Profhilo is the first stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) based injectable substance which helps to treat skin laxity. It offers one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market. Hyaluronic acid is responsible for hydrated and youthful skin and is drastically depleted from the skin over time.

The HA in Profhilo will boost and hydrate the skin as well as remodel the ageing and sagging tissue which occurs during the natural ageing process. Profhilo is not a dermal filler or bio-revitaliser, it is a bio-remodelling product, which is a new category in injectable moisturiser.

Profhilo forms 2 types of HA – HA and LHA. This combination of powerful HA components produces a longer-lasting product as well as intensive skin laxity remodelling.


Benefits of Profhilo

Profhilo works by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, two key proteins that contribute to the firmness and elasticity of the skin. Profhilo is an excellent choice for people who want to address fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging without the risk of side effects or downtime. This treatment is safe, effective, and suitable for all skin types, making it a versatile option for anyone looking to improve their skin's texture and tone.

Frequently Asked Questions

Profhilo works in a course of 2 or 3 treatments, 4 weeks apart. On the face, only 5 injection points are necessary on each side of the face to give maximum results. Profhilo acts as a hydrator rather than a filler. It is injected just under the surface of the skin, where it disperses quickly and reacts with your own tissues to instantly boost hydration.

Over the following 4 weeks, phase 2 will boost collagen and elastin production within the dermis. This helps to give the skin a youthful, plump, smooth, and firm appearance. Profhilo can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with other dermal fillers, laser treatments or Botox as part of a holistic approach to skin remodelling and revitalisation.

We use Profhilo to create an airbrushed skin effect on patients of all ages. It is especially popular with patients over the age of 30. If you are not happy with your skin laxity, have a thin skin as well as other visible signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles, you could be suitable for Profhilo.

However, before any treatment here at The Medic Clinic, a no obligation consultation will be needed to check your medical history, examine your individual concerns, and discuss potential results. Profhilo can be used on the face, neck, decolletage or hands to achieve tighter, firmer, more hydrated skin.


As Profhilo is injected just under the skin using very fine needles in pre-determined points, it is relatively painless; you may feel a short sting or scratch, but this is short-lived.

Patients can opt for topical numbing cream before a Profhilo treatment, but it is usually not needed. The procedure is very quick, taking only about 10 minutes.

There is no downtime with Profhilo. However, it’s advisable to avoid alcohol, aspirin, or anti-inflammatory medication in the 24 hours prior to the treatment. Vitamin C and Vitamin E can also increase the likelihood of bruising, but it is fine to use 48 hours after.

Immediately afterwards, it’s important to avoid wearing make-up and strenuous exercise such as going to the gym, swimming or extreme sports and hot steam rooms and saunas for at least 24 hours.

You will need to avoid excessive sunlight for 48 hours after Profhilo and wear a high SPF sunscreen.

It’s important to know that if you expose your skin to the sun, this will only have a detrimental effect on your skin quality and hydration. Investing in good habits such as wearing SPF and a wide-brimmed hat when going into extreme sunlight, as well as having regular treatments such as Profhilo will help your skin hugely, in the long-run.

There are no long-term side-effects with Profhilo as it is metabolised by the body completely. The risk of any allergic reaction is substantially reduced due to the lack of any synthetic chemicals.

Some people can experience some redness, slight bruising, tenderness, and possible itching at the injection sites, but these will subside in a few hours to a day and is totally natural.

Results from Profhilo can last anything from 6 to 12 months, depending on your individual reaction and metabolism of the product. The Medic Clinic Dr advises patients to return for a single maintenance treatment, every 4-6 months. This keeps the skin in exceptional condition.
