Blog Series: the science behind natural collagen remodelling.
As part of our latest blog series, we’ve been looking at the science behind natural collagen remodelling. You can read the first instalment here, where we explain what collagen is, why our natural treatments are a favourite among A-listers and the science behind HIFU. In this blog, we explore our Profhilo treatment, and why it is so effective at reducing signs of aging.
The science behind Profhilo
Performed by KICHI’s resident Doctor, Dr Hennah Bashir, Profhilo is an injectable treatment that stimulates 4 types of collagen. Containing an ultra-high concentration of hyaluronic acid (which is naturally found in the body) it boosts hydration for a rejuvenated and glowing complexion.
One of the body’s naturally occurring substances, hyaluronic acid helps our skin to maintain moisture while supporting collagen production. However, as we age its production naturally slows down, which can leave skin looking, tired, dull and with an increase in fine lines and wrinkles.
With results visible in as little as 2 treatments, this ‘beneath-the-skin-moisturizer’ intensely draws water to the dermis, helping to improve elasticity and restore the skin’s natural firmness. In contrast to dermal fillers that add volume, Profhilo has an overall plumping effect, as opposed to being directed at just one specific area. This makes it perfect for those looking for a blanket youthful boost without too much downtime.
