Profhilo®: a natural anti-ageing treatment with hyaluronic acid
Are you suffering from sagging skin, or do you want to get rid of fine lines or deeper wrinkles? Choose the latest trend in skin rejuvenation: Profhilo®. This new wrinkle treatment based on hyaluronic acid tightens the skin and makes your skin look younger, smoother and more radiant. Fine lines and wrinkles are less noticeable, and the skin looks visibly younger. Profhilo® can be applied to the face, neck, décolletage and hands. Unlike ‘normal’ hyaluronic acid fillers, Profhilo® does not contain any chemical additives. The product is 100% natural.
Every Profhilo® treatment is preceded by a free, no-obligation consult. Even if you are still in doubt. Prior to the consult, you will receive a digital questionnaire, which you fill in at home and return to us. During the consult, the plastic surgeon will go through the questionnaire with you, you can ask questions, and you will receive honest advice. The possible risks of the treatment will also be discussed with you. Of course, you do not have to decide on the spot whether you want to undergo the Profhilo® treatment; Betan Clinics gives you plenty of time to think about it. If you decide to continue the treatment, we will draw up a personal treatment plan and a treatment agreement. After this, the plastic surgeon will take pictures of your face so that they can be compared with the result after the treatment.
Profhilo® helps firm the skin and nourishes the dermal cells. This anti-wrinkle treatment uses high-quality hyaluronic acid, which is non-permanent, biodegradable and reliable. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the body and allows the skin to retain moisture. As the years go by, the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin decreases. This makes the skin drier, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. By injecting the skin with Profhilo® in five places per half of the face, collagen production is stimulated. This results in firmer, smoother skin with significantly fewer wrinkles. Profhilo® improves the skin structure, makes the skin firmer, hydrates and has a lifting effect. The biggest difference with a filler treatment is that this form of skin improvement ensures that the aged skin is reshaped. Skin ageing is, as it were, stopped. Profhilo® is the best possible preventive treatment against wrinkles and other signs of skin ageing.
After the treatment
Immediately after the treatment, small lumps can be observed at the injection sites. These bumps almost always disappear within 24 hours. Bruising can also occur, although this is sporadic. Should this be the case, the bruises can easily be camouflaged with make-up. After a Profhilo® treatment, keep in mind that you do not exert yourself (sports, physical work) for up to 12 hours after the treatment. It is best to avoid alcohol and the sun for the first 24 hours. Wait 48 hours with a sauna visit, massage or a visit to the beautician.Immediately after the treatment, small lumps can be observed at the injection sites.

A Profhilo® treatment makes the skin visibly smoother and tighter. This applies to the face, but also the neck, décolletage and hands. The first results are visible after two to four weeks. To intensify the result, we recommend a second treatment, ideally after one month. In the weeks following these treatments, the hyaluronic acid continues to do its work: it hydrates and stimulates the skin from the inside out. This makes the skin even more even and radiant over time. The result of the Profhilo® treatment then lasts for six to twelve months, depending on your age and skin. After this period, you may be able to undergo another Profhilo® treatment. Your plastic surgeon can advise you on this.
Profhilo® is a very safe treatment in which complications rarely occur. Immediately after the treatment, you may suffer from swelling and bruising, but these disappear quickly; often within a few hours. Because Profhilo® uses the natural substance hyaluronic acid, allergic reactions rarely occur. The natural hyaluronic acid is broken down by the body and disappears from the body completely after a few months. Although Profhilo® is a new treatment technique in the field of skin improvement, the technique has been used more than 200,000 times worldwide. Complications rarely occurred. Do you doubt whether your skin is suitable for undergoing a Profhilo® treatment? Feel free to discuss this during the free consult. The plastic surgeon will take a detailed look at your skin and give you tailored advice.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What is Profhilo®?
Profhilo® is an anti-ageing treatment with a large amount of pure hyaluronic acid without chemical additives. The effect of Profhilo® is due to the fact that the production of collagen (firmness) and elastin (elasticity) is stimulated. The skin regains firmness and health in the various skin layers.
“An important advantage is that with Profhilo®, you can rejuvenate the skin without adding volume to your face. The skin is actually regenerated, skin sagging is tackled with a 100% natural treatment of hyaluronic acid”.
What indications can you treat with Profhilo®?
The treatment is suitable for the treatment of sagging skin on the face, neck, décolletage, hands and even upper arms. The result is very natural; the skin becomes firmer and gets a beautiful shine.
What is new about Profhilo®?
In 2016, the product won the Aesthetic Awards for the most innovative treatment because it is an entirely new treatment of hyaluronic acid with very specific benefits. The hyaluronic acid is very natural, so there is less chance of side effects, and you get a natural result.
How does the treatment go?
This treatment uses the BAP technique, i.e. injections into ten anatomically sophisticated areas for optimal results. Profhilo® spreads very well, so there are only a few injections to treat an entire face (or neck, cleavage or other indication) optimally. The treatment is fast, hardly painful and the chance of side effects is small due to the natural material.
For whom is this treatment suitable?
For anyone from the age of about 30 who wants to combat sagging skin. Also, for men and women who want a natural skin rejuvenating effect and do not (yet) want to use a “real” filler. The treatment can also be well combined with a filler or botox treatment or as an addition to another treatment.
When can I expect results?
There are 2 to 3 treatments with an interval of one month, depending on the degree of skin ageing. Because the skin itself is put to work by this treatment, you don’t see immediate results. Often you already see that the skin is better hydrated. From 6-8 weeks after the first treatment, the positive effect is more and more apparent; this is because the production of collagen and elastin takes time.
How long does the effect of the treatment last?
It depends on the condition of the skin how long these improvements remain visible. It is advised to undergo a loose treatment once or twice a year to maintain the result. After all: the ageing process continues.
Are there any side effects to be expected?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the skin. When injected, this substance is extremely well tolerated by the skin. The possible side effects of treatment with Profhilo® are mild swelling, redness and sometimes a few bruises. This is caused by the injections rather than by the product itself and will quickly disappear.
Profhilo® has been on the market since 2015 and has been widely used worldwide, with no side effects other than those mentioned above having been reported to date. This is due to the fact that it is a very pure form of hyaluronic acid.
