What is PROFHILO®?

Unlike Dermal Fillers, PROFHILO® does not add volume, think of it more as a huge boost of hydration from within. This injectable treatment has a very high concentration of Hyaluronic acid which is injected into the skin through five key points on each side of the face.

PROFHILO® works in stages which, for best results, requires two treatments with a four-week interval. You will see results instantly after the second treatment. PROFHILO® remains in the skin for around 28 days, working hard to stimulate four different types of collagen and elastin as it slowly releases hyaluronic acid. Within the first few weeks you will see intense hydration, smoother and tighter skin and a glowing complexion.

Optional Anaesthetic

The first 2ml of PROFHILO® is injected using a technique called BAP (BIO AESTHETIC POINTS). The BAP technique is 5 entry points of injection on each side of the face. This technique, created for the lower third of the face due to its predisposition to dermal atrophy caused by the ageing phenomena, reduces the number of injection sites and the number of visits.

Best results are seen when a further 2ml of PROFHILO® is injected one month after the first treatment. In some cases, where the signs of ageing are more extreme, you may require up to 8ml of PROFHILO® spread over 4 treatments.

Pre-Treatment Advice

It is important that you don’t drink any alcohol for 24 hours before your treatment.

Try to avoid using non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) including ibuprofen and aspirin for 72 hours before your treatment, unless they are required for a chronic medical condition.

Consult your medical practitioner if you have any concerns.


You can have PROFHILO® treatment and continue with your day to day activities following a short two hour rest.

On the day of your treatment we advise you avoid:

  • Wearing make-up
  • Touching the injection sites
  • Physical activity including the gym
  • Sauna or steam-room
  • Swimming

When should I consider PROFHILO®?

We start losing a significant amount of collagen, elastin and Hyaluronic Acid after we reach 30, which means we start to see the signs of ageing in the form of fine lines, wrinkles and slightly lack-lustre skin. At this age, we should start to consider preserving ourselves, therefore PROFHILO® is advised for individuals from around the age of 30 upwards, who wish to target ageing skin.

PROFHILO® is also an excellent choice for you if you don’t want to add volume to specific areas (if this is the case, it is more likely that dermal fillers would be the right treatment for you), as it instead provides volume and hydration across the skin, giving an overall rejuvenated appearance.

There is no age upper limit either. In fact, in older patients, we have often seen more dramatic results. However, if you’re over 60 your treatment does need to be managed carefully – for example, if there are deep folds present or the skin has lost elasticity, then combination treatments that include PROFHILO® may be more suitable. Therefore consultation prior to treatment is so important!

If you’re looking for very subtle results, this treatment delivers.

Where can PROFHILO® be used?

PROFHILO® is most commonly used for facial areas but can also effectively be used for rejuvenating the neck, decollate, arms, knees and hands. Increasingly, the neck is becoming a popular area to have PROFHILO®, due to its ability to help reduce crepe-like skin and sagginess and encourage a firmer appearance.

What is the difference between PROFHILO® and Dermal Fillers?

Due to the way that PROFHILO® is formulated, it is not a volumising treatment in the same way that dermal fillers are and is not used to enhance specific areas of the face (e.g. lips, cheeks, chin). PROFHILO® is primarily a hydrating treatment, and the Hyaluronic Acid it contains is dispersed evenly throughout the face, giving your skin a plumper and firmer look overall.

How long does PROFHILO® last?

The results from PROFHILO® treatments will most often last for up to six months, but results can differ from person to person.

What results can I expect from PROFHILO®?

After just a single course of PROFHILO®, which involves 2 injectable treatments 4 weeks apart, you can expect to see an intense hydration. It makes the skin glow and fine lines can disappear. You’ll notice smoother, tighter skin. Even for those with very wrinkled skin, an improvement in the texture is undeniable. The treatment can be repeated after six months in cases where more repair is desired.

Are there any side effects of PROFHILO®?

Immediately after treatment there may be some redness at the injection site and you may experience some itching or tenderness in the treated area. This will generally disappear within 24-hours.
