Profhilo is a revolutionary new non-surgical skin laxity treatment to address facial lines and wrinkle, but also skin laxity, improving tone, texture and hydration. The treatment is aimed at patients who have visible signs of ageing skin. For Profilo to be effective for some you may need to have a course of three treatments. If you are under 45 with good skin elasticity, two treatments of Profilo may  be sufficent.

As we age, our skin produces less collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are the building blocks which make up plumped up healthy skin. Profhilo uses advanced patented technologies to help remodel the skin. It is made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA). It is a surface hydrator.

So what exactly is Hyaluronic Acid and why is it so beneficial?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring, gel-like substance in our skin which acts like a sponge. It is holding in moisture and making our skin appear plump, smooth and hydrated. Unfortunately, as we get older the body slows down its production of this vital ingredient. This results in a visible loss of firmness, pliability and suppleness.

This is why  the cosmetic industry is seeking ways to replenish and restore the skin by adding hyaluronic acid to creams, serums and treatments.

Profilo effectively stimulates the production of natural collagen and elastin to re-energise and renew the skin. It stimulates four different types of collagen and elastin due to the slow release of hyaluronic acid, and it is this stimulation that results in significant improvement of tissue quality. Profhilo, at present, is the only product capable of stimulating the natural production of all four types of collagen and elastin, making it truly unique.

Profhilo continues to be a fantastic choice for those wanting to combat ageing, dull or tired looking skin and loss of facial volume.

Compared to dermal fillers, Profhilo enhances stem cell reproduction. It restores both skin and fat layers to their natural state, and stimulates the body to produce four collagen types. Unlike dermal fillers it does not provide volume. Profhilo can also be used in a number of areas, where fillers are unsuitable such as body areas.

How does it work?


A skin laxity treatment, Profhilo uses patented technologies engineered for ‘skin remodelling’, a revolutionary concept of ‘curling’ wrinkles rather than ‘filling’ them. It effectively stimulates production of both your natural collagen and elastin to renew your skin from within. Taking as little as 10 minutes to complete, this hyaluronic acid treatment works by stimulating 4 different types of collagen and elastin due to the slow release of hyaluronic acid, and it is this stimulation that results in significant improvement of tissue quality.

Rather than replacing volume or creating a volumetric lift like other dermal fillers Profhilo is able to create volume in the tissue where it is needed due to its high spread ability.

This characteristic of Profhilo makes it an ideal treatment for improving elasticity and tightening areas such as the neck, around the mouth and hands without giving an artificially enhanced appearance.

Most clients request Profhilo treatments in the submalar area (between the cheek and chin) to tighten skin and lift jowls. Profhilo will result in significantly noticeable skin tightening and give you a lifting effect between your cheek and chin in just 12 weeks (you will see a gradual improvement throughout). You may require three treatments four weeks apart.


We start losing a significant amount of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid after we reach 30, and it is at this age that we start to consider preventative treatments.

This is the time when many people consider their first anti-wrinkle injections as the first lines start to appear. If you feel your facial tissue quality has dropped significantly, and that you may look older for your age, but are not ready for dermal fillers yet, Profhilo may be the best treatment for you. There is no age upper limit either. 

If you’re looking for very subtle results, this treatment delivers. However, if you’re looking for a lifting of the face, neck or any other area, then a combination approach with fillers or threads could be recommended.

  • Profhilo is not a filler – It is a new Hyaluronic Acid gel, one of the latest innovations to treat the skin laxity by skin bio-remodelling
  • It actually compliments all other aesthetic or cosmetic procedures by significantly improving the tissue quality
  • It has one of the highest concentration of HA on the market
  • Awarded the Aesthetics Award for Product Innovation of the Year



How long do the results last?


The results of Profhilo treatments can last up to roughly 6 months, however, this may vary by patient - particularly depending on skin type and age. The Profhilo treatment can work independently as a treatment on its own or in combination with other cosmetic treatments, namely because it is a natural product that is being injected.

After this six-month period or when you begin to see the treatment’s effects wearing away, it is recommended that you can top up treatments if you wish to continue.

Comparison of Treatments

Profhilo Vs Dermal Fillers


Dermal fillers are a popular treatment used to add volume and dimension to specific facial features. Most commonly, dermal filler is injected into features such as the cheeks, lips, and chin of clients to enhance or modify certain features and improve confidence. Since dermal fillers are used to alter the face, not necessarily you then it, dermal fillers are increasingly popular amongst young adults.

Meanwhile, Profhilo is a broad and more subtle treatment which is injected and then disperses throughout your skin tissue. The remodelling substance itself is far less thick than that of dermal fillers and it spreads throughout the face, which dermal fillers do not. By targeting the entire face, it creates a more youthful and rejuvenated look, thus making it more appropriate and popular amongst the aging population. For this reason, Profhilo offers a more subtle alternative to dermal fillers.

Similarities Differences.


Both dermal fillers and Profhilo are injectable treatments and can be administered by trained practitioners. Profhilo targets the entire face or can be used on other problem areas such as the neck, hands, and cleavage area. Whereas dermal fillers target a specific facial feature.


Profhilo and dermal fillers are both charged at similar prices and require regular top ups Profhilo seeks to replenish and hydrate the skin itself and improve skin quality. Meanwhile, dermal fillers are used to add depth, dimension, and shape to certain facial features.


Dermal fillers also contain Hyaluronic acid, which is useful for combating aging processes. This is the main ingredient in Profhilo treatments. Dermal fillers are very popular amongst the younger generations, meanwhile Profhilo is specifically designed to combat aging so attracts the older generations.
Dermal fillers are far more dramatic in what they achieve since they can drastically change and remodel a facial profile. Comparatively, Profhilo improves the look of skin.


Frequently Asked Questions about Profhilo Treatment.


Can you have Profhilo Treatments if you have Botox and fillers?


Yes, it is possible and safe to have Profhilo treatment if you already have or plan to get Botox and other dermal fillers. This is the case because Profhilo is a natural acid injection and these works well (often even better) alongside other treatments since Profhilo treatments are designed to improve the condition of your skin, not relax muscles, or add volume in certain areas. As a result, these are compatible.

Do Profhilo treatments hurt?

Profhilo skin treatments do not really hurt much at all. The doctor that is completing the treatment will typically use numbing cream to prevent any pain at all. 


What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is renowned as a super ingredient amongst beauty brands and is commonly referred to as the secret behind flawless, youthful, and hydrated skin. It is a sugar created naturally by our body and within our skin which carries water and produces a plump, refreshed look for human skin.

How long does Profhilo take to work?

Although Profhilo treatments can instantly rejuvenate and hydrate skin, it typically takes 4 to 6 weeks to work properly since the treatment injected requires some time to spread and trigger collagen and elastic production within your body. Since everybody is different, the time can vary between a month to two months.

How long does Profhilo last?

The results of Profhilo treatments can last up to roughly 6 months, however, this may vary by patient - particularly depending on skin type and age. The Profhilo treatment can work independently as a treatment on its own or in combination with other cosmetic treatments, namely because it is a natural product that is being injected.

Are post-injection massages necessary?

No, post-injection massages are not necessary to spread the treatment throughout the facial tissue since this occurs naturally through facial and muscle movements.

Which areas are treatable with Profhilo?

Profhilo is a very flexible treatment, and it can be injected in most body parts, including those that are typically difficult to inject. It is most frequently injected into:

• Cheeks

• Temples

• Forehead

• Hands

• Arms

• Neck

• Elbows

• Knees

Is Profhilo a dermal filler?


Are Profhilo Treatments safe?

Profhilo treatments are among the safest remodelling treatments available because Profhilo is very biocompatible as it is not mixed with other chemical agents and is made from an acid that is naturally produced and stabilised by our bodies anyway. It carries a high concentration of hyaluronic acid, which means it bears little risk, if any to those that have the treatment.


This specific treatment is not available under the name of something else, so it is worth avoiding duplicate versions of Profhilo treatments. Profhilo is a patented technology which the unique chains of hyaluronic acid each containing varied molecular weights, meaning the treatment itself is very specific and designed to replicate the unique structure of the natural product. This intricate and approved design is likely far safer than duplicate treatments, so always look for the official Profhilo treatment.
