Profhilo® hyaluronic acid injections
Profhilo helps improve skin elasticity to plump, firm and hydrate. Hyaluronic acid penetrates the skin activating your stem cells to produce collagen and elastin for an immediate skin tightening effect.
Often called biomodelling, Profhilo enhances the skin by helping to restore the levels of hyaluronic acid you have naturally. Complementing our Genesis and IPL treatments, you’ll need two treatments, one month apart. Some people may need three treatments. By 12 weeks your skin should be firmer, brighter and refreshed.
We use Profhilo to treat your face, neck, decolletage and hands.
Important information about Profhilo® treatment
Profhilo injections contain high concentrations of hyaluronic acid.
Profhilo injections are used for the treatment of sagging skin, particularly on the face, neck and arms. They are used to improve skin elasticity and to plump and hydrate the skin.
Profhilo should only be administered by trained medical professionals. You will need to pay for this medicine. Normal doctors’ visit fees apply.
Profhilo has risks and benefits
- Incidents of inflammatory reactions (erythema, oedema etc) sometimes associated with itching and pain to the touch may occur. These reactions may persist for 7-10 days. Hardening or nodules may appear at the point of injections.
- In very rare cases, as described in literature, discoloration at the injection point, abscess, granuloma and hypersensitivity after hyaluronic acid injections may occur.
- If the inflammatory reactions persist for more than 7-10 days, you must contact your doctor immediately.
Profhilo and vaccines
For all types of vaccines (the benefits/risk of the vaccine are unchanged). Profhilo injections should not be given if you have had a vaccine in the previous two weeks and for four weeks after a vaccine or you are between the first and second dose of a vaccine (for vaccines with dual doses).
Note: Profhilo treatments last nine-12 months. After this further treatment courses will be necessary.

You will need a round of two treatments, per area, one month apart. Some people need three treatments. Treatment lasts between nine and 12 months, after that retreatment will be necessary.
When will I see results?
Your skin should appear more hydrated, brighter and firmer by 12 weeks.
