Profhilo

Treatment description

2 appointments at Aesthetics by Stephanie are required, 4 weeks apart

 

Profhilo® is an injectable skin treatment made from highly concentrated, highly purified hyaluronic acid (HA). Far less viscous than hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, Profhilo®’s runnier consistency means that as it is injected into the skin, it spreads within a 2cm radius of the injection site.

 

Profhilo® is injected into 10 specific areas of the face, known as the BAP (bio aesthetic points). 5 injections of 0.2ml are administered on each side of the face. The product then spreads under the surface of the skin where it immediately hydrates deep within the skin, due to the hydrophilic (water-loving) properties of the hyaluronic acid.

 

Profhilo® also acts as a ‘bio-remodeller’. It gets broken down after around 28 days, but prior to breaking down, it stimulates significant collagen and elastin synthesis, resulting in plumper, tighter, smoother, more supple skin.

First time having any kind of treatment and very pleased. I was debating botox or filler and Stephanie was both professional and friendly, talking through all options to help me make my choice.

The clinic is clean, modern and welcoming. A little nervous, I was soon put at ease and most of all I like that Stephanie provides a natural look and doesn’t go overboard with too much product. The procedure was over in minutes and results almost instant, what a difference. I will definitely be back at Aesthetics by Stephanie.

Frequently Asked Questions

Profhilo® wouldn’t replace botox as it doesn’t stop muscle contraction which is what causes the wrinkles in those areas, it is more for skin rehydration, giving some plumping and tightening effect to the cheeks and mid face.

Profhilo® is recommended for adults who feel their skin has begun to sag, lose overall volume and fullness. Profhilo® can be used on the face, neck, décolletage, hands, arms and body to refresh and rejuvenate skin.

Profhilo® is NOT suitable for those who are wanting to replace lost volume in specific parts of their face, or those who want to alter the shape of their face or features. Additionally, it is not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women.

Profhilo® can be used with caution in those with blood disorders or those who are immunocompromised.

Those with active skin infections are also advised to wait until infections have cleared.

Obviously, Profhilo® is not suitable for those with a hyaluronic acid allergy.

The procedure is usually very well tolerated with a small amount of discomfort. After your treatment, you may experience minor bruising and swelling at the injections for site for about 24 hours. Mild discomfort is common and this can be managed and we provide guidance and support throughout your treatment journey.

Your skin will look better hydrated almost immediately after treatment. You won’t see the collagen elastin’s benefit until at least six weeks after your first treatment.

The best results will appear 4-6 weeks after your second treatment.

Profhilo® has been in use worldwide since February 2015. Over 300,000 patients have been treated so far, with no adverse reactions reported. Side effects (e.g., redness, pain, swelling) are mild and temporary.

Profhilo® it is made from ultra-pure, natural hyaluronic acid and stabilised without chemical cross-linking agents; this reduces the risk of adverse reactions, so the downtime is minimal.

Profhilo® is a rejuvenating treatment that can smooth fine lines, wrinkles, skin crepeiness and improve skin texture in the following areas:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Decolletage
  • Arms (bingo-wings)
  • Elbows
  • Hands
  • Knees
  • Smokers lines and fine lines around the mouth
  • Under-eye wrinkles
  • Fine lines around the eyes
  • Wrinkly cheeks
  • Crepey hands
  • Abdomen (stomach)
  • No makeup for 6 hours after treatment
  • Refrain from any facials for two weeks
  • No heavy exercise for 24 hours after treatment
  • Be gentle when washing the filled area of your face, neck, chest, or hands
  • Try to avoid unnecessary touching of your face for the first 24 hours after treatment

Profhilo® is not the same as a dermal filler.

Although both contain hyaluronic acid, Profhilo® does not have the same thick viscosity as a dermal filler. In contrast, Profhilo® is a water-like gel with a similar constancy to honey and is injected in small amounts across the face. It spreads beneath your skin, stimulating collagen and elastin to improve skin tone, texture, and elasticity. The result is an overall more youthful, hydrated, glowing complexion.

Profhilo® will enhance an entire area rather than fill one specific line or fold like a dermal filler. Profhilo® can flow freely through the deep skin layers in a way that dermal fillers cannot, and it won’t produce lumps and bumps. Profhilo® is an excellent product for areas like the neck, hands, or arms where fillers are generally not used.

While it’s true that this treatment doesn’t directly target face wrinkles like some other options, it can still contribute to a smoother complexion by boosting your skin’s hydration and elasticity. Profhilo works by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin in your skin, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.


Here are three key points to remember about how Profhilo affects wrinkles:

  • While not specifically designed for wrinkle reduction, its effects on skin hydration and elasticity indirectly help minimise their appearance.
  • It promotes collagen production, which is crucial for maintaining skin’s firmness, thus helping prevent future wrinkle formation.
  • The increased hydration provides an instant plumping effect that makes your skin appear smoother.

Injectable treatments such as Botox or Profhilo are generally considered safe when administered by a trained professional. These treatments have been extensively researched and used worldwide for several years now. However, it’s critical to remember that everyone’s body is unique and may respond differently to these procedures.

Yes, Profhilo can be used on all skin types. However, it’s crucial you discuss your skin condition with a professional to determine the best treatment for your specific needs.
