Profhilo® is a bio stimulator made from hyaluronic acid used to enhance the face and neck.

What is Profhilo®

Profhilo® is a revolutionary ‘beneath the skin’ hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment, made with the patented NAHYCO® technology. This results in a unique hyaluronic acid injectable gel, which has a prolonged stimulating activity on the dermal cells. When injected into skin, Profhilo® stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity and improve and restore firmness of the skin.

One of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market, Profhilo® not only boosts and hydrates the skin, but also remodels ageing and sagging tissue. The most common areas of treatment include the face and neck and can also be used for the décolletage, hands, arms, knees and abdomen area where it would effectively treat skin laxity. The treatment is suitable for men and women as well as offering skin benefits for patients of all ages.



How does Profhilo® work?

Ultra-pure hyaluronic acid is precisely injected into the area being treated. Unlike wrinkle reducing and dermal filler treatments, Profhilo® stimulates collagen and elastin, attracting water in the deeper layers of the skin.

As a stabilised product, the activity on dermal cells will last longer than that of a non-stabilised gel. During this time the stimulation of four different types of collagen and elastin takes place by slow release of hyaluronic acid.

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.


How much does Profhilo cost?

You will receive two treatments, 4 weeks apart from our qualified Registered Nurses who carry out this treatment, which involves specific injections at precise points.  The results will be visible after 4-12 weeks after the second treatment.


Each treatment costs $800, so a total of $1600 for your 2 x treatments.

What are the side effects?

There are some common side effects such as bruising, redness, swelling, hypersensitivity, temporary lumps and bumps. Other rare but possible side effects include hardening at the point of injection site, infection, allergy and vascular compromise.

How long does it last?

Result will last around 6-9 months, but they may vary between patient (depending on age, skin type and metabolism).

We recommend maintenance treatments at least once a year to help improve results.
