Profhilo is an exclusive skin remodeling treatment containing one of the highest concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid, especially formulated for individuals with skin that is lacking volume and elasticity.
By stimulating the production of collagen and elastin through the slow release of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Profhilo significantly improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and helps to increase hydration and firmness across the face.
Profhilo is revolutionary as it is not a filler and so does not plump the face or change the facial appearance. It is especially effective as an anti-ageing treatment for producing brighter and tighter skin, reducing fine lines and can reduce lax skin in the:

What does the treatment involve?
CONSULTATION: At the start of any Profhilo treatment a thorough consultation will take place, where our specialized dermatologist who will examine your face and discuss with you your specific skin needs and concerns.
PROCESS: During the treatment the specialized dermatologist will inject the product using very fine needles in five specific points on the face . The product immediately starts spreading due to the high concentration of hyaluronic acid and its cohesive nature. It flows and distributes itself evenly, rather than remaining where it is placed, naturally and without resistance integrating within your skin’s existing tissue. Once it disperses, it hydrates the tissue all around it, giving the skin the nutrients to restore it’s youthful plumpness. The skin becomes radiant and healthy looking and fine lines fade away.
TIME: The procedure takes about 30-40 minutes.
FINISHING: After the procedure you might notice redness and for the first few hours after the treatment, this is normal.
NUMBER OF TREATMENTS NEEDED: For most patients, we recommend an initial course of two treatment sessions, with an interval of one month between sessions.
We may then recommend top-up and maintenance sessions, depending on your body’s response to the initial treatment.
