Profhilo in Edinburgh

What is Profhilo And What Does it Do?

Think of Profhilo as a deeply hydrating moisturiser, but instead of simply applying it to the surface of your skin, it’s injected into your skin to help revitalise it.

Profhilo works by drawing moisture into the deeper layers of your skin while also encouraging the production of four different types of collagen and elastin. When these work together, they can help tighten and lift the skin, giving it a radiant glow.

Because Profhilo contains hyaluronic acid (HA), which attracts water, it acts more like a hydrating booster rather than a filler. This quality makes it perfect for people with tired or dull skin, as it can transform it into firmer and more radiant-looking skin.

Areas Treated

At Pretty & Perfect, we use Profhilo to rejuvenate your skin on the face and neck area.

Tightening and Lifting

Profhilo delivers a significant tightening effect on tissues, especially in areas prone to sagging.

Improved Texture and Tone

The slow release of hyaluronic acid enhances collagen and elastin production, resulting in improved skin texture and tone.

Hydration Boost

Profhilo provides intense hydration, contributing to a radiant complexion.

Increased Firmness and Elasticity

You can return to your daily activities without taking day off for recovery.


Profhilo yields immediate results, but the best outcomes typically appear 4-6 weeks after treatment. This is due to Profhilo’s design, which stimulates your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin—an effect that requires time. However, these effects are not permanent, lasting up to 6-9 months. The treatment initially provides a glow, reduces fine lines, and promotes smoother skin.

Number of Sessions and Interval

A complete Profhilo course involves two-three injectable treatments spaced 4 weeks apart. This regimen ensures optimal and long-lasting results, with follow-up sessions recommended every 4-6 months to maintain the benefits.

During the Treatment​

Profhilo treatment is straightforward and minimally invasive. It includes injection into specific areas, typically requiring only 10 injection points. The procedure takes about 30 minutes.

Potential Side Effects & Downtime

While side effects are minimal, some individuals may experience temporary symptoms like redness, swelling, minor bruising, or tenderness. These typically resolve within 24 to 48 hours post-treatment. 

There is typically no downtime associated with this treatment, allowing you to return to your normal activities right away. However, it’s important to adhere to the aftercare instructions.
