PROFHILO® is an award-winning treatment which was specifically developed for treating loose and sagging skin, creating a firmer and more lifted look.
It is an injectable treatment which is based on hyaluronic acid, but is quite unlike anything else on the market.
Is it a filler?
PROFHILO® shares some similarities with the properties of skin fillers. It is an injectable product which can be used to volumise and lift the skin. However, it does so without ‘pumping up the volume’. It’s far more subtle, as it actually works to stimulate the skin’s own production of collagen and elastin, rather than simply adding volume of its own.
PROFHILO® treatment is not just about replenishing lost volume, but instead works to remodel the skin. Results include lifting and tightening, as the skin gains a firmer texture and consistency.
Is it a skin booster?
PROFHILO® also shares some similarities with injectable skin boosters. It can hydrate and moisturise the skin from within, helping it to recover a more youthful glow. This function makes it a very flattering procedure for clients whose skin is becoming a bit dull and lacklustre. It can improve fine lines and promote younger and fresher-looking skin. However, no skin booster can provide the lifting and tightening effects which also come with Profhilo.
Where can it be used?
PROFHILO® is a good choice for rejuvenating the face and upper body and can also help reduce crepey skin, delivering a smoother, tighter and firmer appearance. Popular areas include:
- Neck, chest, décolleté
- Hands and knees
This treatment is now available with Dr Britt Vardy in our Harley Street and Putney clinics
“…really this could benefit virtually every patient I see!! There is no downtime and is a great treatment for the summer as it doesn’t matter if patients have a tan.”
A course of 2 sessions is recommended for the best results. These are normally carried out 4 weeks apart.

PROFHILO® treatment is very well-tolerated by most patients.
Side-effects are few and temporary. These may include localised redness, swelling or bruising.
Most clients return straight to normal daily activities after treatment. However, we do advise not to wear makeup for the first 24 hours after treatment. Also refrain from touching the injection site. This is due to the low risk of infection.
We also recommend avoiding hot, wet or sweating activities on the day of treatment (i.e. gym, running, sauna, swimming, steam).
