Does getting Profhilo hurt?
The needle used to inject profhilo is the finest there is. Most clients say that the treatment feels like a pressure or a stinging sensation.
What should I do before getting Profhilo?
- 1 week before the treatment, avoid taking aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E and fish oil supplements. These may increase bleeding and bruising. However, you can take paracetamol if needed.
- If you are taking any prescribed medication, including aspirin, do not stop taking it – consult your practitioner or your GP first.
- Avoid drinking alcohol 24 hours before your treatment, as this also increases the risk of bruising.
What can’t I do after getting Profhilo?
Don’t touch! Straight after the appointment, it is important not to touch the area. The areas will be a little raised and slightly swollen, however, these swellings will reduce rapidly after about 20 min. Touching the skin can increase the risk of infection.
No Makeup! For at least 24 hours. The tiny little points where the Profhilo is injected can get infected. If you must wear make-up, wear mineral make-up instead.
How long does it take for Profhilo to work?
Initial treatment needs to be performed and a following treatment after 4 weeks, this is to maximise the collagen production in the skin. You should start to see results in your skin quality after 6 weeks.
We recommend the maintenance of profhilo treatment as a one off treatment once every six months.
