WHO IS IT FOR?
Profhilo is an excellent treatment choice if you are suffering from skin laxity, signs of skin ageing, looking to increase the levels of collagen in your skin, or simply looking for an overall improvement in skin quality and hydration
If you have lax skin
If you have ageing skin
If you have dull skin
If you have dehydrated skin
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Administed via special 'bio aesthetic points', Profhilo works by stimulating four different types of collagen and elastin, the building blocks of youthful, plump skin. The slow release of the high hyaluronic acid concentration results in a tightening, brightening, and lifting effect. Profhilo is not a bio-revitaliser, skin booster, or dermal filler and rather, has a category all to itself: Profhilo is a bioremodeller - literally remodelling the skin from within.

WHAT IS PROFHILO?
PROFHILO has been described as the 'holy grail of skincare, containing one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market to 'cure' wrinkles instead of simply filling them: boosting and hydrating the skin alongside remodelling ageing and sagging tissues. PROFHILO is exceptionally pure due to a unique and patented manufacturing process which does not involve the use of chemical cross-linking agents to bind the chains.
IS PROFHILO A DERMAL FILLER?
HOW DOES PROFHILO WORK?
PROFHILO stimulates four different types of collagen and elastin to result in significant skin improvement by a slow release of hyaluronic acid, tightening and lifting your skin as well as resulting in improved skin brightness, smoothness, and hydration.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
As PROFHILO is administered using a special 'Bio-Aesthetic-Point' technique it leads to overall facial rejuvenation, improving:
Nose to mouth lines (nasolabial folds)
Mouth to cheek lines (marionette lines)
General loss of volume
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
PROFHILO is administered as a 2 session course, 30 days apart to maximise results.
Extreme ageing may need 3 sessions.
To maintain your beautiful results, a repeated 2 course session is recommended every 6 months.
ARE THE RESULTS INSTANT?
No. Unlike dermal fillers which are instant,you can expect to see results slowly over a period of 4-6 weeks.
HOW LONG DO RESULTS LAST?
The effects of PROFHILO lasts approximately 6 months - hence a 2 course session is recommended twice a year to maintain your results.
DO I NEED AN ALLERGY TEST BEFOREHAND?
No allergy testing is needed.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
PROFHILO administration using the BAP technique is very quick, and can be done in your lunch-break! All in all it takes around 15 minutes..
IS THE PROCEDURE ITSELF PAINFUL?
No aesthetic treatment should not be 'painful'. PROFHILO is injected in tiny amounts using ultra-fine needles. Nevertheless, we offer complimentary topical anaesthetic cream as standard.
IS THERE ANYTHING I SHOULD - OR SHOULDN'T DO - PRIOR TO THE TREATMENT?
We advise you not to drink alcohol or take Ibuprofen within the preceding 24hours of your appointment, as this can increase the risk of bruising.
IS THERE ANYTHING I SHOULD OR SHOULDN'T DO AFTER HAVING PROFHILO?
Avoid alcohol and vigorous exercise for 48 hours following your treatment.
ANY RISKS OR SIDE-EFFECTS?
Most common risks and side effects are associated with the injection itself - that is, pinprick redness, pinprick bleeding and pinprick bruising. These side effects tend to resolve within a few days, but can last up to 14 days following treatment.
As with any type of dermal filler, there is an extremely small risk of vascular / arterial occlusion. The chance of this happening is extremely small, and there are only a handful of cases worldwide with millions of treatments. Rest assured that as medical professionals, we are specifically trained in the anatomy of the face to minimise this risk even further.
