Profhilo, PDO or Silhouette Soft – Which Treatment is for You?

With so much choice in non-invasive anti-aging treatments, like Profhilo, PDO or Silhouette Soft – which treatment is right for you?

 

As you age, your skin loses its elasticity and the fat in your face begins to decrease and migrate downwards. This process results in the appearance of wrinkles, naso-labial lines and sagging skin.

For years expensive cosmetic surgery was the only answer. However, over the last few years it has become easier for people to combat these signs of ageing with the use of non-surgical methods such as Profhilo, PDO or Silhouette Soft.

In this week’s blog we will look at these methods and see how they differ from each other. This will allow you to make a more informed choice as to which would be the ideal treatment for you.

 

Profhilo- dermal filler

  • A dermal filler manufactured using hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body
  • ‘curls’ wrinkles, rather than filling them
  • Promotes hydration of the skin, and improves tone and texture
  • Promotes the growth of four types of collagen and elastin in the skin
  • Due to the high spreadability of the filler, only five injection sites are necessary
  • Two session of injections are necessary for a full treatmentProfhilo, PDO or Silhouette Soft – which treatment is right for you
