Who is suitable for Profhilo ?

The most common use for dermal fillers has been to increase the volume and size of women’s lips, with many types of dermal filler designed for this function due to the scale of the market. Women are looking to maintain their beauty and not let it lapse during their lifespan, which is why the option of dermal fillers to reverse or even postpone the unappealing signs of ageing is an advantageous choice. However, there are other popular uses of dermal fillers which are beneficial for both men and woman.

Facial lines are quite common due to advanced age and stress. Dermal fillers are effective in filling lines and improving facial aesthetics. One of the most common lines able to be filled in both genders is nasolabial lines, which are lines traversing from the nose to the corners of the mouth. These are commonly called smile or frown lines.

Wrinkles are an equally common condition which can be treated, and these include forehead wrinkles and wrinkles around the eyes, more commonly referred to as “crow’s feet”. Other commonly treated skin conditions are weak and sunken cheeks, acne scars and regular scars, and varicose veins in aged skin. Generally, the lines, wrinkles and folds able to be treated by the application of dermal fillers are lip lines, tear troughs (tired, baggy eyes), marionette lines (mouth to chin), frown lines, crow’s feet (around the eye), and nasolabial lines (nose to mouth).

Other applications can be classified under skin rejuvenation or contouring and enhancement. For rejuvenation the various parts that can be treated include the face, neck and the back of the hands. Contouring and enhancement include eyebrow reshaping, chin enhancement, cheek sculpting for sunken cheeks, shaping saggy jowls, turning up the mouth corners, nose contouring and lip enhancement.

Should you desire to have fillers on the upper regions of the face, the general recommendation is that fillers should be used in conjunction with muscle relaxant injections. There are a wide variety of conditions which can be treated by dermal fillers, and these include larger skin defects in the rest of the body.

What should I expect following my treatment?

Following your treatment you may experience some redness, swelling or tenderness at the treatment site. Occasionally some bruising may occur around the treated area; this is usually short term and will subside withing a few days. Lip treatments may take a little longer to settle, sometimes a week later.

What are the common side effects?

Each kind of dermal filler has its own side-effects and these may show up at different stages. This will mostly depend on the type of dermal filler used and also the length of time one is exposed to the filler. One other factor that determines the level and type of effects is when the product was manufactured and the actual manufacturer. As you would expect, the quality of fillers should be determined by the qualified and skilled administrators of the fillers to ensure there is no problem.
