There are lots of treatment trends that promise to banish the signs of ageing. Patients are increasingly looking to achieve a younger fresher looking appearance in a gentler, less obvious way. Skin boosters are the perfect option to refresh and revive your skin.
The Dr Wafaa Clinic offers Profhilo skin booster treatment – which does so much more than simply increasing skin hydration. It delivers visible improvements to skin texture, elasticity, hydration and overall appearance – helping you achieve a natural youthful glow.

Skin Boosters – how do they work?

Skin boosters are an injectable treatment, formulated to deliver deep down hydration and boost your skins natural collagen production – which declines as we age. They contain hyaluronic acid, a soft gel-like substance that gently smooths and nourishes your skin.

The advantage of skin booster treatments are the more natural results they deliver, in addition to:

  • Speedier after treatment recovery over surgical options.
  • Adds a more subtle volume by gently plumping the skin.
  • Enhances your skin’s ability to renew and repair – to get your glow back.

At the Dr Wafaa clinic our Profhilo skin boosting treatment offers many advantages over other simple skin boosters. Profhilo contains very pure hyaluronic acid that can blend naturally with your skin, stimulating collagen and providing immediate skin revival.

Profhilo benefits include:

  • Reduced fine lines and puffiness around the eye.
  • Improved skin texture and tone.
  • Better hydration.
  • Enhanced skin tone.
  • Reduction in dry patches.
  • Firmer skin with increased elasticity.
  • Brighter more radiant complexion.

If you’re looking for a non-surgical anti-ageing treatment that’s safe, effective and long-lasting then Profhilo is the perfect choice.

Can I fit in a treatment in my lunch break?

Yes! The procedure itself is normally completed in around 15 – 30 minutes depending on the area being treated and no anaesthesia is required. So, you can be back at work the same day.

We recommend patients have two to three treatments initially, given a few weeks apart. The benefits of Profhilo build up over time and increasing benefits are seen within three months of the second treatment.

There can be some light swelling up to 72 hours post treatment, but this usually settles quickly. There are a few things to avoid in order to achieve maximum benefit from the treatment.
After receiving skin booster treatment patients should avoid:

  • Avoid any heat inducing activities for 48 hours such as strenuous exercise, spas, saunas and steam rooms.
  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours.
  • Avoid active cosmeceutical products (AHAs, retinols, vitamin C) on the night of treatment and oil-based makeup for 24 hours.
  • You can lightly cleanse on the day of treatment using light pressure.
  • Avoid facials, waxing and chemical peels for 2 weeks after treatment.

After treatment it is also vital to avoid excessive exposure to the sun as your skin will be healing. Apply SPF 50 sunscreen and refrain from sunbathing for at least 72 hours after PRP.
The Dr Wafaa clinic can offer specialist advice on other treatments that work well with Profhilo and create an ideal plan for your skin care routine.

Can Skin Boosters be combined with other treatments?

Absolutely! They work well when combined with other treatments such as PRP. This provides an opportunity to merge the skin boosting benefits – combining with the patient’s own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to create a ‘Turbo Skin Booster’.

Skin boosters can also be a supercharging addition to our popular Aquagold treatment. This treatment uses a micro infusion facial device, which is applied to the skin in a gentle stamping motion. It delivers a tailored Aquagold cocktail directly into the skin. Skin boosters can be incorporated into this mix, along with, vitamins, stem cells, antioxidants, toxins (micro-tox), autologous conditioned plasma, and peptides which are delivered into the skin as the device creates 1000’s of micro-infusion sites.

It also works well with dermal filler to produce a fuller result, whilst introducing the positive benefits of collagen production. At the Dr Wafaa Clinic we can create a bespoke plan to achieve your personal treatment goals.

Will Skin Boosters really help me get my glow back?

A brightening skin booster treatment can be exactly what tired dry skin needs to help restore its youthful glow. It can work wonders on dark circles under eyes – which often cause us to look worn-out. With its nourishing properties and the hydrating plumping effect, it can thickens transform skin texture, making it look brighter and healthy.

Harnessing the perfecting properties of hyaluronic acid, it works deep down in the skin to support your body’s natural collagen production. Softly blurring fine lines whilst smoothing and illuminating your complexion. They can definitely help you get your glow on!
