PROFHILO is a popular non-surgical facelift option in our aesthetic clinic.
Unlike Dermal Fillers which target specific areas of volume loss in the face, PROFHILO delivers overall facial rejuvenation for a balanced aesthetic result.
PROFHILO is often favoured by many patients due to its gradual, natural results and incredible effect on hydrating, firming & brightening the skin.
PROFHILO offers a safe, effective, skin rejuvenation for those patients looking to improve skin quality, hydration and restore radiance. Due to its unique properties, PROFHILO also helps to reverse the signs of skin ageing such as skin laxity (sagging skin) and thinning of the skin layers which occur due to the natural ageing process as collagen production is reduced.
Due to the high levels of Hyaluronic Acid PROFHILO stimulates and enhances the production of collagen & elastin to firm and tighten the skin of the mid-face, perioral area, jawline. The unique benefits of PROFHILO include:
PROFHILO is biocompatible as it is composed of a highly pure grade Hyaluronic Acid produced by bio-fermentation. The composition of PROFHILO is unique with 64mg of Hyaluronic Acid within the 2ml syringe.
REDUCED RISK OF SIDE EFFECTS
Due to PROFHILO’s high purity and absence of additives, this treatment offers greater safety and therefore reduced side effects of swelling and bruising. There is little to no downtime required following treatment with PROFHILO allowing patients to continue with work and daily activities immediately after treatment.
The unique injection technique of only a maximum of 10 small points allows for a safe, effective procedure with minimal discomfort. The treatment with PROFHILO takes between 10-15 minutes.
Visible results after only 2 sessions (1 month). The patented technology of PROFHILO offers a prolonged duration of action.
HOW DOES PROFHILO WORK?
In terms of injectable aesthetic treatments, PROFHILO is the missing link to common facial rejuvenation treatments such as Botox and Dermal Fillers. PROFHILO naturally stimulates the production of 4 different types of collagen & elastin to significantly improve skin quality, reduce lines & wrinkles and contour the face.
PROFHILO is an injectable anti-ageing treatment designed to address skin that is losing its elasticity and firmness with age. The high concentration Hyaluronic Acid is injected just below the surface of the skin where it disperses quickly to boost hydration in the skin.
The results delivered by PROFHILO develop gradually over the weeks following treatment allowing for natural skin rejuvenation. Two treatments of PROFHILO are recommended one month apart for optimum results with the full result seen one month after the second treatment session. For the treatment of some areas of the body such as the neck or hands, three treatments may be required to give the best result for your skin.
The unique properties of PROFHILO are a true breakthrough in anti-ageing medicine. Not only does PROFHILO firm and plump the skin in a way that neither Botox or Dermal Fillers can, it effectively remodels the dermal tissues to deliver superior skin rejuvenative effects resulting in smoother, brighter, hydrated skin. As time passes these effects are enhanced and can last up to six months, depending skin type and lifestyle.

IS PROFHILO SUITABLE FOR ME?
PROFHILO is safe, effective, skin bio-remodelling treatment that naturally stimulates the production of collagen & elastin to significantly improve skin quality, reduce lines & wrinkles and contour the face. The ideal age for PROFHILO Treatment is 40-50 years however PROFHILO offers exceptional results in both younger and older patients wishing to prevent skin laxity, improve skin quality, reverse the signs of ageing.
WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID?
Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance produced in our body and found in the skin, joints and connective tissue. Hyaluronic Acid binds moisture in the skin and aids collagen production. With age, Hyaluronic Acid production slows which can result in the skin looking dull and dehydrated with fine lines and wrinkles forming.
In Medical Aesthetics, Hyaluronic acid is best known as a ‘Dermal Filler’ and is usually used to give volume to lips, smooth deep facial lines or to contour other areas of the face. PROFHILO contains one of the highest concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid available for an aesthetic treatment which explains the incredible hydrating effect in the skin and it’s ability to significantly improve skin quality.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PROFHILO & DERMAL FILLERS?
PROFHILO is a popular non-surgical facelift option in our DERMAUNIQUE CLINIC. Unlike Dermal Fillers which target specific areas of volume loss in the face, PROFHILO delivers overall facial rejuvenation for a balanced aesthetic result.
Due to the development process of Hyaluronic Acid which thermally bonds, rather than chemically, the PROFHILO treatment acts as a high performance hydrator and not a ‘filler’. Its gel like consistency distributes smoothly and evenly without the formation of any lumps – a potential risk with traditional Dermal Fillers. This means it can be used on areas which are difficult to treat with traditional fillers, such as the neck and upper arms. PROFHILO’s structure also allows it to flow over an extended area to boost hydration and smooth or ‘remodel’ the skin.
PROFHILO is often favoured by many patients due to it’s gradual, natural results and incredible effect on hydrating, tightening and brightening the skin. As PROFHILO naturally stimulates 4 types of collagen in the skin it offers superior skin rejuvenating properties that cannot be attained with other injectable treatments such as Dermal Fillers or Anti-Wrinkle Botox injections.
From only two treatments in your initial course of PROFHILO, we expect to see significantly improvements in skin quality, softening of lines & wrinkles and facial contouring. Whilst Dermal Fillers are the preferred option for replacing specific areas of loss volume and fat in the facial structures, only PROFHILO can firm the skin and reshape the facial frame naturally with great results.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY PROFHILO TREATMENT?
Often called a ‘lunchtime facial treatment’, PROFHILO is a quick treatment – taking about 10 minutes with no downtime. It is injected just under the skin, using a very fine needle, in ten specific areas; five injection points on each side of the face to deliver optimum results. Some patients describe a bee sting like sensation as the Hyualuronic Acid is injected into the skin. This treatment usually does not require a topical numbing cream prior to treatment.
At our Doctor Led Clinic, we only offer the full PROFHILO treatment protocol which consists of two sessions, one month apart, this is to ensure maximum results are achieved. If signs of ageing are significant, an additional treatment may be recommended four to eight weeks later. We recommend maintenance treatments every 3 months to maintain and enhance the skin rejuvenative effect.
WHERE IS PROFHILO INJECTED?
PROFHILO treatment consists of 10 injections in total, five on each side of the face. By concentrating a defined volume of PROFHILO in the most receptive points, Hyaluronic Acid can diffuse through the skin to stimulate maximum collagen production, creating a natural, balanced refreshed result.
Profhilo is injected into the following areas on both sides of the face:
1. Zygomatic Protrusion (cheekbone)
2. Nasal Base (in line with the nostril)
3. Tragus (in line with the ear lobe)
5. Mandibular Angle (jawline)
CAN MORE THAN ONE AREA BE TREATED WITH PROFHILO IN ONE SESSION?
As well as the classic facial protocol using 2ml of the PROFHILO product to refine skin texture and firm dermal tissue, our clinic offers a range of exclusive treatment protocols to aid skin rejuvenation all over the body. Through Advanced Practitioner Claudine’s experience with this award winning treatment, she has developed several bespoke protocols to help rejuvenate the skin in problematic areas such as vertical lip lines around the mouth and crepey skin cheeks.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS FOLLOWING PROFHILO TREATMENT?
As PROFHILO naturally stimulates the production of 4 different types of collagen & elastin within the dermis of the skin, results develop gradually over the weeks following treatment allowing for natural skin rejuvenation. Two treatments of PROFHILO are recommended one month apart for optimum results with the full result seen one month after the second treatment session.
In terms of expected results, one month following the first PROFHILO session initial skin rejuvenation results include increased hydration, plumping and brightening of the skin. One month following the second PROFHILO treatment expected results include refined skin texture, softening of deeper facial lines as well as an overall improvement in skin quality. For the treatment of other areas such as the neck or hands, three treatments may be required to give the best result for your skin.
IS PROFHILO SAFE?
PROFHILO is safe, effective, skin bio-remodelling treatment that naturally stimulates the production of collagen & elastin to lift and tighten the skin as well as significantly improve skin quality. Due to PROFHILO’s unique properties including the composition of the product and absence of additives, PROFHILO offers greater safety and reduced side effects compared to other injectable treatments.
PROFHILO is biocompatible as it is composed of a highly pure grade Hyaluronic Acid produced by biofermentation.
THE INJECTION TECHNIQUE

REDUCED RISK OF SIDE EFFECTS

HOW MANY TREATMENTS OF PROFHILO WILL I NEED?
