If your skin has been feeling dull and tired, and fine lines are starting to set in, the Profhilo filler treatment may be the booster your skin has been craving!
What is Profhilo?
Sometimes referred to the ‘Lunchtime Facial’ it is a quick treatment with amazing results! Profhilo is one of the most talked about non-surgical treatments and we can see why!
Profhilo is an injectable anti-ageing treatment made from hyaluronic acid to address skin that is losing its elasticity and firmness. It is injected just below the surface of the skin where it quickly disperses and reacts with the tissue to instantly boost hydration.
Immediately following the treatment there is a noticeable improvement in skin tone, hydration as well as firmness, and lines are minimised.
Over the next four weeks the Profhilo treatment works to boost elastin and collagen production, effectively remodelling the skin and giving it a plumper, smoother and firmer appearance.
For optimum results, Profhilo requires two treatments, both of which are included in the price.
How does Profhilo work?
Profhilo has a hyaluronic-acid-based, gel-like formula that attracts water to the skin’s surface but, rather than sticking where it is injected, it spreads beneath the skin like honey – so it works throughout the tissues to lift, hydrate and re-contour. It does not add volume (unlike conventional filler), but it does ‘remodel’ the skin, propping it up and giving a youthful glow.
Profhilo is suitable for anyone who has noticed signs of ageing from skin laxity and fine lines will benefit from this treatment. It can be used to improve appearance of the skin on the:
• Face and Neck
• Chest and décolletage
• Elbows and Knees
What happens at your Profhilo appointment?
This treatment is one of the most requested treatments at the Shamrock Clinic and the results are amazing to boost hydration and for skin laxity. An initial consultation will take place, where Ann will assess your current skin condition and determine if this is the right procedure for you. Anaesthetic cream is applied to the skin to aid comfort during the procedure. Profhilo® also contains local anaesthetic.

After the procedure, the skin looks instantly tighter. A month later, following a second treatment, new collagen and elastin starts to become apparent; and by the time you have finished, your face will be looking lifted. A further single treatment is required every 6 months to maintain the effect.
