Profhilo: The newest anti-aging treatment for plump, youthful skin
How does Profhilo work?
Profhilo is the newest innovation in injectable treatments to enter the Indian market. It’s ventured into the Asian market with the support of IBSA and Alma.
While you may have heard of Alma in reference to their state-of-the-art laser machines, IBSA is one of the leading pharmaceutical companies in hyaluronic acid production, which we know, is one of the best injectable ingredients.
IBSA is also one of the few companies who creates their dermatological products from start to finish. They’re part of the product’s entire life cycle, from raw materials to the end product that makes it to their pre-filled syringes.
Profhilo is a way to make your skin a youthful, truly lit and plump look from within.
Must Read: Pure injectable Hyaluronic Acid
Profhilo is unlike other injectable treatments, differing from a dermal filler. Hyaluronic acid can be used in serums, in fillers, in supplements and now also in biostimulators when used in the right proportion.
This is a bio remodeller which makes use of stabilised hyaluronic acid to actually remodel multiple layers of your skin.
This works directly on the source of the skin (deeper layers) that’s causing aging as opposed to superficially attempting to reverse signs of aging.
According to the company’s claims, it stimulates the fibroblast cells, thereby increasing collagen and elastin production, activates the keratinocytes to increase the synthesis of collagen and elastin and preserves and encourages the viability of adipocytes that affect the quality of adipose tissue.
While a filler is designed to fill your skin as the name suggests, Profhilo is designed to stimulate and hydrate your skin from the deeper layers.
Benefits of Profhilo
The reason we at Isya choose Profhilo is because we’re looking to reverse time when your skin is in question.
We want to make your skin younger, want lots of collagen and elastin, want the adipocytes to behave like younger skin, not depleted like older skin, we want deep hydration and suppleness and we want to avoid unnecessary treatments in the future through a preventive measure.
These are all the ways Profhilo can benefit your skin. Profhilo enables your skin to work harder and faster, like it did when it was younger, as opposed to making a superficial difference.
It’s truly a hardworking injectable that works on the principle of youngering your skin with every session, giving it the capability to reverse signs of aging and make you appear younger.

Key treatment areas
Since Profhilo is the anti-wrinkle superhero, it’s best used in areas where you wrinkle the most. It can be used to treat signs of aging around your forehead, cheeks, around your lips and your chin.
It is also safe to be used on your neck, décolletage and hands and can help treat sagging and fragile skin there.
The Profhilo treatment makes use of a blend of two different types of hyaluronic acid (low and high molecular weight) that work to remodel your skin’s layers, from the inside, and stays in place longer than other injectables.
It involves mapping and then injecting the areas of your face (and possibly, neck) that requires the treatment.
For Profhilo, your skin is first numbed for 20-30 minutes to minimise any possible discomfort since this is an injectable treatment. We then go on to mark the areas that we are going to inject and treat.
Since Dr. Kiran has years of experience with Profhilo (from before it made its way to India), she optimises the treatment for your needs by custom marking exactly the areas that truly need to be worked on.
Then, injecting the biomodulator takes 10 minutes at the max and you’re done!
Here’s what the Profhilo has to say:
The injection process for Profhilo has been carefully designed and clinically tested for maximum efficiency and client comfort. Each pre-filled syringe is carefully injected deeply into the dermis.
Following the Bolus technique, the physician slowly and smoothly releases the Profhilo serum with very little tissue distension or irritation.
You can also learn more about the process at this link.
Downtime usually consists of a little swelling for a few days, going up to a week at the maximum. However, this swelling is on your entire face so it’s not very noticeable.
You may also experience a little bit of bruising which can be easily covered with a concealer—we’ll even teach you how to do it, if you’ll like.
The treatment can cause some bruising—you can use some arnica to treat it. Use an antiseptic cream or Vaseline jelly on the area if needed and you can continue with your regular routine right after the treatment.
Call it a lunchtime procedure, if you may. We do recommend avoiding any workouts for 24-48 hours and definitely avoiding any further skin treatments for a few days.
Stay out of the sun as much as you can and skip the steam or sauna as well to let your skin recover completely without any irritants.
The side-effects of Profhilo are just like those of dermal fillers which only include temporary bruising and swelling that subside within a week. There are no long-term side effects you need to worry about.
If your skin is lacking lustre, hydration, tautness and just feeling limp, aged and lifeless on the whole, Profhilo is the perfect treatment for you.
While we often see an immediate lift and glow, over the next few weeks after your procedure. It increases, skin suppleness and tautness increases as does elasticity along with an added glow.
Younger clients end up with a sort of ‘je ne sais quoi’ looking better but just can’t put a finger on why they are looking more perky. Older clients feel and often see more of a visible lift, although some have deeper dehydration and collagen loss so may need more sessions to treat those concerns.
Consult with us to further understand what your best options are and if Profhilo will be able to address all your pressing skin concerns.
Profhilo is one of the best anti-wrinkle treatments on the market and is a brilliant anti-aging solution due to its collagen and elastin stimulating properties. If you’re looking for a solution for acne or hyperpigmentation, we advise you to try another in-clinic procedure to treat those concerns.
However, if signs of aging are your primary concern, pick Profhilo.
When administering Profhilo, you require a reduced number of treatment sessions, need to do it on lesser injection sites which also means lesser discomfort and essentially almost no downtime.
While dermal fillers structure the face, plump lips, lift skin and visibly improve the appearance of signs of aging.
Profhilo works on healing and remodelling the skin from within, genuinely making it younger and healthier as opposed to superficially filling it in.
The results you see with Profhilo is natural as opposed to dermal fillers. This is because the hyaluronic acid composition in Profhilo works on the deeper layers of your skin to make it younger whereas fillers are only able to work on the appearance which wears off eventually.
Profhilo makes your skin healthier and assists it in regenerating better, like it did in your youth.
Regular dermal fillers are a great option for those looking to treat their skin at a younger stage and provide it with additional hydration.
However, if you want to treat prevalent signs of aging and truly make your skin younger, if we may say so, Profhilo is the way to go.
The injectable is made with 100% hyaluronic acid which is bio compatible and no chemicals at all, bringing the risk factor associated with it down to nil.
Fillers can be used for younger and older clients to solve a problem. If they want higher or more defined cheeks, a stronger jawline, a visible lift, a shaped chin, lighter under eye circles, remodelled nose, facial shaping or optimisation or lines filled.
On the other hand, Profilho is for biostimulation to actually reverse time and make your skin younger and deeply hydrated and more supple. It doesn’t fill you or solve a specific problem. It reduces the risk of seeing the signs of aging early.
The cost of the treatment depends on the size of the area of your face that requires the injectable and the number of sessions. Typically, we suggest signing up for two sessions keeping a gap of a month (or more based on how it works for your skin) for best results. If your skin needs it, we can also do an added third session.
The number of treatments you require depends on how your skin adjusts to the injectable. While we recommend two sessions at the minimum, we can also incorporate a third session into your treatment if you’d like to further improve the appearance of your skin.
The effects of your Profhilo treatment (after you’ve got a minimum of two sessions) will last for 6 months to a year depending on how many sessions you’ve had.
This is subjective to your age and your skin’s natural health. You can also sign up for the treatment once again after the six month mark after a consultation to give your skin another dose of hydration.
There are no side effects of the Profhilo treatment that you need to be wary of. You may observe temporary swelling for a few days and possible minor bruising, but these go away by themselves—there are no long term negative effects to worry about.
With the Profhilo treatment, expect your skin to appear at least 5 years younger. It will be plumper, hydrated, smoother, show lesser signs of ageing and appear a lot more youthful on the whole.
