Profhilo® Skin Boosters
As one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market and as an ideal skin booster, Profhilo® not only boosts and hydrates the skin, but also remodels ageing and sagging tissue.
The most common areas of treatment include the face and neck and can also be used for the décolletage, hands, arms, knees and abdomen area where it would effectively treat skin laxity. The treatment is suitable for men and women as well as offering skin benefits for patients of all ages.
Ultra-pure hyaluronic acid is precisely injected into the area being treated. Unlike wrinkle-reducing and dermal filler treatments, Profhilo® stimulates collagen and elastin, attracting water in the deeper layers of the skin.
As a stabilised product, the activity on dermal cells will last longer than that of a non-stabilised gel. During this time the stimulation of four different types of collagen and elastin takes place by slow release of hyaluronic acid. The stimulation results in significant tissue improvement.
The first of its kind, Profhilo® is a revolutionary ‘beneath the skin’ hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment. This results in a unique hyaluronic acid injectable gel, which has a prolonged stimulating activity on the dermal cells.
When injected into the skin, Profhilo® stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity and improve and restore firmness of the skin

Frequently asked questions
Profhilo® is a revolutionary new treatment designed to provide hydration to the skin. It uses a unique concentration of Hyaluronic Acid which penetrates deeply through the skin to accelerate the production of collagen and elastin, creating plumper skin. Profhilo® works across the entire face rather than focusing on one area, and is therefore fantastic for those looking to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and achieve an overall more youthful appearance.
Profhilo® is not better than fillers, and vice versa. Each of these treatment options provides different approaches, so there will be one treatment that works best for your skin and your desired outcomes. Generally, if you would like to achieve a more holistic result that can be seen across your face, Profhilo® is the best treatment for you. However, if you would rather make small changes to certain areas of your face such as your cheeks, dermal fillers are more suitable for you.
Profhilo® is an anti-ageing hydration treatment and as it contains high levels of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid (HA) it helps to boost hydration beneath the surface of the skin as well as having the added benefit of encouraging the natural production of collagen and elastin that give the skin it’s structure.
Two treatment sessions, four weeks apart are needed.
Profhilo® simply enhances and improves the texture, tone and elasticity of the skin. It won’t plump targeted areas but will give a healthy glow.
You will be able to see a more hydrated appearance immediately and be able to see an improvement in the skin’s texture, tone and elasticity after 8 weeks.
In most cases, the results can last for approximately 6 months depending on the individual. In some, it may last longer, however in others it may be considerably less time due to many factors including lifestyle, metabolic rate, and also the amount of alcohol one consumes.
From a safety perspective, Profhilo® is highly biocompatible, owing to the fact that it is made from natural hyaluronic acid and stabilised without the addition of chemical cross-linking agents. It is considered to be safe, effective and “a true breakthrough” in anti-ageing medicine. Due to the high purity of this product and absence of additives, Profhilo® offers greater safety and reduced side effects.
Profhilo®is currently the only product capable of stimulating your natural production of all four types of collagen and elastin – those vital substances which are lost from the skin as we age. So it is accurate to say that it can effectively cure certain kinds of wrinkles from within the skin, by boosting and utilising your natural processes.
