Profhilo Essex


Profhilo® represents the latest innovation in injectable rejuvenation therapies. This anti-aging hydration procedure harnesses the power of a high concentration of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally-occurring substance known for its ability to enhance skin tone, texture, and elasticity.



Profhilo is a skin bioremodeller consisting of high concentration hyaluronic acid. It works by stimulating skin collagen and elastin production as well as promoting increased skin hydration.

Profhilo is administered in small amounts by intradermal injection using very fine needles and aims to boost, tighten, hydrate and lift your skin. Profhilo is used to treat tired, aged, lax and dehydrated skin as well as for fine lines and wrinkles. Profhilo is commonly used for skin rejuvenation on the face but can also be used on the neck and hands.

Profhilo is not the treatment of choice for deep lines and scars or to add volume, it is not a dermal filler and will not produce the same results as these. You will be offered a topical anaesthetic cream before injection of Profhilo to help reduce discomfort during the procedure. 

What sets it apart from traditional dermal fillers is its distinct approach; rather than augmenting skin volume or impeding facial muscle movement, Profhilo® focuses on rejuvenating and hydrating the skin without these typical effects.

It is likely that you will need to go through two treatments, one month apart.
Each treatment should last 30 minutes.

Allow yourself 24 hours after the treatment for any side-effects to subside.

Profhilo results last for about 6 to 12 months, much like dermal fillers do.

The injections will be delivered into either side of your face and 10 more will be made into your neck, but these shouldn’t hurt.
An anaesthetic-numbing cream can be applied beforehand for extra comfort during the procedure.

Profhilo treatment is considered to be low-risk.
Common side effects include swelling, redness and bruising at the injection sites; more serious risks are rare.

When you meet with us in person, we will give you advice on what to do and not do after the procedure.
We will also provide tips for caring for your skin until any mild side effects fade away.



Profhilo will improve the hydration, tone and texture of your skin’s cheeks, giving it a plumper, firmer look. It is especially great for aging skin that has become less elastic due to lower collagen production. It will give you a natural-looking refreshed appearance!


As we get older, our necks often give away how old we really are. Profhilo tightens up any skin laxity and sagging in the neck lifting it at the same time and is also effective on loose or hanging décolleté skin.


One of the parts of your body that may give away how old you are is your hands and knees. Profhilo can help address concerns such as these, making those areas look more youthful.

Profhilo FAQs

What is Profhilo?

Profhilo is distinct from traditional fillers, as it operates as a highly efficient remodelling injectable that triggers natural collagen production.

This innovative treatment combines high and low molecular weight non-animal hyaluronic acid, which are thermally stabilised and fused to form a patented hybrid complex. This complex transforms into a gel upon application, seamlessly spreading and integrating into the skin.

Could I Benefit from Profhilo?

Profhilo is generally suitable for individuals in both the early and advanced stages of skin ageing. However, we require you to attend a no-obligation consultation. This allows us to evaluate your specific skin concerns and review your medical history. After ensuring that Profhilo is a safe and suitable option for you, we will schedule your treatment at the clinic.

What Areas Can be Treated?

Profhilo is a versatile treatment employed to address skin laxity and enhance skin quality. It can effectively target these concerns in various areas, including:

  • The face
  • Neck
  • Décolletage
  • Hands
  • Inner arms

Patients typically notice an overall enhancement in skin hydration, luminosity, smoothness, and firmness following treatment.

How many treatments will be given?

The Profhilo treatment involves a specific injection pattern based on the targeted area. Typically, you will undergo two sessions, spaced four weeks apart. The first session serves to stimulate the desired effects, while the second session acts as a “boost” to ensure longevity. In certain cases, and depending on your initial skin quality, a third treatment may be recommended, usually scheduled eight weeks after your second session.

The duration of results can vary from person to person, but most individuals start noticing improvements over a period of 4 to 6 weeks, and these effects are expected to last for approximately 6 months. If you choose not to pursue further treatments to maintain the results, your skin will gradually return to its pre-treatment condition over time.

Are there any special steps for aftercare?

  • Immediately after Profhilo injections the treatment area may be red, tender or swollen. The redness and tenderness should improve after 48 hours. Swelling is often worse on days 2-3 after injection, improved by day 5 and resolved by 2 weeks.
  • For significant swelling contact your practitioner for advice. Swelling may be reduced by regular cold compress, anti-inflammatory medicines such as Ibuprofen (after 24 hours, if safe for you to take), antihistamines and sleeping with your head propped up on 3 pillows to help drainage of fluid overnight.
  • Bruising may occur following treatment, bruising will resolve naturally but may take up to 2 weeks to settle.
  • Regular application of Arnica cream may be helpful for bruising.
  • Tenderness is normal when the injected area is touched afterwards but active pain at rest is not normal. If you experience pain, you must contact your practitioner as soon as possible.
  • Avoid any makeup for 24 hours after treatment as this will reduce the risk of infection.
  • Drink plenty of water after treatment to keep well hydrated.
  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine for 24 hours after treatment.
  • Avoid medications such as aspirin or Ibuprofen for 24 hours as they are blood thinning agents and may worsen bruising (if these medications have been advised by your GP you must check with your GP before stopping them)
  • Avoid supplements such as multivitamins, fish oils, glucosamine and Vitamin B or Vitamin E, which are blood thinning agents and may exacerbate bruising for 24 hours (if these supplements have been advised by your GP please check with your GP before stopping them)
  • Avoid any excess sun exposure, extremes of hot/cold, saunas, swimming or strenuous exercise until the redness and swelling has settled.
  • A rare complication of Profhilo is vascular occlusion in which a blood vessel is accidentally blocked with filler. Signs and symptoms include throbbing and aching pain which can be severe, paleness, a cold feeling to the tissue and purple streaky mottling tissue changes. If you notice any of these symptoms you must contact your practitioner as soon as possible, they will guide you through how to perform a capillary refill test and then assess you fully and advise further action if required.
