Profhilo (Tightens and Hydrates your skin)
Remodel your look in 5 minutes
Profhilo is a patented technology and is the purest and one of the highest concentration of Hyaluronic acid compared to any other product thus enabling it to not only boost and hydrate your skin but also remodel sagging tissue. It tightens and hydrates all layers of the skin. Profhilo lasts in the skin around 28 days, during which time the slow release of hyaluronic acid produces 4 different types of collagen and elastin fibres, improving the tissues which give the skin its structure and texture. The results are that Profhilo can have a significant tightening/lifting effect on the skin.
Simple and Effective
Clinical data confirms improvement in skin texture, elasticity and hydration with an immediate tightening effect. It will brighten your skin and increase luminosity.
A specially developed injection technique reduces the number of injection sites and therefore reduces discomfort. It also reduces or eliminates downtime and the number of treatment sessions, making it a perfect lunchtime procedure.
Think of Profhilo as injectable Skincare, with Air-Brushed Results.
The objective with Profhilo is not simply to add volume to the skin, but first and foremost, to utilise the hydrating qualities of hyaluronic acid to retain water within the skin, boosting its quality and condition for a soft, dewy glow. However, in doing so, there are exciting longer-term benefits, as Profhilo can achieve remodelling of ageing and sagging skin tissue for a youthful look.
There are many areas of the body that respond well to Profhilo. Fantastic results have been achieved on the face, neck, décolleté, hands and arms.
Since its 2015 launch, Profhilo has won a number of industry awards for its innovative and effective results. It has been used worldwide and over 150,000 patients have been treated so far with no adverse reactions reported.

This is an excellent, affordable option for patients who want natural results with minimal downtime or discomfort. This is not a Dermal Filler, therefore it is the perfect treatment for those not looking to change the shape of the face. It is not Botox so no worries about a frozen look.

What does the PROFHILO procedure involve?
Prior to the treatment :
A topical anaesthetic can be applied for 20 minutes prior the treatment for additional comfort if needed.
Dr Jilani will carefully examine your skin to ensure you are a suitable candidate and will thoroughly explain the procedure, benefits and risks prior to the procedure.
The PROFHILO syringe is injected into precise locations into your skin using specific Bio Aesthetic Points technique (BAP) as described below.
The BAP technique maximises the diffusion in the malar and sub-malar areas by specifically chosen in anatomically respective areas involving 5 injections per side.
The gentle and slow injections offer maximum comfort during the treatment. In some areas that have a high chance of bruising, the special blunt needles (cannula) can be used. Once injected, the product immediately starts spreading due to the high concentration of HA and its cohesive nature.
You should avoid touching or applying make up on the treated area for 6 hours in order to prevent infection. The treatment areas can appear slightly bumpy and raised post-treatment. This will reduce by the next day. Specific aftercare instructions will be given during your visit by our clinic manager.
THE TREATMENT AT A GLANCE
Frequently asked questions
What type of product is PROFHILO?
PROFHILO is not a dermal filler, it is different from all other injectable substances as it has been engineered for “skin bio remodelling”. It is biocompatible because it is composed of highly pure grade hyaluronic acid produced by bio-fermentation. This fantastic treatment enables effective production of both your natural collagen and also your elastin which enables your skin to renew successfully from within. Due to its intensively high purity and the absence of additives, PROFHILO offers greater safety and therefore reduced side effects.
What is the downtime?
The downtime is minimal. The redness and swelling after treatment will generally subside within a couple of hours or maximum, up to one day.
How many treatments do I need?
It is recommended to have 2 sessions (one month apart) to achieve the maximum results. However, if the skin problems are severe, the third session could be done 2 months after the second session.
In order to maintain the results, one treatment session is advised every 6 months.
How long will it take to start seeing a result?
The results are usually seen after two quick treatment sessions, with a one-month interval between them. An increase in firmness, elasticity and an overall improvement in the quality of the skin is seen after the two treatments. Maintenance sessions are required 6-12 monthly depending on the degree of correction required, your age and lifestyle. Your doctor will provide you with a full treatment plan during your initial consultation.
