Profhilo is made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar chain molecule found in skin and throughout the body, identical across species. Hyaluronic acid attracts and binds water in the skin, providing volume and hydration, but also ‘cushions’ and supports collagen and elastin fibres and also provides a medium, or carrier, for the efficient transport of chemical messages between the cells. Profhilo contains a high concentration of hyaluronic acid, exceptionally pure because its unique and patented manufacturing process does not involve the use of chemical cross-linking agents to bind the chains.

Rather than adding volume like traditional hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Profhilo is a ground breaking treatment, it remodels ageing skin, stimulates collagen and tightens, lifts, hydrates and improves tone.

Profhilo delivers great results as a treatment on its own or in combination with other aesthetics treatments currently on offer.

Profhilo FAQ's

How does Profhilo work?

Although the majority of dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, Profhilo is not a dermal filler.

Profhilo is a unique Hyaluronic acid based patented technology that uses dual action complexes released slowly into the skin to hydrate, remodel, firm, plump and smooth the skin with long lasting results.

Profhilo diffuses within the tissue after injection and over the period of 4 weeks it stimulates 4 different types of collagen and elastin. It doesn’t need to be massaged and leaves no nodules. Profhilo is injected into the skin in a specific pattern depending on the area to be treated.

Two treatments are required, 4 weeks apart. The first to stimulate, the second to ‘boost’ and ensure longevity.

Who is suitable?

This treatment is suitable as both a corrective and preventative solution to again. However after the age of 30 the structures and hydration levels in the skin start to decrease so this is a good time to consider age prevention treatments such as Profhilo that will stimulate these structures to renew.

Where can this be used?

Profhilo is a rejuvenating treatment to skin laxity smooth fine lines and wrinkles, improving creepiness and skin texture. It can be used almost anywhere, the common areas are:

Face

Neck

Chest

Hands

Inner Arms

Please note: Any injectable procedure will only be undertaken after your face to face consultation with one of our medical practitioners, during which a full assessment will be carried out and full list of cautions and contraindications discussed.

What results should I expect?

Optimum results from treatment will be visible four weeks after the course of Profhilo, which involves two injectable treatments four weeks apart. Clients can expect to see an intense hydration with glowing skin and fine lines minimised. You’ll notice smoother, tighter skin. Even for those clients with very wrinkled skin, an improvement in the texture is undeniable.

The treatment can be repeated after six months in cases where more repair is desired.

How Long Will it Last?

Longevity does vary between individuals, but results are expected to be gained over a period of 4-6 weeks and last for approximately 6 months. If you choose not to maintain the results with further treatment, your skin will return to its pre-treatment state over time.

Are there any risks or side effects?

Profhilo was launched in February 2015 in Italy and has been used worldwide ever since. Over 150,000 patients have been treated so far with no adverse reactions reported. From a safety perspective, Profhilo is highly biocompatible. That’s because it is made from ultrapure, natural Hyaluronic Acid and is stabilised without the addition of chemical cross-linking agents. This reduces the risk of adverse reactions so the downtime is minimal, side effects are mild and temporary e.g. redness, pain, swelling possible bruising.
