Turkey neck—the saggy, wrinkly skin that hangs from your neck and jawline—is a common sign of aging. As we get older, our skin loses elasticity, and collagen production slows down, which can cause the skin to become lax and droopy.
Turkey neck is most common in people over 50, but it can also affect younger adults. In addition to being a cosmetic concern, turkey neck can cause pain and discomfort.
The extra skin can make it difficult to turn your head, and the wrinkles may worsen if you have a condition like arthritis. Profhilo injections and related cosmetic treatment options for turkey neck include can help to stimulate collagen production and tighten loose skin.
So is Profhilo Good For Turkey Neck?
Profhilo is a skin booster that contains high concentrations of hyaluronic acid. It is FDA-approved for correcting moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It is also approved for the improvement of skin laxity in the neck.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in the skin that helps retain moisture and provide volume. When injected into the skin, it helps to smooth out lines and wrinkles and improve skin laxity.
Since Profhilo contains high concentrations of hyaluronic acid, it can provide long-lasting results for people struggling with Turkey neck. Profhilo itself isn’t a dermal filler, and this partly explains why most people ask if it is good for turkey neck.
The answer is, yes, Profhilo is good for turkey neck! The benefits of using Profhilo include its ability to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and skin texture.
It can also help to provide a lifting effect, which can be particularly beneficial in addressing concerns such as turkey neck. When injected into the skin, Profhilo stimulates collagen and hyaluronic acid production, both of which are key components in maintaining youthful, healthy-looking skin. This makes it an excellent choice for those looking to rejuvenate their appearance and achieve long-term results.
How Long does Profhilo Really Last?
Another question that most people considering Profhilo ask is; how long will the results actually last? When it comes to the question of how long Profhilo really lasts, the answer is that it depends on a few factors.
If you receive two treatments, one month apart for example, then you can expect the results to last for up to six months. Additionally, your individual biology and lifestyle choices can impact how long Profhilo lasts in your system.
For example, if you have particularly sensitive skin, the effects of Profhilo may not last as long as someone with less sensitive skin. Keep in mind that while Profhilo is considered a very safe and effective treatment, it is not permanent.
Also, a knowledgeable plastic surgeon will only give you the green light to proceed with Profhilo if you have realistic expectations about the longevity of the results. Other than the expectations, there are also a few factors that may make you a good candidate or not for Profhilo. These include;
- Your skin laxity: This treatment is suitable for both men and women with mild to moderate signs of aging skin. It’s especially popular among patients aged 30-50 years. So your plastic surgeon will need to assess your skin condition to see if you are a good candidate for Profhilo.
- The number of injections: The number of injections you’ll need will depend on your skin condition and the degree of correction you desire. Most patients usually need 2-3 injection sessions, spaced one month apart.
- The side effects: Generally, Profhilo is a very safe treatment with minimal side effects. The most common side effects of Profhilo include temporary localized reactions which may include issues like redness, swelling, and bruising on the areas where you got the injections around your neck. These usually resolve within a few days.
- Your general situation or health condition: You should not receive Profhilo if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. You should also let your plastic surgeon know if you have any history of allergies, bleeding disorders, or skin infections.
- Your budget: Profhilo in Singapore is a premium treatment and is not covered by health insurance. The average cost of Profhilo ranges from $1000 to $1200 for each syringe.
What Happens when Profhilo Wears off?
Since Profhilo isn’t permanent, most people aren’t really sure what they’d look like when the results wear off. Now, to begin with, during your Profhilo treatment, a highly concentrated form of hyaluronic acid is injected into your skin.
As explained before, this helps improve hydration, promote collagen production, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The results are long-lasting, natural-looking, and can help you feel more confident in your appearance.
When Profhilo wears off, its effects will slowly start to fade away. It can take up to 6 months for the full effects of Profhilo to disappear. However, many people report that they still see some benefits from the treatment even after six months.
The thing to keep in mind with any injectable treatment is that its effects are not permanent. So, if you stop having touch-up treatments, your skin will eventually return to how it was before you started.
To ensure that the results of your treatment last even longer, it would be best to visit your plastic surgeon after every 6 to 9 months. During these follow-up appointments, your plastic surgeon will assess your skin condition and see if you need a touch-up treatment.
Touch-up treatments can help to maintain the results of your Profhilo treatment for even longer. Additionally, touch-up treatments can also help to improve the overall appearance of your skin.
The Bottom Line
Profhilo is a very safe and effective treatment for mild to moderate signs of aging skin. It can help to improve hydration, promote collagen production, and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. The results of Profhilo are long-lasting but are not permanent.
