- Profhilo is a remodelling product that improves the tissue through hydration and the stimulation of collagen and elastin production

Profhilo is a treatment that applies the latest hyaluronic acid technology to stimulate and remodel the skin, improving facial structure and skin elasticity. Effectively treating loose, sagging skin, wrinkling and other signs of ageing, its deeply hydrating powers tighten and renew the skin.
Profhilo is often confused with dermal fillers, but they are very different. Fillers are used to create volume and to change the structure of your face, while Profhilo actually integrates with your skin to harness its own ability to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
“It’s not easy knowing who to trust with something as personal and visible as your face. At Waterhouse Young I feel completely confident that I will leave looking a better version of myself, having learnt something in the process that will help me to slow down the signs of ageing.”

What is Profhilo and how does it work?
Profhilo is an injectable treatment that combines two types of hyaluronic acid to rejuvenate your skin. It is both preventative and corrective in combating the signs of ageing.
There are no added chemicals in Profhilo, meaning that is is extremely safe and that there is nothing to react to. It is made of pure hyaluronic acid. Profhilo works by engaging the body’s receptors to induce the stimulation of collagen, the protein that strengthens our skin and gives it structure.
As a non-cross linked hyaluronic acid, Profhilo delivers hyaluronic acid with the absence of additives. Profhilo is injected uniformly into the superficial subcutaneous layer of skin and the product disperses within 24 hours, treating the whole area for lasting results.
What happens during the treatment?
During the treatment, we will determine precise injection points to allow for even distribution of the product.
When administering Profhilo there is no need for local anaesthetic. We simply administer the treatment according to the plan we’ve created for you.
Of course, before any treatment takes place, we meet with you in an initial consultation to discuss your desired look and how we can help you achieve it. With your needs in mind, we develop a bespoke treatment plan that will give you subtle, stunning results.
What can Profhilo be used to treat?
Profhilo is used in treating and preventing the signs of ageing, such as loose and sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles. It improves general skin quality and facial structure, as well – but Profhilo is not just a facial treatment. It can be used on many parts of the body, including the neck, décolleté and hands, to restore the skin’s elasticity and increase its firmness.
How long will the Profhilo treatment take?
As Profhilo requires no anaesthetic and just a few injection points, the treatment is over in a matter of minutes.
