What is Profhilo?
Profhilo is an incredible, new award-winning skin bioremodelling treatment now available at EF MEDISPA. This unique injectable treatment uses high concentrations of natural Hyaluronic Acid (HA), enabling its powerful hydrating properties to stimulate tissue, encouraging long-lasting neocollagenesis. Profhilo can help to improve skin tone, texture, elasticity, firmness, hydration and radiance.
Profhilo works to rejuvenate and nourish dermal cells, providing long-lasting improvements to the health and appearance of your skin for up to 4-6 months after treatment. By boosting the skin’s own collagen production, skin is left feeling firm, hydrated and glowing!
All treatments are tailored to the individual and personal experiences and results may vary. We recommend a one to one consultation with our Treatment Coordinators to discuss your treatment options.
Why consider Profhilo?
Whilst Profhilo is a true breakthrough in anti-ageing treatments, it isn’t just beneficial to ageing skin – it offers many advantages to patients of all ages. Profhilo is an effective curative and preventative anti-ageing treatment that enhances skin health and vitality.
Profhilo works to improve your complexion by nourishing the dermal cells, resulting in radiant and rejuvenated skin. It can also help to combat the signs of ageing before they appear thanks to its intense hydrating capabilities. However, the most evident changes are seen when treating the appearance of lines, wrinkles, sagging, thinning and crepe-like skin. Profhilo effectively lifts and tightens the skin increasing firmness and elasticity with results that continue to improve for up to 6 months.

STEP BY STEP PROFHILO
1 NO OBLIGATION CONSULTATION
The first step is a complimentary consultation with one of knowledgeable Treatment Coordinators. During this initial consultation, you will be able to discuss your concerns and get advice on the Profhilo treatment. Alternatively, your Treatment Coordinator will discuss the ideal type of treatment that will help you to achieve your beauty goals.
2 MEET YOUR PRACTITIONER
Should you decide to move forward with the treatment, your next appointment with the Doctor or Nurse is going to be booked. During this appointment, your Medical Practitioner will be able to assess the area you wish to treat, take your full medical history into account and decide how to proceed with the treatment.
3 DURING THE TREATMENT
Your Doctor or fully qualified Nurse will apply topical anaesthetic cream, if they think it is necessary and then proceed with the treatment. The treatment involves injections of hyaluronic acid with a very fine needle into the chosen area. Profhilo is a quick and effective procedure, lasting up to 30 minutes. You will be able to notice results shortly after the treatment, that can last up to 6 months after the treatment.
4 AFTER THE TREATMENT
Following the treatment small raised lumps may appear. However, this should subside within 24-48 hours. Your Medical Practitioner will advise you to drink plenty of water, avoid prolonged sun exposure and stay away from saunas and steam rooms for at least one week after the treatment.
Profhilo Before & After
*Individual results may vary.
What is Profhilo?
The Profhilo treatment is made of natural Hyaluronic Acid (HA). The natural occurring substance is injected underneath the surface of the skin and works to smooth out fine and improve the tone and complexion of the skin.
Which areas can be treated with Profhilo?
Profhilo is a ground-breaking treatment that can be used to treat most areas of the body such as the face, neck and décolletage. Speak with our team of experts today in confidence to discuss the areas you wish to treat.
What are the benefits of Profhilo?
Profhilo differs from other injectable treatments – It is a biostimulator that uses the natural power of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) to nourish dermal cells. Results are gradual and long-lasting, with the HA working to hydrate and stimulate tissue for up to 6 months after treatment.
It offers a quick and effective procedure time, taking only 30 minutes. Treatment can be carried out on the face, neck, décolletage and on the body. Following treatment skin is left lifted, tightened and rejuvenated and the benefits to your skin will continue for 4-6 months.
What happens during the procedure?
At EF MEDISPA we offer our patients a complimentary consultation with one of our informative and friendly Treatment Coordinators to help anyone considering Profhilo Treatment make an informed decision. Your Treatment Coordinator will first establish your goals and preferences before creating a bespoke treatment plan to help address your concerns.
If you choose to proceed with a Profhilo Treatment you will meet with our fully-qualified Doctor or Nurse who will carry out your treatment. This will give you an opportunity to ask any additional questions during your appointment and our medical team will always be on hand to help and support you at all times.
Your Doctor or Nurse will take a full medical history before deciding how best to proceed. In rare circumstances, a topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the area to minimise discomfort if required.
The treatment itself involves a series of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) injections, containing a hybrid of 32mg high molecular weight and 32mg low molecular weight HA, using a very fine needle.
The procedure itself takes up to 30 minutes and results will begin to appear visible shortly after treatment. For effective results, we recommend 2 treatments of Profhilo, 3-6 weeks apart. Thereafter, we recommend that treatment is repeated every 4-6 months in order to maintain results. Improvements to the appearance of the skin will continue after each treatment for up to 6 months.
Profhilo, as with other injectable treatments, is not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding. We are also unable to perform this treatment on individuals with medical conditions that lower the body’s immune response or individuals undergoing therapy that is immunosuppressive.
