Profhilo overview


Revitalising your skin’s natural glow and firmness is now a reality with Profhilo treatments at Quaba Plastic Surgery in Edinburgh. Profhilo is an innovative, stabilised, injectable Hyaluronic Acid (HA) product specifically designed to counteract skin laxity. It offers one of the highest concentrations of HA available (64mg / 2ml). This isn’t just about hydrating the skin; it’s a transformative approach to remodelling ageing and sagging tissue, delivering remarkable results either as a standalone treatment or alongside other aesthetic interventions.

The Profhilo treatment involves precise injections into the skin, following a specific pattern to maximise effectiveness and comfort. This process, requiring no anaesthesia due to minimal discomfort, stimulates the production of four different types of collagen and elastin over about 28 days, leading to significant tissue improvement and a lifting/tightening effect not achievable with traditional skin boosters.

What is Profhilo, and how does it differ from other skin treatments available in Edinburgh?

Profhilo is a unique, injectable treatment designed to hydrate, remodel, and rejuvenate the skin from within. Unlike traditional fillers that add volume or alter facial contours, Profhilo improves skin texture, elasticity, and hydration through the bio-remodelling of collagen and elastin fibres. This treatment is especially suitable for those living in Edinburgh’s variable climate, providing resilience against environmental stressors.

Who is the ideal candidate for Profhilo treatments in Edinburgh?

The ideal candidates are individuals starting to notice the signs of ageing, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and decreased skin elasticity. Profhilo is particularly recommended for those aged 30 and above, as this is when significant loss of collagen and elastin begins. However, it’s also a proactive treatment for younger individuals seeking to maintain their skin’s youthful bounce.

How many sessions are required, and what should I expect during the treatment process?

Typically, a Profhilo treatment course involves two sessions spaced four weeks apart. Each session takes approximately 30 minutes and is minimally uncomfortable, thanks to the treatment’s noninvasive nature. Some patients, depending on their initial skin condition, may benefit from a third session for optimal results.

What areas can be treated with Profhilo?

Profhilo is versatile and can be effectively used on the face, neck, hands, and décolletage. These areas are often the first to show signs of ageing and can significantly benefit from the treatment’s hydration and tightening effects.

Is there any downtime after a Profhilo session, and what aftercare is recommended?

There is little to no downtime following Profhilo treatments, making it an excellent option for those with busy lifestyles. To maximise results, patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities and extensive exposure to UV light for a short period post-treatment. Mild tenderness or swelling at the injection sites may occur but typically resolves within 24-72 hours.

How long will the results from Profhilo last, and are there any long-term benefits?

The effects of Profhilo can last approximately six months, with results gradually appearing over 4-6 weeks post-treatment. Long-term benefits include improved skin quality, elasticity, and a natural, youthful appearance. For sustained results, maintenance sessions every six months are recommended.

Where can I get Profhilo treatments in Edinburgh, and how do I choose a provider?

Selecting a reputable clinic in Edinburgh for your Profhilo treatments is crucial. Look for a provider with experienced practitioners, positive reviews, and a portfolio of successful treatments. Ensuring your chosen clinic offers a thorough consultation before proceeding with any treatments is also essential.
