As we age, our skin can need a little help to retain its youthful glow.
Profhilo will hydrate and lift your skin to reduce sagging and restore radiance.
How Profhilo works
Profhilo delivers very pure, stabilised hyaluronic acid into the skin through a series of small injections.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring chemical which the body uses to retain water in the skin and support the skin’s collagen and elastin.
With age, the production of hyaluronic acid decreases, leading to a dull, dehydrated and sagging appearance.
The result of Profhilo’s intensive hyaluronic acid boost is wonderfully hydrated, tightened and lifted skin.
An example of the improvements which can be achieved with facial Profhilo:
Areas which can be treated with Profhilo
Profhilo can be used to combat the signs of aging in your face (particularly the cheeks), neck, décolletage, chest, stomach, inner arms, hands and knees.
It is particularly beneficial for dealing with general skin laxity and increasing overall radiance.
Example of Profhilo use to improve skin on the neck and mouth:

How Profhilo differs from dermal fillers
Dermal fillers and Profhilo are both made from moisture-boosting hyaluronic acid.
However, dermal fillers are designed to stay in a single place, adding instant plumpness to sagging skin.
Profhilo works differently. It integrates with the skin to trigger your own, natural, anti-aging processes. In addition, Profhilo does not contain synthetic additives, such as BDDE, which minimises the risk of side effects.
Both treatments have different, but equally impressive, benefits.
About your treatment
Prior to your treatment you will receive a free consultation with one of our medical practitioners. They will discuss what you hope to achieve from the treatment, to ensure that Profhilo is the right choice for you.
Your practitioner will also ask you questions about your medical history to check that the treatment is appropriate and safe for you.
During your treatment
When you’re ready to go ahead, the treatment itself will be as quick as 10 minutes, depending on the number of areas to be treated.
Your practitioner will make a series of small injections to administer the treatment. Facial Profhilo, for example, requires only five injections at strategic points around the face.
There may be a slight stinging feeling as the Profhilo is injected, but this will only last a few seconds.
New patients will require two treatments which are four weeks apart for the best results. Depending on your skin type, your practitioner may recommend a third treatment, usually eight weeks after your second one.
After your treatment
You’ll be able to go about your normal life immediately after treatment. Your practitioner will provide you with full aftercare instructions.
You may feel an immediate improvement thanks to the hydrating effect, but it can take a few weeks before you start to notice the real results of your treatment – as the Profhilo encourages your body to produce its own anti-aging collagen and elastin.
After a month you should expect your skin to feel smoother, softer, tighter and plumper. At this point you will need a second treatment to fully stimulate the collagen and elastin production for optimal results.
How long does Profhilo last for?
The Profhilo itself continues to work in your skin for around a month after your treatment, at which point it will have been fully metabolised by your body. By this time it will have stimulated your natural collagen and elastin production, meaning that the rejuvenating effects of your treatment will continue even after Profhilo has been naturally broken down.
After your initial treatments, a Profhilo treatment every six months should be sufficient to maintain the benefits.
Who can have Profhilo
Profhilo is suitable for most people who want to deal with the effects of skin aging.
As with any injectable treatment, we won’t be able to treat you if you are pregnant or breast feeding. If you have any other medical condition or are taking any medications please make your practitioner aware of this.
