Profhilo is a treatment that has quickly soared in popularity because the world of aesthetics is constantly evolving. However, with that being said there are some similarities between the two treatments, but they do achieve different results.


What is Profhilo?

Profhilo is an injectable treatment that is made of 100% hyaluronic acid, the same acid that is found in your skin and connective tissues. When it is injected beneath the skin, it forms a hydrating layer to increase moisture levels, collagen production and can even improve your skin laxity. It can be used on the face, neck, decollate, arms, hands and knees, or any part of your body where the skin shows visible signs of ageing.


What are dermal fillers made of?

Dermal fillers are an injectable gel-like substance that contains hyaluronic acid, for example, a naturally occurring sugar in the skin which the filler itself uses. This acid is essential to your skin bounce and firmness, which is why dermal fillers are so effective in volume. Because this sugar occurs naturally within the body, your skin will accept the dermal filler with ease and is very safe to use for enhancing soft tissues in the face because they are compatible with your skin, delivering effective results safely.


Which treatment should I choose?

If you’re seeking more of an improved facial feature rather than skin quality, i.e. a more prominent cheek over improving the laxity of your cheek’s skin, then dermal fillers would be more suitable for this. Of course, we can help assist you with your decision at your initial consultation by assessing your areas of concern and providing our expert opinion on what would achieve your desired results best.


Profhilo v moisturisers

Profhilo has been coined the injectable moisturiser recently by default, but does this mean it’s better than topical moisturiser creams? Technically, yes as moisturisers and products that claim to contain hyaluronic acid and collagen might provide some form of feel-good factor to your skin, but they often can’t penetrate to where they will make their difference. Collagen, for example, is important for skin’s bounce and volume, but it’s the molecules are far too big to be absorbed by the top layer of the skin. Hyaluronic acid’s molecular weight is often neglected by skincare companies, meaning it cannot reach the relevant depths to enact true change.
