Registered Dental & Medical Aesthetics practitioner Ana Sakinyte shares her thoughts on planning high impact, low maintenance skin in time for your summer holiday.
Everyone seems to be planning summer holidays. When you think about it, there’s much to organise! In choosing a holiday we visualise where we’ll go, what the experience will feel like, will it make us happy, relaxed, romantic, inspired, adventurous, refreshed? We plan our itinerary, add to our wardrobe, think about our holiday hair (we want to look and feel great, right?), book our waxing and shop for sun lotions and after-sun care.
But there’s one aspect of holiday planning that gets overlooked – how do we want our faces and skin to look? When I pose the question to clients, the answers are usually “I don’t like to use make-up on holiday, but my skin doesn’t look so good without it,” “I wish my skin didn’t look so aged” or “I’d love to have a holiday glow in my pics”.
Planning for your face and skin should have equal importance to planning your wellness and hair, and we have a secret weapon to give your skin the ultimate youthful holiday glow with the easiest maintenance. Profhilo is a skin-boosting treatment that firms, tightens, and lifts the skin, improves skin hydration and quality, and stimulates elastin and collagen.
From the age of thirty, the amount of hyaluronic acid in our skin reduces, resulting in signs of ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles, and lacklustre skin. Profhilo acts to reduce these changes. It’s an injectable skin remodelling treatment, containing one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market, specially formulated for people whose skin lacks volume and elasticity.
Profhilo is ideal if you:
- Are over the age of thirty and want to look more youthful.
- Want to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve your skin quality.
- Want to get the best from your aesthetic treatments. Plump, glowing skin will support any other treatments, making them look even more effective.
How does Profhilo work?
Hyaluronic acid is hydrophilic, meaning it draws and holds water from your body, so Profhilo acts as a hydrator rather than a filler. This is what makes it so fantastic for people with tired, dull looking skin, transforming it into firm and luminous skin.
Rather than just plumping and filling wrinkles, the slow release of hyaluronic acid by Profhilo stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, in turn improving skin tone, hydration and the appearance of fine lines. The effect takes place within just three to five days of treatment, and you can expect improved skin quality to last up to six months.
Over the first few weeks, collagen and elastin production is stimulated, producing a secondary effect of skin tightening thus reversing some of the signs of ageing. The Profhilo process is delivered over two appointments spaced four weeks apart, reaching maximum effect two months after your second appointment.
Even when your skin is the best it can be, you should always protect your face with an SPF. Add to your Profhilo glow with medical grade Alumier MD Sheer Hydration SPF 40 with the choice of ‘Untinted’ or ‘Versatile Tint’ for a hint of colour and gorgeous luminosity.
If you’re working on your holiday checklist now, remember to add a consultation for aesthetics and skincare well in advance. You’ll set off for your trip feeling great and look even more fabulous in your holiday pics. Bon voyage!
