Profhilo

There are many ways that aging affects our appearance. But this also means there are many powerful approaches to combat aging! One effective method is by targeting hydration through Profhilo®, a type of injectable rejuvenation treatment. This anti-aging hydration treatment contains high levels of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring compound that helps improve tone, texture and elasticity.

As we age, the natural levels of hyaluronic acid in the skin begin to decrease, causing the skin to lose firmness and elasticity. Most people begin seeing the effects of hyaluronic acid depletion in their 30s – and Profhilo is an effective treatment to counteract this.

As a top aesthetic and dermatology clinic in Dubai, Omnicare provides world-class Profhilo treatments.

How does Profhilo work?

Profhilo harnesses the power of hydration to improve the overall texture and tone of your skin. A solution of hyaluronic acid and other nutrients are injected into 5 key areas of the face (the tops of cheeks, sides of the face, lines around the mouth, nasolabial folds and laughter lines), or into the neck, chest and décolletage.

You will notice a more hydrated appearance in your skin immediately after treatment. Profhilo also has a prolonged, stimulating effect on dermal cells, so you will see an overall improvement in skin tone, texture, and elasticity after 8 weeks. Two sessions are required for optimal results. Results last around 6 months.
