29 Apr Profhilo vs. Fillers – Which is best?
Today there are lots of different injectable skin treatments available, with two of the most popular being Profhilo and Dermal Fillers. But while both are injected into the skin and have anti-ageing benefits, they work in very different ways. Read on to discover the differences between Profhilo and fillers to help you decide on the best treatment for you.
What is Profhilo?
Profhilo is a new injectable treatment made from 2 types of 100% pure synthetic hyaluronic acid. It is designed to hydrate and moisturise the skin, working from the inside, out. Profhilo also helps to accelerate the production of collagen and elastin to remodel the skin and create a more youthful appearance. You could say it’s skincare in a syringe!
For best results, we carry out Profhilo injections across 2 sessions, 4 weeks apart. In the 1st session the injections will begin to hydrate and remodel the skin. In the 2nd session the formula will continue to boost the results and the antioxidants shield the skin against signs of ageing.
Benefits of Profhilo:
- Improved skin texture
- Instant glow & radiant appearance
- Mega hydration deep within the skin & on the surface
- Improved skin tone, firmness & elasticity
- Soft looking skin
How much does Profhilo cost?
Profhilo treatment in Kent costs £525 and includes both sessions. If you would like the treatment on more than one area i.e. your face and neck, you will require 2 sessions per area.
What are Fillers?
Dermal Fillers contain hyaluronic acid, amongst other ingredients. They are most commonly used to plump up specific areas of the face that have lost volume. At our Bromley salon, Becky offers lip fillers, nasolabial fillers and marionette fillers.
Benefits of fillers:
- Fuller lips
- Smoother smile lines
- Immediately visible results
- Little to no downtime
- Minimal swelling & bruising
How much do fillers costs?
The prices of dermal fillers in Bromley depends on the area, brand of filler and amount of filler used.
1.1ml Lips – £180
2ml Lips – £280
1.1ml Nasolabials (nose to mouth lines) – £200
1.1ml Marionettes – £190
We apply a surcharge of £30 per area for Revolax filler.
What’s the difference between Profhilo & Dermal Fillers?
While both injectable treatments contain hyaluronic acid, the consistency is very different. Whereas the hyaluronic in fillers stays in a single place to create volume, the thinner hyaluronic acid in Profhilo spreads evenly across the skin.
Fillers are injected into a targeted area i.e. lips, marionettes, nasolabial lines. Whereas Profhilo involves several tiny injection points for a wider coverage on the hands, face or neck.
Which treatment is better?
Profhilo and Dermal Fillers are both very different. Neither one is better. Essentially, it comes down to the best approach for the results you desire. This is why we always offer a full consultation prior to treatment.
Generally, if you are looking to boost skin hydration, rejuvenate your complexion and reduce skin laxity, Profhilo will be the best injectable. The treatment take around 30 minutes, with results lasting from 6-9 months. Downtime is minimal (24 hours) and a little swelling and bruising is normal. People tend to see improvements to their skin after just 5 days.
If you are looking to boost a specific area i.e. your lips or target deeper wrinkles and skin folds, injectable dermal fillers can help to restore the structure of the skin and add plumpness. Results can last up to 6-12 months depending on the filler.
Can you have Profhilo and Dermal Fillers?
Profhilo and Dermal Fillers can work together to boost radiance, restore plumpness and create an overall more youthful appearance. However, if you have dermal fillers in the cheek or jaw area, you will need to wait at least 2 weeks before having Profhilo injections.
