At Canova Medical, we often get asked questions about combining treatments like Profhilo and Botox. Both are popular and effective treatments in their own right, but can they be used together? And what should you know before getting either of these treatments? Here, we’ll explore the most common questions surrounding these treatments and give you the information you need to make an informed decision.


What is Profhilo?

Profhilo is a revolutionary treatment that has taken the aesthetic industry by storm. It’s a type of injectable treatment that can help to combat the signs of ageing by hydrating the skin from the inside out. The treatment involves injecting a hyaluronic acid solution into the skin, which helps to stimulate collagen and elastin production. This can help to improve the texture, tone, and overall appearance of the skin.

What is Botox?

Botox, on the other hand, is a neuromodulator that is used to treat dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by the repeated movement of facial muscles, such as the ones around the eyes and mouth. Botox works by temporarily relaxing these muscles, which can help to smooth out the wrinkles and lines that they create.

Can you have Profhilo and Botox together?

Yes, you can have Profhilo and Botox together. In fact, many people choose to combine these two treatments to achieve a more complete rejuvenation of their skin. Profhilo can help to improve the texture and overall appearance of the skin, while Botox can help to smooth out any dynamic wrinkles. You can read more about in this other article (Botox vs Profhilo).

How soon can I have Botox after Profhilo?

It’s recommended that you wait at least 48 hours before having Botox after getting Profhilo injections. This will allow the skin to settle and reduce the risk of any adverse reactions.

Do I need Profhilo and Botox?

Whether or not you need both Profhilo and Botox will depend on your individual needs and concerns. If you’re looking to combat signs of ageing such as loss of volume, dehydration, and dullness, then Profhilo may be a good choice for you. If, on the other hand, you’re more concerned about dynamic wrinkles, then Botox may be a better option. It’s best to speak with a qualified practitioner, such as the ones at Canova Medical, to determine the best treatment plan for you.

Is Profhilo a filler or skin booster?

Profhilo is a type of skin booster treatment. Unlike dermal fillers, which add volume to the face, skin boosters are designed to improve the overall quality and hydration of the skin.

Can you have skin boosters and Botox at the same time?

Yes, you can have skin boosters and Botox at the same time. Skin boosters, like Profhilo, work to hydrate and nourish the skin, while Botox can help to smooth out any wrinkles or lines. Combining these two treatments can help to achieve a more complete rejuvenation of the skin.

Can you mix Botox with PRP?

PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is another popular treatment in the aesthetic industry. It involves injecting a solution made from the patient’s own blood into the skin, which can help to stimulate collagen production and improve the texture and overall appearance of the skin. While Botox and PRP can be used together, it’s important to speak with a qualified practitioner to determine the best treatment plan for you.

Is one session of Profhilo enough? Shall I do 2 or 3 sessions?

The number of Profhilo sessions that you need will depend on your individual needs and concerns. Some patients may see results after just one session, while others may require two or three sessions to achieve the desired results. Dr Apostoloso Vlachogiorgos, the practitioners at Canova Medical in Wilmslow, can work with you to determine the best treatment plan for you.

Can Profhilo Be Injected into the Forehead?

Profhilo is not usually injected into the forehead because the skin in this area is thin, and there’s a risk of the product spreading into unwanted areas. Botox is usually the treatment of choice for forehead wrinkles.

What Can Go Wrong with Profhilo?

As with any injectable treatment, there’s a risk of complications with Profhilo. These can include bruising, swelling, redness, or infection. However, these are rare and usually mild, and most patients can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment. You can read more about its side effects here.

Can you have skin boosters and Botox at the same time?

Yes, you can have skin boosters and Botox at the same time. In fact, many patients opt for this combination treatment to address multiple concerns. Skin boosters such as Juvederm Volite or Restylane Vital provide deep hydration to the skin, while Botox can smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. However, it’s important to discuss your goals with your practitioner to determine if this combination is right for you.

What not to mix with Botox?

It’s important to avoid certain medications and supplements before and after Botox injections to minimise the risk of bruising and bleeding. These include blood thinners such as aspirin and ibuprofen, fish oil supplements, and vitamin E supplements. Your practitioner will provide specific instructions on what to avoid before and after treatment.

What is better than Profhilo?

While Profhilo is a highly effective treatment for skin laxity and hydration, When it comes to the under eyes, it is recommended to use a different treatment instead of Profhilo. Canova Medical offers tear trough fillers as an alternative, which are specifically designed for this delicate area.

Does Profhilo change your face shape?

No, Profhilo is designed to restore volume and hydration to the skin without altering the overall shape of the face.

Does Profhilo make your face look bigger?

Again, no. Profhilo is designed to improve the quality and appearance of the skin, without adding any extra volume to the face.

Will Profhilo make me look younger?

Profhilo is designed to improve the appearance of the skin, giving it a more youthful and radiant glow. While it will not stop the ageing process, it can help to reduce the visible signs of ageing and improve overall skin health.

Why is my face puffy after Profhilo?

Some patients may experience mild swelling after Profhilo treatment. This is a normal reaction and usually subsides within a few days. Applying a cool compress to the area can help to reduce any swelling or discomfort.
