What is Profhilo® ?

Profhilo® is the first BDDE-free stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) based product for treating skin laxity. Profhilo® has one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market (64 mg / 2 ml). Hyaluronic acid is injected into the skin, stimulating the reproduction of new collagen and elastin. This results in improved skin tone, texture, hydration, and radiance. It also increases firmness and elasticity for healthier, rejuvenated skin.

Profhilo delivers great results as a treatment on its own and in combination with other aesthetics treatments.




How does Profhilo® work?

Profhilo® is a non-surgical procedure that works by injecting a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid underneath the upper layers of the skin using with a very thin needle. Profhilo® contains one of the highest concentrations of stabilised hyaluronic acid on the market.This type of hyaluronic acid filler is different to that used in filler as it is an extremely runny consistency. The thin consistency of this product allows it evenly and effortlessly disperse into the skin and reacts with your own tissue to instantly boost hydration.

  • Wrinkles (e.g forehead lines, crows feet, smile lines)

  • Sagging and excess skin

  • Dry, dehydrated skin 

  • Skin that has lost its elasticity and shape. 

Profhilo® can also be used as a preventative measure for those who are younger. This can be extremely effective in preventing wrinkles forming and maintaining youthful looking skin. 

Are Profhilo® Treatments safe?

Profhilo® treatments are among the safest and risk-free injectable treatments when administered by a suitably trained, qualified and experienced medical practitioner. Profhilo® is one of the safest injectable treatments due to the fact that it is composed of hyaluronic acid which is well tolerated by the human body. Our bodies naturally produce hyaluronic acid anyway, so higher levels of the acid do not trigger many potential side effects, and no long-term side effects. This is because the body metabolises and welcomes the treatment.
