What is Profhilo and how does it work?
Profhilo is an injectable skin remodeling treatment that contains one of the highest concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) on the market, targeting skin that lacks volume and elasticity.
Instead of conventional fillers that plumps and fills wrinkles, the slow release of HA stimulates the production of collagen and elastin.
The primary function of Profhilo is to deeply moisturize and rejuvenate the skin by injecting a concentrated amount of Hyaluronic Acid into specific points on both sides of the face.
A skilled physician will evaluate the patient’s condition and suggest the most suitable course of treatment.
What is the difference between Profhilo and Dermal Fillers?
Profhilo is not intended for facial volumizing or contouring purposes. Instead, it evenly distributes Hyaluronic Acid throughout the facial skin.
This will result a plumper, radiant and youthful out look.
As we age, our body naturally produces less Collagen, Elastin, and Hyaluronic Acid.
It is used to preserve and prevent the skin from further development of lines by effectively transforming dull and saggy skin into a firmer and rejuvenated state.

I did profhilo and it works very well. Do your research on the review of the clinic and make an appointment with the doctor to understand more. BTW can clinics be recommended on this site?
Its better to do TONS of research and finding a good doctor before trying out profhilo . My sister-in-law did and even seem effective immediately but eventually after her skin started to sag unnaturally fast. My derm personally told me not to do as my skin looks okay and don't need for more. Some clinics are just marketing for money, but they don’t warn you about side effects. A good skin routine is first and foremost important.
Profhilo is a holy grail.
Huge difference to my complextion. I have done the Profhilo, chemical peels and lasers. My lines are all gone. Very well worth. Recommend !
I soooo love this Profhilo treatment. My skin looks so much more healthier and much younger.
