‘Vogue Williams and Trinny Woodhall both got the Profhilo ‘Glow Up’ and  it is by far one of their favourite treatments’

Why have Profhilo?

Profhilo is a revolutionary bio-remodelling injectable treatment that helps to hydrate and return the elasticity to your skin, reversing the signs of ageing and slowing down the ageing process. It adds gentle plumpness and radiance and gives you a healthy complexion.

Think ‘plump, hydrated glowing skin’. The treatment is minimally invasive and usually, after just one treatment there is a significant difference in skin tone and texture and very little recovery time is needed. Profhilo works by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, helping sagging tissue return to its former glory.

Profhilo hydrates skin from the inside and has been described by dermatologists as an injectable moisturiser.

What is the main difference between Profhilo and fillers?

Both Profhilo and fillers are anti-ageing injectable treatments with hyaluronic acid being the main ingredient. Profhilo works very differently to fillers though, because it is made of 100% pure hyaluronic acid, while dermal fillers have other components added.

The pure hyaluronic acid in Profhilo means that it blends into our skin seamlessly and distributes itself evenly spreading under the skin and bathing the skin cells in the 100% pure hyaluronic acid. The treatment helps to retain moisture levels in the skin whilst boosting the production of collagen and elastin, essential skin proteins, to refresh the skin from the inside-out.

Another difference is that dermal fillers will target one area at a time, whereas Profhilo will hydrate and tighten the whole face below the forehead. Once Profhilo has been injected it starts to spread beneath the skin, moisturising the facial areas. Profhilo does not affect the contours of the face like fillers. Fillers define the shape of the face, lifting and adding volume, whereas Profhilo improves skin quality without giving extra volume so will not change your appearance.

Profhilo attracts water to the deep layers of the skin whilst stimulating four different kinds of collagen and elastin which results in tightening, lifting and a luminous glow.

The slow release of hyaluronic acid which stimulates the collagen and elastin production will produce significant tissue improvement in skin laxity, hydration, firmness and smoothness and tighten the skin.

What is involved in the Profhilo procedure?

Two types of hyaluronic acid are injected into the skin in tiny drops and left to dissipate for about 12 hours which will lead to an improvement in fine lines, and wrinkles and improve the overall skin texture. Profhilo is highly recommended for those who have tired or dull skin. It is a treatment that improves skin tone and texture, giving your skin a more radiant and brighter glow. Profhilo adds firmness, rehydration and elasticity to the skin.

This revolutionary treatment also works its ‘magic’ on the décolletagé, neck, hands, arms, knees and abdomen. It will help with early signs of skin ageing, dehydrated skin, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, and thin skin that lacks volume and plumpness. 

How quickly are the results seen and how long do they last?

Some changes will be seen after the first treatment but full results will be seen 4 weeks after the second treatment. Results will last approximately four to six months and maintenance is therefore advised every four to six months.

The treatment has a unique ability to enhance collagen and elastin formation, whereas most other injectable skin treatments have been shown to just build collagen. Elastin and collagen fibres form the structure for our skin which deplete as we age, therefore Profhilo targets these aspects of ageing in our skin that other treatments have not been able to target.

Whilst lifting skin, improving firmness, tightness and elasticity, Profhilo also produces a flawless finish when applying makeup. Profhilo can be used by anyone from their mid-20s that wants to restore skin elasticity, target fine lines and wrinkles and have a natural glow.

What to expect during and after treatment

Profhilo treatment consists of just two sessions, four weeks apart. Each session lasts approximately 30 minutes. One of the many benefits of this treatment is the minimal recovery time and the specially developed injection technique that is used at Dr Kate’s clinic reduces any discomfort from the treatment. After the treatment there may be a small amount of swelling or bruising to the targeted areas which will last for one to two days. As well as applying your SPF 50, you should not wear makeup for 12 hours after the treatment and avoid any heat activities such as exercise, steam and sauna for 24 hours.

Why choose Dr. Kate Aesthetics in London for Profhilo

Dr Kate has been using Profhilo in her practice for years and she and her patients have been thrilled with the resultant slowing down of the ageing process and the beautiful healthy glow they have achieved whilst maintaining a very natural appearance.

Dr Kate is an official provider of Profhilo and was trained by HA-Derma. Her clinic is listed on the official Profhilo website. If you are considering having a Profhilo treatment it is important that the healthcare professional is trained in the official technique and has purchased the profhilo direct from HA-Derma or an authorised pharmacy. HA-Derma are the exclusive UK & Ireland distributor / training provider of IBSA who manufacture Profhilo.

A word of caution:

A few months ago IBSA and HA-Derma alerted us that counterfeit Profhilo is currently being sold in Europe and Asia. Please find here an official communication from IBSA regarding this matter.

The counterfeit packaging and syringe are almost the exact copy of the original. It is very difficult to recognise the differences even for the trained eyes. The content of the syringes is unknown and can be different from box to box. Due the patented technology used by IBSA to produce Profhilo, it is impossible to recreate the injectable product. This is a very serious issue. Practitioners purchasing the product from unauthorised suppliers are ‘going blind’ when injecting it as they will not be able to differentiate the counterfeit from the genuine products. This is not safe practice. The major insurance companies won’t cover any claims if the products used came from outside the official supply chain. The only way how to guarantee the authenticity and safety of the product is to purchase Profhilo directly from HA-Derma or from authorised pharmacies HA-Derma works with.
