Getting old is a fact of life that we must all learn to accept at some point, and is inevitable, however slowing the signs associated with ageing can be achieved. As we age our skin loses elasticity and moisture which results in the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Over the centuries different methods have been used to try to slow or stop the course of nature with limited success. The amazing scientific discoveries and improved technology that is used today have helped to develop and improve products and techniques aimed at slowing the process of ageing. Profhilo Kent uses hyaluronic acid which is a non-sulfated Glycosaminoglycan that is naturally produced in the Plasma membrane of the human body. The treatment works through a double-action approach. Natural stimulation of hyaluronic acid production is produced which results in a natural skin tightening effect.
As we age our skin loses moisture and nutrients Profilho Kent acts by using a purer form of hyaluronic acid devoid of additives which produce fewer side effects. Using fine needles allows the gel to be injected and work below the skin where it nourishes the cells of the skin and improves elasticity producing a younger firmer-looking complexion. Sometimes used as a treatment by itself or in conjunction with other treatments such as dermal fillers and Botox. The structure of this treatment is what makes it different, using thermal bonding techniques as opposed to a chemically bonded technique it hydrates rather than fills. The consistency of the Hyaluronic gel is more akin to a smooth, honey-like, texture as opposed to the lumpy consistency of traditional fillers.
By hydrating the skin a firmer feel is achieved and the most popular areas where the treatment is applied are the face and neck. Skin laxity in the areas around the knees, abdomen, hands and arms also enjoys popularity. All ages and sexes can be treated, but the longevity of the results depends on the age of the patient.
Is the treatment painful?
Because we use very fine needles the amount of discomfort experienced is negligible but we can apply a numbing cream to the relevant areas before treatment starts, reducing the discomfort even further. As a dental practice we are used to administering injections, so extra care is taken to ensure that the treatment is delivered in a safe and sterile treatment room. Because the treatment is produced by trained dental staff if a patient should experience any side effects we have the knowledge and training to provide the necessary treatment and care.
Stimulates skin tightening and lifting
Collagen and elastin are stimulated, rehydrating the skin by attracting moisture deep in the layers of the skin. The slow release of hyaluronic acid means that the results last longer. Tissue improvement produces a firmer appearance reducing wrinkles and lines. Ageing is a product of time but appearance is the result of care and attention and the best care and attention is achieved by using the most natural products.
