Is Profhilo® a Dermal Filler?
Profhilo® is not a dermal filler, it is very different from all other injectable substances as it has been engineered specifically for “skin bio remodelling”. It is biocompatible as it’s composed from a high-grade hyaluronic acid produced by bio-fermentation. Due to these properties, it can effectively enable the production of both your natural collagen and elastin, causing your skin to renew successfully, from within. Due to its high purity and the absence of additives, Profhilo® offers greater safety and therefore reduced side effects.
What is the downtime?
The downtime is very minimal. Following treatment, there may be signs of redness and swelling however this will usually subside within a few hours or at a maximum, one day.
How many treatments will I need?
It is recommended to have two sessions (one month apart) to achieve optimum results.
In order to maintain results, a treatment session is advised every 6-12 months.
How quickly will I see results?
Results are usually seen after just two treatment sessions, with a one-month interval between them. It is then that the increased firmness, elasticity and overall improved quality of the skin will be visible. Maintenance sessions tend to be required 6-12 monthly depending on the level of correction required, your age and lifestyle.
Why choose Profhilo®?

Profhilo® has a proven safety record and results, and the product was awarded the international Anti-Ageing and Beauty Trophy for ‘Best Skin Enhancement Device’ at the AMEC Congress in Paris in October 2015 and also won the product innovation award and was commended in injectable product of the year at the 2016 Aesthetic Awards.
After the age of 30, our skin cells start to lose collagen, elastin and Hyaluronic Acid causing a loss of volume in our face, dry skin and an increase in lines and wrinkles. If you feel your facial tissue quality has dropped significantly, and that you are showing signs of ageing but aren’t quite ready for Dermal Fillers, Profhilo® is a great way to give your skin a refreshed youthful glow.
Awarded the Aesthetics Award for Product Innovation of the Year, Profhilo® is one of the latest innovations to treat the skin laxity by skin bio remodelling. It’s not a filler, but a new Hyaluronic Acid gel with one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market. The release of hyaluronic acid stimulates four different types of collagen and elastin helping you to combat the visible signs of ageing, providing preventative benefits to younger clients.
Profhilo® is the only product known to stimulate the growth of all four kinds of collagen and elastin, smooth out wrinkles and visibly tighten the skin. Rather than simply just treating the wrinkles which already exist, Profhilo® encourages the growth of elastin to prevent the formation of new wrinkles – effectively remodelling the skin from the inside out.
Profhilo® is injected in five separate points on the face, spreading evenly from these sites to restore lost volume, moisturize the skin and give an overall rejuvenated look. The revolutionary formula contains a stable form of Hyaluronic acid without the addition of cross-linked chemicals that can cause negative reactions in that of a dermal filler. It’s highly comparable within the skin meaning that the risks are massively reduced. It provides more sculpture and shaping than hyaluronic injected via mesotherapy, so this is a perfect option for concerns related to ageing and loss of elasticity.
The beauty of Profhilo® is that it creates natural yet remarkable results. It creates volume in the skin tissue where it is able to disperse safely. As well as being effective in the treatment of wrinkles and ageing skin – it also restores radiance and hydrates the skin from the inside out.
