Is it painful? We apply a topical anesthetic cream prior to injecting to enhance comfort levels more so. When the numbing cream wears off after the procedure, patients may experience some mild discomfort – cold compress can help to alleviate this.
- Avoid the use of supplements that may thin the blood, including aspirin.
- Prescription medications must be cleared by your GP before ceasing.
- Avoid alcohol 24 hours prior to procedure.
What happens dring treatment? Before we begin injecting, a topical anaesthetic cream will be applied to the area for couple of minutes, as this improve comfort levels. Once the area is numb, we disinfect the skin. Throughout the procedure, you may experience some stinging sensations and tenderness – this is very normal and will subside.

Profhilo is a completely new product that uses patented technologies engineered for ‘skin remodelling’. It is made from hyaluronic acid (HA) like many Dermal Fillers, however, rather than filling lines, it is designed to promote collagen and elastin growth to reduce skin laxity.
Thanks to the unique characteristics of Profhilo, improving skin laxity is easily obtained in only 2 sessions, with a 1 month interval and only 5 injection points on each side of the face. Profhilo is suitable for practically anyone, men and women, from 30 years old and with no upper age limit.
With one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market (64mg/2ml), it is not only boosting and hydrating the skin, but also remodels the ageing & sagging tissue. As a stabilised product, Profhilo lasts in the skin around 28 days. During this time, the stimulation of 4 different types of collagen and elastin takes place by slow release of HA.
The stimulation results in significant tissue improvement. Therefore, we cannot say that Profhilo is a skin booster, as it also has a significant tightening/lifting effect on the tissue.
Profhilo is licensed as a Medical device and has a European CE Mark. The treatment is temporary, as the HA is completely broken down within the skin leaving no trace.
2 treatments every 4 weeks. No further treatments required for 12 to 16 months, dependant on lifestyle.
