Skin Boosters and Dermal Biogenesis
Skin boosters are injections to the face, neck or hands which improve skin quality, laxity, tone, texture, and deep hydration of the skin. They will give an all over glow and hydration but also help to reduce fine lines, giving a natural dewy appearance.
Skin boosters are made of hyaluronic acid which is present naturally in the skin as the skin’s natural moisturiser, and other key ingredients such as Amino Acids, Antioxidants, Minerals and Vitamins. It is applied with multiple microinjections into the deep layers of the skin. This thickens the skin, stimulates the renewal of collagen and nourishes. Skin boosters can be used on the full face, neck or chest as hydrating or anti-ageing treatments, or to target specific fine lines such as vertical cheek lines, ‘smokers lines’ or necklace lines around the neck.
While the choice of skin booster is often individual to the patient and target area of concern we frequently use Teosyal® Redensity 1.

It stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity and improve and restore firmness of the skin.
HOW DOES PROFHILO WORK?
What is the downtime?
No downtime, you can continue with your routine activities. There may be slightly raised areas on the skin which will be barely noticeable.
What is the difference between Profhilo and Skin boosters?
They are very similar treatments. However, Profhilo allows a larger area (full face or neck) to be treated with only a few injections whereas skinboosters are often used to target specific fine lines. Profhilo also does more than hydrate and thicken the skin; it contributes to skin remodeling with new collagen and elastin production.
Is profhilo only for aging skin?
You can get this treatment at any age – it is the ultimate luxury preventative treatment. Many of our practitioners love having this treatment themselves and have done since their early thirties! However, you will notice more of a difference in your skin if you have some skin laxity present.
How long does it take to work?
You will notice a difference in your skin from a few days after the first treatment however the full results are apparent 4 weeks after the second treatment.
Can Profhilo only be used to treat my face?
The most common areas of treatment include the face and neck and can also be used for the décolletage, hands, arms, knees and abdomen area where it would effectively treat skin laxity. The treatment is suitable for men and women as well as offering skin benefits for patients of all ages.
