Profhilo Injection


Profhilo, is a bioremodelling treatment consisting of 100% chemical free, natural Hugh hyaluronic acid concentration (64mg/2ml) injected into the face, suitable for men and women as well as offering skin benefits for patients of all ages.

Profhilo is not a dermal filler, due to the way it has been made and its action. It acts as a bioremodelling and hydrating treatment and unlike filler which stays in place to provide volume and contour , Profhilo spreads extensively under the skin stimulating collagen and elastin, thus attracts water in the deeper layers of the skin and improves appearance of ageing signs such as appearance of crepe skin, fine superficial lines and sagging skin.

The ultimate benefits include:-

  • A hydration boost, providing a refreshing, radiant glow for tired, dull ageing skin
  • Restoration of firmness, tone and tightening of the skin
  • Improving any skin laxity/sagging skin providing a lift

    Procedure : Precise injection points are injected into the deep layers of the skin area being treated.
    Procedure time: 30-45 minutes
    Common treatment areas: Include the face, neck and décolletage
    Benefits: Well tolerated procedure, non-permanent, providing skin hydration, restoration of firmness, tone and tightness of the skin, creating a lift and improving sagging tissue.
    Pain/discomfort: minimal, may cause some stinging at the time of injection
    Pre-treatment preparation: Avoid alcohol at least 24 hours prior to treatment. Avoid aspirin, ibuprofen or anti-inflammatory or blood thinning medications ideally 2 weeks before treatment. Treatment is not recommended 14 days either side of Covid-19 vaccine or booster.
