Profhilo Skin Booster

An injectable anti-ageing treatment made from hyaluronic acid, for skin that is losing its’ elasticity and firmness with age. Expect improvement in skin tone and hydration, as well as firmness and smoothed fine lines and wrinkles.

Profhilo is fast becoming one of the most popular facial treatments in the aesthetics world. Made from 100% hyaluronic acid, Profhilo encourages your skin to remodel from the inside out, improving skin quality and texture in as little as 1 month.

Profhilo contains one of the highest concentrations of stabilised hyaluronic acid on the market. It is known as a “bio-remodeller”- meaning it tackles skin laxity and hydration, achieving tissue restoration without volumising.

It is injected just underneath the surface of the skin where it disperses quickly and reacts with your own tissue to instantly boost hydration. Over the four weeks post-treatment, phase two kicks in and the product goes to work boosting elastin and collagen production. This effectively remodels the skin, giving it a plumper, smoother, firmer and overall glowy appearance.

For best results- 2 sessions are required, 4-6 weeks apart. Results last up to 12 months and then regular touch-ups are required for maintenance.

Profhilo can be used to treat many areas of the body, the most common being the so called ‘5-point-facelift’. See below for information on other areas available.

Here at Castelnau Dentists we offer treatment in the form of 'Dermal Fillers' which are specifically designed for these trouble-some areas. Treatment is provided by Christie Lawton - who is an experienced Facial Aesthetics practitioner.

Profhilo Skin Booster

How does Profhilo work?

Profhilo is thermally bonded and not chemically bonded; meaning it acts as a hydrator, not a filler. It is injected just underneath the surface of the skin where it disperses quickly and reacts with your own tissue to instantly boost hydration. 

Over the four weeks post-treatment, phase two kicks in and the product goes to work boosting elastin and collagen production. This effectively remodels the skin, giving it a plumper, smoother, firmer and overall glowy appearance.

How many treatments are needed?

For best results- 2 sessions are required, 4-6 weeks apart. Results last up to 12 months and then regular touch-ups are required for maintenance.

If patients choose not to continue treatments after the full treatment, the product will gradually break down and your natural ageing process will continue. 

What is the cost of this treatment?

1 session = £250

2 sessions (for best results) = £450

What is the best age to have Profhilo?

No matter your age, if you are trying to combat signs of ageing or invest in a preventive anti-ageing treatment, the Profhilo skin booster is a fantastic way to improve your complexion.

Most dermatologists would suggest that those aged between 30-50 are the best candidates, however there is no specific age limits and patients in their 60’s will see an improvement in their complexion, although not as significant as in younger patients.

Can you have other aesthetics treatments alongside Profhilo e.g. anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers?

Yes. In fact, Profhilo can enhance the effects of other treatments if used in conjunction- complimenting their effects, not competing with them.

Is Profhilo right for me?

Profhilo improves signs of aging and is especially good for sagging skin on the lower two thirds of the face. It can help to tighten the jawline and reduce the appearance of smile and laughter lines.

Profhilo is also a fantastic treatment for dry skin, thanks to its use of hyaluronic acid which helps your skin to retain water- leaving you with a glowing complexion. It’s a great choice for those who already have a solid skincare routine and keep a good diet as it enhances your natural skin. Having a healthy lifestyle will also help to maintain the appearance of your skin booster for longer.

The results of a Profhilo skin booster are not as dramatic as what can be achieved from dermal fillers, but if you are looking for a more subtle way to elevate your skin, Profhilo is the choice for you.

Does Profhilo treatment hurt?

Profhilo is injected just under the skin using very fine needles at pre-determined points. It is relativley painless and there is usually no need for topical pain relief creams prior to treatment. The treatment itself is very quick, taking only about 10 minutes. On the face only five injection points are necessary on each side of the face to give maximum results.

Are there any risks and side effects with Profhilo?

There are no long-term side effects. Profhilo is metabolised by the body completely.

No allergy test is required prior to treatment. The risk of allergic reactions is substantially reduced because Profhilo does not contain any synthetic chemicals which some people might react to.

Some people may experience redness, slight bruising, tenderness as well as itching at the injection sites but these will be temporary and should resolve within 24 hours.

What are the contraindications associated with Profhilo?

  • Active infection at the site being injected
  • Pregnant or breast feeding women
  • Patients with autoimmune diseases 
  • Anybody under the age of 18
