If you're looking to prolong youthfulness and maintain skin health, both Profhilo and dermal fillers are great solutions. However, it is a common misconception that Profhilo is the same as a dermal filler. There are many similarities between them, but Profhilo is a marvel anti-aging treatment which is one of the most popular treatments to help hydrate and illuminate your skin.


What is Profhilo?

Profhilo is an injectable hyaluronic acid that (when injected into the skin) retains moisture through the body, resulting in increased collagen stimulation. Meaning that Profhilo works wonders for rejuvenating lackluster skin! Profhilo is injected through microinjection points across the face and or neck. This improves skin quality and increases elasticity production, increasing plumpness which may have been lost through natural aging.

Profhilo contains a high level of clinically concentrated hyaluronic acid, which is the highest on the current market. When injected the Hyaluronic acid thermally bonds, meaning it retains moisture instead of chemically bonding. Therefore, Profhilo acts as a hydrator instead of a filler, which has incredible anti-aging effects on our skin!

The importance of Hyaluronic acid when aiming to achieve the sought-after hydrated, plump, and glowing skin is unbeaten! One gram of Hyaluronic acid can hold up to 6 liters of water, Profhilo gives your skin the exact hydration hit for radiant skin! Profhilo overtime can stimulate collagen and elastin – these are the two key players for pump, bouncy skin.

Below are the perfect examples of how Profhilo can rejuvenate, brighten, and radiate your appearance.

What is a filler?

In a nutshell, dermal filler is also a hyaluronic acid (HA), resembling a gel-like consistency. When injected into areas of the face filler can modify features such as the chin, lips, and nose. Filler is also used to contour areas of the face. Dermal fillers can also be used to minimize wrinkles. Not all dermal fillers are made of Hyaluronic acid. However, due to its hydrating properties and water retention, it is the more favored choice.


Main Differences Profhilo Vs Filler


Profhilo is runnier in texture and is a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid. Filler is a thicker more viscous hyaluronic acid


Profhilo spreads evenly under the skin and immediately refreshes and plumps the skin from within, this stimulates elastin and collagen production. Profhilo can be administered in the face, neck, décolleté, hands, and knees.

Filler stays where it is placed and its use is for volumizing, shaping, lifting, and filling a specific area. Filler can be placed in the lips, nose, cheeks, jaw, chin, temples, tear troughs, and deep-set lines.

Treatment Occurrence

Profhilo is a course of two treatments with each appointment one month apart, which can then be topped up if desired after completing the initial two treatments.

Filler is dependent on desired result and area treated; this would need to be advised within a doctor consultation. However, recommended treatment is one every 16-18 months.
