Profhilo is an injectable treatment used for skin rejuvenation and hydration. It is made of a high concentration of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found in our bodies that helps to maintain skin elasticity and hydration.
Unlike traditional dermal fillers, Profhilo is not used to add volume or fill in lines and wrinkles. Instead, it works by stimulating the body's natural collagen and elastin production, which helps to improve skin tone, texture, and hydration. This makes it a popular treatment for people who want to improve the overall quality of their skin, rather than just targeting specific areas.
Profhilo is typically administered through a series of injections into specific areas of the face, such as the cheeks, temples, and jawline. The treatment is quick and relatively painless, with minimal downtime required afterwards.
An initial cycle of two treatment sessions with a 4-week interval is recommended. This is followed by maintenance treatments if necessary.
Most people start to see results within a few weeks, with full results visible after about 2-3 months. The effects of Profhilo typically last for around 6-9 months.

The Profhilo Journey
Step 1: Initial Consultation
During the initial consultation, we assess your skin concerns, discuss your treatment goals and determine if Profhilo is the right treatment for you. We take a detailed medical history, evaluate your skin type and condition and answer any questions you may have about the procedure. If Profhilo is deemed suitable, we will create a personalised treatment plan for you.
Step 2: Pre-treatment
Before the treatment, you will be advised to avoid alcohol, smoking, and certain medications that may increase the risk of bruising or complications. It's important to follow these pre-treatment instructions to ensure the best possible results. We will also provide
you with any additional pre-treatment care instructions specific to your case.
Step 3: Treatment
On the day of the treatment, we cleanse the treatment area then Profhilo is injected into specific points in the skin using a fine needle. The treatment typically takes around 30 minutes. Profhilo helps to hydrate, stimulate collagen production, and improve skin elasticity, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
Step 4: Aftercare
Following the treatment, you may experience some redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites. These side effects are generally mild and subside within a few days. You will be provided with aftercare instructions, such as avoiding sun exposure, applying ice packs to minimise swelling, and refraining from strenuous exercise for a brief period.
Step 5: Follow-up
A follow-up appointment is typically scheduled four weeks after your initial treatment. This appointment allows us to assess your progress and perform the second treatment.
Step 6: Maintenance
After the two initial treatments, it is recommended to have ongoing maintenance treatments every six months to achieve longer lasting results. Regular maintenance treatments will help you maximise the rejuvenating effects of Profhilo and keep your skin looking youthful and healthy.
