As well as fillers for replenishing facial volume there are fillers for the skin. These rehydrate the skin, add volume, improve texture and smooth out fine lines. Repeated use of these amazing products will prolong the health, function and appearance of your skin.
At Bijoux we can select from two different products; Juvederm Volite and Profhilo.
Juvederm Volite is a cross-linked hyaluronic acid that is injected into the skin itself providing hydration, plumpness and volume to the skin. The treatment is carried out with very fine needles, leaving behind evidence of small blebs that last just a few hours. The results show the following day and last for about six months when the treatment is repeated.
Profhilo is a highly concentrated non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid, is injected into ten predetermined areas of the face. Once injected it smoothes itself out and “runs” thought the tissues providing hydration, freshness and lift.
The initial build-up phase of the treatment requires two treatments one month apart, then the treatments are repeated every six months.
In many ways the results from Profhilo and Juvederm Volite are very similar. Juvederm Volite requires more injections (therefore the risk of small bruises is a little but higher) than Profhilo. Profhilo can leave little bumps at the injection sites for up to 48 hours, unlike Juvederm Volite which settles down almost immediately. Each treatment has its own followers; we provide both.
