Frequently asked questions about PROFHILO treatment
What can PROFHILO be used to treat?
Profhilo is excellent at treating anywhere we have skin laxity or need a boost in hydration. It can be used in the face, the neck, the decolletage, the backs of the hands and the abdomen. It is also a treatment we often use in bridal packages as it boosts the skin giving a refreshed look.
What can I do after treatment?
Following treatment the main thing is to not touch the area for 12 hours. Other things that should be avoided include strenuous exercise, applying makeup (for the rest of that day) and taking anything that may encourage bruising such as aspirin.

A course of treatment is 2 treatments 4 weeks apart. Results last between 6-9 months and many patients have this treatment every 3-4 months as a maintenance treatment.
How long does it take for PROFHILO to work?
50% of patients notice a result 2 weeks after the first treatment but we always recommend a course of 2 before any noticeable results are visible
