27 November CREPEY SKIN
Crepey skin describes skin that looks and feels thin and wrinkled, giving the appearance of crepe paper. Generally, our skin becomes thinner as we age, but some factors may cause our skin to thin prematurely, such as early sun damage, people with fair skin, smoking, poor nutrition and weight loss and gain.
Hailed as “a true breakthrough in anti-ageing medicine”, Profhilo® is a revolutionary injectable that both tightens and hydrates the skin without the use of dermal fillers. It is an excellent option for the early prevention of lines, wrinkles and loss of volume.
Whilst Profhilo® treatment is based on pure hyaluronic acid (HA) technology, it’s more of a ‘skin booster’ than a filler. It hydrates the skin as well as stimulates four different types of collagen and elastin by slowly releasing hyaluronic acid, the key to younger-looking and rejuvenated skin. It is especially effective at treating loose skin in the face, cheek and jowls as well as other areas of the body usually considered difficult to treat with injectable products, such as the hands.
The patented technology behind Profhilo® allows it to maintain its stability without the use of chemicals (BDDE cross-linking agents) found in other HA-based products. Being free from additives as well as having a high level of purity makes it safer and reduces the chance of side effects.

What is Profhilo®?
During menopause, oestrogen production decreases, the tissues of the vulva thin and dry out. This causes loss of elasticity and lubrication of the tissues, which can be painful or sore. It is possible to use Desirial to improve the volume, hydration and elasticity of the tissue. It can also be used to improve episiotomy scars.
A great option for younger people who want to prevent the signs of ageing by strengthening the skin’s collagen & elastin and increasing hydration. It is also suitable for those who have started to notice the first signs of skin laxity or have visible signs of ageing skin.
