What Makes Profhilo Different?
Profhilo® is a unique skin remodelling treatment that works by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin in the skin through the slow release of Hyaluronic Acid (HA).
Unlike other anti-ageing injectables that use fillers to add volume and stretch out the skin, Profhilo uses Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body to hydrate, firm and actually rebuild new, younger-looking skin cells.
This works on reversing the signs of ageing at a cellular level, stimulating new collagen and elastin cells, significantly improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and giving you firmer, more youthful skin on your face.
With dermal fillers, the results tend to be very localised because the gel only stays in the area in which it has been injected. However Hyaluronic Acid is different. Once injected it disperses evenly throughout the skin, so the effects are visible throughout your whole face, giving a much more even anti-ageing result.
What Problems Can Profhilo Help With?
Profhilo is an excellent anti-ageing treatment, clinically proven to help with a wide range of ageing symptoms. It acts as a hydrator rather than a traditional dermal filler, and is therefore fantastic for those with tired, dull and ageing skin, as it provides overall more plump and luminous skin.
Examples of some of the signs of ageing that Profhilo can be used for include:
- Wrinkles such as crows feet, smoker’s lines, smile lines and frown lines.
- Saggy, loose skin – on your face, decolletage, neck, arms or hands.
- Dull, dehydrated looking skin.
- Sunken skin that needs more volume.

How Profhilo Works
As you age your body starts to produce less collagen and elastin – the cells that give your skin its structure and firmness. When these cells start to reduce, your skin can no longer hold its appearance and the first signs of ageing, such as fine lines and wrinkles, start to appear.
Profhilo works right at the root cause of the problem – stimulating collagen and elastin production and increasing the elasticity of your skin.
The Profhilo is injected just below the skin’s surface in only 2 sessions over a period of 4 weeks. It disperses quickly to boost and instantly hydrate your skin, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles and resulting in improved skin texture.
Profhilo is the first BDDE-free stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) based product for treating skin laxity. With one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market (64mg / 2ml) it is not only amazing at boosting and hydrating the skin but it is also one of the most effective products out there for remodelling the ageing and sagging tissue.
Hyaluronic Acid – A Safer Anti-Ageing Injectible
Profhilo has been voted the best treatment of 2019 by The Times, and is incredibly safe, due to the formulation of hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally, and the levels of HA in the body are balanced by an enzyme known as hyaluronidase, which breaks down the hyaluronic acid molecules.
This is also the substance that breaks down Profhilo fillers over time, making it the least disruptive form of filler as the body is already equipped to work with the main ingredients.
HA is also the substance we use in our dermal fillers, as they are biodegradable, malleable and the safest form of dermal filler on the market.

The Profhilo Treatment Journey
The first step in your Profhilo anti-ageing journey is to book a consultation with Dr Shirin Lakhani, our medical director who carries out all of our Profilo treatments.
Dr. Shirin will talk to you about what it is you want to achieve from your treatment, as well as making sure you’re a suitable candidate for Profile enhancement treatment. She will talk you through the process and collaborate with you to find a treatment plan that works for you.
This extensive consultation also gives you a chance to get to know Dr. Shirin and the staff at Elite Aesthetics and see our purpose-built clinic in peaceful Greenhithe, Kent.
Above all, we want you to feel comfortable and safe during your treatment here with us at Elite Aesthetics, and to ensure that you’re happy with us as your aesthetic practitioners.
Before Your Profhilo Treatment
If you’re happy with your treatment plan then your Profhilo appointment can be booked in.
Before your treatment, you should avoid blood thinners like aspirin and other anti-inflammatories like Ibuprofen or Aleve, fish oil, multivitamins or vitamin E for at least a day beforehand, as they can increase the appearance of bruising after the treatment.
During Your Profhilo Treatment
During your treatment, Dr Shirin can apply a numbing cream to make sure the procedure is comfortable for you. She will mark the areas to be treated and then inject the Profhilo filler using a tiny needle. This can cause some mild discomfort, but most people find it easily tolerable, especially when numbing cream is used.
The entire treatment process usually takes under 30 minutes and has no required recovery time, so you can get back to your day straight after treatment.
After Your Profhilo Treatment
After treatment, you may experience mild swelling or bruising, although this usually goes down within a few days, leaving you with a plump, youthful appearance.
You should try and avoid touching the area & or taking part in any intense exercise for 24 hours after treatment to make sure you don’t disturb or displace the Profhilo filler.
The amount of time the filler takes to break down varies from person to person depending on the volume, type and location of filler injected, as well as the natural levels of hyaluronidase in the body. Generally, Profhilo fillers will last for around six months, though optimum results can vary from around three to eighteen months.
