Profhilo is a skin remodelling treatment. A non-surgical skin treatment to treat facial lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, improving tone, texture and hydration. The treatment is aimed at those with visible signs of ageing skin.

Profhilo® uses advanced patented technologies to help remodel the skin. It is an injectable treatment made of high concentration Hyaluronic Acid (HA).

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring, gel-like substance in our skin which acts like a sponge. It holds in moisture and makes our skin appear plump, smooth and hydrated. Its production slows down as we age, along with collagen and elastin which are the building blocks giving us  plumped up healthy skin.

Profhilo can provide the following benefits:

Profhilo helps to tighten and firm the skin, creating a more hydrated and radiant skin tone after 2 treatments, each 4 weeks apart. Maintenance sessions may be recommended, consisting of one treatment every 3 months. Otherwise, treatment is repeated again after 6-12 months.

Profhilo consists of hyaluronic acid, which is well tolerated by the skin. Bruising and slight swelling at the injection site are the most common reported side effects. These usually subside within 24 hours.

  • Avoid touching or rubbing the area.
  • Avoid wearing makeup for the first 24 hours.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours.
  • Avoid the sun, saunas, tanning beds, and hot tubs for 48 hours afterwards.
Yes, Profhilo can be used anywhere there is crepey skin on the body, typically the neck, décolletage, upper arms, abdomen, and above the knees. It helps to remodel the skin and improve skin laxity.

Although Profhilo contains hyaluronic acid, it does not behave like a filler in that it treats the skin tone by dispensing and flowing through the skin layers to stimulate collagen and elastin. Fillers use hyaluronic acid to revolumize and add dimension to areas of the face where this has been lost. Profhilo does not add volume or change the structure of the face. It is more of a skin hydration treatment.

No, it’s not recommended for the eye area due to its high concentration of hyaluronic acid as it may cause puffiness. There are other treatments available for the eye area.

A course of 2, or sometimes 3 treatments is required, each a month apart. At each treatment, 2ml of Profhilo is injected using a technique called BAP (BIO AESTHETIC POINTS). The BAP technique consists of 5 injection points on each side of the face. Taking as little as 15 minutes to complete, this hyaluronic acid treatment works by stimulating 4 different types of collagen and elastin due to the slow release of hyaluronic acid, and it is this stimulation that results in significant improvement of tissue quality.

  • Overall facial rejuvenation
  • Facial sagging
  • Sagging neck skin
  • Crepey texture on neck
  • Hand rejuvenation
Immediately after treatment, there may be some redness at the injection site, and you may experience some itching, tenderness, and swelling in the treated area. This will generally disappear within 24 hours.
For the best results, three treatments of 2ml are recommended at weeks 4, 8, and 12. Maintenance treatments can be scheduled according to your body’s response to treatment, usually at 6 months or one treatment every 3 months.

We start losing a significant amount of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid after we reach 30, and it is at this age that we start to consider preventative treatments.

This is the time when many people consider their first anti-wrinkle injections as the first lines start to appear. If you feel your facial tissue quality has dropped significantly, and that you may look older for your age but are not ready for dermal fillers yet, Profhilo® may be the best treatment for you.

There is no age limit. In fact, in older patients, we have often seen more dramatic results.

I had a few skin treatments with Dr.Mary including PRP, micro needling and lip flip. While she wasn't pushy and I wasn't under any pressure to have any procedures done, each treatment was explained to me step by step.Dr. Mary was extremely thorough, professional and knowledgeable, which made me comfortable duringtreatments. I look forward to trying out more in the near future!R.

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Dr. Mary Ward for a skin care consultation, and I am truly in awe of her expertise and approach. Not only is she brilliant at what she does, but her ability to make her clients feel at ease is commendable. From the moment I walked in, I felt welcomed and truly heard. Dr. Ward has a natural way with people that puts you immediately at comfort, making the consultation process smooth and informative. I left her clinic not only with a clear plan for my skin but also with the assurance that I was in capable hands. Highly recommend to anyone in need of expert skin care advice and a comforting experience.
