How does Profhilo® work?

As we get older, our bodies lose the ability to produce as much hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin, which inevitably leads to signs of ageing with lines, folds, wrinkles and dull-looking skin.
Profhilo® uses ultra-pure hyaluronic acid gel that is injected just below the skin’s surface to stimulate cell receptors to produce more collagen and elastin.
This leads to firmer, brighter skin that will leave you looking fresh, feeling confident and it does not change the shape of your face.

Am I suitable for Profhilo®?

Profhilo® is suitable for most people, apart from those who are pregnant, breastfeeding or are immunocompromised.

It’s a fantastic option for skin rejuvenation in multiple areas of the face and body, but it’s not going to add volume or contour your face. If this is something you’re interested in, we can discuss dermal filler options at your consultation.

During this consultation, we’ll also take a detailed medical and aesthetic history to ensure Profhilo® is the best option for you.

What can I expect during the treatment?

Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed prior to treatment, and we’ll numb the areas where we plan to inject to keep discomfort to a minimum.
Profhilo® can be used on the face, neck, décolletage, hands, arms, knees and abdomen. It is delivered to the skin via 10 injection points and, as it spreads under the surface, Profhilo® gets to work on hydrating and rejuvenating your skin from within.

How long does Profhilo® take to work?

A minimum of two treatments are recommended, four months apart. Though it’s likely you’ll see improvements immediately after your first treatment, it’s not until three to four weeks after your second treatment that a lifting and tightening effect is fully developed. We advise having maintenance treatments every three months, but you can see results for up to six months.

How much downtime do you need after Profhilo® treatment?

You may experience slight swelling, redness and bruising around injection points, but no downtime or time off work is necessary following a Profhilo® treatment. As a precaution, it’s advisable not to apply makeup to treated areas for 24 hours following the procedure.

Are there any risks attached to Profhilo® treatments?

As with any type of treatment, there is always an element of risk. In extremely rare instances, a patient might experience an allergic reaction. For that reason, Dr Raquel will ask if you have a history of allergic reactions prior to treatment.

DISCLAIMER

We are all unique. This means that treatment plans, the results, downtime and recovery following treatment will vary from patient to patient. The information I provide is based on the experience I have gained from treating a wide variety of patients, both men and women, of different ages, and is based on an average treatment experience. For more accurate information about how the treatment experience would be for you, please book a one-to-one consultation with me.

Qualifications, Accolades and Experience

I qualified as dentist in 2007 and have since gained a Level 7 qualification in injectable treatments (the highest possible), so you can trust that I have the skills and knowledge to deliver your treatment safely and successfully.

I completed a six-month mentorship programme with Dr Lee Walker (a leader in the industry), which has ensured I am working with the most evidenced-based research in aesthetics. I also recently took part in an ultrasound and cadaver course, which allows me to see where blood vessels are and reduce the risk of complications.

In addition, I am a senior clinical mentor, an international speaker and a key opinion leader for a dermal filler brand, demonstrating my extensive experience training other medical aesthetic practitioners.

My team and I are fully trained and equipped to manage any adverse events that may occur, thanks to my training and membership of the Complications in Medical Aesthetic Collaborative (CMAC). You can trust you are in safe hands when you undergo any treatment at my clinic.

Accolades include being Highly Commended as Rising Star of the Year at the Aesthetics Awards 2023 and recognised as a finalist in 2022, being a finalist for Aesthetic Practitioner of the Year (Dentist) at the Aesthetic Medicine Awards 2023, and being given a WhatClinic Patient Service Award for 2022.
