At Cosmedics Dr Lalloo will only carry out a non-surgical aesthetic procedure following a detailed one-to-one consultation with a patient, enabling her to accurately assess whether a treatment is appropriate given a patient’s unique medical history, skin condition and expectations.
During your consultation, you will be given comprehensive information about the procedure, potential side effects and any pre- and post-treatment advice. You will also be given the time to decide whether or not, given the information you have received, you would like to proceed with any recommended procedure.
As with all non-surgical aesthetic treatments, there is a small risk of a patient experiencing side effects following a Profhilo treatment – though this is significantly reduced by asking detailed questions about any current and/or past health issues. Some patients have seen minor bruising and mild swelling at the injection sites, but this generally subsides quickly.
Profhilo is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or people who are allergic to Hyaluronic Acid.
How does this treatment work?
Profhilo is an injectable treatment that specifically targets a 2cm radius of the injection site, with the product being gradually absorbed into this specific area. As a result, if the face is being treated, there are just 5 injection points on each side of the face to ensure optimal distribution and absorption of the slow release Hyaluronic Acid formula.
Once the absorption process has started, Profhilo stimulates the production of 4 different types of collagen and elastin. It is this stimulation that results in significant improvement of tissue quality and skin tone, as well as improved overall texture, hydration and radiance. Profhilo also helps to increase the firmness and elasticity of the skin in the treatment area.
