Profhilo is an injectable anti-ageing treatment made from hyaluronic acid for skin that is losing its elasticity and firmness with age.
What is Profhilo?
Profhilo is an award-winning treatment and innovative approach to anti-aging. Profhilo is an injectable anti-ageing treatment made from hyaluronic acid for skin that is losing its elasticity and firmness with age. Unlike traditional dermal fillers that are developed to provide lift and volume where they are injected, Profhilo spreads throughout the lower layers of the skin to cover a wide area to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles, provide firmness and volume to the skin, improve skin tone and texture and may lead to healthier skin.
It can be used on the face, neck, decollete, arms, hands and knees, or any part of your body where the skin shows signs of ageing. There is an immediately noticeable improvement in skin tone hydration as firmness and lines are minimized. The most commonly treated area is the face, often using a specifically devised technique of injecting 5 Bio Aesthetic Points on each side of the face for the best results, minimal discomfort and a strong emphasis on safety by avoiding important structures and blood vessels.
Hyaluronic acid is best known as a ‘filler’ and is usually used to give lips volume or contour other areas of the face. Profhilo differs from the usual fillers in several ways due to its structure, which allows it to flow over an extended area to boost hydration and smooth or ‘remodel’ the skin.
How does Profhilo work?
Unlike most cross-linked dermal fillers using chemical agents, Profhilo is thermally stabilized and consists of a high and lower molecular weight hyaluronic acid. The low molecular weight portion is responsible for hydration and stimulating new collagen and elastin formation within the skin. In contrast, the high molecular weight component provides support and a scaffolding action.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our body, found in skin, joints and other connective tissue. Its role is to retain moisture in the body and aid collagen production. It can hold 1000 times its weight in water, which makes it ideal for binding moisture in the skin. However, hyaluronic acid production slows with age, and the skin looks duller and dehydrated, with fine lines and wrinkles forming.
Profhilo contains one of the highest concentrations of stabilized hyaluronic acid on the market. Because it is thermally bonded and not chemically bonded, it acts as a hydrator, not a filler. It is injected just underneath the skin’s surface, where it disperses quickly and instantly reacts with your tissue to boost hydration. Over the next four weeks, phase two will kick in as it goes to work, boosting elastin and collagen production. This effectively remodels the skin and gives it a plumper, smoother, firmer appearance.
Due to its gel-like consistency, Profhilo distributes smoothly and evenly without forming any lumps – a potential risk with traditional fillers. This means it can be used on areas that are difficult to treat with traditional fillers, such as the neck and forehead.
Even though Profhilo is made of Hyaluronic Acid, it is not for adding volume but for enhancing skin tone, texture, elasticity and hydration.

What is Profhilo, and how is it different from other dermal fillers?
Profhilo is an anti-aging solution delivered via injections, enriched with a high hyaluronic acid (HA), a compound naturally found in the human body. Contrary to conventional dermal fillers, which are mainly designed to fill wrinkles and add volume to targeted areas such as the lips and cheeks, Profhilo aims to enhance the quality of the skin by working on its deeper layers. It offers a slow release of HA that enhances hydration, boosts elasticity, and stimulates collagen and elastin production. This makes it a versatile treatment for improving skin tone, texture, and overall appearance rather than targeting specific lines or areas.
How many sessions of Profhilo are usually needed for the best results?
Most individuals need to undergo two initial Profhilo treatments spaced roughly a month apart to get the best results. Depending on your age, skin quality, and desired outcome, your practitioner may recommend additional sessions. Each treatment session helps build upon HA’s slow release, providing cumulative benefits for your skin. Follow-up sessions may be suggested every six months to maintain the benefits.
Can Profhilo be used in conjunction with other aesthetic treatments?
Indeed, Profhilo can frequently be used in conjunction with other aesthetic treatments like Botox or more dermal fillers to provide a holistic facial rejuvenation strategy. Nonetheless, it’s essential to consult a certified practitioner who can evaluate your skin requirements and medical background to determine the most secure and effective treatment regimen.
What are the potential side effects of Profhilo?
While Profhilo is generally considered safe, some common side effects may include mild swelling, redness, and bruising at the injection site. These effects usually subside within a few days. Compared to certain dermal fillers that might include artificial chemicals, the likelihood of experiencing an allergic reaction with Profhilo is reduced. Always consult with your practitioner for a full understanding of the potential side effects based on your medical condition.
Is Profhilo suitable for all skin types?
Profhilo is suitable for most skin types and is particularly effective for individuals experiencing skin laxity, dryness, and dull-looking skin. However, a thorough consultation with a qualified practitioner will help determine if Profhilo is the best treatment for your skin concerns and medical history.
What areas of the body can Profhilo treat?
Although Profhilo is most commonly used for facial rejuvenation, it can also treat other areas experiencing signs of aging or skin laxity, such as the neck, décolletage, hands, and upper arms. The treatment stimulates collagen and elastin production across a broader area, making it versatile in its applications.
How long do the results of Profhilo last?
While the longevity of Profhilo’s effects can differ among individuals, the results typically persist for six months. Lifestyle factors such as diet, smoking, and sun exposure can influence how long the results last. Regular follow-up sessions are recommended to maintain the achieved benefits.
Is Profhilo treatment painful?
Most patients find Profhilo injections to be quite tolerable. The procedure involves injections at multiple points but usually uses a fine needle to minimize discomfort. Some practitioners may also use a topical anesthetic to improve your comfort during the treatment.
Can men also benefit from Profhilo?
Absolutely. Profhilo is a gender-neutral treatment and offers benefits to both men and women. Men concerned with skin aging, fine lines, and loss of elasticity can achieve significant improvements with Profhilo.
Is Profhilo worth the investment?
The efficacy of Profhilo in improving skin quality makes it a worthwhile investment for many. It’s a versatile treatment that addresses the symptoms and some of the root causes of skin aging by stimulating collagen and elastin production. This provides a more natural and long-lasting effect than other cosmetic treatments. However, the “worth” is subjective and depends on your skin concerns, lifestyle, and expectations. A consultation with a qualified practitioner can give you the information you need to make an educated decision.
