What Makes Profhilo Different?
Profhilo® is a unique skin remodelling treatment that works by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin in the skin through the slow release of Hyaluronic Acid (HA).
Unlike other anti-ageing injectables that use fillers to add volume and stretch out the skin, Profhilo uses Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body to hydrate, firm and actually rebuild new, younger-looking skin cells.
This works on reversing the signs of ageing at a cellular level, stimulating new collagen and elastin cells, significantly improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and giving you firmer, more youthful skin on your face.
With dermal fillers, the results tend to be very localised because the cross linked gel only stays in the area in which it has been injected. However, non-cross linked Hyaluronic Acid like Profhilo is different. Once injected it disperses evenly throughout the skin, so the effects are visible throughout your whole face, giving a much more even anti-ageing result.
What Problems Can Profhilo Help With?
Profhilo is an excellent anti-ageing treatment, clinically proven to help with a wide range of ageing symptoms. It acts as a hydrator rather than a traditional dermal filler, and is therefore fantastic for those with tired, dull and ageing skin, as it provides overall more plump and luminous skin.
Examples of some of the signs of ageing that Profhilo can be used for include:
Wrinkles such as crows feet, smoker’s lines and smile lines.
Saggy, loose skin on your face.
Dull, dehydrated looking skin.
Sunken skin that needs more volume
How Profhilo Works:
As you age your body starts to produce less collagen and elastin – the cells that give your skin its structure and firmness. When these cells start to reduce, your skin can no longer hold its appearance and the first signs of ageing, such as fine lines and wrinkles, start to appear.
Profhilo works right at the root cause of the problem – stimulating collagen and elastin production and increasing the elasticity of your skin.
The Profhilo is injected just below the skin’s surface in only 2 sessions over a period of 4 weeks. It disperses quickly to boost and instantly hydrate your skin, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles and resulting in improved skin texture.
Profhilo is the first BDDE-free stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) based product for treating skin laxity. With one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market (64mg / 2ml) it is not only amazing at boosting and hydrating the skin but it is also one of the most effective products out there for remodelling the ageing and sagging tissue.
Profhilo has been voted the best treatment of 2019 by The Times, and is incredibly safe, due to the formulation of hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally, and the levels of HA in the body are balanced by an enzyme known as hyaluronidase, which breaks down the hyaluronic acid molecules.
This is also the substance that breaks down Profhilo fillers over time, making it the least disruptive form of filler as the body is already equipped to work with the main ingredients.
HA is also the substance we use in our dermal fillers, as they are biodegradable, malleable and the safest form of dermal filler on the market.
The Profhilo Treatment Journey
The first step in your Profhilo anti-ageing journey is to book a consultation with Lindsey, our Aesthetic Practitioner who carries out all of our Profhilo treatments.
Lindsey will talk to you about what it is you want to achieve from your treatment, as well as making sure you’re a suitable candidate for a Profhilo enhancement treatment. She will talk you through the process and collaborate with you to find a treatment plan that works for you.
Above all, we want you to feel comfortable and safe during your treatment here at Ny Beauti Aesthetics, and to ensure that you’re happy with Lindsey as your aesthetic practitioner.
-Before Your Profhilo Treatment:
If you’re happy with your treatment plan then your Profhilo appointment can be booked in.
Before your treatment, you should avoid blood thinners like aspirin and other anti-inflammatories like Ibuprofen or Aleve, fish oil, multivitamins or vitamin E for at least a day beforehand, as they can increase the appearance of bruising after the treatment.
-During Your Profhilo Treatment:
During your treatment, Lindsey can apply a numbing cream to make sure the procedure is comfortable for you. She will mark the areas to be treated and then inject the Profhilo filler using a tiny needle. This can cause some mild discomfort, but most people find it easily tolerable, especially when numbing cream is used.
The entire treatment process usually takes under 30 minutes and has no required recovery time, so you can get back to your day straight after treatment.
-After Your Profhilo Treatment:
After treatment, you may experience mild swelling or bruising, although this usually goes down within a few days, leaving you with a plump, youthful appearance.
You should try and avoid touching the area & or taking part in any intense exercise for 24 hours after treatment to make sure you don’t disturb or displace the Profhilo filler.
The amount of time the filler takes to break down varies from person to person depending on the volume, type and location of filler injected, as well as the natural levels of hyaluronidase in the body. Generally, Profhilo fillers will last for around six months, though optimum results can vary from around three to eighteen months.
-Is Profhilo a Dermal Filler?
*Profhilo is not a typical dermal filler. It is very different from all other injectable substances as it has been engineered specifically for “skin bio remodelling”. Composed of a high-grade Hyaluronic Acid produced by bio-fermentation, it can effectively enable the production of both your natural collagen and elastin, causing your skin to renew successfully from within.
Due to its high purity and the absence of additives, Profhilo offers reduced side effects and a safer alternative to traditional fillers.
-Is Profhilo Safe?
*Profhilo was first launched in early 2015 in Italy and it has been used worldwide ever since. There have been over 150,000 patients treated so far with no adverse reactions reported.
From a safety perspective, Profhilo® is highly biocompatible because it is made from ultrapure, natural Hyaluronic Acid and is stabilised without the addition of chemical cross-linking agents. This reduces the risk of adverse reactions. The product has also won numerous awards around the world, including:
Aesthetics Award for Product Innovation of the Year.

-How Many Treatments Will I Need?
*It is recommended to have at least two sessions (one month apart) to achieve optimum results. However, if the skin problems are severe, a third session may be advised. To maintain the results we recommend a top-up treatment session around every 6 months. Your practitioner will provide you with a full treatment plan and advice during your initial consultation.
-How Quickly Will I Notice Results From My Profhilo Treatment?
*You might notice some results immediately following the treatment, but the real magic happens in the weeks to follow, as your skin rebuilds the new collagen and elastin.
Results are typically seen after just two treatment sessions, with a one-month interval between them.
-How Long Do The Profhilo Results Last?
*The results from Profhilo treatments will usually last for up to six months but may vary from individual to individual. For most people, maintenance sessions tend to be required every 6-12 months depending on the level of correction required, your age and lifestyle.
-Are There Any Side Effects?
*Hyaluronic Acid is very well tolerated by the skin as the body also produces HA naturally. The only reported side effects are light bruising and mild swelling at the injection sites, and these generally disappear in a short period of time. This happens because Profhilo is injected with a fine needle, rather than any effect from the Profhilo treatment itself.
-Will I Need To Rest After Treatments?
*We recommend not to exercise on the day of treatment as this can disrupt the placement of the hyaluronic acid and reduce how effective the treatment will be.
When injected using the five-point technique on each side of the face, you may notice some redness and irritation around the injection site. However, this resolves very quickly and will disappear completely by the next day.
You should avoid having further aesthetic or cosmetic procedures for 2 days. It is not recommended to go to a sauna or have a steamy bath for the first few days either. It’s best to stay out of the sun if any bruising or prolonged swelling occurs.
Apart from that, you can get back to your day straight away with no downtime!
-Will People Be Able To Tell I’ve Had “Work Done” Or Look “Over Done”?
*The subtle and gradual results usually mean that people won’t be able to tell you’ve had a treatment, but this depends on the skin condition being treated and the desired outcome.
Profhilo can significantly improve skin laxity by increasing the tissue density of the skin, and some patients have seen a lifted appearance, which can be noticeable but not “fake-looking”.
Most patients say they were complimented on how fresh they looked, but rarely asked what work they have had done.
