What is Profhilo?

What is Profhilo?

It’s not a dermal filler, it’s not Botox.  We reveal all about the entirely new category of injectable hyaluronic acid treatment taking the aesthetic industry by storm.

Profhilo has been the secret weapon of beauty insiders and beauty editors for a little while now; promoting radiance and hydration as well as correcting crepey, wrinkled skin that’s becoming saggy and lax, it’s easy to see why beauty journalists are raving about it. Even American beauty editors are hopping on planes to make pilgrimages to the UK whilst they wait (not-so-patiently) for its imminent U.S launch.

At The Skin to Love Clinic, we too have been eagerly awaiting this treatment to hit the clinic. It’s not like any treatment we currently offer (and we offer a lot of treatments) and we’re not disappointed.

  2. What is bio-remodelling?
  3. How Does it Work?
  4. How long does it take to work?
  5. How is it different to a dermal filler?
  6. What do I look like after the Treatment?
  7. Is it safe?

So, What is Profhilo?

The treatment is made of injectable hyaluronic acid (much like a dermal filler) which improves skin quality and treats skin laxity. Profhilo is produced in a special way which means not only does it hydrate and act like scaffolding within the skin, it also triggers a response in the tissue known as ‘bio-remodelling’ which smooths, tightens and gives your skin an inner glow. Literally.

In short, the treatment remodels skin laxity and battles crepiness. It is not a replacement for fillers and Botox and can be used in combination with these other treatments or as a stand-alone treatment. Profhilo benefits the skin quality rather than the muscle movement which causes wrinkles (Botox treats this) or for the loss of volume in the fat pads and filling specific lines (fillers treat these concerns).

Profhilo Treatment

Profhilo stimulates collagen and skin hydration

What is bio-remodelling?

This is a process that is triggered in the skin to create lots of new, bouncy collagen and elastin which helps to combat the signs of skin ageing such as lines and wrinkles, crepiness, and dull, thinning skin and improves skin laxity and encourages skin rejuvenation.

How Does It Work?

Profhilo uses an incredibly pure form of synthetic hyaluronic acid which is injected strategically into the upper layers of the skin with a very small needle. Unlike hyaluronic acid used in filler treatments, this hyaluronic acid is very runny (think honey-like) and effortlessly disperses into the skin where it has a ‘scaffolding’ action on the tissues, hydrates and begins its bio-remodelling process to improve skin laxity.

Profhilo and bioremodelling

How long does Profhilo take to work?

The results aren’t immediate as this is a 2-part treatment; each session is 30 days apart from one another. In those 30 days after each session, your skin works hard, producing new, bouncy collagen and elastin to give your skin a firmer, smoother, plumper complexion. Full results 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 session.

What is the difference between Profhilo and dermal filler?

The only similarity between dermal fillers and Profhilo is that they’re both made from natural hyaluronic acid which is injected into your tissues.

Fillers are quite thick hyaluronic acid gels used to restore volume and definition to areas such as cheeks and lips, as well as smooth out specific wrinkles such as nose-to-mouth lines. Profhilo has a runnier consistency than fillers and is injected only into the upper layers of skin to hydrate and have a ‘scaffolding’ effect within the skin, as well as improve the quality of your skin thanks to its ability to trigger bio-remodelling.

The Times beauty journalist, Olivia Falcon, describes it brilliantly: “Imagine your skin is a bed: rather than plumping up the pillows (the effect fillers have on the skin), Profhilo increases the thread count of the sheets (your skin).”

What do I look like after the treatment?

There is no downtime; immediately after the procedure, you can see small bumps, much like an insect bite or bee sting, at the site of the injection. These are very easy to cover usually and can take up to 24 hours to settle. Just a single course will show significant tissue improvement due to the chemical cross-linking agents profhilo stimulates in your skin.

The innovative injection technique used during a Profhilo treatment means that only 5 small injections are needed on each side of the face meaning that the treatment is quick and comfortable. Some adverse reactions reported in these cosmetic procedures include bruising or prolonged swelling. However, prolonged swelling occurs rarely due to the very fine needles used in the treatment sessions.

Is Profhilo safe?

The treatment is biocompatible due to its pure grade hyaluronic acid which is free of additives, therefore reducing side effects and offering greater safety. To date, over a million treatments have been administered all over the world and nobody has had a serious reaction to the treatment.

Despite the incredibly high hyaluronic acid content it has a low inflammatory profile, and pro-healing properties and is backed by clinical studies.

Profhilo & Hyaluronic Acid

Profhilo FAQ’s

How Long Does It Last?

+

How long do the results last? The improvements to the firmness, elasticity and overall quality of your skin should last up to 6 months, this is due to the slow release of hyaluronic acid in your skin and the resulting increase in collagen and elastin production.

The treatment improves your skin tone, texture, hydration and overall radiance. Profhilo helps to increase skin firmness and elasticity and promote healthier and youthful-looking hydrated skin.

It also increases the amount of collagen, a naturally occurring substance, in your skin. These anti-wrinkle injections can produce results that can last for up to six months due to the stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid.

Is Profhilo a Dermal Filler?

+

Profhilo also contains HA, the key difference between these two treatments is that it doesn’t add volume or change the structure of the face. Whereas, Dermal fillers are used as lifting and volume adding beauty treatments.

Does The Treatment Work?

+

Yes, there are no real restrictions as the non-surgical injectable treatment can be used when treating skin laxity, to prevent signs of crepey or ageing skin and to intensely hydrate the skin. Some ask does profhilo work, or is profhilo worth it? And to this, we say, yes.

The injection sites produce a slow release of Hyaluronic Acid, whilst dermal fillers are more intense on your skin, profhilo injections will give you youthful skin over the next few weeks after your treatment session.

It is one of the more popular non-surgical aesthetic treatments available in the beauty market today. It differs from dermal fillers and other filler treatments in that it reduces fine lines by helping to increase your collagen and elastin levels, both of which are naturally occurring substances.

It gives you a skin glow or luminous skin by injecting stabilised injectable Hyaluronic Acid into the upper layers of your skin. Reviews as well as before and after profhilo photos are a great way to see how the treatment works.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

+

Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally, and as a substance that is naturally present in the human body. It is well known for its skin benefits, especially alleviating dry skin, reducing sagging skin and an uneven skin tone, the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and crepeyness.

This acid is used in both treatments and dermal filler treatment options to smooth your skin’s surface, give you tighter skin and a youthful appearance. It also has intense hydration properties and when used in procedures, reduces the appearance of ageing and sagging tissue.

    I had an excellent Hydrafacial which was recommended to me by Jane. I had my treatment with Nikki, who was so friendly and made me feel comfortable from start to finish. She was so professional and gave me all the information about each step of the facial. She struck the perfect balance between getting to know me/building a rapport, and also giving me the chance to switch off and relax. It was a lovely treatment and I’m so grateful to Nikki for all her knowledge and skill. My skin felt amazing afterwards and I received so many compliments about my “glowing skin”! Thank you for making it such a personable experience. We also added on the Slimyonik treatment which was so lovely and relaxing. I was able to add this on last minute after being recommended by Kerri. Again, tailoring the treatment to me personally added so much to my overall experience. I’m so glad I added this to the treatment and would recommend the skin to love clinic to anyone. Thank you Nikki, Jane & Kerri.

    10/10 - outstanding advice and treatment from Jane at Skin to Love. I had a burst capillary on my nose which I was covering for 2 years. With one consultation and one course of treatment Jane removed it. I should have consulted her sooner. Jane is now my ‘go to’ skin adviser. Quality service and exceptional value for money. Thank you

    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.

    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.
