Do’s & Don’ts After Profhilo

As a renowned aesthetics clinic in Doncaster, we help our clients achieve gorgeous, lasting results that help them look and feel more confident than ever. One of our treatments is Profhilo, an anti-ageing wonder that can combat skin sagging and volumise the skin. Find out more about it in today’s blog post, as well as some do’s and don’ts to follow after treatment.

Profhilo explained

First, let’s look at what treatment involves and why people decide to have it. Profhilo is an injectable treatment that uses hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in cells and helps retain moisture. This in turn helps support our skin and ensure it looks and feels firm. When injected, Profhilo stimulates those cells to combat sagging in areas such as the face, neck, hands, arms, knees, abdomen and decolletage.

Do’s of Profhilo treatment

DO: seek a professional for the procedure

It might sound obvious, but it’s so important to have your treatment carried out by experienced and qualified professionals, like our team here in Doncaster. While cheaper prices and inflated promises found elsewhere might seem tempting, we’ll be honest about what can be achieved and are priced competitively for what we offer.

DO: attend a consultation

This is your chance to understand the ins and outs of treatment; get comfortable with the practitioner and the clinic environment, and have peace of mind that we’ll be getting to know your skin and what works best for you.

DO: do speak out

If you suffer adverse effects (unlikely but possible), such as mottled bruising, excessive pain or itchiness, or problems with the product settling, do get in touch with us as soon as possible and we can help.

Don’ts of Profhilo treatment

DON’T: touch!

Little deposits of the product are injected into targeted areas, and it can be tempting to touch them. All of this could cause the hyaluronic acid to settle in the wrong place for a lumpy appearance or could introduce infection. This is also why we recommend wearing make-up in the treated area for the day.

DON’T: exercise

Getting that heart rate pumping could actually introduce swelling and bruising in the treated areas. Moderate exercise, like walking, is fine. Anything else is best avoided for a couple of days.

DON’T: drink alcohol

Celebrating your results with a glass of wine is not recommended in the first couple of days – it thins the blood and bruising can be more likely. This can also occur with certain pain relief, so check with your GP if you’re unsure.

DON’T: go in the sun

Hot and cold temperatures can wreak havoc on your recovering skin. Take a couple of weeks off from sunbathing and heat treatments like the sauna.
