Frequently Asked Questions

What is Profhilo®

Until recently even with the use of Botox® and dermal fillers we were unable to treat the appearance of skin becoming less tight – basically the loss of collagen and elastin fibres which happens with age. With Profhilo® we can now counteract this.

Profhilo contains 2 types of hyaluronic acid (also found in dermal fillers). Type 1 stimulates your own cells to make more of your own hyaluronic acid. This nourishes and hydrates the skin cells from within. Type 2 counteracts skin laxity whilst remodeling the face and tightening the skin.

What areas are treated?

There are 10 injection sites – 5 on each side of the face. You will not see immediate results as Profhilo® does not work in the same way as dermal fillers. After the injections, Profhilo® will gently spread out under the skin and start working. Treatment involves 2 visits, 1 month apart.

Is the procedure painful?

There are slightly more injections than you would have for other treatments, but the injections are not painful and have been well tolerated by our clients.

How long will the effects last?
Results will last between 9 and 12 months.
Are there any side-effects?

As with any injections on your face there is a small risk of bruising. You may feel small lumps under your skin, where the Profhilo® has been injected, but these will go down within a few days.
