Profhilo

30 minutes  I  £300 for one treatment  I  £550 for 2 treatments

Winner of the most innovative treatment at the Aesthetic Awards in 2016, Profhilo is a highly concentrated injectable Hyaluronic Acid which differs from traditional dermal fillers. Profhilo works by stimulating the skin’s own collagen, so it takes several weeks before an improvement is noticed. After the first treatment the skin feels well hydrated, dewy and plump. The skin looks and feels softer, with a brighter, fresher complexion. Profhilo should be repeated after 4 weeks to give the best results. The lifting and tightening effect starts a few weeks after the second treatment, with the skin feeling firmer compared to before.

 

Profhilo is a treatment that helps to smooth out fine lines, improves skin texture and deeply hydrates the skin. Typically, the effects last around 6 months, when treatment can be repeated. Profhilo is not a replacement for a dermal filler - it is the "icing on the cake" giving a smoother texture and healthy glow to the skin.
