Profhilo is the only injectable skin treatment available, specifically designed to reverse this breakdown by stimulating collagen and elastin, to help slow down the process of ageing.
As we age, the collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid in our skin starts to break down, which in turn means that our skin starts to sag and lose laxity.
Unlike conventional hyaluronic acid, Profhilo treatment does not volumise. Its higher concentration of HA acts to improve the skin tissue quality by boosting and hydrating the skin as well as lifting and tightening the sagging tissue.
Due to its innovative formula, Profhilo skin booster is being heralded as a ‘cure for wrinkles’, as it helps boost the body’s own natural collagen and elastin production.
To find out more about this amazing collagen booster treatment and to book a consultation, please don’t hesitate to contact our clinics in London, conveniently located near Harley Street and in Stoke Poges, Buckinghamshire.

Profhilo is a collagen boosting injectable treatment that tightens, moisturises and strengthens the skin when it is injected across strategic points. Once the high strength hyaluronic acid has been injected into the skin, it will gradually disperse and migrate from the injection site, providing structural support and hydration across a wider area. Once settled, the advanced formulation kickstarts a skin remodelling process by rebooting the body’s ability to generate elastin and collagen proteins. The treatment is divided into 2 injectable treatment sessions that enhance the area being treated. Following these treatment sessions, patients will notice a visible improvement in skin texture and tightness around 1 month after the final session, as collagen and elastin stores are revitalised.
Profhilo is not a filler. In fact, Profhilo cannot target specific areas to add volume like Dermal Filler can. It also can’t eliminate deep wrinkles. Profhilo is a gentle, regenerative collagen booster treatment that acts as hydrator creating amazing anti-ageing effects for the skin.
Profhilo is ideal for hydrating, smoothing and strengthening skin across a wide range of areas like the face, neck, arms, knees, hands and décolletage. Its skin tightening properties redefine loose and sagging skin while smoothing out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles thanks to its deeply hydrating and nourishing formulation. Profhilo’s ultra-pure hyaluronic acid structure helps attract and maintain water levels in the deepest layers of the skin, while renewing fresh collagen and elastin stores. The result is a dramatic improvement in the skin’s texture, firmness and radiance in addition to a noticeable reduction in wrinkles.
After your Profhilo injection treatment please follow the below Profhilo aftercare tips to avoid infection and also to get the best possible results:
Whilst you may notice an instant improvement in the texture and tightness of your skin following your Profhilo treatment, the best results are visible in about 4 weeks after you had your procedure done. To maintain the effect, most patients require maintenance treatments twice a year.
Initially, Profhilo is swiftly absorbed deep within the skin, after which is works around the clock to regenerate your skin quality from the inside out.
Around one-week post-treatment, you’ll begin to experience improved skin hydration. Your skin will feel notably more supple and smoother. By the fourth week you can look forward to the bio-remodelling and anti-aging benefits will become evident with lifted cheeks, reduced fine lines and firmer and radiant skin.
Profhilo’s longevity typically spans approximately six months, though this can differ from person to person. Each treatment plan is tailored to the individual patient’s specific concerns. The standard approach entails a minimum of two treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, followed by maintenance sessions every 6-12 months as needed.
Some individuals may observe a decline in skin radiance around the six-month mark, while others appreciate the treatment so much that they choose to return sooner than six months, which is perfectly acceptable.
The treatment is divided into two to three treatment sessions, 4-6 weeks apart with maintenance treatments as required, but approximately twice a year.
The product distributes itself evenly under the skin. Due to the high concentration of hyaluronic acid, only a few strategic injection points are needed on each side of the face, making the treatment more comfortable for patients, whilst maximizing the uplifting effect.
No. You may experience some slight swelling or bruising at the site of the injections but these should be minor and can be easily covered with mineral make-up.
Profhilo is a safe and effective treatment when administered by our qualified practitioners. However, potential issues that can occur with Profhilo can be:
You may notice “Profhilo lumps” near the injection sites, resembling small insect bites. These are a typical occurrence following Profhilo injectable treatment and typically resolve within 24 hours. Occasionally, a single lump may take a bit longer to dissipate, but this is still considered normal.
With Profhilo, you can see from many treatment videos that you can initially get temporary raised bumps at the injection site. These are usually gone within 1 – 3 days. In the rare case that your Profhilo lumps don’t appear to be going away post the above guideline of 1-3 days, you can always contact the clinic and our practitioners will happily assess your results and assist you, so you are not inconvenienced.
Profhilo has little to no side effects. Common Profhilo side effects may include light swelling of the skin, redness or bruising, and soreness. These post-treatment effects will usually subside in 48 hours . However, if you are experiencing any of these side effects after ten days since you had your procedure, please contact your Profhilo practitioner for further aftercare advice.
