What is Hyaluronic Acid-Based Profhilo Treatment?

Profhilo is an innovative skin booster that enhances the skin’s hydration and tightness by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin in the body. It’s hyaluronic-acid based formula provides the skin with much needed moisture for a dewy glow. 

Top Benefits of Profhilo Treatment

Skin Hydration Boost

Profhilo is a hyaluronic acid-based injectable treatment. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body and is responsible for keeping the skin hydrated. As a result, Profhilo can moisturise the skin, giving it a dewy finish while reducing dry, rough patches and improving skin tone. 

Improved Skin Texture and Tone

By stimulating collagen production, Profhilo treatment sessions rejuvenate the skin, which can improve its texture and tone. In addition, the hyaluronic acid in Profhilo can reduce dry, rough patches of skin for smoother skin. 

Radiance and Luminosity

Through the combined effects of hydrating and rejuvenating the skin, Profhilo helps the skin radiate a natural, healthy glow.

Versatility in Treating Skin Laxity in Various Areas

Profhilo is often used across the face and neck, but can also be used across other parts of the body including the decolletage, arms, and hands to improve the skin quality.

Minimal Downtime and Discomfort

Profhilo is a non-invasive hyaluronic acid treatment, and requires no downtime, meaning patients can return to daily activities immediately. In addition, treatments are well tolerated and numbing cream can be applied to the injection sites to minimise any discomfort. 

Who’s A Good Candidate For Profhilo Treatment

Due to it’s vast array of benefits, Profhilo can be used to treat a range of common skin concerns, making it a great option for many patients. In general, any patient looking to improve the skin’s quality and minimise issues such as texture, mild skin laxity, and dull or dry skin can be an ideal candidate for Profhilo. 

Who’s Not A Good Candidate?

Profhilo treatments do not add volume to the skin, meaning that patients with moderate or severe skin laxity may be suited to alternative injectable treatment, such as dermal fillers

Patients who are allergic or sensitive to hyaluronic acid or other ingredients in Profhilo, will also not be eligible for treatment. Our doctor will discuss this with you prior to treatment. 

Comparing Profhilo to Other Skin Treatments

Dermal Fillers

Dermal filler treatment can add volume to targeted areas of the face for a refreshed and more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers can be used to smooth out the appearance of the fine lines and wrinkles that occur during skin ageing, fill hollow areas of the face, and enhance the shape of different facial features.

Profhilo is a skin booster, and does not add volume to the skin like fillers. Instead, Profhilo can enhance the quality and tightness of the skin for a healthier, more hydrated appearance. 


Exosomes are an aesthetic treatment designed to treat common concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, hair growth and rosacea, and sagging skin, among others.

Both Profhilo and exosomes treatment sessions stimulate collagen production. However, unlike Profhilo, exosomes work by interacting with nearby cells to trigger a variety of other cellular processes like cell proliferation and tissue repair.

Profhilo is therefore best suited to patients who want subtle skin tightening, hydrating, and rejuvenation effects.

Plenhyage XL

Both Profhilo and Plenhyage XL can be used to create a glowing complexion. However, Plenhyage is made from polynucleotides, whereas Profhilo is hyaluronic acid-based.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Anti-wrinkle injections are non-surgical aesthetic treatments that can help to prevent and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They work by reducing the movement of the muscles that cause dynamic lines to become deeper, static wrinkles. On the other hand, Profhilo helps to subtly tighten the skin across the face, and improves the quality of the skin for a youthful glow.

Our Profhilo Treatment Process

Initial Consultation

During your initial consultation with our specialists, your skin will be assessed to determine your suitability for Profhilo. You will be asked about your aesthetic goals to better understand how Profhilo can help your skin. 


Profhilo injections consist of two treatment sessions, spaced four weeks apart. Injections are made across five different points on both sides of the face, ensuring that the product is evenly covering the skin. 

Recovery Guidelines

After Profhilo treatment, you will be able to return to daily activities immediately, but should ensure that you adhere to all of the recommendations given by your doctor to promote a smooth recovery. 

Expected Timeline for Results

You will be able to see some results one week after the first treatment, with skin appearing smoother and more hydrated. However, you will need to wait for collagen and elastin to be produced before you can fully appreciate the effects of Profhilo, which can take up to 4-6 weeks after the second treatment

Potential Side Effects of Profhilo Treatment

After your treatment, you may experience some mild side effects such as swelling and redness. These typically dissipate within a few days. 

Tips for Maintaining Skin Post-Profhilo Treatment

After your treatment, you will be provided with thorough aftercare guidance to ensure a smooth recovery. Make sure to stick to a consistent skin regime, and ensure that you keep the injection sites clean until they heal. 

The results from Profhilo are long-lasting, though you may wish to undergo a maintenance session after 6-9 months to continue treating skin laxity.
