Does Profhilo Stimulate Collagen?

Profhilo is the treatment on everyone's lips right now. Many people know it as a treatment that gives you a gorgeous glow, but did you know that it is a brilliant anti-ageing treatment?

Before we get into it, let’s have a look at what Profhilo is…

Profhilo is an injectable skin boosting treatment containing one of the highest concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) on the market, especially formulated for people who feel their skin may be lacking volume and elasticity. It is also a great product for those who are experiencing dull looking skin.

How does Profhilo work?

HA is hydrophilic, meaning it draws and holds water from your body, so Profhilo acts as a hydrator rather than a filler. This makes it fantastic for those with tired, dull-looking skin, transforming it into firm, youthful and glowing skin.

What is Collagen?

Collagen is a type of protein that naturally occurs in the body. It serves as one of the main building blocks for your bones, skin, hair, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. When it comes to skin, collagen is what keeps it from sagging giving us a plump, youthful look. Collagen levels however begin to rapidly drop from the age of 30, which us why treatments that help promote stimulation of the protein are great.

Does Profhilo Stimulate Collagen?

Yes. Over the the first few weeks of the Profhilo treatment, collagen and elastin production is stimulated, producing a secondary effect of skin tightening. It stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, key proteins for full, smooth, wrinkle-free skin. Elastin fibres become more susceptible to wear-and-tear as we age and the production of collagen naturally slows down, so this simple procedure can not only help to slow down the signs of ageing, but help to protect against it too.The maximum effect of Profhilo is usually seen 2 months after the second treatment.
