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.
