Profhilo: The Magic Bio-remodelling Treatment

Profhilo is incredibly popular because of its unique approach to skin rejuvenation and bio-remodelling that improves laxity and revitalises tired-looking skin.   Or so it claims.   In the rapidly evolving world of medical aesthetics, any treatment that claims to offer unique, significant benefits is always going to be in high demand.  The problem is they all claim similar ground-breaking results!  This blog exists to look beyond the marketing claims, and see if there really is a treatment worth having.  I’ve done the hard work so you don’t have to.  So read on to find out what it can do for you (if anything).


Understanding Profhilo: The Basics


Profhilo is a hyaluronic acid (HA)-based product that differs significantly from traditional hyaluronic acid-based fillers. In fact, it isn’t marketed as a filler.  Once injected, ts composition allows it to flow under the skin to cover an extended area to improve skin quality, hydration, and elasticity across the face (it can be used on the decolletage and body too).  The treatment is based on the concept of bio-remodelling, which involves the stimulation of collagen and production of elastin. This stimulation results in significant improvements in skin tone, texture, and hydration over a course of treatment. The key to Profhilo's success is claimed to be in its high concentration of ultra-pure hyaluronic acid, which is free from chemical cross-linking agents.  Indeed it is unlike any other hyaluronic acid product, consisting of two different sized elements of ultra-pure hyaluronic acid thermally bonded.  It is a unique formulation and certainly has a good evidence base behind its science and its results.  I delayed introducing it in my own practice (as with all the treatments I do) to be assured of its benefits and its scientific rigour, and to ensure that it delivered the claimed results.


The Dual-Action Magic of Profhilo


What sets Profhilo apart from other treatments is its dual-action rejuvenation process. Firstly, it provides an immediate, albeit temporary, improvement in skin hydration and firmness. Secondly, and more importantly, it stimulates the production of four different types of collagen and elastin. This biological stimulation results in long-lasting improvements in skin quality. The treatment is incredibly versatile, suitable for the face, neck, hands, and even areas traditionally difficult to treat, such as the upper arms and knees.


Why Profhilo Appeals to Most People


Minimal Downtime and Invasiveness

One of the most appealing aspects of Profhilo is its minimal downtime. The procedure is quick, typically taking less than 30 minutes, and involves only five injection points on each side of the face. This simplicity minimizes discomfort and allows patients to return to their daily activities immediately, making it an attractive option for those with busy lifestyles.


Broad Applicability

Profhilo is suitable for a wide range of ages and skin types. It can be particularly beneficial for individuals noticing the first signs of ageing, such as decreased skin elasticity and fine lines. However, it's also effective for more mature skin, providing hydration and a more youthful appearance. Its ability to improve skin texture and tone without altering facial contours makes it a universally appealing choice, and almost anyone in their 30s onwards can benefit from the bio-remodelling.  Many people will not be without it!


Natural Results

The subtle yet effective results of Profhilo are a significant draw. Unlike traditional fillers that add volume or change facial contours, Profhilo enhances the skin's natural qualities. The treatment leads to a more rested and radiant appearance, with results that look natural and are noticeable to the individual without appearing overtly treated.


Safety Profile

Profhilo's safety profile is exemplary. Its biocompatibility, owing to the natural role of hyaluronic acid in the body, significantly reduces the risk of allergic reactions or adverse effects. Additionally, its unique formulation without chemical cross-linking agents ensures a lower risk of complications.


Clinical Evidence and Endorsements


The effectiveness and benefits of Profhilo have been documented in numerous clinical studies. These studies highlight the treatment's ability to significantly improve skin quality, hydration, and elasticity. Aesthetic professionals and dermatologists widely endorse Profhilo, further validating its efficacy and safety. I have reviewed the evidence - as with all things aesthetics, it's not in the same league of robustness as full clinical trials, but within the aesthetics it has a good evidence base, far better than some treatments that are done. There is no concerning or negative evidence.


Incorporating Profhilo into Aesthetic Regimens


Profhilo can be a standalone treatment or part of a comprehensive aesthetic regimen. It complements other treatments, such as botulinum toxin injections and dermal fillers, enhancing overall results. For individuals looking to achieve the best possible outcomes, combining Profhilo with a tailored skincare routine, including products like vitamin C serums and sun protection, can amplify the benefits.




Profhilo’s ability to improve skin quality from within, combined with minimal downtime, broad applicability, and natural results, makes it an exciting option for almost anyone looking to enhance their skin's health and appearance. Whether you're just beginning to notice the signs of aging or looking for a way to maintain your skin's youthful appearance, Profhilo offers a promising solution that aligns with the needs and desires of today's aesthetic clients, and is backed by countless delighted and devoted recipients.  As with all my treatments I will always steer patients away from those treatments I feel are unproven, unsafe, or unnecessary, guiding them instead to those which will be beneficial.  In the case of Profhilo I am comfortable recommending it to most.
