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.

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.

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.
