What is Profhilo and how does it work?

As skin boosters go, Profhilo is one of the best. Its popularity is easy to understand – as the injectable treatment with the highest amount of hyaluronic acid on the market, it can transform dehydrated skin from within. It can also firm the skin on the face, tightening it to reduce the appearance of sagging jowls, wrinkles, and loose skin.

Commonly used on the face, neck, and lower neckline but also able to treat areas on the arms and hands, it has next to zero downtime.

So, is Profhilo right for you?

What is Profhilo?

Profhilo is an injectable skin remodelling treatment with a focus on rejuvenation and hydration. It uses hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring compound, to promote collagen production. As we age, the volume of HA we naturally produce declines. By boosting the levels beneath the skin, it can improve the elasticity of the skin for a smoother and firmer appearance.

The procedure is ideal for those wanting to treat concerns such as wrinkles and sagging skin, especially in the face and décolleté (the lower neckline). It can offer fewer risks, lower downtime, and more affordable costs than cosmetic surgery, but with more visible effects than topical creams.

How does Profhilo work?

At a consultation, your clinician will talk through the procedure and consider your suitability for Profhilo.

You may be advised to avoid exercise, hot showers, or saunas, as well as skincare treatments like microdermabrasion, microneedling, and chemical peels, before the treatment to minimise complications and help promote the best results.

During the treatment

During your Profhilo treatment, your clinician will start by gently cleaning your skin. The procedure will then involve the following steps:

  • A topical, local anaesthetic can be applied to your skin to numb the area, though this isn’t always necessary. This can vary based on the clinic.

  • Next, the clinician will mark the points of injection on the treatment area, based on your desired results.

  • Hyaluronic acid (HA) will be injected at the chosen points with a fine needle.


After your session, you’ll typically require a follow-up treatment about four weeks later.

There’s no downtime with this procedure and you can return to your normal daily activities straight away, although you may experience some minor numbness, bruising and swelling. You should avoid touching the injection areas or doing physical exercise after the procedure to ensure the Profhilo isn’t disturbed.

If you notice any inflammation, irritation, or severe bruising, you should contact your clinician for advice. While some stinging may persist shortly after the treatment, this shouldn’t remain for long.

The benefits of Profhilo

Profhilo can offer multiple benefits, including:

  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles: By stimulating the collagen, Profhilo treatments can help rejuvenate the skin.

  • Treatment of sagging jaw and jowls: Collagen production can also help the skin to appear tighter with improved elasticity.

  • Boost of hydration and brightness: Profhilo is a form of injectable moisturiser, boosting hydration to the three main layers of skin. Hyaluronic acid is used by the body, naturally, to moisturise the skin.

  • Promotion of firmer, smoother skin: Skin can appear smoother, firmer, and brighter due to the rejuvenation of the collagen and the moisturising properties of the procedure.

Alternative treatments


Dermal fillers are low-risk gel-injections used to contour and fill out the face, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. There are different types available, from fillers designed to hydrate to those that aim to increase volume. Costs can vary based on the type of filler you choose, but are in a similar price range to Profhilo, with similar recovery times.

Non-surgical facelift

If you’re looking for a non-invasive procedure, a non-surgical facelift could also be right for you. Some non-surgical facelift options include:

  • Thermage: a non-invasive laser treatment, with minimal downtime, requiring top-ups.
  • HIFU: a skin tightening, ultrasound therapy, with results lasting up to two years.

Chemical peels

Chemical peels can be a more permanent solution to combating deep wrinkles, improving skin tone and texture. However, deeper skin peels may have a slightly longer recovery time and may not provide the full range of results compared to Profhilo, such as adding volume. Chemical peels vary in cost but can be a more affordable alternative.


Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment designed to target loose skin, blemishes, fine lines, and acne scars by promoting collagen production. The treatment is slightly less invasive than Profhilo, with results focusing more on skin health. Microneedling costs are usually like Profhilo.
