The first of its kind, Profhilo is a revolutionary ‘beneath the skin’ hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment, made with the patented NAHYCO technology. 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.


Dull, crepy, dehydrated, sagging or ageing tissue on the mid to lower face, neck, décolletage, hands or knees.


Profhilo is injected just below the skin’s surface over 2 sessions 4 weeks apart.

There are 5 injection points on each side of the face for Profhilo using the BAP technique. These are placed in the upper cheek, nasal base, lower cheek, jawline, and chin. The Profhilo BAP technique was clinically tested to ensure maximum efficiency and patient comfort.

After injection it disperses quickly beneath the skin to improve hydration without any need for massage. There is the chance that localised lumps can form where each of the injection sites have been. These lumps will subside usually within 4-6 hours after the treatment but they can last up to 24 hours.
