Enhanced Aesthetics and Skincare is proud to offer PROFHILO injectable treatment which is the latest innovative approach to anti-aging treatments.
How does Profhilo work?
It a series of injections that contain a high level of hyaluronic acid. As we get older, the hyaluronic acid (HA) that naturally occurs in our skin decreases, which causes our skin to lose its plumpness. It is much better to inject the hyaluronic acid, instead of just applying it to the outside of the skin with a cream or serum, as a higher quantity reaches the dermis of the skin (the deeper layers of the skin). When the HA is injected it acts like a sponge, absorbing water and makes the skin look more plump, younger and less tired.
This revolutionary treatment bioremodels the skin, nourishing the cells. This restores the firmness and hydration of the skin. All procedures are carried out by our highly experienced medical professionals at our clinic in Newry.
PROFHILO has one of the highest product concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid in the industry, thus enabling it to not only boost and hydrate the skin, but also remodel sagging tissue.
This is an excellent, affordable option for patients who want natural results with minimal downtime or discomfort.
