The Profhilo Technique - Everything You Need To Know

As UK legislation for aesthetic injectable treatments is stricter, Profhilo has a pathway to enter as an injectable alternative. Profhilo is a super moisturiser, not a filler or Botox, that provides a vital glow, deep hydration, and an exceptional glow.

What is Profhilo?

Profhilo is one of the first injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) moisturising treatments that can directly treat skin laxity while remodelling and renewing skin tissue to be firm again. It helps restore skin firmness, tone, and elasticity at multiple levels that skincare products can’t achieve.

How Does Profhilo Compare To Other Injectables?

The main difference between Filer, Botox injections, and Profhilo is that Profhilo is an addition suitable for less mature skin without any other cosmetic injectables, whereas Botox and fillers are skin replacements. Profhilo is a gentle, regenerative treatment that gives natural-looking results.

How Does Profhilo Work?

Profhilo works by being precisely injected into the treatment area to tighten, moisturise, and strengthen the skin. The high-strength hyaluronic acid is injected across strategic points where it will gradually disperse. Once it has settled, the skin-remodelling process begins. The advanced formulation stimulates the body’s elastin and collagen proteins. This stimulation will result in significant tissue improvement through the skin tightening and lifting effect.

Benefits of Profhilo

Profhilo is an advanced treatment in the anti-ageing industry. It has many benefits, including improving skin hydration and moisture levels and stimulating four types of collagen and elastin. Moreover, it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, restores skin dewiness, and lifts loose, sagging skin. At the deeper levels, it creates structure and support alongside hydration, which gives the skin its bounce and plumpness. We see improved texture, tone, and a healthier complexion on the surface.

What Are The 5 Injection Points For Profhilo?

The five injection points on each side of the face for Profhilo using the BAP technique are the upper cheek, nasal base, lower cheek, jawline, and chin.

Does Profhilo Look Natural?

Profhilo does not affect the shape or volume of the face and profoundly hydrates and remodels the skin to look smoother and tighter, creating very natural-looking results

How Many Treatments Will I Need With Profhilo?

Profhilo treatments depend on the patient’s age level. For maintenance, these treatments are divided into 2-3 sessions that are 4-6 weeks apart. For the best result, they are done twice a year.

How Quickly Will You See Results From Profhilo?

You will see a slight improvement in the texture of your skin within a month after the prophylaxis treatment. Maintenance treatments must be required twice a year.

How Painful is Profhilo?

At the starting stage of the injection, the patient may suffer from a brief sting. This is because the needle itself is tiny, but it’s the actual product that stings as it is injected.

What Is The Profhilo Downtime?

The downtime may depend on the patient’s skin. Some patients notice their skin becoming duller towards the six-month point, and others love the treatment so much that they come in sooner than six months, which is also acceptable.

Who Should And Shouldn't Use Profhilo?

Profhilo is not suitable for pregnant and breastfeeding women, as well as people under 25 who have young and plump skin. It is for those patients who have more maturely damaged skin.

Does Profhilo Work On All Skin Tones And Skin Types?

Profhilo treatment suits all genders, skin tones, and skin types.

What Can't Profhilo Do?

Profhilo can’t add volume to your skin or deeper lines like fillers.

Can Profhilo Go Wrong?

The risk of going wrong for Profhilo treatment is comparably low if done by an expert. Profhilo is very soft, and natural results are practically guaranteed.

Is Botox Better Than Profhilo?

Both treatments have different functionalities for the skin. Profhilo is used for skin transformation, boosting collagen production and hydrating the skin, whereas Botox smooths fine lines and wrinkles.
