Profhilo at it's best
Using Advanced Hyaluronic Acid technology in a simple treatment but giving impressive results. Our bodies contain Hyaluronic Acid naturally, we find it in our joints for flexibility and strength and in our skin for elasticity, moisture, and firmness. But as we age, we start to lose the natural production.
With Profhilo treatments, we can very simply, inject it back into the skin to restore or maintain that moisture, elasticity and firmness. Profhilo will improve skin quality in all ages and skin types. Profhilo treatments can be a good introduction to advanced skin treatments, for those not quite ready for the more traditional dermal filler, but we feel they are starting to show the first signs of ageing.
Profhilo will also enhance the results of any other anti-aging treatment, such as anti-wrinkle injections or dermal fillers, or any other skin treatment. It can be used on the face, the neck, the backs of the hands, and the decolletage area, to add moisture and plumpness, to restore a more youthful look to these areas.
The treatment involves a small number of superficial injections of high strength Hyaluronic Acid, within 48 hours of the treatment the profhilo starts to diffuse into the skin, stimulating 4 different types of collagen, resulting in a tighter firmer and more hydrated skin. You can return to normal activities immediately.
The treatment procedure involves an initial 2 treatments, one month apart. (Occasionally 3 will be recommended depending on skin condition) And then to maintain the results it is recommended that one repeat treatment is carried out every 4-6 months. The results get better with each treatment.

After initial course and with maintenance
Ready to get started
What happens during the treatment?Once the appropriate product has been decided on, photos will be taken both before and after the treatment. The hands will be cleaned and a topical anaesthetic cream will be applied. The treatment area will be marked out with a sterile white marker. Injections will be carried out using either a needle or a cannula.
How long does the treatment take?You will be in the clinic for 30 – 45 minutes, depending on the treatment being done.
Does it hurt?The sensations can be described as “pinchy” but most people find this quite tolerable
How long will the effects last?Depending on the treatment chosen for the hands, the effects will last up to 9 months. It is recommended that you also use hand cream and SPF daily to prolong the effects.
Do I need repeated treatments?As with most aesthetic treatments maintenance is required. But with good homecare as well as the clinic treatments the effects can last so that treatment may only need to be done once a year. Twice if the treatment is profhilo.
What will I look like immediately after treatment?Immediately after treatment there will be some raised bumps, this will disappear over the next few hours. It is possible to get some bruising.
Do I need to do anything special before or after the treatment?Before treatment it is recommended to limit alcohol for 24 hors and limit the use of anti-inflammatory painkillers, both of these can increase the risk of bruising. Some supplements such as vitamin e and fish oils can also have this effect, so stopping these a few days before treatment can also be useful. Do not stop any prescribed prescription medication without discussing this first. After treatment, keep the hands clean and avoid the use of hand creams for 4 hours.
