Let’s talk about the pros and cons of Profhilo. (For those who don't know me, my name is Dr. David Lucey I run my beauty clinic in Dublin and share tips on aesthetics on my Instagram page @thebeautydoc.ie.)
The pros of Profhilo are fairly easy to explain: it's made of two forms of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural skin component, resulting in a natural look. It increases skin hydration, improves texture, and elasticity, without being easily detectable by others.
Another advantage is that Profhilo is very versatile. It can be used on the face, necklines, décolletage, or back of the hands to improve skin texture and reduce fine lines.
Furthermore, there is minimal downtime. Any temporary lumps disappear after a few hours, and occasionally, there may be a small bruise, but generally, the downtime is minimal.
Regarding the cons of Profhilo, it's slightly more inconvenient compared to anti-wrinkle injections because it requires two appointments a month apart. It is also more expensive than anti-wrinkle injections.
There may be a little more discomfort during the procedure since Profhilo is more viscous than anti-wrinkle injections and requires a special needle.
Lastly, as I always say, 9 out of 10 people love it, while 1 out of 10 may not be as satisfied initially. However, often even those individuals notice a difference when they come back after a month for the second Profhilo session to my Dublin clinic.
