Profhilo Treatment and what to expect…

Profhilo Treatment and what to expect…


Profhilo treatment is now available at the Hedox Clinic with our level 7 aesthetic doctor, Dr Stephen Humble. We are able to offer Profhilo treatment at our Harley Street Clinic and our Twickenham Clinic.

Profhilo is a stabilised form of ultra-pure hyaluronic acid made with the patented NAHYCO® technology that is precisely injected, beneath the skin. Profhilo treatment works at a cellular level, stimulating cells and the production of new collagen and elastin cells and attracting water to the deeper layers of the skin.  The result of Profhilo treatment is tighter, brighter, firmer, younger-looking skin that is more hydrated.


What happens during my Profhilo Treatment?PROFILHO Treatment

Firstly, you would have a consultation with Dr Humble, this would be a Zoom consultation to discuss your requirements and concerns, discuss the treatment in detail and agree that you wish to go ahead.  At the Profhilo treatment itself, your skin would be cleaned and Dr Humble may apply a numbing cream to maximise comfort during the procedure, then he will mark the areas to be treated and inject the Profhilo Hyaluronic Acid gel at the strategic points using a tiny needle.

The entire Profhilo treatment process usually takes around 30 minutes and has no required recovery time, so you can get back to your day straight after treatment.  You will need two Profhilo treatments 4 weeks apart.



Does Profhilo treatment hurt?

Profhilo is an injectable treatment, so like any injectable treatment, there may be some mild discomfort, but most people find it easily tolerable, especially with the numbing cream. There can be a short-lived tingling/stinging sensation after each injection. However, any uncomfortable feelings are fleeting and over very quickly.


How long do the results take to show with Profhilo treatment?

The amount of time the Profhilo takes to break down varies from person to person and location of where it is injected, as well as the natural levels of hyaluronidase in the body. You will need two Profhilo treatments 4 weeks apart and the full benefits will not be obvious until both Profhilo treatments have been completed, however improvements are often noticed after the first session. After the first treatment, your skin starts working, producing new collagen and elastin to give your skin a firmer, smoother, plumper complexion.

Profhilo stimulates your own cells to produce collagen, so the results are not instant like fillers or anti-wrinkle injections, however, the results get better as time goes on leaving you with a plump, youthful appearance.  Over days and weeks following Profhilo treatment, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles significantly improve, giving you firmer, more youthful skin.

Is there any downtime with Profhilo treatment and what to expect after your Profhilo treatment?

You may experience mild swelling or bruising, this almost always goes down within a few days. We recommend that you do not take part in any intense exercise for 24 hours after your Profhilo treatment to make sure you don’t disturb or displace the Profhilo. Also try and avoid touching the areas that have been injected.
