Profhilo ®


The first of its kind, Profhilo® is a revolutionary 'beneath the skin' hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment, made with the patented NAHYCO® technology. This results in a unique hyaluronic acid injectable gel, which has a prolonged stimulating activity on the dermal cells. When injected into skin, Profhilo® stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity and improve and restore firmness of the skin.


Which body areas can Profhilo® be used for?

The most common areas of treatment include the face and neck and can also be used for the décolletage, hands, arms, knees and abdomen area where it would effectively treat skin laxity. The treatment is suitable for men and women as well as offering skin benefits for patients of all ages.

Does Profhilo® hurt?

As Profhilo® is injected just under the skin using very fine needles in pre-determined points, it is relatively painless; you may feel a short sting or scratch, but this is short-lived. Patients can opt for topical pain relief or anaesthetic before a Profhilo® treatment, but it is usually not needed. The procedure is very quick, taking only about 10 minutes.

Is there any downtime?

There is no downtime with Profhilo®. However, it’s advisable to avoid alcohol, aspirin or anti-inflammatory medication in the 24 hours prior to the treatment. Vitamin C and Vitamin E can also increase the likelihood of bruising, but it is fine to use 48 hours after. Immediately afterwards, it’s important to avoid wearing make-up and strenuous exercise such as going to the gym, swimming or extreme sports and hot steam rooms and saunas for at least 24 hours.

Can I go in the sun after Profhilo®?

You will need to avoid excessive sunlight for 48 hours after Profhilo® and wear a high SPF sunscreen. It’s important to know that if you expose your skin to the sun, this will only have a detrimental effect on your skin quality and hydration. Investing in good habits such as wearing SPF and a wide-brimmed hat when going into extreme sunlight, as well as having regular treatments such as Profhilo® will help your skin hugely, in the long-run.

How long do results from Profhilo® last?

Results from Profhilo® can last anything from 6 to 12 months, depending on your individual reaction and metabolism of the product. 

Am I suitable for Profhilo®?

We use Profhilo® to create an airbrushed skin effect on patients of all ages. It is especially popular with patients over the age of 30. If you are not happy with your skin laxity, have crêpey or thin skin as well as other visible signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles, you could be suitable for Profhilo®.
