DERMAL FILLERS

& PROFHILO in the city London

Hyaluronic acid is a substance found in the deep layers of the skin known as the dermis; it delivers nutrients, hydrates the skin, acts as a cushioning agent and provides ‘scaffolding’ to lift any folds. As our body ages, production of hyaluronic acid decreases, resulting in visible signs of ageing.

Dermal fillers are composed of a synthetic material that replicates the body’s naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. They temporarily add volume to facial tissues and restore a smoother appearance to the face. Dermal fillers can also be used to treat facial atrophy (loss of fat) and for facial sculpting and skin enhancement. They provide natural-looking results that are safe and long lasting.

Hyaluronic Acid treatments available at Facial Aesthetics In The City

Dermal filler treatment in London

The dermal fillers we use are  hyaluronic acid-based, a substance that naturally occurs in your body and aids in the formation of collagen. Our body’s levels of hyaluronic acid drop off as we age, so boosting them in strategic locations helps to volumise and to rejuvenate your skin. Dermal fillers can also be used to fill in deep facial lines and even to re-shape facial features, gently sculpting and smoothing from within.

What is Profhilo

Profhilo is an injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) based product for treating skin laxity. With one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market (64mg / 2ml) it not only boosts and hydrates the skin, but it also remodels ageing and sagging skin tissues. It integrates into the skin tissues where it helps to restore levels of hyaluronic acid naturally found in the skin. Profhilo delivers great results as a treatment on its own, or in combination with other aesthetic treatments.
