Profhilo is an injectable treatment to deeply hydrate your skin, improve skin texture & elasticity with immediate tightening effect
Profhilo injections re-model the skin which could be said to “cure” wrinkles rather than “fill” them.
Profhilo is a pharmaceutical grade, ULTRAPURE hyaluronic acid which stimulates the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid in your skin.
Skin is hydrated & tightened with a smoother texture. Skin feels firmer & lifted.
Profhilo treatments have been described in the media as “injectable moisturiser” as skin feels super hydrated, smoother, firmer
Treatment is pleasant with only five individual injection points on the face. The effect of the injections triggers a natural healing response which uses the hydrating hyaluronic acid to produce healthy new collagen for more elasticised, youthful skin.
Where can you inject Profhilo? Face | Neck | Upper Chest | Hands | Upper / Inner Arms
Profhilo is not a dermal filler – it does not add fullness to the face – this makes Profhilo injections popular with cautious patients who don’t want to look like they have had any “work done” to their face.
Profhilo injections help to improve overall skin quality and can be a useful first step before proceeding to target deeper lines or restoring facial contours.
Each syringe contains 2ml of product – 1ml is used on each side of the face. Additional syringes would be needed for forehead or neck for example.
Profhilo can improve skin quality to face, neck, decolletage upper chest) backs of hands and inner arms.
Two treatments one month apart for optimal results – some clients may require additional treatments depending on age, lifestyle & initial skin quality.

What happens during treatment?
After your consultation local anaesthetic cream may be applied to numb the area if required but treatment is quick and without discomfort.
Your face will be gently marked with the injection locations. You’ll be in a reclined position whilst the Profhilo is carefully and slowly injected into the skin.
WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER DERMAL FILLER INJECTIONS?
Following your dermal filler treatment, it is important not to touch the treated area or apply make-up for at least six hours. This is to reduce the risk of injection-site infection.
Please bear in mind that immediately after treatment, some common anticipated injection-related reactions can occur. These reactions are temporary and typically resolve within 7-14 days. However, in order to allow the skin to recover more efficiently, the following advice may prove to be useful:
1. Redness – A clean, light make-up can be applied to cover any redness after the initial six hour recovery period.
2. Swelling – Do not expose the treated area to intense heat (e.g. sauna, steam room and sunbathing) or to extreme cold for one week following treatment. A clean cool pack can be applied directly to the treated area. It has been reported that non-prescription anti-inflammatory analgesia (NSAIDs*) may prove useful in the reduction of swelling so long as you are medically suitable to take them. However, bruising may be enhanced and/or prolonged with the use of NSAIDs*.
3. Bruising – If you are using aspirin or similar medication, be aware that the likelihood of bruising may increase. It has been reported that Arnica** cream and/or tablets help to minimise bruising. Arnica cream can be applied directly to bruising and may help the bruise resolve more quickly. Make-up can be applied to cover bruising following the initial six hour post treatment period.
4. Discomfort – Following treatment, the area can feel tender from the injection. Non-prescription analgesia** can be taken.
5. Itching – Following treatment the treatment area may feel slightly itchy for 7-14 days. Non-prescription anti-histamines* may reduce itching.
