Profhilo Lancashire: At CAREFORSKIN, we are passionate about offering our patients the most innovative, effective and safe treatments for anti-ageing and facial beautification. Injectable treatments have become widely popular all over the UK and these include wrinkle-smoothing injections and dermal fillers. However, in recent years, a new generation of skin revitalisation substances have come to the fore and help the skin to repair itself from within, naturally. One such treatment we use at our Clitheroe and Burnley clinics is Profhilo.
What is Profhilo?
Profhilo® is a unique and exclusive skin re-modelling treatment, especially created for those with ageing skin which lacks in volume and elasticity. It is often referred to as ‘injectable skincare’ or ‘injectable moisturiser’.
As we age, vital stores of collagen and elastin are depleted in vast amounts and these substances keep the skin toned, plump and youthful-looking. Over time, the loss of these substances can cause the skin to become thin, dry and wrinkled. By stimulating the production of collagen and elastin through a slow release of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Profhilo® can significantly improve the hydration of the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
A treatment with Profhilo® needs to be administered in 2 doses, 4 weeks apart and is placed in 5 entry points within the areas of concern. Over a course of weeks, you should see your skin take on more of a ‘plump’ and luminous appearance with an improved tone and texture. Results can last up to 12 months.
What’s the difference between traditional fillers and Profhilo?
Dermal fillers are contained in a gel-like substance and tend to be thicker and more viscous than Profhilo®. This is because dermal fillers are volume building substances which can significantly change the shape of the face when used in areas such as the cheeks, chin, nose and temples. They create more of a scaffold for the skin, lifting and sculpting the area of concern as well as adding volume.
Dermal fillers contain ‘cross-linking’ ingredients to make them thicker and denser so should be used in a different way than non-cross linked HA fillers.
Profhilo® is not cross linked and is therefore more fluid, acting as a skin rejuvenator (rather like liquid-skincare) and encourages the skin to ‘mend’ itself from within. It can be used in a larger area of concern for an overall improvement of the skin’s architecture.
As we start losing a significant amount of collagen, elastin and HA after we reach 30, we will start to see the signs of ageing relatively early on. However, at this age, dermal fillers may not be the right solution as our facial structure may still be satisfactory, therefore, a ‘building’ filler might not be necessary or indeed, appropriate.
Profhilo® can be used as a preventative measure to safeguard against ageing and can be used without adding volume to specific areas of the face. Anyone from the age of 30 who is looking to improve their skin’s health but without adding volume, can be looking to Profhilo® to offer a restorative solution to early ageing skin issues.
There is also no upper age limit and in older patients, more dramatic results can be seen. In cases with those over 60, where there are deep lines and furrows as well as facial sagging, Profhilo® can be used in conjunction with HA dermal fillers for dramatically restorative results.

Is Profhilo safe?
Profhilo® was launched in February 2015 in Italy and has since been used worldwide in over 150,000 with no adverse reactions reported. Profhilo® is made from an ultrapure, natural HA which is well-tolerated by the skin. The fact that it contains no chemical cross linking agents, reduces the risk of adverse reactions occurring.
For a natural hydrating solution to the first signs of ageing or indeed, more significant skin deterioration, Profhilo® could be just the treatment you need for revitalized skin with more youthful, vitality.
