There are many similarities between Profhilo and SuneKos but, in our experience, SuneKos is generally better suited for skin with more advanced signs of ageing.
Both treatments are a new type of injectable treatment completely different from skin boosters, mesotherapy and dermal fillers; they trigger a process in the skin called bio remodelling.
Profhilo contains high concentrations of hyaluronic acid (HA), which deeply hydrates the treated tissue to help with signs of skin ageing and sagging skin as it stimulates your natural collagen and elastin production. The Clinics’ practitioners use Profhilo to refresh the skin, firm and smooth skin and give skin its’ ‘glow’ back.
Profhilo is used to treat the neck or mid to lower face only; the Profhilo treatment is made up of two separate sessions spaced approximately thirty days apart. Some people require a third session if their signs of ageing a more developed; this would be discussed upon assessment. Profhilo treatment is generally repeated after 6 months to maintain the results if desired.
The SuneKos product contains HA as well as powerful amino acids. Amino acids are proteins which help to firm and strengthen the skin whilst the HA deeply hydrates the treated tissue. SuneKos stimulates fibroblast activity in the Extra Cellular Matrix (ECM), which results in new collagen and elastin being produced.
The Clinics’ practitioner’s preference is to use SuneKos to refresh, firm and smooth the skin and give skin its’ ‘glow’ back in those who have more advanced signs of skin ageing. SuneKos is able to treat signs of ageing on the forehead and around the eyes as well as the centre and peripherals of the face. SuneKos is able to treat concerns around the mouth, for example, lines above the top lip as well be used to volumise the tissue. SuneKos has 2 strengths of the product; SuneKos ‘200’ has a low molecular weight which can be used around the eyes and forehead and SuneKos ‘1200’ which has a medium molecular weight and is used in the centre of the face and peripherals of the face.
A treatment of SuneKos is usually made up of four sessions, which are spaced seven to ten days apart. The SuneKos treatment can be repeated after approximately eight to nine months to maintain the results if desired.
