As technology within the aesthetic industry continues to evolve, Profhilo has gained repute in recent years as the lastest antiaging injectable for various reasons. Commonly mistaken for fillers due to the use of hyaluronic acid, Profhilo doesn’t increase volume in the face and helps to boost collagen production for a more youthful appearance.

So what is Profhilo?

Profhilo is made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in our bodies and could hold many times its own weight in water which makes it such an excellent hydration magnet. When Profhilo is injected into the skin, it acts as an internal moisturizer, resulting in softer, smoother and firmer skin that could last for 6 months to a year.

How is Profhilo different from fillers?

Profhilo is not a filler even though it is also made from hyaluronic acid. Fillers come in different thickness and consistencies to be used on different parts of the face to offer different results.  Profhilo on the other hand is more fluid and works by spreading under the skin so that is covers the whole face, hence only 5 points of injection is required on each side of the face.

The texture and the way Profhilo works mean that volume is not added to your face, rather your skin will hydrated and strengthened from within.

What can I expect after a Profhilo treatment?

Immediately after the treatment, you may notice some raised bumps where the injection points were but this will go away after a few hours.

To appreciate the full results from Profhilo, be prepared to wait approximately 8 weeks after your first treatment. Your skin will feel more hydrated and you will notice firmer skin as the injections stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. As a bonus side effect, skin looks healthier and will be more radiant than before!
