25 Nov FINE LINES
Why do they appear?
Before we get the appearance of actual wrinkles, we see the start of what are ‘fine lines’. These are caused by the natural breakdown of collagen and elastin in our skin plus the years of exposure to the harmful UV rays from the sun. Fine lines first tend to emerge around the eyes, forehead and mouth.
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.
