECTS?

Profhilo was launched in February 2015 in Italy and has been used worldwide ever since. Over 150,000 patients have been treated so far with no adverse reactions reported. From a safety perspective, Profhilo is highly biocompatible due to the ultrapure, natural Hyaluronic Acid ingredients. It is also stabilised without the addition of chemical cross-linking agents. This reduces the risk of adverse reactions so the downtime is minimal, side effects are mild and temporary e.g. redness, pain, swelling and possible bruising

AFTERCARE

Take care around the filled area for the period immediately following your treatment. Avoid unnecessary touching/pressure for the first six hours. extremes of heat or cold, vigorous exercise, lying down or leaning over for 4-6 hours.
