10 August The Ultimate River Elixir for Youth and Hydration
Isn’t youthfulness a beautiful word? But it can be an elusive feeling – even to the young.
Both young and mature skin can feel like it needs a ‘lift’. Many women in their 20s and 30s report their skin feeling less ‘bouncy’ than before, using words like ‘tired’, ‘flat’ or even ‘grumpy’. We can all relate to that feeling. Often (mercifully) it is temporary – due to late nights, lack of sunlight, poor diet, or fluctuations in weight. But when it starts to feel more permanent, we need something a bit stronger than an intensive moisturiser.
Ageing is not just lines and wrinkles. Looseness or droopiness around the jowls, chin and eyes can give the game away, and to date, the only real options have been dermal fillers or the more extreme route of facelift surgery.
This is where our exclusive treatment package comes in. We have found the ultimate lifting, tightening, revitalising duo, by pairing our gold standard HydraFacial with a pioneering injectable known as Profhilo.
The Profile on Profhilo
Profhilo is a new category of injectable. It’s less like a dermal filler, and more like an injectable moisturiser. Instead of replacing or building your natural features, Profhilo uses a high concentration of hyaluronic acid (HA) that works with your natural tissue to boost and restore volume and vitality, and effectively remodel sagging skin. This is a seriously exciting development in a space that until now has been dominated by less natural, more permanent options.
The hyaluronic acid in Profhilo releases slowly, stimulating four different types of collagen and elastin in the skin (types I and III collagen in fibroblast, and types IV and VII collagen in keratinocytes, to be exact).
In the world of tweakments and cosmetic enhancements, it’s about as natural as you can get while still achieving significant results. Unlike other HA products, Profhilo is a dual action, slow release formula that combines two types of HA, L-HA and H-HA, making it an ideal candidate for addressing skin laxity:
L-HA: Non-inflammatory, releases slowly, and intensely hydrates the epidermis (outer layer).
H-HA: Constructs a stable architecture within the dermis (inner layer) that gives a ‘volumetric’ or lifting effect.
The fantastic thing about HA is that our bodies know, recognise, and respond to it, and its stimulating nature multiplies the treatment’s longevity.
As Profhilo has such a low inflammatory profile and pro-healing properties, this is a super accessible, entry-level treatment package for tweakment newbies. It’s like a mini facelift, but much more organic, and much less invasive. Two treatments are given four weeks apart, and if you’re happy with the results (we think you’ll be delighted), all you need to do is top up every six months. Simple.
The Ultimate Pairing
Uniquely at River Aesthetics, we use HydraFacial in tandem with Profhilo in order to amplify and prolong the youth-restoring results. This is a patented three-step process that’s been designed to get that Instagram glow with no highlighter required:
Step 1: Cleanse & Peel
Gentle exfoliation uncovers a new layer of sparkling skin.
Step 2: Extract & Hydrate
Painless suction technology removes dirt and debris from pores, followed by intensive moisturisers to quench and nourish thirsty skin.
Step 3: Fuse & Protect
The skin’s surface is saturated with a bouquet of antioxidants and peptides.
This is a particularly amazing facial for the summer, when our pores can get bombarded with sun, sweat and SPF. This luxurious youth-booster is recommended once a month, so it’s a match made in heaven for your first two Profhilo sessions.
