What is Profhilo & how does it differ from Fillers?

Injectable moisturisers are one of the newest non-invasive treatments promising brighter, bouncier and smoother skin. Less daunting than Botox, and less extreme than fillers, skin boosters such as Profhilo are hyaluronic based solutions that are injected into the skin to improve the appearance of the skin on your face, neck, decolletage and hands. They work from the inside out, awakening skin cells to replenish, revive and rejuvenate. Profhilo is swiftly becoming one of the most requested skin treatments in clinics across the country, but how exactly does it work and what sets it apart from other injectable treatments?

How does Profhilo work?

If the expensive face cream is no longer cutting it, Profhilo may be the natural next step on your skincare journey. Profhilo is made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a potent moisturising factor naturally found in skin, muscle and joints. Its ability to draw 1000 times its own weight in water into the skin makes it ideal for binding and retaining water molecules, hydrating the skin from within to leave it fresh and radiant.

We all naturally produce and break down hyaluronic acid every day, but as we age, the process gets a little sluggish. Profhilo is injected at 5 points on each side of the face and spreads evenly throughout the layers of the skin drawing water along the way. This approach plumps the skin, diminishes fine lines and wrinkles whilst boosting the skin’s radiance and dewiness – delivering a long-lasting serum-type effect, but without the serum.

The key difference between Profhilo and Dermal Fillers

Whilst traditional dermal fillers also contain hyaluronic acid, the key difference between the two treatments is that Profhilo doesn’t add volume or change the structure of the face. Dermal fillers are used to augment a specific area via a lifting and volumising effect. They do give the skin greater luminosity, but Profhilo takes a more holistic approach for widespread improvement.

Profhilo contains a form of hyaluronic acid that is produced in a different way to traditional methods, allowing the hyaluronic acid to disperse evenly throughout the skin to produce more collagen and elastin, giving the skin a juicy, smooth quality. This can be used in conjunction with dermal fillers to add volume and structure whilst improving the overall quality of the skin.

Which is right for you?

Ultimately the decision depends on your concerns and your treatment goals. Profhilo is incredibly popular with the more mature age group as it gives beautiful hydration to the skin, softens fine lines and plumps the skin. If your priorities are to smooth skin texture, minimise fine lines and achieve a radiant complexion, Profhilo is an excellent option. However, if you’ve lost volume in the face and would like to restore a beautifully balanced profile, dermal fillers will likely be the most appropriate treatment pathway. Practitioners love to use Profhilo in conjunction with fillers for a healthy, radiant complexion that beautifully showcases the results of the dermal fillers.

Both Dermal Fillers and Profhilo are excellent treatment options – you should consult with a practitioner who will help you decide which is most suitable for you. Click here to book a consultation.
