The Cotton Thread Exfoliation is an exclusive technique developed by Pietro Simone, based on a family secret taught by his grandmother, the benefits of this extraordinary exfoliating ritual with lymphatic drainage reveals velvety smooth, radiant and supple skin.

An integral and thorough technique of the facial is the dry massage which combines deep tissue manipulation with connective tissue stimulation causing muscle stimulation and revitalisation in many different levels of the skin.The result is that skin is sculpted, lifted and re-oxygenated and the active ingredients of Pietro’s skincare range are more easily absorbed.

The combined facial aesthetics of this facial with Profhilo® creates a beautiful, refreshed, youthful complexion and due to the composition of this product this combination treatment is suitable for any age or skin type.

The treatment is a new approach to anti-ageing with the key to its results lying in its only ingredient – Hyaluronic Acid. The treatment delivers a dewy and plumper-looking complexion, firmer and lifted contour, enhanced hydration, and better tissue and scarring repair with minimal downtime and minimal side effects.

Profhilo® has a unique formulation of high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid – and when injected into skin – it stimulates the skin, counteracting skin laxity and improving and restoring firmness of the skin. It is best to think of Profhilo® as a ‘bio-stimulation’ treatment, something that stimulates the body into renewal.

Dr. Apte revealed. “I am delighted to have this amazing opportunity to work with Pietro Simone – combining his expertise and knowledge of skin and skincare and my knowledge of facial anatomy and injectables I can offer the patient a synergistic and innovative result for a truly unique facial journey which results in not only lymphatic drainage but also the repositioning of the fascia and ultimate bio remodelling of the skin using Pietro Simone skincare and Profhilo®.

The Pietro Simone Anti-Ageing Cotton Thread Revitalising Facial is £249 whilst Profhilo® is £300 per treatment with two treatments recommended, spaced four weeks apart. The exclusive combination treatment of the Pietro Simone facial and two courses of Profhilo® is priced at £750.
