Profhilo is not the same as a dermal filler.
Although both contain hyaluronic acid, Profhilo does not have the same thick viscosity as a dermal filler. In contrast, Profhilo is a water-like gel with a similar constancy to honey and injected in small amounts across the face. It spreads beneath your skin, stimulating collagen and elastin to improve skin tone, texture, and elasticity. The result is an overall more youthful, hydrated, glowing complexion.
Profhilo will enhance an entire area rather than fill one specific line or fold like a dermal filler. Profhilo can flow freely through the deep skin layers in a way that dermal fillers cannot, and it won't produce lumps and bumps. A minimum of two treatments are required
TKN HA 3
known as Toskani Hyaluronic Acid-3, is an injectable anti-ageing treatment made from hyaluronic acid for skin that is losing its elasticity and firmness with age. It can be used on the face, neck, decollete, arms, hands and knees, or any part of your body where the skin shows visible signs of ageing.
Hyaluronic Acid is a very versatile molecule which can hold up to 1000 times its own molecular weight in water which makes it ideal for adding hydration to the skin. This results in a plumper, more youthful looking complexion. TKN HA 3 also stimulates collagen and elastin production which are the building blocks of the skin giving it more elasticity.
TKN HA 3 can be used as a very successful stand-alone treatment or can complement other aesthetic treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers.
Mesotherapy is an injection and treatment technique used in general medicine and aesthetics for a multitude of medical conditions and skin solutions.

Botox is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium Botulinum bacterium. It is a non surgical, physician- administered treatment that can temporarily reduce moderate to severe lines and wrinkles.
Small doses of Botox are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause lines. The treatment time is 10-20 minutes depending on how many areas are treated. No recovery time is required.
Botox keeps the muscles that cause frown lines from contracting, this will then cause the skin to become smoother.
Within a few days, you will see an improvement and this can continue for up to one month.
Research shows that 90% of men and women rated the improvement of their appearance as moderate to better one month after the treatment.

The longevity of the treatment will depend on the person but normally you can expect results to last between 3-6 months. You will notice a gradual fading of the effects, at this point you will want to return for your next treatment.
Usually, treatment is required 2-3 times a year.
A tiny needle is used for the treatment therefore the discomfort is very minimal. The area can be numbed with a cold pack or local anaesthetic cream but is rarely required.
The entire treatment normally takes around 10 minutes and once the injection is complete there is often no discomfort.
There is no downtime however you may be asked to avoid exercise for 24 hours.
Sagging, drooping skin cannot be corrected using Botox. Damage caused by the sun, such as leathery, wrinkled skin is also not appropriate for the treatment.
