What is Profhilo?

When injected into skin, Profhilo stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity and improve and restore firmness of the skin. It has one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid available on the market. Profhilo not only boosts and hydrates the skin, it also remodels ageing and sagging tissue. It is used to improve skin quality & hydration but unlike skin boosters it can have a lifting and tightening effect.

How does it work?

Unlike dermal fillers which are used to restore volume loss and change facial shaping Profhilo works to stimulate collagen and elastin for a deep hydrating and moisturising effect resulting in improved skin quality, texture, laxity, leaving the skin with a beautiful glow.

Used to treat?

The most common areas of treatment include the face and neck but it can also be used for the décolletage, hands, arms, knees and abdomen area where its effect treats skin laxity. The treatment is suitable for men and women as well as for all ages.
