Profhilo aftercare is very important! We’ve written a complete guide on what to expect after Profhilo treatment and how to recover correctly.
By ensuring your Profhilo after care is taken care of correctly, you’ll get a longer-lasting final result.
Let’s get into the following aftercare advice for optimal results!
Profhilo Aftercare Instructions
Here is the list of things you should be avoiding post-Profhilo treatment. If you follow this correctly, you’ll have better results and healthier-looking skin.
Alcohol increases dehydration levels, which you do not want to do during your aftercare regime.
One of the best benefits of bio remodelling treatment (Profhilo) is extreme skin hydration. This makes your skin look healthy and plump, so do your best to avoid alcohol for as long as possible.
There are no dangers with drinking alcohol, but if you’re spending big money on skin hydration, it makes sense to limit dehydrating actions.
Avoid strenuous exercise
Strenuous physical activity should be avoided after profhilo treatments for 24 hours.
You need your skin to start to recover and adding sweat or heat will make things take slightly longer. Normal activities can be resumed 24 hours after treatment.
Avoid heat-inducing activities
You should avoid activities that induce heat, like; saunas, spas, hot water and hot showers.
These activities increase the likelihood of bruising, so make sure to avoid them for 48 hours after your treatment.
Avoid wearing makeup
Can I wear makeup after a Profhilo treatment? Our aftercare advice regarding make up is to avoid makeup for at least 12 hours after your Profhilo treatment.
This gives the treatment area and injection site time to recover and not have any external irritants added to the mix.
Pro Tip: Get Profhilo treatments done in the afternoon so you can wear makeup as normal the next day.
Avoid certain other skincare treatments
You should avoid facials and skincare treatments that can be harsh on the skin for at least 2 weeks.
Some of these include:
- Chemical peels
- Microneedling (skin needling)
- Laser treatments
Give your skin a break and let the bio remodelling and hyaluronic acid work their magic.
Apply a cool compress (if needed)
If you’re experiencing any minor bruising or swelling from your initial treatment, you can apply a simple compression such as an ice pack or cold compression towel to the area to help minimise the swelling reduce bruising.
This should only be done on the day of treatment, and you should make sure not to overdo it.
5-10mins every 30-60mins is fine.
What should I avoid prior to Profhilo treatment?
During the week prior to your treatment, you should avoid alcohol (as it increases the time the blood takes to clot, which could cause bruising) and blood-thinning vitamins, supplements and medications unless they are medically necessary.
Some of these include:
- Fish oils
- Omega 3
- High dose Vitamin E
- Gingko Biloba
- St John’s Wort
What To Expect After Profhilo
After Profhilo treatment, you can expect some very minor redness, needle pin marks and some possible bruising to the area.
The treated area can also experience lumps, but these will generally disappear within 6-24 hours.
This is a normal result.
One thing to note is there is an extremely rare complication that can occur which is called vascular occlusion. This is when the blood vessel gets clogged by the filler.
If you experience any changes of colour to the skin, major pain or feel generally unwell you should seek medical advice immediately.
What about sleep? See information regarding how to sleep after Profhilo here.
How Long After Profhilo Can I Have a Facial?
The time between a Profhilo treatment and having a facial can vary, but general guidelines suggest avoiding any facial treatments for at least 24-48 hours post-injection to allow the skin to recover.
Depending on your service provider and the type of facial you’re looking to get, you may need to wait up to a week for gentle facials or even longer for facials like chemical peels.
