Profhilo

Profhilo is an injectable anti-ageing treatment made from hyaluronic acid for skin that is losing its elasticity and firmness with age. It can be used on the face, neck, décolletage, arms, hands and knees, or any part of your body where the skin shows visible signs of ageing.

Hyaluronic acid is best known as a ‘filler’ and is usually used to give volume to lips or to contour other areas of the face. Profhilo differs from the usual fillers in a number of ways due to its structure which allows it to flow over an extended area to boost hydration and smooth or ‘remodel’ the skin.

Because Profhilo is thermally bonded and not chemically bonded it acts as a hydrator not a filler. It is injected just underneath the surface of the skin where it disperses quickly and reacts with your own tissue to instantly boost hydration. Due to its gel like consistency Profhilo distributes smoothly and evenly without the formation of any lumps – a potential risk with traditional fillers.

This means it can be used on areas which are difficult to treat with traditional fillers, such as the neck and forehead.  Profhilo boosts elastin and collagen production which results in remodelling the skin and giving it a plumper, smoother and firmer appearance.

How many treatments are needed?

The full treatment consists of two sessions, one month apart. A further session may be recommended after approximately three to six months in order to prolong the effect.

Profhilo can be used on its own or in conjunction with other fillers, laser treatments or Botox to help boost results from the other treatments.
