A "beneath the skin" hyaluronic acid treatment targeting multiple layers of the skin to restore firmness, tone and elasticity.

About The Treatment

As we age, we lose hydration in the skin along with facial fat reduction. We lose important collagen and elastin in the skin which affects the natural elasticity and overall plumpness. Where botox and fillers are aimed at changing the way your face moves or its shape, think of Profhilo as the ultimate step in your skincare routine - natural results are guaranteed.

Profhilo is an ultra-pure hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable. It stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity, improve and restore firmness, hydrate the skin, and remodel ageing and sagging tissue. Typically used for the face and neck, it can also be used for the décolletage, hands, arms, knees and abdomen area to effectively treat skin laxity. Achieves long lasting results 6+ months.

Rather than just plumping and filling wrinkles, Profhilo stimulates the production of collagen and elastin through the slow release of HA. In turn, skin tone, texture and hydration, plus the appearance of fine lines is improved.

Before any treatment can be suggested, you will require a consultation to ascertain your concerns, medical history and suitability.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does the treatment involve?
Profhilo is injected into the skin using very fine needles in pre-determined points.

Does it hurt?
It is relatively painless; you may feel a short sting or scratch, but not for long. Patients can opt for topical pain relief or anaesthetic before treatment if necessary.

Are there any side effects?
Some people experience some redness or mild swelling which usually subsides in a few hours. Tenderness and possible itching at the injection sites will subside quickly.

Is the treatment safe?

Profhilo is completely safe. It is formulated with 100% hyaluronic acid - HA is a substance that occurs naturally in the skin cells, over time it is broken down by normal biological processes and removed from the body. At VB Aesthetics, our nurse practitioners Vicki, Suzanne and Lucy are fully trained and qualified.

How long will it take to work?
Many patients start to see an improvement in their skin within a week of their treatment. The real results won’t start to show until the 6-8 week mark - this is the time that it takes for the body to start regenerating collagen and elastin.

Will I have to change my plans for the day?
We recommend you avoid alcohol, heat, and taking any strenuous exercise for a day after treatment, as well as having any other facial treatments. You will need to avoid excessive sunlight for 48 hours after and wear a high SPF sunscreen.

How often will I need treatments?
Results can last anything from 6 to 18 months, depending on your individual reaction and metabolism of the product. Our nurse injectors recommend a single maintenance treatment, every 3 months.

How much does it cost?
The cost of two sessions of Profhilo is £500. 
Maintenance sessions after three months are £250.
