Is Profhilo worth it?

Profhilo Reviews: Is Profhilo Worth It?

The importance of feeling good about our appearance became ever-so-apparent during Lockdown (well, lockdowns); there was the realisation that getting dressed, brushing your hair and, if you were feeling fancy, sticking on some lipstick genuinely made you feel like you had a purpose and, yes, it made us feel better.

Is Profhilo Worth it?

Then there was ‘Zoom face’; have you ever been so fed up with looking at yourself in your life? We hadn’t been accustomed to looking at ourselves during every meeting or catching up with friends. The realisation for some that your skin is showing signs of ageing or that you’re looking less-than-fresh swept across the nation and made many wonders “what can I do for my skin?” and had us frantically searching the internet for the ‘best anti-wrinkle cream’.

Our St. Albans-based Clinic had floods of emails asking when we thought we would be reopening our doors and some were even asking if we were allowed to go to their house to give them their usual anti-wrinkle treatment (we didn’t, in case you were wondering).

Profhilo Reviews: Back to (Skincare) Beauty Basics

Anyway, I digress; what has become more apparent than ever is the importance of feeling fresh and confident in our skin. Of course, I could suggest lots of different treatments and how they could benefit your skin in different ways, but a good starting point is to make sure you’ve got some good basics going first of all. By basics, I mean a few staple skincare products you should use at home.

We’ve spoken about these products at some length previously so I’ll pop a link to some posts that you may find useful about keeping your skin plump and hydrated with a hyaluronic acid serum, slowing down the signs of ageing, including hyperpigmentation, with a daily SPF and help to improve breakouts and smooth wrinkles with a retinol cream (aka Vitamin A).

Profhilo Before and After

It is super important to look after your skin with these daily creams from both a health point of view and aesthetically, however, topical creams (no matter how fantastic the ingredients) will have a ceiling on how much they can correct your skin concerns; realistically, we all understand you are unlikely to get the same result from cream as you will from clinical anti-ageing treatments.

So what treatment options are there to give your skin a youthful boost and give you your glow back? One of our favourites here at the Skin to Love Clinic is Profhilo; it was dubbed the ‘injectable moisturiser’ when it launched and had US beauty journalists jumping on the red-eye to sample the treatment (luckily for us, it launched in the UK first). So, what is profhilo treatment? Let’s explore this treatment a little further…

First things first.

Profhilo Reviews & Profhilo Before and After Photos

Who Would Benefit from Profhilo?

There are no real restrictions as Profhilo injectable treatments can be used to prevent signs of crepey or ageing skin and to intensely hydrate the skin. However, it is most commonly used in the Clinic to correct signs of ageing most frequently on the face, neck, chest and hands.

You may benefit from a Profhilo neck treatment if you have lines and wrinkles; your skin lacks elasticity; you have skin crepiness; your skin has become thin and lacks plumpness; your skin has some sun damage; you would like to rehydrate your skin; you are looking for a way to maintain healthy, youthful-looking skin.

Collagen and Elastin: Is Profhilo better than Botox?

One of the reasons there was such a buzz about the Profhilo treatment when it first became available is because there had been no treatment like it before. Profhilo was a completely revolutionary, new category of injectable treatment so it cannot be compared to Botox (or filler) as its purpose is entirely different.

Profhilo is not similar to Botox in any way other than that it is an injectable treatment. Anti-wrinkle injections, AKA Botox, work on the muscles (not the skin) to relax them and reduce the movement of those muscles which in turn create lines such as those on your forehead and crow’s feet around your eyes.

Profhilo is also not a filler; dermal fillers are generally made from quite a thick hyaluronic acid gel which is used in areas that have lost volumes, such as your lips or cheeks, and to fill wrinkles such as those that can form around the top lip (‘smokers lines’) or the marionette lines. The purpose of Profhilo is to ‘bio remodel’ your skin (see below).

Profhilo Reviews & Profhilo Before and After Photos

The Difference Between Profhilo and Dermal fillers?

It’s quite easy to see how there’s some confusion surrounding the difference between Dermal fillers and Profhilo. After all, both are made out of hyaluronic acid (HA). As mentioned before, fillers use a thick HA gel which is injected into depressions in the skin, like wrinkles, or to rebuild volume in areas that have lost it, such as in the cheeks or under the eyes.

Profhilo is also made of HA but it is extraordinary in that it combines both high and low molecular weight HA. Which is then thermally stabilised, turning the two molecules into one compound (stay with me, that’s the science bit done).

Profhilo Reviews & Profhilo Before and After Photos

The reason this is important, and differentiates it from the ‘normal’ HA in your fillers is that once Profhilo is injected into your skin (it goes into the upper layers of your skin) its gorgeous honey-like consistency allows it to slowly spread throughout the area you want to rejuvenate, triggering ‘bio-remodelling’-stimulating four different types of collagen and elastin in your skin as it goes, resulting in a smoother, firmer, more youthful-looking, glowing skin.

Profhilo Before and After 

This is a personal decision. If you are looking for the type of results surgery, such as a facelift, can give you then possibly not; although your skin will benefit from the deep hydration and stimulation of collagen and elastin you will not achieve the same results from this non-surgical treatment as you would from surgery.

If you are looking for glowing skin and a more natural-looking way to improve your skin and signs of ageing, then Profhilo absolutely worth exploring with a skincare specialist to see if this is the best anti-ageing option for your concerns.

One of our clients who had the treatment has shared her Profhilo review and Profhilo before and after photos with us.

Profhilo Results: How Long Does it Take to Work?

The results aren’t immediate as using injectable profhilo as a method of skincare entails two treatments that are 30 days apart, each set of injections consists of five small injections on each side of your face. You may experience small bumps, much like an insect bite or bee sting, at the injection sites. These are very easy to cover usually and can take up to 24 hours to settle.

Profhilo Reviews & Profhilo Before and After Photos

 

Profhilo injections come in the form of two treatments and are a month apart from one another. In the 30 days after each set of hyaluronic acid injections, your skin works hard to produce new, bouncy collagen and elastin.

Profhilo benefits your skin by giving you a firmer, smoother and plumper complexion. The full results of your profhilo injections are seen only after the second session as your skin produces more and more collagen and elastin, however, changes are often noticed after the first set of hyaluronic acid injections.

    Fabulous place. From the moment you step through the door you are warmly welcomed. Natalia is very knowledgable and friendly. She really listened to my concerns sensitively and gave me all the options available without pushing me to make a decision. I was given all the time I needed to make my choice and when I went back for my treatment it was such a relaxing experience. I went away knowing exactly what I needed to do as after care and I highly recommend Skin to Love

    Had my first session of Sculptlift, with Jane. I had so many questions and Jane explained in simple terms enabling me to understand what to expect. The procedure was painless and Jane talked me through every step. I was left without bruising which was suprising as I usually bruise quite badly. I am looking forward to seeing the final results.

    I cannot recommend this establishment enough. The receptionist was lovely and greeted me with a bright smile. Emma was friendly, kind and put me right at ease. After seeing how much my issue bothered me, she offered me an appointment the same day during her break to sort out my problem. I’m so happy and relieved that my issue is 95% sorted. Thank you so much Skin to Love! You’ve certainly got a customer for life now! I’ll be telling all my friends about this little gem.

Nikki was fantastic—she meticulously explained each step of the treatment, ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable experience. The thoughtful touch of a follow-up call post-treatment added a personalised touch that I truly appreciated. Thank you, and I'm definitely looking forward to more sessions!

    I had 3 moles removed (one on my face, and two on my body) by Emma. She did a wonderful job and they are healing up beautifully. She is clearly incredibly knowledgeable and I was well informed about the process. Not only that but she put my mind at ease fantastically as I was feeling quite nervous. We were able to laugh and chat throughout the appointment and I actually left in a better mood than when I went in! That is definitely Kudos to Emma (and the lovely staff at the front desk who always made me feel so welcome). Thank you so much.
