Profhilo is the latest in non-surgical facial treatments that addresses skin laxity and quality while also adding subtle volume. Made of pure hyaluronic acid, Profhilo nourishes the skin and restores firmness to soften lines and wrinkles and add a youthful vibrancy. This treatment is ideal for those of us seeking skin hydration and improvement for natural-looking, soft, and supple skin.
Dr Bawa uses this skin laxity treatment with specialised technologies designed entirely for remodelling tired, ageing, or lined skin. As well as its concentrated form of hyaluronic acid, which itself is a naturally occurring skin compound essential to skin laxity, Profhilo also stimulates the natural production of collagen and elastin to renew your skin from within.
Benefits of Profhilo
Treatment with Profhilo by Dr Bawa is the perfect solution for those not just looking to add subtle volume and smooth fine lines, but to also visibly improve the skin’s quality. Dermal fillers are effective for restoring and enhancing volume in the skin, but Profhilo is ideal for those seeking to improve their skin’s laxity and hydration, treating rather than ‘filling’ fine lines.

Your consultation: The most important part of your patient journey is the initial consultation, as it allows us to really understand what your concerns are. Using this insight, we strive to address these target areas and exceed your expectations by helping you to feel great about your skin with Profhilo.
What is included in the initial consultation?
- A comprehensive assessment of your requirements and concerns.
- Thorough medical assessment.
- Clinical photos to assess before and after treatment (always confidential).
- Bespoke treatment plan including detailed explanation on how we will achieve your goal.
- Dedicated time in which we will answer any questions you may have honestly and clearly.
Pre-Treatment: We advise you to refrain from alcohol for 24 hours prior to treatment, as alcohol consumption can increase the risk of mild bleeding or bruising.
Appointment: We’ll welcome you to the clinic and your consent will be taken for the treatment. Any questions are welcome throughout and we’ll keep checking that you’re comfortable during your treatment with Profhilo. When the treatment is complete, we’ll arrange a follow-up appointment in 4 weeks for your second treatment and final follow up 4 weeks following your second treatment, of which is extremely important to ensure that you are happy with the results.
Time taken: Our treatment with Profhilo takes between 20 – 30 minutes.
Downtime: You may experience some mild swelling and tenderness for up to 48 hours after treatment, though this is completely natural. Most patients return to work and resume daily activities immediately after treatment.
After-care: Dr Bawa recommends avoiding extreme heat, saunas and steam-rooms, and swimming on the same day as treatment. We’d also advise to avoid the gym for 24 hours after your Profhilo treatment and avoid touching or agitating the treatment site too much. Patients who suffer from cold sores may wish to start anti-viral medication before treatment and for a few days following the face filler treatment, and this is something that Dr Bawa can prescribe for you.
How long will it take to work: After just one treatment with Profhilo you will notice some changes in your skin quality, though a course of two treatments is recommended to achieve optimum hydration and improvement. After this, Dr Bawa recommends a top-up appointment after 6 – 12 months to maintain these natural-looking results.
How long will my results last: Typically, you can expect your results to last for up to 6 – 12 months. This varies between individuals.
*Individual results may vary.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
Profhilo is a unique injectable treatment that works to remodel your skin from within, achieving visible results within just 2 treatments. It is made of 100% hyaluronic acid that, when injected into the skin, distributes itself to nourish skin cells and strengthen tissue structure, therefore restoring laxity and firmness to the skin. It also stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, proteins essential to skin quality, that refresh the skin over time for a softly youthful appearance.
Is it painful?
The sensation is likened to a mild discomfort rather than pain. A topical numbing cream is available before treatment begins, too, so you can feel at ease in Dr Bawa’s care.
Are there any side effects?
Common and completely natural side effects include mild swelling and tenderness in the treated areas, though these should subside within 48 hours. Bruising may also occur at the injection sites, and this is natural but a little less common. To avoid the risk of bruising, Dr Bawa would advise avoiding drinking alcohol 24 hours before treatment.
How is Profhilo different to dermal fillers?
Profhilo is specifically formulated to treat large areas of tired or dull skin, achieving an overall improvement in skin quality, laxity, hydration and subtle volume. Dermal fillers are used to enhance and add concentrated volume to specific target areas, working beneath the skin rather than with the skin. Instead, Profhilo is primarily a hydrating treatment that is dispersed evenly throughout the face, meaning overall firming and tightening can be achieved.
What results can I expect to see?
Increasing firmness, elasticity, and overall improved quality and tone can typically be visible for up to 6 – 12 months post-treatment. However, this does depend on your individual needs, age, and lifestyle. Results tend to vary between individual patients, so we can discuss your treatment plan at your consultation.
