Profhilo Treatment

Skin Boosters

Skin boosters are an injectable treatment that is designed to deliver deep skin hydration, natural glow and radiance. 

This is a relatively new treatment concept which has become a lot more popular over the last few years. 

How Skin Boosters Work

Skin booster injections are a soft, gel-like substance called Hyaluronic Acid (HA). This is a substance that occurs naturally in the skin and holds incredible amounts of moisture. However, it depletes with age, which is what causes skin to appear lined or loose with a dryer texture.

Microinjections of deeply hydrating hyaluronic acid restores the moisture in the skin, which improves its elasticity, firmness and radiance.

It’s not really comparable to applying moisturiser – the injections can penetrate much deeper and last longer.

When applied using a mesotherapy technique of tiny injections, the process of delivering skin boosters also triggers the skin’s own repair and tightening mechanisms, which enhances the result.

Benefits of Skin Boosters

The most common uses of skin boosters are for facial rejuvenation. However, this is a versatile treatment that can be used to treat many different skin areas e.g. neck, décolletage, backs of the hands. They are safe for all skin types, ages and genders.

Depending on the treatment chosen, some of the potential benefits include:

  • More radiant complexion
  • Healthier skin tone
  • Reduction in visible lines and wrinkles
  • Tighter, lifted skin
  • Better hydration – a flattering ‘glow’
  • Firmer skin texture
  • Softer skin with more elasticity
  • Reduction in patchy pigmentation



The first of its kind, Profhilo® is a revolutionary ‘beneath the skin’ hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment. This results in a unique hyaluronic acid injectable gel, which has a prolonged stimulating activity on the dermal cells. When injected into skin, Profhilo stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity and improve and restore firmness of the skin.

One of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market, Profhilo not only boosts and hydrates the skin, but also remodels ageing and sagging tissue. The most common areas of treatment include the face and neck and can also be used for the décolletage, hands, arms, knees and abdomen area where it would effectively treat skin laxity. The treatment is suitable for men and women as well as offering skin benefits for patients of all ages.

How Does Profhilo Work?

Ultra-pure hyaluronic acid is precisely injected into the area being treated. 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, the 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.

What does Profhilo treatment involve?

The treatment is injected using fine needles, directly beneath the skin, at five specific points on each side of the face. The procedure is mostly pain-free, which means that there is typically no need to apply a pain relief cream as with other treatments. The whole procedure should only take approximately 10 minutes.

If being used on the face, five points of injection are needed on both sides to provide the best results.

A single course of Profhilo involves 2 injectable treatments 4 weeks apart, after which you can expect to see an intense hydration. It makes the skin glow, fine lines can disappear and you’ll notice smoother, tighter skin. Courses of two treatments can be repeated every six months as needed to maintain the results.

Is there any downtime?

Profhilo is very well-tolerated by most patients and there is no downtime after treatment. For 24-48 hours after your treatment you may have small bumps that resemble ‘bee stings’ under the skin where the Profhilo slowly disperses into the tissues, as with any injections there maybe risks of small bruising.

24 hours before treatment, alcohol, aspirin and anti-inflammatory medication should be avoided as they can increase the risk of bruising.
