Profhilo is a revolutionary non-surgical 'beneath the skin' hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment. It is a unique hyaluronic acid injectable gel, which has a prolonged stimulating activity on the dermal skin cells. When injected into the skin, Profhilo stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity, improving and restoring skin firmness.
Profhilo has one of the highest hyaluronic acid concentrations on the market, boosting and hydrating the skin, as well as remodelling ageing and sagging tissue. This, in turn, promotes firmer and fresher looking skin from the inside, as well as reducing sagginess and dullness.
The most common areas of treatment include the face and neck, but Profhilo can also be used for the décolletage, hands, arms, knees and abdomen area where it would effectively treat skin laxity.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does Profhilo work?
Ultra-pure hyaluronic acid is precisely injected into the treatment area. Unlike wrinkle reducing and dermal filler treatments, Profhilo stimulates collagen and elastin, attracting water in the deeper layers of the skin.
As a stabilised product, Profhilo's activity on dermal cells will last longer than that of a non-stabilised gel. During this time the stimulation of four different types of collagen and elastin takes place by slow release of hyaluronic acid.
The stimulation results in significant tissue improvement. Therefore we cannot say that Profhilo is simply only a skin booster, as it also has a significant tightening / lifting effect on the tissue.
