The injectable that's all about stimulating your skin

Profhilo is not a dermal filler, nor is it a new type of anti-wrinkle injection in the traditional sense.

While it is made from stabilized Hyaluronic acid, it is new technology that is different to that which you might find in the Juvederm Vycross range of fillers. Profhilo is not about definition, or adding volume like a traditional dermal filler – it is about increasing the production of structural components of our skin which deplete with age; collagen and elastin.


The key here is the way it is formulated: it is highly concentrated and designed to stimulate collagen and elastin production within the skin over long periods of time. The HA in it also draws and retains water, hydrating your skin over very long periods of time. This is why it is often referred to as an “Injectable Moisturizer”.


profhilo filler


So while it may look like a filler, and while it might be a cosmetic injection, it does very different things to anti-wrinkle injections and fillers.

Profhilo is all about your skin quality, texture and elasticity.






How does Profhilo work?

As we age, our skin cells are not able to replace collagen and elastin as quickly as they once did. This results in a weakening of the structural integrity of the skin – it becomes less plump, less resilient, and less elastic.

Profhilo is a special formulation of highly concentrated hylauronic acid that counters each of these issues by remodeling the substructure of your skin, returning it to a more youthful condition:

Less plump – Profhilo is water-drawing and hydrating over long periods of time

Less resilient – Profhilo stimulates 4 type of collagen re-establishing structure

Less elastic – Elastin is produced at increased rates which gives your skin back its bounce.




Is Profhilo a dermal filler?

No, it is not. The target of Profhilo is the dermis only – and a very narrow part of it too.

It is not suitable for injection onto bone or into lips like dermal fillers might be.



What are the benefits of a Profhilo treatment?

  • Improved skin strength and resilience
  • Improved elasticity and bounce
  • Improved firmness and lift
  • Improved volume and hydration over long periods
  • Improved general appearance and glow



What can I expect during my treatment?


profhilo injections

You will first have a consultation and assessment.

Following this the injection points – there are 5 on each side of the face – will be marked out. Your injector will then place clinically defined volumes of product by injection into the skin.

These are not random points. They are clinically tested and known as Bio Aesthetic Points (BAPs) – they are points where Profhilo is know to work maximally at delivering results.

Profhilo is also indicated for the treatment of skin laxity across the body and hands.






Does it hurt? What side effects are there?

Profhilo treatment is not considered to be uncomfortable by the vast majority of patients. It is extremely well tolerated.

As with every cosmetic injectable, some injection site redness and slight swelling will occur – this usually resolves within a few minutes to hours.

Bruising is a possibility but aside from that, Profhilo is a low risk treatment.




Who is Profhilo suitable for?

Because it is all about improving the skin, everyone with lacklustre skin or skin laxity is a candidate. There are very few people over the age of 28-30 who wouldn’t see valuable benefits from a Profhilo treatment. It is popular among men and women of all ages.

Unfortunately, it is not suitable for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.




Frequently Asked Questions

Profhilo is a unique injectable treatment designed to address skin aging concerns, particularly skin laxity and hydration. It is composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps maintain moisture and elasticity in the skin. Profhilo is different from traditional dermal fillers as it spreads beneath the skin rather than adding volume or structure to specific areas. It stimulates collagen and elastin production, resulting in improved skin texture, firmness, and hydration.

Profhilo is typically injected into specific areas of the face, including the cheeks, temples, nasolabial folds (smile lines), chin, and jawline. It can also be used on the neck and hands to improve skin quality in those areas. The injections are strategically placed to ensure even distribution of the product and to target areas of concern for optimal results.

Profhilo is injected into the deeper layers of the skin, specifically the subcutaneous or superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) layers. These layers provide support and structure to the skin, and injecting Profhilo at this depth helps stimulate collagen and elastin production, resulting in a lifting and tightening effect.

The amount of Profhilo injected can vary depending on the individual’s specific needs and the areas being treated. Typically, a treatment course consists of two sessions, with a four-week interval between them. During each session, five injection points are commonly used on each side of the face. The total amount injected may vary, but it is usually around 2 milliliters for the entire treatment course.

Profhilo injections are not commonly performed in the forehead area. This treatment is primarily intended for areas with skin laxity and dehydration, and the forehead typically requires different treatment modalities for addressing concerns such as wrinkles or frown lines.

The cost of Profhilo injections can vary depending on several factors, including the geographic location, the expertise of the medical professional performing the treatment, the number of sessions required, and any additional treatments combined with Profhilo.

Profhilo injections are generally well-tolerated and relatively comfortable for most individuals. The needles used for the injections are typically very fine, minimizing discomfort during the procedure. Some individuals may experience mild stinging or a slight sensation during the injections, but any discomfort is usually temporary. Topical anesthetics or numbing creams may be applied prior to the treatment to further enhance comfort, if needed.

After Profhilo injections, it is advisable to avoid touching or applying makeup on the treated areas for at least six hours. It is also recommended to avoid strenuous physical activity, excessive sun exposure, saunas, or steam rooms for the first 24 to 48 hours. Mild redness, swelling, or bruising may occur at the injection sites but typically resolves within a few days. It is important to follow any specific aftercare instructions provided by the medical professional who performed the treatment.

The safety of Profhilo injections during pregnancy has not been established, and it is generally recommended to avoid elective cosmetic procedures during pregnancy.

Profhilo has been extensively studied and is considered a safe treatment when administered by a qualified and experienced healthcare professional. As with any medical procedure, there can be potential risks and side effects, although they are generally mild and temporary. Common side effects may include redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection sites, which typically resolve within a few days.

Dr Mylene is fantastic..she really listens to your concerns and makes sure you get the best results possible. I have had several treatments at Amara with Dr Paul and more recently with Dr Mylene and the treatments are of the highest quality and thr Dr's are so friendly and professional. I have tried other places for my treatments as I live a good distance away from the clinic , but I always return to Amara .

My mom and I went here recently for hydra facials and were so impressed! Everything was explained in detail with plenty of time allocated to the appointment, no rushing, absolutely no hard sell on products and kind service all the way around! My mom saw Gráinne and I saw Julia - both of them were amazing and got us set up with routines that are suitable and simple to follow. Skin is glowing! Robin at reception was so helpful and friendly and got us booked in again for follow ups - can’t wait!

I have had quite a few Hydrafacials at different clinics in Dublin, and back home in Copenhagen as well, but this clinic is so far the best.The therapist was lovely and she just really knew what she was doing. She made me feel very comfortable and relaxed while guiding me through the treatment.I also had a lot of questions regarding skin care and products because I have had some problems with acne and she took her time to answer all my questions without making me feel pressured to buy the products she was recommending me, which is important to me.I found my visit to the clinic to be excellent. The staff was welcoming and well-trained.Most importantly, my skin just felt and looked amazing afterwards.

I love this clinic!! I have been going here for over 5 years and although it is a huge trek for me I won’t ever go anywhere else for my skincare. The doctors and staff are so friendly and helpful and I cannot stress this point enough. I am not the kind of girl that gets regular facials or would follow a strict 6 step nightly skin regime. In fact, I would normally find this type of place daunting because I often feel judgement for not “being better” with this stuff. At Amara I have never felt like this. Everyone there always makes me feel so comfortable and genuinely wants to help me feel the best I can. I haven’t yet mentioned the results which are always incredible from the few things I’ve had done there . I am always so happily surprised by the results and the clinic is always so amazing with follow up appointments if necessary. I cannot vouch enough for this clinic!

From the moment you enter the clinic, you are greeted with lovely staff, the atmosphere is very calm and welcoming.A huge thank you to Siobhan for doing my hydrafacial, she made me feel very comfortable. Before the treatment she thoroughly explained the process and it's very evident that she is passionate in the work she does, she kept me informed of my facial every step of the way, and helped target my skin concerns along with great product recommendations. After my facial, I could instantly notice the difference on my skin.I will definitely reccomend amara clinic to my girlfriends and I look forward to coming back for more treatments.Thanks again!Ahlam
An unusual but very important review....Amara was very highly recommended to me by a colleague. I purchased a €2,000 voucher from Amara for my wife as a 50th birthday present. Needless to say, she was ecstatic. Due to Covid 19 financial difficulties, we reluctantly decided not to utilise the voucher and to request a refund....6 months later. These are terribly difficult times for businesses, so I felt more than a little embarassed and not very hopeful. I am 50 years old and have been around the block a few times, I have never encountered such professionalism and simple humanity. Never a question, I was fully refunded to my huge relief and complete satisfaction. This company clearly has a wonderful and primary customer care ethos. Their top, middle and bottom line is customer care - pure class. Sincerely, thank you Ronan and your team. We most certainly will be back.

My first visit to Amara (it won't be the last!) was excellent. Paul has such an easy manner, I felt very comfortable and at ease immediately. Everything was explained in detail so I knew exactly what was being done and why. There was no pushy sales technique - if anything it is evident that they will only do work that will benefit you - you won't pay for unnecessary treatments and any treatments you do have will be done with an emphasis on looking natural rather than 'done'. Very happy.

I can recommend Amara.Carolina makes you feel very welcome as soon as you arrive at this clinic.I had an Hydrafacial with Joanie that I will definitely indulge in again and also availed of her advice on their range of skin care products.I felt reassured by Dr Pauls pleasant unrushed manner and in particular with his conservative approach and natural results.He takes the time to explain what he is doing and why he thinks you need it which I like.I will definitely return.

I have been to Amara clinic a few times and the experience is always great. Today I had a Hydrafacial with Siobhan and I couldn't recommend it more. She took the time to review my skin routine, habits and explained to me the science behind our skin. The facial itself was great and my skin is feeling amazing. I will definitely be back!

Friendly, helpful staff that seem genuine.I didn't feel 'pushed' into buying products / services (which is what usually happens!)I am THAT person that asks LOTS of questions - *pedantic *, I see detail in everything and easily pick flaws, but was grateful for the professionalism here. Appreciated they listened and answered my dozen questions... Usually dont take the time to write reviews but the clinic followed up with a text and I figure they deserve it! Thanks Guys - I will be back :-)
I'm more than thrilled about my decsion to go to Amara for lip fillers. I've been researching for a few years but was always to nervous to follow through with the procedure. Dr. Paul is very thorough and honest. He explained everything he would do to achieve the desired result. I asked him for subtlety and thats exactly what I received. I couldn't be happier with my filler treatment and my lips look 100% natural, which was exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much Dr. Paul!
I had my first hyrdafacial treatment here, and loved it so much I’ve already booked another! The treatment itself is amazing, my skin was left feeling wonderful, and the benefits were noticeable straight away, and I my skin was noticeably soft and smooth for several weeks after the treatment. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. My therapist Joanie was lovely, and incredibly knowledgeable of the whole process, and really thorough when reviewing my skin needs. I would highly recommend the whole experience with Amara :)
