What is Profhilo? (Uses, Effects & Results)

What is Profhilo?

Profhilo is an injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) that treats skin laxity and promotes hydration. As a filler, it has one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market and actively stimulates collagen production to create youthful, beautified skin.

Profhilo is the perfect introduction to aesthetic treatments; not quite a filler, this injectable moisturiser not only works to boost the appearance of your skin, but also remodels sagging facial tissue. An anti-ageing formula to leave you looking and feeling like yourself again.

How are Profhilo and fillers different?

Although both treatments utilise the effects of hyaluronic acid, Profhilo and Dermal Fillers are very different treatments.

Profhilo is not a filler; it is an injectable gel that stimulates 4 different types of collagen and elastin that promote elasticity in the skin. Dermal Fillers, on the other hand, are used to change the shape and structure of facial features by remaining under the skin.

Benefits of Profhilo

Profhilo is a highly effective anti-ageing treatment with numerous benefits. These include:

  1. Improved skin texture and tone
  2. Increased elasticity and firmness of skin
  3. Boosted collagen levels to keep skin hydrated for up to 6 months
  4. Visibly reduces the signs of ageing
  5. Non-invasive treatment

Is Profhilo right for me?

Anyone who shows signs of ageing skin and is suitable for dermal filler treatment will also be eligible for Profhilo. This technique is temporary, simple and not quite a filler making it ideal for those who seek anti-ageing treatment but don’t feel comfortable receiving injectable fillers.

It is also suitable for anyone over the age of 18, but the results will be more pronounced on mature skin. Because Profhilo is temporary and maintenance treatment is suggested every 6 months, it isn’t recommended that Profilho is used as a preventive treatment.

Where can you use profilo

Where can you use Profhilo?

Profhilo is most commonly used on the face but can be administered on the neck, décolleté, arms, knees and hands. These areas are particularly susceptible to the signs of ageing, and Profilho is the perfect solution to smoothing out wrinkles and folds in the skin.

How long does it take for Profhilo to heal?

The results of Profhilo will appear up to 8 weeks after treatment, but you will be able to return to work within 12 hours of both initial treatments.

How many Profhilo treatments will I need?

For the most effective results, it is recommended that you receive 2 treatments 4 weeks apart and then return for maintenance treatment every 6 months. Or you could receive a single treatment initially and return for maintenance treatments every 4 months.

Is Profhilo painful?

Profilo is rarely painful although mild discomfort can be expected during treatment. You may experience tenderness and small raised blebs that usually settle within 24 hours.

If you’re nervous around needles then you may experience additional discomfort during your treatment, but rest assured that Dr. Robby Bajaj is committed to providing you with the highest possible level of care. Please feel free to alleviate any worries at your consultation appointment, or at any time during the procedure.

Profhilo complications

The complications of Profhilo are similar to those that occur after injectable filler treatments. These include mild bruising and swelling, and occasionally allergic reactions.

However, if the treatment is administered by a fully qualified practitioner, then you shouldn’t experience any adverse reactions.
