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'm claustrophobic so didn't like having my eyes completely covered, however, Jane was so patient & understanding & dealt with the situation brilliantly so I could have the treatment. It was a so easy in the end, took minutes, & nothing to worry about at all.

    I cannot recommend the team the innovation and treatments more highly than at the Skin To Love Clinic. They are at the cutting edge of beauty and have new ways and procedures that make your skin look beautiful. I've spent many years on Harley and Wimpole street and assumed you couldn't get this level of investment and treatments anywhere else but the Skin the Love clinic not only offer every top treatment but the Jane and Sue are so skillful and have a real eye for what will work for you. Their mini thread lift is incredible as is their 'vampire' treatment but skin since I have moved to St Albans has improved dramatically

    I have several issues with my skin and have been working with my doctor to deal with them. He referred me to a Dermatologist who advised on the treatment I needed. It took me a while to find the right place with the level of expertise that I needed and The Skin to Love Clinic ticked all of the boxes. My first experience with The Skin to Love Clinic was about 2 years ago. I had a consultation with Jane and immediately knew I was in good hands. I had a series of Fraxel laser which dealt with the issue as well as improved the quality of my skin. I am now dealing with a different issue and without hesitation made an appointment with Jane. What a relief to know that once again, I will be in the best hands and get the most appropriate treatment for my skin, not only dealing with the issue but also improving the health of my skin at the same time.About 4 years ago, I had threads from a well known Clinic in Harley Street. The process was extremely painful, left me with a lot of bruising, a disfigured face and took at least 6 weeks to recover. For the first 1 - 2 weeks I could hardly open my mouth, getting my toothbrush into my mouth was painful.2 weeks ago (with much trepidation) I had threads at Skin to Love. The difference was remarkable. This is a cosmetic procedure so when the threads are inserted, there is some discomfort. However, it was a far cry from the extreme pain from the Harley Street clinic. I had 1 pale yellow bruise about the size of 50p, no disfiguration and went out for dinner that night! My face was tender to touch for about 1 week but definitely not painful. I could see the results straight away and as time passes, it gets better. Thank you Jane for being so patient with me. I was so scared but now know I didn't need to be.

    Exceptionally positive experience:* A consultation is required to determine whether the requested treatment is suitable for me. This reassured me of their expertise and integrity (that they wouldn't just push any treatment on me)* Specialist Jane is clearly an expert on the Clear&Brilliant treatment and provided me with a comprehensive insight in the procedure + follow-up care and answered all my questions* Tomorrow I'll receive a check-in call, which shows their level of attentiveness* Reception staff is very friendly, welcoming and helpful* So far my Clear and Brilliant treatment looks good, will see results in 2-4 weeks

    I made the mistake of buying a product called Eyesential; an under eye enhancer which temporarily erases puffiness, fine lines, dark circles and wrinkles in minutes and lasts for up to 8 hours. I used this product for a period of 7 years. During this time, the skin under and around my eyes became thinner, reddened, chronically dry and intensely wrinkled. I thought there was nothing I could do and would be left like this. I felt so depressed. Then one day when I was in The Skin to Love Clinic having treatment for Laser Hair Removal; I was informed about Thermage for the very first time. I now have this procedure done yearly. Jane has brought my skin back to its original state and more. My confidence has come back and I feel a so much happier. This treatment really works!

    Emma is so professional and kind. At an initial consultation with her on a viral wart on my face, Emma explained my options and the procedure carefully and thoroughly. Afterwards I tried various lotions and wart removal products, but to no avail. Three months later I saw Emma again. It only took her a few minutes to surgically remove my wart. It was done with such a precision that my skin has been recovering really quickly and well. I highly recommend Emma!

    Would recommend, had a consultation by the nurse , very informative and all staff are extremely knowledgeable of their treatments. Not pushy in selling products or services , the look and feel of the store is very warm and welcoming. I am looking forward to getting treatments there.Update in 4/10/2021 - after going to mobile therapists and now here, I must say there is a big difference ! much much more professional and great customer service - I have had anti wrinkle injections and was reassured this will work and it has! ( I had deep frown lines) worth the bit of extra money for sure!
