As we age, our skin becomes thinner and loses its natural elasticity, leaving skin looser and causing wrinkles. Over time, elastin and collagen levels drop in the dermis of the skin, often accelerated by sun damage and other factors. Profhilo is an injectable treatment containing hyaluronic acid that helps to rebuild the lost elastin and collagen in the dermis caused by the ageing process. At Palm Tree Skin our Nurse practitioner Mandy use Profhilo treatment as a natural skin enhancer, to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, hydrate and plump the skin and create a naturally glowing, youthful complexion. It has regularly been voted the best new anti-ageing treatment by press, and is ideal for those wishing renewed firmness and elasticity.
The benefits of Profhilo include deep skin hydration, the smoothing out of fine lines and wrinkles, the boosting of elastin and collagen levels and dermal remodelling over time. Your complexion will appear hydrated, healthy and glowing. Unlike dermal fillers, which are also made from hyaluronic acid but tend to stay in the place they are injected, Profhilo spreads within the skin to treat the whole face (or neck, or indeed any other area in the body), giving an overall refreshed appearance to the skin itself.
Profhilo® treatment boosts and stimulates four different types of collagen and elastin, remodelling and boosting the deep supporting dermis layer of the skin. It contains a high dose of Hyaluronic Acid, a substance that occurs naturally in our bodies and is key to our skin remaining hydrated. When Profhilo is injected, our skin is rehydrated from the inside and over the following 3-6 months post-procedure, the cells producing collagen and elastin are stimulated, for a longer-term result restoring the overall quality, tightness and smoothness of your skin.

There are five injection points on either side of the face which ensures an even distribution of the product.
Profhilo injectable treatment can be used to treat the face, neck, décolleté, hands or anywhere on the body where there is skin laxity.
Profhilo works extremely well with other anti-ageing treatments. Used in conjunction with botox and fillers, it can help to refresh your complexion and give the perfect glow to your face, reducing signs of ageing.
The effects last approximately 6 months to 1 year.
Results can be seen from two weeks with the optimum effect visible one month after your final treatment. Lifting and tightening of the skin will be evident over the longer term (3-6 months).
Usually two sessions are required, spaced one month apart. A third treatment is often undertaken by some patients who have particularly lax skin.
You may have a small swelling at the injection points after the appointment but these will subside within 24 hours. There may also be a small amount of bruising on the treatment area but can be covered up with make-up and will fade quickly a few days after treatment.
