Profhilo – Dr Audrey & Dr R Clinic


What is


The first of its kind, Profhilo is a revolutionary ‘beneath the skin’ hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment, made with the patented NAHYCO® technology. This results in a unique hyaluronic acid injectable gel, which has a prolonged stimulating activity on the dermal cells. When injected into skin, Profhilo stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity and improve and restore firmness of the skin.

One of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market, Profhilo not only boosts and hydrates the skin, but also remodels ageing and sagging tissue. The most common areas of treatment include the face and neck and can also be used for the décolletage, hands, arms, knees and abdomen area where it would effectively treat skin laxity. The treatment is suitable for men and women as well as offering skin benefits for patients of all ages.

How Does Profhilo® Work

Ultra-pure hyaluronic acid is precisely injected into the area being treated. Unlike wrinkle reducing and dermal filler treatments, Profhilo stimulates collagen and elastin, attracting water in the deeper layers of the skin.

As a stabilised product, the activity on dermal cells will last longer than that of a non-stabilised gel. During this time the stimulation of four different types of collagen and elastin takes place by slow release of hyaluronic acid.

The stimulation results in significant tissue improvement. Therefore we cannot say that Profhilo is a skin booster as it also has a significant tightening / lifting effect on the tissue.

Treatment Area

Who is Suitable for Profhilo Treatments

Profhilo® is suitable for both men and women with mild to moderate signs of ageing skin. It is highly recommended for patients aged 30-50 years who are looking for an effective method to hydrate their skin and improve skin laxity, elasticity and fine lines. Generally, those above 25 years old can also benefit from this treatment.

For safety reasons, Profhilo® is not recommended for patients who have/are:

  • Immunocompromised
  • Allergic to product ingredients
  • Allergic to Gram +ve bacterial proteins or lidocaine
  • Have any infected skin area, such as acne or cold sores
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding women

Our Procedure

Before treatment
An initial consultation will be done for all new patients to clinically assess your medical history. We will also give a full explanation of the procedure, clinical and aesthetic benefits, risks, aftercare and consent process for you to make an informed decision. 
The actual treatment itself will take approximately 30 minutes depending on the number of areas treated and whether a local anaesthetic is required. However, as Profhilo® is subjectively a low pain procedure, numbing is not necessary for most clients.
During treatment
After cleaning and preparing your skin, you will receive a total of 10 subcutaneous injections of Profhilo® using the Bio Aesthetic Points (BAP) injection technique. The five key points on the face includes the area next to the ears, the nasolabial fold (laughter lines near the mouth), chin, under the eyes and top of the cheeks.
After injection, it disperses quickly beneath the skin to improve hydration without any need for a massage or risk of leaving lumps or nodules. However, if they are visible it typically dissipates within 24 hours as the product seeps into your skin.
After treatment
The results of the Profhilo® treatment will not be properly seen until four weeks after the second treatment. A follow up appointment will ensure that there are no complications.

What to Expect From The Treatment

Profhilo® usually works to smooth and hydrate the skin from the very first treatment but results are more prominent after the second treatment as Profhilo® takes time to work. By having 2-3 treatment sessions, it allows the Profhilo® to remain in the skin for a longer time, resulting in a longer-lasting response. 
It takes time to stimulate new collagen and elastin production to naturally improve the plumpness, firmness and elasticity of the skin. The results will usually last up to six months post treatment and a repeat cycle is recommended once the initial cycle is over. 

Risks and Side Effects

With all non-surgical aesthetic treatments, there is a risk of side-effects, such as minor bruising or swelling at the injection sites. However, these usually do not occur and subside quickly when they do (within 24 hours).

Before & After


Typically around 45 minutes including the application of numbing cream and for its effect to set in

One of the advantages of the Profhilo treatment is the minimal downtime. Patients can usually return to their regular activities immediately after the procedure. However, slight redness, swelling, bruising or itching at the injection site is normal and typically resolves within a few days. Applying a cool pack to the affected area can help alleviate these symptoms

2 sessions a month apart and the 3rd session 6 months later recommended for results lasting up to 1 year
