SKIN TREATMENT

Profhilo has become increasingly popular in recent years. It’s a more affordable, safe, and long-lasting option than lotions and treatments, helping to plump and rejuvenate the skin. But how does Profhilo compare to other popular skin injectable treatments?

 

What is Profhilo?

Profhilo is the first injectable treatment for skin laxity and crepiness based on hyaluronic acid (HA). It’s a skin-rejuvenation treatment that gives you a radiant, youthful appearance by supporting the development of collagen and elastin and greatly minimises the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

It has one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market, and works to stimulate and moisturise the skin while also remodelling ageing and sagging tissue. Profhilo is appealing because, unlike dermal fillers, it does not change the shape of the face; instead, it creates a fresh, natural look while softening fine lines and wrinkles.

Where can I get Profhilo?

Profhilo is especially effective at treating loose skin around the neck, cheeks, and jowls, as well as other areas where injectables are notoriously difficult to treat, such as:

  • Forehead
  • Temples
  • Mouth and chin lines
  • Neck, chest, and décolletage
  • Hands
  • Upper arms

Click here to find out more.

 

Is Profhilo permanent?

Because Profhilo was designed to work with your body’s natural activity, it is not a long-term solution. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally occurring molecule that aids in the retention of moisture in the skin by encouraging collagen and elastin formation.

As a result, the Profhilo that has been injected gradually degrades over time. The effects of your Profhilo treatment can last for up to six months, depending on the individual.

 

Profhilo compared to other fillers

The injected gel in classic filler procedures such as Juvederm stays in place and volumises the area. Profhilo, on the other hand, increases collagen and elastin formation in the face rather than filling up specific areas.

Profhilo restores aged tissue without volumisation by working in the epidermis, dermis, and superficial fat compartments. It is a regenerative anti-ageing treatment that reverses the ageing process through bio remodelling of the skin, rather than being passive like other skin booster therapies.

Profhilo improves skin hydration and fine wrinkles faster after injection because hyaluronic acid is replenished in the skin. Skin tightening and elasticity benefits are visible after treatment. Profhilo is the only HA filler that does this.

 

Can you have Profhilo and anti-ageing injectables together?

You can get anti-ageing treatments and other fillers in the same location as Profhilo, but it’s not recommended.

Anti-ageing injectables can be used to lessen forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet, and Profhilo can be done simultaneously to target skin laxity of the lower face because it is more successful in addressing expression lines.

 

Can you have Profhilo and fillers together?

Profhilo and Dermal Fillers can be combined to improve brightness, plumpness and give a more youthful appearance. If you have dermal fillers in your cheeks or jaw, you must wait at least two weeks before getting Profhilo injections.

Dermal fillers provide a lifting and volumising effect and are usually utilised to augment a specific area. They do increase the skin’s radiance, but Profhilo offers a more comprehensive approach for overall improvement.

Profhilo
SKIN TREATMENT

Profhilo has grown in popularity in recent years and is excellent for treating skin that lacks volume and suppleness. It’s a cost-effective, safe, and long-lasting alternative to skin lotions and treatments. So, if you want to restore your skin’s youthful appearance and feel, Profhilo could be the solution you’re looking for.

Wondering where you can have Profhilo? Read on to learn more.

 

What is Profhilo?

Profhilo is a bio-remodeling substance. It’s made from stabilised hyaluronic acid, which is injected into the skin to minimise skin laxity. Profhilo is one of the most concentrated hyaluronic acid doses available on the market today (64mg HA per 2ml syringe).

It comprises both high (H-LA) and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid (L-HA), which are thermally bonded together using unique NAHYCO technology. When the two forms of hyaluronic acid are combined, a product with significantly higher lifespan is created than if they were utilised separately.

While this may sound intimidating, hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the body. It can also be found in foods such as root vegetables, soy, leafy greens, and citrus fruits such as oranges. For this reason, it’s one of the most often used ingredients in anti-aging and anti-wrinkle skin lotions.

To put it another way, it’s more like an ultra-effective injectable moisturiser than a filler. Profhilo is most commonly used on the face and neck, where wrinkles and drooping skin are most noticeable. It can, however, be used in any place where firmer, younger-looking skin is desired.

Profhilo is appealing because, unlike dermal fillers, it does not alter the form of the face; instead, it creates a fresh, natural appearance and softens fine lines and wrinkles. So the benefit is that you don’t appear ‘done.’

 

Which Areas Are Treatable With Profhilo?

Profhilo is particularly successful at treating loose skin in the neck, cheeks, and jowls, as well as other places that are notoriously difficult to treat with injectables, such as the:

  • Forehead
  • Temples
  • Mouth and chin lines
  • Neck, chest, and décolletage
  • Hands
  • Upper arms

 

Profhilo Treatment Procedure

The dermatologist will assess your suitability and look for any medical contraindications during your initial appointment. The beautiful thing about Profhilo is that it has no maximum age restrictions and few contraindications because it is a minimally invasive technique.

 

The collagen-boosting liquid is injected into five key spots on your face, called the Profhilo injection points, beginning directly next to the ears on each side, then the nasolabial fold (laughing lines around the mouth), chin, beneath the eyes, and on the tops of cheeks. Each side of the face receives the Profhilo.

The treatment causes a slight stinging sensation that lasts around 20 seconds. So it’ll be over before you realise! There is no downtime necessary because there are no apparent signs of repeated injections, so you may get back to your everyday tasks right away.

Only 2 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart, yield noticeable results. The effects of treatment can last for up to 6 months.

SKIN TREATMENT

Medically reviewed by Eugenia Bonelli. 

Profhilo® is a one-of-a-kind injectable hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule that the body uses to retain water in the skin while also supporting the skin’s plumping collagen and elastin.

It has one of the highest hyaluronic acid concentrations on the market. It moisturises and lifts the skin, slowing the ageing process and restoring young brightness. Profhilo is touted to ‘bio-remodel’ the skin as well as provide moisture. It can elevate the skin and give a wonderfully renewing impact. The injection accomplishes this by stimulating collagen and elastin, which are responsible for the skin suppleness and firmness. Click here to read more about why hyaluronic acid is so effective.

But as Profhilo is now widely available online to purchase, we can imagine that you might wonder why you should choose to have it done professionally. This blog discusses the importance of having your treatment carried out by a professional. Read on to learn more.

 

Is Profhilo Safe?

Profhilo® is very biocompatible in terms of safety. This is because it is created from ultrapure, natural Hyaluronic Acid and is stabilised without the use of artificial cross-linking agents. This lowers the possibility of harmful effects.

If injected properly, side effects are uncommon. Profhilo’s adverse effects are identical to those of other forms of fillers and include minor bruising and swelling. The risks can include allergic reactions and infection, though these are very rare.

 

Profhilo Gone Wrong

If you’re wondering, “can Profhilo go wrong” then it’s reassuring to know the risks of something going wrong are extremely low when Profhilo is administered by someone who is suitably qualified and experienced, like our experts here at DestinationSkin. Profhilo injections, on the other hand, might be dangerous in unskilled hands, for example:

  • If the product is contaminated or injected incorrectly, it might cause serious skin responses. Rashes, excessive swelling, and ulcers are examples of these.
  • Infections caused by poor hygiene might result in lasting face scarring and potentially spread to other parts of your body.
  • If the individual administering the treatment does not sufficiently understand human anatomy, ‌the Profhilo could enter your bloodstream and obstruct it, lowering your blood supply. This may cause the death of the skin (necrosis) and blindness. If they hit an artery, it could result in a stroke.

We strongly advise you to have the injections administered by a properly trained and experienced healthcare practitioner (a doctor, nurse, or dentist). While Profhilo treatments are generally safe, they can be quite harmful in the hands of someone who is not both medically and cosmetically skilled.

 

Why Choose DestinationSkin For Your Profhilo Treatment

Before each treatment, you will meet with one of our experienced medical injectors for a consultation. Your skilled practitioner will be highly skilled and knowledgeable. They will make every effort to fully prepare you for your forthcoming treatment, including providing you with information guides, aftercare packets and answering any concerns you may have.

Profhilo® is the newest must-have treatment to hit the aesthetics industry, and is getting amazing reviews from medical professionals and clients alike! This treatment improves the plumpness and firmness of your skin from within, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles and other symptoms of ageing to give your skin a new lease on life.

What Is Profhilo?

Profhilo is the first injectable hyaluronic acid (HA)-based skin laxity and crepiness treatment. It’s a skin-rejuvenation therapy that leaves you with a beautiful, glowing complexion. With a steady release of HA, this treatment will encourage the development of collagen and elastin, considerably improving the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

It has one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market, and it works by stimulating and moisturising the skin while also remodeling ageing and sagging tissue. Profhilo is appealing because, unlike dermal fillers, it does not alter the form of the face; instead, it creates a fresh, natural appearance and softens fine lines and wrinkles.

Profhilo doesn’t just work to improve the appearance of a single area (e.g., cheeks, lips, jaw line), but rather gives comprehensive facial rejuvenation for a healthy, radiant, and young appearance that will make you feel more you!

 

When Will I See Results From Profhilo?

Profhilo outcomes can be seen about 4 weeks following treatment and can last up to 6 months, however this depends on the person and can be longer or shorter.

You’ll notice a more youthful appearance across your skin, with fine lines and wrinkles smoothed out so they’re less obvious and a plumper complexion. We recommend a total of 3 treatments, spaced out every 4 weeks, for the best results.

Click here to discover all of the areas you can have the treatment.

 

Profhilo Aftercare

You can receive Profhilo treatment while going about your daily routine. However, after treatment, we recommend that you refrain from wearing cosmetics or touching your face. This will help to lower the chances of an infection.

It’s best to avoid physical exertion and sports for 24 hours after the therapy and wait 48 hours before having any more cosmetic treatments. Sauna or steamy baths are also not recommended for the first few days. If you have any bruising or swelling, it’s better to keep out of the sun.

 

Profhilo Side Effects

There are minimal risks with any injectable treatment, including bruising and swelling, infection, allergic response, vascular compromise, and nerve injury, however, IBSA (the pharmacy that makes Profhilo) claims these are uncommon.

Profhilo Lumps

There is a risk of bumps/lumps at the entry points and bruising as well but the probability of this is very low, most people leave the surgery without the slightest sign of having just had a needle go into their face 10 times.

How Long Do Profhilo Lumps Last

These lumps normally disappear within 4-6 hours of treatment, although they can linger up to 24 hours.

Click here to read more about why you should go to a specialist for your Profhilo treatment.

 

Is Profhilo Permanent?

Profhilo is not a long-term solution because it was created to work in conjunction with your body’s natural activities. It’s made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a naturally occurring chemical that helps your skin retain moisture by stimulating collagen and elastin synthesis.

As a result, the injected Profhilo gradually degrades over time. The effects of your Profhilo treatment can continue up to six months, though this varies from person to person.

Why Hyaluronic Acid Is So Effective!

Profhilo
SKINCARE

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring glycosaminoglycan present in connective tissue throughout the body. Glycosaminoglycans are polysaccharides, which are lengthy unbranched carbohydrates or sugars.

It is the key component that provides your skin structure and gives it that plump, hydrated appearance. It plays an essential function in wound healing and declines with age, making us more prone to sagging and wrinkles.

Hyaluronic acid is the main ingredient in the Profhilo procedure, the first injectable hyaluronic acid-based skin treatment. It’s a skin-rejuvenation therapy that leaves you with a beautiful, glowing complexion. Continue reading to learn further about hyaluronic acid and why it’s much more than just a fad ingredient.

 

Hyaluronic Acid Injection

Hyaluronic acid injections are a type of temporary dermal filler. It is naturally present throughout the body, with the largest concentrations found in the joints, eyes, and skin. HA draws water into the skin, allowing it to become more hydrated.

The fat, muscles, bone, and skin in our faces begin to thin as we age; this loss of volume causes the face to appear sunken or sagging and fine lines, creases, folds, and thin lips. Injectable HA treats these and adds structure, framework, and volume to the face and lips. The effects of injectable hyaluronic acid are instantly noticeable.

It can also be used more like a high-performance injectable moisturiser than a filler. Profhilo (the treatment name for HA injections) is most typically used on the face and neck, where wrinkles and drooping skin are most visible. However, it can be utilised whenever tighter, younger-looking skin is needed.

 

What’s The Difference Between Dermal Fillers And Hyaluronic Acid Injections?

The treatment process and final results differentiate Hyaluronic Acid Injections from dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are injectable facial fillers that provide instant plumping. They are typically used on specific parts of the face, such as the lips, cheeks, and jaw, to contour and restore volume to sunken and depressed areas. They are also used to prevent the formation of wrinkles (such as those on the forehead) and as a jowl filler.

Hyaluronic Acid Injections, on the other hand, do not volumise when injected into the skin and instead function to revitalise and moisturise your complete appearance rather than changing specific areas.

Profhilo is popular because it gives a fresh, natural appearance while softening fine lines and wrinkles, unlike dermal fillers. So the advantage is that you don’t look to be ‘done.’ Click here to read all the areas that you can have profhilo.

 

How Often Can You Get Hyaluronic Acid Injections?

In general, you should plan on returning every 6 months. While some people prefer more regular treatments, not wanting to wait for their lines or wrinkles to reappear completely before seeking further treatment, others may be able to wait seven or even nine months between treatments.

 

How Does Hyaluronic Acid Work?

The skin advantages of hyaluronic acid are due to its molecular weight and concentration. The molecular weight of a HA molecule refers to its mass or how big it is. This is measured in unified atomic mass units, also known as daltons or kDa for short.

According to the most recent human studies, HA between 50 to 1,000 kDa is the most useful for skin, with around 130 kDa being the best. Anything higher won’t make a significant difference. Anything less than that may cause irritation.

When you look at the research, you’ll notice a pattern, they discovered that therapy with 130 kDa HA was the most effective after one month, increasing skin elasticity by 20%. After 60 days, both the 50 and 130 kDa groups showed a significant reduction in wrinkle depth and skin roughness.

There is always some risk to any cosmetic procedure; make sure you consult an experienced professional before going ahead with your treatment.

SKIN TREATMENTS

Profhilo®, the newest sought after treatment to take the aesthetics industry by storm, is receiving rave reviews from medical professionals and clients alike, and we’re not surprised why! Supplying the skin with a unique level of hydration, this treatment works to enhance the plumpness and firmness of your skin from within; evening out fine lines and wrinkles and other signs of ageing to allow your skin to achieve a new lease of life! Carry on reading to find out more about exactly how Profhilo® works, its key benefits and the results you can expect.

 

What exactly is Profhilo®?

Profhilo® is a revolutionary skin remodelling treatment that rejuvenates sagging, dull and ageing skin. From around the age of 25 we begin to produce less collagen and over the years our skin starts to show signs of ageing in the form of fine lines, hollowness, lack of volume etc. By injecting 100% Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in various points across the face, Profhilo® is able to vastly increase hydration and firmness within the skin, resulting in the visible improvement of fine lines and wrinkles as well as overall facial volume. Unlike dermal fillers, Profhilo® does not work to improve the appearance of one area in particular (e.g. cheeks, lips, jaw line), but provides overall facial rejuvenation to create an all-round healthy, glowing and more youthful appearance that will help you feel more you!

Click here to read more on the difference between Profhilo® and Dermal Fillers.

 

So how does Profhilo® work?

Profhilo® works by administering Hyaluronic Acid (HA) (a substance found naturally within our bodies) in a number of points just beneath the skin’s surface, to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen. Due to the unique levels of HA administered, it is able to restore lost volume, tighten and firm skin, and give an overall renewed look that cannot be achieved with less advanced treatments such as peels. As mentioned above, although Profhilo® uses the same substance as dermal fillers, due to its formulation and the way it is administered, it achieves results across the entire face rather than in one particular area, in order to achieve a more consistent look.

Book your free consultation now

 

The procedure of Profhilo® and side effects:

Profhilo® is injected into several points across the face to ensure the HA filler is evenly and accurately dispersed, and the process takes around 15 minutes in total. Much like other injectable treatments, there can be some discomfort experienced as the substance is injected. After the treatment, you may notice some mild swelling and bruising around the injection sites for the first 24 hours after treatment, however other than this we do not expect any adverse reactions to occur from Profhilo®.

Click here to read everything you need to know about Profhilo®.

 

How long does it last and what are the benefits?

You can start to see the results of Profhilo® at around 4 weeks after treatment and these can last up to 6 months, however this varies on an individual basis and can be longer or shorter than this. You will notice an overall more rejuvenated look across your face, with fine lines and wrinkles evened out so they are no longer as noticeable, and a much more plump complexion. For the very best results, we recommend a total of 3 treatments, every 4 weeks.

What is Profhilo®?

Profhilo® is one of the newest ground-breaking treatments in aesthetics and is a treatment that has been specially formulated to help deeply hydrate your skin, reduce signs of ageing whilst creating a naturally youthful glow.

Our Group Medical Director and aesthetics treatment expert, Dr Toni Phillips describes it as the “holy grail”. She adds: “In my 15 year career it’s one of the most exciting things I’ve ever seen because it really changes the skin, it’s scientifically proven, we have a high rate of client satisfaction, I love having the treatment, I love giving the treatment and I love the way clients react when they see the results.”

Where can Profhilo® be used?

Profhilo® is a revolutionary skin remodelling treatment made from Hyaluronic Acid that rejuvenates sagging, dull and ageing skin. Unlike dermal fillers that are used to give definition to places like your lips, cheeks or jawline, Profhilo® provides an overall facial rejuvenation working to plump the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Click here to read more on the difference between the two treatments.

Profhilo® is most commonly used in the face as you can see below:

But did you know that Profhilo® is also an effective treatment for areas other than your face? As Profhilo® hydrates skin, creating firmness and reducing fine lines, it can be used to reduce signs of ageing such as sagging and crepe-like skin on your neck, décolleté, arms, knees and hands.

See the difference it made to a client’s arms here:

Profhilo before and after

 

Is Profhilo® permanent?

Profhilo® is not a permanent solution as it has been designed to work with your body’s natural processes. It is formulated from Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a substance that already exists in your body to maintain moisture in your skin by encouraging the production of collagen and elastin. As such, the injected Profhilo® slowly breaks down over time. You can expect the results of your Profhilo® treatment to last for up to six months, but this differs from person to person. Dr Toni recommends having regular treatments per year to keep the collagen levels high and your skin looking fantastic.

“Profhilo® only stays in the skin for about 45/60 days and then it clears out of the body. In the meantime it has activated the stem cells which are now producing all of this new collagen and your skin just changes. What clients see initially when they have Profhilo is a glow due to the Hyaluronic Acid, that’s why we recommend having it on a regular basis because the high levels of Hyaluronic Acid keep the skin glowing. If some clients choose to only have it a few times a year, due to budget or availability, they’ll still get that biological stimulation from the new collagen but because the Hyaluronic Acid is gone they won’t get that glow benefit.”

SKIN TREATMENT

Profhilo® has taken the beauty world by storm. This wonder treatment plumps and rejuvenates tired, dull and ageing skin giving you a luminous glow and completely natural looking results. Profhilo® (the first of its kind) is essentially a hyaluronic acid (HA) moisturiser, which when injected has the benefit of working from within giving you long lasting results and younger looking skin. This is the ideal treatment for those over the age of 30, as this is when we start to lose a significant amount of collagen, elastin and HA.

“One of the gold standout treatments for me is Profhilo, it’s the holy grail! In my 15 year career it’s one of the most exciting things I’ve ever seen because it really changes the skin, it’s scientifically proven, we have a high rate of client satisfaction, I love having the treatment, I love giving the treatment and I love the way clients react when they see the results.” Dr Toni Philips, Group Medical Director at DestinationSkin

 

‘The holy grail of skincare’

Loved by beauty bloggers and journalists, Profhilo® was dubbed the ‘holy grail of skincare’ by Imogen Edwards-Jones of getthegloss.com. “It’s better than looking well rested. The result is a dewy, healthy, slightly plumper looking glow that takes a good five years off your face”. Amber Graafland, from the Daily Mirror is also a fan. “It’s the ultimate skin pick-me-up and perfect for anyone looking for skin that looks dewy, plumper and generally younger. Martine McCutcheon is fan and it’s the treatment beauty industry insiders can’t stop talking about”. So how does it actually work? And what ingredients can really make you look five years younger? Read on to find out the anti-ageing secret behind Profhilo®.

 

So, how does Profhilo® work?

Unlike other injectable treatments, Profhilo® is a moisturiser. It contains 100% synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA) and the ingredients can work from deep within the skin to rehydrate and plump. This is what makes it far more effective than any topical moisturiser that contains HA. With one of the highest concentrations of HA currently available, it not only boosts and hydrates, but can dramatically reduce fine lines and remodel sagging and ageing skin. It’s relatively painless and the treatment involves two sessions a month apart. Read more here about the treatment.

 

What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the body that is responsible for maintaining moisture within our skin and many skincare products contain this active ingredient. Profhilo® has been specially formulated to contain a unique level of synthetic HA which helps to encourage the production of collagen and elastin in the skin and when injected, it stimulates the skin’s natural synthesis of collagen.

 

How long does Profhilo® last?

Profhilo® lasts in the skin for around 28 days. During this time the stimulation of four different types of collagen and elastin takes place by slowly releasing hyaluronic acid. Within the first few weeks you will see intense hydration, glowing skin and fine lines can disappear! You skin will feel smoother and tighter.

 

What areas can be treated?

Profhilo® is most commonly used for facial areas including the top of the cheeks, nasolabial fold laughter lines, mouth and chin but can also effectively be used for rejuvenating the neck, décolletage, arms, knees and hands.

 

How is Profhilo® different to dermal filler?

If you are looking to add volume to specific areas, dermal filler would be the right treatment for you. Profhilo® is not a volumising treatment like dermal filler and isn’t used to enhanced specific areas of the face (e.g. lips and chin). The HA injected is dispersed evenly throughout the face giving you an all-round plumped, firmer appearance.

Profhilo® can be combined with this treatment to achieve maximum results. Talk to your practitioner in your free consultation about the best course of treatment for you.
